My (simplified) setup:
Denon AVR-4308CI (HDMI1.3a)
Projector RS45 (3D capable)
Lumagen Mini3D (3D capable)
Bluray player (3D Capable, 1 HDMI out)
I'd like to playback 3D BluRay movies with my setup, while keeping the lossless, i.e. HD sound. Bitstreaming for 2D works perfectly by simply looping the HDMI signal through the AVR to the projector. However, with 3D material this does not work. From what I understand a simple HDMI splitter or matrix switcher between player and AVR / projector will not work, as the signal contains video and audio. Since the AVR is not 3D capable, the entire signal chain is considered non-3D capable. This results in either no sound or video or both. I would need a device that strips the (3D) video portion out of the HDMI signal for the AVR signal path, while leaving the audio portion intact. On the same token this device would pass through the video (and audio) to the projector.
I have heard that certain video processors can do it, also Oppo players also have 2 HDMI out, maybe for this purpose. However, I am hoping for a less costly solution.
Any ideas or suggestions?
