Do you often watch stuff from the TV and not the HR34 or other boxes (BluRay, Rokus, etc)? Also is your AVR not HDMI?
It's a Bluray combo, so it doesn't have Hdmi inputs, only one output. The only inputs it has is analog left right, and optical.
By hooking the tv up directly, anything that runs through the tv can use the surround sound without any additional hook ups. But I would have settled for just hooking hr34 for now. But I'll just get the adapter.
