Darn -- I keep forgetting my user ID on this forum (only one where I don't use w7ox). Guess I need to visit more often
I may be back later today. I'm setting up the 210 with my old 34" Sony tube set (34XBR800 or some such), which has DVI (one) vs. HDMI. With my current Panny BD player I use an HDMI cable, HDMI-DVI adapter at the TV end, and run audio separately from L-R audio at the back of the BD player. BUT the new models like the 210 have fewer output options. Eventually I'll need to go to a bigger set with HDMI -- but my wife is happy with the 9 year old Sony (which still works fine after my 2008 replacement of a couple of ICs). And my lifting limit now is 10 lbs (carotid artery surgery last Monday)
Fingers crossed that this will be a simple R&R with my old BD player
And I just found this on-topic thread http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1359937
. It says I will lose audio quality by using those analog audio outputs (not a problem, I'm deaf in one ear). Also has some thoughts on menu options for this approach: Those could be very helpful
