I bought an Sony XBR-70x850B but am currently using a loaner 86" while awaiting delivery of my 70". My AVR is a 7 year old Pioneer Elite VSX-92TXH,
Actually, all audio is send via HDMI2 out from the OPPO to the AVR and processed and output with my set-up. The Dish STB and Apple TV are fed directly to the AVR and pass HDMI video to the OPPO. The HD-DVD player is fed directly to the Oppo and passes audio to the AVR via HDMI OUT2. Blu-rays and other content from the Oppo also go to the AVR as well as ARC from the TV.
