Doing it the way you describe I don't believe will work as this is HD the player probably uses all its resources to apply to the video for the best possible picture...
Have you considered purchasing a HDMI splitter???Running one output to the AVR for audio and the other to the TV for video??? Or just using the HDMI out of the AVR to the TV??? The latter would probably be best and least expensive...
No, the player does
support simultaneous output of HDMI/component video. (See page 15 of the manual.) In this case, it's the audio that's at issue. S/PDIF and multi-channel analog can work simultaneously if only using component. But when trying to use HDMI for only audio
, while using component for video
, the player seems to shut down the component output. My guess is that, in some backwards way, this might have something to do with DRM more than anything else. But as others have suggested, there are alternatives.
First, BSTNFAN, make sure you have HDMI Video OUT on your 606 set to OFF. If it's not, then that would confirm that there's a "handshake" problem in that the A35's connection is looking for an accompanying display to tap into, which in turn would confirm the DRM protocol. If HDMI Video Out is set to OFF, then the receiver won't look for an HDMI-compatible display to talk to, allowing your component video to come through.
