My Set up:
I followed onkyo manual set up and connected all the components to receiver and one hdmi is running to TV from receiver. Everything is working great but I dont want the audio from home theatre 24/7. I looked into HDMI pass through and got confused. Onkyo talks about RIHD and Samsung talks about Anynet.
I did some research and then I connected toslink digital audio cable from my STB to receiver. Now with this I turn on TV and receiver (switch to aux mode) , I get audio from TV and also receiver. I have to mute one of them based on programs I am watching on TV. That is irritating to do everytime.
I dont know how "standby HDMI pass through" works for my set up. Can you guys help me out?
Online research says HDMI audio is better than optical cable, so is there any way I can use TV speakers for some programs and receiver for some dish programs using only HDMI cables.
If thats not possible what are my options?
Thanks in advance
