722K - optical v HDMI?
Posted 12 October 2010 - 08:11 PM
I just upgraded to HD(finally:D ) with a 722K. I had a 6 yr old DVR (SD) and used an optical for the audio.
The 722K is connected via HDMI to my Onkyo 708. When reading through the manual for the 722K it says you can't get 5.1 unless you use the optical - is this true? Won't the HDMI transmit all audio signals? It seems that the 708 is decoding Dolby D and such.

You can get DD from either optical or HDMI.

I'm also using optical audio with my Pioneer SC-07 because it also had the hdmi audio dropout problem with the 722K. Only some receivers seem to have the hdmi audio dropout problem but mine had it in spades. No problems with any other hdmi audio sources, just Dish.
I changed my 622 and my 922 to optical for audio. That was to eliminate audio drop outs while using HDMI.
