From the review I saw on CNet it said that many HDTV's downmix audio to stereo when you use the optical connection.
Any help would be appreciated. Thx.
I have just received a similar Sharp TV (LC-70LE550U) and my sound bar is a Yamaha (YSP-2200) with 3 HDMI in and one out. I have a PS4, a cable box and a computer all with HDMI out. With the TV I had before, I would connect my 3 HDMI components to the TV and the digital audio out from the TV to the sound bar and that worked fine. Now it does not work. :(
Since I have so many inputs on the sound bar my next attempt should be to get my 3 HDMI components into the sound bar inputs and connect the sound bar HDMI output to the TV (and do away with the digital audio cable all together) right?
I'm missing one HDMI cable so that is why I'd rather ask before heading out to buy more cables.
