I have an analog soundbar, and need to buy a converter to make the wireless Genie mini work for an audio source. Is the digital audio output on these a PCM/LPCM format, or Dolby? There apparently converters, and there are decoders. Which one to buy?

The minis do actually have analog audio outputs, you just need the 10 PIN DIN breakout cable available from DIRECTV or 3rd party resellers such as solidsignal.com

The problem is that the TV has no audio output. When you choose the
HDMI input, it does not receive the component signal, audio included. I
have both hooked up, and the 10 pin breakout cable, when hooked with one
lead (yellow) to the video input on the tv, it shows up black and white,
and no audio coming through the soundbar. So, I have ordered a digital
decoder to hook up. I hope it works.

No, the breakout cable connects directly to the soundbar

Thanks for the replies. Mission accomplished. You were right, no decoder needed. I ordered one and sent it back.. Thanks again.

I have an HR44-700. I have been using coax out to a DAC to my analog amplifier. DAC currently out of commision, so I'm trying to hook up component audio out of dvr straight into amp. I can get left or right channel sound when only one rca plug is plugged into DVR, but when i plug in both rca plugs, only one channel works. Have switched from regular rca jacks, to coax jacks and even switched amps, but same problem. I have even used right plug from 1 cable, and the left plug from another cable with same results. And it makes no difference if box is set up for dolby or pcm????
