    Hello
    I have tried everything, i know is possible to solve my problem.
    I Have a Thermaltake PC Media based HDMI output, with SPDIF audio out as seperate.
    I plug the HDMI into the HDMI assignable socket on the Amp.
    Then plug the SPDIF out into the COAX digital input on 1 (DVD) Then i went to the Input setup menu, and configured the DVD option to choose Coax 1 and Video signal HDMI 1.
    Exit and play a Blue Ray film on my Media Centre.
    I Get the image, but no sound.
    For more guidance, when the HDMI cable is unplugged from the HDMI OUT on the amp, i get sound!!!!????
    Plug the HDMI back in, and get Picture with No sound>?????
    My Head is wrecked?? I have razor blades at the ready.
    Can anyone offer their wisdom to this dumbo!

    Cheers Stace:lease::confused:

    Disconnect the coax and configure everything to send sound over HDMI.

    I'm now very confused. Your post is entitled "I cannot get sound over HDMI on my Pioneer VSX-LX51"; the details mention theuse of HDMI and coax. Now you say it can't be configured to support this.

    If your amp cannot extract the sound from the HDMI, configure the source to force the sound over the coax, not over HDMI / automatic (as you've done with the DVD). Also try plugging the HDMI straight into the TV, not through the amp.
