I have the same Onkyo receiver, with a PS3 in the BD/DVD input and an Apple TV in the VCR input. Both use the digital coax for audio.

I’ve plugged the CC into the receiver, and I get no audio. Searching the Onkyo manual, it say “HDMI is for audio and video signals” but I can’t seem to find way to make it actually play the audio stream from the CC. I’m beginning to wonder if I can actually input audio into the receiver via HDMI.

Any thoughts?

I am having same problem as well. I bought pioneer reciever 5.1 sound. I made it work connecting with chromecast at BD.. But problem is I don’t get audio out. there is no sound coming from receiver.

But still doesn’t work I was trying to do it for 4 hrs until I give up and return the receiver I bought. What was I trying to do is do mini karaoke. Hook chromecast… Read more »

George, many thanks for this info! I have a Vizio VL420M tv, and an Onkyo HT-R370 Home Theatre system. So, while my Vizio and Onkyo work just dandy, they are certainly a few years old. It has bugged the heck outta me that I could only get the Chromecast audio through my tv speakers rather than through my home theatre speakers; I always thought the Chromecast would be fantastic except for that one obnoxious problem. I thought I was just stuck with cruddy tv speakers for the Chromecast. I have a LOT of various electronic devices (TiVo, Roku, Blu-Ray player,… Read more »

I have optical out from TV to my receiver. When I use tv smart apps, like YouTube or Amazon, audio from receiver is perfect. I now connected the CC to HDMI-3 jack on TV, but get no audio for CC. If I switch to TV speakers it works. What am I missing?

Hi George, I know this is a year and half plus after this post- But thought it was worth a shot (especially since I’ve literally wasted a full 20+ hours trying to research this to no avail.) Anywhooo- I was given an excellent pair of Bose speakers (older wooden version) along with a nice Kenwood Receiver/DVD/CD/blah blah you get the point. I was able to hook it up perfectly fine to my cable box and works great on my t.v. Problem is the Only reason I wanted to hook it up is so that I could use it with my… Read more »

Dear George – I wonder if you can help!!! i have an Onkyo TX-SR307 receiver and a Panasonic TX-P42G10B tv. I can get a great picture when I connect my Chromecast (2nd Gen) to a spare HDMI port on the rear of the receiver, (which is the VCR/DVR port), but for the life of me I cannot get any sound through the receiver. Do you have any ideas……………Please its driving me crazy. I dont want to keep having to use my Bose mini sound link, plugged into the TV’s headphone socket, although the sound is a million times better than… Read more »

Hi George. Thanks for this, would appreciate any help with Chromecast to soundbar. TV is a Philips 58″ PFT doesn’t seem to have an ARC (no labels on HDMI ports (3). ) just bought a Samsung curved soundbar HW-J6501. When I start Chromecast it gives me sound via the TV. Thanks

Hi George. I’ve been reading through this thread and I have the same problem. I am pretty technologically stupid when it comes to anything like this so I am asking for your help. I have my tv- Sharp LC-55UB30U and my receiver- Pioneer VSX-523. How can I make this work? Looking at the back of my tv it does not look like there is a digital optical cable connection. Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated!

I am reading through this thread and it seems very helpful but I just have a question as I am still having the same problem. I am trying to broadcast sound to my receiver from my iPad watching YouTube videos through my chromecast. I do not see a digital optical cable connection on the back of my TV. My TV is a Sharp LC-55UB30U and my receiver is a Pioneer VSX-523. Any help would be appreciated! I have a party on Saturday night and would love to have this figured out by then. Thanks George!

George,

I realize this is an old thread but what the hey? Video but no sound from CC through older Yamaha HRT-6130. Too old of unit to support HRC as stated in the thread? CC works on tv native speakers, done the factory reset. Still no sound. Any help would be much appreciated!
