I'm admitting ahead of time I'm a total noob, so please go easy...
My questions are: (1) I just received a Sony DAV-HDX501W HTIB with Wireless Surround speaker kit. My problem is no sound comes out of the wireless surround speakers unless I am playing a DVD from the Sony HTIB unit.
I have the following setup:
Westinghouse TX-42F430S LCD TV
Xbox 360 Premium w/ External HD-DVD Drive (Using Component not HDMI)
Dish Network 622 HD-DVR (Using HDMI)
I have the Dish 622 connected to the TV via HDMI
I have the Xbox connected to the TV via Component
I have audio out going from the TV to the Sony HTIB in the TV Input via A/V jacks.
When I run the calibration tests on the Sony HTIB, the wireless surround speakers work fine. When I play DVDs from the Sony unit the speakers work fine. BUT, from any other input (although, they all come from the TV to the Sony) I do not get audio from the rear wireless surround speakers (audio is fine on all other speakers).
My second ?, not as important - is: I have my computer attached to the TV through an HDMI port using a DVI to HDMI cable. Computer has 7900GS with DVI out. Computer also only has RCA Audio out. Is there any way to get sound from the computer when it is connected to the TV? There is an RCA jack on the TV (attached to VGA input) but when I select HDMI input as the input source, the sound does not work. Also, when plugged into the TV, the computer says there are no speakers connected. Is there any way to get it to play through the Sony HTIB?
Sorry for the super long post and if it's too many ?'s in one I apologize in advance. Any help on these issues would be much appreciated.
