Question about Yamaha RX-V463 Receiver
I have AT&T Uverse in one of the HDMI connections. I am going to get a Blue Ray to connect to other HDMI input. Since there is only one HDMI output to the TV, how does the Reciever know to play the Blue instead of the Uverse? Does it detect the Blue Ray signal on?
Also, I would like to know in the mean time I have a regular DVD player, which connection would be better? S-Video or Component RCA plugs?
Each HDMI port has its own source, such as DVD, Radio, etc. When you switch sources on the receiver, it sends the appropriate signal to the television. If I'm not mistaken, the 463 is only a pass through unit not a converting one so it you hooked up your DVD player through the S Video or Component it may not send the signal to your television through the HDMI, since it takes a converter to change the source from Analog to Digital. May be wrong on the unit though.
Component is better than S-Video. Also, use a fiber optic cable for sound from your DVD player if it has one. This setup will be the closest to HDMI, some argue better.
