Finally splurged and bought a new receiver and LED tv. Bought LG 55LH90 TV and Pioneer VSX-1019AH-K receiver. My previous receiver did not support HDMI
Becuase it didnt support HDMI, i connected Component cables from STB to TV and Optical from STB to receiver. Now that i have a new receiver, i have everything going through HDMI to the receiver, and 1 HDMI out to the TV. When i watch TV with sound set on "Stereo" (2 channel) everything sounds as it should. Sound comes through 2 speakers and is nice and clear. When i change it to Surround Sound, sound comes through all speakers (7.1) but is extremely distorted and 'echoey'. I turn it back to stereo and all is good again.
I have seen this problem in a couple other forums but most of them are older posts. I do not recall seeing any firmware update messages on my TV since getting Uverse about a year ago. Is there a setting i need to change to receive the updates or do i have to manually install them through the USB port? (i figure that there is a slight chance that a firmware update may have fixed this.)
FYI, i AM using HDMI1.3a so they are high speed cables. Blu-Ray and Xbox360 surround sound straight through the same receiver and cables sounds perfect. Video through the STB is pretty good (wish it was 1080p though)
If anyone knows a fix for my problem (preferably without reverting to Component/Optical cables) it would be much appreciated.
