Re: no innputs on my ht

I believe that you will need to purchase the accessories from Sony, such as either the Component Input, or HDMI. The accessories plug into the built-in DMP. Your best bet is to consult a Sony Service Center in person, hopefully with your preferred satellite input connection "in-hand".

Have lenoxx ht 500 surround sound speakers & dvd but dvd is broken, need to purchase another dvd player but can't source lenoxx model, what other models can i connect surround sound to? or whe

If your surround sound receiver unit has rca audio inputs(red/white), you can hook up any brand of DVD player that has rca outputs. You would hook the yellow output from DVD player to yellow input on TV. Hook red/white output from DVD player to red/white input on surround receiver. Hope this helps.

I purchase a Panasonic Blu-Ray Home Theatre SC-BT330PCK with the intent of using it as a surround sound system for my TV and having a Blu-Ray as a bonus. Is it possible to have them work independently?

Hello there,

Yes it is possible and relatively simple to do. I suspect you have only connected an HDMI cable from the Home Theater system (HT) to the TV. This cable only sends audio and video to the TV from the HT system - it can't be used to receive the audio from the TV back to the HT.

To get audio from the TV channels through the HT speakers, you will need to connect a separate audio cable from the AUDIO OUT sockets on the TV to the HT. This can be either a Digital Optical cable (connects to socket ringed in green) or an RCA type stereo audio cable (connects to AUX sockets ringed in red).


If you are using a cable or satellite receiver, you should connect the receiver directly to the HT rather than the TV. You would also need to select the correct INPUT on the HT when you want to use the speakers for the TV channels. This will be DIGITAL 1 if using the digital optical cable or AUX if using the RCA stereo audio cable.

The audio connections are explained on page 16 of your user manual and input selection is explained on page 23. If you don't have a manual, please let me know and I can supply one.

I can draw you a diagram showing how to connect your TV to the HT and provide step-by-step instructions for setting it up, but you will need to let me know the brand and model number of your TV. If you are using a cable or satellite receiver, please let me know the brand and model number of this receiver as well.

Hope this helps.

Can I connect a Sony DVD Player DVP-SR90 to the Panasonic Home Theatre SC-HT75 to achieve surround sound without direct SCART connection - and how?

You can connect your Sony DVD player to your Panasonic HT using an analog RCA audio cable (white and red) for stereo sound. Connect to the AUX inputs on the HT and select AUX. Since the Sony DVD player only has SCART, you would need an adapter, scart to RCA. Like this one:

Check for compatibility. Use the red and black RCA plugs for the audio into the HT.

Your Panasonic HT does not have a digital audio input which would be required for multi-channel surround sound (Dolby Digital 5.1)

No audio from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100 7.1

if you are using an HDMI cable dont expect sound to come out (even thought HDMI carries both audio and video) the onkyo HT-s5100's Receiver is the HT-r560. the 500 models of the onkyo receiver does not allow HDMI to carry both audio and video. it only allows the video signal to pass to the receiver.

if youre using optical for audio w/c is what you need then these are the steps you need to follow.
*first make sure that the optical connections are ok at the back of the receiver.
*make sure that your DIGITAL INPUT is set to either OPT1 or OPT2 whichever optical input you used to connect the optical cable.
*then go to your PS# settings : go to sound settings / audio moutput settings/ select digital out (optical).

then enjoy.....ü
