Hi folks - newbie here, wanting to ensure that I am doing this the right way.
I want to hear the surround sound, although the surround light on the unit is orange (supposed to be blue I think). I have been told by SONY that my TV does not support ARC, so I am somewhat unsure as to how best to connect my three components (TV, blue-ray and sound-bar).
I connected the optical cable, and ran one HDMI cable from the blue ray to the soundbar (HDMI 2 on TV), and another from the soundbar to the TV in HDMI 3.
I ran the auto setup as per instructions.
After some minor connection frustrations (I am very much a newbie) I now have picture and sound, but do not seem to be hearing the surround sound I was hoping for, although it is certainly far better than the TV speakers). Yes, I have turned the TV speakers off.
Should the surround indicator on the unit be blue, and not the orange I am currently seeing? I am just using the TV thus far for blu-rays and Netflix.
The blu-ay has only 1 HDMI connection (currently connected to the sound-bar), while the TV and the sound-bar have multiple inputs, so am I correct in having connected the HDMI from blu-ray to the 2200 sound-bar?
Thanks for any input folks!
