I have a TV which is a panel only (no speakers) & I currently get sound from my PS3, Sky HD & Apple TV using optical connections to my bluray/amp all in one unit.

The amp unit doesn't allow HDMI sound & I notice the Wii U only comes with a HDMI cable.

Is there any way I can get the picture to go through my TV using HDMI & get the audio using either optical or the red/white connectors?

Only if your TV has audio out connections to pass through the sound from HDMI.
Most TVs however only passthrough 2 channel sound so 5.1 surround would be a no no.
The good news though is that I'm pretty sure you may be able to use a Wii component cable to connect to the TV as the WiiU also has the standard Wii connection too so you will be able to use the audio cables from that.

Thanks. It looks like the component cable will be the way I'll need to go
