Question about Philips DVP5982
The Philips DVP5982 has an odd menu setup for the HDMI sound.
If you get sound from the analog outputs from the unit, but no sound when you use the HDMI output, use this procedure to see if you can restore it:
On the remote control, press Setup.
- Right cursor to the Audio Setup Page
- Go down to Digital Audio Setup
-Right cursor, to get to the screen that shows
HDMI Audio Setup
Try to go up to the Digital Output setting- if you can't , and instead it shows only HDMI Audio Setup with the "On" highlighted in blue, this is the quirk:
Go into the HDMI Audio Setup, and select "Off", and press Enter, so it's highlighted in blue.
Now it should let you go into the Digital Output menu selection, where you may find it to be on the "Off" setting.
Select "All", and then you can go back to the HDMI Audio Setup and set it to On again, and it should now output sound from the HDMI again.
For some reason, they decided to lock out the Digital Output settings menu when the HDMI Audio is On- go figure.
So you need to turn off the HDMI sound before you turn the sound on.. ;)

I had this problem on my pc, it turned out to be a driver conflict between mobo and graphics card. i uninstalled both drivers and reinstalled nvidia drivers and i finally have sound via hdmi.

I had the same problem, downloaded the latest firmware from Philips web site and the sound came back. So, just try to upgrade your player's firmware. Make sure you follow all steps described by Philips during upgrade.
