Question How Do I Connect My Home Theater Reciever To Blu Ray Without HDMI

Hi Everyone,

I recently purchased a new home theatre system for my living room and I'm now trying to find a way to use my old system elsewhere in the house.

My old system is a Sony HCD-C900 5.1, and I'm trying to use it with my Sony blu-ray player.

The issue I'm running into is that I do not know IF or HOW I can connect the system's receiver to the blu ray player, being that the receiver does not have an HDMI input.

Is there a way I can still use this home theater system? Any help or suggestions would be most appreciated.

Default No HDMI

Use component cables.

Newer Blu-ray players don't have component outputs any more. (Analog sunset.) If that's the case, the OP would need to look to buy an older player for use with his non-HDMI sound system.

Or, run HDMI to the TV for video and optical or coax to the receiver for audio.

you can also find HDMI to component converters out there. they are technically illegal to sell because they break HDCP, but they are easy to find online from online retailers. You'll probably find one for around $40.

Interesting. All 3 of my Blu-ray players have component outputs. I suppose that I should check out the players made in the past year in order to update myself. .
