I recently purchased the Sony STRDG920 receiver because of the many inputs it has. Now that I'm in the process of getting everything hooked up and getting familiar with the unit, I'm finding it may not offer enough inputs.


As and example, when I look at the back of the unit there are HDMI inputs and composite inputs for Sat, Blu ray, DVD, and Video 1. If I'm using the HDMI input on any of these, does this mean that the composite cannot be used for something else. Same goes for component. My dvd player is hooked into the component 1, does this make the composite dvd input unavailable?


Here's my set-up...

Directv Sat 1 - HDMI Sat In
Directv Sat 2 - HDMI Video 1 In
PS3 - HDMI BD In
DVD Player - Component 1 In \\ Optical 1 In
Wii - Component 2 In \\ Not sure where the audio connects for this (part 2 of question)
CD Changer - Optical Sat In
VCR (I know, it's a freaking VCR, and this is the one that seems to be screwing me up) I tried using composite Video 1, but I'm using the video 1 HDMI for the 2nd sat receiver???


Am I even going at this the right way? Any help/suggestions would be great.


And where do I hook in the audio cables for the Wii / Component 2?


Thanks a ton,

Wilmo

Generally it can be used, but only one component on the assignment can be used at a time. You may not get transcoding off all your sources to HDMI, and have to use other video output to achieve it, but it varies by AVR.

Looks to me that the component video inputs are assignable. Why not connect your Wii audio to the MD/Tape In and assign component video 2 to that?


You could use the front panel video 2 inputs for your VCR.

That's what I did, check out my connections link below in my signature for details. I connected a Wii and a karaoke player that way.

My Xbox 360 only has component for video, no HDMI, I understand how to connect the video, just use a component connection on the receiver, but for my optical sound from the 360, can you assign the 2 optical ports to anything you want so I can get digital sound from my 360? Thanks
