There still seems to be a little bit of confusion here... The HDMI does still send an audio signal to the receiver... The problem is, the receiver is not doing anything with the signal coming into it other than passing it right on out another port... Meaning it is not 'grabbing' the audio off of the cable... It is just feeding it on through... which requires for audio to be sent to the receiver in another way...


This is true for HDMI pass through receivers. To get the audio from the HDMI to the receiver you either have to run separate audio from the device feeding the HDMI or run an audio link back to the receiver from the TV.

If the receiver has HDMI repeater capabilities, it can directly access the audio on the HDMI for direct processing in the receiver while sending the video on to the TV. (The Onkyo 606 which is recommended earlier in this thread does have repeater capabilites.)

If anybody is looking for a new amp, you should go check your local Circuit City. All amps are 40% off. I just picked up an Onkyo TX-SR806 for $600. This particular amp has 5 HDMI inputs on the back and is 130 Watts/channel.

No offense, but shopping at liquidation sales is for suckers. 40% off of MSRP is rarely a good deal. For example, in your case, you could have purchased that same receiver from Amazon for $617 and you wouldn't have had to pay tax (and I've seen that receiver for as low as $500 over the last couple of months), and it wouldn't have been all sales final.

Unless CC gets to 75% off, I wouldn't step foot in there. By then, everything will be gone, however, because everyone walking in off the street thinks 25% - 50% off is a smoking deal. But it's not.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

So what should a person look for if the want a receiver that can handle both video and audio over HDMI?

Thanks
