Hey guys, sorry if this is in the wrong section or covered already - I couldn't find a direct answer to my specific answers so hopefully you can help out! :)
So, my 3D Blu Ray player arrived the other day, and I'm trying to get it hooked up to take advantage of the 3D (obviously), but as well as the TrueHD/DTS-MA soundtracks of normal BluRay.
My set up is;
50" 3D Samsung plasma (50PSC7000)
Samsung 3D BluRay (BD-C6900)
Yamaha AV receiver RX-V663.
(5.1 set up at the moment, but adding to 7.1)
A few questions;
1 - Can you only get 3D images using HDMI 1.4 Cables?
2 - Since the receiver can only passthrough HDMI 1.3, is the best set up;
BD -> TV (via) HDMI
BD -> AV RECEIVER (via) 7.1 Analog Direct Output
and, if so, can I achieve Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD MA through Analog outputs?
3 - If I bought another ($150) HDMI 1.4 cable, and connect it from AV -> TV, will the cables somehow compensate and pass the 3D video though, thus only needing those two cables?
But, I guess my main question is
Can you achieve Dolby TrueHD and/or DTS-HD MA through direct analog outputs??
