    Got HDMI?

    Yeah, and I thought that I could use the ARC to get the TV signal to the Cambridge. That doesn't work and I prefer not to do that anyway. I think I have to take it in to the Geek Squad because it's only a 40". I don't want those people in my house anyway.

    Maybe there is a problem because thr TV output is some fancy format?
  • afterburntafterburnt Posts: 4,937
    @DSkip ehat do you think? I am thinking it is an AV codec so it wont work.

    If it won't play you should be able to convert the signal to a PCM stream that the DAC can handle. Most standalone dacs won't do Dolby or dts

    I bet you are right. I will figure it out evetually. I may even start watching it with decent sound.

    Solved the problem by connection the coax from my BR. I only want to use it on occasion and this is a perfect solution.
