    Hi all,

    Getting the new 'Xbox one X' on Tuesday and since discovered my AV receiver (Onkyo TX-NR515) doesn't support '4K pass through'

    Planning on upgrading the receiver in the near future but for now im guessing i need to run hdmi from Xbox direct to TV (sony XE80).

    How do i get the audio to the Receiver?

    And what do i select on the receiver?

    I think the One X has an optical out so use that to send sound to your AVR. :)

    Yep that’s the one, an optical cable is only a few quid.

    You will need to select optical as the input but I’m not familiar with your AVR so I’m not sure how you would do so, shouldn’t be hard to spot though.

    And by the way, a long optical cable is cheaper and more reliable than a long HDMI cable. So if your AVR is far away from the TV, putting the Xbox near the TV would make more sense.
