RSB-11 Soundbar & Dolby sound

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!  I just purchased and installed a RSB-11 soundbar.  I have been happy with it and the sound since I installed it, but I do have one question regarding the dolby decoder.  For reference, I have the RSB-11 connected to my Panasonic Viera 50" plasma with a digital optical cable (no HD ARC port available).  My blu-ray and roku are connected to the TV's HDMI ports.  I have never noticed the dolby light illuminate, indicating that the soundbar was processing the dolby sound.  I have tried turning the Klipsch virtual surround option off (even though the manual says it doesn't affect the dolby processing), and the light still doesn't illuminate.  I have also disabled the speakers on the TV (not that I think that makes any difference with the issue).  Any ideas?

 

Thank you in advance.

I know my tv is only able to pass 2 channel stereo out from its optical digital output regardless of the input signal.  I believe most TVs are that way, unfortunately.

Are you able to connect your source directly to the soundbar?

Thanks!  I was just reading this in my TV manual.  I will try connecting the other components to the soundbar instead of the TV to see if it makes a difference.

It definitely will.  TVs can do funky things to audio.  Best to let your amplification device handle it all.
