Thanks, both of you. Seems the way to do this is connect both source components (Blu-ray and cable box) via both HDMI (as they are now) and analog.
I understand that perhaps, with either source being played, both analog outputs (VCR and DVR) would then be hot. So, if the AVR input is BD, then the BD would be ouput via HDMI, and both analog VCR and analog DVR. Does this sound right? Wouldn't need a switch, then. Perhaps it depends upon the model receiver.
I also need to confirm the Blu-ray player will output HDMI and analog concurrently. Per the manual, under "Audio Output Priority", my options are:
HDMI - Outputs audio signals from the HDMI OUT jack.
Coaxial/Optical - Outputs audio signals from the DIGITAL OUT (OPTICAL/COAXIAL) jack.
Stereo Analog - Outputs audio signals from the LINE OUT (R-AUDIOL) jacks.
Doesn't seem to be a "priority", but rather a selection. This suggests I can choose only one output, and not more than one output.
