Cannot turn TV off when playing CD's with samsung HT-X810R/LG50PG
SYSTEM SAMSUNG HT-X810R / LG50PG7000 All attempts to play CD
without TV on fail. If you switch the TV off the soundbar switches off also. Only able to play a CD with HDMI input showing SAMSUNG on
screen. Cannot switch soundbar on in CD mode without TV switching on. Only works with Tuner mode. Any ideas?

The way mine is hooked up is like this: Ps3, DirecTV box all plugged to my samsung TV and then only thing I have plugged into the Ht box is the hdmi out to TV and an Optical Cable from Tv to HT box. All audio is going to Tv then to HT box and plays all through hometheater box when it is on. Try the optical cable
It seems as though the HT works fine, so to get the TV itself to play through the HT setup, take the audio out from the TV and hook it up to a separate channel on the HT receiver. Turn on TV and receiver and put the receiver on the respective channel of the receiver. I hope this helps.
You need to put away the remote for your TV and use only the remote for your HT system. Your HT remote should work on your TV by default. Your Samsung HT remote should have a TV button and a DVD/Receiver button (or HT button). When using only the TV, press the TV button and then use it for just the TV and when using the HT system, press the DVD/Receiver button and then you can use the HT system.
If for some reason your TV is not set on the Samsung HT remote by default, your HT users manual should have a list of codes that you can use to program your HT remote. Hope that helps you. Gary
You need just one cable that goes from your TV to your HT system.
On your TV you should see an RCA jack for "AUDIO OUT" and you need to plug that into your AUXILLARY "AUDIO IN" on your HT system
When you are watching TV and you want the sound to come through the HT system, just set the HT system to "AUX" mode. Most Samsung systems will have 3 'AUX' modes, set the remote on 'AUX 1' then wait a few seconds, if no sound comes through then set it on "AUX 2" wait a few seconds and if it doean't work try AUX 3.
Hope that helps.
Just try to clean your remote,this the common problem of dirty contacts of remote it plays a certain unit but to the other won't play.Just open it take a toothbrush with an alcohol brush the remote control board,and dry it for 1minute and close it back then check if working..
Keep in mind that if your back up DVD's are over 80min (720mb?) they will not play on the Samsung HT-X50 - There are also a few more formats that will not play either - its on the first few pages of the instruction manual.
