We just picked up a Nextbox 3.0, but the ports are different from our old HD terminal so the way it was configured previously (by a technical guru, not me!) no longer apply. As such I am looking for some help hooking the Nextbox up with my Denon Amplifier, BluRay player and TV.
Right now the Nextbox is connected to the TV through HDMI so the sound is coming through the TVs speakers. I want to use speakers connected to the Amplifier for TV sound (instead of the TV's speakers). The blu ray also needs to be connected to the TV for audio and to the amplifer for sound.
So the devices to be connected together are a Samsung TV, Nextbox, Panasonic Bluray, Denon Amplifier. I have looked for some schematics/tips online with limited success. Can anyone help?
I agree with Smartswines description.. that is all that should be needed.
HDMI will pass through the audio from the box, to the recieiver.. just need to make sure your on the right input.. and it should display it out to the TV.
Now..the nextbox 3 is having HDMI CEC issues.. which sometimes can play around with receivers/TVs and auto changing inputs, etc.. you may have to disable on the receiver, any sorts of features which allow that auto swtiching for everything to work properly.
Ah, ok, so no video.. an older receiver, audio only.
You were using the digital cable, pluged into the coax port on your receiver, and likely the coax out on the older rogers box.
The NB3.. doesnt have a coax out... not alot of NEWER devices do any more.. its more being phased out.
Never fear.. you do have SOME options! it will just require getting a new cable.
You will need to buy a toslink opitical audio cable.
this will go into the OPT1 on your receiver... and the optical audio out, on the back of the NB3
