Please help me guys. First post!
Just hooked up everything:
-Samsung HT-AS720 (AV Reciever).
-Samsung BD-P1400 player (BD player).
-Samsung 5265 (LCD TV).
-DirecTV HR21-700 (HD-DVR, Black shiny with blue lights, oooh nice …matches the other gear!).
I've got the BluRay and the DVR into the AS720 via HDMI. Then, one HDMI from the AS720 out to the TV. That’s it.
Picture is amazing. Everything cool. Except… When I play a BluRay movie, I get no sound out of the rear speakers. The “test tone” of the AS720 works (I can hear the rear speakers)—However the test tone does not work when I do it from the BD-P1400 (no tone from rear speakers).
I’ve tried switching from bitstream and PCM, I’ve tried many different discs (I’ve got about ten BD’s here to play with) I’ve tried normal 5.1, PCM 5.1 and DTS HD. No sound from rear speakers. If I pop in a normal music CD, no problem, I get rear speaker sound.
I’ve read all the posts and searched the threads. Sorry if I’m missing something obvious. What the hell am I doing wrong?
Just want to make sure I have this all set up correct. I’m doing for my parents, and they don’t need a challenge when they drop in a movie. Thanks.
p.s. Everything is connected via HDMI 1.3 cables.
