Link your optical cable from your HD box to your surround sound.
Then if you go into your HD services menu, press 4 then go to sound make sure its set to Dobly D
That should sort your problem out

    I will put this in its simplest form.



    Sky Hd box > TV = (you only want a picture no volume.) use the HDMI cable here.



    Sky Hd Box > Cinema Surround = (dont need a picture only sound) use the Optical Cable



    with your sky remote. do the following.



    SERVICES

    4

    scroll to SOUND then Digital audio output is set to DOLBY D and not NORMAL remember to save the settings.



    If i was you i would also get some audio leads the red and white push in ones. The reason I say that is not everything on sky is transmitted in Dolby D so it would be worth putting these in so it would support all the broadcasted programs. These's would be connected from your HD box to your Surround sound



    To find out if a program is transmitting in Dolby D simply press the i button on your sky remote and it will tell you on the top right of the banner screen. ie HD, DD, W etc etc



    hope this helps you out.

    P.s on your sky remote press TV Guide, Red button and choose a film from your anytime.... and crank up the surround sound. Ooh dont forget your pint of carling.

SOURCE: Connecting to HD TV

This TV has no HDMI input socket. It Has a DVI input socket. Therefore you will require an HDMI to DVI converter adapter or an HDMI to DVI cable. The DVI is video only so you will require audio cables from your Sky box (Audio L and R ) which will connect to the back left of your TV (Audio L/R sockets next to the s-video and component video connectors)

One of the way to connect the whole system is using only HDMI cable version 1.3a. There is audio return channel built into the cable.So you do not have to connect the optic cable.
Sky box to TV using HDMI
LG HT805 to TV using HDMI. Even the Sky box audio will come back to the LG-HT through the audio return path.

Hello,
There are two things that I can suggest.
1-Test your optical cables to make sure they a good on a known working source because they are very fragile and break very easily.
2-Try to eliminate the use of optical output from tv to receiver. There may be a problem from the HDMI to optical conversion at the tv. Instead, try running the audio directly from the source to the receiver, and let the tv deal with video input only.
Hope this helps,
Good Luck.

Problem with optical input of lght 33s surround


If the slot in the LG system is an input then it won't necessarily show a red light. The connectors are usually very positive though, so check that the TOSlink connector is the right way around, and that there is nothing in the socket which is stopping it from engaging.

Currently i have a sky hd box connected to my tv by a hdmi cable i want to connect my ipod into the sky box so i can play music videos ipod and sky box are close together and i don't want to connect ipod...


This isn't possible, the USB on the front of the Sky HD box is not active. I don't have any information on whether it will be in the future.

Your only option is to connect the iPod via TV or if you have a surround sound amp

it will work with your tv providing your tv has the correct output and you have the right cables. the programme must also be broadcast in surround, most programmes are only stereo. if you are running sky or sky hd this will be different so repost.

HOW TO CONNECT SAMSUNG 40 LCD TV TO SAMSUNG SURROUND TZ215 THRUGH SKY + HD BOX.


you will need the following = HDMI LEAD
Optical Audio Lead
Red and White phono Lead

Sky HD Box > connect to Tv via HDMI Lead.

Sky HD box > Connect the optical Audio, and the Phono Leads To your Surrounds sound.

The reason I am wanting you to connect the phono's as well as the optical audio out. Not all programs are transmitted with Dolby D so you will need these for normal sound to come through your surround sound.

One last thing I would like you to check is the sound settings on your Hd box.

OLD PROGRAM GUIDE:
On your sky remote. Press SERVICES, 4, 2, then ensure that Dolby D is displayed if not highlight and using the blue button change this to Dolby D. then arrow down to save.

NEW PROGRAM GUIDE:
On your sky remote. Press SERVICES, 0, Arrow along to SOUND then arrow down and change this to DOLBY D Then press the GREEN button.

Hope this Helps you out. IF so please leave a thumbs up

How do i connect to sky hd and sony kdl 40w 4710 and dav-is10 i have hdmi from skyhd to tv and hdmi from home cinema to tv what else is required as i cant get surround sound from tv


you need a Optical audio cable, run this from the back of your Sky HD box to the Surround sound. Not all Broadcast are transmitted in DD so press your i button on the sky remote and you will see this on the yellow bar above the program information if it is..

Might be worth running a set of White and Red audio cable from the HD box to the Surround sound as well that way you can just mute your telly and have the lot coming through the surround sound system.

Hope this clears things up for you

No picture on TV through Sky, Home Cinema is on but have sound.


do have sound and picture at same time you will need a fibre optical cable, you connect that from your cinema system to your tv. then you need to set your cinema system to digital input or fibre optic or check by pressing aux on your remote and see which is the right one. i am not familier with panasonic as i have samasung.
