the TX-SR508 is connected to the HTPC using an audio Toslink Cable and an HDMI to DVI Cable. The TV is connected by HDMI to the TX-SR508
The cables and connections are verified as working and functional
the source is verified as working (audio card/video card)
with the source playing a sample (movie music whatever) I'm able to either have video only...unless i disconnect the hdmi from the HTPC...then i lose picture and gain audio.
This is a brand new setup (less than a month) and it was working for the first 2 weeks without any configuration...and now for whatever reason i feel as though a setting must be "checked" or "unchecked" however after "playing" with it i'm in no better shape than when i started.
I've assigned corresponding HDMI ports to the correct Optic Ports...i've rotated from all of them...with the situation getting no better than "one or the other"
I have changed optic ports as well and of course reassigned that port to the new hdmi port.
as a last resort i consulted the owner's manual...however nothing is clearly stated as to how to set up what i need in this situation
the result i'm looking to achieve is to use the optic port as my audio and the hdmi for my video...at the same time.
if anyone knows how to achieve this or even have an idea about how to do so I would be greatly appreciative thank you.
Hi mcantrell, with HDMI Input and Digital Audio Input menu assigned correctly (to the same Input Selector name for your HTPC). Try selecting your input source, press "Receiver" then "Audio" button on the remote and select OPT under "Audio Selector".
