HI everyone.


If i plug HDMI AND optic cables out from the same receiver to the TV, does the unit select the optic for sound and HDMI for video by default?


Thanks.

It would be unusual for a TV to have a digital audio input. Most just have a digital output which is tied to the internal tuner. If there's sound on the HDMI, then the set will get its audio there. Many sets have a stereo pair associated with an HDMI input which allows for audio when connected to a component with a DVI output.


In general, TV sets are not designed for the kind of switching you see in a receiver. Each input has video and audio and you can't mix and match.
