Hey all, I've used the search feature but can't seem to find the answer I'm looking for. I know that HDMI is both uncompressed audio and video, so here is my question. If I run HDMI out of my DVD player (Oppo 971H) into my Denon, do I need my optical cable for audio? Will the Denon automatically seperate the audio from the video? Also, will the 3806 allow me to use both HDMI and component monitor outs?
