I'm not sure WHY you would connect your tv, sound bar, and AV system in this manner and have no idea how it could have worked before with your other tv. Moreover, I have never heard of someone using a sound bar and AV System in the manner you are trying to use it. Is there some reason why you don't get a real Center channel speaker?
Normally, you would get a Center channel speaker and connect it to the AV System. Unfortunately a sound bar cannot be used as a true center channel speaker on this Sony AV System.
I might be able to suggest an alternate way to connect the sound bar but would need to know if that would be something you would be interested in?

I was not using the speakers that were attached to the receiver, However that being said I have figured it out and now have sound through the sound bar and not the attached speakers.
