I use an older Harmon Kardon AVR525 for my audio processing, I bought it before there was any abundance of HDMI. It's located a fair distance from the display, and has a DVD player and a HD sat receiver plugged in via component video. There is no HDMI on board the AVR.
I"d like to buy a gaming console (or two, an xbox 360 and a PS3). and locate them on the stand where the tv is.
IF I plug the gaming consoles into the HDMI inputs on the display, will the display extract the audio from the HDMI signal and send it out the toslink audio out connector at the back of the display? This would be great if it can, because then my display will become the game console audio switcher - all I need to do is string either a toslink optical to my AVR. or a coax audio after a toslink/coax converter.
