First post here and a bit of a newb, so please be kind.
I have just purchased a new Panasonic TC-P55UT50 plasma TV and am having difficulty integrating it into my other HT components. I also have the following:
• Panasonic SA-HT275 receiver
• Motorola 6200 STB
STB has no HDMI connections, only component connections.
Receiver has no HDMI connections, though it does have optical jacks.
TV has 2 HDMI jacks, component and optical jacks.
My problem is that I can get Dolby surround sound from STB to receiver when watching TV, but if I switch to the internet apps on the TV, I can only get sound out through the built in speakers. I did change the audio settings on the TV to send sound out to the receiver speakers, but still no dice.
Any thoughts or suggestions on the best way to get surround sound from the STB AND internet apps with the equipment I have? Or, do I need to upgrade my receiver and/or STB?
Thank you very much.
Oh, I also have a Harmony 880 remote for controlling everything.
