No, that won't be good. I then will be downgraded to analogue.
I will also still have to run new cables.
This is what I have now:
I have Zone A and B blu-rays. I'm from New Zealand so we are Zone B.
I have a Zone A Playstation 3 USA
Zone A,B,C Oppo BDP-83 which I leave on Zone A
Zone B Denon 1611 Blu-ray.
If I want to watch Zone A. I put it in the Oppo. If I want Zone B
then I put it in the Denon. If I have a problem with a machine or Disc
one of the other players can do it.
All three players are inputted into the Denon 3808 using HDMI. I then
run a Audioquest 10 meter HDMI cable up to a Cineversum Blackwing 3
(JVC DILA projector) from the 3808.
I have recently purchased a Benq DLP 3D projector just to use on 3D.
So I was looking for a solution to use the Denon 1611 to feed it 3D.
The way I look at it I could do the following:
Feed the HDMI cable straight up to the Benq projector from the 1611
and plug a coax cable to the 3808. With this solution if I wanted to watch
2D from this or the other players I will have to grab the cable going from the
Denon player to the benq and re plug it back into the amp and Cineversum
Projector. Just the way I have it now. Not a good solution.
I could buy a new 3D capable amp. Don't really want to.
Send the Benq projector back and not worry about 3D. I am really
thinking about doing this. If I had to choose 3D or the 3808 amp. I
think the 3808 would win.
Some other solution of connecting the Denon 1611 to the Benq
and the amp for 2D and 3D. Like I previously posted below:
Split the HDMI signal from 1611 and send one to a splitter pass
the 3808 chain and one to the 3808. Run coax to the amp for Sound
on 3D. Split HDMI output (3808) cable in two, have one input from amp
and one from player.
If 2D then the amp will decode the soundtrack (HDMI) and send the picture.
If 3D. It get messy. HDMI will go to HDMI splitter from Player and go to
splitter out of amp, then go to splitter by projector (running 2 projectors
1 for 2D, Cineversum Blackwing 3. 1 for 3D Benq W7000). My 3D will
have to go througth 3 HDMI splitters. Ouch. Sound out of coax into amp.
