Question about Denon Audio Players & Recorders
I have Chromecast on HDMI4 of my tv. My tv is HDMI to the receiver. There is no HDMI4 option on my receiver setup.
If your receiver has an HDMI input that you are connected to from an HDMI output of your TV; then yes you can listen to it in surround sound.
The HDMI input that you are using on your receiver must be designated as a TV input if it has the capability of being "assignable" in your receiver setup options; or otherwise just connected via HDMI on the rear or front panel of the chassis on TV inputs section.
Once the proper connections are confirmed, select your receiver input to TV. The TV output mode must be set to HDMI; or you will not get any sound or picture if that is the only connection. You'll have to refer to the receiver manual on how to do this if the output mode does not select automatically as I do not know what gear you are using.
If you have your speaker setup in a 5.0 or 5.1 setup; depending on the decoding capabilities of your receiver; you should be able to get audio through each channel in a variety of ways. Refer to your receiver manual for the decoding format compatibility. The decoding may also be performed by your TV as well.

you need a digital coax cable and then connect it to 6.1 also the digital cable type is not a coomon type so check that also

SOURCE: HDMI sound?
I had the same problem with my PS3. I have a HD cable box with HDMI out, a Sony DVD player with HDMI out. The Sony receiver STR-DG800 only has the HDMI inputs (sat/tv and dvd) and the HDMI is only a pass through port and will not decode audio.
I purchase a HDMI 4 port switch from Newegg (HS-41A0 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812168003&Tpk=HS-41A0) to hook up the DVD and PS3 to the DVD HDMI and switch between the DVD player and the PS3. It took me several days to figure out how to make this work with the settings on the reciver.
1 the DVD player must use the coaxial in jack for sound on the receiver.
2. the PS3 must use the optical connection on video1
3. the sound settings in the PS3 must be set to PCM
4. set the sound setting on the receiver to the following
a. on the remote press AMP button then the MENU button, next press the down arrow to you see 5- AUDIO SET - then press enter.
b.set sound decode priorty to PCM
c. next scroll down to you see digital assign - press enter
assign VID1 OPTICAL to DVD ( this allows the pcm output from the PS3 to play through the receiver), next assign DVD to COAXIAL setting DVD to DVD (this allows the digital sound to play from your DVD player).
So when you use your remote and select DVD, you can use your PS3 or DVD through the 1 DVD HDMI port.

Solved problem with Yamaha HTR-6040 AV Receiver. My daughter had inadvertently changed the program to "Direct Stereo" mode which allows sources to bypass the decoders and DSP processors so you can listen to 2-Channel PCM and Analog sources. Nothing to decode digital audio in this setting!

This might somewhat help. Today I went back .. I went HDMI out of the Cable box and DVD player into 2 of the TVs HDMI ins. The digital audio out from each, straight to the receiver and things are working ok. All speakers are working OK. Sound isnt as loud or crisp but unfortunately I found no other solution.

BD and DVR hooked up to the receiver and from the receiver to the TV right? If yes: Your receiver set to pass sound trough to the TV, if you want sound from the home theater setting has to be changed.

To do the reset you need to turn the receiver on, then on the front panel of the receiver press and hold the "VCR/DVR" button while doing that press the "STANDBY/ON" button. You will see the word "Clear" in the display screen and the receiver will go into standby mode. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR AUDIO & VIDEO ASSIGNMENTS ON THE RECEIVER PLUS YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR SPEAKER CONFIGURATIONS, SPEAKER DISTANCE AND ALL LEVEL CALIBRATION SETTINGS. YOU WILL ALSO LOSE ANY PROGRAMMED RADIO STATIONS IN MEMORY. Once the receiver goes into standby mode turn it back on and go thru the setup menu for all custom settings., Thanks, JT
