    hi all

    i need some advice in routing video to my new sony KDF-60XBR950.

    i have 
      sony KDF-60XBR950 tv
      denon AVR-4800 receiver
      denon DVD-2800 DVD player
      sa explorer 8300HD cable/HD/dvr box

    i currently route all audio and video to the receiver and send the video via the component monitor outs to the tv.  in other words i video source to the tv. 

    i was looking at tweaking the tv but started reading about tweaking the different video input sources (video_1, video_2 ... etc) for separate
     components (cable, dvd .. etc)

    should i route the video sources directly to separate video inputs in the tv and only audio to the receiver?  

    also have both HD and non HD content coming out of my cable box thru 1 set of component outputs.  i'm not that interested in non HD channels since they are poor quality anyway.  but should i separate those sources to different tv video inputs also?

    thanx, paul

    Welcome to Agoraquest!  Most of us here recommend connecting all video sources to the TV and audo sources to the receiver.  The receiver's video switching capability is a convenience feature.  Due to the fact that it puts additonal components in the video path, its not uncommon for some video degradation to occur.

    But, if you want the audio to be played through the receive, and not the tv, how would you accomplish this using an HDMI cable>



    For example, I have a ps3 with HDMI out.  If I connect this cable directly to my sony xbr4 then the sound is routed to the tv also, when instead, I would like the sound sent to my receiver.

    mptpro,

    Greetings and welcome.

    In order for the sound of your PS3 to be sent to your receiver you would either have to use the HDMI connection from your PS3 to a HDMI input of your TV and then use the TV's audio out (if equipt)  back to your receiver or run the HDMI out from the PS3 to an HDMI input on your receiver (if equipt) and then run an additional HDMI cable from the receivers HDMI out to one of your TV's HDMI inputs.

    Joe

    Thanks Joe,

    I have a Sony Bavia XBR4 tv and am getting one of the Sony ES receivers, so I shold be able to do it both ways you describe.

    What is the general consensus of video quality when connecting via HDMI ps3 --> receiver --> tv?

    P.S. It shocked me what a difference the cable quality made! My first HDMI cable cause "snow" on my tv when connecting my ps3 and running at 1080p. I couldn't figure out what caused it, then I tried a high quality (and expenseive) Monster Cabel and the picture is perfect!

    mptpro,

    You should have no problem in passing the video signal through an ES receiver and then to your TV.

    What model of Sony ES receiver are you considering?

    A high quality HDMI cable can make a huge difference as you have found out. It doesn't have to be an expensive cable like a Mon$ter brand but it is good to hear that the picture is perfect after using a better cable.

    Joe
