Hello users,

Hope you all good :) i just wanna ask you a question about FireTV (All-New Amazon Fire TV with 4K Ultra HD) & Home Cinema Receiver (Pioneer VSX-1016V)

Here is my issue:

I've connected FireTV to the receiver (Pioneer VSX-1016V) using HDMI input and HDMI output to the TV from the receiver (Pioneer VSX-1016V) - However I'm getting video signal from the TV but no Sound from the receiver (Pioneer VSX-1016V)?

I've looked up the VSX-1016v manual - it said i need to have separate connection one HDMI for video and one optical for audio, but my FireTV have only one HDMI.

Now I'm looking for options which allow me to use HDMI in order to separate signals one for Video and one for optical?


FireTV (HDMI) input > breakdown signals box
breakdown signal box > output HDMI to TV
breakdown signal box > output optical to Receiver (Pioneer VSX-1016V)

Hoping to buy from UK source and I shall look forward to hear from you soon.
