HI

i ave been trying today to get my htpc which has hdmi out to the new onkyo 705 av reciever.

i get video feed but no audio

if i plug the hdmi cable directly to the tv i get audio
all the settings i assume are correct to accept audio on hdmi

sky hd works though hdmi - but i dont get dd5.1 i have to use optical for that *i would like confermation on that


thanks

I'm sure it's a setting on the onkyo amp that need applying and as such i move this thread to the integrated amp forum where most of the Onkyo threads seem to be.

moved fromComputer systems forum

Yes sky only send stereo over the hdmi lead for some bizarre reason. You need optical for Dolby Digital broadcasts.

Sorry can't help with the other issue.

You need to go into setup - assign input - Digital inputs

Change the source to HDMI.

You also need to check that your HTPC can output audio over HDMI as most can not, they only send video at present.
