I get Netflix/Amazon picture and device sound.
My solution was to direct connect one of the devices and outout the sound via Optical.
If this makes any sense, is this the only way it will work?
I have all my components connected to avr via hdmi, than one hdmi to tv. For tv apps such as Netflix, YouTube etc I have an optical cable connected for that. No issues whatsoever. Make sure settings are correct on tv as well.
If you connect directly you are limited to dd 5.1 only and that's fine if that is all you need but for Bluray/4K player I wouldn't go that route. You would be missing out on Dolby true HD/dts master audio/Dolby atmos.
