Hey Guys, just received my new 5020 last week and it is awesome. Totally blown away, and that is before doing any sort of calibration...but that is coming. Anyway, I have one issue that I did not anticipate having and I hope you all can help me sort it out. It is an audio pass through issue. I apologize in advance if this issue has been addressed elsewhere on the forum. If it has, I cannot find it so a link to it would be appreciated. Issue follows:
When I ordered the TV my plan was to run HDMI from my DTV box, Panny blu-ray, and Denon DVD with the digital optical out on the 5020 then running to my Outlaw Model 1050 AVR. My intention was to pass the DD and DTS bitstreams thrrough the 5020 to the AVR which would result in only one digital connection to my AVR, freeing up the other two for my Xbox and LD player (yes, I have an old LD player with the RF modulator). Problem is, I get nothing from the 5020 when I do this.
I get sound out of the 5020 from all of my HDMI sources into the 5020 (i made sure all of my sources were passing audio), but nothing from the optical out.
My AVR shows that it is receiving a signal, but it is registering PCM and pro-logic (with no sound)--not DD or DTS. I have verified that all of my sources and the 5020 are set to output bitstream and not PCM. Am I just out of luck? Is the 5020 incapable of doing what I want it to do?
As of now I have my digital outputs from my DVD, Bluray, and Sat running to the AVR and the dig outs for my Xbox and LD unplugged. Totally sucks. Any help would be appreciated.
