I currently have a 4x4 HDMI matrix connected to two sharp and two sony TVs.
I also have two comcast boxes distributed over HDMI.
When I switch the Comcast box between the sony and sharp tv the sound drops on the Sharp TV-Specifically the Sharp displays the message that audio signal is not recognizable.
I then need to turn Comcast box off, change the HDMI audio setting from auto to L-PCM, the the sound returns. This change in the settings however is only temporary and when tvs are switched over the matrix, the same thing happens again.
How can I stop this? Is there a way to may these settings on the comcast box permanent? Am I missing something on the sharp tv that will make the tv recognize the audio? I would prefer not to purchase an EDID emulator like Gefen HDMI Detective plus.

Here is my equipment list:
Accell 4x4 HDMI Matrix
Sony 65w5100, 40w5100, Sharp 46se94u, 52BP80U
two motorola comcast boxes DCH 3200

Welcome to HDMI.. No real cheap easy solution besides using componet video matrix.

The DCH-3200 is junk. I have the same problem with it not saving my RGB/YCC settings; my DVI projector requires RGB, my TVs handle either. Whenever I make a change on my 4x4 HDMI switch, the 3200 reverts back to defaults. I'm sure that Comcast/TW/Moto did this so that you would have to get (and pay for) multiple boxes rather than using an HDMI switch.
