    Hi there, I am confused about the yamaha av63+ package. From reading this forum I thought that the reciever was able to transmit 5.1 sound over hdmi. However the bloke from petertyson has emailed me saying that it doesn't and that I'd need an optical cable. Is this right? If so it wrecks my plans and I have to start looking again! Thank you. Mick.

    Your not talking about connecting SkyHD to it are you, because if you are then you do need an optical (or digital coax connection) for 5.1 from SkyHD. Stereo only over HDMI from Sky. This is the same for every AV receiver as its a Sky problem not a Receiver dependant problem.

    If your not then the PeterTyson is wrong the AV63+ does accept audio over HDMI, its the AV63 that doesn't.

    No I only have Sky+ so I know I will need optical for that. But my xbox 360 and dvd player should be okay through hdmi shouldn't it?

    Wonder if he is thinking of a different system....
