How to Hookup HDTV, Blu-ray Player, HD satellite TV box, DVD Recorder and Audio Video Receiver with HDMI Switch

This connection involves a HDTV, DVD recorder, AVR, Bluray and HD satellite box.

Components include:
1. HDTV with 1 HDMI input.
2. HD Satellite Receiver with HDMI, component and composite video outputs.
3. Standard DVD recorder with HDMI upconversion out.
4. An HDMI Switch Box with 4 inputs and 1 output.
5. An Audio Video Receiver with HDMI input and output.
6. Blu-Ray Player.

Because the HDTV has only one HDMI input, a HDMI switch box is used. By using the switch, you can leave the AVR on the same input and just switch sources using the HDMI switch box.

NOTE: Some source components do not output surround sound over HDMI. In this case, use a digital audio cable (optical or coaxial) from the source device to the AVR's digital audio input (optical or coaxial).
