I don't have one of those but I did buy a WD live plus for my parents and hooked it up. So you hooked up the HDMI out from the WDlive to one of the Yamaha's HDMI inputs, and the yamaha's output hdmi goes to the television right? The question I have is so you have picture but no sound? To get the toslink cable to work you have to enable a different audio option instead of hdmi -- i think it's spdif raw to get it to work.
OOP edit: Now i remember why i answered this question. I have a yamaha. It sounds like you can get sound but not surround sound -- do only the right and left and sub indicators light up on the receiver display? To get six channel i had to go into the yamaha's setup and then under one of the sections that has hdmi switch from amp + tv to just amp, and that seems to switch it from 2 channel to 6 channel audio.
