Connecting an HDMI-compatible device
Connecting this unit to a TV via HDMI connections
When a TV is connected to the HDMI ZONE4 OUT connector, you can play back a video or audio from the
device connected to the HDMI 1 – 6 IN connector in ZONE4 (vpage111).
Cables used for connections
Audio and video cable (sold separately)
•This interface allows transfer of digital video signals and digital audio signals over a single HDMI cable.
•Video signals are not output if the input video signals do not match the monitor’s resolution. In this case,
switch the Blu-ray Disc/DVD player’s resolution to a resolution with which the monitor is compatible.
•When this unit and monitor are connected with an HDMI cable, if the monitor is not compatible with
HDMI audio signal playback, only the video signals are output to the monitor. Make audio connections
(vpage16 “Connecting a TV”).
•The HDMI 7 / MHL connector on the front panel does not support the HDMI ZONE4 function.
•The audio signal from the HDMI output connector (sampling frequency, number of channels, etc.) may be
limited by the HDMI audio speciﬁcations of the connected device regarding permissible inputs.
•When connecting a TV that does not support the ARC function, an audio cable connection is
required in addition to the HDMI cable. In this case, refer to “Connecting a TV” (vpage16) for
the connection method.
For the ARC function, see “About ARC (Audio Return Channel) function” (vpage10).
Connecting to a device equipped with a DVI-D connector
The DVI-D (Digital Visual Interface) method is also used for video transmission via digital signals. This is
developed mainly for computers, and some AV devices such as projectors are equipped with this interface.
To output HDMI video signals to a DVI-D video input compatible device, use an HDMI/DVI conversion
cable, which converts HDMI video signals to DVI signals.
The DVI-D connector can transmit high quality digital signals, but the copy guard and other issues may
hinder normal operations for some device combinations.
•No sound is output when connected to a device equipped with a DVI-D connector. Make audio
connections as described in “Connecting a TV” (vpage16).
•Signals cannot be output to DVI-D devices that do not support HDCP.
•Depending on the combination of devices, the video signals may not be output.
Settings required when using a TV that supports the ARC function
When using a TV that supports the ARC function, make the following settings.
•Set “HDMI Control” (vpage130) to “On”.
•Set “Control Monitor” (vpage130) to match the number of the HDMI MONITOR connector connected
to the TV that supports the ARC function.
If the TV that supports the ARC function is connected to both HDMI MONITOR 1 and HDMI MONITOR 2
connectors, you cannot use ARC function at the same time.
