That's why I said it might help. Guess not. (I was referring to a TV software setting, not simply muting the sound.)

The strangest thing about this is that I have been using this exact same set up for about 6 months and never had this problem until about a month ago when the cable company, Time Warner, updated the box's software with a new On Screen Navigator.
It would appear the update did something else, too.

Also, my Playstation 3 still switches from PCM to dolby digital every time I use it, unlike the box.
The PS3 probably doesn't care about that particular part of the handshake.

I have the TV speakers turned to 'off' under the TV's menu, not just muted.

Again, I appreciate the help, thanks.

It's too bad that the component video output is not as good as HDMI. That's true with my cable box, too. While discrete DD 5.1 is preferable, I find PLII works well with most TV programs. But, you may need to rent more movies instead of getting them on demand in order to get better sound. With a PS3, I'd be getting the Blu-ray versions anyway - video and audio will be better than on demand even if everything worked properly.

I only rent movies off of 'on demand' because the Blockbuster near my house closed down and I have had horrible luck with Netflix.

I had a long, bad streak with Netflix as well but lately, no problems at all. I would say that half of the BDs I'd receive were broken but none in the last couple of months. I prefer BD over 'on demand'.

Sorry to hear about your Netflix experience. I've only had one problem Blu-ray disc from them in the last six months.
