I was told I only get the true surround sound playing discs in the BD player, and to get the true surround for my 360 and comcast box that I would need a audio selector or a fiber optic splitter. Right now my BD player from the HTIB is HDMI to the TV and I have a fiber optic from the player to the TV as well.

I was checking out an audio selector on Amazon that allows up to three tos link/fibers to be hooked up to it. I was wondering if this would solve my problem and give me true surround on my 360 and while watching television on comcast.

I greatly apriciate any help and advice!

As long as your HDMI cable between TV and HTIB is 1.4 you won't need the Toslink cable. Just enable HDMI control and Audio Return Channel (ARC) on the HTIB and it will send surround audio from TV to theater. I'm using this setup with a KDL60-EX700 set.

Wanted to throw my hat in the ring regarding the E770W and DLNA streaming. So far it doesn't like WMP or TVersity, whereas my PS3 and LG TV both like it fine. I go through the network diagnostic option for servers and it fails saying "DLNA not supported". I brought up Wireshark on the DLNA server and it exchanging messages, but I don't know enough of the interface to do anything. I installed Serviio and it shows up, but I think I still need to play with its profiles some more. Another board suggested "Sony" profile for the E770W.

Update: Just saw this post on Sony forum that EX500 has no ARC so you will need the toslink cable. Sorry about that.

Has anyone been able to get additional speakers to work with this system, say Rocketfish wireless or something like that? I want to have an additional speaker for my deck and one for my basement. I know that S-air speakers are out there, but they seem to be lame based off of reviews. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.

Ok, I have skimmed thru these threads, but being a newb I cannot figure out what is the problem. I am hooking up the sony bvd-e770w to my samsung tv via hdmi. I also have direct tv hooked up to the same tv via hdmi. i only have sound thru this sony system if on a dvd or radio ( I have not hooked it up to the internet). Nothing I do seems to change it so I can hear my direct tv thru the speakers. any hints?
thanks in advance,
b

Hi bakon2, connect an optical cable or coaxial cable from directv to E770w "Optical Digital In" jack.

I have the optical audio cable hooked from DVR to E770w but on HD channels, I don't get any sound from the rear speakers. Any suggestions?

Hi johndingk2, check DVR audio menu is set to output Dolby Digital. Also note not all HD programming are DD 5.1, some are 2.0 stereo. The 2.0 stereo you can use ProLogic II as the listening mode.

It turned out that the amp for the rears had lost its signal. Just rebooted everything and now it is fine.

Hello guys, need some help with the audio return channel, I have the HTiB plugged to the HDMI 1 of the TV using a 1.4 HDMI cable, my PS3(80GB fat) to port 4 of the TV using a 1.3 HDMI cable, the PS3 sound set it up to output the audio thru HDMI, HDMI control is enabled on both devices (audio return in "auto" HTiB) but I can't get any audio when using the PS3 or normal cable channels, what I'm doing wrong? THERE'S NO AUDIO RETURN FROM THE TV THRU HDMI TO THE HTIB DO I NEED A SLIM PS3? THE TV SHOULD OUTPUT AUDIO OF REGULAR CABLE CHANNELS THRU HDMI TO THE HTIB?

The post I quoted was from a Sony Moderator. To confirm check the spec section of owners manual. If ARC not listed anywhere then prob not equipped.

im having trouble with me rear receiver. the green light goes very dim and speakers do not work at all. this happens almost everyday!! can someone help!! i have read about the freq. on settings A, B, and C and to off set with my wireless router but problems are still occurring. does any one have a solution?
post #195 of 195
If the green light is on but dim seems to be a power problem to me. Try unplugging it for 10-15min and then plugging it back in. Make sure the card is seated in the back, speakers are fully connected, that the power outlet isn't damaged or defective.
