Obviously you just need an optical cable running from your audio source (in my case airplay through apple tv3) to the optical in on the back of the AVR. When you're done listening to music, you just switch back the audio source in the AVR for that input to hdmi, now you're back to watching and listening to TV.
There might be other ways to do it but that's how I have mine setup - only need to change that one setting so for me it's simple and works well
I see, but that doesn't seem to allow you to pick from a multitude
of other audio sources. It just seems to allow you to pick a different input for the sound (say optical) on that same AVR source/channel, correct?
What I was saying I liked was the ability to pick from a multitude of different audio sources, be it AUX, CD, Xbox, DVR, etc, with "Multitude" being the key. Your description sounds like a workaround that will allow you to pick one, maybe 2 audio sources separately from the video source you have on...if I understand you correctly.
I don't mean to hijack the thread so I'll go investigate this. Thanx
