ROKU Ultra

I have a 7.2 speaker system hooked up to my Yamaha receiver. Should I put my ROKU Ultra on the TV and run the digital audio out to my receiver, or should I place the ROKU Ultra on the receiver and run an HDMI cable to the TV? All are 4K.

Re: ROKU Ultra


Thanks for the inquiry.

If you are planning to have the Roku Ultra audio being played through your speaker system, then we wold recommend that you connect your Roku device to the AVR directly.
