  1. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    So I have 3 TVs on one wall essentially for football and March madness. I would like to be able to switch the main audio from my 5.1 system to the most important game going on and I just cannot figure out how to do this. I cannot quite find this situation in the forums either.... Please help
  2. General Home Theater & Media/Game Rooms
    I'm trying to help my father out with his home theater. He has a 1080p TV, a roku ultra (4k HDR), and a Pioneer Elite Sc-25 (non 4K HDR pass through). I finally convinced him to get a projector also with a motorized screen that'll drop down in front of his TV (so he can do a large theater or...
  3. Video Processors
    What kind of priority-input HDMI switches are folks recommending these days? I've been fairly out-of-the-loop over the past 5yrs, and am not sure where to start. Reason for asking: I've had a DVDO Edge in my rack for probably a decade. For the past several years it's effectively been doing...
  4. Dedicated Theater Design & Construction
    Hello everyone. I'm embarking on a home renovation (2 bed apt) and want to stick all my AV equipment in a closet. The shortest HDMI cable I could use would be about 35 feet and I'm wondering which route will give me the least headaches. I have a cable box, a PS4, and an Apple TV. So nothing...

  6. Nintendo
    Hi all, I just got my son a Nintendo switch and we plugged the docking into the Denon AVR's Game hdmi port. When we switch the AVR to game, it doesn't show up on the TV. if we plug the docking directing into the hdmi port of the TV, everything works. Anyone know why it doesn't work when...
  7. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Hi everyone! I have Onkyo 3010 at the moment, which far exceeds my 7.1 installation. This heavy beast was bought because of its superior sound quality, so I do not use any features of it rather then just switching between connected sources and listening to the sound it provides. At the moment...
  8. Remote Control Area
    I have a Harmony Elite with multiple activities set up, but it's never quite worked right and the sticking point is always 1 item: the HDMI source. I had a Zettaguard 4x1 HDMI switch from Amazon that was a good deal and a popular one, but the Harmony remote didn't have specs for it. I taught it...
  9. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Hello, I have a Yamaha RX-V863 receiver. One of the HDMI ports stopped working. I can't find a local place to fix it. I was wondering if I could use a switch or splitter and if I do will I lose video and sound quality? If I can is there any reasonable priced models on the market? Thank you
  10. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    Hello, I am trying to figure out the best way to connect my SVS PB-2000 to two sources of audio, my computer and a Denon AVR-S720W. I also might purchase another PB-2000 for a dual setup because I love bass and have a few dead spots in my living room. But that's besides the point. I believe I...
  11. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I have an Extron audio switch that I use for connecting inputs to outputs in my Whole Home Audio setup. One of the downsides of the way I have it set up is that I need an amplifier for every set of speakers (zone) that I want to be able to play to. Source A -- -- Amp X -- Speaker X...

    For sale - Used but in good & working condition: Octava HD-41 ARC 4x1 HDMI Switch w/ optical out. This is the 1080p version - does not support 4K video. I have been using this to send DD 5.1 audio from components to my Sonos Playbar & Play:1s. Works great but need something that supports 4K...
  13. Theater Room Items & Accessories
    Hi I'm new to the forum and fairly new to AV so I'll try to be as concise as I can. I have a Samsung KS9500; rather than ports on the TV itself it comes with a mini "One Connect" box - basically only has 3 usable ports for non-audio devices. I want to use an HDMI splitter/switch to load...

    Hi. I have live in a two bedroom condo and would like to be able to listen to music in up to 3 out of 4 rooms at the same time (but usually only 2). I am on the top floor, so I have attic access to all the rooms. The condo is about 1,000 square feet (92 m2). The living room/dining area/kitchen...

    I'm building a game room where there are four gaming stations each with an HDTV, as well as a large central presentation HDTV. Each station are to have four to six machines connected to their respective HDTV with some kind of HDMI switch. None of the stations can be connected to each other with...

  17. Speakers
    Hi, So I have an interesting setup in that my living room contains a TV and a projector but the projector is perpendicular to the TV. For that reason if I view the projector the sound is the wrong way round (front left is front right, front right is rear right and so on). I'm using 4x Tannoy...

    I have an Octava 4 x 1 HDMI Switch with Optical Toslink Routing. It's an older unit, the current unit has ARC support, as well. http://www.octavainc.com/HDMI%20switch%204port_toslink.htm I need, basically, this unit but with more inputs (I'm full). Does anyone know of a combined TOSLINK, HDMI...
  19. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    A fairly straightforward electronics question: I'd like to use a z-wave home automation switch to power on/off my AVR and external amp(switch sits between wall outlet and AVR). Is this poor practice in general? Or is there no sort of shutdown sequence and cutting power to the device will...

    I have two line-level devices that have variable volume control I would like to connect to an amplifier. That amplifier has one input and is always on (a professional Crown CDi1000). I am looking for an automatic switch that can choose the device that has voltage coming through the RCA inputs...
