As long as the cables are properly connected you shouldn't lose quality in the sound. If its the front speaker cables you want to extend then contact sony and ask them for the rear cables which you can then substitue for the front ones which are considerably shorter.

Check speaker connections and wires and make sure all wires are plugged properly. If problem still exist then unplug speaker one=by-one and test home theater to determine what speaker is causing Protect error.

No sound from our Sony Wireless Home Cinema System


Basic checks first. Have you checked they are connected properly? Maybe used a different cable to check whether the rear cables are faulty? You may just have turned your system to 2.1 surrououn sound by accident or be playing a format that only supports 2.1. Check that in the system menu under dec. mode that if it is set to AFD STD that you are playing a DVD which shows can support 5.1 on the back of its cover. Also try running the setup manually and choosing your speaker configuration. Hope this helps.

Sony Model DAV ? SB 500W Home Theatre System


Please check at rear of TV for Digital Optical IN port as home theater should have optical out port at rear. If you got any optical in port in TV, just connect optical wire between TV and home theater.

2nd option is check Line Out pins at rear of home theater system, if found, hook red-white RCA cable there and put it to same input in TV where you hooked Video (composite or component) cable.

Let me know the results to help you more.

My dvd player (Sony dav s500 system) kept freezing and now always says"disc is dirty" and wont play. Can I connect another dvd player to the system? How would I connect the 6 speaker cables into the new...


Umm, this isn't just a DVD player, It.s an amplifyer too. Just leave the speaker cables alone, plug in the new dvd player into the "video2" jack, yellow cable onlt. Then,plug the audio cables into the video2 jacs (the red and white ones). Select "video2" on the SonyDAVS300 and "video2" on the tv. Insert the dvd into the new player and enjoy. It's screwy but it works through the amp and sends the picture to the tv.

Upgrading dvd to blu-ray - how can I use my existing surround sound speakers?


Unfortunately because your existing system does not have the option of connecting an external source, such as another DVD player, the only option you have is to reuse your existing speakers and purchase another amplifier. Trying to patch another DVD into your existing unit would require a bit of technical expertise which would be more trouble than it is worth. The all-in one concept is convenient but very limiting in terms of expansion.

Out door speakers


Salutations pspk,

Because there are special speaker connections on your unit it may make this harder to do. It may be possible to connect extra speaker wires directly to the end of your existing speaker wires. These wires could then be connected to a wireless transmitter or extender to feed sound to your speakers.

I will warn you this may cause sound quality issues as you would be basically splitting the power levels to your existing speakers.

I hope this helps.
