I got another HDMI cable, got it hooked up and still only have sound through the front speakers. I have cycled through the settings, turned up and down the surround channels, went through the audio options on the Blu-ray player and still no surround...I talked to a best buy person and was told I need to also upgrade my subwoofer. I'm not sure if that is a reason fro the surround not working, can't imagine it is.
The HDMI cable I originally had has gold connections and the one I bought today has silver or non-gold connections. I know there is a difference in the connections but not enough to not make the surround not work. I am wondering though because of the two HDMI's, it seems that I am losing some video quality. The blu-ray looked very crisp hooked up to the tv, now through the receiver it seems to have lost a bit.
Any other advice on getting the surround to work would be helpful.
Thanks in advance
