Sorry if this has been asked before. I searched both this forum(not very effectively I think) as well as Google and found no solution. All I find is solutions to unrelated issues. I'd also like to apologize if this is the wrong place for this question. but Google brought me here via a different thread about a PS3 and an Onkyo 606
So, here's my problem.
I get no audio through TV during gameplay while the receiver is off. Same goes for a movie that is more than 2channel(5.1 etc). Now this issue hasn't always been. I used to be able to use both surround sound while the receiver was on, or simply power off the receiver and continue playing using the TV's speakers.
I still get sound through the TV while the receiver off for a few things, menu sounds, music, and even video so long as it's 2channel.
I don't know if things changed with an update or what. Not a recent FW update though, as this has been an issue for some time. I did have the receiver unhooked awhile back for, for a common repair. So I'm thinking that perhaps I'm missing a simple solution. Something like my settings being wrong somewhere along the line. Though I have tried set all my settings as they were before.
I have found that if I manually set the PS3 to 2channel only, it will pass the audio while the receiver is off. But I dont want to have to constantly adjust my PS3 audio setting every time, depending on whether I want to use surround or not. I did not have to do that in the past. I was able to select "HDMI Auto" thus enabling everything, and that was that. Receiver on = surround. Receiver off = TV's speakers
Thanks to any who can help
