    I am having a problem trying to figure out if my current home theater setup can work with Google TV controlling all of it.

    My setup is as follows:
    Samsung 52" DLP (has an optical audio out)
    DirecTV HD/DVR
    Samsung 5-Disc Changer A/V receiver (no optical out, but HDMI out)
    Logitech Revue

    I can't figure out how to get the A/V receiver integrated into the system. Anyone have a similar setup working?

    SHouldn't be too difficult.

    Option #1
    DirecTV DVR --> (HDMI)---> Revue --->(hdmi)---> TV
    Revue--->TOSLink/SPDIF---->Samsung AVR


    Option #2
    DirectV DVR ---> (HDMI)--->Revue--->(HDMI)-->Samsung AVR-->(HDMI)---> TV

    Neither of those work for a couple reasons:

    Option 1: the Samsung AVR has no optical input

    Option 2: The Samsung AVR only has 1 HDMI output. No inputs.

    My only other option would be to take the audio out directly from the STB and into the AVR...I don't want to do that as I would then have no control of it through the Revue...

    ugh.
