roku ultra to avr

I need to know how to connect roku ultra to a yamaha avr. Do I connect the roku to my tv (samsung) or does the roku connect to the yamaha receiver. Thank you

Re: roku ultra to avr

Either way should work.  The traditional way was to connect all of the inputs to the receiver and use it to switch among them.  But older receivers might not pass 4k video through and if you run apps on your smart TV you need to get audio back anyway, so now it is common for TVs to have many HDMI inputs and to send audio to the receiver through HDMI ARC.
