TX-P3271H audio output question

Threaded View


  I have a Samsung TX-P3271H tv and a
Pioneer VSX-D514-S receiver. The tv/sat analog audio
in jacks and digital optical audio in on the Pioneer
are both activated with the tv/sat button on the remote.
When set to auto-sense the receiver auto detects whether its a getting a
analog or digital signal and switches appropriately.
  I have the analog audio outs on my tv hooked to the
tv/sat analog inputs on the receiver and the digital
optical out from the tv to the digital optical jack on
the receiver.
  When I am viewing a digital channel I get nice
5.1 Dolby Digital through my receiver but when I switch to a analog
channel I get no sound and the receiver still
lights up its Digital indicator.
  If I unplug the optical cable while watching digital or
standard tv the receiver switches over into analog.
  Will this tv output analog sound over the analog outputs when viewing
non-digital channels if a optical cable is hooked up ?
  If it wont this sucks because I have standard non-digital Comcast
cable and I get my hd channels ota.
  I can always put the analog into another input on my receiver but then
I have to switch inputs when go from analog channel to digital channel.

Thanks

Your test shows that it does, doesn't it. I don't think the optical
output senses if a cable is connected or not.
The problem is that the SPDIF output is still active (but muted) which
override the analogue input in your audio amplifier.

At least you can do it by remote command ;)

(I have a similar problem to share "input "  with certain units that
leaves their SPDIF output active also when in standby.)
