Streambar with projector and bluray

Jump to solution

I can not get sound to my streambar with my set up when watching bluray/dvd on my projector, is there a way?

This is what I have;

Streambar 

Benq projector without ARC or optical audio out. It has hdmi whiteout ARC and analogue audio out.

Blu-ray player with optical out and hdmi, but no ARC

I hooked optical audio out from bluray to streambar, and hdmi from bluray to projector. Audio comes on sound bar for a couple seconds, but when the movie starts, the audio stops.

Any ideas?

For it to work correctly with other components connected to your tv it HAS to have hdmi-arc or combination of regular hdmi and optical output on the tv. There has to be way to send audio from the tv to streambar, and you don't have one.

I turned the output on the dvd player from bitstream to PCS on the blue ray player, that got the audio to come through the streambar...but I am guessing I lost my dolby feature on the streambar by doing this?  So, still interested in any feedback please if there is a more correct way to set this up.

Thank you.  There is an optical out on the bluray player.  It works if I set the blue ray to PCS audio output, but not bitstream.  Any idea why the streambar is not accepting a bitstream optical output?
