Please t report your success or failure with a receiver/ home audio setup...
Sent from my Nexus 4 using xda premium
I use it with my Onkyo receiver. It has an HDMI input in the front of the receiver. It also happens to have a USB port that I use to power the Chromecast. I didn't have to go to the back of the unit at all.
Good news is that I get Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound with both Netflix and YouTube. When I do Chrome browser in my laptop the sound switches to "all channel stereo".
