I can select one of two inputs on my TV to watch TV: I can select the "TV" input which is the cable from the cable box to the TV, or I can select the component input on the TV that is from the cable box to my TV to get picture from the yellow input on the TV.
What I'm saying is that I can have the AVR set to Cable/SAT (which in this instance is the red/white audio cables coming from the cable box), but then have the input on my TV set to HDMI (The HDMI cable that is coming from the AVR to my TV). For whatever reason, if I have this input selected (HDMI) on my TV the audio appears to fire up quicker. This could be my imagination and that was my question if if this would have any impact. My guess is no, but I just wanted to ask.
Sorry if this sounds confusing, but you would understand if you saw it setup.
