Question about Sony STR-DG520 Receiver
I have my HDMI Satellite receiver connected to the BD HDMI port and my HDMI xbox 360 connected to the DVD HDMI port. I have an HDMI cable connected to HDMI out on the receiver to the TV. Even though HDMI transmits both audio and video I can not get any sound at all through the receiver for either component. When I try to adjust the receiver I get the "Unlock" message not sure what this means as there is no reference to unlocking anything in the manual. How do I get sound out of the Satellite AND the xbox 360 through the receiver? Also when I push the Input Mode button I get the message "Not Used" I also can't find reference to this message. Please help
The HDMI inputs are pass through inputs only. The reciever cannot recieve any sound signals through the HDMI's. The reciever acts as a selector switch for the HDMI inputs. Whatever input you have selected on the reciever is the one that is being sent through the output to your TV. The "unlock" display shows when there is no sound signal sent to the reciever. There is no code to unlock. This is the reciever's way of telling you that there is no sound being sent to it from that input. Since there is no sound being processed from the HDMI's, you need to hook up an additional audio cable from the device to the reciever (preferrably an optical cable). When the reciever recieves an audio signal, it will then "unlock" and you will get sound. The only purpose for the HDMI jacks on this reciever is to give you a bonus HDMI jack so you only have to use one on your TV. I know it is confusing. I had to look into this problem myself, so I'm happy to help. Higher end recievers will actually recieve and process sound signals from the HDMI's.
