We know that due to HDCP rules we should not pass more than Stereo out of a HDTV except for OTA (over the air.) If we put a nice Blu-Ray to the HDTV then try to get more than Stereo from the HDTV to the HT system you should see this happen.
This is why we always hook up like this.
Source -> HT system -> HDTV.
It's a simple issue not limited to any maker. It's something I consider consumer unfriendly.
I can only get 2.1 stereo from this damm thing.After connecting to both my Humax foxsat hdr and my sony blueray via hdmi and/or rca cable, I cannot get 5.1 operation of the hw e350 no matter what configuration and changes of cables and/or settings on the equipment.
I wished I had just carried on running through my hi fi to improve the sound of my samsung 5 series tv.
Anyone else having this problem?
