I have the Samsung 61" DLP HDTV and the Samsung Blu-ray BD-P1500 and the Onkyo HT-R500 receiver. I have the TV connected via HDMI (HDMI 3/DVI) to my HD DVR from my cable company and the Blu-ray player connected to the TV as well (HDMI 1). I have a fiber optic connection from the receiver to the Blu-ray (since the P1500) does not have digial coax ouput for connection to the receiver. With Speaker A button pushed, and all my speakers are wired, the only sound I get from my 5.1 channel system is static from the front right and front left speakers so I know there is a connection. When I try to listen to the DVD Player (which was working without the receiver as a Stereo only-mode), I had sound but now that the 5.1 channel system is connected, there's no sound while watching a DVD nor can I hear anything with my CD Player which is connected with standard red/white RCA cables.

Any advice on how to get the sound or what "settings" I am missing?

Thanks

No sound on my sharp aquos lc-45gd4u 45 in


Assuming you are using the internal speakers, check and make sure you have the audio enabled. Some TV sets have a option to turn off the internal speakers. Also make sure mute isn't turned on. If you are using external audio setup, double check your connections.

I'm trying to hook up a sharp aquos tv to an rca surround sound receiver and it won't work? any suggestions? I have tried turning off the speakers on the tv....


First thing to do is get the owner manual for each and start checking both settings and actual hookup---usually a surround system will work on all types of sets---when in doubt read the owner manuals.

If need either manual Google that model number with "manual" to try to locate it.

As far as the set goes it may require either a variable audio output source or in some cases the out to be a fixed level.

Yes, and no. You can connect the HDMI cable from the DVD player to your television for audio and video, but you will not get true surround sound as designed by dolby or dts.

Surround Speakers will not work


Perhaps you have the live wire in the wrong connector from the speakers? They should be color coded. I would check that first. And if you have moved, they are most likely in different positions, you'll have to rerun the audio setup for the surround sound. You should have a separate microphone to use for that that plugs in to the system.

Rear surround speakers quit working from my Onkyo


It looks like the audio output was changed on the player so that it doesn't output 5.1. Enter the setup menu on the player and change DTS to output DTS instead of what be labled as stereo or L/R and Dolby Digital to output Dolby Digital instead of whatever else it is set to.

External speaker hook-up possibility


Yes, its absolutely possible. You can connect external speakers from analog output of TV. Even you can use AV receivers available in the market which can be used to amplify OR process the tv sound with latest digital processing techniques, it would be very much pleasant than the sound from tv.

Speaker distortion on SHARP 37" Aquos Hi Def


When you are changing channels you are using the tuner of the sat reeiver. the tv does not know you are changing a channel . It is just receiving a constant signal from the SAT receiver. I would suspect a problem with the receiver. Try another one first .

Garbled / feedback sounds from powered subwoofer


The surround processing portion of the unit has a problem. In either stereo or direct mode, the digital procesing is bypassed. This could be just the surround processing IC, but that IC may not be available as a separate part. I would suggest that you bring this unit to an authorized Onkyo service center for an estimate.

Connecting TV and DVD for surround sound


HDMI is fantastic in that's the only thing you need to plug in to get what you want.
You'll need two of them however. Plug one end of the HDMI cord into the HDMI "OUT" on the dvd player and the other end of it to the receiver..labeled HDMI 'IN' Then, take the second cord and do that step with the receiver back to your big screen...HDMI OUT to IN.
Surround sound from TV sources only needs a L&R audio cable connected to the receiver input labled TV or MONITOR audio IN. Unless you'd like 5.1 dolby digital or DTS from the television that requires devices that you haven't mentioned owning. In that case you will be able to get Dolby ProLogic and Pro Logic II from stereo broad casted sources on your TV.
