Default Re: only 1 HDMI slot

Why not just get a cheap HDMI switcher?

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?
Sure, that should work fine. Or, if you want to use the optical on your receiver, get a converter like this:
We're all in it together.
