Setting up HDMI / DVI port as a selectable Imput

How do I set the HDMI and DVI port/s as selectable imputs for DVD player recorders and Cable DVRs? I have a desire to use the HDMI instead of the normal imputs for my Cable DVRs and DVD player/recorder. Do I have to also connect a Audio Cable set with the HDMI or DVI Cable?

Are the HDMI and DVI ports Bi-Directional?

I appreciate any and all advice and help that you may provide.

Do I have to also connect a Audio Cable set with the HDMI or DVI Cable?
Yes, Audio is still separate.

Are the HDMI and DVI ports Bi-Directional?
It goes one-way, Out from the source (DVD Players / some Game Consoles / Sat Receivers), In on the receiving end (Recorders / TV / Projectors).

A Receiver is perfect for your set-up. All Equipments that broadcasts audio/video signals goes into it, then from it goes to whatever Projector / TV you have.

You can only connect hdmi devices together, if your dvd doesn't have hdmi or dvi you can't connect it using that input.

if you provide me with models of your dvd player and other devices what you want to use, I can look the details up and provide you a better solution. or if you wish you may ask other experts for help.

Thanks,
Ekse

An older television might have DVI instead of HDMI. the difference is that HDMI also carries sound while DVI does only video. You may need a converter box or another converter cable.

Make sure none of the Digital or Component Input Assignments are programmed, if you're not using them. Set them to "----". This may help. Some of the Component input assignments may over-ride your other input assignments (perhaps even the HDMI input assignments).

Can SPN4235 Support Blu Ray Signals?


After I got over my fustration I did a little more reading and discovered that I could use purchase a
HDMI to DVI converter cable. Since DVI, unlike HDMI, is video only I also had to purchase a digital optical (it also carries audio) cable to get sound. It cost me an additional $70 for the two cables but it was worth it. I reasonably happy with the 1080i resolution which is all my SPN4235 is capable of at least until I can afford a new 60" HD Plasma TV.
