Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review and reply.

Can you tell me the model of the converter?

I'm assuming you are using an optical to stereo type converter, and yes virtually all of those require a pcm format to work.

If you go into the panasonic menu, under audio (sound) you should then see output format, and have the option to choose pcm/stereo, or dolby/auto. You want to pick the pcm (also known as stereo, or bitstream, or 2 channel).

Let me know if that works for you.
