Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Hi, I got an HT-S5100 7.1 CH Onkyo Home Theater System hooked up to my Panasonic Plasma. At the same time, my technician programmed my ONKYO remote control to control my DVD, CABLE and TUNER audio as well as drive the CABLE menu and channels. My cable is connected to my receiver via HDMI cable, not RCA jacks.
Here was my problem. One morning, I realized that my ONKYO receiver still controls my DVD and TUNER Audio - it utilizes my entire front and rear speakers when I am viewing DVDs and tuning in to the radio -- but when I watch a cable channel, my audio can only pick up from the internal speaker of my Panasonic Plasma --- my five speakers do not work! I tried to hack my receiver by connecting an RCA jack directly from the cable box to the ONKYO receiver - then it utilized my speakers - but the sound is not digital. I wanted my HDMI surround sound back!!
Is there any button which I have accidentally pressed which disabled my HDMI output to my Onkyo speakers?
Since you have the cable connected to the reciever thru the HDMI, you may have accidently changed the input source of the reciever from HDMI or digital to analog.
When you have the reciever set to listen to the cable, check the input mode and make sure it is set to use the HDMI or digital input and not the analog.
The rca jacks are analog, and they worked, so I think you have just solved your own problem without realizing it.
Let me know if this works and if so a good rating would be appreciated. Thanks and have a great day
