HDMI or Optical best for TV audio?


They are basically the same as both are digital. The advantage of HDMI is that you get video and audio over just one cable.

I hooked up a new lg hd tv via hdmi through my digital cable box. I am not receiving true surround sound, only dolby II. I have my box digitally hooked up to the receiver and the HDTV digitally hooked up...


It's possible that the TV broadcast isn't in true surround, and is only dolby encoded.
You can try going back to the component hookups, but I am not sure that will solve your issue.

CANT GET MY TV TO WORK WITH DVD PLAYER


Connecting a DVD player to your stereo receiver (or television, if you don't have a receiver) involves making two basic connections: audio and video.
Audio
The first connection to make is for the audio portion of the signal. There will be several options depending on the receiver you have.
  • The best choice (if available) is either to use an optical (also called Tos-link) or coaxial (RCA) digital connection. These two choices are equal in quality. In order to use either of these, you will need to have both an output on the DVD player, and an input on the receiver. Only receivers with built-in Dolby Digital decoders will have this type of input.

  • If your receiver does not have a built-in Dolby Digital or DTS decoder, but is "Dolby Digital ready," look for the 5.1-channel Dolby or 5.1-channel DTS. This connection involves six cables, corresponding to different speaker channels: left front, center front, right front, left rear, right rear and subwoofer.

  • The last option to connect the two components is with analog RCA outputs. This is a two-cable connection, with one cable delivering the left speaker sound, and the other cable delivering the right. This connection will deliver only stereo sound, but it may be your only option if you are hooking up directly to a television, or if you have an old receiver with only two channels.
Now let's take a look at the video connection.
  • The best quality choice is to use component connection. This connection consists of three cables: color-labeled red, blue and green. The quality is superb. However, these connections only exist on extremely high-end receivers and television sets.

  • The next option is s-video. One cable connects the DVD player to the receiver in this setup.

  • The last option, similar to the audio setup, is to use the analog RCA video output, usually color-labeled yellow on both ends. This will deliver the lowest quality, but will suffice for most older, analog televisions.

Hookup diagram for Yamaha avr-863 receiver


It's the other way around.

Hook up the Cable box to the Amp; and the blu-ray to the amp, then connect amp to LCD.

you want to use the best available options for audio:
HDMI > Digital Optical > Digital Coax > standard RCA

And the similar for video:
HDMI > Component > SVideo > RCA cables

I would connect Blu-Ray via HDMI to Amp, and Cable box via HDMI to Amp. If your cable box does NOT support HDMI, but you have an HD package, ask your cable company for an upgraded box.

RCA RT2280 surround sound mode button wont select 5.1 dolby digital mode.


I had the same problem and this is what I did to fix it. Assuming that all of your equipment is powered on, (tv, blu-ray/dvd, rca receiver) you'll need to go into your dvd players audio menu and select the dolby digital audio.
Once you do this, the digital signal is sent to your receiver from the dvd. The receiver should automatically set itself to the dolby digital preset. If it doesn't, press the surround button until you reach it. I found part of this information here. And the rest was personal experience.
Also, it depends on if the disc format is in dolby 5.1. I hope this helps you.

Hook up your Xbox to a Dolby Digital Decoder


Xbox® is the first and only game console to support in-game Dolby® Digital 5.1 surround sound. This lets you experience all the game sounds from your home theater system in full 5.1 surround. Before you get started, make sure you've got the following: A digital audio output. A free optical digital input on your receiver. An optical digital audio cable. Digital Audio Output Your Xbox didn't come standard with a digital audio output, but you're gonna need one for this to work, so hightail it to the store for the Advanced AV Pack or High Definition AV Pack, both of which have digital audio outputs. Microsoft makes both of them. You can also buy third-party AV cables for Xbox?but make sure they have a digital audio output. Free Optical Digital Input For this slammin' sound system to work properly, you need at least one free optical digital input on your receiver. Ready to Hook It Up? Let's Go! Connect the digital audio output to your Xbox. Connect one end of the optical digital audio cable to the digital audio output on your Xbox and the other end to the optical digital input on your receiver. Turn on your Xbox with no disc in the disc drive. In the Xbox Dashboard, select Settings. Select Audio. You will see an Audio Mode screen that shows Dolby Digital and DTS status. Select Dolby Digital. You will see the question "Does your stereo system support Dolby Digital Audio?" Select Yes. You will see Dolby Digital Enabled in the audio screen. Your Xbox is now ready for Dolby Digital gameplay. Insert a game disc and play!
