Brand new to soundbars and have a problem.
I recently bought a Panny S60 series plasma and was unhappy with the tv sound so I went yesterday and bought the LG3530 SB. I'm feeding the tv from a DirecTV Genie via HDMI, then to the LG using the optical out, the only connection that the LG offers.
The LG sounds fine and the subwoofer plays. It supposedly can decode DD and DTS but when I put on a recorded movie from HBO that says broadcast in DD5.1, the LG INFO says PCM2 0.0.
I've tried both HDMI inputs on the tv, Turned the Genie DD on and off and changed HDMI cables and nothing helps.
The Genie doesn't have a toslink optical output but does have a coax, or I would go directly to the LG, bypassing the tv.
Any help would be really appreciated.
