SOURCE: (Pioneer PDP-4340HD Plasma with PDP-R04U

I don't have a direct solution but I am having the same problem when connecting (1) my Apple TV (2) my Blu-Ray player, etc. via HDMI. I also have a digital camera that puts out HDMI, and when I hook it up, I get the same story -- video only, no sound through the optical digital output of the TV receiver.

I am guessing that the HDMI inputs were an afterthought on this model, especially since the printed manual doesn't even show or mention the HDMI inputs at all! So my guess is that the TV's receiver does not convert the sound from the HDMI to the optical digital output. It does, however, send the amplified HDMI sound to the stereo speaker outputs on the monitor. It appears that only the digital tuner's 5.1 sound comes out on the optical digital output.

This is what I have observed, for what it's worth.

My Pioneer Plasma Display Model PDP-424mV must be set on a timer as it will turn off approximately 90 seconds after being turned on . I cannot find the "timer" menu selection. How do I fix this?


try looking on your remote, look for a sleep button and proceed to deactivate the sleep timer using the arrow buttons. if this is not the case, then perhaps your internal cpu is allowing the TV to start, then detecting a problem and forcing the tv to turn off again, though i don't see how it would be possible in this case. there are many others better suited to answer that question other than me, but the sleep button is a good start =)

5.1


Dear wayne,
Please locate audio input socket on your TV, Then Connect audio output of DVD recorder to this input socket. The optical output of TV goes to input of amp. Since the DVD recorder is connected to the TV and TV's out put connected to the Amp. Now the sound signals from tv and as well from DVD will be 5.1 surround from the amp.
If any case this does not solve your problem, please mail me the photo of the back side of TV's connections at my mail.

No digital to reciever??


This tv will only output the sound from a digital tv channel through the optical output when using the tv's digital tuner. So if you are connecting a DVD etc it will not output through the optical output on the tv. ONLY digital chanels through the tv's tuner will give you sound. Refer to the tv's owners manual for more info.
