How to stop music from playing music while surround sound is on the tv


First make sure the cables around the television and the surround sound system are not damaged. Then make sure the any grounding on the external sheathing of the cable is making good contact and that the braiding is not touching any other cable under the plug. You could try some better aftermarket connecting cables, and the ones that come with systems are used for price cheapness. Keep a space between cables and don't wrap them around each other. If none of that works, get some Ferrite Rings and thread three on each cable to the surround sound system, one at each end of the cable and one in the middle.

Cables with good braiding and gold flashed connectors as shown on this page are an indication of quality.

how to setup an eltax surround system? what exact place do I put them (also behind me)? It contains 4 speakers, 1 sub-w, and 1"tweeter/high range" to put on your tv. I thank You sincerely!


Well, that is pretty dependent on the room size and seating position. Ideally the center channel should be directly under the TV. This is where 90% of the dialog will come from. The two tall speakers should then be placed adjacent to the TV, preferably a couple of feet away. The smaller surround sound speakers should be approximately ear level, to slightly above and behind the viewer. The surround speakers are bipolar, so they will radiate sound out of each side, therefore you do not need to "angle' them towards the listener. The sub woofer doesn't really matter, the bass frequencies are non-directional. I like to hide it under a table or something like that.
Some new receivers have built in surround set up programs that will send a test signal to each speaker and "listen" then adjust the delay and volume accordingly. Without that it will take some trial and error to get any system dialed into the perfect settings. Then what may be ideal for one specific location will sometimes not sound as good from another in the same room.
Good Luck.

No sound thru surround sound system in TV Mode


Hi,
You need to connect your TV to the AUX connection in the back of your HT system. Then set your HT system on AUX 1 and wait about 5 seconds for the TV sound to come through. If it does not work on AUX 1, you may have to try on AUX 2 or AUX 3 settings on your HT system. Make sure the A/V cable you use is good and in working order and is a good quality cable.
Hope that helps, Gary
