Can I hook up a roku 2xs to my yamaha rxa 2010 in order to play streamed content through my home theatre using 7.1 sound. And if so, what inputs should be used , i.e., optical, hdmi, or? and what input should I then turn to play such.

Yes,lots of people (including me) connect our Roku's to our AVR's via HDMI.Just choose which HDMI input you want to use on the AVR,then select that input when you want to stream something.The output from the AVR should go to the tv via HDMI.There is no optical output on the Roku 2-XS

I also connect the analog A/V output from my Roku 2-XS directly to the tv so i can watch w/o having to turn the AVR On.This is useful when i want to watch the news(and some other content),since i don't need surround sound for that.

Roku only supports 5.1 / 7.1 via HDMI passthrough.
