I have been searching for a way to get my Sony STR-DA5400ES receiver to display the volume on my HDTV. I'm using HDMI for all video and audio connections. I've connected a camcorder to the receiver using component cables and the volume appears on the screen when adjusting. I've hear some say it is possible over HDMI and others that it is not. I've yet to locate anything solid one way or the other.
Has anyone managed to get this feature to work. If so, I'd appreciate it if you can share the configuration requirements. If there is no way to view volume when using HDMI, I'd like to confirm that, so I can stop searching once and for all.
In addition, i just picked up a Sony PS3 slim, primarily for the Blu ray, but also some gaming. I've never had one of these consoles before and would like to get the maximum audio and visual playback for the various DVD, Blu Ray, streamed media,games, etc which I plan to run through it. Does anyone have suggestions on what configurations have worked best for them using the 5400ES with a PS3?
