I'm trying to create a setup where I can simply turn my TV on and listen to the audio (cable box) without having to turn on the receiver and go through the whole setup with 5.1 on while watching the news. Also my girlfriend is not very tech savvy and has issues with turning everything on to the correct setting. Is there a way to do this without going through the HDMI "Monitor"?
Ideally, I'd like to turn on my Denon 2313 receiver when I want to and use the TV's speakers for majority of my tv usage. How can this be accomplished? I've tried multiple settings and nothing seems to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
