In short I connect all sources to the Receiver inputs. Then the output to the HDTV.
I use an optical return link from HDTV to the receiver most of the time since ARC seems to be hit or miss.
Now there are a lot of setup menus at times and I really like the Logitech Harmony Hub to reduce the remote proliferation.
Hi, wondering of someone could shed some light on the best way to connect my new Samsung 8500 with the HDMI port to a Yamaha receiver. Right now I have an HDMI going from the HDMI port that came with the TV to my receiver. Then from the receiver I have an HDMI going to the Dish cable box and then another HDMI going from the receiver to my apple TV. It works but I am also being told that might not be the best way. Many thanks in advance.
