Question about Denon AVR-3805 Receiver
I have a Denon AVR-3805 which doesn't support HDMI. I want to replace my DVD player with a BLU-RAY. My current DVD and my Pioneer Elite Plasma are connected to the AVR-3805 using 5.1 surround sound with Component Video cables. Can I connect the BLU-RAY so that it utilzes the HDMI input on the controller for my Pioneer Plasma, bypassing the AVR? If so what would happen to the sound? If I don't use HDMI what will I lose on the BLU-RAY? Thanks ...........
The best possible solution to your problem is :
Connect your blu ray player directly to the HDMI input of you Plasma and watch HD video....
and connect the 5.1/7.1 sound thru the optical or the coaxial link directly to your AVR 3805.
You will not loose anything on the Blu-Ray.
The sound is best processsed by the AVR3805, while the video, which is the real upgrade (BluRay) in terms of resolution of picture would be processed by your plasma.
Connect and Enjoy

Connect Blu Ray HDMI output directly to your Plasma TV, while the audio output via optical or coaxial to the AVR.
