I had this problem on my own tv and it nearly drove me mad, in tv menu under sound submenu their is a setting called spdif mode, there are choices in this mode that can be made, My current tv has Auto, off and pcm. some tv's have more choices. Try playing with these settings and its possible you can get it to work with cable, your cable signal probably uses a different sound format to the blueray/dvd player. note if this works the sound might not work when you go back to blueray/dvd player so note the setting before you change it in case you need to go back to it when you change over viewing choices. good luck.

Can you explain a bit more please. What exactly is the problem? Are you getting any picture or audio through to the TV? Are you getting any picture or audio through to the home theatre? Have you got the home theatre setup via HDMI? Have you connected the audio from the cable to the home theatre via optical or phono? What model is your LG LCD HDTV?
I already have the manual in front of me for your home theatre system. If you can give me some more information I can help you out.
Thanks.

SOURCE: cant get my viera linked panasonic to play through surround sound

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

The first question you need to answer would be, "Does your TV support Viera Link?" Most newer Panasonic TVs and other A/V devices support it, but it's hit or miss (usually miss) with other brands. I know Onkyo is one brand that has stepped up and offered Viera Link support on some of its devices, but I'm not sure about others. If your LG brand TV doesn't support Viera Link, you are out of luck and you'll have to rely on seperate remotes for the TV and home theater. If your TV does support Viera Link, the next question would be, "Are you using HDMI to connect the devices?" Viera Link can only communicate over HDMI (not component video, S-video, coaxial, composite, digital optical audio, etc.) If either of the aforementioned questions were answered "no", you can still connect your devices and use them normally, but you won't get the benefit of Viera Link communication between the devices. In that case you will likely have to keep using separate remotes.

SOURCE: blu ray connect to my sc-pt660

Why not leave the audio into the TV via HDMI from the Bluray and then optical audio out from TV to the home theater audio system? Same as the hook up for the cable box. The SC-
PT660 only has one optical audio connector so your solution may not be feasible assuming he's also got a cable box connected to the TV.

Whats the best way to install a panasonic viera tc-p50x3 to a yamaha home theater receiver rx-v371 to a panasonic blueray dmpbd75 using dishnet work hddvr set top box


connect your blue ray and your dish net with hdmi cables to the amplifier than monitor out hdmi to tv .in your dvd configuration you must make sure that hdmi audio is activated .ps not to be mean but this is a very low quality dvd because it does not have fiber optique audio output but it can still work, for your dis net it all depends on what type of digital audio output
is available , ill be honest with you this is a good job .
