(sigh) That's what I was afraid of.
I can directly connect the uverse, however, the issue is my receiver is older and has no HDMI inputs and only one optical input (which I need for the Xbox). I don't think they even make an optical switch do they?
I think at some point I'll probably just have to get a new receiver, but I'll have to wait a while since I just bought the new TV.
If anyone has suggestions (outside of buying another piece of equipment), that would be great. Oh, my DVD player uses the coax input for audio, so that is unavailable.
