Playbar no longer working from TV with AV receiver

My Playbar had been working without issue from my TV. However, I added an AV receiver (Yamaha TSR-5810) to accommodate several devices, but now the Playbar no longer receives sound from the TV. Am I hosed or is there some configuration that I am missing here?

I managed to find settings in the receiver to turn off the HDMI control which allowed audio to be passed back to the TV (and subsequently the Playbar), but the audio is only coming through as stereo to the Playbar.
There's likely another setting on the A/V receiver where you set the kind of signal that gets sent out via HDMI to the TV. Check the manual.
