321System No sound just humming with TV connected to Video1 or 2
I have my 321 system connected to my Panasonic Plasma with an S video connection and Audio cables from TV Audio output to Video 1. Everything has worked fine for sometime. Problem is that when i try to watch TV and have audio go through BOSE 321 using Audio 1 all I get now is a humming noise. I switched cables to Audio 2 and same thing, humming and no sound. If I watch a DVD through the 321 the sound is great. I thought that my audio output of my Plasma might be the problem. I connected the 321 to another LCD tv that I have to see if it would work. With the 321 hooked to other tv I can now here a small amount of sound but there is alot of humming....Any Suggestions?

There are a couple of different ways you could go with this. Your Panasonic SCP-T480 has an HDMI and a digital optical port HDMI carries audio and video signal so, it would be your easiest/best bet. Digital Optical provdes sound only but, provides as good sound quality as HDMI but, no video To use the digital optical for sound you would also have a composite(RCA) cable to gain your video.
If you use a component system (1 yellow video wire, 1 red audio wire and 1 white audio wire)
You will have to connect the audio wires to your cinema system and the video directly to your set.
The unfortunate part of this is that when you want to use your system, you will have to change the input of the TV AND the Cinema system.
The same would be true if you wanted to use the DVD connectors (YBPBR). You would connect the video to the TV and the audio to the Panasonic unit.
The system you have is meant more for just playing DVD's and not a total cinema system. This is why there are limited (extremely limited) video inputs. The system is mostly for output of sound and of a the built in DVD video.
There must be a fault in the screening of the internal wiring to the scart outlet in the home theatre system. I simply changed the way the player was connected to the TV and the interference disappeared:-
1.) I used the RCA video outlet instead of the scart lead. Picture quality was not compromised. FYI the Panasonic Plasma TV I have has only RGB video input sockets at the back, so I used a scart to RCA adaptor to overcome this problem of connecting old technology to new.
2.) The surround sound when playing DVDs is generated directly from the home theatre system so there was no need to connect the audio from the home theatre system to the TV
3.) I used a pair of RCA leads to connect the "audio out" from the TV to the "audio in"on the home theatre system to provide the option of TV sound through the home theatre system.
You plug the humax into the panasonic dvd recorder and then from the outputs of the dvd recorder plug it into the panasonic plasma inputs
Is component video better than RGB? Well, yes and no, RGB provides the widest bandwidth and is the best choice for connecting audio visual devices like a Freeview box, digibox or Sky+ box to your TV, home cinema or home theatre system. DVD is however different, to reduce the amount of storage required DVDs are recorded using component video, it is therefore better to connect a DVD player via a component video cable to your TV, plasma or LCD TV etc.
Thanks if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask
To get sound from tv to your system you have to run a set of phono cables from the audio out on the back of the tv to the input on the system,these may be marked "aux".Once you have this done set the sound to prologic2 and enjoy.
You did not list which console you have and what type of cables it has.
Looks like your plasma has: 1 component 1 composite 1 VGA 1 S-Video
If this is an xbox360 or PS3 then you will want to use the component connection, but this one is already used by the cable tuner. Don't worry there is a solution. The xbox360 and ps3 output a higher resolution that your plasma can handle, so use the component with those systems.
If it is an older console, predating the xbox360, then use the composite or S-video connections.
Since you are short on video inputs, you might need a video switch. A switch with both component and S-video connections for future add-ons.
You can find them all over the web, or your local video store like walmart and best buy. Here is a switch i found on ebay that should work: http://tinyurl.com/3aoev9

Make sure you buy extra cables, most of these boxes do not come with cables, so buy what you need.
I prefer video switches that don't require a power outlet, but it's your choice. Some of the powered switches, have remotes for the lazy people, but I don't need anymore remotes on my table, keep that in mind.
