It sounds like fine work on your part developing this work-around, and to make it available to all, could you spell it out a little bit more clearly please?
You have TWO connections from your sat box to the SC-07- component AND HDMI? You lose me with "added a toslink to opt1". What is that- an input or output on the SC-07, and running to what? I know, stupid questions, but I think your workaround is going to be important.
The HR-21 has one HDMI, one Component, 2 composit/audio (red white yellow), one s-video, ethernet, and coaxial and optical outs. Sorry, "added a toslink to opt1
" meant I connected from the optical out of the HR-21 to the optical IN (opt1) of the SC-07.. hope that makes more sense. I also set the SC-07 video conversion to 1080p.
I have the HDMI and Component going into the SC-07 inputs HDMI 1 and Component 2. Max output on the HR-21 via HDMI is 1080i. By using the component, the SC-07 converts the signal to 1080p. The added benifit is if you desire, you can switch from "tv" (now component) to "HDMI1" from the SC-07 remote at will to A/B the quality.. (more to ease your mind then anything else)
Then you program the TV button of the SC-07 to receive video from component 2 and audio from optical input 1. With HDMI control on, when you turn on theTV, it will turn on the SC-07 (if off) and use the settings you programmed (in my case, Component 2 and Opt 1)
Hope that clarifies it a bit, fresno1232001
