Just one thing that I don't understand though...
I bought a BD-E5400 Blueray player. Only has HDMI output. My amplifier doesn't have HDMI on it but has optical and is capable of DTS (it's been in the past, with a standard DVD player plugged in with optical cable). So I figured "hey, let's plug the Blueray into the TV and plug the optical output into the amplifier, it should work!"
I can't change the output setting in the menus on the TV...it's kind of greyed out...
Any ideas? I can't belive it doesn't work...
I think that has to do with HDCP. If it comes in through HDMI, then it has to leave through an HDCP enables HDMI port if it is of a certain quality. If you could plug in an optical cable out to a PC for instance, there is no content protection there, and you could record high def audio. That would make the MPAA sad. So they make your life miserable with hardware based content protection schemes. Yay..
Don't feel bad, I couldn't even use a freaking DVR via HDMI to a 42" RCA 1080p HDTV trying to hook stuff up at my parents house. I had to resort to component cables for it to even work at all because the crap RCA HDTV had HDMI, but was not HDCP enabled. What a bunch of BS. Ended up replacing the TV eventually because it wouldn't work with a blu ray player either, at all via HDMI.
You probably need to just get a modern HDMI AVR and be done with it, then connect BD player to AVR, then connect TV to AVR via HDMI.
I think if you had component hookup on the BD player you could hook it up thew way you want, but you'd only get 1080i, not 1080p.
It may be just a setting in there though,and if you set it just right, it might work.

I had an issue once with my old Yamaha AVR that got cleared up after unplugging it for a while though. I guess its kind of like rebooting your PC or cable box.
