Okay, so I had this receiver up in my bedroom collecting dust not getting used at all since i have a bose lifestyle system in my living room. Well, to make a long story short i'm kinda sick of the bose and want to bring it down to replace the bose. I would appreciate it if someone could help me out as far as connecting everything since its been awhile for me. I would prefer to hook it up by all hdmi but I know theres not many outputs on the yammy.
Here is the following I would like to hook up:
Samsung 65 inch smart tv
and comcast hd dvr
Plus I dont always want to use the surround sound just to watch tv or play a game, so what do you think would be the best way to hookup for these needs. Thanks for any input
Hmmm, this seems pretty basic, so I'm not sure if there's anything else you need, but the receiver has 2 hdmi inputs and 1 hdmi output, so hook the comcast and ps4 to the inputs, and the tv to the output.
As far as the sound goes, when you're using the surround sound, use the tv remote control to turn your tv's volume down, using your receiver's sound.... and vice versa, when you're using your tv's sound, turn your receiver sound down and use your tv's sound... easy as pie
Of course the receiver would need to be on for pass through whether or not you are using the receiver's speakers.... if that matters then you would need to buy an hdmi splitter on monoprice. hope this helps!
