Is this the way it's supposed to work?
The "correct" method is a matter of personal taste. The dealer has simply disconnected (or didn't hook up) the "audio out" from the HDTV to the to the Entertainment System...probably because they get too many questions / complaints from users who don't know how to - or don't like to turn on the Entertainment System and select an "input" option just to hear the audio from the HDTV
Personally - I like my HDTV and DVD audio to come through the Entertainment System.....I don't mind the extra step it takes to switch between HDTV and DVD when necessary.....the improved sound quality from the Entertainment System Speakers is worth it.
