Hello everyone, I just got a HD NextBox 2.0 today, and everything works fine but when I tried to configure it to my Home Theater system it doesn't seem to work. On my Sony TV, I would go into the menu and set it to "audio system" but it would always revert back to the TV Speakers saying "Audio System unavailable, check if properly connected etc. etc. etc." I have everything plugged in correctly but am not sure what is wrong, is there a certain place I have to plug in the TV and/or box? Please reply, thanks.
We would need ALOT more info.
How exactly everything is wired.
I am assuming, you have the rogers box into the home theature, then from there into the TV?
Via what sort of cable into the home theatre, and what type out?
There could be some setup required on the home theatre as well to let it know what output, etc to use.
Okay, my HDMI port is plugged from the cable box to the TV. The Audio (White &Red) Cable (Supplied) is connected into my cable box and the other end is connected to the SAT/CABLE option on my Home Theater System. I have tried also plugging it into the TV option too but to no luck. Now that the Cable Box is connected to the Home Theater System, is there another plug I need to plug into the TV from the Home Theater System?
I used the Component Cables and that worked fine. Now for the audio should I use the Red and White cabled supplied? If so, do I connect the two using the connector included and put it into "Audio Out" or should I use the other port, and plug it into the home theater system.
If you are using those cables, then yes, you would want them from the audio out, to the audio in on the surround sound.
With those cables though, you will only ever get stereo sound.. so any surround sound you get, will only ever be emulated stereo to the back speakers.
If you want proper say 5.1 dobly, etc.. you would need to run an optical cable from the rogers box to an optical in on the surround sound.
