We have a HDR-FOX T2 and are going to replace the TV and also get a 5.1 surround sound system. The one I am looking at manual says to context things like the T2 with a HDMI to it and the video is passed to the TV. The T2 manual says to context a HDMI to TV and SPDIF (optical cable?) to audio. The TV we are getting has Audio Return Channel so can play sound via the external amplifier. Now in common with much else with this I am very confused as I notice here sound from HD can’t be controlled if using optical. Would I be right in thinking the best thing is to just connect via a HDMI lead and use the diverted sound output from the TV to the amplifier?
