Question about Philips LX700 System

3 Answers

I connected optical source toslink to lx700 and have no sound

I connected optical source toslink to lx700 input and have no sound. When increasing or decreasing lx700 volume sound goes up for a moment and then disappears. Coaxial SPDIF connection works fine. Whether it may be the cable issue or something else? The cable was tested on Yamaha receiver at the shop and worked well.

    I have the same problem, too.
    The default setting is coaxial input,
    I don't know how to change the input to optical. The screen always show "coaxial".

    Exactly the same. Coax works fine, toslink gives me nothing from either PS3 or satellite tuner. Optical cable works fine.

    Hi all.



    The issue was settled by replacing damned Tomson cable to brand Philips one!!!



    And before replacing cable check that you have selectet the optical input. Enter a menu by "Programm" button on the front pannel and select "Optical" from "Digital input" option. This is inconvinient because you can't do this by remote control.



    Good luck

Connect tv to surround sound system


Connect a RCA cable from the TV Audio output (red/white)
to the surround sound Audio Input (red White)

If your TV has a "HDMI OUT" and your Surround System has a
"HDMI Input" Then use a HDMI cable instead.
You will need to set the source on your Surround System to
the audio source you use on the surround system(input)
On most it will be TV or Auxiliary.

Connect with componet cables.


The only digital audio input for this TV will be via the HDMI input. Of course, even with HDMI in, you're only going to get a simple stereo output from the TV. You can use the analog L & R audio inputs for a very similar sound from the TV speakers.

The digital multi-channel audio (Dolby Digital, THX, 5.1, 7.1, etc) encoded in the program should be connected to a suitable multi-channel amplifier with either a TOSLINK (optical), RF (coaxial) or HDMI cable for theatre-like sound. This can be done by (a) cabling from the source (DVD, BluRay Disk, Set Top TV Tuner, etc.) directly to a multi-channel amp and speakers, or (b) from the HDMI output of these devices (DVD, BluRay Disk, Set Top TV Tuner, etc.) into one or both of the TV's HDMI inputs. This will provide only stereo sound output from the TV speakers. You should connect the TV's TOSLINK optical "Digital Output" jack with an optical cable to the amplifier's TOSLINK optical input jack to obtain theatre sound.

To listen to the program shown, you would select the amplifier input assciated with the optical, RF or HDMI input that is connected to the source (DVD, BluRay Disk, Set Top TV Tuner, etc.) if connected directly. If the TV HDMI input(s) are used, they are output to the TV optical output and should be connected to the amplifier optical input. The amp input associated with the optical input should be selected to hear the program with theatre-like sound.

What is the opticalout with usage


Hi,
Optical out is Digital Sound output, which is used to connect speakers with Digital Sound input. This port, (also known as SPDIF, TOSLINK), is used to send digital audio from your PC/ television to a sound bar or stereo receiver.The signal is transmitted over either a coaxial cable with RCA connectors or a fiber optic cable with TOSLINK connectors.


Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

As long as your 50 in. LG TV has an Optical Out, and your DVD surround sound receiver has an Optical Input, you can connect the 2 using a Digital Optical TOSlink Cable.

How can I hook up my Bose cinemate on my Philips HD tv when no there is no Audio out and I want to use it for my dvd player, cable box, and video systems?


You don't need to send audio TO a TV. I's a TV, not a source of anything. Many of us use monitors (no TV speakers). The Bose speakers are presumably superior to the TV speakers so whatever the TV is watching (cable/sat/dvd) shuld have its own audio.


Page 11.

If your TV does not have any audio output jacks, you can connect the CineMate™ speaker

system to the audio output jacks of another source, such as a DVD player or cable/satellite

box. However, you will hear sound only from the connected source through your CineMate
speakers.

Dual 2.5 GHz PowerPC G5 sound output


This is just how it works. The headphone jack on Macs is dual-purpose. If you plug in a mini-Toslink cable (like you have) it automatically sends the sound through that & increases the computer's volume to maximum. When you unplug the Toslink, the laser will still shine for a brief moment (but then it does go off). So, there is no way to keep the Toslink plugged-in AND utilize the built-in audio at the same time.
