You may have to set the TV output to stereo or matrix out. Also if the stations are not in stereo or surround it will not play in surround.
If you are connecting to a cable or satellite box and you are just using the coaxial input to the TV you may not get stereo. Some cable companies only send mono signal through the coax and you need to connect the tv to the box using component cables and the R and L audio connections.
There may also be settings in the receiver that you have to adjust to get surround from the TV.
You could connect the audio out directly to the receiver instead of the TV and just use the receiver for TV sound.

Hope this helps

Hi,here is my simple solution...
to listen your TV on your Stereo system thru your
samsung home cinema receiver,
** you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" of your TV
** to "AUX input " or "TV" OR "Any input" of your receiver ( except Phone ) or "Optic Cable input"
** than just switch to respective mode on
samsung home cinema RECEIVER corresponding your RCA or Optic connection..
.
There you go..Your TV sound is on the
samsung home cinema Receiver..By this means whatever you watch on the TV (TV tuner, satellite , Xbox ..etc.) ,it's sound will come thru your stereo..

It sounds like you are activating a test mode to set your surround speaker levels.
Usually you should do this before using any surround sound modes.

If you could post the exact model; we can search for an owners manual.

LG HT503PH home cinema system - two front speakers work with tv and shy but not back speakers. When I test, all speakers work. Connection used - optical. What am I doing wrong?


Press the VSM button on the remote control until the display shows PL11 MOVIE or PL 11 MUSIC I personally prefer movie, that should give you simulated 5.1 on all speakers It works for me on both my TV and my xbox 360 which are connected.

Whoa,ok.Sounds like things aren't connected properly.The first step is to disconnect the TV and concentrate on getting sound from a dvd or cd.Read the owners manual and double check that the speakers are hooked up correctly and that the unit is in the correct surround mode.Next, connect the TV.Use an RCA cable to go from an "Audio out" jack on the TV to an input jack on the Teac -e.g. "Aux, TV, etc.If your TV doesn't have the proper jack, I'm afraid you're out of luck.
