Question about Sony DAVHDX265 System

1 Answer

Surround Sound works with DVD, but not with TV, cable, etc.

I am using an HDMi cable to TV. All the other items (TV, cable box, Xbox 360 and PS3) are connected to the tv too. The PS3 and the cable box are using HDMi cables.

I've been trying for a week now to get the sound to work, but nothing I do seems to do anything.

I have a Plasma panasonic tv and I know the surround sound has worked in the past. But I had to disconnect everything recently and now nothing works. (other than DVD of course.)

Any help is appreciated!!!!

P.S. I've already looked at some of the other solutions on here and I only have 1 hdmi port on my cable box and the Sony theater system only has 1 hdmi out (but you already know that.)

How do I hook up my surround sound system thru my stereo and tv


connecting your surround sound system is not complicated.things you may need:OLDER STEREO SURROUND SOUND:analog red, white, and yellow cable connectorsHDMIaudio fiber opticsif you bought your stuff new from electronics store,then it would be easier.all you need is HDMI cables (mostly)depending where your inputs and outputs go, you must know the rule. OUT-TO-IN. that means if you are using a cable box, dvd, bluray, playstation, or xbox. everything in these electronic devices are OUT. then connect them to the IN ports of your surround sound. at the back of your surround sound there will be connections saying IN-dvd, IN-dvr etc. connect your OUT DEVICES.
NOTE: YOU MUST KNOW WHAT ARE YOUR CONNECTIONS, LIKE DVD-IN OR DVR-IN CU'Z YOU WILL USE YOUR REMOTE TO CHOSE WHICH CONNECTIONS YOU WANT TO USE.
now from your surround sound to your tv.the same ruleout to in of your tv. You should look for HDMI port that is saying OUT. you will connect your HDMI cable from there connecting to your IN of your tv. remember which port you plugged the HDMI cable as you will switch to that particular input. it will say at the back of your tv in-1, in-2, in-3 or as much as the manufacturer want to have in there product.
connecting your speakers.you must remember the color code.if you chose red as positive, all the red wire must be positive.colour may be different but same idea. if you have sub-woofer it will be an analog cable you will only use single cable. At the back of your surround sound there's a connection saying sub-woofer out.
now selecting your inputs.turn on your tv and stereo.newer tvs and stereos are smart they can configure there system which is turned on.
anyways if you will do it manually, you must select from the remote what is the connected input. (input 1, input 2 etc.) if you found the right input, do the players (dvr, cable box, dvd, bluray, playstation, xbox etc) turn them all on and select from your stereo remote control.note all the inputs you selected.

What cables are you using for the XBOX and the digital box? What surround sound system are you using (what receiver)? Which model of Dynex 32" TV do you have? Looking at the DX-L32-10A, I can connect both devices to the TV and then the audio out to the surround sound system.

If HDMI, then that will carry the audio to the TV and then you would need an audio cable from the audio out on the TV to the surround sound speakers. Similarly, if you use component video and the audio cable combination, there are 2 component video jacks and 3 audio-in jacks on the rear of the TV. Then connect another cable from the audio out of the TV to the surround sound system. (This TV has one audio out and a headphone jack.)

If you previously had the audio going from the Rogers digital box directly to the surround sound system, you need to reroute things unless there are two or more sets of audio in jacks on the surround sound system. Some surround sound system can take several HDMI in cables and then route it to the TV on a HDMI out port.

Without more information, I can't be sure of the best option for your cables.

I hope this gets you started and please provide more information for additional suggestions.

no, there's no firmware upgrade that you can do on the tv. the reason for that is because you are sending digital sound to the tv with hdmi from xbox 360,and when you have rca cables connecting your tv and surround sound, the rca cables provide stereo sound. what you need to do if you want to use hdmi is connect optical cable from tv orxbox 360/ or tv to your surround sound to get digital sound, and it will sound better digital sound.

Connect PS3 for playing/viewing blue-ray thru surround sound


I just finished setting up my system last night and was facing similar problems with sound/video from my PS3. The only option I could get working was to have the HDMI cable connected from the PS3 to the TV and then connect the Optical cable to the receiver for sound. I was under the impression that HDMI handles sound and video but for whatever reason the PS3 does not agree.

I have DTS sound and fantastic picture now through my PS3, hope this helps.

HDMI sound?


I had the same problem with my PS3. I have a HD cable box with HDMI out, a Sony DVD player with HDMI out. The Sony receiver STR-DG800 only has the HDMI inputs (sat/tv and dvd) and the HDMI is only a pass through port and will not decode audio.
I purchase a HDMI 4 port switch from Newegg (HS-41A0 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812168003&Tpk=HS-41A0) to hook up the DVD and PS3 to the DVD HDMI and switch between the DVD player and the PS3. It took me several days to figure out how to make this work with the settings on the reciver.

1 the DVD player must use the coaxial in jack for sound on the receiver.
2. the PS3 must use the optical connection on video1
3. the sound settings in the PS3 must be set to PCM
4. set the sound setting on the receiver to the following

a. on the remote press AMP button then the MENU button, next press the down arrow to you see 5- AUDIO SET - then press enter.
b.set sound decode priorty to PCM
c. next scroll down to you see digital assign - press enter
assign VID1 OPTICAL to DVD ( this allows the pcm output from the PS3 to play through the receiver), next assign DVD to COAXIAL setting DVD to DVD (this allows the digital sound to play from your DVD player).

So when you use your remote and select DVD, you can use your PS3 or DVD through the 1 DVD HDMI port.

Please help with getting 5.1 sound from my TV!


You must run a Digital Optical cable from your PS3 to your reciever. Then press your function button on your recievers remote until you see SAT/CABLE on your recievers display. Next go to your PS3 settings and go to Sound settings, then Audio Output settings, and select Digital out (OPTICAL) then your done. This is the only way to get true digital sound from your PS3 to your reciever.
