I am looking at a panasonic s52s dvd player that up converts through this HDMI port. I understand that it carries audio and video. Is it possible for this cable to just carry the video signal? I do not understand how it can be plugged into the tv as well as the surround sound receiver at the same time if it is an all in one design. Can someone please clarify.

HDMI from your signal.
To the HDMI in on your receiver (you will get sound this way) then HDMI out to the  HDMI in on your TV (you will get picture this way, and also sound through the TV speakers if you so wished).)

Buy your HDMI cables from a cheap source such as www.monoprice.com.  There is no need to spend more than just a few bucks on cables.

My receiver does not have a hdmi input. The television does though. I was hoping to get the surround sound from the tos link fiber optic cable. Can this be done and to plug the hdmi cable directly into the television?

Your TV may or may not have audio on the HDMI cable.  Mine does not, but it does have L & R audio connectors on the Port 4 setup (which is the HDMI port).

If your receiver has audio inputs for 5.1 Dolby, then run the audio from your DVD player into that, and the HDMI to the TV.  Your A/V receiver will have better audio circuitry (most likely) than the TV anyway.

I do exactly what you are intending to do, and it works just fine.

Let me know how you like it...I was considering getting one myself.

Yes.  Take the digital audio signal to your A/V receiver via optic or coax cable. Should work fine. You can either leave the speakers on your television up or turn them down when you are playing surround audio sources.

Bought the S52S from Panasonic last night at Circuit City. Open box demo never used for 49.00

Brought it home and it played flawlessly. I threw everything at it. Audio CD's, DVD's and DVD +R -R  standard discs as well as Dual Layer +R and -R discs. All played without problem.

Ordered the HDMI cable on Ebay last night. 15 foot cable for 4.99

I'll let you know how it does on the upconvert when I get the cable.

Circuit City sells the HDMI cable for 99.00 Big price difference from the 4.99 I spent on Ebay.

OK here it is.... The cable is in I am watching DVD's at 720 Progressive setting. The picture is awesome. I could not tell the difference between 1080i and the 720P so I left it at the 720 setting. Great DVD player and it plays every type of disc I have put in it. Highly recommend.

Bit off topic but if you're sick and tired of region coding/unskippable trailers & warnings/forced subs etc I recommend flashing your player with a hacked firmware. I've tried it on a S42 and S52 and both worked great. Another nice feature is the possibility to  remove your tv's overscan.

I don't see the point of hacking the player. It work's fine the way it is. For region coding, I can only buy R1 here in the US so any other region for me is useless. As for no skipable trailers. There are only a few discs i have that are like that and it does not bother me at all. I actually enjoy the trailers. It's just like being in the movies and actually prompts my next DVD to view. I rip trailers from DVD's and make compilation discs. I run them before I watch a movie when waiting for everyone to settle in. Thanks for the link though. It's good to know that there is work arounds if you want them. All in all this is a great player and I am hoping it lasts for a few years to come.

On a different posting I have... The construction has started on the home theater. Will have a 120" wide screen 1:85.1 aspect ratio. Will post progress in the other thread.

You sound like my wife!  She gets so mad when I start the previews before she gets in the room, or worse yet, skip them altogether!

That, my friend, is an EXCELLENT idea!  What tools do you use?

I use the current version of DVDFab, It allows you to rip what you want from multiple discs and then burn it to one. Only the latest version has been able to do this.

OR, you can use DVD Decrypter to write out the .VOB files to disk, and then any competent video editor should be able to assemble them into a burnable format.

I use Decrypter to rip the original (you can do it by file, or the whole disc), and Arcsoft's Showbiz 2 to edit and author the final disc.
