    I'll give it a shot!

    Pretend I don't own a PC, my PC is now separate from this HDTV!

    I have a phono lead which is red and white connections? Will this work?

    @ H8 : Not if it's only an audio receiver and not an AV unit. I've got a Denon receiver with no video capabilities.

    @Irish : Sounds like you need a simple stereo RCA cable. Will the TV output surround? It may not as was stated before.

    But this is his AV receiver .....:roll:
    If he wants just adudio use the red/White RCA plugs fro th e sound out on the motherboard to them.cable like this

    So your AV RECEIVER doe not look like the one below ????? Then why have a title "how to get audio from HDTV to av receiver" It should have been just HDTV to Stereo receiver.... A/V means Audio and Video....

    Also just because you tv out puts Dolby 5.1 does not mean it will go to a stereo receiver and out put 5.1 digital ,Most TVs with return channel sound are for high end AV Receivers and only out put 2.1 sound (same out put from the TV speakers)

    Its exactly the same as the photo, I use it for my PC too which supports DD and DTS 5.1 surround sound.
    I've already said that all I want is audio from it and not video.
    Is it not possible to do this without using a HDMI connection for video? This is confusing me!

    OK so you want the TV to decode Dolby 5.1 to the receiver ? with a 2.1 stereo out put RCA cable....

    Well it wont happen you need a plug on the back of that has return or /from tv on it,Only way to get the source you want audio is with HDMI.You could get a HDMI switch box cheap and plug the sources in to that then the AV and then TV.That is if your out of input plugs on the back off the AV.

    As for the TV out put only 2.1 if you have a A/V receiver that has HIGH ZONE 2 return is what would work from TV to AV Receiver.But that is a fake 3d audio ....or hybrid if you will.

    I'm aware of that! I'm not trying to get 5.1 with a stereo cable! I just want audio.
    I really mustn't be making myself clear at all. Where is this troll thread come from??

    It's simple... I want it so that when I'm watching TV, I will hear audio from my speakers and not the TV speakers. I want my receiver to do this for me. I can't explain it much clearer than this!

    If you want digital sound, you could simply use a Spdif optical or coax plugged from your tv to your AV receiver (that is if your receiver has those plug).
