I have a question. I have an Oppo DV-980H DVD/SACD player and just hooked up cables to the analog multi-ch outputs to my RX-A700 just to see how it compares to an HDMI connection. Can I have both HDMI and multi-ch analog connections to my receiver and get sound from both connections? I am not getting any sound thru the multi-ch connections. Was thinking maybe the HDMI connection was overriding the analog connections? I switch the input on the Yammy to Multi Ch and no sound. Switch to HDMI and it plays fine.
Also, it says in the manual that you can output video from an HDMI input while using the multi ch input for sound on the A700 during SACD play, but it does not explain how to do this. Maybe I am reading the manual wrong, but is it possible to display the Oppo video on the TV while listening to the analog multi ch sound? So in essence video from the HDMI connection and audio from the analog multi ch connection. Since I have both connected I was trying to figure out how to do this, but maybe it isn't possible. Doesn't really matter if I am not even getting sound from the analog multi ch connections I guess. But was just curious. Thx.
