Sorry, I meant to put that in there. Yes, it works directly to the projector.
I realize it doesn't make a difference audio wise, but I need to connect my HTPC via HDMI. That is why I use the receiver to switch HDMI sources.
The only thing I have yet to try is a HDMI cable other than the one that came with the 360.
Does anybody know if the 2808CI passes the HDMI signal, or does it buffer it (a HDMI switch vs HDMI repeater)?
In the end, I think I'm going to keep it hooked up via component. Like I said before, the only problem with this is the fact that Netflix will not stream HD content without HDCP. As a result, HD streamed content will be output at 480p via the component. This is fine, I will use my HTPC to stream netflix instead. Unfortunately, the HD streaming is not available via a PC, at least that's what I have heard.
