My amplifier a HK avr320 I am fond of.
has hdmi 1.1 not 1.3 or something.
Same is true of a nice onkyo I have.
therefore the audio inputted through hdmi from a given device is AOK, but cannot also get a good video signal to my HD projector.
I can do one or the other, sound over hdmi, which indeed sounds better than over other digital sources to me, or video to the projector.
I have a splitter that routes to different hdmi outputs that is powered, but I guess I am wondering if the opposite works or if their exists a simple solution:
I have seen cheap simple hdmi male to 2 hdmi female Y splitters.
They are so cheap I might as well just try one, right.
Will this work, if so it could save many of us "upgrading" AVR amps or HTPC's routed through our amps.
I have seen the "pin outs" for the different hdmis should be possible, perhaps a custom cable would be the ticket: ouch $$ or a crazy specialized splitter box $$$$$
Will post a related post about Dells in my opinion silly displayport: does it also carry audio?
Does it still carry audio when passed through a hdmi adapter like i am going to try to do using my dell latitude e6500 to stream video and audio in the aforementioned scenario.
