Not sure if this is in the right place, but here i go.
I recently purchased a Blu-Ray player to use with my 6 month old Sony LCD TV and my 3-4 year old sony home theater system.
After waiting to recieve some cables, i'm confused as to how to get sound via HDMI from the player into the home theater system, while also getting picture.
The Blu-Ray player, a Sony BDP-S570 i believe, has one HDMI out, which i would assume is to be plugged into the numerous tv HDMI input ports. However, my Home theater receiver only has one HDMI port that was previously hooked into the tv. I thought that i would be able to plug both into hdmi in ports on the tv and thus route the sound through the tv, out to the home theater, but i guess it doesn't work that way, as i get no sound. My question is, how do I get the Blu-Ray player to both output HDMI video to the tv and high definition sound to the home theater system? I'm probably missing something very simple, but I'd really like to know, and quickly, because currently both are pulled out wit wires dangling, unfunctional.
Please respond and thank you in advance,
