Sound from web content on TV through AV Receiver
Wondering if anyone could shed some light on this for me:
I have an Onkyo TX-SR876 AV Receiver and a Sony Bravia KDL-46NX703 television. The AV Receiver is connected to the Television via a HDMI cable (QED Performance HDMI 1.3 if I correctly recollect) and all other devices (Sky+ HD, PS3 etc.) are connected to the receiver - I use the sound on my reciever for everything and even have managed to get the TV switching on/off controlling the power of the Receiver as well as controller the volume on the receiver - the TV speakers automatically switch themselves off when the receiver is on.
The issue is with web content such as YouTube and iPlayer using the TV, I don't get any sound (from the receiver) but what this does do is automatically switch the receiver to the Game/TV input.
What I would (ideally) like is sound from web content on the TV from the receiver without having to run another cable between the TV and Receiver.
As far as I am aware the receiver doesn't support ARC - and I am not sure the cable does either (doesn't it need to be HDMI 1.4?), but am baffled as to why it is switching input automatically, and I believe that it must be receiving a signal from the TV to do so - so why no sound?
Any views would be greatly appreciated.
