Thanks Steve.stevel said:HDMI carries both video and digital audio. Whether that's useful to you depends on what's on the other end.
The cable that came with my HR10 seems fine, but some people report that none was included with theirs. Whatever you do, don't spend $100 for a 2-meter cable at retail stores.
It should, although I haven't tried it. I use HDMI to my TV, and optical to my audio receiver. Works fine.rick31621 said:Thanks Steve.
My 1st HD receiver.
So if I connect the 10-250 to the HD TV with the HDMI cable can I then use the r&l audio out to connect to the stereo receiver? Will the audio out work if the HDMI is utilized?
Guess I didn't read closely enough first time around. You want to use HDMI for audio/video to the TV, then audio from the TV to your amp, I take it.stevel said:Maybe. I think my TV doesn't send the HDMI audio in over the analog audio outs.
I believe the OP meant:stevel said:Maybe. I think my TV doesn't send the HDMI audio in over the analog audio outs.
Thanks you Guys!AbMagFab said:I believe the OP meant:
a) Connect HDMI to TV
b) Connect HR10 L/R analog audio to AV receiver
If he sets the HR10 to no DD, then the TV should play all audio just fine, and the receiver will get all audio as well. His original implication is his receiver can't play any DD/DTS source, so he doesn't want to use the optical out, and as such would turn DD off on the HR10 anyway.
And that should work. (I don't think he was going to daisy-chain the L/R from the TV back to the AV receiver.)
Couldn't agree more with all the above!ebonovic said:As for what is best 720p or 1080i?
Depends on what your TV runs best at.... It would be a personal preference... Me.. I just leave it at 1080i
As for "buying" and HDMI cable.
Ebay... and DON'T by a monster cable.
Also... Honesty with the HDMI issue still in some HR10-250s.. Rule out componenet first, before spending the money on an HDMI cable.
