Sony BDV-370 DVD/5.1 theater hooked to Sony Bravia TV and cable box. No sound comes from rear or center speakers with HD cable.


Three things can cause this:
1) not all HD is recorded in surround sound. You can very well watch an HD program that just has Left/Right stereo audio. Tombstone on bluray is even only in Dolby 2.0
2) wrong connection is used. If you only use red/white analog stereo cables you will only get sound out of the left/right mains.
3) setting on the cable box is set to stereo and not surround. Changing this varies by cable box manufacturer.

I hooked up a new lg hd tv via hdmi through my digital cable box. I am not receiving true surround sound, only dolby II. I have my box digitally hooked up to the receiver and the HDTV digitally hooked up...


It's possible that the TV broadcast isn't in true surround, and is only dolby encoded.
You can try going back to the component hookups, but I am not sure that will solve your issue.

I am trying to hook up my tv through a onkyo receiver with polk audio speakers what is the best way to hook this up my cable system is from comcast with their hd converter box.


Use either an optical cable to your reciever or a digital coax, which ever you can or do use will give you dolby digital. Unless your onkyo has hdmi swithching. In that case you will need 2 cables, those are the best for picture and sound all in one cable.

When i hook up my hdmi cable box how do i get my stereo to run sound..? or can i..?


HDMI is audio and Video in the one cable, if your stereo has HDMI in and out you can run it from your box into your stereo then into your TV, but only if everything is supported by your componets, I would suggest, HDMI into your TV, then from your box, stereo or optical into your stereo, by just using RCA cables. ALSO remember with audio compontes, more is MORE, more cable better quality (not length but size)

Low volume on LG HDTV


I encountered the same thing using the HDMI interface on my new TWC cable box (Motorola DCX-3200). After a little bit of research, I finally fixed it by changing the digital audio mode in the cable box using this procedure:

1. Be sure the TV is on and connected to the cable box.
2. Using the cable box remote turn power OFF.
3. Immediately press the MENU key on the remote. The USER SETTINGS menu should appear on the TV screen.
4. Select the ADDITIONAL HDMI SETTINGS >>> menu item.
5. The ADDITIONAL HDMI SETTINGS menu will appear.
6. Scroll to the AUDIO OUTPUT item and select this.
7. Change the setting from AUTO to L-PCM.
8. Return to the main page
9. Using the remote, cycle power OFF.
10. When the cable box is turned on again, you should be good to go.

I realize these instructions are specific to the DCX-3200, but there may be a similar setup option available in your cable box as well.

The problem here is that the cable box is by default configured to use Dolby Digital audio, which requires an additional 10dB of headroom to deal with the boosted LFE channel. If the cable operator hasn't taken pains to set the system up correctly (and most haven't, apparently), the digital audio level sent on the HDMI interface will be approximately 11dB down from normal analog line levels on the HDTV channels. Changing to straight linear PCM sets the TV receiver audio level on the HDTV channels to match the levels on the non-HD channels.

The only problem with this fix is that if you intend to feed a Home Theater receiver that uses Dolby Digital processing with the cable box output you will lose the Dolby encoding feature and be forced into straight 2-channel stereo. For a simple installation like mine where I'm just feeding the TV, this fix works fine. If you have a more complex setup that takes advantage of Dolby Digital features (when it's available in program material), you may have to live with the problem.

For a technical reference on why this happens, see http://www.megahz.com/specimages/Dolby/LM100%20Cable%20App%20Note%2011-05.pdf

Hope this is useful.

Dolby digital problems


When using analog cables, switch the setting on the amp to 5CH STEREO or 7CH depending on your speaker configuration. This will give you consistant audio. Another option is to use either optical or SPDIF for digital sound. Good Luck.
