Recently bought a 52" Sharp
LC52SB55U.I run an optical cable from my cable box to my home theater, and an hdmi cable from my cable box to my tv. With my Philips tv, this worked fine. With the Sharp, I get surround sound while the optical cable is connected to the home theater, and the hdmi is unplugged. When I plug the hdmi cord into the cable box while it is detached from the tv, I still get surround sound. The second I plug the hdmi cord into the tv, I lose surround sound. Any ideas? I'm stumped.

Re: No surround sound when attaching hdmi to TV
Try running the optical TOSLINK cable from the TV to the receiver. If the TV doen't have a digital optical output, then try going into the menu on your cable box and setting the audio output to the digital optical out. Also check your TV menu and make sure NETCOMMAND is diabled. Some of your newer HDTV have Netcommand that allows the TV to control other devices through the HDMI cable.

If your TV has HDMI in and digital optical out, run your HDMI cable via HDMI out on box to, HDMI in on TV then, run digital optical ouyt from TV to digital optical in on reciever. Your reciever has video pass through but, not the best option. Video components should run to TV then out to reciever. If you do not have digital optical out on TV, you may be able to use RCA.
On the remote control for the Samsung Home Theater System look at the bottom left to a button that says "MODE", those moods change the sound each speaker gives off. if that doesn't work, you might need new wiring because there are other wires that are more durable than the ones that come with it, much better too.
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.
Hi, You have connected from PC to TV right??? 1.To get the video you have to connect to TV 2.Please take a separate cables for to listen audio and to watch video, for audio connect cables from DVD Player to Home Theater you can listen the audio for video please connect the HDMI video to TV Where You can enjoy both.
all wrong! look at the back of your tv input panel you will see 2 rca jacks labelled audio out use rca cable (stereo) then connect to your audio receiver input labelled tv or any available input like cd vcr ....etc.let me know.
After trying several ways, we decided the best picture was to run the blue ray (out) directly to the TV (in) with an HDMI and another HDMI from the sat. box(out) to TV(in), then optical audio from TV (out) to receiver (in). This way you don't have to change channels on the reciever when switching from TV to DVD. Remember that HDMI is one cable that supports audio and video. If you are using all Samsung products and want to use one remote, using the Anynet feature, I think it has to be connected with an HDMI. I'm going to try connecting an HDMI too from the reciever to the TV to see if this feature will work. It does with the Blue Ray.
Hey Gamer1827, While I personally can't provide you with any model-specific home theater system recommendations, there are a couple of common ways that you can generally configure your home theater. Connecting several devices directly to the HTIB system may typically allow you to minimize the number of remote controls necessary, as long as the HTIB system supports the use of a universal remote. Should you not necessarily care if you have to change back-and-forth between two remotes however, you may have a wider variety of possible configurations available. In order to use only HDMI cable connections to set up your home theater, you most likely would need an HTIB system with three HDMI ports: one for your TV, one for your PS3 and one for your cable box. Each device would require a separate HDMI cable running between it and the receiver. This option (in theory) would allow you to use one universal remote to control each device, assuming that they are all compatible with the same remote. Another common configuration you might wish to try requires you to connect your cable box and PS3 directly to your TV. By doing so however, you might limit yourself to using an optical digital audio cable to make the connection between your TV and many HTIB systems. In this configuration, the cable box and PS3 would again have their own separate HDMI cables, while the optical digital audio cable would need to be run from the Digital Audio-Out port on the back of your TV to the Digital Audio-In port on the receiver. This option essentially treats the HTIB system as an expansion device, instead of the center of your home theater configuration. Should you need any additional information or suggestions, remember that you may always speak with a sales representative at your local Best Buy™ store for further assistance.

what you need to do is look at you HD DVR box and see if you have an "optical" port on the back then check and make sure your home theater box has an "optical" port. if they do all you have to do is go to radio shack and pick up an audio OPTICAL cable and go between your HD DVR and your home theater box.
Run a regular RCA type audio cable from your TV audio out to your Home Theatre audio in. That is what I have done recently with my Samsung LCD and Home Theater. You then have to put your Home Theater on Aux 1 or Aux 2 to get the sound from TV. Ensure your TV's volume is off.
