Hey all, i just bought the PlayonHD Essential today. Im not happy
Ive flashed the firmware to latest version r2688 and done this several times. Ive read all the problems posted here on the forums regarding sound and nothing worked.
I am using an optical cable for sound and the HDMI is for video. My older WD Media player works fine with the HDMI cable and optical cable for audio, so the cables are fine and my Reciever is working perfectly.
I have tried mpg/avi/mp4/mkv files all same result which is no sound. I did try plugging in a cable into the coaxial output and managed to get very very very soft sound. The volume on the media player is full and on my Reciever was set to full, but still soft sound.
Is my unit broken right out of the box? How do i replace it?
