Can't get the Samsung HT-z310 Home Theater to stay on AUX2
Our setup is as follows: DVR/Cable box to TV HDMI1 DVD/Home theater to TV HDMI2 DVR/Cable box audio out to Audio IN on DVD/Home Theater. (so we can listen to the cable audio through home theater system)
We turn on the cable box, turn on the TV and set it to HDMI1. Then we turn on the Samsung Theater and set its function to AUX2. A few moments later the Samsung switchs to DVD function and the TV auto switchs to HDMI2. Once it switchs over, we reselect HDMI1 on the TV and AUX2 on Home theater... 5-10 seconds later the Samsung switchs to DVD function and the TV auto switchs to HDMI2.
What do we need to do to keep the Home Theater set to AUX2??

You have a cabling and/or setup issue and need to check your hardware manuals (or find them online) for instructions.
I have a Samsung HT-C550, a DirecTV satellite box, a Vizio 37" HDTV, a Sony 5-disk DVD player and a Vizio Blu-Ray DVD player, all peacefully co-existing (with the use of a bunch of cables as well as a Logitech Harmony 700 universal remote).
The TV (not the home theater) controls the use of the TV speakers.
There are multiple options to get this to work. I run an HDMI cable from the sat box to the TV. (HDMI sends audio & video to the TV). I then run an optical cable from the TV to the CT550 and use the "D-In" setting to get the sound to play.
Instead of the optical cable from TV to CT550, you can run audio from the sat/cable box directly to the CT550 using (red/white) RCA cables from the "audio out" jacks on the sat/cable box to the "AUX1" or "AUX2" inputs on the CT550"
I submitted an earlier request trying to determine why surround sound wasn't coming through all speakers when playing my TV.
Looking further into the Samsung site I found out that you MUST connect the optical cable from the home theater unit to the CABLE BOX and not to your TV to get surround sound...I'm currently in the office but will change the connection once home...try connecting to your CABLE BOX instead of your TV and it should resolve the problem.
