If you have the open ports, I'd suggest going from the player via HDMI to the receiver. That way the signal can just pass through rather than relying on ARC for the audio.
After a few months I finally bought my first 3d film. Put in the disc and it does not recognize the 3d format. My receiver does not have 3d capability so I need a work around. Was thinking of connecting BR HDMI directly to TV, then digital out to Receiver. Is this a good way?
My TV is the PN60E7000FFXZA, doe my model pass 5.1 from digital out when BR player is connected to TV via HDMI?
