JChin...Thanks for the replies, but you have completely misunderstood my dilemma.
The SAT box is connected to the AVR via HDMI cable.
AVR is connected to TV via HDMI.
CD/DVD player is connected to the AVR via HDMI.
If I want to listen to a CD, I get no picture on the TV, just the Denon logo from the player....usually no problem. However, SOMETIME, I like to watch something on TV with no volume (as in a race or football game) & also listen to a CD.
Currently to accomplish this, I have a single RCA cable going from the SAT box to the TV, passing only video, bypassing the AVR, but the picture is terrible. I would like to listen to a CD while watching a HD signal on the TV.
As I stated, my option, as I see it, is to remove the HDMI from the CD/DVD to AVR and replace it with a RCA paired cable. This way, I can watch TV with an HD picture & still listen to music. Again, as stated previously, I doubt I can hear the difference of a CD connected via RCA or HDMI, and the monitor will have an HD picture
IDEALLY, I would like to figure a way to listen to the CD, connected to the AVR via HDMI & also watch TV, via HDMI connection between the AVR & TV. However, I think this is impossible.
