Let me point out that I am just a newbie - and there are a lot of people qualified than me to give their first impressions. It sounds amazing - and certainly compared to my 2808ci I see a difference.
My rest of the set up stayed the same.
Cohenfive - I am curious about your setup - the cable box you are using - maybe you can have two outputs - one hdmi to carry everything over to the receiver and then to TV and second is the Component + optical to the TV and then use the universal remote to set two different activities.
I am certain someone has thought of this.
my setup is going to be the following, and if the experts here advise differently let me know....it is going to happen over the course of the following week as i have to buy some things (more hdmi cables ordered from monoprice already, powerline still needs to be found)...
hd/dvr/cable box from comcast--i guess i'll try using one 1.3 hdmi cable into the 3808.
hd dvd player--again, one hdmi cable into the 3808...i know, bad choice of format!!
old sony high end cd player--analog inputs into 3808
yet to be purchased internet/bluray player--again, one hdmi into the 3808.
as i said above, i'm planning on getting powerline to get our network to this room, easier/cheaper than a hard wire install. when i do this i will be plugging ethernet into both the 3808 and the bluray player.
the above should give me everything i want in terms of media (local from my pc as well as online content), disks and cable.
does this sound sensible??
