Hey everyone I just got the 65inch 900e. Had it for 1 week and very happy with. Issue im having is with my Panasonic BTT-790 blue-ray disc home theater sound system wont output 5.1.
I could get sound to come out of the HDMI devices plugged into my sound system but not the TV. So i factory reset the sound system. Selected ARC for audio input and the sound now plays from speakers when viewing TV content BUT only Front LEFT and RIGHT speakers. Other 3 speaker and sub wont output sound. I have redone easy setup to configure 5.1 and in test no sound comes from those speakers only FL and FR.
I have changed any setting i think could be stopping it working (one setting at a time). No fixes.
I read HDMI 1.4 cables are needed. I think the cable is. The sound system worked great with my old Panasonic plasma. I read you can do factory reset by holding power and open close on unit itself instead of in menus. Not tried it yet but skeptical it would have a different result
Is there settings in the TV itself i need to change to get 5.1 output from my sound system. I checked TV settings and nothing jumped out.
I would appreciate any help or if this is wrong place to post if anyone wanted to redirect me to more appropriate forums would be much obliged
EDIT 1) i will post in audio section as well
EDIT 2) I just discovered when i swap to tv content (free to air broad cast, netflix) the sound is actually outputting in 5.1 fine. The problem is actually that the sound system itself when i test the speakers only front two work in setup wizard. Also I put a blu ray in player and again only front two speakers worked??? Gotta be a setting???
