So in your example, if one is using the default sources names for HDMI1-4 then (as noted on the diagram on left side of p. 46) you still have 4 HDMI source names left for the 3 remaining HDMI inputs (excluding the AUX input) which are PC, TV/CD, PHONO, and PORT. As noted on the diagram on the right side of p. 46, you also have all of these same source names which can be assigned to the YPbPr inputs. If you've already used one for an HDMI source, you can still use it for the YPbPr source noting that if the HDMI source is "ON" it will take priority. Hopefully this clarification and describing your actual inputs as wl1 has suggested will make it more clear.
OK, thanks so much wl1 and jdsmoothie. I've been "away" doing the grim stuff re my father's death.
Most of the below is an echo of what you two have surmissed since I posted but I wrote this a while back so am throwing it out for confirmation.
My HDMI inputs are assigned as follows:
HDMI 1 BD/DVD = Oppo DVD
HDMI 2 VCR/DVR = OTA antenna STB
HDMI 3 CBL/SAT = Cable STB
HDMI 4 GAME = Plan to use
HDMI 5 PC = Not used but appears to be RGB video and R/L audio or
HDMI 6 No Name = Not used
HDMI 7 No Name = Not used
My first question is if I were to assign HDMI 6 and 7 what names would they get? The indication on page 46 is that PORT, TV/CD, and of course Phono and AUX are unavailable as Names. Following that notion in my case, it seems I have just one more assignable input name being PC unless I'm wrong about PORT and TV/CD - and I think I am wrong having just re-read the avoidable caveats re the PORT and TV/CD names. They would become available as long as the Universal Port is unused
and I don't
have RIHD enabled. Both true.
So now it seems I have three Source Names left: PORT, TV/CD and PC.YPrPb Component Analog Video Input Usage:
Plans are to use at least one of the two YPrPb Component inputs and have video directed to HDMI OUT MAIN. That will require using the special Component Video Input menu to link one (or two) of these three remaining unused Source Names (like PORT and PC) to IN1 and/or IN2 so that seems cool. The original HDMI 1 - 4 assignments are thus so far undisturbed. Correct?480i Analog Video Input Usage:
But, plans may include a Video or S-Video input and I now see what looks like a potential issue. On the rear panel it seems that the three Video/S-video inputs are hard -assigned with HDMI Source Names I'm already using for digital HDMI inputs 2, 3 and 4 - yes? This is where the manual quits and loses me.
- Let's say I connect an analog-only game (Wii) to the rear panel GAME input using standard yellow, red and white RCA cables. Must I now move my HDMI cable from the original HDMI 4 GAME input to say HDMI 6 and then call it what TV/CD. because a) I can't assign it as GAME anymore and, b) PORT and PC were taken by the Component inputs, above? And, I must enter ----- as the assignment for HDMI 4, yes?
- If so, how does the Onk know I have a composite Video or S-Video device connected to GAME in the rear panel analog video/audio area? Does the ----- in the HDMI assignment section tells it to look elsewhere for the actual source?
It seems in my case, there are a total of seven Assignable A/V inputs with Source Names where there are physically seven HDMI inputs, two YPrPb Component A/V inputs and three 480i-only A/V inputs making a total of 12 inputs which must be named with only seven Source Names . Right? Not a problem just checking my understanding.
