    Do either of the Vizio's HDMI ports say 'ARC' on them? If so, HDMI from the BD player to one of the inputs on the receiver, then HDMI from the receiver to the ARC port on the TV.

    If not, then same as above but with a SPDIF cable from the TV to an input on the receiver.
  2. It doesn't say arc just 2 HDMI plugs..and the coaxial plug and blue green yellow etc ones.. What's spdif?
  3. Optical or coaxial digital audio.
  4. Can I use a regular audio cable to run from coaxial to audio on bluray?
  5. From the TV to the receiver, not to the bluray. The bluray's audio goes over HDMI.

    Standard RCA should be fine. It's only so the audio from the tuner in your TV goes out by the speaker system.
