I just purchased a roku streaming stick HDMI. I'm suppose to plug it into the surround sound HDMI (in) and then plug another HDMI (out) to the TV. The problem is, the receiver only has 1 HDMI port (ou

I hear you. Don't modern, inexpensive products just tick you off? Here's the solution. You leave it plugged into the the TV in HDMI 2. Because the receiver only has an HDMI out connection, you will have to use the digital output from the TV(usually an Optical cable), and plug it into any input on the receiver that has an Optical input. When you switch to that input on the receiver, you should be set, however, if you still have no sound, most AV receivers have assignable inputs. You may have to go to the audio menu on the receiver, and reassign that particular input as digital, and not analog. If you need more assistance, it would be best to visit my website at and contact me there.Thank you.

Cannot get surround sound to work with Philips hts3106/f7 andonic tcp50g25. It works fine for Blue ray via the hdmi out of philips dvd/receiver, but not for xbox or cable etc (only works in stereo).

i have the same system. all you have to do is when you connect your xbox 360, press the surround button on the remote and then use the arrow buttons to change it to dolby music pro2 or multi channel audio. same goes with any device you connect. hope it helps. In my case the xbox is connected to the Tv via HDMI and bluray player is connected to xbox via compoent cable

Connect PS3 for playing/viewing blue-ray thru surround sound

I just finished setting up my system last night and was facing similar problems with sound/video from my PS3. The only option I could get working was to have the HDMI cable connected from the PS3 to the TV and then connect the Optical cable to the receiver for sound. I was under the impression that HDMI handles sound and video but for whatever reason the PS3 does not agree.

I have DTS sound and fantastic picture now through my PS3, hope this helps.

Connect PS3 for playing/viewing blue-ray thru surround sound

Connect the PS3 to your TV with the hdmi cable and to the surround sound system with a digital optical cable, then set your PS3 to output sound through the optical port (through the sound options menu) and you're good to go!
