Re: big problem with receiver

It depends on the reciever, What kind of cables are you using to connect to the unit? That unit just does video pass through, through HDMI no audio, so you may need video and audio cables. Just depends on how you have it hooked up and if the connection is tight enough

Re: big problem with receiver

I would recommend going though your menu system.  Many systems require you to specify what kind of connection to use for each audio and video source.


Since it is flashing PCM, you may need to tell where to look for your audio signal (i.e. Coax or TosLink(SpDif))
