Personally the OP has all the information needed to hook up his ARV you CAN use RCA you can use Fiber optic cable and you can also use HDMI. it's just a matter of how you choose to do it they will ALL work within there operational parameters and you can trust YOUR ARV's OSD as to what the setting is your AVR has a decoder built right into it.
Bet this gets closed to many trolls.

You were asked very nicely to get back on topic, despite some of you reporting this thread the nonsense has continued therefore, as I clearly cannot leave you to your own devices I am going to close this, if the OP comes back and want's it re-opened I will do so and at the same time apply a few thread bans.
