Wirelessley via Apple TV2. If your AVR has HDMI inputs then the video should pass through the output to the TV and the audio through your speaker set-up.

ATV2 supports DD 5.1 so although movies are 720p max which is fine, the audio is more than comfortable.
I just have the music on the amp set to Stereo because I have satellites and a sub and Direct mode won't cut it.
