Sony KD65XF7005 and DENON AVR-X1000 no sound through optical

Dec 14, 2018

I just bought a Sony KD65XF7005 and since it´s a 4K TV and my receiver does not support 4k passthrough I want to use Netflix and Youtube from the Smart functions in the TV (and not my PS4 for example).

The receiver does not have ARC support so I´m using an optical cable between the TV and receiver.

I have set the receiver to "TV-Audio" and changed the settings in the tv to use "external speakers/home theatre". But no sound.

Am I missing something? Do I need to do anything else in the settings in the receiver? I'm grateful for anything that could lead me closer to solving my issue, thanks!
