... I'm not sure if I can because it's optical from TV to AVR and HDMI from DVD to AVR. ...
When watching DVD's you need to choose an input in your AVR; Do you use the TV input or DVD input???:huh: ... they will give you a different sound, I'm sure you're using the TV input (I've noticed this in my system) :yes:.

Are you using your TV speakers at the same time with your AVR speakers??? ... I think is not a good idea, at least to me, the sound is not right ... I always set the TV volume to "zero".

Can you explain a little further on checking the inputs??
Looking at the pictures of your HT-S894 online, I think this is the way you have the connections: from DVD HDMI out to HDMI in on the AVR ... from AVR HDMI out to TV HDMI in ... and from TV optical out to AVR optical in, Right???

Play any DVD, then choose the DVD input on your AVR (HDMI 1 or HDMI 2, whichever you use to connect the DVD to the AVR) ... when playing the DVD change the input on the AVR to where you connected the TV (optical 1, optical 2, etc.) ... you will notice that they sound different :yes::yes: ... at least on my HT it does, one day I was adjusting something and I noticed that the sound was not right when playing a DVD; I noticed that the AVR input was set on TV not DVD as always ... that's how I found out that the sound is different if you don't get it directly from DVD player :yes:

We might have a winner!!! I think I had to many "in1's", etc. assigned to component & HDMI. I only have in1 to HDMI/DVD and in1 to Component/Video 1. I think I got it. Thanks guys, I knew it just wasn't right!!!!!!!!!!!
:confused:

What do you mean you have to many "in1's" assigned to component and HDMI???? ...

...I only have in1 to HDMI/DVD and in1 to Component/Video 1...
Are this connection from DVD player to AVR???? .... if that's the case, you only need to use the HDMI to HDMI/DVD ... you don't need to connect anything to Video 1.

Using HDMI will transfer Audio/Video to AVR, and the HDMI cable from AVR to TV will also carry Audio/Video to TV :yes::yes:

You're correct using an optical from TV to AVR (TV/SAT, etc..) this will carry any sound from TV, (it doesn't matter if is from regular antenna, VCR (if you have one), DVD, etc.) ... :T

Hope this helps and I didn't make you :dizzy:
