Hi, I have just completed this installation myself.
You are correct, HDMI to Amp Input from Bluray and then HDMI from Amp output to TV. Coloured cables are not required to operate the bluray now.
Good luck

Connecting a Samsung 620 1 6203 tv to sony str-d1015 receiver ?


If this is an older surround sound receiver and you're trying to hook it up to a flat screen LCD LED TV the only option would be to use the yellow video out to the yellow video in on the back of your TV. Most new TVs have HDMI inputs so to hook up the receiver to that you would either have to use a converter which can be purchased through Mcm Electronics or you can run the sound through your receiver using the red and white or if it's surround sound the coaxial Jack what will be orange in color or the digital jack which would be a small square black hinged door on the back. And then you could run the HDMI directly to your TV from your DVD player or Blu ray player or cable box

I'm not sure of your exact setup but I will try to help. The Blu ray player probably has a couple of options as far as output. Two I would have to figure being; HDMI out and a DIgital optical out. I'm assuming you are going into the receiver input then out to tv because you have multiple inputs to tv. If you don't have multiple outputs to tv you could get video straight from blu ray to tv and audio out to reciever then out to tv. HDMI would be your best bet because it handles video and sound. To do this, you would have to have a HDMI in/out on your receiver and a HDMI in on your tv. If you can't do HDMI for audio then there should be a Digital optical output on your Blu ray which could go to your receiver, providing you have the input. If you could provde the model numbers for the units. I could probably be of morre assisiiance.

Does you television have an "Optical Audio Output"? This would be the best and easiest way to get surround sound from your system. If your TV has an optical output the you can use an Optical Cable to connect the TV to the reciver. This way whatever you are watching from the TV will be in surround sound. The HDMI connection sends a surround sound signal from each device to the television. If you connect it to this output on the TV then make sure the optical output is turned on in you telivison's menu. If your TV does not have an Optical Audio Output then you will need to connect each optical output from the blu-ray and HDbox to your reciever. Your reciever will need to have two Input channels(one for each device). Then you can select that input to the device(blu-ray or HDbox) that you are using. The optical cable is the best way to go for surround sound because it is pure digital and produces the best sound. If the HDbox or Blu-Ray does not have an optical output then you will need the six rca jacks to get the surround sound. Let me know further info on what you have so I can assist you more.

If you would like to use high definition audio decoding, connect the HDMI from the blu ray player to the receiver. If that it not an option for you due to lack of equipment such as an additional HDMI cable to go from the receiver to the television for the video portion of the signal, then connect your optical cable again. After the optical cable is connected, make sure the Dolby Digital decoding is enabled on the receiver, and that the media you are playing also has a version of 5.1 surround sound. Then, enter the setup menu of the player (which I suspect this is actually where the problem might reside in your case) and make sure that Dolby Digital and DTS are not set to "downmix." Dolby Digital should be set to output Dolby Digital and so on and so forth...hope this helped.

I just bought a Blue Ray player but my surround sound has a dvd player built in and only one input which I have my new Sharp TV plugged into. How can I hook up my Blue Ray . I have the HDMI cables


Depending on if your surround system has a hdmi input or not. if it does you can connect the blu-ray player to it. If it doesn't have an hdmi input you will have to run the hdmi cable from the blu-ray to the tv then run a set of rca cables (red and white plugs) from the tv audio out to the surround systems' audio input jacks to get sound through the surround system. Most surround systems don't have an auxiliary input for another video device.

How to connect BLU-RAY DVD player to Pioneer Plasma TV via HDMI


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

No sound when using Panny plasma with RX-V3800


Let me see if I understand. You have one HDMI cable linking your TV and AVR? This is only to send video and sound out to your TV from the AVR you will not be able to send sound back over this same cable. You'll have to use the TVs audio out and connect it to an input of the AVR. The "HDMI out" on the AVR is just that Out and not In. For more questions I'd recommend checking out the RX-V3800 RX-V1800 thread over on AVSforum.com

Playstation 3 audio connection into Yamaha HTR-6040 AV Receiver


Is Yamaha HTR-640 a receiver? Try HDMI from PS3 to receiver or Sony HDTV. If HDMI from PS3 to receiver the you need and HDMI from receiver to out Sony HDTV. You could connect everything to receiver and HDMI out to HDTV. You can not have an HDMI cable AND an optical cable coming out of the PS3, only one or the other.
