I bought a used Onkyo TX-SR506 receiver after the seller told me it supports HDMI input. I connected it in the following setup:
- PC HDMI out ➡ receiver HDMI in
- receiver HDMI out ➡ TV HDMI in
Doing so I got both audio and video outputted to the TV, and I couldn't get the audio outputted via the receiver. 90 pages later in the instruction manual I come across this devastating paragraph -
Is there a workaround to this limitation? I really hoped to use only HDMI connections and avoid optical / analog audio inputs. I find it puzzling that a receiver would have a big "HDMI" logo on it (and 4 HDMI connections) - but will act as a "pass thru" device.
