Wondering how I can configure my AVR 1612 to receive sound from from my HDTV. I have the TV connected via HDMI via the monitor out on the receiver. I have the optical audio in on the reciever occupied by an optical in from my Macbook. I thought the AVR1612 would take audio in via the HDMI between the TV and receiver but I can seem to find the setting to get the sound to work. Any insight is appreciated. Thanks!

What specific tv do you have? Is it ARC capable? Did you use the ARC port if so? Did you tell your tv and avr this is your desired setup? ARC(Audio Return Channel) feature via HDMI is a feature of your avr in any case, not sure about your tv. Does your tv offer any other sound output option if it doesn't have ARC and you only have one optical input on your avr?

If the TV is HDMI 1.4/ARC capable, then you must set the HDMI-CEC feature to ON as well as set audio to external speakers, while on the AVR you must set HDMI Control to ON.

Also note there is a dedicated thread for Denon AVR-XX12 Owners linked in my sig.

Thanks! The TV is a Samsung PN43E450. I am not sure if it has ARC or not. There is an optical out but the only optical in on the AVR is being taken up by my Macbook audio.

That does not appear to be ARC capable so you would need to connect the optical audio out from the TV to an optical switch which in turn would be connected to the AVR. Why do you want to pass the TV audio back to the AVR? Do you not have a cable/sat box?

No cable/sat box, just an antenna. Thanks for the link on the switch. That looks to be the ticket.
