It appears that there are two ways this can be done:
A- I hook up all my components (roku, Streaming box, PC) to the HDMI inputs on my TV then I hook the optical audio out from the TV to the AV reciever.
B- I hook up all my components to the AV receiver and then run a single HDMI cable to the TV.
I tried doing a little research, and I found a single post where someone said option B would be better because of something about a different kind of surroundsound that bluerays use that the TV might not be able to output through the optical audio out, so it's better to do it B over A.
Can anyone confirm if doing it one way or the other matters? Is it (semi) universally agreed that B is better?
