Sony KDL-32R410b TV has only two hdmi inputs , one is HDMI MHL other is HDMI ARC.

I have a dvd player with a regular plug HDMI output.I do not own a receiver compatible with the ARC function.

My question is if I can connect my dvd player to ARC TV HDMI socket.In this case it is possible to damage the TV?


Thank you.

Not to worry, the ARC designate is for that function but not exclusively.  It will work fine in either HDMI input.  The ARC is provided by mfgrs to allow one device to control the other through the HDMI interface.  In most applications the ARC is questionable with mixed mfgrs.
