I have a Denon 3806/3910 combo, planning to buy Panny BD-55. So, the setup similar to yours, but my AVR has HDMI inputs. I thought that the only option for me to get HD-res audio formats from BD-55 was the analog outs, but somebody on different thread (maybe even you ?) has corrected me that I can still use HDMI.
That means: HDMi 1.3 device (player) , after decoding, would send m/ch PCM signal to the HDMI 1.1 device (AVR), with no problem. Is that correct ??? That's really a crucial question.
The benefit of this solution would be to take advantage of 3806 excellent DACs and the speakers config/bass management options in AVR. Can you confirm that please ?
Thanks in advance.
