i'm looking into my first blu-ray player and from what i've read i'd have to use an HDMI cable to watch upscaled dvds with it, which may be a problem...


my tv has no analog audio out. i run my audio into a stereo system instead of using tv speakers, which i've done by splitting the audio and video plugs of component cables to go to the tv and stereo separately. obviously i can't do the same with HDMI, and since my tv has no usable audio out, once that audio reaches the tv it's there to stay.


the blu-ray player itself should still have analog audio outputs, so i can still connect to my stereo using those while using the HDMI to connect the video to the tv. the question is, if i have the tv connected by HDMI will a signal still be output through the analog out on the player? or do most players only output in either a digital or analog signal at one time?


i assume both outputs on the player will work at once, i just don't want to find out the hard way after spending on a blu ray player that it doesn't.

I know that both OPPO models do this but I haven't kept up on other brands.


I would have thought this would be a common feature, but people are always asking about it, so it must be a problem with some players.

I've never heard of a player that can't be configured to provide video from one output and audio from a different one. I know personally that this is true of Sony players, Oppo players, and the PS3.

Hi everybody,


Does anyone know some players that can ouput HD audio (i.e. Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio) over HDMI and send simultaneously DTS or DD over the Digitat out?


Thanks,

Germain

I think that is pretty common these days. I know the OPPOs do but I have not kept up with the other models.
