...I got the Z-VOX 555 pedestal soundbar today and hooked it up using the optical audio out jack under the HDMI inputs of the TV. Problem is I can't seem to find a setting that allows me to "tell" the TV that I'm using an external sound system and to disable the built-in speakers. I'm thinking that there has to be a way and that I'm missing something. Can anyone give me a step-by-step procedure to follow to mute the onboard speakers. As it is the sound output is about a half second out of sync between the built-in speakers and the external soundbar.
Any help appreciated.
I feel strongly both ways!
