I have a Roku express playing through a Panasonic TV and Panasonic Home theater system. I "cut the cable cord" and removed the cable box which was hooked up to this same setup and put in the Roku. The audio output will only play through the TV and not the surround sound. When I use the Panasonic "Viera Link" and change it to Home Theater, it goes silent. I went through all the various Roku audio settings and the only thing that did was make it so the audio would not even work through the TV. I was streaming Netflix while trying all of this out. What settings do I need to change? Obviously, the only difference was the introduction of the Roku. It is an older set up where I have the Roku running via HDMI to the TV and the TV and Home Theater player are connected via HDMI as well. This has to be a common issue as I am sure I am not the first to want to do this. Any help is appreciated.
I have the Roku in HDMI 2. For the audio I have RCA cables in component 2, while using a converter to AUX to attach my computer speakers. I have tried all the configurations for the RCA white and red cables for these speakers. I am now thinking I need to get a HDMI converter to attach the computer speakers to HDMI 1 with ARC. Please let me know your thoughts! Thanks!
