Question about Samsung Televison & Video

Open Question

I purchased the Samsung HT-TZ512 home theatre to go with my new Series 6 Samsung LCD TV. I purchased the Samsung home theatre because I wanted to be able to use the "anynet" so I wouldn't have to have so many remotes. I have it hooked up this way HDMI from HD cablebox to television Fiber Optic from HD cablebox to Samsung Home Theater System HDMI from Samsung Home Theater to the television. Something is not working right and I cant figure it out. I know I have to use the cable box remote to change the channels. I tried useing the TV remote only and the TV remote will only turn on the TV, not the home theatre.. Then I use the home theatre remote to turn on the home theatre and when I press the power button it turns on the home theatre but turns off the TV! It is so frustrating. I cant get the home theatre remote to turn the TV on. I can use either remote to shut everything off but not to turn it on. Also when I look at the menu I see under source anynet home theatre. If I choose this source on the TV menu it will turn the home theatre on but not the TV. When I try to turn the TV on with the TV remote it says disconnecting anynet! So what is the point of purchasing a Samsung home theatre if I can't use 1 remote for the 2 devices? Am I doing something wrong? Vicki

SOURCE: hdmi receiver to hd plasma tv

1) I believe the "3 prong" you mean the RCA A/V cable. This cable is color coded red/white/Yellow (Right Audio/Left Audio/Video). This cable is OK for regular TV but when it come to HD, the quality of the picture fall short.

But you also could mean the 3 wires component cable that color coded Green/Blue/Red. If you plug only this without the Red/White for the speaker then you will only see the picture. This component cable help make the pic a lot clearer. But I believe not as good as DVI and HDMI. More info here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_display_interfaces

2) Most universal remote control come with a preset of keys to emulate other remotes. You need to search for the owner manual to figure out how and what code to put to use with a certain device.
Most new Universal remotes has a learning mode too that the user can "teach" the remote to emulate that "IR signal".
Now for the "HOW". It's a little complicated. But here is my 2cents. Most basic remotes has a light in front and this light is Infra Red light. So you don't see the light but it blinks. The blinking is the data of 1 and 0 that computer uses. Most of the time the remote is in sleep mode which uses very little power. One press of the button, it switch on the remote and carry out the performance of that button. The brain of the remote figure out which button was pressed and search in it's memory for the blinking pattern and blinks the light with that pattern and then fall back to sleep.
For the pattern itself, it contain informations. It usually start with the ID of the device that suppose to receive the signal. Follow is the "flag" and then the information of the button that was pressed. Then the final signal is basically say "End" to indicate that the message end. All device within range will get this information but if the ID don't belong to it, it will ignore the entire message.


Hope what I said helped. :D

SOURCE: How do I hook up

Hi evilfan,

If I may add to the postings of Ekse and TampaNative......

Depending on what available cables and connectors that you may have the basic idea is from the cable company in to your Motorola receiver then to your Samsung HT-X50 then to the Sony Wega as below image shows. All other additional devices such as another DVD player or an iPod Nano with Video Dock or anything else would have to be connected to the Samsung.

All external devices would have to be plug in the the different INPUTs as you may decide which is to which. What is important to remember is that everything goes through the Samsung be it incoming or outputs.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: samsung tv

as far as it turning off on its own I would get a fan on it and see if that make a difference make sure that the fan is able to flow around the tv especially through the back of it, if this stops it from turning off then it is an overheating problem

SOURCE: turn off closed caption on input(component) on Sharp Aquos 42"

Had this happen on a Comcast box (Motorola DCT 6416 III)
Here's how to fix it:
Turn the cable box off, leave fully connected. Press Menu on the remote
The cable box internal menu will display (Not the Comcast one the Motorola one-- i.e. Display ratios-16:9 etc It's in black and white)
Use the arrows to cursor to the Closed Captioning and toggle to "Disabled" Press Manu again to exit and Voila!

Power the box on an have at it

Make sure the TV is set to output audio to the digital optical port. Then make sure you have selected the proper output mode on the home theatre. Unplug the optical cable from the back of the home theatre and see if the red laser is on (don't shine it in your eyes! :))

Ipod Hook-up


Ipod's utilize headphone jack style connectors which can be purchased just about anywhere electronics are sold, however most dvd players utilize RCA jacks so you must purchase an adapter from ipod jack to RCA jack it runs usually about $10-25.00 also you can purchase a FM transmitter kit for about the same price but sound quality is not as good so my suggestion is go for rca converter and hook it up to audio input in back of dvd player or stereo for best quality.

I have no surround sound when watching normal T.V


Hi there, in order to listen to t.v you need to purchase an optical cable and plug this in the optical out of the tv to the optical in on the blue ray then select D.IN.1 on the blue ray and press mode on the remote until it says matrix . This will allow you to listen to the t.v through all speakers. hope this helps. Also remember to take the rubber protectors off the ends of the optical cable, a lot of people forget this :)
