Sharp television and panasonic cinema system with hdmi connection
I have just purchased a panasonic cinema system and a hdmi lead. I already have a sharp flatscreen with a hdmi portal. however when connecting the hdmi cable with the cinema system to television we only receive sound from the scart leads - as when we take out the scart leads no sound is produced from cinema system. The hdmi cable is connected in ext.5 however sound is only registering in ext 1 and 2. SkyTV is connected to ext 1. How do i make the TV to recognise the extension 5 as sound?

Ok, here's the deal. You can have sound being putout from hdmi coming from one of those sharp units, but it just depends on how you are connected. If you are using a digital audio output, from the tv, it wont push out the sound the way that it should. You will have to downgrade to using audio composite cables to connect to your external speaker system from the audio ouputs, not the digital audio outputs. Its not designed to push out sound from an hdmi cable. The BEST way to have this setup is to run your sound directly from the cinema to the external audio source(leaving the hdmi cable in the tv).

Sharp televisions don't work like you need them to when connecting them to a 5.1 sound system. You can connect them with a fiber optic cable from their digital audio out to the sound system's digital audio in BUT when you turn everything on no sound comes out of the sound system. So you start checking connections and troubleshooting, call Sharp, and maybe even call the sound system manufacturer. You may get a customer service representative knowledgeable enough to explain to you that Sharp televisions were designed without center channel capability. This means that the only use for the digital audio out is to get sound from your sound system when watching tv channels when your Sharp television is connected to your rooftop antenna only or directly to basic digital cable with no cable box or satellite tv receiver. Yes I just stated that you only connect the sound system to the Sharp television when you are watching over the air broadcasts or basic digital cable without a cable box.
People say "but that doesn't make any sense." But it is true. Sometimes you will get lucky and connect a Sharp television to the sound system with the fiber optic cable and get sound out of one of the devices you've connected to the Sharp television with an hdmi cable. You will then be directed by the customer service rep to connect all your devices to the sound system and connect them all to the television as well OR connect all your devices to the sound system with hdmi cables and connect the sound system to the television with one hdmi cable.
a good way to go is to connect the home cinema kit staight to the tv though phono leads, see if your tv has a phono in and out this must not be a av socket. you should then connect it in to your cinema kit so what ever you watch comes though ur cinema system
Turn everything off and disconnect from mains. Wait a few minutes. Disconnect HDMI cable. Turn on TV and DVD. Connect cable. If this does not work use a cable of different spec. I had the same problem and now mine works . Good luck. T.P.
