Question about Sony HTD-DW760 System

1 Answer

Am I forgetting something?

I just bought a new TV and hooked up my old surround system. But it isn't working the same. I used to be able to turn the volume all the way down on the TV and still blast the reciever and the speakers. Now the speaker system will only turn up when the TV volume is up. Is their something I'm forgetting to do? Or are all TVs like this now?

Re: Am I forgetting something?

Your old TV took off the sound before the volume control and the new one takes it off after that control. Not much you can do without going in and doing some rewiring. You could use a VCR for your TV tuner source and then you would be able to turn down your TV sound and still get sound to your surround system. Good luck.

Front bose speakers and bass module stopped puttimg put sound

If you're saying you hooked the Bose speakers directly to the Yamaha's amp instead of the prescribed way through their own bass module - they're cooked.

Sony DAV-FC7 squeals

I had the same problem....but it kept taking longer and longer for it to quiet down, then eventually it just kept whining and I couldn't take it anymore...I had to stop using it for tv and only used it for DVDs (it didn't whine on the dvd function). I was going to get rid of the unit because my old tv died and I had to buy a new flat screen high-def unit, which needs a surround system to do it justice. I then noticed the digital optical connection on the Sony DAV-FC7 as well as my new Direct TV HD-DVR. I bought the optical cable for about $15 and hooked it up....and voila...NO MORE WHINE! If you have the optical connection option....try that might work for you as it did for me. Good luck

I have a Samsung HT-X50 Surround Sound, a LG 50" Plasma 50PC5D TV, and DISH Network Satellite.

How can I get surround sound to work on my tv. When I pull up my menu and go to audio the SRS Trusurround XT is not in bold so I cant figure how to connect it so I can have the surround sound coming from the system and not from the tv. Please help.

Tv surround

It depends on what you currently have as equipment.

You'll have to have something that outputs in digital audio (coaxial or optical). Either your reciever (Cable/Satellite) or the TV. You'll just hook that up to the Surround Sound unit and then just turn on the Surround System when you want surround sound.

You'll have to connect the TV as you would normally with audio cables sicne you'll want stereo sound on the regualr channels.
