Question about Sony DAV-S888 System

Open Question

Limited sound from Pc to surround sound.

Ive got my pc connected up to my surround sound. When I play a movie from my pc to my surround sound, it will only play from my right speakers.

The wire coming from my sound card splits into a red connector and a yellow one. When I put the red connector into the red socket (L-Sound in) the sound comes out of the left speakers. But when I put the yellow connector into the white socket (R-Sound in) There is just music coming from the left still. If I put the red into the R-sound in, the music changes speakers as I thought.

When the connectors are connected into the red into red and the yellow into white, if i change the surround setting to say live concert, the sound comes from both speakers.

I have also tried a sound test from creatives speaker set up and it only says there is sound coming from the left speakers.


Any help would be muchly appreciated.
Alex.

Fishboy,
My thoughts would be that it is either a conection or setup problem. Chech these first to eliminate them.

SOURCE: Sony center speaker and rear speakers don't work all the time

try using another speaker for the center channel and the left speaker, also watch your ohm load, most of the want a 4 ohm load. try to narrow it down to see if it is the speaker or the amp.

I connected my DELL MINI Inspirion 10 via HDMI to LCD TV. have a good pic, but haven any sound (can play movie, but nothing voice). Check everything, no find problem. Can u help me?


Hi
HDMI is only used for Video output and not for sound, you will have to use your laptop audio out (has a pic of headphones), you are able to get headphone jack to phono (white / Red) cable to connect to TV or surround sound system or your laptop speakers.

Proscan tv surround sound hook up


This depends on whether you have digital cable box or not. If you have a Digi Cable Box look for the red/white RCA output and connect this via RCA cable to the Red/White Audio input on your surround.

If just Basic Cable look for a red/white audio output on the back of your televison. connect this to the Red/white in on your surround. Could be called tv in or auxillary.

are you trying to use the surround sound for movies or music ? , ive got the dvd version of this system (sc-dv290) and ive noticed the surround sound tends not to perform well with music , but sounds great with movies. i think its because the movies have dolby digital and music does not. The dolby pro logic in my opinion doesnt really make that much of a difference in sound unless the sound is cranked up past 44db on the amplifier. the only cables you need are the ones that are attached to the surround sound speakers and they cannot be removed so it cant be the wiring . I reckon you have a 1 - faulty system 2 - listening to music 3 - maybe not pressing the pro logic button on the sound processor. Hope this helps

Movie freezes, skips.


Does sound like the laser. Realitically, not worth repairing. I'd say you'd be worth connecting a cheap DVD player to the system - then the Sony can carry on providing the surround sound audio and the new DVD player can provide the video. Then, if the cheap DVD player is still going, it can move to a bedroom TV if and when you replace the surround system....

Otherwise, I would imaging the speaker set (and even the non-working DVD player) on its own might fetch a reasonable price on an auction site - anyone who has a stolen DVD unit will probably be desparate for the speakers as Sony don't sell them separately!

Playback movie pictures or sound


Movie pictures can be played back with the camera, but not sound. However, when the camera is connected to a TV, both movie pictures and sound can be played back. For playing back movie pictures or sound on a PC, the QuickTime™ 4 is required.
