First post. I've searched the forums and was unable to find a similar thread. I'm sure someone will directly link where I missed it, though. If that's the case, I apologize.
I own a Directv HR-23 HD receiver, a Sony STR-DG820 A/V receiver, and a Samsung PN50C550G1F Plasma TV.
The PS3 and HR23 are both connected to the Sony Receiver via HDMI. The A/V receiver is connected to the Samsung via HDMI as well.
The problem I am having is that the sound being output when watching Directv is only PCM/2.1. I have selected the Dolby Digital option on the HR23.
The funny thing is, when I turn off the TV, sound comes through at Dolby Digital. When using my PS3 that is connected to the AV receiver, there is no problem whatsoever.
Has anyone else had a similar problem? Thanks in advance for any assistance.
