As far as I know, this unit does not have vista drivers. I'm dealing with the same issues. I currently have it wired in via midi.

I just purchased a roku streaming stick HDMI. I'm suppose to plug it into the surround sound HDMI (in) and then plug another HDMI (out) to the TV. The problem is, the receiver only has 1 HDMI port (ou

I hear you. Don't modern, inexpensive products just tick you off? Here's the solution. You leave it plugged into the the TV in HDMI 2. Because the receiver only has an HDMI out connection, you will have to use the digital output from the TV(usually an Optical cable), and plug it into any input on the receiver that has an Optical input. When you switch to that input on the receiver, you should be set, however, if you still have no sound, most AV receivers have assignable inputs. You may have to go to the audio menu on the receiver, and reassign that particular input as digital, and not analog. If you need more assistance, it would be best to visit my website at and contact me there.Thank you.

LG blue ray won't play sound from RCA sound bar. HDMI cable is hooked into HDMi slot on TV

the details you provided were very vague, however from my experience when a device is connected to another device via and audio capable hdmi cable, that device renders it audio output to the device its connected to and normally turn off all other audio outputs beside optical- I would assume there is an option in the blue ray player to turn off hdmi audio, which will in turn activate other audio outputs- you may also look for audio out port on your tv, it is ideal to connect the sound bar directly to the tv set audio out ports. To sum this up,
if you plan to use your player via hdmi cable you need to turn off hdmi audio output on the blue ray player and the plug an audio cable from your blue-ray player to your sound bar
you may also as i said connect your sound bar directly to your tv, the issue is most tv sets now a days do not have an audio out port, if you do then everything you play thru your tv will have audio via sound bar
there are several way to go here but unless your sound bar has hdmi av switching capabilities (im sure not) this is one of the most simple--Good Luck.

I have a problem using the usb port in my samsung ht x30. i'm using a 1tb external hd. it says no files. is it becuase the external hd is so big?

The external hard drive is most likely not compatible. In the user manual on pg 62 is a list of "USB Host Feature Supported Products"

Do I need an amp?

Typically no. The device should plug into the wall, and amplify the signal by itself. It should have one or more input RCA jacks in the back for various external devices like VCRs, CD Players or your TV box, and it should have several output ports that the speaker wires and sub woofer plug in to. You shouldn't have to worry about the signal strength or amplifying it.

Just so long as you use the speakers that were designed for the unit. If you decided to use third party speakers with a higher impedance, then you would need an amp.

Have either of you looked at the quick setup instructions in the manual? It would have basic instructions on setting up a simple home theature, and if an amp is necessary, it would be indicated there.
