poor speaker sound from AVR. Set up may be incorrect.
Samsung tv set up.
Cable box has both HDMI and optical outputs.
Cable box is currently connected via HDMI to tv and via optical output to AVR.
I have an HDMI cable from AVR Out into the TV HDMI 1 slot.
I cannot plug HDMI directly from cable box into AVR and get a signal on tv (no audio or video). It says nothing connected.
By this configuration, on the AVR I get two sources for watching cable tv. One says TV Direct and the other says TV Optical. In the direct mode, I only receive sound from 2 speakers (front right/left) but in the optical mode, I receive sound from all speakers (4 surround, 1 center and bass).
When I turn on the equipment, the AVR automatically starts at TV Direct. When I try to switch to TV Optical most times it stops at the DVD Mode (and turns on the DVD player, etc. In order to get out of DVD, I have to turn it off and start all over again).
I am using the optical cables from both the cable box and the blue ray player b/c this is what the instructions appear to mandate for Anynet function.
I have tried to plug the cable HDMI directly into the AVR with and without the use of the optical cable but it does not fix this problem.
I would like to experience all of the functions promised by Samsung when I bought all of these pieces : tv, AVR and blue ray. However they do not function as described. what are your thoughts? Thank you.
