Does this work?

New to the serious av world so just had a couple of questions regarding the receiver. Awaiting delivery of speakers so still can't test it out properly.
I've bought a denon avrx2000 receiver

1) I've plugged in the sky box into HDMI 1 and obviously got the out HDMI plugged into the teles HDMI ARC port. Now I know if I want to watch the sky box then I'm assuming the receiver needs to be on. The question is, if I turn the volume to 0 on the receiver will I still get audio from the teles speakers?? (Say for if I get up early for work and don't want to wake the rest of the house lol).

2) I've searched the web on how to connect the wii to the receiver and have found two solutions. I just wondered if you could confirm which one is correct??
A) audio Phonos into receiver and video into tele or
B) all plugged into receiver (however did read something about the receiver not upscaling)

Many thanks

If you get back early then just turn the AV receiver down. I find I can listen at lower volumes on the AVR than I can with the TV speakers due to the improved sound quality and clarity. Hence the AVR is the best solution either for quiet listening or loud blasting.
I believe the X2000 does upconversion so you could have the component cable direct to the receiver and then this will convert it to the HDMI output. I would not worry about upscaling in the receiver since you TV will upscale as well if not better anyway. You could have the video element going direct to the TV if you wanted but there should be no need.
