I currently have a ps3 and an xbox360 connected via hdmi to my Samsung 46ln630 hdtv. From the hdtv, I have an optical cable connected to my Logitech Z-5500s. My problem lies in that when I have the optical cable going directly from the ps3/xbox360 to the Z-5500s, it outputs the audio in the correct format of the source, as in dts or dolby digital, but when I have the optical cable running from the hdtv to the Z-5500s (my current setup), I no longer get the dts or dolby digital. I only get pro logic movie ll, pro logic music ll, stereo, and stereo x2, which results in a loss of audio quality.
Is it b/c the hdtv interferes somehow with the audio and if so, is there a switch or reciever or something I can use that will decode the audio properly so that I don't lose any audio quality.
Is there a good priced hdmi audio/video splitter out that would not down sample the audio or video when running the optical cable to the Z-5500s and the hdmi to the hdtv?
