I have some questions concerning connecting a Onkyo NR609 to a Panasonic TCP65VT30 plasma tv. If I run the HDMI connections from my source equipment (i.e., Satellite receiver, Blu Ray player, PS3, etc.) direct into the hdmi inputs of the Onkyo TX-NR609 Receiver and run HDMI out from the "HDMI Out" from the NR609 to the "HDMI 1 -ARC (Audio Return Channel)" on the Panasonic TCP65VT30, I can receive video and all receiver supported audio formats by changing to the corresponding input on the NR609 Receiver (example - I have the Directv Sat receiver connected to the "Sat/Cbl" HDMI input and can see and hear the video and audion output by pressing "Sat/Cbl" button on the NR609.
However, if I connect any of the source components directly into the HDMI inputs on the TV (I still have the HDMI - ARC Input 1 on Panny connected to the HDMI Out input on the receiver) and the digital out from the Panny connected to the digital in input on the NR609, I can't select the audio formats from the receiver nor can I receive DD, DTS, or any of the other audio supported by the reciever that I get when I plug the components directly into the appropriate HDMI Inputs on the receiver.
Some one please help. I want to be able to plug directly into the Panny's HDMI inputs and receive the audio formats.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
