There are problems when you run your sat or cable hi-def system thru the amp most amps will not pass thru a h.d.m.i. source For a fool proof set up buy a a/v/ amp without the h.d.m.i. switching feature amp will be much cheaper. Just run all yopur vidio straight to the t.v. and audio straight to the amp Just switch inputs on amp and t.v. no problems. Also I did a test with my set up My friend just bought a new Kenwood h.d.m.i. switching amp I ran my new Sony blue ray player and Dish network hi-def system thru it and what happened the d.v.d. picture would flash on and off also I got no picture at all with the dish system But iam old fashoned I dont run anything thru something to feed another thing stewe
I am looking into getting a to get a sound system. Some of the features that confused me are HDMI pass through, HDMI upconversion. What do theses really mean? Can you direct me to a website where I can read into this some more?
