Thanks for the replies!
The TV I'm planning is Samsung UN60F8000. BTW, the FiOS HD STB is HDMI.
My concern is the best way to pick up the audio from TV sources, such as Netflix, YouTube, for it to reach the receiver and surround speakers. Sounds like the answer is to use ARC, which this TV does have, per the specs. Would that mean 2 HDMIs between the TV & receiver? One to send the video feed to the TV when the source is something other than the TV and one for the ARC?
Fm TV manual: This TV supports 3D and ARC (Audio Return Channel) functions via an HDMI cable. ARC enables
digital sound to be output using just an HDMI cable. However, ARC is only available through the HDMI
(ARC) port and only when the TV is connected to an ARC-enabled AV receiver. Connect the HDMI
cable to the TV's HDMI (ARC) connector and the device's HDMI output connector.
"" Certain functions such as the Smart Hub may not be available if 3D Auto View is set to On while Source is
in HDMI mode. In this case, set 3D Auto View or 3D Mode to Off.
So I have to check to see if my receiver (several years old) has ARC.
Duh: From what BIslander says, it sounds like an 'audio out' fm the TV to 'in' to the receiver, but from the Samsung TV manual, it sounds like the opposite . . . . ?
