    Using my receiver/sound system to deliver the Xbox audio


    I purchased a new Xbox One and after setup, including connecting my cable tv to the console, I am not getting any audio from my Xbox! I can get the audio from the cable when I am watching tv through the console but when I switch to Xbox there is no audio!
    Help please.

    :)

  2. Razer Kraken Pro + Astro Mixamp?

    Hello guys
    I have a pair of Kraken Pro and I would like to use them to play on the Xbox 360e and Xbox One.
    I thought that I could buy the Astro Mixamp, connect the mic and audio cable (Using a Y Splitter) to the MixAmp. Then hook up the MixAmp to my consoles.
    Will I receive the game audio into my headset?
    The Kraken are 7.1 Surround Sound, will the MixAmp be able to deliver it?
    Will I be able to talk in Xbox Live using the Razer Kraken Pro Mic?

    Dolby Surround on Xbox One X

    Hello,

    I have a very high end surround sound system with a Denon receiver. When I had an Xbox One I was not able to run my cable television through the Xbox as the XBox would take over the audio and I would lose a lot of the surround sound quality versus using
    the receiver. I just purchased a One X and it appears there are a lot more options related to passing through sound and video including Bitstream. I am passing through 4K with HDR+ for the video and am curious if I am able to pass through the audio to the
    receiver and let the receiver use its higher end codecs to process the audio. I forget which version of Dolby I am using, I think it is a step below Atmos.

    In summary, what settings on the One X should I set so that the audio from my Xfinity cable box is not processed by the Xbox but passed through to be processed by my receiver? Or do I have to skip using the Xbox for my TV and go straight from Xfinity to
    my receiver? Thanks for the help and suggestions!

    Xbox One X sound to audio receiver

    You can buy HDMI ARC converter boxes on Amazon that will enable HDMI-ARC on old sound systems, they are essentially dummy sound systems that pose as an ARC receiver then pass the audio to the sound system plugged in at the other end.

    Be aware that HDMI-ARC is no different from optical, it only supports PCM 2.0 (stereo) Dolby 5.1 and DTS 5.1, thats all you get. If you desire HD audio formats or PCM 7.1 you need a 4K/HDR compatible sound system.

    Dolby Atmos is buggy on Xbox because of the way the Xbox audio engine works, MS have an audio upmixer that merges the system UI sounds with audio streams but this does not play well when bitstreaming Atmos. Which on a technical level is handing off the audio
    from Xbox to the sound system to decode so you can see why their upmixer causes all sorts of problems. There really should be a toggle in the audio settings to disable the upmixer (thereby muting system audio) when using Atmos or bitstreaming Blu-ray/Movie/TV
    audio in general.

    Atmos is not designed for gaming in short.

    No Audio with Netflix

    I have the same problem. I have a Pioneer receiver with 4 HDMI inputs. If the Netfix video has Dolby 5.1 audio, then I get sound. If it only has a stereo audio track, then no sound. If the video has both tracks, then only the 5.1 track has sound. I
    went into the system settings for my Xbox, and changed the digital audio settings. Stereo does not produce any sound on the Xbox. The two 5.1 settings do produce sound on the Xbox.

    It looks like the Xbox will not produce plan 2 channel stereo out of the HDMI cable.

    I hooked up the adapter on the Xbox that has the optical out cable. If I connect the Xbox to the Pioneer receiver with HDMI for the video and the optical cable for the audio, then I get sound for 5.1 and 2 channel stereo. This is not the best workaround,
    but it does work for my receiver and TV combination.

    I have a MSI G241 monitor, a Xbox one X, and a LG Z407 Speaker. I have the speaker plugged into my monitor and HDMI for my Xbox. But the speaker isn’t playing any sound. How can I fix this?

    So the optical audio I need the Xbox connected to a TV? And if I want to use HDMI Audio I have to buy a receiver to hear the Xbox sound on my speakers?

    Need help with my surround system

    G'day APEX! Hooking up a sound system is pretty simple. Leave the HDMI cable hooked up to your TV for video. Your system likely came with an audio cable. Plug one end of that into the optical audio port on the back of your console, and plug the other end
    into the audio input port on your sound system's receiver.

    Here's a handy image to help you along.
