TV sound not playing through reciever


Jan 26, 2014
I have a Yamaha HTR 6068 reciever hooked up with a Samsung Smart TV and Foxtel. There is a HDMI cable running from the Foxtel to the reciever, and a HDMI to the TV. The Audio works fine when using foxtel but when I switch it to TV, it only plays through the TV speakers. When I change the TV sound output from "TV speakers" to "audio out", the sound stops playing through the TV, but no sound through the external speakers.

i think you need to run a cable from the audio out of your tv to an input of the receiver and then switch the receiver's input setting to the appropriate selection. Should work fine then.
