Default Re: only 1 HDMI slot

Also with the DVD - HDMI is supposed to carry both audio & Video - so how do i hook the audio to my home theater? (Yamaha HTR 5750) - the pionoeer dvd does not have an optical connection - it has a digital. The Yamaha only digital connection if for the CD - so I guess I can hook the dvd in there?

Please help thanks.
Hi Cheif. Welcome to NVN

Yes, the sound will be sent down the HDMI cable, but I think it's sterio only (not 100% on that though). As for the DVD audio, you'll just have to try it. If it's in 'CD mode' it might only pick up two channels.
