I recently purchased and installed the Avantree Bluetooth transmitter/receiver and Headphones.
Cable box (HDMI) to TV (HDMI)
TV (OPTICAL OUT) to Avantree (OPTICAL IN)
Avantree (OPTICAL OUT) to Bose Soundbar (OPTICAL IN) - Avantree says this is just a passive loop from in-to-out.
TV set to external speakers and PCM
No sound in headphones until I changed cable box Audio from HDMI to "Other"
Would also not work with Audio out set to "Dolby" on cable box.
Everything works, sound quality not bad for the price....just wondering what is the issue?
Its like the TV cannot convert the HDMI input into whatever the Avantree needs.
The weird thing is that the BOSE continued to work fine.
So....WTH is "other"?
Thanks...from an old guy.
