Samsung BD-D8200, Would this work.


Well-known Member
Im moving soon and have decided to ditch Sky so im in the process of choosing an Freeview+HD box. The Samsung BD8200 has caught my eye which is a twin tuner HD PVR and Blu-Ray player and from what I gather as addressed all the faults that were common in its predecessor the C8200.

Now my problem is this I would like to hook up the machine via HDMI to my Marantz Amp For lossless Audio for blu-ray but dont want the amp on all the time just to watch Freeview.

Could I use the only HDMI out port and connect to the amp for Blu-Ray playback and use the component out to connect to the tv for Freeview, Would this work or would I end up running into problems, also would Freeview HD look a bit crappy through component?.
