No Audio Through HDMI
Afternoon folks! Here's hope someone can help me.
I have just installed a Denon AVR-S930H receiver in a 5.1 configuration, and all seemed OK. I am however having problems as the receiver is apparently not sending Audio along with Video via HDMI Out. Here is the configuration:
Receiver: Denon AVR-S930H
All connections are HDMI
Source: Apple TV 4K connected to HDMI 5
Bedroom TV1: HiSense 65H8C 4K TV connected to Monitor 1 HDMI out - all good here as the audio comes out of the regular room speakers connected to the receiver.
Bathroom TV2: Sony Bravia KDL32EX400 1080p TV connected BEHIND a Panasonic SCHTB10 Slim Sound Bar, itself connected to Monitor 2 HDMI out - No Audio from SoundBar.
The Panasonic SoundBar can decode both Dolby & DTS, so the HDMI output from the Receiver goes to it 1st, and then the SoundBar HDMI output goes to the Sony TV for Video Only.
Scenario 1: Connecting the Apple TV directly to the Panasonic SoundBar via HDMI allows for audio from the bar, as well as video to appear on the connected Sony TV. - HDMI Path that WORKS: Apple TV 4K => Panasonic SoundBar => Sony TV
Scenario 2: Connecting the Apple TV to HDMI 5 of the Denon receiver, and then connecting the Panasonic SoundBar & Sony TV through EITHER Monitor 1 or Monitor 2, there is NO SoundBar SOUND, just video! - HDMI Path that FAILS: Apple TV 4K => Denon => Panasonic SoundBar => Sony TV
I cannot seem to get the Denon Receiver to output sound though either HDMI Monitor 1 or 2 Outputs! Switching the SoundBar between them makes no difference. I tried to set HDMI audio to both TV and AVR in the Denon configuration, and same result, no Audio. See HDMI SETUP Screenshot Attached!
Do I have a bad receiver or is there a diferent setting I am missing in the Denon HDMI configuration to also output Audio?
The 2nd issue is that if the HiSense TV is on, and the SoundBar & Sony TV are powered off, the AppleTV 4K, HiSense TV and Receiver will output 4K video, and thats good. However, as soon as the SoundBar or the Sony TV which is only 1080P are turned on, the resolution drops to 1080P for BOTH TV's! Is there a way to keep them separated, as they are connected to Denon's HDMI Monitor 1 and 2 respectively? I know buying another 4K TV for the bathroom will likely solve this issue, but can't seem to find one as most 4K TV's are larger then 32".
Thank you in advance!
