Question about Televison & Video
I have purchased two different Sony Sound Bars and can't get either one to work straight from the TV. I have an Apple TV and an Xbox connected to the sound bar receiver (Sony sound bar model HT-CT550W). Both worked just fine when going through those sources. There is not an optical connector on the TV. I purchased a CBF Signal-Optical G OEM part number BN39-01154M and this didnot fit any connector on the TV.

The optical output is always on.......you will see that the cable is lit up at the end when you plug it in........you may have to set your sound bar for the optical input though........do you have that manual?

I just had the same problem. I returned it to currys and got an exchange because I thought there was somethink wrong with the surround sound itself. I have just tried , and left for ages as it goes out of sync gradually as you said ,the red/white cables (rca , i think it's called)and it works perfectely. You can find the wire for quite cheap just type it in google.

SOURCE: Audio connection
You need to connect your stereo to the L and R audio out connectors and then go into the menu for audio and select either external for using only the stereo or "center" to use the stereo speakers plus using the TV speakers as a center speaker.

depend on what you wants to do. if you wan to get sound from your tv on receiver connect out from tv to in on receiver if U have optical out from tv send this to optical input on your receiver and set up your receiver to impute to digital HDMI carrie sound and video...
(My Denon receiver set-up shows an HDMI cable going from the Video Out on the TV to the HDMI MONITOR OUT on the receiver)
OUT TO OUT don't make sense ...could be out to impute you may have HDMI going from receiver to TV and other HDMI imputs on receiver to use receiver as distribution unit say you have satellite HDMI, DVD HDMI, Computers HDMI IMPUTE all of this connected to your Receiver and the HDMI monitor out from your receiver connected to TV so now you may select any of this sources to wach In your TV and lessen trough receiver speakers

Make sure you have the tv volume turned right down as this will cause an echo,also set amp to prologic 2, and set up xover to suit your speakers or go for the THX standard of 80 hrtz and as a rule of thumb set front L,C,R speakers to zero rears to about +4or5 and your sub to -5[ dont know which speakers you have but try setting the subs on board volume to the 10,o,cloak position],also make sure the speakers -,+ are wired the same at the amp and speakers.
Hope this helps.
