33coupe: Ah right, I thought I read somewhere about ARC not needing optical.

So the issue I have is connecting the freeview aerial to the receiver. From what I understand this cant be done, would need a freeview box for hdmi connection. Is that right?


The aerial goes directly into your TV where it is decoded by the onboard Freeview tuner. The HDMI cable connected to HDMI 2 (TV) and MAIN HDMI Out (receiver) sends the Freeview audio back to the receiver. Just press the TV/CD button on your Onkyo remote and you should have sound. There is nothing else for you to purchase. Done.

Also, as my in-laws toshiba doesnt have ARC will they need the optical cable for sky (normal sky not mysky). They have same receiver & speaker package as me.


They will need an optical cable from the Sky decoder to the receiver.

Oh really, that is great news! I will have a 'proper' look tonight.

As for the sky, thanks for that will get them an optical cable.

Thats a relief.

Thanks to everyone for their help (and geekzone), without this place I would be still banging my head against the wall

An optical cable will give you 5.1 (where available) and frankly, it is almost always the most reliable way to do things as some companies seem to have 'interesting' interpretations of how to implement ARC. Pioneer and LG are two that come to mind.
