Because I do not know what I am doing lol.
All I want is a more up to date speaker system, with a receiver. My problem is the only things I find are annoying speaker systems with a dvd player or bluray player, or those stupid soundbars.
It needs to have a few optical in, or hdmi. Idk.
My problem is I want something but do not know enough about the topic to narrow it down exactly. Hence the asking for help.
Everytime I try to learn about the topic, I get confused because some sites say one thing, and other sites say another.
I am sorry, I guess I am not explaining well enough. I do not know what more to explain what I would like.
I found this and it sort of helps.

I do not understand how hdmi receivers work...I didn't even know that was an option.
How does that even work? hdmi is audio and video so if you plug your hdmi into there how do you get video then?
Do you plug in hdmi and then the receiver has an external and you get another hdmi cable and plug it into the tv?
