Customer Question
I have a denon avr...
I have a denon avr 1908 receiver. I have a playstation hdmi cable going to the "port" closest to the side of the receiver. Another hdmi cable going to the port closest to the middle of the reciver and going to the tv. That leaves one port empty between the two connected ports ( just trying to clarify what i've done) I would like to hook up my stand alone blu ray player to the receiver ( in addition to my already working play station) Can this be done ( using, i assume, another hdmi cable) ? thx

Right now you mean that you are using the HDMI input 1 (dvd/hdp) for the playstation and want to use HDMI 2 ( TV/CBL ) for the blueray ?

If so then I can see no problem providing everything works with the playstation connection , I mean that it will be the same with the blueray , simply switch your denon to the TV/CBL input when you want to watch the blueray

And yes you will need a HDMI cable for that connection

That didn't help at all. My tv and playstation are synched with hdmi1. Where do i attach the hdmi cable from my blu ray player. At present, my hdmi 2 outlet on the tv is empty.
Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

You said n your opening post that you had an empty HDMI input on your denon , whats stopping you from using it ???

You never mentioned the tv or its hdmi 2 input

What are we talking about here , do you want to feed your blueray (like it should ) through the denon or tv ???

What happens when you try to select that HDMI 2 input ?

Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

On the display it should say TV/CBL when you select it by the way unless that hdmi 2 has been re-assigned to another input

Jack- here are my present aonnections. From middle port ont the receiver to hdmi1 outlet of my tv. From playstation to the closest port to the edge of my receiver. This gives me full surround sound with games/ movies on my playstaion, with tv input selected for hdmi 1. Now i want to connect my blu ray player to the receiver in order to get full surround sound on it also. Where do i connect the cable from my blu ray to the receiver to achieve this and what button do i push on my remote to switch back and forth from blu ray to the playstation. Does this also entail another connection to the tv- hdmi 2 or can both players be jsynched with my presently connected hdmi1 cable?

Working now-thanks
Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago
