connect audio cables from the audio out jacks on your tv to the audio in jacks on your samsung surround. they may be labeled video 1,2 or aux. if your using a cable box the cable box may have optical or digital input jacks. your samsung surround should have a digital in jack which requires an optical cable.
Check your "Setup Menu" with NO DVD in the player. Could be the wrong format, should be 720p or 1080i or 1080p. Are you using Component cables to your TV or HDMI? if Component, check your connections, it is color coded but may be hard to see with most installations. Use a flashlight to make sure colors are correct Red to Red, Blue to Blue and Green to Green. Sounds like you've got cables mixed up. It happens to the best of us! and I do it for a living! Hope this helps
You can use the PANASONIC AUX IN ports for your TV or CABLE BOX audio, unless you run the DIGITAL CABLE into the PANASONIC, this may be available on the CABLE BOX or your TV, my suggestion is if you use the Cable box to view TV then use the CABLE BOX AUDIO OUTPUTS, you would be better with the CABLE BOX digital output INTO YOUR panasonic, but if it is already being used take the AUDIO out analog connection from your cable box into your Panasonic AUX INPUTS, then set the Panasonic to AUX IN mode.
I've had similar problems in the past. With audio problems trace the problem from the source to the amp.
1. What output is the cable box using for audio, digital or analog? 2. Is there a setting in the cable box to switch between digital and analog? 3. Once you have determined the output of the cable box check to make sure that it's going into the right output on the panasonic 4. This is where the problem usually is...what is the receiver expecting for sound, analog or digital? 5. Switching between the sources...the sound should be on one of them.
If you have direct cable into the television, you will need to use an audio output if available on the back of your set into your HT system.
If you are using cable w/ a cable box you have two options. You can still connect everything directly into the TV then reroute the audio to the HT system... or, you could hook only video to the TV and audio from the cable box to the HT system. Really up to you.
audio/video OUT from the cable box to the aux IN on the panasonic right? So you can see the output from the cable box but only sound from dvd. Are you changing the input on the tv when you go from watching the cable box to watching the DVD? the panasonic handles audio, but the video from each goes to two different inputs on the sony. I hope none of this sounds condescending.
