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.

Trying to hook up this surround sound to a hdmi 1080p tv and cant get the speakers to make anything but background static. not sure if wires are connected correctly

You probably have to use the TV remote,go into the sound settings,and change it from stereo to whatever options there may be for surround.Good luck! Greg

How to create surround effect on cds/dvds which are not recorded on surround technology on home theatre dav dz 777

There is no way to do this in a controlled manner without re-mastering the disc, an unrealistic option.

However, there is a very simple way to extract the out-of-phase portion of a stereo recording, which can yield a quasi-surround sound effect.

To get this effect, connect an additional rear speaker to the positive ( + ) connection of the right speaker output and the negative ( - ) connection of the left speaker output.

Please keep in mind that this only works with a stereophonic (not mono) source and is fairly subtle.

Make sure the speaker you use is at least 8 ohms.

This is an old trick that pre-dates surround sound and works with music CD's too.

This set-up will probably degrade the sound of a true Surround-Sound recording so consider wiring a simple switch to disconnect the additional rear speaker when not in use.

Hope this helps.

Just bought a Philips home theatre system HTS3544 low sound?

You may also need to change the speaker set up. Go to DISC setting (one of the top selections on the remote) make sure you have no Disc in the DVD player. When in this mode press setup on the remote. On this menu you will have a option to adjust the speaker volume.

I had to increase my speaker volumes to get better sound. This setting is not accessible if you try to do the set up in other than DISC setting. Be sure to check the SURROUND setting. The SURROUND button on the remote will toggle between stereo and surround as stated in a previous post.

No sound through tv speakers

Well the problem is that the PS3 only allows output on one channel. So, this is only going to be optical out, or hdmi, or even AV. You only get one option for the output.

Now, if your TV has the capability.. Run the sound through the HDMI to the TV and then let the TV output the digital sound to the surround system. This will give you the option of turning off the surround and re-enabling the TV's stereo speakers.

I hope this gives you an idea of what the problem is. If I were you, I'd just do as I said. This is exactly how I have mine setup. I have a 600w sub on the surround, so late night movies can't be played on it without the neighbors being woke up. So, I simply disable the TV's output and use it's speakers. :)
