Home theater set-up HDMI/component cables

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a front projector in my theater that doesnt have HDMI. Is it possible to use component to the projector from my AVR and still receive the HD audio by connecting an HDMI cable from my Blu-Ray and Satelite receiver to my AVR. In effect I would be using component for video and HDMI for audio simultaneously.

Is it possible to do with an AVR that has that capability? Yes.

Is it possible to do with your AVR? Who knows... you didn't say which AVR you have...

I can think of reasons why it either wouldn't work or would work with lip-synch issues. The equipment's documentation usually lacks information about odd setups like this.

All things considered you should just give it a try with short cables, and an unmounted projector.

as the question is stated, no, as no avr will take a hdmi video signal and output it over component...

Rather than HDMI, use the digital audio outputs--coax or optical-- of the source equipment for your audio and use that along with the component video and you'll be good.
