I bought a Blu-Ray player and I screwed up (Help!)

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
UPDATE: I am set to upgrade my DAC to include a digital coaxial input, which would connect directly to the blu-ray player. smile.gif


So after hearing that I should be able to view blu-ray disc on my computer monitor, I got myself the Sony BDPS1700B player, however it never occurred to me that I would end up with not having audio. :O

So what do I do now? I can view blu-ray movies till I am falling over, but I only get audio through the tiny monitor speakers, which is wholly inadequate.

Here are the connectors on my stuff:

Eizo FS2735 monitor:
usb port 1
usb port 2
hdmi 1
hdmi 2
display port (this is used for my computer)

Blu-ray player:
usb port (only for reading video/movie files, can't use this for headphones)
hdmi port (goes to any of my hdmi ports on my monitor)
digital out coaxial (audio apparently)

I sort of expected this stuff to heh somehow work with my computer, or, at least my headphones. Ideally, I would be able to use the usb connection, to feed my studio monitors which is fed by an external DAC with an usb input (connects to the computer).

Below is an image of the backside of the blu-ray player. The power cable goes into the socket on the left:


If I could allow myself to fantasize, I imagine there could be a "digital out coaxial --> USB" which could be plugged into my external DAC. But, could that even be possible?

It looks like you are need to either strip the audio out of the HDMI signal first or use the digital output on the Blu-Ray player to fed your audio system.  So if all you have is USB headphones and a USB DAC with no option for other inputs on the DAC, then you would be out of luck on those.

 

It looks like that monitor has audio output via a 1/8" jack.  I'm not sure, but sometimes the HDMI audio wil get output over that audio output connector that you can send to your sound system.

 

What exactly does your whole sound system include?

To add something else: It looks like MAYBE there are two 3.5 jacks on the back of the monitor.

Don't yet know if I had an old headset lying around to test with.


My computer:
Feeds my A-DAC dac, and/or my usb headset (Logitech H530)
My computer also connects to my monitor with an usb cable, for the usb hub on my monitor (two usb ports).

My DAC:
A-DAC (usb input, XLR output, some kind of 2x RCA as output as well)

My studio speakers:
Yamaha HS-80M (having XLR in, and jack in)

I am willing to get some other blu-ray player, but I need figure out how to get to use my speakers or at least my usb headset when watching blu-ray movies.

Get an av reciever? Plug the player into the reciever which powers the speakers, then plug the reciever into the monitor. That's what I would do, although I already have the reciever.

To add more info:

The mobo on my computer (Asus Maximus IV Extreme P67) has the following audio ports:
SPDIF Out
six plugs (RCA?) for a range of speaker setups

Could I maybe feed "digital out coaxial" from the blu-ray player to the computer? Or is the SPDIF connector "out" only? So many questions. :|

If you have a TV with an audio out you can use that (sounds like you don't but just in case), that's how I do my audio because of what I had laying around when I put it all together. Def not ideal but it will work.

Just use the double ended red/white audio cables and plug them into most stereos

An AV receiver would obviously be better than the TV tho if you had it. I'm about to switch over to one myself...Never really had a problem with my current set up, speakers are ancient and were cheap when I was 13

edit - as to feeding an input, as a laymen the most obvious thing to do would just use some software to treat the feed like a mic? Not informed enough to help you there

@xxicrimsonixx

Do you mean, using a receiver to sort of pass through the HDMI, to the monitor?
post #9 of 34
Like one you would have for a home theater

One that routs all your inputs into your speakers, and routs the video to your TV

In this case your speakers and your monitor

Yes, like a home theatre receiver. That would definitely work. You would also be able to take the green from your motherboard, and convert it to RCA to connect to the receiver, so your computer audio also comes out of receiver + speakers.

The inputs on your motherboard are output, except for the blue one, which is line in. They are 3.5mm, not RCA jacks.
