Question about Onkyo HTR500 Receiver
Will not switch to dolby digital mode
You must use optical sound wire in order to reprduce dolby digital......You should have 2inputs on the back for this......plus the signal must be broadcasted in dolby digital.Such as HBO,SHOWTIME....they will tell you before the show comes on whether or not the movie or event is being broadcasted in dolby digital.Your unit will automatically change to dolbly digital once the show or event starts.Just make sure your input on video1,2,or3 is set to optical1 or 2.Just press the "Audio Sel" on the remote to change the audio source.But make sure the optical wire is connected first.....And just incase,make sure you are sending a dolby digital source to the unit from the sat reciever,cable box,playstation2.....make sure the dolby digital/optical option is on.You can find out what audio options you have in the menu screen.........or the redneck way.look on the back of the sat reciever/cablebox/playstaion2 ect...for a red laser light comming from these units.........i hope tht helps.
