Have a Panasonic SC-PT950 5-disc DVD Player/Surround Sound system hooked up to an Epson HomeCinema 700 projector via HDMI. I can hear the audio, but do not get any video.
I then hooked up an RCA cable from the video out on the Panasonic into the Video in on the projector. Now I have video and sound - but it's only 480p and I want 720p (via HDMI).
With the above mentioned RCA Video connection, I checked all the Display settings on the Panasonic. I got to the HDMI screen and it said "No HDMI cable connected" (or something like that). I *KNOW* the cable is connected and firmly in place.

It looks like from my searching you have an optical link on your tv and your reciver. You should just have to choose that as your output on the tv and your input on the reciver. It should be labled something like spdif. In my opinion it is the best cable ever until hdmi came out now its still really good.
component video output is not going to help you hook it up to a surround system. component video is just that - video. No audio signal is carried on it. You would be better served hooking your blu-ray player to the tv via hdmi cable and then running an optical cable from either your blu-ray player or your tv to the surround system (assuming your surround system has an optical input).
if you have this option, use a hdmi cord from the dvd output to the input of the tv.most new tvs have several hdmi connectors. Then use a fiber optic cable from sound system to the audio input of the tv. between the both it should sound like a movie theatre. thats how i hooked mine up. good luck
as far as hooking up your blu ray player to the sc-pt660, the only real way to utilize the surround sound (with true surround sound) is through the optical audio out. You need to connect your blu ray player through hdmi to your tv and then connect your blu ray player to your surround sound using the optical audio out/in. I, personally have the sc-pt660 hooked up through component cables so I don't waste an HDMI input on my TV. Except for cd's, there is no reason for you to use the actual dvd player part of the surround sound considering you have a blu ray player. In conclusion, hooking your blu ray player and the sc-pt660 up to get better video simply isnt possible (your blu ray player alone gives the best possible resolution, 1080p). As far as audio goes, run an optical audio cable from your blu ray player to your sc-pt660 to get true surround sound.
I think your problem could be that this Panasonic does not support "up-conversion". I believe that the HDMI is only for the DVD player output. Please put a DVD in and see if it plays on your TV. If it does, but the cable box does not play thru the HDMI, it is most likely that it is not supported. I alsop beleive that you do not have any HDMI inputs on the Panasonic, just an HDMI output. That would also indicate that the DVD player only is used for HDMI output.
You would need to connect the main unit's component output to the TV as well as the HDMI and use the component input of your TV for the cable box. I do not have a users manual fo rthis model, but I checked the service manual and it only ahows that the DVD player has output to the HDMI. Don't ask me why they would do it this way, it makes no sense to me.But that is what I seen in the schematics.
You could also try using this reset method, it could clear any errors you have, but would return the unit to the factory settings. You would then need to input all of your custom settings.
In STOP (no disc)
mode, press [STOP]
button on the main unit,
and [ 10] button on the
remote control unit.
5 seconds later.
Let me know if this helps, or what you come up with.
Check the TV audio output setting. There may be 3 settings for audio output. Fixed/variable/none. Try all of the settings, and see if you get your audio back. If not, try a different cable between the TV and DVD player. I suspect this is a red/white RCA audio cable.
well u cannot hook almost any devices with the SC-HT500.
I have this homecinema system for 5 years now, and i had to buy another stand alone DivX player to hook it up, but can't get the sound in dolby from the standalone player since the panasonic SC-HT500 has only 2 analog stereo RCA ports (audio in) in the back and a scart (A/V out) and component video (Video out).
At that time it was a very good system, but since i have bought a Full HD LCD tv with 1080p capabilities, I realised that my home cinema system i.e the Panasonic SC-HT500 is kind of useless, in the sense that you cannot even change the player for another one since the whole spaker and power connections are made trhough a special cable from the subwoofer. :(
best solution is that put the system back in a corner and get a new system which is not an all-in-one system. Preferrable get home cinema systems that come with a receiver, separate dvd player and speakers and subwoofer hooked to the receiver.
you asked how to hook these devices to your tv,, well the panasonic dvd recorder is better if you connect it via HDMI cable if you can. In the other case, connecting them with a scart cable would be another solution.
