New X1 box connection to Home Theatre

I just received a new X1 dvr received and am trying to connect it to an older Sony DAV-IS10 home theatre system.

I cannot figure out how to get the audio from the xfinity box into the Sony box. Any help is appreciated.

You’ll have to start with the connections available on the equipment that you have.

current technology provides digital audio using the regular HDMI cables. test by connecting directly to TV via HDMI and verify audio is working. if the TV and receiver have an ARC enabled HDMI port, connect an HDMI cable between the TV and receiver ARC ports to 'return' the audio to the receiver.
