Hi,


This my first post on this forum and wanted to ask a couple of questions from a novice.


What is the best way to connect the following setup:


- HTPC: Motherboard can pass HD Video and HD Audio through HMDI.


- Receiver: With HDMI switching


- HD Plasma TV.



Is the best way: HTPC>>>(HDMI)>>>RECEIVER>>>(HDMI)>>>PLASMA ? Am I able to pass the HD Video from my HTPC via the Receiver to my Plasma ? Or must this is a direct link ?



Second question, is the HD Audio decoded at the HTPC, at the Receiver or can it be either assuming the above connection ? The reason why I ask is because I can save a few bucks by not having to buy a HD Audio receiver if the HTPC can already decode the audio and simply send it to the receiver for amplification.


Many thansk in advance.

That is the best way if you want 5.1 (or 7.1) from your sound system while watching movies.
