Question about Sony HT-CT100 Theater System

2 Answers

I have the Sony HT-CT100 and my PS3 hooked up through it via HDMI. How come whenever I watch blurays the display always says 2.0 and not 5.1? The only time it says 5.1 is when I am watching shows from the dish. Is there a setting in the PS3 that needs to be changed????

It's because the HT-CT100 is a 2.1 speakers-system.It's a vitrual surround sound, but it's still only a 2.1 system.

hook up computer straight to t.v with hdmi cable. then get two aux cables (usually red and white) and run them straight from tv audio OUTPUT to audio INPUT on bose system. them anytime you want surround sound even when your watching tv just press the aux button on the bose system controller. should be perfect.

Sony HT-CT100 soundbar + STR-DG720 = Yes misery, no audio


It's not going to do whayt you want. On the premise that you can't run a dedicated receiver to a dedicated receiver. One processor is not going to override another. The soundbar is a "self contained" closed system. Much like Bose products. I understand what you are looking for, it just can't be done with this product. Options: replace the sony soundbar with a passive polk soundbar or similar and keep the AV receiver or: Return the AV receiver and use the nice, but limited sony amplified soundbar. Hope this helps

Macbook Pro DVI---> HDMI + Digital Optical Out = Problem w/ Sound


On the Sony The HDMI takes "priority" over all others, that's why you loose audio. If you run your DVI/HDMI to the TV and optical to the soundbar that would fix your issue. If your TV does not have Multiple HDMI inputs, you can get a DVI/Component adapter for your MBP then run it to the TV, or, If you have to have HDMI just to have HDMI, you can get a 2:1 HDMI switch and still have optical to your soundbar. Make sense? If youneed more help, just post a comment and I'll help some more.

Issues Displaying picture from HDMI upconversion


I've posted this other places. Hope it helps.

My HT-S6100 had a similar problem with my DVD player and some times with my Cable/DVR box. The signal wasn't getting received at the TV. So, first I changed the input jacks my DVD and Cable box are plugged into on the receiver (e.g. from HDMI 1 & HDMI 3 to HDMI 2 & HDMI 4). Second, I reprogrammed the Input Assignments to match (e.g. HDMI in 2&4). Third, I deleted any Input Assignments that weren't applicable. For instance, I'm only using HDMI connections, but there were Digital and Component Input Assignments programmed in. When I say I deleted them, I actually set them to "----" (just scroll through the options and you'll find this.) Finally, I turn on my video/audio sources (PS3 in your case) and let them load/warm up before I turn on my Onkyo receiver. It seems to be working. Good luck.

No sound from speakers


This isn't going to be a one-size-fits-all answer. Nor is the exact cause necessarily going to be one switch setting wrong.

Let's start with something as simple as possible.

Tune an FM station so nothing could possibly be cable-related. Get your sound set up with that in simple Stereo then we can move on to tackling individual source problems and 5.1.

The various other devices you're using for HDMI have menus themselves that could be causing problems with each of them.

For your DVD or Blu-Ray. If it has a Coaxial Digital Output, run it to the Coax In DVD input to test the audio from that device. One conductor of a standard RCA cable will suffice. If it works but the HDMI doesn't we'll deal with it later. If it doesn't work, the device is the problem (setup, most likely).

Try the same with anything else that doesn't work via HDMI, if you have a Coax Digital Output on it.

----
Device doesn't work through HDMI or Coaxial Digital:

I would suggest careful examination of one problematic device's settings, say, the DVD. Debug it using the analog outputs first since they're the simplest. Connect it's L/R output to the AUX input. Once you're sure the program can play and produce audio, go back to debugging the HDMI input and see how that works out.

If it works, use the DVD to test the other non-working HDMI input. Just swing it over there and if the receiver is set up properly you will hear it. If it's good, go to your other HDMI source, say, Blu-Ray or Cable Box, and plug it into the input you just certified to debug it. See?

Note: Don't take the labeling of the HDMI inputs literally. They are not married to the device types their labels imply. Freely interchange among them.

Page 60 of the manual talks about setting the IN MODE:

No sound with ps3, connected to a 7.1 av receiver & projection tv


Hi...the HT-R800 Home Theater system has the HT-R550 receiver which could only carry Video via HDMI. you would need to connect a separate audio cale(Optical Audio Cable) to be able to get audio out of the PS3 to the receiver. Once you have hooked up an Optical Audio Cable you would need to go in the PS3 setup and putin Bitstream and Optical in the Audio Setup menu.
