HDCP rules that when a device can render audio or video, any pass through shall be stereo or standard definition (480p). There is an exception for over the air in the rules.
This is not a maker bug or omission. To fix this you run the audio from the source to the HD HT system.
Hello, I'm trying to set up new cinemate series II external speakers to a samsung led un40eh5000f tv. Cable and ps3 going to tv through hdmi. Tv to external speaker system through optical out. There is no out for analog red and white cables. I've changed tv settings to external speakers, already on pcm and cannot change to dolby digital. I am getting power to the speaker system, but no sound at all. Everything is plugged in alright. Any help would be well appreciated!
