I have a Sony Bravia TV XBR-65A9G, a Denon receiver AVR-S750H, and Spectrum cable box. What is the best set-up for the best sound and all around best experience? Should I run a traditional setup of the following:
1. HDMI cable from the cable box to CBL/SAT IN on the receiver.
2. An HDMI cable from HDMI OUT 4k (eARC) on the receiver to HDMI eARC IN on the TV
1. HDMI cable from the cable box to HDMI IN on the TV
2. An HDMI cable from the eARC HDMI IN on the TV to the eARC OUT on the receiver.
Will Set-up 2 support 5.1 surround?
Final note...and an annoying one...sometimes I lose sound when I rewind the DVR cable box. Is this an HDMI handshake problem.
