Question about GE GTD120 System

1 Answer

Surround sound problems.

I've been having some problems with my surround sound on the GTD-120 using external audio inputs (aux1) from my Xbox 360 (and other game consoles). Basically, when I power up the GTD and go into the DVD playback mode, everything works great. However, the second I switch to aux1 (or aux2), I lose everything except the front left and right speakers and the sub. Now, after switching to aux1, upon switching back to DVD, the back and center speakers still are greyed out, and produce little or no sound. I've checked all the connections, and everything is fine (hell, everything works great UNTIL I switch the GTD over to aux). What I'd really like to know is if the GTD 120 even supports dolby 5.1 from the aux ports, and if so, what is my problem and how can I go about fixing it. If it doesn't support 5.1 from the aux ports, then if anyone can suggest another reciever that DOES support 5.1 from the aux ports, for LESS than $150, and is NOT made by GE, that would be great. Thanks

Re: Surround sound problems.

Dolby 5.1 is not supported via either of the Aux inputs. Be sure to check your main menu/audio setup screen to ensure that "stereo" is not selected. If it is, DVD's will not downmix, giving you only 2.1 stereo.

I have an LG LED TV and Samsung 5.1 Surround sound and when it comes to Blu Ray movies I get sound, but I don't get the surround sound through cable or XBOX 360, the only time I do is through the TV when...

the very best and easiest solution is have every input into your tv, and your TVs audio out (RCA/Optical) into your reciever. this is a variable audio (Meaning you can only listen to your reciever with your TVs audio up) or you can turn off the audio completely in your TVs soiund properties.

hope that helped :) -Jordon

Can't get XBOX 360 to have audio through surround sound speaker

Make sure that you have the RC Cables (red and white) plugged into the audio ports that coincides with the component video inputs. If that wont work then try plugging the audio and video cables into the inputs for the satellite, since that works. That way you can isolate the issue. If it still wont work try using the XBOX 360 HDMI cable. That has both audio and video.

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.
