I have been a WDTV live user now for about a week, everything worked fine until i got a broken hdmi cable… pins inside of the cable were crossed (damaged) so i had to get a new hdmi cable. In my living room i have an optical digital cable and the sound works fine with the digital option.
The problem is that i have no sound over the HDMI cable when im playing anything in my bedroom (mp3, mkv etc), i have no surround set in there so i have to use the hdmi cable for sound. I have tried 2 types of hdmi cables and these cables are accepted by my playstaion 3… i get normal sound. Ive changed the option from “digital” to “stereo” but that didnt make a difference. I have also tried new firmware 1.04.10 and older firmware + i have resetted the machine a few times on the side of my unit. Is it possible that the old HDMI cable damaged the machine?
Am i missing something here?
Hope that someone understands these issues and can help me out!
