  3. HDMI Video but no Optical Sound

    I have my xbox one connected to an Pioneer AV Receiver (LX SC81). Up to this point I was using HDMI for sound and video with no problems. Ive just bought the Rocksmith guitar game and have read online that there is serious sound lag when using HDMI for audio.
    Therefore, Ive connected an optical audio cable from the XBox to one of the AVR optical inputs.

    When in the menu settings of the AVR, video from the xbox is turned off which is normal. When in the menu settings the xbox audio via optical works as i can hear the game audio coming through the speakers. When I come out of the menu in the AVR and video
    returns, the sound cuts off. It seems I can have video (HDMI) or sound (optical) but not both?? Ive tried the Optical uncompresed stereo, bitstream DTS and DD.

    Hey there paulktmman,

    How are the headphones connected in this setup and which model are you using? Have they ever worked in this setup?

    USB audio???????

    When I say usb headset I'm talking about no optical audio cord connected to the xbox and no 3.5mm cord connected to the controller for use of mic. I have a gen2 astro a50 for the xbox one says on the box for xbox one. On my ps4 slim which has no optical
    out. I can hook my amp to the ps4 only using only the usb port and in setting under audio devices you can have game and mic audio go to headset with no mic or optical cords. And it sound just the same and you can adjust mic sensitivity for background noise.
    A much better set up than xbox and there outdated stereo and optical cords.

    Sound Issue

    You most likely have to run an optical audio cable from your Xbox one to your tv (if it has an optical audio input that is) if you want to get the audio to your sound bar. Audio should still come out through the tv's built in speakers though.

    Having an issue with Optical Audio from Xbox One

    Hi NhraRacer,

    Sorry you're having issues with your audio on your Xbox One. It looks like you already did the first step which was removing the middle man with the audio switch box. Do you have any other optical receiver that you can test this on to see if you can
    hear the audio? Doing that would help narrow down where the issue is. Also I would try multiple cables to see if you can get audio passing through the console.

    First question. Have you gone through and selected the Optical Out to be the sound output on the console? To do this, press menu, go to settings, go to Display and Sound, then under audio select "Optical Audio".

    Let us know if you've done all this, and if you can get audio through another optical audio device with another cable.

    Xbox One no surround sound on my home theater

    First, try going to Settings > Display and Sound > In the middle, change the "HDMI Audio" setting to '5.1 uncompressed'.

    If you still can't get 5.1 audio to your sound system, try buying an optical audio cable and plug that from the back of your xbox one into your sound system and change the settings on your sound system to use the 'Optical In' or a setting that chooses that
    input. Don't forget to change the settings like the one above, but under "Optical Audio" choose "Bitstream Out" and change "Bitstream Format" to "DTS Digital Surround." The optical audio port is right between the HDMI in and out ports.
