Re: How to hook up your receiver properly

I can, but if properly implemented, it should not. I would hook it up whichever way is easiest for input switching, usually through the AVR.

Re: How to hook up your receiver properly

I have an older receiver without HTMI and purchasing a front projector Epson 8350 and need to hook up the following components:

Denon AVR 5800 (about 10 years old, no HTMI, several optical, several S video, several component)
Epson 8350 front projector (one HTMI, one component, one S-video, one Video & one PC)
Direct TV (one HTMI, one optical, one S video connection , three component out, one coxial, 1 USB,
1 ethernet & 1 digital audio)
Toshiba SD 6200n (one optical, one S video, component without HTMI)
PS2 (1 HTMI,1 Lans & 1 optical output)

blue ray hook up
My receiver does not have the HTMI cables, do I go HTMI from the Epson 8350,projector to the PS2 for blu ray and then go component from the PS2 to the receiver?

Direct TV hook up
component cables to projector and receiver? the Epson 8350 only has one component connection that I already used on the blu ray unit above.

DVD
component to receiver?

Thanks in advance for your reply, I appreciate it very much.

Re: How to hook up your receiver properly

Always use the highest quality video and audio connection you can so without HDMI component video is your next best option and using either optical or coaxial for audio is fine.
For the PS3 if it has component then just use that to the receiver and use the receiver as the switch for all video inputs. You can also run HDMI directly to the projector from the PS3 but then you may run into audio sync issues but try it and see. You would then need to switch inputs on the projector depending on what your using.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

Re: How to hook up your receiver properly

Then as long as you dont mind switching inputs on the projector going HDMI directly to the projector would be a good choice and use component to the projector from the receiver for the other video sources would be the best option. If you dont already have the cables Monoprice is a great place to get them do not buy the expensive Monster or other cables.

Re: How to hook up your receiver properly

remember the above mentioned hookup is only the best option if your receiver does not have HDMI inputs. If it does HDMI to the receiver is the only way to receive the uncompressed audio formats unless you have analog multi channel inputs on the receiver as well (most receivers under $600 do not).
