HD sound and 3D at sme time, please
I have just bought a Samsung 55ES8000 TV.
I have an Onkyo 805 receiver, which DOES NOT support 3D.
I have a Sony BPS 470 Blu Ray Player which is 3D.
I have a NEET doubler that I have connected to HDMI out of Blu Ray player.
One output from the NEET goes to receiver, the other to the TV. The theory is that I bipass teh receiver for 3D picture, and I bipass the TV for HD sound.
However, whilst I get the 3D picture, I do not get HD sound from my reciever. Just PCM stereo.
Having experimented, there are 2 possibilities:
1. The TV is feeding back via the NEET to the receiver that the sound shoudl be stereo only
2. The NEET stops HD Sound and 3D being passed through.
If number 1 is the problem, any workarounds, please?
If number 2 is the problem, could it be my cables that are the issue (even though they are short, gold plated connectors and very thick)? Or could it be that the NEET box is nto suitable - cannot see why?!
HDMI is so fernickety!
Please help as I am desperate to watch Hugo in 3D and full HD sound.
P.S. One thing I will try is setting my Blu Ray player to PCM output rather than Bitstream, and let my player do the decoding rather than my receiver. The difference should not be discernible, and this would be an acceptabel workaround.
