Panasonic BT100 & sh-fx67 kit surround sound not working
I have a panasonic bt100 bluray system and the add-on sh-fx67 wireless surround sound speaker kit. The bluray player and the wireless transmitter appear to pair ok (green light on the transmitter W2 symbol on the player) and I have configured for 5.1 surround in the setup but nothing comes out of the rear speakers... I've been through the manuals numerous times and I am at a loss... please help!
I had the same issue with the green light coming on on the shfx67 but no w thingie sign. I went into setup and then onto speaker and changed it from 3.1 to 5.1 and ran a test screen...the speakers were working after all.
Now it works for Bleu Ray, but cant seem to get the SKY TV working in surround...thinking Panasonic need to help me here...there instructions are way to cpmplex for something that is supposed to just turn on and play...!

What TV audio is available to the SC-BT100 that a) isn't available to the TV directly; and b) would sound better on the TV?
I'd look on my cable box for the basic analog audio out and send it to the TV for those times you just want to watch the news without hi-fi. I'd also send the best Video (HDMI) directly to the TV because passing it through the receiver just adds cabling and opportunity for malfunction.
The best audio should go directly to the Panasonic. Period.
Look around fixya for the most common video problems - not passing through the receiver unscathed.
This unit is not as flexible as traditional receivers are as far as speakers are concerned. Speakers are labeled and *must* be connected to the correct speaker terminals.
Upon reading the manual - it is quite apparent that the only provisions for rear surround speaker connections is <i>only</i> via the optional wireless transmitter / receiver hardware. The optional digital transmitter is connected via a proprietary plug on the rear of the SC-BT100. The optional receiver amplifies the received signal and passes it to the connected surround speakers. I would bet that there are no provisions for amplifying a surround L and R speaker channel inside the SC-BT100, and that it only provides a low level (like a "tape out") or un-amplified signal to the transmitter plug. Even if you were to manage to get the surround speaker connections made up there - you would not be able to hear anything from them - as there is no amplifier. The amplifier is contained in the wireless receiver, and is largely why it requires a connection to house current.
Unfortunately, I doubt you'll find a way to listen the surround channel audio from the SC-BT100 without the optional transmitter / receiver and the integrated amplifier.
You can review the manual like I did here: http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/SCBT100.PDF
How are you hooking it up? To what kind of TV? Best connection for SC-BT100 is via HDMI out on SC-BT100 to HDMI in on TV, otherwise you aren't getting full HD output. Make sure your TV is set to correct input source.....
There should be a "module" that you slip into a slot on the back of the main SC-BT100 unit...this is the transmitter that sends the signal to the rear speaker unit. The rear speakers, while "wireless" to the main unit, are wired to the separate unit that should have come with your set-up.
