So I'm getting ready to hookup my Samsung UN60F7100 LED TV to my Yamaha RXA-730 receiver. Any cables leaving my TV will run to a nearby (8ft) closet that holds my receiver, Blue ray, 5.1 speaker wires for that room, Uverse box , Airport Express and Apple TV.
I assume I should run everything into the receiver to play out of the in wall 5.1 speakers that are already installed in the room. Correct? Is this a no brainer?
Anyways... My real question is what cable do I use to run from the TV? Do I just use a HDMI ARC port to the receiver or is there better audio/sound performance running both and HDMI and an optical cable?
Thanks in advance for sharing your knowledge...
