...on the sci atlanta menus(?) Also, what about the audio input assignments on the Sony A/V component? What are those set at now?
What I have 1) Scientific Atlanta Explorer 3250HD digital HD cable box, 2) SONY Bravia KDL-40V2500 HD TV, and 3) SONY HT-CT100 A/V soundbar system. Also have a SONY DVPNC800HB DVD player but that works fine, connected via HDMI cable to A/V system and to TV through HDMI cable, currently in second HDMI jack (#7) on back of TV.
Problem: Can't get any sound from cable programming through the A/V system.
What I've done so far:
1. Connected the DVI out on the back of the cable box to the Satellite in HDMI on the A/V receiver and optical out on the back of the cable box to the optical in satellite on the A/V receiver. Got picture on TV through A/V system (via HDMI cable connecting A/V system to TV HDMI in), but no sound through either soundbar or TV.
2. Connected cable DVI to TV HDMI (position #6) and optical on back of cable box to satellite in on back of A/V. Still no sound through A/V system or TV.
3. Connected component audio out on back of cable box to component audio in in back of A/V receiver,no sound through either A/V or TV.
4. Connected component audio out on back of cable box to component audio in on back of TV and TV to A/V via optical out on TV to TV optical in on back of A/V, still no sound through A/V, but now can get sound through TV speakers.
So after all of this, my cable box is only connected to the TV and I'm back where I started.
I must be doing something wrong but cannot figure out what, no insights from either the cable box, TV or A/V system owner's manuals.
