XBOX ONE X - SOundtouch 300 - Optoma GT1080Darbee (5.1 sound output is not working)
I recently purchased the soundtouch 300 + acoustimass 300+ Wireless 300 speaker combination.
I am running an hdmi cable from the xbox to the soundtouch and from there to the projector.
I couldnt get the soundtouch to play any audio!
Spent about an hour trying to restart the projector , soundtouch (this after installing the update for soundtouch 300 speakers).
Earlier I had the same setup, but only difference was instead of the Bose system, I was running it through the Klipsch RSB6 (2.1 channel soundbar + wireless sub), and it worked fine.
Now ... it was just silence. The system is working fine when I stream over bluetooth.
Any idea on how to make this work for 5.1 ?
I tried a work around (Thank Google!), where the X-box sends uncompressed stereo output and I set send AUX input over HDMI and that worked after a fashion. However when you do that, my Xbox cannot send a signal to Bose to shut it down when the X box shuts down AND I am unable to get the Xbox to send 5.1 output to the system. It says your audio system cannot handle this!
weird, when something worked with a 250$+tax Klipsch a $1700+tax system is driving me nuts.
Any help or workaround or pointers on this will be highly appreciated.
