So I had an old receiver that didn't do HDMI pass thru. It would do the video thru HDMI but I had to split the audio using an optical cable. I have a Premiere XL4.
In an effort to clean up my cabling and move my xbox 360 to an audio system I got a new Sony HT-CT150. It's an amp/soundbar that does HDMI pass thru.
I've got the tivo and the xbox both hooked up with HDMI only and an HDMI output to the TV.
The Xbox sounds spectacular and exactly how I would expect it to, with no messing around of settings.
The Tivo sounds... tinny. I've messed with the various presets and nothing really seems to make a difference. It's set to Dolby Digital in the tivo settings.
I'd really prefer not to have to run another cable to split the audio up, and not sure if it'd make a difference anyway. Everything I'm reading says it really shouldn't.
Any ideas? Feels like I'm missing something easy
