Question about Panasonic SC-HT820V System

Open Question

I have a Panasonic SC-HT820V system but want to add blu-ray and use Viewsonic PJD5233 projector with full surround sound. How can I make this work?

Currently I connect system to an older BenQ SVGA projector and run the sound for DVDs through the Panasonic. I wonder if I upgrade to an XVGA projector (ViewSonic PJD5233 with HDMI--no HDMI as such, only component on the Panasonic out), is there still a way to play the surround sound through the audio? The ViewSonic projector has: HDMI, dual RGB-in, RGB-out, audio in/out, RS232, and S-Video and composite video connections.

Maybe because is only read audio, like Photos and mp3 audio only, expecially if read format llike "High Mat" to read photos and music, try to go to instructions manual and see the format what your dvd read.

Why not leave the audio into the TV via HDMI from the Bluray and then optical audio out from TV to the home theater audio system? Same as the hook up for the cable box. The SC-
PT660 only has one optical audio connector so your solution may not be feasible assuming he's also got a cable box connected to the TV.

SOURCE: Just got Panasonic Home Theater

What kind of TV do you have?
I have found one of the easiest ways to connect surround system is to connect all your accessories (ie. Wii, Cable Box, VCR, etc) to the TV.

Next find the AUDIO OUT on the TV and connect this to the TV or AUX input on the home theater.

Tune the Home theater to the Input that you connected the TV to. This should play the audio through the home theater for any input you tune the TV to.

Note: make sure to turn the TV volume all the way down otherwise there will be some distortion due to the delay between the TV and the home theater.

Good Luck,
Robert

SOURCE: I purchase a Panasonic Blu-Ray Home Theatre

Hello there,

Yes it is possible and relatively simple to do. I suspect you have only connected an HDMI cable from the Home Theater system (HT) to the TV. This cable only sends audio and video to the TV from the HT system - it can't be used to receive the audio from the TV back to the HT.

To get audio from the TV channels through the HT speakers, you will need to connect a separate audio cable from the AUDIO OUT sockets on the TV to the HT. This can be either a Digital Optical cable (connects to socket ringed in green) or an RCA type stereo audio cable (connects to AUX sockets ringed in red).

If you are using a cable or satellite receiver, you should connect the receiver directly to the HT rather than the TV. You would also need to select the correct INPUT on the HT when you want to use the speakers for the TV channels. This will be DIGITAL 1 if using the digital optical cable or AUX if using the RCA stereo audio cable.

The audio connections are explained on page 16 of your user manual and input selection is explained on page 23. If you don't have a manual, please let me know and I can supply one.

I can draw you a diagram showing how to connect your TV to the HT and provide step-by-step instructions for setting it up, but you will need to let me know the brand and model number of your TV. If you are using a cable or satellite receiver, please let me know the brand and model number of this receiver as well.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

No sound from senter and soround


Check all audio settings. Does your unit offer 2 channel and 5.1 or 7.1 surround settings? When in doubt, I reset to default or factory settings and see if it works.

Hi

Have you resolved this issue yet? I am in a similar position. recently upgraded my TV to a flat screen, also purchased a Blu-Ray but the SC-HT880 is now useless. How can I use the surround sound to work on TV? do I need to purchase an Amp?

I have a Panasonic SC-HT692 5 disc theater in a box with a broken subwoofer and everything else functioning. Sounds like there's a functioning system if we put out parts together.

If your tv and surround has an optical input/output.Then you can connect with an optical lead.This will then play the sound from whatever you are watching.You normaly select dig1 or input1 on the surround system.

Blu ray connect to my sc-pt660


as far as hooking up your blu ray player to the sc-pt660, the only real way to utilize the surround sound (with true surround sound) is through the optical audio out. You need to connect your blu ray player through hdmi to your tv and then connect your blu ray player to your surround sound using the optical audio out/in. I, personally have the sc-pt660 hooked up through component cables so I don't waste an HDMI input on my TV. Except for cd's, there is no reason for you to use the actual dvd player part of the surround sound considering you have a blu ray player. In conclusion, hooking your blu ray player and the sc-pt660 up to get better video simply isnt possible (your blu ray player alone gives the best possible resolution, 1080p). As far as audio goes, run an optical audio cable from your blu ray player to your sc-pt660 to get true surround sound.

Panasonic multi connections


HDMI audio in this setup is a one way street. Audio will not come back from the TV to the audio system.
Sorry as you have not shown the model number I can not advise on the system fully.
However, it is standard on the current Panasonics to use Optical audio as a return feed or phonos.
Optical would be best as it carries full digital surround, whilst the phonos only carry "surround"
It may help for you to look a the new Panasonic web sit as there is now an interactive "How to connect your system"

SC-RT50 Decoding Surround Sound From Aux and Inputs


The other players need to be setup to output digital sound. Assuming you are using a digital or optical audio cable, go into the setup screen of the Blu-Ray or Tivo etc. and select the audio setup screen. Set the audio output to PCM.
