Hi
I have the same tv but my dvd surround is a toshiba, that shouldn't matter though. When I watch a dvd I go to component 2 which is where I have my dvd connected on the input of the tv when I watch tv and want the surround on I go to component 1 which is the tv input then on my dvd player I go to auxillary and I can watch tv in surround. I don't know the LG home theatre system but you should be able to select your inputs like between dvd, tuner, aux. Flip between them and you should get sound. hope this helps.

SOURCE: Having problems with HDMI connection

Connect the HDMI outputs on your various components to the HDMI inputs on your receiver. Connect the HDMI output on the receiver to the input on your TV. HDMI incorporates digital audio, so no need to buy optical audio cables. If your receiver does not have HDMI inputs for all your components, you will need to make a choice. HDMI = Best, component video + optical audio = second best, S-video+ optical audio = third best

Can i connect dmp-bd871 to a home theater system


It will depend on your home theater system and TV. If your system accepts HDMI in from other devices and HDMI out to the TV, connect an HDMI cable from the blue-ray player to an HDMI input on home theater system. Then connect another HDMI cable between the home theater system and the TV. This will provide the best video and audio experience.

Another option is connect the HDMI cable from the Blue-ray player to the TV. Connect the audio output of the TV to the home theater system. (This will depend on the TV as well as the home theater system. Some TVs have digital audio outputs; others have analog outputs. If your home theater system doesn't have the same input as the TV's output, you would need a converter as well as the digital and analog audio cables. This is an example of one for digital to analog: http://www.gefen.com/kvm/dproduct.jsp?prod_id=4907 .)

If you do not want to get the best picture from the Blue-ray player and your home theater system has analog audio inputs, you can connect the composite video out to the TV. Then connect the audio outputs from the player to your home theater system. (This means only an SD picture will be provided to your TV.)

Panasonic has the manual for the DMP-BD871 here: service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/DMPBD871-MUL.PDF .

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the other devices in your entertainment system or their inputs/outputs. Then I can add specific information for your system and any tips for setting up the system.

CONNECTIONS AND SETUP


Setting up the home system to the TV means you have the option of the sound deing routed to the audio system. Now it depends on the availability of the inputs to your home system which is not mentioned and if this is basic you can connect the audio outputs L&R to the repective inputs in the home system.
If HDMI/coaxial is available then you can do so. The home system speakers must be connected one by one accordingly with the correct polarity and tested by choosing the input.

I'm Tryin to connect a samsung blu-ray (BD-P1500) to a samsung home entertainment system (HT-D555W) with a samsung LCD tv (LA 40C650L1F) need the best way to connect them .... Thanks


Find the manuals and refer to them.

My personal spin on the instructions:

NO signal ever benefits from multiple connections or 'hops' and it gets expensive zig-zagging a signal all over the room. K-I-S-S is the word of the day. Run the BEST version of any signal directly from its source to the BEST electronics that will present it to you for consumption. The separation of audio and video inputs and outputs on a device is what allows and ENCOURAGES the direction of each signal to the BEST electronics that can process it. Example: your TV does not have the best speakers in the room so why send it any high-end audio?

How do you connect the speakers on to your flat tv. I read it on the manual that u have to use HDMI, but i did. It still won't work.


This model has speakers. If you are trying to connect external speakers i.e. a home theater system, receiver or a sound bar you have a couple options.

This television only has hdmi inputs so you cannot connect the external speakers with hdmi cables. The television would have to have and hdmi output.

Now in order to use hdmi you would have to connect all your devices to the home theater and then go hdmi out from the home theater to one of the two hdmi inputs on this television. Then you would leave the television on that hdmi input at all times and switch devices with the home theater remote.
All the devices would be connected from their respective outputs to a respective input on the home theater.

Another option is to connect a fiber optic cable from the television to the home theater.

Another option would allow for stereo sound but not the higher quality surround sound. You can connect from your televisions red and white RCA outputs to the RCA input on the home theater.

I have the same issue. I've opened up several tickets with Samsung tech support. I'm concluding that it's the BluRay rcvr has bad hdmi input & output circuitry. I'm returning mine to Best Buy where I purchased it for a replacement. Before I leave the store, I'm going to make sure that the replacement unit's hdmi inputs & outputs work @ the store.

Compatibility fo TV and Sound system


TV has audio outputs, the RCA cable type. If you connect the audio output (red,white) from the TV(look on the back), and connect the RCA cable to Input of home theater system,you should get TV sound from home theater system. You may have to set the audio on the TV for external source. Go to menu, to audio setup, to options. On the Home Theater system, you may have to select the audio source, i.e. audio input 1, etc.

Hooking up home theater


Run a regular RCA type audio cable from your TV audio out to your Home Theatre audio in. That is what I have done recently with my Samsung LCD and Home Theater. You then have to put your Home Theater on Aux 1 or Aux 2 to get the sound from TV. Ensure your TV's volume is off.
