    scousemumble....

    I get surround sound when playing the radio and DVD player but only hear front speakers when watching TV. I'm using an HDMI cable and an optical cable. I just recently moved and can't recall one special tweak that's required to get surround to work with TV. I have the ability to use amynet but didn't use it with my old connection setup, and can't recall whether I needed it initially setup to access a required menu. Banging my head against the wall here so, any help would be greatly appreciated.

All,

I submitted an earlier request trying to determine why surround sound wasn't coming through all speakers when playing my TV.

Looking further into the Samsung site I found out that you MUST connect the optical cable from the home theater unit to the CABLE BOX and not to your TV to get surround sound...I'm currently in the office but will change the connection once home...try connecting to your CABLE BOX instead of your TV and it should resolve the problem.

First of all, the hdmi cable will only provide video/audio from the dvd player to the television, not visa versa.  Second, for cable/antenna audio playback through your home theater, you need to have an audio cable running from an audio output on the tv to an aux input on the home theater system. Whether you want to use component (RCA) cables or digital (toslink) is up to you, but you must set your home theater system to the appropriate input for it to play the audio signal.
Here's a basic schematic of what your setup should resemble. samsung ht-z310 home theatre audio problem - 220b029.jpg   You must set up your HDMI as well as audio cables from the TV's AUDIO OUT to the home theater's AUX IN/D-In. Once you have them set up, the Ht-Z310t must be set to aux in(for component) or D-In(for toslink), using the function key.

IS THE ONLY CONNECTION BETWEEN YOUR TV AND THE HOME CIMEMA RECIVER THE HDMI ? AS TTHE HDMI WILL ONLY PASS INFO FROM THE RECIVER TO THE TV AND NOT VICE VERSA. IF THIS IS THE CASE YOU NEED TO CONNECT THE TV VIA EITHER OPTICAL/DIGITAL OR PHONO LEADS FROM YOUR TV TO AUX INPUT ON THE RECIEVER

Sound from Onkyo CD player well and fine. Then connected the Samsung DVD HT-Z310 to Video3 (L/R audio in, V-in from L/R Audio out and V-out of Samsung) but no sound or nor video on TV? Tried to fix it...


What am I missing here?

There are a lot of models mentioned in this post. What are WE discussing?

* A Samsung HT-Z310 is a Home Theater System.

* An Onkyo TX-DS777 is higher-end AV Receiver that DOES have a Video 3 input which accepts composite video and analog audio.

* An Onkyo CD player is irrelevant to the TV sound in any scenario.

* Unnamed TV.

I don't see any path in your narrative that would carry audio TO the TV. Is there an unmentioned HDMI cable in here somewhere? I see no other audio outputs on the HTZ.

Are you running the HT-Z310 through an Onkyo receiver to somewhere (?) else?

The fewer hops and inteconnects a given signal experiences between its source and your senses, the better. I always run the BEST video from any source to the TV first; the best Audio to the BEST audio electronics. If that helps.

The audio will not play through the tv from the home theatre unit


because you do not have the dvd player hooked up to the tv, if you want it to play through the tv then you need to have the dvd player connected to the tv.

have you connected the optical cable. as the only way to get sound from the tv to the surround is via that link. the hdmi cable only send video and audio to the tv not both ways for some reason.
