Trying to get sound to play through receiver speakers. JVC TV, model LT-40FN97 with the Onkyo receiver, TX-844. The incoming signal is HDMI coming from a ROKU XD2. into the back of the TV.
So I have internet hook up through Roku, streaming services and Pandora only. No cable
I can't get sound through the receiver?
Based on JVC manual, they say you cannot use "output audio" when you have digital sound from an HDMI device connected to HDMI 1 or 2 on the back of the TV??
But I did have this working until I recently relocated the components and removed some no longer used components. The incoming source hasn't changed.
Any advice appreciated.

Got it, there is an AV plug out of the Roku, connected that directly to the back of receiver.

Using the AV single pin plug to a two connector, I guess they are analog standard jack plugs. So no reason to go into the TV first.
