    Is this possible?

    with my current setup, I have a second receiver that is use to power the speakers to my deck.
    A Sirius radio was used to play music out there.
    now I want my google tv to play to those speakers.

    I have google tv connected to my surround sound with HDMI.
    Can I hook the optical out on the google tv to my second receiver and get audio that way?

    do they work at the same time?

    I agree, but I have the "Inception" blu-ray movie that will not feed English audio on optical??? Other languages are ok. HDMI audio works fine. I'm a blu-ray newbie; is this a known problem?

    This is a typical symptom when the accepting device of the optical output cannot decode the audio input. Most likely, the English track is either in AC3 or DTS audio and your digital optical input device can only decode PCM or Dolby Digital. You should check the settings to see if you can adjust the output to a format accepted by the receiving device.
