You can get a HDMI switch that extracts audio, or just an audio extractor.
You can connect from your tv to your receiver via "TV Out" if you have it. Either AV cables or Optical. And then from the Apple TV to TV via hdmi. Works on my Technics receiver from 95.
This seems much better idea and a lot easier with out need to buy any extra equipments. Thank you.
It would be the way to go, which I forgot about. If your only getting 2.0 and want 5.1 audio then your TV likely doesn't pass the signal through, and you would need the extractor to get 5.1This seems much better idea and a lot easier with out need to buy any extra equipments. Thank you.
That's assuming his old JVC has 5.1 analog inputs.You could also keep the newer Yamaha receiver and use it just as a processor and the JVC as an amp. This would give you the latest surround decoding plus HDMI along with the nice sound you get from the JVC amplifiers.

You will need one that has an HDMI input, and HDMI + Optical (S/PDIF) outputs.Thanks, so i will get an hdmi switch with 2 hdmi outs. So my 1 hdmi out will be 2. one of them will go to tv and the other will change to rca and goes to my receiver? Hope i understood it right.
No, odds are very high that your TV out will only output stereo. If you like 5.1 surround, THAT is almost certainly not the answer. I'm guessing you need to either replace that receiver or get a splitter (not 1 to 2 HDMIs) but 1 HDMI to HDMI and toslink (not necessarily this one but something in this direction)...
Then it's HDMI in from TV to HDMI out to your TV for the video signal, Toslink (optical) out to your JVC receiver. Check Amazon, there are MANY of these HDMI to Toslink splitters. They should preserve 5.1 surround if you do it this way. The picture is just a picture of one I quickly found (not an endorsement of that particular model). Read reviews on Amazon to find a good version of one of these.
Stereo is fine with me, ty
If you have optical out on your TV, then that probably will work (for stereo). Sometimes people find a slight delay (audio behind video) with that setup so you might want to test it. A sufficiently long toslink cable for that should be cheaper than buying the converter/splitter boxes.
