Video quality much worse after hooking up denon x4200w
I'm hoping you can help me. I have been using an older H/K amp (pre HDMI days) for 13 years. It bascially failed so I replaced it with a denon x4200w. I have a panasonic 55st60 plasma and a blu ray player (2014). My previous set up I hooked the blu ray to the TV via HDMI and an optical from the blu ray to receiver for surrond. Likewise for my cable box.
Now, everything is HDMi into the reciver and an HDMI out from receiver to TV.
However, watching blu rays that were crystal clear in the old set up (not passing through a receiver) are now really grainy and not good. This is the same when watching my cable box. The video is all around worse when everything is plugged into the receiver. Is that because the Denon is doing something to the signal?
Can I do an HDMI passthrough on the blu ray and cable box so the receiver doesn't do anything to the picture, but does decode the audio? I'm still learning all this since the last time I even thought about any of this was 2003 lol
