Hello, What is the model number off of the back of your TV please?

Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.

The reason I am asking is that the audio has to transmit back to the Denon- in most cases using an optical cable from the TV back to the receiver. The Denon does not automatically process audio from the HDMI Input.

Additionally, is the Denon "2100" an "AVR-X2100" please?

You will need either an "Optical" cable or RCA red and whites form the Audio Out on the TV to be connected to the Denon's "TV Audio" optical port in order to transfer the sound back to the Denon.
