    Hello

    I have ordered a CA Azur 540R V2 receiver but after a couple of questions to CA I believe the amp is not suitable for my needs.

    I have the following to connect

    Optical
    HD-DVD
    PS3
    SkyHD

    Coax/analogue and component for video
    DVD
    DVD recorder

    I thought it had 5 digital inputs but I understand it only has 3, either coax or optical.
    So I thought to change coax to analogue. CA have told me I will still have to swap between optical and coax so am at a loss why as I dropped using coax:confused:. Also I can only assign 1 component input.

    This is what I would like to connect

    Optical only (the three optical devices are HDMI. I have a switch so not an issue. )
    HD-DVD
    PS3
    SkyHD

    Coax or analogue and component for video
    DVD
    DVD recorder

    Is this setup possible with version 3?

    I have looked at the manual but do not trust my judgement as I read the V2 manual and between that and my ignorance in these matters I appear to have got it wrong.

    CA have told me what I can’t do but have not made any suggestions of other products of theirs which can do it which leads me to think they can’t.


    Thanks for any help

    You could connect the HD-DVD via optical to the DVD input and the DVD player via coax to the DVD input. I tried it here with 540rv2 and it seems if both devices are on the one connected with coax takes priority. So if you wanted to use the HD you would just have to make sure the dvd player was off.
