Hello, looking for some help with my new DMP-BDT360. Picked it up from Best buy today...$119.00 as mentioned above(Thanks for that
I have a VIZIO JV50P HDTV with the built in Surround sound.
I know from past experience that the Vizio will not decode 5.1 via the HDMI input. I have been running my components(DVD, Apple TV, XBOX) using HDMI for video and Optical Audio for sound. This allows the TV to play the 5.1.
I hooked up my BDT360 the same way(the main reason I bought this model was the optical output)
The first BR disc I played was an Extras disc from a 9 disc Star-wars set. it played perfectly, the 5.1 indicator on front of the TV lit up (indicating 5.1 is being decoded and played)
I then tried Disc 1 of the set and during the Menu portion the 5.1 was working. As soon as i played the actual movie, the 5.1 turned off.
The same thing happened with two other BR movies.
I have tried every combination of audio setting I can think of... no joy...
When I go through the sound options while the BR is playing, the 5.1 comes on in every other language, just not English...
One combination of settings actually had the TV indicating 5.1 working but no sound comes out.
... When I play a DVD on this player, 5.1 works perfectly.
So yeah, that's it in a very large nutshell, any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
