Question about Sony HT-CT100 Theater System
I have a new Sony HTC-100 Sound Bar, and I love the way the thing sounds. The unit receives 3 HDMI signals and outputs them to my TV via one HDMI out.
Now comes the problem. I have a Macbook Pro that comes with a DVI port and an Optical port. I have the optical cable, and I also have a DVI to HDMI cable. Whenever I plug in the MBP optical cable into the optical port labeled "DVD" on the back of the HTC, I get sound from my MBP. But if I go and plug in the DVI-HDMI Cable (the HDMI end of course) to the HTC port labeled "DVD" then I get the picture but lose the sound.
Is there any way to tell the unit that I want video only through the HDMI but sound through the optical? Any help is much appreciated!
On the Sony The HDMI takes "priority" over all others, that's why you loose audio. If you run your DVI/HDMI to the TV and optical to the soundbar that would fix your issue. If your TV does not have Multiple HDMI inputs, you can get a DVI/Component adapter for your MBP then run it to the TV, or, If you have to have HDMI just to have HDMI, you can get a 2:1 HDMI switch and still have optical to your soundbar. Make sense? If youneed more help, just post a comment and I'll help some more.
