I just bought a 50" Vizio Plasma and Samsung HT-HDP40 HTIB to use with my HD TiVO. Both units connect to the TV with HDMI cables. Great picture and no cable mess. When I play DVDs I get the great home theater sound. BUT how do I use the HTIB for surround while watching TiVo? I bought optical cable and connected the two, but I had no sound. I went into the TiVo menu and enabled dolby digital, but still had no sound through the speakers. Also it stopped working for the TV so I switched it back to stereo mode.
How an I set it up so I can watch an dlisten through the TV normally, but sometimes turn on the HTIB for surround sound listening?
