I just finished getting my new nextbox 3.0. I have it hooked up to a Pioneer VSX-60 Elite receiver with a HDMi. I notice that I only get stereo sound and not surround. I have tried a new HDMI and still no fix. Anyone else see this or have a possible solution. With my old PVR there was never this issue. Thanks.
Surround sound drop is a known issue (at least to users anyway...most Rogers reps will still deny there's any issue). There's multiple threads about it here.
Indeed. Running an optical cable from the box to the receiver doesn't really make much of a difference. Rogers is aware of the issue; I'm still having issues with intermittent dropped frames/skipped video so I had to call in to book another visit (getting a "senior tech" this time and they mentioned the "Other" setting for audio and video as 1080i. I chuckled. 🙂
Would be nice for Rogers to light a fire under Cisco and get them to fix the issue. It's only been HOW LONG now?
