Below is my setup:

Sony 32 inch EX650 Series BRAVIA Full HD with Edge LEDKDL-32EX650 (Should supports ARC)

Yamaha RX-V373 (HTR-3065)

Sony Blu-Ray Player (BDP-S490)

Set-top box
1. Set-top box                             >> connects to HDMI 1 (IN) in Receiver
2. Sony Blu-Ray Player (BDP-S490) >> connects to HDMI 2 (IN) in Receiver
3. HDMI OUT from Receiver           >> connects to TV

In addition, I have the below setup if I want to watch TV without receiver.

1. Component cable connected from Set-top box to TV directly along with the Audio cable (Planning to replace it with Optical for Audio) which works perfectlty without receiver.

Now the issue is whenever, I am switching on Receiver and Sony Blu-Ray player and want to listen music/movie form the blu-ray the audio is not coming from Receiver always and it is from TV speaker instead.

Sometimes it is working meaning the audio comes out from Receiver. Sometimes not working and all the audio coming from TV and I need to manually change the Sound output from "TV Speaker" to "Audio System" in the TV.

Any setup issue? Pls advise. Also do we need to connect BD/DVD in the first HDMI of receiver? Because I have connected in HDMI 2 (should not be an issue...I believe)

I have the RX-V371. TV for us is OTA only, so........

Antenna is connected to the Cable/Ant input of the tv.

BD player is connected to the receiver to HDMI 1.

AppleTV2 is connected to the receiver to HDMI 2.

HDMI out on the receiver to the HDMI input 1 on the tv.

Optical cable out from the tv to the optical Input of the receiver.

TV speakers are always turned off. When we watch tv, the internal ATSC tuner is used and discrete 5.1 audio is passed to the receiver.

BD player and ATV2 always have their audio passed thru the receiver and only video is passed on to the tv.

Input selection is achieved via a Harmony 880 remote so a single button selects the correct inputs for tv, BD player, ATV2, or radio, which results in all audio, regardless of source, being played thru the receiver.

The tv is not ARC capable so we don't even bother with that. Even if the tv was, I probably wouldn't use it because there's too many issues with ARC, imo.
