i have a LG DR787T dvd player hooked to a sanyo dp50740 plasma tv via hdmi. the tv has a digital out but will not pass 5.1 from the dvds hdmi through the digital out. so i ran a seperate optical cable from the dvd player to my digital decoder. still only getting 2 ch audio. played with settings to no avail. finally tried disconnecting the hdmi from the dvd player while leaving the optical cable hooked up. magically dolby digital works. i can now plug the hdmi back in and maintain 5.1 audio for the rest of the movie. the moment i stop the dvd for any reason i will lose the 5.1 ch audio and it will rsort back to 2ch stereo unless i sht everything off, disconect the hdmi from the dvd player, start the movie, then plug the hdmi back in and the turn on the tv. not really praticlle to go through all that tvery time you want to watch a dvd. do all dvd players act like this or is it just a freak thing with the lg that i have. i dont mind getting another dvd player but want to make sure it doesnt do the same thng.
