Well, after a week with this fantastic set, everything seems to be working as it should; now I have a question re: sound output.
I have a pioneer elite sc 25 reciever; it does not support hdmi 1.4 nor does it upscale video to 4k. Its only 2 years old, but I bought it one year too soon for it to have those 2 features I could use now..
Anyways, I have the sony media player, the sony bluray bdps790. Also using a HD antenna to get about 40 local digital stations in chicago. Additionally I have 2 nas boxes on my home network, and am able to stream to the tv without any issue, and in fantastic quality....now, here is my question.
When I use the TV's built in DLNA capabilities, I can stream from my media servers fantastic video, but the audio is coming through a TOSlink cable that I connected to the AVR from the TV.
I would like to somehow, be able to listen to the audio though an HDMI output; it seems like the TOSlionk cable doesnt stream 7.1, and dts hd mastered properly. I also get the "antenna" tv sound through this cable.
Is there anyway to get "output" from the tv, as its streaming from my NAS boxes, or my antenna, through an HDMI output?
I am using the hdmi 1 on the tv for my DishNetwork Service, I am using HDMI 4 for the media server, and I am using HDMI2 for the BluRay player. HDMI3 is open, but I dont know if I can somehow use it to get the audio signal from the media server or the antenna.
If I run the media server through the BluRay player, then, the audio ouputs perfectly, and of course the video is great as well, but I dont want to have to use the BluRay player to watch and listen to the streaming media, since the TV has that ability natively..
Thanks to anyone with any suggestions!
