Thanks for your reply. I also have read the threads you suggested. Seems I have been missing out on a whole different world. LOL.
Now I have some other questions based on your response. Hope you can help me with some suggestions.
6. None of my AV equipments are new and they do not come with the HDMI connection. I know that I have to replace them eventually - but at this moment I need to connect three of these non-HDMI equipment (STB, DVD Player, Digital Satellite Receiver) to the Denon 3312 AVR. Looking at the diagram of the rear panel of the AVR, I can see there are two component input connections. How do I connect the third equipment? Please note all three equipment has component connection with the DVD Player having S Vidoe, Coaxial Digital Audio Out and Optical Digital Audio Out; STB having DVI, RGB, S Video, Coaxial Digital Audio Out, and Optical Audio Out.
7. I read in other threads that Zone 2 does not play HDMI inputs. Is that correct? If it is - I am OK currently since all my AV equipment would be non-HDMI. But in future if I upgrade to products with HDMI connection, how would I play them on Zone 2? A possible solution can be running the TV audio through the AVR. Please note, the TV is not a smart one and it does not come with ARC features (as mentioned in your reply # 5). What would be the alternative way to run the TV audio through the AVR?
8. If I want to play online content on the AVR without connecting the computer direct to the AVR, what can be possible solution? Will buying a media centre help? I also like to have additional functions like storage of media content and recording of content received over STB or Stallite Receiver. Do you recommend any specific or combination of products? I am not after something beru high end. Mid-range but can do the job is fine with me.
