All:

Setup:

I have Beolab 1 as front speakers, Beolab 7.1 as center, Beolab 2 as sub and Beolab 6000 and 4000 as rear speaker in 7.1 setup connected to a Samsung KS8000 65" SUHD TV 

Question:

With recent 4k resolution in video processing, I am inclined towards using my ONKYO receiver ( details at https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004V8KWQO/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 )

for video processing and relying on the Beosystem 3 for just the Audio.

Is this possible, if so what would be the best way to accomplish this. I have HDMI out in my ONKYO - see image below

Good point on skipping the Onkyo for video completely - However, the ONKYO has a 4k upscaling I could potentially benefit and also the fact that Onkyo provides upto 7 HDMI inputs.

If I use the Toslink I guess I still get the audio signal processing from Beosystem 3 into the beolabs - sounds like it may work.

I would like to hear from the other users who are doing something similar by using the Beosystem for only the sound processing

Why would you use the Onkyo? Can't you just connect the HDMI inputs directly in the TV?

 

Probably you have a digital out (SPDIF/Toslink) in your TV that you could connect in the BS3...
