DTS sound from Sony 40D3000/RDR-HXD870 and Yamaha DSP-AX757SE - PLEASE HELP!
Just got the above TV and DVD/HDD recorder, and connected each with a QED HDMI cable. My Yamaha AV amp does not have any HDMI inputs, but I thought I would be able to get full 5.1 DTS sound by connecting the the TV to the amp with an optical lead as the signal would pass 'straight trough', but that doesn't appear to work! Am I going to have to get a coaxial lead to connect the DVD recorder to the amp, and will it output a digital audio signal if both HDMI and coxial leads are connected? Or are there any settings that I am missing that will enable me to avoid splashing out on another cable ..?
Loving the picture, but really hoping I can get the sound sorted now ..! All help/advice very welcome!
