I have the following and wonder if it would be better to set up inputs through the TV or the receiver. Right now its through the receiver but the Oppo DVD does not seem to work.


Samsung LED/LCD UN40C6300SF

Pioneer Elite VSX-72TXV

Oppo DVD DV-980H

Sony PS3

Nintendo Wii

Scientific Atlanta Cable Box 4250HD


Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Receiver - Dolby HD and TruHD can not be passed over optical. So you need HDMI, which would mean HDMI from the source to the receiver and then out to the TV.


What I have done in both of my setups is that I run a component wire from the cable Box to the TV and a HDMI from the cable box to the receiver.


This allows me to run the Cable signal through the receiver if I want to, but also if I just want to watch the news or put on a game without sound as background, I can without having to power up the entire system.
