I have a nice Denon receiver, but it does not have HDMI input. Do you suppose it would be possible to hook this Sony blu ray HDMI 1.3 output directly to my Sharp TV's HDMI 1.3 input and then connect the Sony player's audio to my receiver in order to use it's speakers instead of the TV's or am I out of luck ?

I think you can do your suggested connections.

But, I already made best: I connected the player's HDMI out DIRECT on Samsung and Sony LCD's HDMI in; then I connected the optical out from the player into the optical in of Yamaha(no HDMI out) and Onkyo receivers. Both functionned perfect!!! So,I saw the images via HDMI connection and listen the DD and DTS sound by receivers speakers. All worked fine, fine.

Try and enjoy!

had this now for 18 months, only shown about 20 films, won't work now, comes up with 'no disc' message with any kind of disc. Sony say it's out of warranty will charge for repair, tried resetting, still won't work, cost £399, bit dear for only 20 odd films.

Had my BDP S500 for a year now. Got all firmware upgrades ok, but now wont play any BDs or Audio. Contacted Sony, were not interested at all. What is my next move?
