VSX-1121 HDMI video with component audio?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a media PC hooked up to my VSX-1121. The PC has a video card with HDMI out, and a sound card outputting through an 1/8th inch port. I have an 1/8th-inch-to-RCA adapter feeding into the receiver.

I hooked the HDMI cable into the HDMI port on the receiver labeled "DVD", and hooked the audio cables into the component port on the receiver also labeled "DVD".

Unfortunately, the receiver only gives me video, and no audio. I know that the audio is hooked up correctly because if I unplug the HDMI cable, the audio starts playing. When I plug the HDMI cable back in, the audio stops again. I can't get both at the same time.

I assume that the receiver thinks I want to use HDMI for both video and audio. Is there any way to tell the receiver only to use the video signal from the HDMI cable, and get audio from component-in?

Thanks for any help. I've read through the manual and messed around with a bunch of settings on the receiver but I can't figure it out.

Hi daverd2, have you try pressing the "Signal Sel" button on the remote to cycle to Analog?
