Ok here we go:
The computer is an Alienware X51 (There is a 3tb USB External Drive Connected to the X52). I have a HDMI cable running from the X51 to my Pioneer VSX 823 (Sat/CBL HDMI Port), and the TV (62" LG Plasma HD TV) is directly connected via HDMI to the VSX.
I'm a Network Security Engineer, so I'm fairly advanced with Computers and I'm certain there is no issues on the Computer side of the fence, However, i will detail the following: In Sounds, my default selection is the VSX 823 and the speakers were set up initially...it is sending sound signal through due to the testing I had done.
When the receiver is turned on and set to Sat/CBL, the computer screen is shown on the TV but there is no sound. The computer detects when the Receiver is on or the settings on the receiver are changed because it resets and goes through detection again. Now, When the receiver is turned off, the sound will automatically be sent through the TV (Remember the X51 is not directly connected to the tv, it is going through the receiver).
Trying to troubleshoot the receiver, I tried changing settings in the HDMI Configuration menu (Turning off Control, ARC, and Pass-Through), as I understand it Control is used to combine remote controls, and ARC is used if I want sound from the TV to be passed to the receiver. No luck there.
I also went through the owners manual for the VSX 832 (which is here LINK).
I am completely baffled as to why this isn't working, I figured by just connecting the HDMI to the receiver all would be fine, lol...not the case.
If I can provide any further info, please let me know...thanks for the help.
