My bottom line question is "how to enable digital sound pass through via the optical TV out to the AVR optical In"?
2) ARC - I am using HDMI port 3 - labeled as ARC, I have enable Anynet+CEC on the HDMI in TV Menu (is this required), and selected ARC "on" in the reciver options. Still no sound has been heared from the AVR .
did I do all the right steps?
Appreciate your help!
Since you're running optical from the TV to the AVR, its either that you haven't selected the correct input on the AVR or are on the correct input and haven't activated optical or toslink or digital (depending on your AVR) as the input. On my Marantz 8801, there is a setup menu where you select which type of input per input you want active. I assume that other AVRs have something similar to this.
