Question about Sony STR-DG510 DTV Receiver

2 Answers

I am using an HDMI cable on my STR-DG710 and get no sound

My HDMI cable is running from my PS3 and my Verizon HD box and I get picture with no problem, but I get no sound. What do I need to do? It is going out to a projector for the video and then the speakers through the speaker wires. Thanks!

    Sony has determined the issue.

    If the video output device (projector) does not support sound over HDMI, or uses a dvi-d to HDMI converter, the receiver detects that the output device doesn't do sound so ignores the sound on the HDMI. Very poor design choice on Sony's part.

    I am still looking for a real solution, but a short term one is to run an optical cable for the device and set the sound to use optical instead of HDMI.

A lot of devices like PS3, HD DVD Players, Cable boxes, etc., require you to define on the setup menu if sound will be coming out of the HDMI cable or not. Most of these devices can be set to HDMI Auto, but not all of them do.

I currently have both my Blu-ray and HD DVD player outputting both video and sound through my HDMI into my STR-DG710. Both devices are setup to output sound through the HDMI.

But like the other person on here posted, it you have a DVI to HDMI cable, you won't be getting sound. The only device that will output sound from a DVI to HDMI are select computer graphics adapters like the GeForce 9800 GT series video cards, and even not all of those will have this feature.

Hope this helps.

You have to run the coaxial digital cord to run sound if fitted to the PS3 or the optical digital cord if that is the one fitted to the PS3. I have a DVD player and the latest dish and have tried all combos with HDMI cable except the optical cables to get sound,I just ordered the optical cables and am confident that will work cuz the manual tells you to hook them up.

It may be the top of set box.. Most times the sound and picture are auto detected by the set when HDMI is used. Both sound and video are carried in a HDMI cable but not with a S video cable. Try another HDMI cable *** dont buy the expensive one the tv don't care if they cost $125 or $25.

ok your tv does not come with the very best sound, you have to get a receiver 7.1 or you can use the optical wire , that's if the system you are using has that option.
