Getting only stereo sound from Fibe TV
I just bought a new LG Smart TV (UM7300) that has required me to readjust my home theater system. I currently have the following setup:
1. LG TV plugged into Yamaha v385 receiver through HDMI arc.
2. Fibe TV box plugged into LG TV through HDMI3
The problem is that I can only get stereo sound from Fibe channels or the PVR. I tried going into the Fibe audio settings and changing it from "stereo" to "surround", but when I did that I got no sound at all.
The receiver appears to be working fine, because I get 5.1 sound from all the TV apps.
I used to get 5.1 sound through Fibe in my previous setup, but that was when I had the box plugged directly into the receiver. I don't want to do that anymore, because then I can't use any of the smart TV menus while watching TV.
My TV gives me 2 audio options for HDMI3 (where the Fibe box is plugged in): PCM or Bitstream. Neither of those settings has any impact on the issue.
Is there some trick to getting Fibe to pass 5.1 audio through the TV? I don't know much about these things so I'm stumbling around in the dark.
