The administrator was correct; I never had an issue even before the one word posts.

Hi guys, I need help with my HT setup. Currently I have

TV - 64F8500
Bluray - Oppo BDP 105D
Receiver - Panasonic SA-XR55
HDMI Swicher - Monoprice 4x1
Apple TV
TVPad 3
Amazon Fire

Since I used OTA Antenna to get local programming, I used the optical out from TV to Oppo. The Oppo was connected to the receiver using the 5.1 RCA analog connection. I'm currently trying to choose between:

a. Put all those streaming devices (ATV, TVPad3, & Amazon Fire), connect them to HDMI switcher & use the HDMI out to Oppo.
b. Get rid of the HDMI switcher, connect them directly to the TV using the HDMI and let the TV get the audio out using the Optical connection to Oppo.

Which one is a better choice?

Thanks

If you choose B, you lose 5.1 from your other devices other than OTA and OPPO when playing Blu Ray. The tv will not send 5.1 audio from Apple TV and Amazon via optical. I do not know what TVPad3 is, but if that has 5.1 capability, you will lose that too.

Thanks, I guess A is the way to go.

I have Comcast. Come to think of it, when The Walking Dead looked terrible, I DID have Dish.
Anyway the latest episode of Game of Thrones looked good when I watched the broadcast. Maybe not perfect but good. It seems the issue really lies in the compression. The HBO Go streaming video should certainly be worse. The scene where Daenerys is in the catacombs really exposed the compression. Cable/Dish providers may compress some broadcasts but it probably won't be as much compression as a streaming video.

You're correct but cable and dish providers can be pretty egregious in their over-compression as well.

Not as bad as streaming, but there's nothing preventing cable and dish provders from compressing more highly than streaming providers do, either.
