Simplest answer is to run HDMI directly to the TV, and a separate digital audio cable to the receiver. Only downside is if the receiver has support for DTS-MA, you wouldn't get that (only DTS or DD5.1).
thanks jautor for the quick response.
Your solution is what we are running right now. But he wants to have the HD audio ability back. He said he can tell the difference between DTS5.1 and DTS-Master Audio (I can't, to be honest).
We just tried it with Atlona 1x2 unit.
The TV has 3D with Dolby Digital 5.1 fine, but Yamaha is flashing PCM 2-channel with no sound.
We probably gonna search for a dual output DVD player or another receiver depends on which one is cheaper.
Thanks for the help!
