Kevin,

Try to access the "menu" of your TV screen and select " tuning mode" and click "auto program" and see if you can gain the channels that your looking for.

How do you connect tv audio from vizio wv26l through panasonic saht 680 surround sound?


The SAHT680 only has RCA analog audio inputs. I don't know the WV26l. However, there are a couple of possibilities based on other Vizio models. 1) The audio out is a headphone jack. Use a 3.5 mm M to RCA F/F adapter and then an RCA audio cable to the surround sound system. (You can also use a cable that has the 3.5 mm M and RCA M/M ends or a 3.5 mm F and RCA M/M adapter with a 3.5 mm audio cable.)
2) The audio output is a digital audio out. In that case, you need a digital to analog audio converter. There are a number of models available. One example is here: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=104&cp_id=10423&cs_id=1042302&p_id=6884&seq=1&format=2 . You will also need the correct digital audio cable between the TV and the converter and the RCA audio cable between the converter and your SAHT680.

The manual for the SAHT680 is available from Panasonic here: service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/SAHT680.pdf . See page 25 for the picture of the audio inputs.

I hope this helps.

(The only other option is to upgrade the main unit of the surround sound system to one with digital audio inputs if your TV only has digital audio out.)

Can't get surround sound for regular television. DVD sound is great but nothing on the TV channels either regular or HD


Only a digital audio source will produce surround sound.

What's the audio source you're using for TV sound? It shouldn't be the TV, but what IT's watching, like the cable/sat box.

just plug your satellite and dvd player in to your tv. and simply take an extra set of red, white, yellow wires and us use the red and white wires to connect fron your tv output to your surround sound system's input. now you should have surround sound for everything included local tv stations from your tv antenna

Do I need a converter box for a panasonic mnf. 2003


Your set does not come equipped with a digital tuner..if you do not have cable, and you use a set top or roof top antena, you will HAVE to get a converter box. You are losing channels because some broadcasters have decided to switch to digital, or "test" their digital BEFORE the febuaray switchover date.

Cant get my viera linked panasonic to play through surround sound


I had the same problem, so i contacted panasonic, I am including the email they sent me.


For connections of audio, so that you can hear all tv audio through the
surround system, connect either an optical audio cable or red & white
analog audio cables from the tv to the home theater. If you are using
optical audio, there is a plug on back of tv labeled for digital audio
output and an input on the surround sound system. If you plan on using
analog red and white, use the PROG OUT red and white output jacks on the
back of the tv to the AUX input on the home theater.

For video connections, to get HD you will need to be using either HDMI or
Component cables. HDMI is the cable that will provided 1080p signal (the
best HD signal), but if the source does not output 1080p, then your tv
will not display 1080p. Most cable boxes output at 1080i or 720p when on
HD stations. This signal still provides great picture quality, but HDMI is
not needed to get these HD signals. You can use component cables for your
cable box and the DVD player output to the tv for video. HDMI might give
you a slightly better picture quality but the signal will be the same.

To make the connection, you will want to connect from the cable box to the
tv (component or hdmi). Also from the home theater system to the tv using
hdmi or the video cables from component (red, blue, & green cables).

We hope this information is helpful to you.

Thank You,
Panasonic Consumer

Hooking up to digital cable box


Darth,
There are 2 ways you can accomplish this.First is the least quality which is via coax.What you want to do is connect the cable service coming from the wall to the input on your cable box.Then the TV output on the cable box goes to the input on your surround sound then the coax goes from the surround sound to the coax input on the TV.The second is to Connect using the RCA AV1 input.what you want to do is look at the back of the digital cable box and locate the OUTPUTS for the RCA jacks(or AV output)connect RCA cables (yellow red white) to the 1st INPUT on your surround sound.depending on models you should have a couple of different INPUTS for a signal.Choose one and plug it in.After that take a second pair of RCA cables and connect them to video OUTPUT on the surround sound and connect them to your AV1 OUTPUT on your TV.With the original remote for your TV,NOT the cable universal one,Look for an INPUT button on the remote.Some are called input some are called SOURCE,TV/VIDEO basically it tells the TV what signal source to look at on the back of the TV.If you dont have the remote put the TV on channel 3 then press the channel down button and when the TV gets to channel 1 press it again and it should start cycling through the AV inputs,choose AV1.


Once you have done this you have correctly
hooked everything up,BUT Like I said depending on the model of surround sound you are going to have to CHOOSE or physically select or "tell" the surround sound receiver which input to RECEIVE the sound through.In general the INPUT on the back of the surround sound will be labeled with something like Video IN,VCR IN, DVD IN and so forth.Make sure the surround sound is selected to Receive the sound coming from the digital box.Sometimes there is a dial on the front of the surround sound that allows you to select which INPUT on on the back becomes active .make sure that what you have selected matches what you have your cable box is connected to.Hope this helps!
