About HDMI

HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) supports both video and audio on a single digital connection for use with DVD players, DTV, set-top boxes, and other AV devices. HDMI was developed to provide the technologies of High Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) as well as Digital Visual Interface (DVI) in one specification. HDCP is used to protect digital content transmitted and received by DVI-compliant displays. HDMI has the cap ability to supp or t standa r d, enhanced, o r high-definition video p lus standa r d to multi-channel su rr ound-sound audio. HDMI featu r es include uncom pressed digital video, a bandwidth of up to 2.2 gigabytes p e r second (with HDTV signals), one connector (instead of seve r al cables and connector s), and communication between the AV sour ce and AV devices such as DTVs. This receiver is also com p atible with the Dee p Color and x.v.Color featur e (x.v.Color is t radema r ks of Sony Corpo r ation). • HDMI, the HDMI logo and High-Definition Multimedia Interface are trademarks or registered trademarks of HDMI Licensing, LLC.

3 Connect the composite video output and

the stereo analog audio outputs 1 on your BD/ DVD player to the BD/DVD inputs on this receiver. Use a standa r d RCA video cable 2 and a ste r eo RCA p hono cable fo r the connection.

• If your BD/DVD player has multichannel analog outputs, see Connecting the multichannel analog outputs below for how to connect it.

4 Connect the analog audio outputs from

your TV to the TV/SAT inputs on this receiver. This will allow you to p lay the sound f r om the TV’s built-in tune r . Use a ste r eo RCA p hono cable to do this.

• If your TV has a built-in digital decoder, you can also connect an optical digital audio output from your TV to the DIGITAL OPTICAL IN 1 (CD-R/TAPE) input on this receiver. Use an optical cable for the connection. 3

Connecting the multichannel analog outputs

For DVD Audio and SACD playback, your BD/DVD player may have 5.1 channel analog outputs. In this case, you can connect them to the multi-channel analog out puts to the multi-channal inp uts of this r eceive r as shown below. 4
