Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I've hooked up my LG 47" 1080p widescreen to a LG HE903PAW audio receiver / 5 disc dvd player with upscaling capabilities. I have tested the speaker system and everything's connected properly. Currently, I have a digital cable box running through the TV via component cables. I also have a ps3 and an xbox 360 connected via hdmi. I'm running the audio for all three through the TV, which is connected to the receiver via an optical cable. Here's the problem. 1. If the audio receiver is set as anything other than Dolby Pro Logic 2, I only get 2 channel sound from the front left and right speakers, including the sub. 2. If it's on Dolby Pro Logic 2, I get full surround, but the volume has to be maxed out, and the volume is still mediocre. I can't imagine this is the quality the system is supposed to produce. I've tried adjusting the decible level for the rear and centre speakers, but it doesn't seem to make much difference. I've also tried running the audio directly from the ps3 to the receiver, instead of through the TV, and it makes no difference. Please advise.

    I recently bought the same TV with a Yamaha sound system and have been having trouble getting sound to produce from the PS3. The PS3 has an HDMI connector going to the TV and I get picture but no sound. Isn't HDMI supposed to be for sound and video?? I am suspicious that only by hooking up an optical cable to my reciever from the PS3 will I be able to get sound going.



    Unless someone has an alternative or can clarify does HDMI do sound AND video?

I was talking with LG on virtually the same problem. I have a samsung blu-ray player hooked up via HDMI. Even though the blu-ray is outputting 5.1, 6.1 or 7.1, the LG is only outputting 2 channel unless you switch to pro logic. LG states that this is a known problem and that you are to return the system to where you bought it for a replacement. Call the 1-800 number and they should give you the same answer.

I am trying to hook up my Pioneer vsx-455 to a LG LED LCD TV. I am not sure on how to do this and I can not find a manual anywhere. Can you help me?


your reciever does not have hdmi, so the audio is not going to be true DD+ or DTS for broadcast tv.

if your dvd/blue ray player has digital optical spdif, this can be used to transfer the encoded DD+/DTS digital audio.

the besat way to run your tv audio through the reciever is to hook up the dvd/blue ray player up with (perferrably) digital optical spdif, composite spdif or (least favorably) through the stereo stereo analog inputs on the reciever for "dvd" audio in and hook the video from the dvd/blue ray up to the corresponding "dvd" video component input on the reciever.

this way is only going to get your dvd/blue ray sound, next you need to hook up your cable box to the reciever so that you can get broadcast tv sound. hook up the cable box audio to the "tv" stereo analog audio ins, and hook the video to the corresponding "tv" video component inputs.

the component video inputs have separate jacks for red, green and blue ( labeled "Y" "Pb" and "Pr") and are capable of carrying a 1080p full hd signal. use the component video outputs on the reciever to output the video signal to a component video input on the tv, using the receiver's input selector to change the video source.

I have a LG home theatre system model HT963TA(HT963TA,SH93TA-S/CW) THE DVD PLAYER "BLACKS OUT " FOR SHORT PERIODS OF TIMES INTERMITANTLY.I TRIED CHANGING THE HDMI CONNECTION AND ALSO CHECKED THE DVD'S ON...


I have this problem too.If you set the DVD player resolution to 480p instead of 1080p it will not have the blackouts anymore. Of course this defeats the whole purpose of buying an "upscaling" DVD player. Just curious: what TV's are-you using?

If it is me and I am spending that kind of money, it is going to be sick, os here is sick. 7.1 dolby surround and 1080P HDMI, 135W per channel, and right now if you go to FRYS.com, it is normally $500.00 bt for right now it is only $449.00. But if you put this in, be prepared to buy a PS/3 as your next investment (Th best way to get Blu-RaY at an affordable price, plus many other features) and an upconvert DVD layer, which is only about $100.00 or less today. Then you better get ready to hear from your neighbors and the cops, because they are going to think a war has broken out in your place. Enjoy, I play movies that the sound is just so realistic, I hate to leave the house anymore. Also, remember, speaker placement is key, so know the optimal environment for your system and if you need one, I may be able to hook you up with a system room tuning DVD for next to nothing. This will allow you to setup your system and place your speakers optimally for your environment. good Luck.

No video


I am not sure if you have gone into the Receivers Menu or not? If you have NOT! Then please try this: Go into the Receivers Menu (If you do not see the MENU on the TV you can hook up a Composite (Yellow) Cable from the Receivers Monitor Out (Yellow) and select the Input on the TV that you plug into) Look in the Menu for Inputs or In/Out Config. or Video Setup. Look for the Input that you are using for that Device. Change the Video setting to HDMI. I also recommend doing this for you Audio as well. Find the Audio Inputs and MATCH each Input to there DEVICE and CABLE (Connection) Being used. Also check in the Receiver Menu for UPSCALE or UPSCALER. Turn this on or off to see if your TV is Compatible! Hope This Helps! P.S. Check the Manual for Upscaling Capabilities NOT all Receivers upscale and route the SAME!

Does not play multichannel audio (5.1) input through optical digital audio


Hi try this.

in the dvd player make sure you just leave it default (bitstream) but in the home theater receiver don't select 5.1 b/c that will only give you a virtual 5.1 not a true 5.1. In fact don't select any sound field at all just select dolby digital or dts depending on the source of the movie then you should be ok.

The only other problem i can see is that hdmi sends both the sound and picture to the tv. You will need to see if there's a function on the dvd player to only send the picture via hdmi and the sound via the optical out of the dvd player.

good luck
