OK guys --


I just received my new Sharp Aquos LC42D64U television today. I previously had a 32 inch Westinghouse that I had been using the following setup to get surround sound through my Xbox 360 -


HDMI cable from Xbox 360 to television

Digital optical audio cable from television to receiver


It worked fine!!


Now with this Sharp, I get no audio whatsoever! If I switch over to my regular cable TV, BOOM - audio! This said, I can't really tell which component is faulty, since I can get surround through the Digital optical audio cable when watching regular TV, but I can't when I switch to my Xbox 360 using HDMI, which worked before on a crappier TV!


Please HELP!


Thanks,


Shane H

Yep, lots of times the optical out on a TV is only for the TV's tuner to output sound to a receiver and won't pass any other input though. Probably the case with the Sharp.


In that case, you just need to run a seprate optical output from the 360 directly to the receiver. Unfortunatly, that means either buying MS's absurdly priced HDMI cable kit for the included optical dongle, or modifying your existing 360 A/V cable to fit in the port along with the HDMI pluged in above it.
