Good day all.
I just bought a Dynex 40" LCD tv from a big blue store with yellow tags.
I cannot get 5.1 DD from the optical out on the tv to the stereo, I am only able to get 2 channel audio
I have two HDMI devices, a Comcast box (DCX3400) and a Blue Ray player (Panasonic DMP BD60) connected to the TV.
The HDMI cables are Dynex cheapos from aforementioned store. The box for the HDMI cables say it does full 1080P
I have an optical cable going from the "digital optical out" on the TV to the "optical-in" on my Kenwood receiver (VR-407)
I am only getting 2 channel audio Via the optical cable to the receiver
I have tried two cables and two of the optical inputs on the stereo. No go
The optical inputs do work when connected to the optical outs of both devices.
The TV doesnt have very many sub options, the manual says it has an SPDIF option that you can set to DD....but the menu of the TV only shows PCM, RAW and Off.
I called the manufacture no help, they said it only sends 2 channel audio. (Then why have optical?). I didnt notice that the option for DD didnt show up in the menu until I was off the phone. Called the geek squad ( I bought the ext warranty) no go either. He said to call the manufacture.
I was hoping to send the 5.1 DD signal to the stereo but it doesnt appear that its working.
I tried the input 2580 thing no go.
Does anyone have any ideas?
