HDMI is prone to audio issues---it does not for example like being connected at either end with the units powered up and or on.

Try disconnection of power to both units for a short time--do it with the HDMI disconnected. Then connect HDMI back at both ends and power the units on----it cannot hurt and it may help.

The other alternatives are the HDMI in the set is acting up or even bad---If the player has Component outputs try going that way to the set---I have never been able to see a difference in picture or sound quality from component to HDMI.

The only advantage it has is less cables in my view.

Bypassing built-in TV/DVD Player for another DVD player


Connect another DVD player to an unused input port on the back of the tv. If there is a HDMI port available connect it there if the dvd player has HDMI. Then all you have to do is change the input number on the tv. If you get picture but no sound, use RCA audio cables from the player to the tv. Not all HDMI cables pass audio.

Hi,here is my simple solution...
To listen your TV on your
samsung ps wx30 surround sound system ,
** you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" or "HDMI out " of your TV unit
** to "AUX input " or "TV" OR "Any input" of your
dvd player or "Optic Cable input" or "HDMI input"
** than just switch to respective mode on
dvd player corresponding your RCA or Optic connection or HDMI ..
.
There you go..Your TV sound is on the
dvd player By this means whatever you watch on the
TV (
tuner, satellite , Xbox , etc..) ,it's sound will come thru your
dvd player.

Hope this helps!..if more he?p requires pls let me know..

No sound coming to the speakers.


What is the model number of your receiver?
Many receivers don't support audio over HDMI, they just switch the signal from hdmi-in 1-4 to hdmi-out, but can't analyze the data to take audio out of it. Your receiver is probably one of those.
You need to connect the DVD player also via spdif digital cable. Look at the player to see if it has optical (square black plug) or coax (orange RCA plug) connector. Receiver probably has both of them.

Audio doesnt come thru my hdmi cable from the dvd player. And video doesnt go thru hdmi cable to projector. Have to run rca cables to both


Hi there
Check your DVD players' settings/manual to ensure the HDMI port is the default output port. Also confirm that both audio and video are enabled on that HDMI channel as it can be separated to be only video or only audio in a lot of cases.
Confirm you are at least getting video out from the DVD with a direct connection to your projector with the HDMI cable.
If video is making it to the projector direct from the DVD, you will need to confirm your amp is monitoring the HDMI input if there isn't a specific input selection for it. Connect your DVD to the amp and your amp to the projector and test again that you are still getting video AT LEAST. This will help narrow down which device is not playing the HDMI game if you still have issues at this point.
To sum up;
Confirm HDMI is the default output from the DVD for both audio and video.
Ensure you are getting video AT LEAST with a direct test to projector.
Confirm your amp is monitoring the HDMI input coming from the DVD.
Hope this helps.
