I have hooked up an older LG DVD Player with an HDM I cable to a new Vizio TV. I have picture but no sound

HDMI transmits audio using a digital format. Access the menu on the Visio TV and make sure that the HDMI input audio is set to ON or PCM. Also access the menu of your DVD player and make sure the audio output is set for HDMI Audio and PCM as well. These setting should ensure that the audio is passed over HDMI from your DVD to your TV.

Pcm 48 khz

mine does the same thing. I found a pdf of the manual and it said this in the troubleshooting section:
""PCM--kHz" appears on the display. , The sampling frequency is more than 48 kHz. Change the DVD setting to 48 kHz."
I have my seiki tv hooked into the dvd/ld input through a coaxial cable, and I don't think my tv has a setting to change the sampling frequency. so I have no idea what to do. any help would be great!

RX-V465 Yamaha Reciver we can get picture but no sound w/PS3

Check HDMI Sound settings:
Enter Setup menu via remote, then Func. Setup / HDMI / Audio. You can choose from Amp (sound will be played via Yamaha), TV (sound will go straight via HDMI out to your TV and not play on Yamaha) and Amp+TV (Yamaha will play the sound and also pass it to the TV).
Also what is your source? DVD or some network player? For example Yamaha cannot decode audio in AAC or other computer formats, so be sure to change the audio settings of your player to output PCM and not raw/bitstream.

42in insignia tv im trying to watch a movie and there is no sound how do i get it on

Try going into the Audio Settings and set the digital audio to PCM.

If the movie you are trying to watch is the only movie this happens with, try pressing the audio button on the DVD remote to change the audio stream.

You should also set yout DVD players audio output to PCM as well.

Hope this helps!

I cannot get sound from a sony BDS350 (Blue ray

This must be configuration problem on the BD player. In this case receiver just outputs the signal it receives digitally. If it displayes PCM 2ch, that means it receives only 2 channel audio from BD player.
You can try to configure the BD player not to decode audio and to output the RAW stream over coax cable to the receiver. Then the receiver should get raw Dolby Digital encoded data and be able to decode it into 5.1 channels. It should also display Dolby D instead of PCM in such case.

No surround sound from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100. Video OK

Unfortunately only the higher end Onkyo Reciever pass audio over HDMI for sound. 605,705,805,905 exc. Your reciever will carry Video over HDMI but you will need a digital optical cable for sound.

PCM vs Dolby Digital

OK, I just figured this out. Go to the audio options in your DVD player and switch from pcm to bitstream. Now my movies sound right again.

PCM 2.0

I had the same problem with my 321 system. The fix is in the cable box settings. You want to change the Digital Out on the cable choices were HDMI....Dolby Digital..and None. Choose Dolby Digital and it will show up on your Bose 321 display. I also have my cable box connected to my bose system via optical digital cable...and a digital coaxel cable from my dvr to my bose. Change that output setting on my cable box took care of the PCM 2.0 problem for me.

Digital optical from DVD player produces no audio

Hi, It sounds like your receiver is still looking for audio on the coaxial connection, rather than the optical.

1. Make sure the optical connection is between your DVD player and the LD/DVD Optical In on the back of your receiver.
2. If you have a monitor connected to the receiver to show the on-screen display, click Setup from the main menu, click Input Mode, then, next to LD/DVD choose Optical. It may be set to coaxial, analog or auto.

Alternatively, choose the input source on the front of your receiver (LD/DVD), then press Input Mode button (bottom right, near the input selector) till it displays Digital Optical.

If all else fails, reset the receiver by:
1. Turn off the receiver
2. Hold down DISPLAY and PANEL UP/DOWN buttons and press power.
3. All Clear should appear on the screen.

Use caution, however, as this will erase all the settings in your receiver.
