I got the LG BH6420P and here are the specs (below).
It actually sounds great with a blu-ray in and even sounds pretty good when playing movies off a USB, but when I go to optical in and play sound from the TV....the volume is low and the quality is not very good. Anyone able to tell me what I can do to fix this?
Dont feed optical audio "from" the TV, get it direct from the source
Your Rogers cable box should be connected directly to your HTIB receiver for the best audio via Optical for Dolby Digital 5.1, send only video via HDMI or Component Video to your TV
There will likely be a sub menu for your Rogers box to adjust video/audio output settings if necessary.
If your currently sending audio and video to the TV from the cable box, then routing the audio back to the receiver via optical, that would explain the difference in audio levels.
The HTIB is getting audio direct from the source when using DVD, Bluray or USB, not through the TV right? So why not do the same for your cable signal?
From your manual:
(if you still need TV audio without the use of your HTIB speakers, you can likely run a pair of L&R 2.0 RCA audio jacks from your Rogers box to the TV's L&R audio inputs.)
It makes very little sense to send 5.1 audio to a TV with just two speakers.
