Picked up this little gem as a AV starter project. Have a few questions. Setup is:
Now I have my HDMI from the Xbox connected directly to the TV since the 363 receiver only passes video and not sound. What exactly is the purpose of connecting a device to the receiver via HDMI and then HDMI from the receiver to the TV? Manual only states what I mentioned above.
My audio from my Xbox is connected via digital optical (TOSlink) so that I can get the best sound. The only problem I am having is that I can only get sound from FR, FL, and Sub speakers. Nothing from center or rear speakers. The only way to get sound from all speakers is to change the setting to 5 channel stereo and I still get zero sound from the center speaker. All speakers work and all connections are good.
I would like to be able to use the Dolby Digital setting on the receiver. Any and all advice would help. I have done quit a bit of research online and have read the manual several times, but I am only human.
