    TiVo Premier->NSZ-GT1-> Panasonic TV (via HDMI)
    Panasonic Reciever (via optical)

    When watching TV without receiver I want stereo audio to be taken from HDMI

    When watching TV with receiver I want the audio (5.1 signal) to be taken from optical to receiver AND HDMI connection for TV speakers

    Is this possible?

    What should my audio settings be?

    If I choose optical as the priority I lose my audio to my TV

    I apologize in advance if this is a newbie question – just can’t seem to find the answer through search at this forum, tku, tku

    Probably this configuration will meet your requirement the closest.

    TiVo Premier > Sony NSZ-GT1 > Panasonic TV (via HDMI)
    Panasonic TV > Panasonic Reciever (via optical)

    Typically in this scenario you will only receive stereo sound, so it doesn't quite meet his original requirements.

    Actually, most television systems will downmix the audio output to suit the number of speakers. However, a parallel process will bit-stream the digital audio from the source through the digital optical output. As long, as his television has either "pass-through" or "dolby digital" options for this output then he should be fine with that configuration.
