I recently purchased a new Blu Ray player. My home theater has already been set up, I just swapped out my old DVD player for the new Blu Ray. Unfortunately, my audio receiver doesn't have HDMI inputs, but, I've used optical for years and have never had any complaints. I have HDMI running from the player directly to the TV, and have the optical cable running from the Blu Ray player to my receiver. My speakers worked just fine with the old DVD player, and literally the only audio thing I changed was unplugging the optical cable from the old player and plugged it into the new one. But now my surround sound doesn't work. I've tried to go through all the audio set ups within the player's menu but nothing seems to change it. The player just won't detect the 5.1 speakers. Sound comes out, but only in stereo on the front side speakers. Why is this happening and what can I do to fix it?
