Getting Netflix to work with my surround sound receiver

Hello All - Looking for some help on how I can get surround sound from Netflix. I pulled my old receiver out of retirement to hook up to my new Sony TV. I get tv sound but no netflix. Wondering if an Optical cord would work or if my receiver is too old. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Here are a couple photos of my tv and receiver

Are you streaming Netflix on the TV itself? How do you have the TV and receiver connected? Some TVs (like my LGs) don't do ARC for apps (like Netflix), only OTA. So you need an optical cable from the TV to the receiver in addition to the HDMI cable.

While something is playing on Netflix, press the down button. Might have to do it twice to highlight the Audio and Subtitles icon. If you get no sound with Surround Sound selected, you may have to select Stereo.

I went through the exact same thing when my Onkyo died and I had to revert back to an old Sherwood.

CIAO!

Is that the back of the Roku box?
If you have set the Roku in setting / Netflix for surround then you will need the spdif optical cable.
If stereo then it will come from one of those stereo pairs.
What connections a're on the AVR?
