In terms of external sources such as Fios cable box/PS4/PS3, is there any benefit to running them first into the C8 and then into the receiver? I appreciate that I can use the C8 to work the cable box etc. and that I would lose this ability if I run the fios signal into the receiver first.
Any pointers here? Note that the receiver is HDMI 2.0 only and I am aware of the optical cable workaround necessary given the 2.2 copy protection issue.
Run everything to your avr via hdmi, than hdmi out to tv. That way you get HD audio from all your sources. If your receiver does not support arc use an optical cable to get sound from streaming apps.
