Question about Samsung 1200W 5.1-Ch. XM-Ready Home Theater System with Upconvert DVD Player
The dvd will work with the surrond but I also have direct tv satt. and regular cable and can't get them to use the home theater sound
This is going to be a bit tricky with this model, since either your Cable or Sat box will need a Digital Audio Out, and you will need to purchase a Digital Audio cable. If your sat box has a digital audio out, connect a digital audio cable from the sat box to the digital audio in on the back of the Samsung. Then connect a red and white AV composite cable from an available audio out on the back of the cable box to the "Aux In 2" on the back of the Samsung - this may only allow stereo sound, however.
Your absolute best bet (and the simplest connection) will depend on whether your TV has a SPDIF OUT or Digital Audio Out (they are roughly the same). If your TV has a Digital Audio out, connect a digital audio cable from the TV to the Digital Audio IN of the Samsung. Now you will get sound from any cable, sat, or any other type of box that is connected to your TV.
