    How olds the AVR? Id check about 3D passthrough first, you need a HDMI 1.4 spec AVR for 3D, it should say in your manual. What model AIR/amp do you have?


    Edit: sorry still half asleep, no the 1610 won't pass 3D, I have a 1910 and connect my 3D player direct to my TV and use optical to the AVR. If you have two HDMI outputs(if possible with PC now) you can use one for audio to the Dennon and the other to the TV for the picture.

    thanks for help.
    i take it the amp will still send picture through but not 3d??so in essence it will still work as my existing setup?but to watch 3d i need a direct input to tv (audio via optical to amp)
    as regards to the tv upgrade part,will the lg be alot better all round compared to my toshiba?
    thanks again

    Yes hence the name AVR Audio Visual Receiver. What many do is buy a player with two HDMI outs as I have said, otherwise yes just HDMI to the set and optical out to the receiver.

    Sorry not owned either of those sets so can't help there, best to look for reviews, owners threads and read the manufacturers own sites to see what features the sets have, then if you can, go see the sets.
