Hello y'all! My first post and surely not the last!  I have a Denon 3808ci and am scratching my head trying to figure out how I can still watch tv, which is hooked up to the Denon for surround sound via hdmi cable. Is it possible to still get video and then be able to get audio from another source simultaneously! I like to watch sports but still be able to have some tunes or listen to the local announcers for the football games. I think I might be able to do it through the zones 2 or 3 but have been unsuccessful. Not even sure if this is possible, but keep thinking there must be a way. Any help out there? Thanks!

I'm assuming you have cable or satellite for your source and there is some type of decoding box used since you mentioned HDMI.  What other video outputs are available on your cable box/sat receiver.  Connect those outputs directly to the TV.  Tune your Denon to whatever radio station you want to listen to.

Exactly! I knew it could be done, but was trying to make it too complicated. Had to step out of the tangled mess of wires back here to realize the simplicity of it!  Thanks for the quick response Robert!

Don’t know how it is with your receiver, but with mine I can switch from a video input (like satellite) to any audio source, and the picture remains on the screen.  (All my sources are connected to the receiver.)
