I removed the cable box and went with an antenna. Getting the local digital stations but only stereo

sound through the receiver, Pioneer Elite VSX-31. TV is connected to the receiver via HDMI cable.

I connected the audio via stereo cable. I do havean optical out on the tv but having trouble connecting

as it's a vertical connection and it won't stay. Any thoughts?

Hi Dave,


Welcome to the forum.


You won't be able to get DD-5.1 through the stereo cable. You will need to use the optical cable for surround-sound.


The only other possibility is if both devices supported passing the tuner's DD-5.1 to the AVR through HDMI's audio-reverse-channel (ARC). But that's a long-shot.
