Question about Panasonic Home Theater System System
Ive just bought a 42" panasonic th42pz8ba plasma and a panasonic sc pt460 surround sound. ive got the tv connected to the ss by an hdmi cable and a scart lead as per the manual but i cant get it to play the tv sound through the speakers. ive viera linked it and selected to play through the home cinema system but no joy. any1 got any suggestions?
I had the same problem, so i contacted panasonic, I am including the email they sent me.
For connections of audio, so that you can hear all tv audio through the
surround system, connect either an optical audio cable or red & white
analog audio cables from the tv to the home theater. If you are using
optical audio, there is a plug on back of tv labeled for digital audio
output and an input on the surround sound system. If you plan on using
analog red and white, use the PROG OUT red and white output jacks on the
back of the tv to the AUX input on the home theater.
For video connections, to get HD you will need to be using either HDMI or
Component cables. HDMI is the cable that will provided 1080p signal (the
best HD signal), but if the source does not output 1080p, then your tv
will not display 1080p. Most cable boxes output at 1080i or 720p when on
HD stations. This signal still provides great picture quality, but HDMI is
not needed to get these HD signals. You can use component cables for your
cable box and the DVD player output to the tv for video. HDMI might give
you a slightly better picture quality but the signal will be the same.
To make the connection, you will want to connect from the cable box to the
tv (component or hdmi). Also from the home theater system to the tv using
hdmi or the video cables from component (red, blue, & green cables).
We hope this information is helpful to you.

My problem was that I could get some (most) channels coming through the home theatre system, except a few. The solution was a little strange. In Audio setup I changed SPDIF from Auto to PCM. I scanned the manual and couldn't really find a reference to either of these, but googling I worked out that it had something to do with converting analog signals to digital. Not sure why the Auto setting didn't work. I hope this fixes things for someone!Craig

I have worked out why the sound system did not work on the 800 channels. I went into the DVB signal condition menu and found the the problematic stations were all on channel 22. When I turned on the sound system the signal condition quality dropped to zero for the 800 stations on channel 22. The solution was to retune the TV with the sound system turned on. When I did this channel 22 was ignored because of the low signal quality. It then found the missing stations (ITV, ITV3 etc.) on a higher channel number with a better signal. These stations now play through the sound system.
