Audio problems with DVD on surround system

The system is hooked and the audio cables are plugged in correctly. The TV sound is fine but when you play DVD's you only hear background music and voices. The main character voices are very faint and hard to hear. The volume goes from -82kb to 0 kb. We can't seem to make it go past 0 to get it into the positive zone. I didn't know if this was normal or not. There is nothing in the manual about this, we've called Panasonic for tech support and continue to get disconnected. I have checked all the audio settings on the system. The speaker for the TV is turned off so you can hear the Tv through the sound system. I'm completely stuck. Please help. Tina

Re: Audio problems with DVD on surround system

- 82k  ^  0k  is normal   it is called consumer output. when you go into the + zone   that is studio grade pro audio.  so this is not your problem... i think  either you have a bad output or bad speakers...... try some other speakers,but careful !  not to blow them with loud volume  if they are not set up for this unit.  hope i could help   also try other on board sound settings when trying other speakers       imanfix

Hi how do I get surround sound coming from my tv

A Samsung home theatre system can make watching movies at home like going to the theater. Proper setup is essential to get the full benefit of the Samsung system, which is available in 5.1 and 7.1 channel surround sound configurations.
Typically the final step in setting up any home theater is connecting your TV to your system.
Like most home theatre systems, your Samsung home theater receiver will allow you to plug all of your components into it, meaning you only have to run a few cables to connect your television to your system.
Make sure your playback devices are properly connected to your receiver.
Whatever playback devices you use, make sure they are plugged into the appropriate inputs on your receiver.
DVD and Blu-ray players, satellite boxes and cable boxes should all be plugged into video inputs, and CD players should be plugged into audio inputs.
Your receiver will have labels on the back panel indicating into which input you should plug your devices.

Connect the video out to your TV's video input. Make sure you use the correct cable to make the connection. For newer receivers, the connection will likely be either HDMI or component.
If your receiver has an HDMI output, use an HDMI cable to connect the receiver to the HDMI input on your TV.
If your receiver uses a component output, use a component cable to connect your receiver to the component input on your TV.

Connect the audio output of your TV to one of the audio inputs on your Samsung receiver if you want to output your television's audio through your home theatre system.
Most recent TVs will either use an optical cable or a digital coaxial cable to connect to the receiver, allowing you 5.1 channel surround from your television.
If you have an older set, you will likely have to use standard RCA cables.

Turn on your receiver and press the "Setup/Menu" button on your receiver's remote.
When "Input" appears on the display, press the right arrow key on your remote to select TV from the list.

After selecting TV, press the up or down arrow keys on your remote to select the audio input jack into which you have plugged your TV's audio cable.
Press the "Exit" button on your remote to exit the setup menu and lock in the settings.

If you're not an electronics junkie, hooking up your surround sound can seem daunting.
There are so many wires and settings that it's understandable why some people might rather pay someone else to do it for them.
But you can do it yourself as long as you make sure the speakers are positioned correctly; the wires are not only plugged in all the way, but plugged into the right places; and the settings on your television and amplifier are set up correctly.

Check to make sure your surround-sound speakers are correctly installed.
Locate the test function on your surround-sound remote control or amplifier panel to do this.
You will know your speakers are hooked up if sound comes out of each speaker during the test.
Make sure your audio cables are hooked up properly.
Make sure the audio cables running from your television to your amplifier are plugged in correctly. The red and white wires should be plugged into the "Audio Out" spot on the back of your television.
Those same red and white audio wires should be plugged into one of the "Audio Input" spaces on the back of your amplifier.

Turn on your television.
Locate the "Menu" button on either your television remote or your television set.
Scroll through your options until you find "Audio Mode" or a similar naming convention.
Select it.
Scroll through your options until you find "Digital Audio Out," or a similar naming convention. Choose it.
Scroll through your options until you find "Dolby Digital Out." Select that option.
Power your surround-sound system on.
Make sure you have the correct audio input selected.
After the correct audio input is selected, make sure you actually have the Dolby Digital aspect of your surround sound system turned on.
The default for most surround-sound systems is the standard two-channel, stereo output.

IM tryin to hook up my samsung home theater system to my philips tv. It works when watching dvd, but when i switch to my basic tv cable it doesnt play sound out of my surround sound speakers. How can i...

Check what type of Audio input it has on it. It should either have an Optical Audio input(glowing red while unit is turned on) or an Audio input(red and white jacks) You would run the correct cable from the Audio Output on your tv, To the Audio Input on your surround sound reciever. Let me know if this helps solve your problem.

You can check your dvd player for a coaxial or an optical sound output, then you can plug it directly to your receiver. Those two are the best options after HDMI. Another option is A/V RCA type cable, you´ll need 3 stereo A/V wires, in order to connect the 6 channels. Remember to uncheck the HDMI sound output option on the DVD menu.

I cant figure out how to get my playstations 3's audio to play through my koss surround sound

Hook your video source up to the display (TV), and run your audio cables to an input on your surround sound receiver. Note which input the audio cables are hooked up to and set the surround sound receiver to that channel on the front of the receiver. For example, if you hook up the audio inputs to "AUX" in, then make sure you select "AUX" on the front of the receiver. If you hook up the audio input to "DVD" on rear of receiver, make sure you select "DVD" on the front of the receiver. The connections on the rear of the receiver have to match the selection on the front of the receiver. Make sure that the cables are hooked up to "INPUT" on the surround sound receiver. It doesn't matter how the inputs are labeled (DVD, AUX, etc.) they all do the same thing. Check volume and mute controls on receiver as well. I know it sounds trivial, but sometimes it's the little things that get overlooked and cause problems. I hope this helps and good luck.

connect audio cables from the audio out jacks on your tv to the audio in jacks on your samsung surround. they may be labeled video 1,2 or aux. if your using a cable box the cable box may have optical or digital input jacks. your samsung surround should have a digital in jack which requires an optical cable.

Problem getting home theatre sytem to play audio when watching tv

you need the red and white audio cable hooked into the AUDIO OUT connectors on the tv and the other end of the red and white cables into the AUDIO IN in tv to the media center (main Bose unit).....If your tv does not provide AUDIO OUT connectors, you cannot connect the tv audio to the 3-2-1 system. Continue using your tv speakers for sound.

How do I get my tv to play through the surround sound

If you have direct cable into the television, you will need to use an audio output if available on the back of your set into your HT system.

If you are using cable w/ a cable box you have two options. You can still connect everything directly into the TV then reroute the audio to the HT system... or, you could hook only video to the TV and audio from the cable box to the HT system. Really up to you.
