I replaced my non-HDMI TV with a Panasonic 3D TV. From a PS3, I used HDMI directly to the TV and an optical cable to the 2807. I don't used HDMI on the 2807.
I was thinking of replacing the PS3 with a Blu ray player (like Oppo BDP-103) with dual HDMI output. If I configure the Oppo HDMI as Split A/V where HDMI 1 goes to the TV for video, and HDMI 2 goes to HDMI input on the Denon 2807 for audio (having a dummy video stream), do I still need to connect an HDMI cable from the 2807 HDMI out to the TV in order to get sound? Currently, I only use component connection from 2807 to TV for Menu Setup.
I want to use HDMI audio so I can get lossless High Definition audio from the blu ray.
I don't like to use analog connections from the Oppo to the ext. in of the 2807 if it disables Audyssey.
I really like the Denon 2807, and I don't intend to replace it soon.
