I've just bought one of these - Samsung UE55F6800. After initial delight, it's not really until after a few days that you start noticing little glitches - and even a TV as mighty as this one has...

That's what I have been doing, but I thought I would get better sound if it went through an AV. Am I right in thinking the TV prcoesses the sound if the HDD is plugged directly into it?
