Yes! You can select the audio source from the receiver or remote buttons labeled blu-ray, game, cable/sat, etc. that match the HDMI inputs. For the tv alone (if you have a smart tv with apps like Netflix, Hulu,...) you can either return the tv audio signal to the receiver via optic audio cable or turn on ARC on your tv (if your tv supports Audio Return Channel) so the signal is returned through the same HDMI cable going into the tv. It's awesome!
