Maybe somebody can help me with this. I have an older plasma, Elite Pro110FD which works great. It is over the mantel not in the home theater. I wanted to improve the sound in a simple way for the "family" with no extra equipment and extra remotes. Bought the Bose Cinemate Soundbar. It connects with the digital audio out of the TV. Set it up turned it on, no sound. After racking my brain for a couple of days I looked the Pioneer Manual (over 100 Pages) and found buried in there that the digital audio out is disabled when source components are hooked up via HDMI. They must have been concrerned with copy protection when this TV was made. Can't find anywhere in the manual or on the internet where one might be able to get into the service manual and maybe enable this. I have returned the sound bar but still would like to improve the sound. Thought the brightest minds here at SatelliteGuys could help.
