which to use for HDMI switch hub. amp.or TV or both?
I read that most TVs will not output 5.1 sound from either toslink or HDMI output. the TV only outputs 2.1.
so this means all sources should be connected to amp. in w/HDMI then
out of amp. w/ HDMI into TV. (TV is Samsung PN58c500).
?1.so in order to get 5.1 sound on 3 sources (for me 1.TV, 2.DVR,3,DVD player)
this requires a amp. w/ a minium of 3 HDMIs in correct?
?1.5. connected like this is a Tosh link still required?
?2.so I could'nt use both the TV and the amp. as switching hubs and expect 5.1 on all three sources?
edit: I would like to use the Samsung remote to control TV,DVD player and amp. volume though it's anynet link.
reason I ask I'm concidering a Denon1609 amp. and it only has 2 HDMI inputs. when I ran out of USB ports on my laptop I added 3 w/ an extrenal hub.
are there simiarial HDMI expandable hubs?
