 Post subject: Use HDMI ARC as just HDMI

As I understand it, HDMI ARC was an added feature to allow newer audio formats to travel along the same HDMI cable to whatever audio receiver set up you have.

Does anyone know if I can just use the HDMI ARC output to send video to a regular HDMI input on my TV?

I am looking at a Vizio 5.1 soundbar system that has a TOSlink input, and HDMI input and an HDMI ARC output.

I would like to connect my DVR via HDMI to the TV and TOSLINK to the soundbar.

Also (and really the main reason for the soundbar if it works) I would like to connect my Roku to the HDMI input of the soundbar and then the HDMI ARC output to my TV.

Netflix uses either just stereo audio or Dolby Digital Plus. Right now I have my Roku connected to HDMI on the TV, my DVR on another HDMI input on the TV and then the TV TOSlink output to my receiver. However, the TV does not seem to allow the audio to passthrough so I basically just have stereo or "faux surround".

Any thoughts?
