Sony Model DAV ? SB 500W Home Theatre System

Hi there!

How do you get the DVD player SOUND to play through the TV speakers?

I have a new Panasonic 50” Plazma TV
Model TH 50PZ 800A

I have connected a Sony Home Theatre System to it.
This is a DVD player and a speaker system.
Sony Model DAV – SB 500W

If I have a TV programme on, I can play the sound through the TV AND the Sony speaker system. Which is fine.

If I play a DVD in the Sony, the sound system plays the sound and the TV shows the vision. However, the TV speaker system cannot be used.

A good part of the Sony remote doesn’t work as I am not using a Sony TV, so there are compatibility problems. This is to be expected, so not much I can do about that.

My questions are as follows:

1. When playing a DVD from the DVD Theatre System, is it possible to get the sound playing through the TV speakers? In other words, the sound goes through the Sony Theatre System AND the TV speaker system?

(I understand someone might say Why would you do that? My answer is, when a TV programme is on, (ie. I can play sound through BOTH systems), I have found being able to use the TV speakers can sometimes provide another dimension to the sound. Having this extra facility would be nice when using just the DVD player).

1. How do I wire it up for that?

I’m at dsemmm@gmail.com or

Thanks for reading.

Please check at rear of TV for Digital Optical IN port as home theater should have optical out port at rear. If you got any optical in port in TV, just connect optical wire between TV and home theater.

2nd option is check Line Out pins at rear of home theater system, if found, hook red-white RCA cable there and put it to same input in TV where you hooked Video (composite or component) cable.

Let me know the results to help you more.

You will need to wire the DVD player into the TV not the home theatre

I assume you mean the TV sound only comes out of the TV. THAT would involve internal audio controls at the TV.

Why don't you just connect the TV-related audio directly from each source to the DAV instead of through the TV, which adds NOTHING to the sound quality and may even degrade or limit it.

Surround sound hookup question?


It looks like all you'll need to do is hook up audio out from DirecTV to audio in on the surround sound system. Sony has an interesting hookup recommendation guide on the product support site:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-home.pl?mdl=DAVC700&LOC=3

That should give you the connection options. The short answer, though, is to connect the best audio out from DirecTV to an audio in on the surround sound and then choose that option in the surround sound system when you want to watch TV.
