    I'm having a problem connecting my CD player to the Yamaha AV receiver. I've connected my blu-ray to the Yamaha unit via HDMI and then audio via an optical cable. Problem is the Yamaha doesn't seem to accept the analog CD connection. There is an optical option on my CD player, but the CD optical connection on the Yamaha unit is being used by the blue-ray optical cable. I'm stumped on how to get the CD player connected.

If your home theater has an hdmi in and out then you wuol be better of connecting the blu-ray hdmi to your home theater then to your tv. If all you have are optical connections to your reciever then what your doing will work fine. Additionally if your blu-ray has built in decoders not present in your reciever and also has 5.1 or 7.1 analog outs you can connect them to a six or seven channel in on your reciever if it is so equipped and have the benefit of true-hd or other current audio formats on current Blu-rays

I cannot get all speakers to work. I connected my blu-ray player to my HTIB1002 and the blu-ray has only 2 RCA outputs red/white. The Home Theater subwoofer has L/R front, Center, and L/R rear speakers....


I don't know what kind of bluray player you have but I would find it hard to beleive it does not have a digital optical output, maybe even HDMI. Anyway, I'm going to try to look up you HTIB1002, I'm assuming it's a receiver, But you may need an A/V. What in/out puts does the bluray player have? JUST red, white and yellow or are there others?

I wanted to know if there is a way to hook up the sound from a Panasonic DMP-BD655P-K Blu-Ray player to my existing Yamaha DVX C310SW home theater system. I know I can hook the Blu Ray directly to the TV...


Yes this can be done. You have several options for audio hookup. Stereo 2-channel (white and red) RCA cables, digital audio (optical or coaxial) or HDMI. Your home theater must have the inputs available such as optical, coaxial etc. Typically the stereo 2-channel RCA is the simple way. Just connect from the Bluray audio outputs to the Home theater inputs (white and red) for stereo sound. Select the input on the home theater. For Dolby Digital 5.1 use optical digital audio cable (black port) or coaxial (orange RCA port) from Bluray to similar home theater input.

I have a LG LHB335 Blu-Ray home theater system, & a LG TV I can get Full surround sound when the blu-ray is play a DVD but not when just watching Reg TV. I use a HDMI, should I hook up sonething else ?...


LG documentation states:

When you use SIMPLINK function, you have to

connect to the OPTICAL IN 1 jack to enjoy TV
sound to your speaker system.

Basically you need to have the Audio go from TV to receiver and setup receiver to that Input to output surround sound to all speakers.

If you have a cable box or satellite receiver, hook that output into the receivers input and that should work.

My setup is DirectTv HDMI output goes into the LG Home Theater HDMI Input 1, and LG goes HDMI output into the TV HDMI input 1.
so to watch DirectTV, I switch LG Home theater to HDMI Input 1. and TV is on HDMI input 1 (to view LG HDMI output from DriectTV, Blu-Ray, Vudu, etc.)

How do i connect Panasonic sc PT480 home theater Panasonic lcd tv Panasonic Blu Ray and Virgin V+ box. I have lots of cables but have got totally confused.


Ok, so first, you need to get the pictures to the TV. So, you should have an HDMI lead from the Bluray to the TV. You should have either an HDMI or SCART lead from the Virgin Box to the TV. If you are going to play and DVD's from the Home Theater system, this too needs a scart to the TV, but if you are planning to use the bluray for all playing back, then this is not needed. Next, you want to get the sound from all your equipment to the home theater system. This where it can get confusing, as there are different types of leads that do the same thing. If your TV has an 'Optical Out', and the Theater system has an 'Optical In' then you can connect the two with a Fibre-optic cable, and that means that anything then that you have on the screen, can have the sound through your surround sound. Digital Coaxial In's/outs do the same thing, as do Phono In's/Outs, but phono cables will not carry 5.1 digital. I hope this helps!

I have bouight a samsung home theatre system that comes complete wiht a DVd player - i also have a samsung blu ray player - naturally ithought they would be compatible!! how wrong i was!! the connections...


You have several ways to do this. You can hdmi cables from the two units and plug them into your tv if it supports hdmi and run the audio out portion on the back of the tv and hook that into one of the audion inputs on the surround unit. Or you run audio directly out of the bluray using rca, digital coax, or digital optical cable. Turn the surround reciever to the corresponding input that you choose to use.

Blu ray connect to my sc-pt660


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.
