I have a Panny 110 BluRay player connected to my VT30 via HDMI, and to a 2-channel stereo pre-amp via analog outs. For some BluRay discs, I can hear the audio through my stereo just fine (so the wiring and set-up must be OK), but for many movies, I can only get audio through my TV speakers. Even stranger, I tried the BluRay version of Alien, selected director's cut version, and it starts with the director giving a brief talk, which played fine through my stereo, but when the movie started, it only played through the TV speakers.
I had no audio problems before getting my VT30 this past Friday. I used to have an 8-year-old DLP, and the wiring was the same except that I had an HDMI/DVI adapter on the HDMI wire going to the DLP. The audio always played through the stereo just fine.
I have gone through every set-up menu in the plasma and player, but cannot get the player to output audio through both the HDMI and analog outs (and turning off HDMI audio in the BluRay player menu did not help). Any suggestions? I have also posted in the 110 thread, and have emailed Panasonic.
Addendum: Both my HD-DVD player and my cable box (Fios) are connected to the VT30 via HDMI, and they both successfully send analog audio to my stereo pre-amp w/o any problems. Also, the BluRay player works fine for SD DVDs (audio to the VT30 and pre-amp simultaneously). It's just with BluRay discs that I can't get audio to the pre-amp.
