Reason being, is because an HDMI passing through a receiver, through another HDMI cable sent to the TV can raise input lag. On my receiver, when using this set up there's noticable audio lag. To correct this on my Bluray player, i just send HDMI(for picture) to my HDTV, and use a Digital Coaxial audio cable(capable of DTS 5.1, same deal as Optical but it doesn't support 96hz HD sound Vs. HDMI) straight to my receiver. The Wii U doesn't even have an optical input....bummer. Nintendo wanted to make everything basic, simple and easy. Less fuss, which i totaly understand, but still. You can possibly fix your lag issue and get audio from your receiver by using the component cables made for the Wii, but sold seperately. It's what I do to get 1080p on the TV (component cables plugged directly into the TV) and no lag through my receiver (Audio plugged directly into the receiver). Unfortunately, no true surround sound in this mode for me without the optical out or buying a new receiver which doesn't have this issue. Component cables don't provide 1080p, only HDMI does. You are only getting 480p. I'm pretty sure component is capable of 1080'i', even so HDMI at least on my HDTV provides a crisper/sharper picture in both 720 & 1080, and the picture looks a smidge brighter and more colorful, but my eyes may be tricking me. Yeah, you could get an AV extension cable and use the Component cables Red & White Audio cables and hook them straight to your receiver but then you're limmited to Dolby Pro Logic II. But that would probably be ok with me as long as i'm getting HDMI for pq, but again you can't use one specific cable for the picture and the other for audio like you could on the PS3. bummer!
