Issues with LG TV, LG Home Theater and Rogers HD Box

I Plan to Stick Around

So I have a LG 47" 3D TV and just bought a LG Home Theatre system.  My ROgers box is a Pace 551 HD. 

 

I'm having issues getting both sound and video together.

 

Here is what I've tried.

 

Plug HDMI from Rogers to Blue Ray HDMI IN.

Plug BR HDMI (TV Out) to HDMI (ARC) on TV.

I get sound but no picture.

 

Plug Rogers into HDMI 2 on TV

Plug BR (out to TV) to HDMI ARC on TV.

I get picture but no sound from surround sound.

 

Why am I having a hard time setting this up?  Roger's site tells me that my box should plug into the BR and then from the BR to the TV but it doesn't work. 

 

The cables are good as they transport both Video and sound but not together.

 

Help.

 

Thanks

Hmm, first thing might be a box swap ( if you are renting). Iliminate that box out of the equation

Could just be In the end that that box doesn't work nicely with the surround sound (but fine with others).

Cable HDMI in to TV

xbox hdmi in to TV

The only issue with the above is that most TVs don't pass surround sound out of the optical connection except for what the ATSC tuner pulls in. You may want to check the manual of yours to see if it does or does not. Also, make sure that the wii audio is connected as well as the component cable.

I just looked up the pace hd box, and it does have an optical out, so could go straight from the Rogers box to the surround with optical for audio, while otherwise for video.
