Actually, contrary to most user manuals, the best audio would be from the source you're watching, not necessarily the TV itself. Your unnamed receiver may have conenctors for great digital audio while your TV may limit you to 2-channel analog. Try it, you'll like it.
Is there is any optical digital output in your satelite HD. Then connect that optical digital output of satelite HD to the optical digital input of your surround system (blue ray player) using an optical cable.
Then press the function button on the remote of surround sound system (blue ray player) and select D.IN. (D.IN means DIGITAL IN). You will get the audio through the surround sound system. if you need any more assistance fell free to contact me throughfixya.
Hi! It would just be easy. Just prepare RCA cables and connect the cables to the tv and satellite receiver. Link the TV and satellite audio output to the BOSE audio input. Good luck and have a good one!
What make is your HD Box and TV? Assume you are connecting direct to your TV using HDMI, and not though an amp? If you do have an amp, you'll need an optical from HD box to amp to get DD 5.1, and connect your HD box to TV with the HDMI. Have you disconnected any scart connections from the HD box to TV - no longer required unless you really want to watch SD over the scart? Check that the Audio Output in the Sound settings for you HD box is set to Stereo. Does your TV have individual audio and picture settings for the input source - perhaps you need to tweak these for the HDMI input being used. Do you have another HDMI cable you can use to eliminate a possible dud?
It is likely that you do not have an HDMI cable connecting your cable/satelite set top box to the reciever. If you you run coxial striaght to your TV you will need a digital tuner and run the audio componet cable to the receiver and picture cable to the TV. Also be sure that TV out is perferably with optical audio. Hope this helps. If not its all listed simply in the owners manual. Try Sony's website if you lost it.
Just go into your sat box setup menu and under setup system option select audio and make sure to go to the dolby digital option and turn it on. This feature is turned off by default from the factory. You will always get 2 channel sound unless that is on. Also remember to go to a hd channel as they are broadcast in surround sound and non hd channels are broadcast in 2 channel.
Buy a hdtv antenna to autoscan program channels which should bring in a lot more then reconnect with the older antenna afterwards and if you're still not getting all the channels then each source needs a strong hdtv antenna that can be adjusted manually.
So you want to connect your red and white cables from your satelite box output to the receiver's auxillary inputs or TV inputs.
Red and White from your satelite output to an input on your TV, then another red and white from an output on your TV to the recevier. This way you can have sound from the TV and use the receiver when you want things to get louder. You also need a yellow single connector from the satelite to the TV to carry video. If you are using a coax cable from your satelite to your TV then you are cheaping yourself out of picture quality.
Use the component. If your tv is running correctly it should not lose quality through the component system. HDMI is simply a High Def Multiple Interface, meaning that it combines the Visual with the Audio signal in the same cable. Refer to your documentation on your sattelite box to see if there is a solution. But remember that the HDMI may be carrying what the actual broadcast sound is as not many if any channels are transmitted in 5.1 dts.
