    Hi all. Problem!! I am getting fed up of having to move cables around to watch 3d & get Master Audio together.

    I have a non 3d compatible Sony AV Receiver, PS3 for 3d, Epsom 3d Projector & a Panasonic Viera & soon a Freeview HD box. To watch 3d on the projector I have to go direct from the PS3 to the projector with the audio provided by Optical to the AV Receiver but then as soon as I want to use the PS3 through the TV I have to swap cables. I need a splitter that will allow
    • 3d picture via HDMI direct to projector from ps3 while using HDMI audio through AV receiver for 7.1 MA due to no 3d decoding through AV receiver
    • HDMI from ps3 to AV Receiver to TV
    • HDMI from Freeview box to AV receiver to both TV & projector to provide both audio & video
    I have no idea, so any help is appreciated.
    Thanks

    I would bypass the AV Receiver for Video and just send your audio through to the receiver, from each source

    The add a HDMI matrix 2x2 with 3D Support, though you will have to consider that you cant watch 3D and None 3D at the same time from the PS3.

    This will allow you to connect your sources to either the TV or Projector or both at the same time.

    Your best option is likely to be replace the BD Player with a player offering dual HDMI Out.

    You connect the Main HDMI (carrying 3D video) direct to your Display and the second HDMI (carrying a dummy 2D signal + HD Audio) to the AVR.

    Specialist 'splitters' do exists for 3D + 2D with HD audio but are more cost than a budget dual HDMI Out Player.
