    One of my dealers asked the following;

    <span style=”font-family: Calibri, sans-serif;”><span style=”font-size: 11pt;”>We installed a HD Anywhere 4 x 4 matrix for a client a few months ago and it is working perfect. The issue that the client is experiencing, is that 2 of his TV screens does not support digital audio over HDMi. So in other words, if a Dolby Digital movie comes on over DSTV, only two of his screens transmits audio, the other two are silent. The only way to remedy this, is by changing the audio output of the matrix from 5.1, to 2.0. This now causes another problem as the signal from the DSTV is split via an HDMi splitter to both the amplifier and the matrix input. It was done this way so that the cinema can still function </span><span style=”font-size: 14.6667px;”>independently</span><span style=”font-size: 11pt;”> from the rest of the TVs and not be reliant on the matrix switching the inputs. He also has a soundbar in the one room, which is digital audio compatible and hence would like to have a 5.1 audio signal going to the unit. In other words – he does not want 2.0 audio only to be transmitted via the matrix. He even expressed that he will be happy with an HDMi de-embedder at the 2 non-compatible screens and use an external speaker solution. I tried a de-embedder. It does pass through </span><span style=”font-size: 14.6667px;”>multi-channel</span><span style=”font-size: 11pt;”> audio but in PCM not Dolby or DTS. How to fix this.</span></span>
