So here is the deal..I moved into a home that had a home theater. I am bringing in my receiver because and trying to hook everything up but am getting nothing.
These are the details:
Projector that has an HDMI in connection available but no HDMI was snaked in the walls. It has Component cables plugged in the back. I have the components plugged in the receiver as Component Out to Monitor.
Then I'm trying to plug in a DirecTV HD reciever and a PS3. I am plugging both of those in with Components in the back of the Receiver as Component In 1 and 2. For audio, I'm trying to use the Optical cables but I can't get any Audio. The only way I can get audio is if I use the stereo Red and White cables.
For the Optical cables, I have been plugging them in as Optical In 1 and 2 to the back of the receiver. The receiver is a Denon AVR1910.
Any idea why I'm not getting any sound? I can get video but no audio...if I change it to the stereo cables though, I can get both video and audio. Ideally I would love if an HDMI cable could be snaked in the walls and just plug that into the projector from the receiver but that might be very costly.
