Sc-pt660 + 46pz85u = NO SOUND!

I have the Panny Home Theater sc-pt660, Pany HDTV 46pz85u and Comcast cable box. I can get the sound from the DVD to play through ome Theater speakers, but I canot get the TV to make a peep through speakers. How do I set up to make this happen using the listed components. Also I need some advice on using Viera link between these components. The DVD and HDTV are connected with HDMI. HDTV and cable box connected with coax cable.

Thanks in advance.

    Thanks SFroese!



    Are you saying just run the HDMI cable from the DVD to the TV and run audio components cable from Comcast box to TV since Comcast box is not HD and does not have HDMI? Will this force all audio to go through Home Theater instead of TV?



    Any hints on getting TV Viera remote to operate DVD Home Theater?

Hi,

I'm having the same problem as wwinters. I have a HDMI cable going from my Panasonic TV to the comcast cable box. I also have a HDMI cable going from the TV to the Home Theater system.

From the comcast cable box, I have regular audio cables going to the Home Theater system.

While playing an DVD or CD, I have sound coming out of all of the speaks; however, when the TV is on there is sound only coming out of the front left speaker.

Could you please explain in Laymen's language what I might have done wrong or what I might try.

Regards,

Laurie

Don't worry about sending the TV audio to the Panasonic. Just send a digital audio signal from the cable box to the Panasonic.

DVD - Panasonic connected via HDMI
TV - Panasonic connected via HDI
cable connected to cable box and TV. But you will not really be using the cable connection to the TV (TV Tuner) since you will want HD feed from cable box through HDMI input on TV.

You aren't concerned about feeding the TV speakers because your audio will always come from the home theatre.

Note that some components don't feed audio through HDMI, in which case you will need to use optical digital audio.

    No, I am saying run the audio from comcast to the home theater (assuming the comcast box has HD). the only thing is you will have to run digital or optical cables between the cable box and the home theatre to get surround sound. You shouldn't bother running audio from the comcast to the TV, since the TV doesn't give you surround sound.



    I don't know about how to program the remote, but I'm sure comcast will have it on their website. I am in Canada, so we don't use comcast up here in our igloos :)

I need help , hooking up my samsung HT-Z410 HOME THEATER, TO MY LG HDTV, SO THAT WHEN I'M WATCHING REGULAR TV THE SOUND OF THE TV CAN COME OUT TRUE THE HOME THEATER SPEAKERS, CAN IT BE DONE? CAN A COMCAST...


first of all here is a link to the manual....http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200802/20080220095448484_HT-Z410-XAA.pdf and yes it can be conected thru your comcast but you wil need to buy probably cheapest at wallmart an RF Modulator (Less than 20 dollars) and from your cable box (vidieo out, or to tv) install the cable to the rf mod unit (ant in) and that converts it from coaxial cable to rca (meaning a cord with yellow ,red,white push on connectors) plug the red and white into aux input on surround system (see #3 on manual view on backside of surround unit)and and you got it.It your tv does not have a yellow vidieo connection (which is where the the yellow plug into tv)in the back then add a coaxial splitter after the comcast box so that the 1 coax line goes to tv and the other coax goes to the rf mod then thru RCA cables to the surround sound.you may need to buy xtra cables but they are cheap. hope i helped........you may try asking family or friends for the above equipment i described.the newer tv's dont need it and many people have this stuff layen around...good look

No surrond sound


TV's are not sources of multichannel audio. The best you'll get is stereo analog. Get the best TV-related audio from the same source the TV gets it - in this case the Cable Box.

How do i hook this up to high def cable box


If your Hi Def Cable box has an Optical Input ( D Shaped with a red light shining through) then you can get a "Toslink" Optical cable to join it to the home theatre- full 5.1 sound if it is enabled on the cable box. These cords are fragile - handle with care don't kink them. I've seen these cords up to 5metres in length
Happy Shopping!

Blu ray connect to my sc-pt660


as far as hooking up your blu ray player to the sc-pt660, the only real way to utilize the surround sound (with true surround sound) is through the optical audio out. You need to connect your blu ray player through hdmi to your tv and then connect your blu ray player to your surround sound using the optical audio out/in. I, personally have the sc-pt660 hooked up through component cables so I don't waste an HDMI input on my TV. Except for cd's, there is no reason for you to use the actual dvd player part of the surround sound considering you have a blu ray player. In conclusion, hooking your blu ray player and the sc-pt660 up to get better video simply isnt possible (your blu ray player alone gives the best possible resolution, 1080p). As far as audio goes, run an optical audio cable from your blu ray player to your sc-pt660 to get true surround sound.

Am i getting hdtv with just cable feed?


Depending on your cable provider, some of the HD channels may be present. If so, these are ususally located in the upper channel numbers. It sounds like you are receiving some of the HD lineup. A cable box will probably allow you to view more HD channels including the premium HD channels if you subscribe to them. You should not be noticing a delay with the HD channels only. If this is what you are experiencing without a cable box, then it would be an issue with the HD tuner built into your TV set. LG customer service can let you know if there are any software updates available for yourmodel that can resolve this. Additionally, if you are getting your sound from an Home Theater system then you will notice an echo if using the TV's built in speakers at the same time. This is sometimes mistaken as an audio delay. If you are using a home theater system, be sure to disable the speakers that are built into your system.

Sony Bravia Dav-HDX279W and comcast HDTV Cable box connection.


Like above, use an optical connection (need fiber optic cable) or a coaxial connection (single RCA cable). HDMI might also work, but I personally haven't checked. Connect the audio outs from the cable box to the audio ins on the home theater. The TV will only need a video connection from the cable box, as well as one from the home theater (for DVDs, onscreen menus).

This discussion can help you set up the universal remote.
