Hey guys, i have just bought a Onkyo AVX-380 receiver and speakers, and was wondering if i needed an ARC TV to have Dolby HD and DTS HD?
Or will i just need to plug the PS3 and Tivo box into the in and have the hdmi wire out to the tv, and will that give me the HD audio?

Thanks!
 
You do not get HD audio via ARC. ARC is only for getting sound from the internal tuner on the TV down to the receiver. it is not designed to pass audio from other sources connected to the TV via HDMI so you would still need to connect the HDMI sources direct to the receiver.
 
awesome, so i do get hd audio then!? Obviously connecting everything via HDMI?
 
You will get HD audio if you connect your bluray player direct to the receiver via HDMI. TIVO does not play HD audio so will not get HD audio from this.
