Question about Philips DC912/37 iPod Docking Shelf Bar 100-Watt Audio System with Wireless Subwoofer Speaker System
I cannot connect the wireless subwoofer to the main speaker system. I've made sure that there is no wireless interference with the system, made sure they are fairly close to eachother and the power outlets. I've read the manual and tried the two different ways to connect the system and still no luck. Any help out there?

I have just bought one of these today and have had the exact same problem. No rear sound and no blue light on the receiver box.
What philips don't tell you in the manual and on the support site is that the receiver box has a switch hidden under a white sticker; next to the left of the right speaker connection. The switch has 3 positions which can be selected. I had tried each switch position and power cycled the subwoofer each time until eventually i got a blue light on the receiver box.
You may also need to select the correct channel on the control box by pressing the "sound" button for 5 seconds on the remote control.
It took me quite a while to try the different combinations until it finally worked. I can't imagine that Philips would have sent the system out without testing the wireless partnership first, so I am guessing my wireless network could have had something to do with it. (forever the optimist).
I did expect the subwoofer standby light to have gone off or changed colour once operational, but this just seems to stay on no matter what state it is in.

SOURCE: Sound from 3 channels only
Hi, first of all did you verify with the manual if it is possible to run a testsignal through all 5 channels?
One of the most common problems in this case is the basic settings of the device. If you don't have the manual, mostly you can download them from manufacturers website. Chances are that for some reason the setting is set 3.0 stereo (also known as 3channel sound) which is always the 2 fronts and the centre speaker.
Best thing to do it is take a DVD with THX on it and run the THX setup, it will send test signal to all channels.

The Easylink is Philips name for HDMI CEC which allows multiple HDMI devices to control each other with one remote.
As for the sound...it looks like there is only one audio out and it's in the form of coaxial cable which isn't very helpful.
What I would suggest is that you tap the audio coming from the input. So I'm assuming your TV is connected to a cable/dish box. Use the audio out from that to power your headphones or external speakers. This will likely mean you can't use the HDMI or will need a splitter, but at least it will solve your issue.
