You will have to run an optical digital audio cable from the DVD player to the receiver. John
I have an Oppo DVD player with HDMI output, a Sony receiver with HDMI pass-through, and a Panasonic plasma with the option to add an HDMI input. How does the sound get processed? HDMI passes sound and video. I definitely don't want the sound getting passed to the TV. If I have digital optical and HDMI connected to the receiver from the DVD will it figure it out?
