The audio signal that your tv is producing is a stereo signal only - not surround. You should be able to manually put your receiver into a surround mode when using the tv input and get surround sound that way.
Hi, If I understand correctly form your question,you can not hook them unless your TV has 5.1 surround sound amplifier built in...Does it ? I doubt so.. in order to get a surround sound from your TV you need a 5.1 /7.1 DVD/Receiver and you can connect your TV to listen it thru Receiver ..Here is how you can do it.. ** connect "Audio Output " as either :"2xRCA jacks"or "Optic cable output" or "HDMI "connector " of your TV , ** to "RCA input jacks " or "Optic Cable input" or if you have "HDMI input" of your DVD/ Receiver ** than just switch to
respective mode on Receiver corresponding the connector you have used on the back of Receiver ..
There you go..your Tv sound are on the DVD/receiver as SURROUNDING SOUND. By this means ,whatever you watch on the TV will come thru your Receiver
Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know. Take care and please Remember to rate/vote for us to continue for Helping out the Community :)
AV cables don't pass surround sound through, they are pretty much just left and right stereo. You need to turn pro logic on on the reciever to "pretend" to play surround. The better option of course would be to use a digital signal like another HDMI cable or digital optical audio from the cable box, if thats what your using.
What kind of ports and cables are you using? Is there an option on your TV to output sound? *I have a samsung HDTV and for me to hook up a surround sound i have to go into my TV options and go to audio and select "Output : TV : Aux speaker system"
Are you sure your cord is working properly? The easiest way to bundle it all together is an HDMI cable.
Does you television have an "Optical Audio Output"? This would be the best and easiest way to get surround sound from your system. If your TV has an optical output the you can use an Optical Cable to connect the TV to the reciver. This way whatever you are watching from the TV will be in surround sound. The HDMI connection sends a surround sound signal from each device to the television. If you connect it to this output on the TV then make sure the optical output is turned on in you telivison's menu. If your TV does not have an Optical Audio Output then you will need to connect each optical output from the blu-ray and HDbox to your reciever. Your reciever will need to have two Input channels(one for each device). Then you can select that input to the device(blu-ray or HDbox) that you are using. The optical cable is the best way to go for surround sound because it is pure digital and produces the best sound. If the HDbox or Blu-Ray does not have an optical output then you will need the six rca jacks to get the surround sound. Let me know further info on what you have so I can assist you more.
Depending on if your surround system has a hdmi input or not. if it does you can connect the blu-ray player to it. If it doesn't have an hdmi input you will have to run the hdmi cable from the blu-ray to the tv then run a set of rca cables (red and white plugs) from the tv audio out to the surround systems' audio input jacks to get sound through the surround system. Most surround systems don't have an auxiliary input for another video device.
hook your front speaker wires up to the A side and on the front of it make sure only the A speakers are playing but leave the rear speakers plugged into the B side then hit the listen mode button and you should be rocking
I had the same problem on 3/21/09...I found it was the PS3 settings. I had to go into the visual settings (not sound) and change the linear sound to optic digital...but I also had to purchase a digital optical cable...plug everything into your tv instead of the receiver and then hook up the digital optical cable from your tv to the receiver. A it will work and b it is a better sound quality than that of the HDMI cable.
Do you have set-top-box or antenna-cable directly to TV? You have connected TV with received via HDMI, but that won't work in this direction - TV has HDMI INput only, not output. You can use HDMI to connect HDMI-out on DVD player for example to HDMI-in on receiver and HDMI-out of receiver to HDMI-in on TV. But to get sound from TV to the receiver, use spdif optical or coax cable if TV supports that - this way you will get surround sound. But also your connection via analog white/red RCA plugs should work, but only for stereo sound.
