The DSS2 is too far away.
But I think I found a solution!!!
The hdmi output cable from the AVR will plug into the input of new box pictured below and then I will have another hdmi cable going from the switch box to my tv.
I will then plug a toslink cable into the DSS2 from the switcher box.
In the end I will be getting 5.1dd sent to the DSS2 and I will be able to control the volume with my AVR remote.
