I just purchased an AVR3311ci. I'm still learning the unit, but one immediate problem I've having is that the AVR is not sending the analog audio it is receiving from my HTPC (MythTV frontend) or the digital audio from my BD player to the flat-panel (Vizio VL320m) on HDMI-MONITOR-2. The HTPC is connected with DVI---->HDMI and analog audio. I have the BD connected via HDMI and SPDIF (coax), and the AVR input setup to take the audio from the SPDIF coax, because the Sony's menus seem to imply that the HDMI audio may be stereo only.
Both ways, I only hear sound directly from the speakers on the AVR. No sound on the VL320m. The BD player works fine sending its audio over HDMI to the VL320, but no sound from the TV when playing through the AVR3311ci.
Is this an EDID problem? Have I done something wrong?
EDIT: Found the AMP/TV select in the HDMI setup. This works to switch the BR player's audio from speakers to TV. Although I have to say I'm a little surprised at the either/or restriction there, given the digital source, it's tolerable. It would be nice if there was a button for it on the remote, though, as the menu settings is inconvenient to toggle and I generally want to use the AVR's speakers w/PJ on Monitor1 and built-in speakers w/TV on Monitor2.
However--I can't seem to send the analog audio coming into the AVR from the HTPC to the TV. When I switch to that source and attempt to toggle the setting it reverts to Amp. What gives? Will it not send analog audio over the HDMI connection?
