Using a Yamaha loaded with HDMI as well as my TV that is loaded. So which is better in your opinion, to have each component go thru to the TV or have each component hooked directly to the AVR then one HDMI to the TV used as a monitor?


What is better for audio/video? Am I losing anything going one way or another, ?

If the AVR can handle audio and video via HDMI, I would suggest going through the AVR - it simplifies things and you eliminate potential issues going through the TV (namely, forcing outputs into stereo). One exception to this may be with your cable/satellite box, many users report problems with HDMI connections in general, and rely on component video and digital audio to ensure stable operation. Another exception would be if the TV supports 3D, and you have a 3D Blu-ray player, but your receiver cannot pass-through or otherwise handle 3D - in that case you'll need to connect the player straight to the TV.
