I have a OPPO 981 player that handles 5.1 discs like DVD-A, SACD, and DTS. For Christmas, I finally got a 40" Samsung LCD HD TV and a Panasonic Blu-Ray. Lastly, I just got a Pioneer VSX-1019, which has 4 HDMI inputs and one HDMI output, as well as 5.1 analog inputs. I having one cable for Blu-Ray movies. My issue today was trying to figure out how I could access the HDMI connection from my Oppo to display tracks on my TV, but also access the 5.1 analog inputs for music. Surely there is a n easier way to do this! After trying numerous combination paths on the remote, I finally tried the manual. Nothing about this whatsoever. I thought for several minutes, then it hit me. I don't have to hook up thethe HDMI from the Oppo through the receiver because I only need the video for the TV. My Samsung TV has 3 HDMI inputs, so I can plug the Oppo directly into the HDMI input on the TV! DOH!!! Did I Feel stupid. Anyone else ever stuggle with a similar situation?
