Computer to TV wireless- no sound through home receiver

by tlaura21 / January 29, 2010 12:27 AM PST

I recently purchased a Samsung Lan for my Samsung LED 8000series TV for wireless movie downloading. I receive the picture great but the sound is only transmitted through my TV speakers and not my home receiver. How can I hook it up to receive the sound through my Onkyo receiver TX-NR807.
My hook-up now consists of a Directv receiver wired with HDMI to my home receiver, DVd player wired with HDMI to my home receiver and then only one HDMI coming from my HDMI out on my home receiver to my TV. Thanks for any help.

Audio connection

Connect OPT OUT on the TV to OPT IN on the HT via an optical audio cable.

CBL (DVD) => HDMI => HT => HDMI => TV
PC >>>> Wireless LAN >>>> TV => OPT => HT

DLNA connection vs. 5.1/7.1 sound

Hi guys,
just wondering whether you can help me
I have an UE46C6900 LED TV which is linked with my PC via ethernet cable and using DLNA
I am planning to buy an AV receiver HW-C700
My question is...if I select a movie (.mkv) using DLNA from my PC which has a DTS-HD sound...will it work if my TV will be linked to the AV receiver via optical calbe? Will I hear a 7.1 sound from the speakers? I understand the sound is downgraded to 2ch if using HDMI from Blu-Ray, DVD etc which are connected to the TV...but will the TV downgrade the sound to 2 ch if I am using ethernet (DLNA) or USB? Will the sound be downgraded to 2-channel in the optical out if I have my TV linked with my PC via ethernet? (DNLA/AllShare)? Or it will bypass the 7.1 sound via the optical cable to my receiver?

Thank you in advance for your reply

"This is what I found in the maunal of the TV, but they do not mention DNLA (AllShare)
When a digital audio system is connected to the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT (OPTICAL) jack, decrease the volume
of both the TV and the system.
5.1 CH (channel) audio is available when the TV is connected to an external device supporting 5.1 CH.
When the receiver (home theatre) is set to on, you can hear sound output from the TV's optical jack. When the
TV is receiving a DTV signal, the TV will send 5.1 CH sound to the home theatre receiver. When the source is
a digital component such as a DVD / Blu-ray player / cable box / STB (Set-Top-Box) satellite receiver and is
connected to the TV via HDMI, only 2 CH audio will be heard from the home theatre receiver. If you want to
hear 5.1 CH audio, connect the digital audio out jack from your DVD / Blu-ray player / cable box / STB satellite
receiver directly to an amplifier or home theatre."

If you need exact settings, call 1800SAMSUNG and have them walk you through it.

Maybe today's gear is too hard to setup?
