Thanks for the replies,
The laptop is outputting 1920x1080.. but if the output resolution is an issue shouldnt the sound still be coming through?
How does a pass through video option work? I havent seen anything like that on the menus or in the manual.
Ive been continuing my research and is it possible the issue is that i am sending HDMI into the receiver and trying to output via the component cables to the projector? Can a receiver not do that?
Even if that is the case, should the receiver not at least play the audio over the HDMI from the laptop?
Thanks again for the replies.
