Hello, I am new to this site and have a few questions. I just bought a new sony str-dg800 reciever along with polk audio RM6900 speakers and a sony SXDR KDS-60A2020 tv and sony dvp-nc85h cd/dvd player with hdmi progressive scan. Now if I can just get it all hooked-up and working to its potental. The problem is after hooking up the hdmi up from my dvd player to reciever to my tv. I can only get sound output through my tv speakers. In the reciver manual it reads " When playback component is connecteted to this recieverand this reciever is connected to the tv by hdmi, the sound is output from the tv speakers only. " Are the optical hookups almost as good as the hdmi or should i return this reciever and get another? Also, do any of you have this reciever? What do you think? How should i hook it up? Option #1 hdmi from dvd to reciever and hdmi from reciever to tv and audio from dvd to reciever. Or option #2 hdmi from dvd to tv and optical audio from tv to reciever? Also i will be adding HD cable soon. I have 2 hdmi imports on my tv and 2 on my reciver. What do you guys think?
