So I just purchased an Epson 705HD projector and I'm not really sure how to go about bypassing its crappy internal speakers when playing video games. Is this the solution? -



Will any ol' receiver with these connections output the audio simultaneously through 2 different ports without any trouble?

Thanks

Does the projector have a menu? if so you should run through it, most hdtv's and projectors give you the option to turn on and off the internal speakers. refer to your manual if you have trouble finding it.

So to answer your question - any receiver that passes HDMI video out will also pass sound to speakers. Then as scoob states turn of sound on the projector.


Now some receivers will not pass video so those you would wire


PS3 - directly to Projector

PS3 with audio cables to receiver (enable video out through HDMI and audio through analog in the PS3 setup men)

Then receiver to speakers

It's actually still in the mail on its way here, so I'm just doing a little planning... I would imagine turning the sound off will be pretty simple. Thanks very much for the PS3 audio output settings advice though, that was what I was looking for. Now time for a good "starter" receiver, that projector almost cleaned me out. Any suggestions?

That's how i have my set up...


6.1 Receiver

analog wires

ps3 -> hdmi -> tv (tv on mute in order not to get an echo or double talk...)


I was wondering if my receiver a snoy str-k6800p was processing the sound correctly and to the best of its abilities. I purchased the receiver before hdmi was main stream and was wondering would i need to upgrade my reciever to benefit from the true hd audio on blue ray discs?

Well for both of you - HDMI is the best way to go (Loki you should repost asking for advice on a receiver for XXX dollars and post what speakers you have etc)


To really answer the question about how much of a difference you would perceive that is hard to do. There are other things in the receiver that would come into play. I advice people to go to Best Buy and pick up a receiver that is in their "budget comfort zone". Test it out at home (make sure it is a stock item) and you can return it in 30 days. It gives you the option to test it and realize that it doesn't do anything extra for you / that you love it, but you can find it cheaper elsewhere (likely) / you realize it is not that much more at BB and you are happy to buy it from a store that is close to you so you keep it........

Yes you would need to upgrade to get the lossless sound (Dolby True HD / DTS Master Audio / Multi channel PCM.
