No they all are compatible with eachother no matter what brand tv,surrround sound. It is all in the hook up & without you stating how you have it hooked up,no way to tell because one siimple connection is all you r missing. You have it most way there if sound is ok on dvd.If you explain how you have it hooked up i can surley help you!!

Trying to connect a sony home theatre system so that the akai television plays through the home teatre speakers. I used an hdmi cable, but the tv still only plays threough the tv.


The HDMI jacks on the TV are HDMI in. Thus to get the theater system to play the sound, you use the HDMI out from your set top box to the HDMI in of the Sony theater system and then the HDMI out of the theater system to the TV. (Connecting the HDMI in of the TV to the HDMI in of the home theater system will not work.)

If you are watching OTA TV or a direct coax cable connection, you need to hook up the TV audio out to the home theater system audio in to use these speakers with the TV. Then you probably need to set the TV to use the external speakers. This will probably be in the Menu under Audio. (Toggle external speakers on/off)

The Akai LCT2785TA has RCA audio out (1/4" red and white jacks). If your home theater system has RCA audio in, just get a patch cable (MM ends on each side of the cable). If your home theater system only has digital audio inputs, you will need a converter. http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/audio-converters-extenders/analog-to-digital-digital-to-analog/1t-ap-216/prod1TAP216.html is a link to one appropriate converter.

I hope this helps.

Plasma tv/home theater


Is your Panasonic set to monitor the HDMI input? Just like selecting a mode input on the Tv you must also select the mode input on the surround system.

The specs say that it has an optical audio in on your home theater system. So the easiest way to hook up is to connect the optical audio out of your tv to the optical audio in of your home theater system and walla! What ever play on the tv will play on the home-theater system. You are looking for a Toslink optical audio cable

If you mean you are not getting sound from the tv through the theater system, then the problem may be that you need to connect an audio lead from the tv's audio out to the theaters audio in (aux in) and select the au or av as source.

Need some sound to my home theatre system


Just 2feb827.jpgrun red and white composite audio cables from the audio out ports above the AVin1 ports on the back of the tv to one of the audio input ports on the home theater system, remember which input port you connected it to and when you want to watch tv with the home theater sound just switch to that input on the home theater system.

No sound from TV only when playing DVD


Check carefully the RCA conections or others.Sometimes this conections break inwards end cause this problems.Check also the lead and the Set up from surround sound.Verify if the TV has settings for this kind of operation. A strong hug !!!
