This is probably a stupid question to the well-informed HT gurus out there. But, any help appreciated.
After purchasing a Yamaha HTR-6230, I found out that it does NOT process audio from the HDMI input to the receiver's decoders.
It does however, pass the audio to the HDMI outputs which in my case is my LCD TV, but what's the point of passing 5.1 audio to stereo LCD speakers? Duh.
So . . . it would be helpful if anyone knows of a list of 5.1 receivers that will PROCESS the audio from the HDMI cable to the receiver's amp & speakers.
My dream setup would be a new HTPC connected to a 5.1 receiver using only the HDMI cable.
