Absolutely love this thing. Thanks for the advice and info!
I think I'm going to need your help again though, as the manual doesn't address a problem I'm having.
Is there a way to use a different input for sound while using the HDMI for video? I'm getting some goofiness in how my HTPC is outputting sound (can only get 2-channel via HDMI) and would rather use the optical digital output from my old soundcard for music listening anyway, but if I switch off the HDMI input to the Digital Coax in, I lose the video feed on the HDMI. There are other workarounds for this, but it'd be nice if I could use the HDMI for video, the optical out from for general audio, and allow an exclusive application to use the HDMI for audio when it needs it.
Essentially, what I'm asking, is can an HDMI input be used for video while using an optical digital input for audio?
