My 5 year old Yamaha audio receiver doesn't have HDMI but my TH-65PF10UK screen and my sources have HDMI.


my question is, is there any way to use HDMI from my sources for video only while using toslink/optical cable for the audio?


Thanks, Joe

Sure. I do exactly that with my setup for the same reason (no HDMI receiver.)


You might have to disable HDMI audio in one of your sources in the audio menu, depending on if it needs it.

Thanks guys.


So, if I understand correctly, the HDMI connection essentially turns into a DVI connection because the optical takes over the audio. Unless a source has an option to disable HDMI audio.


This is great news, thanks again.
