Re: Attaching a surround sound to a Hitachi 60CX29B
The red green and blue are component video
to get the surround sound to work the red and white audio outputs from the tv go to the audio inputs on the reciever , and to get the digital surround sound the optical also has to be hooked up

This must be configuration problem on the BD player. In this case receiver just outputs the signal it receives digitally. If it displayes PCM 2ch, that means it receives only 2 channel audio from BD player. You can try to configure the BD player not to decode audio and to output the RAW stream over coax cable to the receiver. Then the receiver should get raw Dolby Digital encoded data and be able to decode it into 5.1 channels. It should also display Dolby D instead of PCM in such case.
AM and FM have mute circuit that no signal comes thru antenna (hope you installed external antenna ) no sound generates at all ? with computer terminolgy "garbage in ,garbage out"
Additonally , If this happens on CD,DVD or casette as well
What about speaker selector? A or B ,(based on your speaker wiring ) is properly selected or not?
Optical carries only 5.1 sound, no video. HDMI carries both video and sound. If your receiver doesn't have HDMI, check your TV for optical output. You can go BluRay to TV via HDMI, then TV to receiver via optical.
If you don't have optical out on your tv, you're going to need either a receiver with HDMI or a BluRay player with component output (blue, green, red).
1. Connect cable to cable HD DVR box, connect video out of cable box to Sony receiver TV video in, connect audio L and R out of cable box to Sony receiver TV audio in and connect TV out of receiver to video in of Panasonic projector
2. Connect Audio and Video out of DVD player respectively to DVD in of receiver. Good Luck :)
Do you have set-top-box or antenna-cable directly to TV? You have connected TV with received via HDMI, but that won't work in this direction - TV has HDMI INput only, not output. You can use HDMI to connect HDMI-out on DVD player for example to HDMI-in on receiver and HDMI-out of receiver to HDMI-in on TV. But to get sound from TV to the receiver, use spdif optical or coax cable if TV supports that - this way you will get surround sound. But also your connection via analog white/red RCA plugs should work, but only for stereo sound.
The easiest way is to hook up your DVD/VCR combo directly to the back of your Sharp LCD TV, then run a component audio output from the TV to the audio input in the back of the receiver. Make sure you hook up your front, center and rear speakers correctly to the receiver, then go through with the speaker calibration steps - per manual, then it should work with no problem. Good luck!

The only way your surround sound will work is if you have either the coaxial or fiber optic digital hookups attached to a PS3/Blueray/DVD/Cable box/Satellite box that have digital sound outputs. If you are just using the 1970's version of the red/white audio cables that is stero only.
