Question Tivo Boop/Beep Sounds work sometimes

I've seen other posts but I still need explanation. I had an LCD TV connected to my Premier Tivo with an HDMI cable and the beeps/boops worked great. Last night I bought a new LED TV, also hooked up with the same HDMI cable and now I don't hear any Beeps/Boops - however they DO work when going into the setup menus (the old non-HD menus). They don't make sound for fast forward, or my shows etc, but the old menus like settings etc DO make the sounds. I'm a bit confused as to why, and is there anyways to fix this. I, unlike a lot of people, like the sounds!

IIRC, on one of the audio settings the sounds will only work sometimes. Try changing the audio output on the TiVo.

Here are a couple of threads that discuss the Dolby vs PCM (under Settings > Audio) issue for Sound Effects.

Same problem, Elite/4 hooked straight to LCD via HDMI, I got all 3 beeps when FF multiple times, etc. Replaced LCD with LED, checked that audio is still on PCM, and while I get sound effects in menus, I only get one beep even when I hit the FF 3x (should have 3 beeps).

If it helps, I went from a Sony XBR4 to a Sony HX 950.
