I currently have a DirecTV HR20 HD-DVR connected to the Panny with a HDMI-DVI adapter, and it works fine. However, reading about all of the ssues when connecting multiple HDMI sources to a receiver acting as an HDMI switch to an HDMI display has me concerned. Now throw in the wrinkle that my display is DVI and not HDMI and I really wonder if it will all work as it should.
Anyone have this kind of setup working or care to speculate if this will work?
From the manual:
• An HDMI connection can only be made with DVI-equipped components compatible with both DVI and High Bandwidth Digital Content
Protection (HDCP). If you choose to connect to a DVI connector, you will need a separate adaptor (DVIHDMI) to do so. A DVI connection,
however, does not support audio signals. Consult your local audio dealer for more information. page 17
There are various references on the pictures to suggest HDMI/DVI connections.
It's only speculation, but it appears it should work, Mike. You just need a HDMI to DVI connector (which you have) from the SC-07 to the TV Audio shouldn't matter if you are using the SC-07/05, unless you want to use your display's speakers, then you would need to add an additional connection (analog or digital) from either the SC-07 or your HR-20 to the TV as well. Your set should be HDCP compliant. Sorry, that's all I can find. Hopefully another user with DVI equipment will confirm one way or another.
If if works now with your HR-20, I don't see why it would not work with the SC-07.. the HR-20 has HDMI out I believe.
