I posted this in the subforums for my projector and blu-ray player, before I realized there was a sub-forum just for HDMI related questions.
Need help finding an HDMI switch/splitter to suit my needs. Here's what I plan to do:
Oppo BDP-93 (it has 2 HDMI outs, was planning to just use output HDMI1)
Dune HD Base 3.0
HDMI out from all of these into a switch. Then go dual out from the switch, one leading to my Epson 5020 projector, one leading to my Onkyo 707 (or my Sony MDR-DS7500 wireless headphone transmitter, depending on how I plan to listen to audio). The Onkyo doesn't support 3D and is a older 1.3 hdmi receiver. The Sony headphone box supports 3D and HD audio.
Looking at monoprice.com, they do have 4x2 switches, but the reviews for them seem to indicate that the "splitting" aspect can cause problems with HD audio (amongst other things). I chatted with a monoprice rep and he confirmed the whole "lowest common denominator issue". My guess is this will all work fine when I'm using the headphone box, since it can handle 3D. But if I want to use my old receiver with 3D, I may have to resort to using both HDMI outputs on the BDP-93 (forgive me, I'm thinking this out loud as I go
Any advice? I really want the best 3D/2D video signal getting to the projector, and the best audio signal getting to the receiver/headphones. Surely, projector owners must deal with this all the time.
