I've tried 2 configurations:


1. ATV to TV with HDMI

a) optical TV to BOSE

b) optical ATV to BOSE


Sound OK through TV, but not working through BOSE.


What am I doing wrong?

Apple TV

    Just to test go to Settings on AppleTV and change Dolby Digital from Auto to On.


    For me that causes no sound to the TV over HDMI but DD over optical to surround system.  When set to Auto I only get stereo from the surround system.

    I have a Lifestyle DVD system and I connected my Apple TV to the vs-2 system via HDMI to the VCR video input,connected the optical audio from the Apple TV to the back of the media center optical audio in. I then went to the system settings<Media Center<Optical Source<set to "VCR" (same as HDMI input on the VS-2)<Digital Audio Output<PCM, sound comes thru Bose system speakers, hope this helps.
