As per note on page 47 of 23FD manual:
When ANALOG AUDIO is selected at Output Terminal, no audio signals are output from the HDMI OUT terminal or DIGITAL OUT terminal (pages 19 and 46).
You could always send the 2-channel analog audio to the TV, but I expect it would be a copy of the L/R channels, so missing the center channel dialog unless you switch the "Audio output mode" setting from "Multi-Channel" to "2ch" every time you switch between the two. Also, your TV needs to be able to play audio from analogue input while showing HDMI video.
The other option would be to send "digital out" to AVR and 2 channel analogue to TV. You would not need to change the multi-channel setting, but you would loose the lossless audio. Your TV would still need to be able to play analogue audio and HDMI video.
Is it worth it to consider upgrading AVR to one that has HDMI inputs?
