    Apple store guy today told me to buy a digital optical audio cable to connect Apple TV into my receiver. This, he said, would bypass the HDMI and allow me to get sound. No dice! The cable, even with the adapter piece, is too thin to fit into any of the digital jacks on the receiver. What should I do? Surely, I'm not the only one trying to hang on to an otherwise perfectly fine receiver. Last thing I want to do is drop $550 on a new HDMI compatible Denon receiver. Thanks in advance,
