Apple TV sound to Harmon Kardon AVR220

Posted on 2011-03-13
Last Modified: 2013-11-13
I have an Apple TV, a Harmon Kardon AVR220 and a Samsung DLP.  I cannot get sound to run through the Harmon Kardon receiver from the Apple TV.  I have the Apple TV connected to the TV using an HDMI cable and tried to run an optical audio cable from the Apple TV to the Harmon Kardon receiver but won't play sound on any input.  The receiver sees it as "analog".

Any help would be appreciated...

You need to change the Input setup on your receiver. If you've still got the manual for it, its on page 18
You'll probably find all of your inputs default to analog, and you'll need to choose one that you cn change to 'digital in'

I believe you'll need to press the digital select button on the front of the receiver?
