SA/Explorer 8300HD TWC: No Audio Through HDMI

Stupid TWC support did not know the answer to this question. The installer did not either. In case anybody is wondering… this is how I got audio through HDMI on my SA 8300 DVR box.

No audio through your HDMI connection? Here is how to fix it.

Of course, this is with Time Warner Cable’s software. Your cable company may be using different software within this box.

1. Turn on your cable box
2. Push Settings button on the remote
3. Push A for More Settings
4. Scroll down with the arrow keys to Audio Digital Out
5. Press Select
6. Pick HDMI and press Select again
7. Press Exit to finish.

    That didn’t work for me. I have Comcast. The Tech SUpport at Comcast and Magnavox didn’t know how to fix. Just gave me b.s.
