Do you have any 4K sources? If not, continue to run everything thru the AVR and connect HDMI cable to TV.

If you plan to use the TV smart apps then also connect an optical cable from the TV to AVR. The OPT-1 input on the AVR is defaulted to TV input so all you have to do is switch the Denon to TV input when you want to listen to the smart TV apps.

If possible my goal is to plug a couple of components into the new tv (sony z9d in case its connections matter) and just send the sound out to my speakers if possible. Appreciate if anyone can point me in the right direction. Thanks!
sometimes connecting external sources to the TV results in audio being converted to stereo instead of 5.1. Depends on the TV. Test it out and see what happens.

By "just send the sound out to my speakers" you mean thru the Denon, correct. I don't think there's a way to connect the speakers directly to the TV.

Thanks very much afrogt! I will pick up an optical cable for the time being. Yes, I did mean through the Denon. I will see if the optical works. Can always try and see how it works and adjust from there, good advice. Appreciate your time and help, take care!

Any components that are NOT sending 4K signals can still be connected through the AVR. 1080p and lower will pass through just fine.

Any 4K Blu-ray player will have dual HDMI outputs, so you'd connect the first HDMI to the display for 4K video and then run the second audio-only HDMI to the receiver for hi-rez audio. If you go optical/coaxial digital you won't be able to get hi-rez audio.

For other 4K devices, it depends on what output options are available.

Be aware that you can get a 4K compatible AVR that's as good as your 1910 for not that much money. For example for $299 you can get an X1300W which will support HDCP 2.2 for 4k passthrough as well as provide superior audio with MultEQ XT: http://www.accessories4less.com/make...eceiver/1.html

Sell the 1910 for $100-150 and you're not out that much money then you don't have to deal with any wiring shenanigans.

Hi batpig, thanks very much for the information. Still have and use your guide to my 1910.

I don't have any 4k capable equipment, so I am kind of starting from scratch. Just figured I would try to get something setup until I made my next move. I just moved into a building and my wife is not a fan of my speakers and running wire, ha. I don't know if I will ever get to atmos while in this building, so I am torn between getting a receiver that can handle that or one of the cheaper models. Will probably make that decision soon. I didn't think I could get that much for the 1910, but good to know it may be possible. Appreciate the help and advice!

The only reason you need to upgrade the receiver and/or do anything weird with the wiring is to facilitate the passing of 4k video sources. If you don't have any 4k gear then just hook up with HDMI to the 1910 normally.

Thanks, I'll probably do that for the time being. Take care!
