I have a Pioneer VSK-2020K which I recently purchased. Previously I had a Denon which I was quite happy with but I wanted to upgrade after all these years as mainly the cabling had become more 'digitalized' - meaning more HDMI type inputs and the upscaling ability of this receiver was quite impressive.
Now, as it is our want, most sports fans in the UK have the great advantage of a wonderful and alternate sports commentary on the radio simultaneously broadcast with the TV output. A great many of us like to watch TV but listen to the audio commentary from the Radio or device carrying the radio..e.g 2nd Satellite receiver. Now with the old composite cables (yellow/red/white) the video and audio was split and you could chose an alternate video or audio on the OLD receivers.
Is this possible on these new HDMI type receivers ? or is it a thing of the past. The only way I can possibly see to do this is to use component cables which just carry video and mix with a chosen optical cable. Not many component connections compared to HDMI and optical cables extra which was ONE of the reasons for upgrading anywayt..reduce cabling...
Anybody been there..done that...etc...???
