I have just connect the dish hopper sling to home theater via optical cable. In setting audio effects Dolby Digital “off” every once in a while get pops have to turn off Home theater or hopper and back on and then seems to work OK for awhile. when I change Dolby Digital in settings to “ON” get no sound.
Hi, Wendywb! Do you notice that it's a specific program that doesn't get a sound when you turn Dolby Digital to 'On" or is it in general that there is no sound?
With Dolby”off” HDMI TO TV. Then had hopper optical out to HTS would get popping after awhile had to turn off and back on to stop it. With Dolby “in” no sound.
Still have HDMI TO TV, and removed optical cable from Hopper. I have optical from TV to HTS.
Hopper/sling settings. Tv(Samsung nu407200) setting HDMI INPUT—PCM and Bitstream —OUTPUT Digital, PCM and Dolby Digital
Dolby ON PCM ————popping. PCM Digtal output
Dolby ON. Bitstream———popping. PCM Digital Output

Any device Optical to HTS to receive Dolby Digital audio on HTSAll new cables HDMI 2.0, Toslink, tried older cables that I had same thing. Spent more than a little time on this, don’t even want to get to the next item 5.1 Dolby
