My setup was like this:
outside cable into cable box
cable box into TV
I am hooking up a Panasonic SC-BTT195 Blu-Ray theater system. My TV does not support ARC (whatever that is).
Right now I have it hooked up to the TV with a 1.4 HDMI cable and a Optical Digital Audio cable. The Blu Ray looks and sounds amazing, but I cannot watch TV through it. I have to use my TV remote to switch to regular TV, and while there is surround sound, it's hardly anything.
Do I have to go through the cable box? My box does not have either of these connectors.
