Question about Sony STR-DE698 Receiver
I have a Sony TV 46" wega and a Sony AV Receiver HT-DDW790 and a scientific atlanta cable box. I connected the cable box to the tv using hdmi and then optical out of the tv to the receiver. However this produces a PCM 48 issue where i am not getting a full 5.1 surround sound.
I originally had it set up with HDMI from the cable box to the TV and optical out of the cable box to the receiver. This works if i go into settings of the cable box and change the audio out to dolby digital. however when i shut everything off and turn everything back on, the settings default back to HDMI audio out.
does anyone know how to help?
As long as you continue to have both HDMI and optical outputs connected at same time from the cable box, it will probably always choose the default as HDMI. If you do not want to change any connections then the best thing to do in this case is to always leave the cable box turned on. Otherwise, disconnect the HDMI and connect it to the TV by component video.
