For some reason the surround sound only works when i'm playing a cd. When i use an rca to stereo cable from my computer, the rear speakers cut out. Is that supposed to happen. The rear speakers don't play when the radio is on either.

Re: Surround Sound Speakers and AUX
You have the mode selector for the surround sound on the wrong switch setting. Look at the owners manual to see what setting you need for synthensized suround. Go to http://www.samsung.com if you need an owners manual. You will find it with a little bit of searching. Good Luck

For a simple stereo connection If you have a spare set of inputs (CD, AUX, video but NOT Phono/LP) on your receiver, preamp or whatever makes your speakers make noise that accept a pair of red/white RCA type inputs connect the OUTPUT of either your cable box, satellite receiver or TV audio Left & Right (red & white RCA jacks) to the INPUT of your receiver. If your cable or satellite receiver has a digital OUTPUT (either optical or coaxial) and your receiver has a like INPUT and 5.1 surround sound capability you can connect that to give you a surround sound mix.
Possible that the connection to the AUX does not activate if you are using RCA inputs. Connect the DVD using the optical cable or the coaxial link and it must play better with surround and subwoofer in DTS.
If you are playing a source that is Stereo such as FM Radio or a CD the sound will not use all 5.1 speakers unless you enable the correct Surround Mode. On the remote there is a button on the lower right of the remote that says SURROUND. You can toggle through the various surround modes with this button the mode you want is Dolby Pro Logic The Pro Logic mode uses the built-in circuit to steer the Left, Center, Right and Mono Surround channel audio signals and uses all five speakers to play both stereo and Dolby Pro Logic program source, such as TV and VCR. You can use this mode with any stereo program source (such as VCR/TV) to enjoy multi-channel sound experience.
Not sure how you're hooked up or what model TV you're using. If you mean the TV sound through RCA cables is the source and you're wondering why it's not surround. Well, it's not multichannel. Please fill in some details.
This particular model doesn't have internal speakers. It has two removable external speakers mounted on the left and right side of the tv. If you didn't get the external speakers with the tv, you won't have sound unless you use a surround sound setup.
You will not get 'surround sound' from this set only stereo sound. The Video/Aux jack at the back of the unit is an input terminal. You can connect the audio part of your TV(if it has a Line Out jack), dvd player or video game console to this input to get the sound through the stereo system. Use a male-to-male RCA cable to make the connection, they are color coded (Red and White). Press the "Video/Aux" button to select the input terminal.
A few questions...
What components are involved?
How are they connected?
Can you hear sound from the speakers for any other input device i.e. radio, cd, vhs, etc.?
I suspect that there is an issue with the way the system is connected.
I have the Surround sound output from my DVD player connected to the digital surround sound input on my reciever.
I'm using digital coax cable (looks like a "normal" RCA cable), not the optical fiber connection. I had to buy a special cable for the digital surround sound. A normal RCA cable would not work. I don't know why. If you're using a similar connection, that could be your issue.
make sure that the output and inputs you're using are compatible. A digital surround sound connection (in or out) can't be connected to an analog connector (in or out). Remember, Digital to Digital with a Digital capable cable; Analog to Analog with an Analog capable cable.
If this is not your issue, post back here with more info and we'll see what we can figure out.
Ensure that there are no conductive material's (metallic thread, fine wire such as shielding braid)near your Aux inputs that may be shorting your connections. You could also try using an emory board or fine sand paper, or even a pot scrubber on your inputs and RCA plugs in case it's just simply dirty and hampering the connectivity.
