I just installed this STB, as a secondary setup, connected to a panny plasma. If I set the HDMI in pass-through there is no audio on my TV. Auto works fine. Any suggestions? Also, can I use the optical out for DD audio (to my non HDMI receiver) while having the HDMI connected directly to the TV - is the audio out on both simultaneously?
Any comments on the PQ of this box? To me the HD PQ seems worse than that from my other STB/DVR (a Motorola DC*3412), and far worse than when I received some of the HD channels directly on clear QAM on the panny plasma. Are there any settings that I may not be aware of such as hidden menus affecting PQ/HDMI, etc? All outputs formats are enabled ('Yes' in the menu) except for 1080p24 and 1080p30.
