Ok, so if i get this http://www.ebay.com/itm/HDMI-Audio-Decoder-Converter-Di...

and hook up this http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009LVVTSQ/ref=ox_sc_a... to it,

then run an HDMI to HDMI from Blu ray to one port on the splitter,

then run DVI, from my monitor, to HDMI, second port on splitter,

then run a red/white to aux stereo cable from the box to the stereo

would this provide me with video and audio from my blu ray to my Monitor?

I think it would work but just making sure.

Best solution

You won't know until you try it. On theory - yes, it should work.
You're "risking" $30, so if it was me - I would go with it.

On the other hand - your BluRay player should have coax or optical SPD/IF audio out. Check it out, and either get SPD/IF-to-RCA converter, or upgrade you stereo. Either way, you will skip HDMI splitter part.

From what I remember, it didn't have anything like that for audio I guess. but I know it has AC in (power) and HDMI out to the display in the back and a usb port looking thing in the front, that's all it is from what I have seen, im not at my house at the moment so I cant look at make sure but im pretty sure it doesn't have any audio type of port.
