I am a relatively new user and am having issues correcting some audio issues with my current setup and would appreciate any help you guys can provide. I havea relative basic setup, LG 4k model LA9650, DIRECTV GENIE, ps3 (not very important) and a raspeberry pi all connected via hdmi into my onkyo tx-sr608.
Unfortunately I am only able to use a 4.1 setup. I would like to utilize the tv speakers for dialogue and receiver speakers for my surround. Within my receiver swttings I can select it to push tv speakers but I then get stereo for all of my surround speakers. Under hardware\hdmi in my receiver settings I have tried RIHD with audio rerurn channel on, this only seems to work with the raspberry and doesnt with directv. I have lip sync enabled on my receiver and tv (with bypass selected qhich seems to work with the raspebrry but not directv).
My goal is this; utilize my tv speakers for pushingnthe dialoge similar to a center speaker, but have the additional option for surround with my receiver when wanted. I do have toslink cables available as well.
I assume I am missing something basic but I have gone brain dead with this and am obviously not a pro, so any help is very appreciated. Please let me know if I need to provide any more info
