Is Pass Thru HDMI Still an issue with Cable boxes
I have an older Denon that can do hdmi pass through on standby. Four years ago when I bought this receiver, I was told that I should not "pass through" cable box HDMI signals because of conflicts and HDCP issues. So I did not use the pass through function.
Instead I connected the cable box directly to the TV using HDMI and a digital coax cable from the cable box to the Receiver. For the most part this alternative works fine especially with my harmony remote. HOWEVER, I have not been able to get my cable box to send pure dolby digital signals to the receiver. So instead I have to settle for Dolby Pro Logic II or some other option when watching tv through my surround sound
With football season around the corner, I am tempted to consider "passing through" the cable box HDMI signal to my receiver. Does anyone know if this isstill a problem? IS there something else I should be thinking about?
