Customer Question
didn't know where to respond...
didn't know where to respond to Pete - I checked the output mode and it is already set to PCM - Dolby is not available. I am finished for the night. Will try tomorrow with any suggestions you may have to try to resolve the problem. It must have something to do with the source of the audio being different from that of cable.

Hi Bob, if PCM does not work then I am out of ideas. I will open this up to the other experts.

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
