Default Home Theater Help

HELP!! Moved this discussion out of the santa thread. I can only get surround sound to work with the 360, and only with games. Doesn't work with DVD's played through it. Bought another optical cable to run from the DVD player that came with the system. Hooked it up, and nothing. WTF am I doing wrong?? I am very frustrated. Please help.

Hmms. Can you take a picture of your setup? It really should just be optical in to optical out.

Did you click on your input mode and move it to OPT IN ?

It's a button on the front of the reciever.

why do you have audio connected (red white) on your dvd player? If you have optical, you don't need those.

Oh duh!

Look at what your optical inputs are listed as: Mine are video 1 and video 2. Make sure your yellow video cord from dvd is pklugged into one of those (vid 1 or Vid 2) and not dvd and that the optical cable from dvd matches.

Ok, I'm a tad baked, so bear with me:

Video from DVD -----> TV
Optical from DVD----->Either vid 1 or vid 2 on your reciever

then depending on which you picked (vid 1 or vid 2) select that on your reciever and make sure the input is set to OPT IN.

And why wouldn't a DVD played through the 360 come through in full surround?
