Hi everybody, here is a question which is a variation on this theme.
I finally got my new Cable/HD/DVR box and hooked it up yesterday.
I had bought an HDMI switchbox so that I could have the cable box and DVD player hooked up to the TV via a SINGLE HDMI cable. The reason being that my TV is on a rolling stand and I want minimal wires crossing the floor.
The TV works pretty much OK when hooked directly to the cable box (Scientific Atlantic 8300HD), but when I run it through the HDMI switchbox, there is NO SOUND!
I called Cox Cable tech support here in San Diego, the guy suggested powering down then back up in this order -- switchbox, cable box, tv.
Still no sound when I do it that way!
Why does running it through the HDMI switchbox (purchased from Monoprice) lose all my sound?
Is there any fix for this? If not I will just swap out the HDMI cable from box to DVD player when I want to watch a movie, just trying to make the setup a little more civilized.
THANKS! ! !
