audio to soundbar doesn't work for dvd's and games, but does for Netflix

Can anyone help an old dad out? :)  

My son has an XBox 360, and I have the HDMI out to a monitor, and digital audio out separately to a soundbar. The soundbar also is capable of using RCA. 

He can watch Netflix fine - and on games his headset audio works fine - but I can't get the audio to the soundbar on games or playing dvd's. I've tried each of the setting options - Dolby stereo, 5.1, the other one. On the games, as it's loading and going into the menus there is sound, but when the game actually starts to play, just a buzz. The same for DVD's.

Thanks in advance for any help, and sorry if this is a "Doh....!" solution.
