I recently bought a Yamaha v673 to power my 5.1 setup. I'm new to audio and I'm trying to figure out all the standards as well as what are the best settings/methods for connecting to my other components.
So my questions are:
Currently my tv (panasonic 3D plasma) is connected to the receiver by hdmi and optical, is this the best method if I want all the audio to go through my speakers instead of the tv?
I have a boxee box connected to my tv via hdmi and I use it mostly to watch ripped DVDs. What sound mode should I be using if I want to hear the DVDs native surround sound?
Same question but for my ps3, which is connected directly to the avr via hdmi. I use the ps3 for DVDs and blu ray.
