Hi,

Might be a stupid question, but the receiver of the ONKYO HT-S3500 doesn't have an HDMI port which is written PC over it. Higher quality models do have an HDMI port with PC on it.

Here is a picture of what I mean :

No PC HDMI port : http://www.onkyousa.com/imagesNew/systems/ht-s3500/back_large.jpg
With PC HDMI port : http://www.onkyousa.com/imagesNew/systems/ht-s7500/back_large.jpg

So, can I connect a PC to an ONKYO HT-S3500 receiver with a HDMI which doesn't have PC written over it ?

Thanks for helping a newbie ! smile.gif

HDMI is hdmi. Doesn't matter if it is labelled as such. It will work.

What about 3D, does every receiver with HDMI will work with 3D ?

Must be something unique to HTIB setups as I've never seen an HDMI jack labeled as "PC" on an AVR. An AVR must be HDMI 1.4 certified in order to pass full 1080p 3D video and virtually all models released in the past 3 years are HDMI 1.4.
