Setting up my 2017 UHD Smart TV (MU630x)

I have my Directv DVR connected to a Multi Channel AV Receiver, then to my 2017 UHD Smart TV (MU630x). Works great, but when I switch to TV with the smart remote, I have to turn on the TV speakers, what do I have to do to still have my sound through my reciever? Can I eliminate this step?

Are there other devices connected to the television besides the AV receiver? Does the receiver support ARC?

Best way to do this would be to connect your DVR straight to TV with HDMI then make another connection to your receiver with ARC/HDMI port.   This way your TV speakers will only work in case when you're multiroom receiver is off.  This way no matter what input you select on TV you will hear what you see and nothing else.

No, just the AV receiver.

Here's the rear panel of my receiver. So, if DVR straight to TV, which input would I use here??

Somehow I'm unable to open the image you attached.   Maybe you can PM the image or post the model number of the receiver.

Its a Sony STR-DH820 Multi Channel AV Receiver.  See if attachment works.

When I look, it shows as a download, weird!

Connect "TV Out/ARC" from Sony to HDMI/ARC port on your TV.  You can use any remaining HDMI for your DirectV DVR.  I suggest you run initial setup wizard again after you hook up the cable.
