    Try this:

    Motorola STB HDMI out>Google TV HDMI in
    Google TV HDMI out>Sony HDTV HDMI in
    Google TV optical audio out>Yamaha AVR optical audio in

    With optical cable, will the audio quality be good?

    Yes, for standard Dolby Digital and PCM audio from cable or internet streaming, audio will be the same comparing optical to HDMI. The advanced audio codecs like Dolby Digital Plus or the advanced Blu-ray audio codecs require HDMI but I am not aware of any programming from cable companies using audio that exceeds the optical audio output capabilities. You will need the proper audio settings on each device and if you have any problems setting that up, come back and give us the Motorola model number and we can help with that.
