Denon AVR-1912 Split Screen capability?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I'm thinking about replacing my current analog, audio-only amp with a Denon AVR-1912.

It seems like the perfect amp for me, but one thing I like to do is to use the split screen function of my TV, so I can play PS3 on one side of the TV and my girlfriend can watch TV. Obviously only one source can be heard but I don't mind playing in silence every now and then.

I can achieve split screen because all my video sources go into the TV first, which then sends audio to the amp via the headphone socket. With the Denon (and any AV amp), the video sources will go first to the amp and then to the TV via a single HDMI lead. Therefore there is only one input to the TV so the TV can no longer do split screen.

Does anyone know if the Denon has the ability to do split screen itself? My ideal solution is where the amp can handle split screen for both audio and video - ie it does split screen on video, and I can also choose different outputs for each audio source. E.g. TV displays PS3 on one side and TV on the other, and I can tell the amp to output the TV to the speakers and the PS3 to headphones. Is this possible?

Thanks

The Denon AVR is only going to feed one video source .... so no, not possible.

For more questions or general information about any of the new XX12 Denon AVRs, join us in the Denon AVR-XX12 Owner's thread by clicking on the link in my sig.

Thanks for the reply. Are you able to advise what sort of technology/specifications I need to look for in an amp to do what I'm after?

I'm not really that familiar with the split screen feature although my understanding is the TV has to be receiving two video signals and AFAIK, there is no AVR that will allow that to happen.
