    I think I know the answer to this, and I feel dumb for asking it, but here goes:

    I have cable going directly into my tv (no cable box). I have a DVD Player with hdmi cables going to my Onkyo 606, and then HDMI going out to the TV. If I just want the stereo sound, from my cable, to get to the receiver, do I have to use a toslink from the audio-out on the tv to the receiver, or is there some way the audio can come back out of the tv from the HDMI in?

    (I'm guess you can't get audio 'out' to come from an 'hdmi in', so the answer would be yes, but I just want to know for sure).
