So I just changed from DTV to Dish. I'm using the 612 box.
My audio setup is as follows. It worked for two different DTV boxes:
My surround receiver doesn't have HDMI. Therefore:
HDMI from 612 to TV
Optical out from TV to surround receiver.
Everything worked peachy... past tense.
With the 612, this setup gives me only video- no audio to my surround. I'm currently using the Optical out on the 612 for audio. But I even used my old DTV box last night to watch some recorded shows and the original setup worked fine.
The audio portion of the HDMI out on the 612 works. I tested it on the TV speaker.
So what can go goofy that this will work with the DTV receiver and not the Dish?
