I am looking to upgrade my Receiver, and was pretty set on a HDMI 1.4 receiver. However, a few of the Best Buys in my area have the Pioneer Elite SC25 and Denon 3310 for really good prices. I was told the higher end 3d Blu-Ray players have 2 HDMI, so I can run one to the 1.3 Receiver and the other to the TV. The only other potential draw back is 3d from Direct TV. Can I run HDMI to the TV, and optical to the Receiver to get the Digital Audio? I know in the past, plugging into the HDMI cables locks down all other outputs in some devices for piracy issues. Does Direct TV HD receivers do this?
