I am new to the forum. My name is Mike. I wouldn't consider myself an amateur, but I am far from an expert. I have a 47" LG LED 3D Google TV, LG BP620 3D Blu Ray player, Yamaha RX-V463 receiver, Definitive Technology ProCinema 60 center and surrounds, and Definitive Technology BP-8020ST Bi Polar Supertower fronts. I tried running my Blu Ray through my receiver but 3D wouldn't work. I still have my cable box run through my receiver with hdmi, but I had to run my blu ray hdmi direct to my tv then I ran optical from my tv sound out to my receiver. Would I be able to get an hdmi splitter and run one to the tv and one to the receiver for my blu ray? Would I really notice a difference from optical to hdmi? If so should I get a passive splitter or a powered splitter? What would you guys do with my setup (and don't say buy a new receiver, haha)? Thanks guys.
