Simply question that’s stumped me. I have a Sony Bravia TV and a Yamaha receiver but my TV apps audio will not play through my receiver. I have all my components going through my receiver (DirecTV box, Blu-ray and Roku). I’d like to get rid of my Roku and use the TV’s apps. Before I dig into it, I thought I’d ask the masses. Do I need to disconnect everything from my receiver and connect them to the TV HDMI ports and use a digital optical cable to transfer audio to my receiver? If I do this, what will I loose downgrading from HDMI audio to digital optical audio? My surround is a 5.1 for what it’s worth. I have other questions about surround sound systems that I’ll save for later. Thanks in advance and have a great weekend.
