HDMI Audio Bypass Mode

During normal HDMI operation, with an HDMI input selected for listening, the DSM will not pass audio to the HDMI output and any attached HDMI downstream devices (TV, for example).

Audio is only passed to the HDMI output when the DSM is in HDMI Audio Bypass Mode. This mode can be activated either by entering sleep/standby mode or by selecting a non HDMI input for listening.
