Question about Panasonic Home Theater System System

Can't hear TV throug home theater

I have a new Sony Bravia TV & new Sony home theater. I have a HDMI going from my cable box to my TV and a HDMI cable going from my combination DVD/CD Player Home Theater to my TV. I also have run an optical audio cord from my Home Theater to my TV. While my DVDs play fine and the surround sound speakers work fine, I have been unable to get my TV (stations) to play through my home theater. I have read mixed posts. Some have implied that the digital audio cord is all I need and I must have a setting incorrect. Others say that the HDMI cable from the TV to the cable box should be all I need. Still others indicate that I need to run some other type of additional audio cord from the TV to the cable box. Any help would be greatly appreciated - Thanks!

    My Dad just bought the SC-BT100 system and has the same type of setup. HDMI from the BD player to the TV and another from the Cable box to the TV and one Optical Audio out from the TV to the receiver, yet there is no sound from the TV when setting the receiver to optical audio. He is having to use RCA's for TV surround. We have checked the settings in the manual, but nothing seems to work. Is this an issue with the receiver? I have this same setup at my house and it works just fine, so I don't believe there are any additional cables needed.

Why doesn't the ARC TV sound work through the HDMI cable? Is it because the KDL-52XBR7 only has the Bravia Sync and no ARC support?


Not all Hdmi cables have same capabilities. Check out:

DVD Does not work when using HDMI from Philips TV to Bravia


You could see if they will exchange just the unit and save both of you the hastle of checking and repackingit all. It does sound like the unit is faulty.
Or if your Bravia has more than one HDMI input then try on another, or a friends tv if you know some one with a HDMI tv in working order.

No sound from TV thru sony bravia hdx576wf; DVD & CD audio ok.


Could be a sync calibration issue. Try to divert the TV sound to another input source on the Hometheatre system if possible, if it is a go then maybe the TV audio needs to be recalibrated. Make sure TV audio setup menu option has not changed also.

Wiring problems


Not certain if HDMI can be used in a setup like this. I'd try it from the home theater (HT) to the TV, and other wiring for the other components.

For video:
All of these should have component connections (Y/Pr/Pb). You'll only need the video cables for each device:
  • Video out from cable, HT, and combo player.
  • Video in to TV. Your choice of inputs.
For audio:
Hopefully, the two output devices (the combo player and the cable box) have digital audio (fiber optic, or RCA coaxial). Otherwise, you'll only get stereo sound. VHS is stereo only anyway.
  • Audio out from cable box and combo player.
  • Audio in to HT.
The TV won't have anything to do with audio in this setup. Alternatively, you could try hooking up all inputs to the TV, and connecting audio out from the TV to the HT. Works best if this connection is digital, for surround.

Sony Bravia Dav-HDX279W and comcast HDTV Cable box connection.


Like above, use an optical connection (need fiber optic cable) or a coaxial connection (single RCA cable). HDMI might also work, but I personally haven't checked. Connect the audio outs from the cable box to the audio ins on the home theater. The TV will only need a video connection from the cable box, as well as one from the home theater (for DVDs, onscreen menus).

This discussion can help you set up the universal remote.
