no sound with hdmi audio please help
I need help. I just got the nmt today. my hdtv only has component video which I hooked directly to the nmt. I then connected an hdmi cable to my onkyo 705 because I want to get hd audio. problem is I get no sound at all. I have changed every setting back and forth. I have tried multiple files to test with and still no sound. when I hook my ps3 up with the same cable and input I get hdmi sound with component video but not with popcorn hr. I then tested it by plugging an optical cable into the nmt and I get full 5.1 sound. so what am I doing wrong. the reason I bought the popcorn hour is for hdmi audio. how do I get the hdmi audio to work with component video. is it a firmware bug.
Help please

RE: no sound with hdmi audio please help
since you have a decent receiver, you should plug HDMI into it, and run component out to your TV from the receiver, that should solve all your problems.

i have the yamaha rx-v663 and it has hdmi out and component out, so i assume you have the same, otherwise time to get a real (yamaha) receiver.

I *think* (read: not for certain) to use HDMI audio you have to have the latest stable firmware.

Also, what are your audio settings on the PCH?

I remember I had to change a few of those away from "RAW" to get them to play over my optical audio. I can't remember the exact setting b/c I don't have working PCH box right now.

If I remember correctly, the DTS stuff worked fine with RAW but everything else needed to be set for PCM something or another.

Someone with the proper knowledge want to chime in?

RE: no sound with hdmi audio please help
What kind of audio format is used in your file. Is it DTS? If yes then you cannot output it by HDMI in current firmware. Also use AAC and AC3 to analog and other PCM or digital .

you are connecting things wrong

You cannot use analog component for video from PCH to a component only screen and at the same time HDMI for audio only to a HDMI receiver. You cannot send audio only through HDMI and your receiver will not understand to receive any signal if there are no Video in it.

When you select component the HDMI output gets disabled - both for video and audio.

To use HD audio - you HAVE to send both Video and Audio through HDMI to a HDMI receiver and from there pass through video to a compatible screen. If your receiver can output component video from an incoming HDMI video input then that could be a possibility, but I dont know of any receiver which can do this (HDCP).

If you connect player to a tv using component, you can only send audio through its SPDIF or analog outputs - not HDMI

Living room: C200/A200/A100 HDMI to Pioneer KURO KRP-500A plasma / Denon AVR 3808 / KEF 5005.2 / B&W DM685
Kids room: C200/A110 HDMI to Panasonic 42PZ85, Optical to Logitech Z5500.

RE: no sound with hdmi audio please help
i have a similar issues due to my sony STR-K900. its just a pass through receiver with HDMI audio, therefore HDMI for me is strictly video, i need to know how to use HDMI video, and have the sound come through the optical cable if possible?

i have looked through settings but cannot find any options to do this, please help, other wise the only way it works is if the audio plays throgh my tv, which is only stereo and not 5.1 like i want.

ok thanks for the response. I was wondering since the ps3 can pass hdmi audio and analog component video at the same time, is it possible with a future firmware update the pch will be able to do this by not disabling the hdmi output when component is selected?

it has been stated in another thread that this will not happen because they ran into memory leaks when they tried to do this.
