I'm sure glad I found this website! My question is about hooking up my new projector to my current sound system. While going through previous posts and answers here and elsewhere I have seen it is possible but have not learned specifically how to do it so here's what I'd like to do: Watch TV and Blu Rays the way I normally do and when needed watch Blu Rays through the projector and hear the sound through my system.

Blu Ray - Panasonic DMP BD35 - (HDMI 1 on receiver)
HP Desktop - (HDMI 2 on receiver)
AT&T Satellite - HD Cisco Box (HDMI 3 on receiver)
Projector - Epson EX5200 - Has HDMI
Receiver- Yamaha RX-V665 - Has 4 HDMI Inputs and One Out that right now is going to the TV
TV - Samsung HL-T5687SA

I'm not at all technical but if you tell me which HDMI cable goes where so I can see the Blu Ray image on my projector screen and hear the sound through my system I would really appreciate it!

Seems like you just need to split the HDMI output from the receiver to both your TV and the projector.

I've not tried one of these, but this should work:

Pick up a couple of HDMI cables if you need them while on the Monoprice website as well.

HDMI out of your receiver, to the splitter, then on to your TV and projector.

Everything else seems accurate - just leave your TV on HDMI input and turn your receiver on to run things.

This makes total sense now, thanks for the reply and that fantastic recommendation for Monoprice!
