Re: How to connect a Roku TV to a receiver using HDMI cable

I'm through with Dish Network and want to connect a ROKU Express 4K+ to a Yamaha 665V and VIZIO D650iB-2 television. I'm not a Tech so a simple explanation would suffice and a schematic diagram would be perfect. Thanks, William.

Re: How to connect a Roku TV to a receiver using HDMI cable

I have a Yamaha RX-4663 receiver and a sharp roku 5218 tvs and I can't get my receiver to play tv sound. I have it connected to HDMI ARC on the tv to HDMI out on the back of my receiver. Can someone assist me with this please?

Re: How to connect a Roku TV to a receiver using HDMI cable

Here is what I did. All I know is that it works. My receiver is a Yamaha fix-v373. 

i run an hdmi cable from the Roku to the hdmi1 slot on the tv. I run a cable from the tv’s hdmi2 to the receivers hdmi1. I solved the sound issue by running an optical cable from the tv to the receiver’s  optical port.
 

On the TV, set the sound to the receiver.
