Getting Audio to default to Digital outp on panasonic tvs

by joshcrowl / December 3, 2012 2:36 AM PST

I've had a persistent and annoying problem after moving to Dish Network. I have 2 Panasonic TVs. The 1st is Plasma 55" with a 7.1 surround sound system and the other is a 47" LED with a Sound bar. After upgrading to Dish both systems are defaulting to AUX for sound and have to be forced back to Digital 1 for sound output. How do I get them to default to Digital 1 for sound output? Have you heard of this problem?

Hi my name is Kim and I am a Social Media Representative at DISH. I understand you're trying to connect your sound bar to your DISH receiver. Before I can fully assist you, what is the name and model number of the sound bar system? What model type of DISH receiver do you have?

Welcome to the CNET forums!

Just to let you know , I went ahead and edited out your email address to prevent the abuse by spammers. It's always never a good idea to post your email address in a public site as I can guarantee that you will be subjected to unsolicited emails from spammers, etc.

Also please consider assisting this member right here in the forums, rather than one on one through email as I'm sure others who maybe encountering this or similar issues can learn from your help also.

BTW let me know if you will be visiting the CNET forums on a regular basis, if you are I can set up a DISH vendor badge for you and any of your other reps, so you can be instantly recognized by our community as official reps of DISH. If you are interested, please click on my username and email me from CNET profile page.

There are two setups both with the same problem
first is:
TV Panasonic vieta 55" plasma connected to a Panasonic SA-BT300 7.1 Bluray Home Theater system.
Dish Hopper S230 NACD HD reciver and DVR.
the symtem is aferter turning the system on the sound cut out and the system failes over to AUX. you then have to press the EXT-in on the remote to have it switch over to D-IN 1.

The second system is
TV Panasonic vieta 47" LED with a SU-HTB20 sound bar and is connected to a Joey
It too comes up and then fails over to AUX.

Why direct customer to phone support so quickly?

At least go through some sort of basic back and forth troubleshooting here so it's documented for future folks having similar issues. That's the point of you being here, I believe, and Lee providing you with a vendor badge.
