Hey guys, I posted this in the owners' thread, but didn't get a response, so if perhaps one of you could answer this here for me I'd be very grateful:
I'm "thinking" about a PT-AE7000U, but I have concerns about my receiver. It's an Onkyo TX-SR707. I have my PS3, XBOX 360, and Mac mini all connected to it via HDMI, and then one single HDMI cable going out to the TV. I'd like to keep it this way!
My thoughts are these:
I know that for 3D, I need a new receiver, OR I can get e.g. a Panasonic 310BT which has the dual HDMI outputs, and just send audio to the receiver via the one HDMI out, and video direct to the projector via the other HDMI out. However, that causes a problem for me in that I'd have to use TWO inputs on the projector (one for PS3/360/Mac mini, and the other dedicated to the Panasonic Blu-ray player). Since there are no discrete IR codes for the Panasonic line of projectors, I'd like to somehow be able to just use HDMI 1 on the projector. Will this work? :
Connect Mac mini, XBOX 360, PS3 to the Onkyo receiver, all via HDMI. Connect Panasonic Blu-ray player audio over HDMI to Onkyo receiver. Connect the second HDMI connection (video) from the Panasonic Blu-ray player to an HDMI 1.3b switch with discrete codes (this one: http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...mat=4#feedback
). Then have the output from the HDMI switch go to the PT-AE7000U's HDMI 1 port.
Then connect the HDMI out from the Onkyo receiver to the HDMI switch.
So that would leave everything still connecting to the HDMI 1 on the PT-AE7000, right? Will that work, and give me 3D movies, HD audio, and my PS3/360/Mac mini all working, too?
Sorry if this is confusing, but I hope someone can tell me if this will work!
