    I have a Panasonic TV TH-42PZ8BA and the Home Theater System SC-PT460. They are connected by and HDMI cable and analogue audio cables (twin phono to phono).

    I can play DVDs and it works plays the audio through the sound system. Likewise, it also works fine for most TV channels, but if I select one of the 800 channels I get the error "Bad signal" and then "No service". If I turn the theatre system off the 800 channels work fine through the TV's speakers.

    Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Chris.

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.

Thank You,
Panasonic Consumer

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.

How do I change the regional coding on my Panasonic SC-PT460, I cant play half my library of movies. -Janus-


After getting clarification from Fixya I can pass the links below to you to check yourself

Some players are harder than others to do this but you may want to
try here or here
Comments:
Toshiba's and JVC's are the harder ones to do

I use a Phillips myself as it is not only cheaper but has much more going for it than many of the higher end units. i throw anything at it and it just plays

The older the unit that harder it is to do the region free thing with.
I let my EX have the panasonic (big grin)

If you cant find a fix then look at the codes available for cheaper brands and how easy it is to do it before you purchase one.

Just a thought.

You need to select setup from the TV menu then switch the Viera link on. I think retuning must have switched it off.

No sound through the Panasonic cinema surround sound on TV


Had a similar problem mate. I solved it by connecting the tv to the PT460 system with a scart lead. You then have to have the AV channel selected on the PT460 system to listen to the tv. You will always have to have the AV channel on the PT460 selected to listen to any sound transmitted through the tv - be it playstation/xbox or any other device that you may connect in the future with HDMI leads or otherwise. Hope this helps
