The only drawback is you have to switch inputs on t.v. and amp no big deal. Also h.d.m.i. switching amps cost a lot more I use my Denon 3805 for audio switching only good luck stewee
We are buying a Samsung HD plasma and an samsung up conversion DVD player. We will hook it up using an HDMI cable. Will there be a picture difference using the Up converting player compared to a standard progressive scan player.
Also, our reciever does not HDMI inputs. If we run the HDMI directly to our TV and then connect an optical cable to the optical cable out on the set and run that to the reciever, Will that work so we can have the great picture quality as well as Dolby Digital through the reciever?
