Sony Bravia Sync Selects Wrong Input

I have a 40'' Sony FullHD LCD TV and recently got a Sony HT-DDWG800 component hometheater system. The home theatre is connected to the TV via HDMI to HDMI input 1. A satellite decoder is connected to the theatre using SAT but only the RCU inputs and the coaxial for audio for DVD is assigned to SAT as this more superior sound than the optical input. Monitor out from Receiver also goes to the LCD video1 input.

When I enable Bravia Sync on both LCD and Receiver, power off on TV/Reciever switches off the other. Now when I select Video1 on TV to view Satellite decoder (www.dstv.com) Reciever switches to TV input! When I select SAT on Receiver, TV input selected is HDMI1. My satellite decoder is not HD as this model not launched yet. How do I make the Receiver switch to Video1 when I accept Video1 on the TV? When TV channel is selected the Reciever switches to TV which is fine. When I select Video1 I want to be able to watch Video1 input on Reciever. I have no problem with the LG DVD player connected to DVD input via HDMI as this automatically puts TV to HDMI1.

Why does the Receiver select TV when I set TV to Video1? Why does the Receiver on SAT put TV on HDMI when there is no HDMI connected on SAT?

SOURCE: My tv keeps defaulting to the Video1 blue screen.

You must take your unit in for servicing for intermittent control switching ic problems. You may just have some bad solder joints that appear after periods of use. You may also have failing solid state components like the switching ic or supporting components. It is best to have the unit tested and repaired in a service center where they have all the service infromation. You can call insignia customer support at 1-877-467-4289 You can also check the Insignia website for customer support at www.insignia-products.com. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

SOURCE: Toshiba Dvd won't work properly with my new TV

if your old tv was an analog one you need a digital converter box to change to the new signal.. new tvs wont recognize the analog signal..temporarily you may be able to use your laptops' dics player as a player for your discs..

My sony tv has a line across the screen that says bx42, full hd1080p, digital noise reduction, usb play, hdmi2, bravia sync, pc input, 24p true cinema and i cant get rid of it.


Hi mike harris,
i think your TV is on demonstration mode.

To turn off the demo mode, press and hold the HOME or MENU button on the TV for more than 10 seconds. The messageDemo mode: Off will appear on the screen.

it is most likely bc of a firmware update. i have heard of this problem while working at best buy. rarely do i see the bravia link actually fail. i would shut both off for a little while and connect them without the link then connect the link. kinda like a reboot of the whole system . hope this helps!

Can not get my Samsung TV to recognize the ht system. I am able to get the sound out of the ht system and the video on the tv when i play dvds but the sound will not transfer from the tv to the ht system...


The way mine is hooked up is like this: Ps3, DirecTV box all plugged to my samsung TV and then only thing I have plugged into the Ht box is the hdmi out to TV and an Optical Cable from Tv to HT box. All audio is going to Tv then to HT box and plays all through hometheater box when it is on. Try the optical cable

No sound from TV thru sony bravia hdx576wf; DVD & CD audio ok.


Could be a sync calibration issue. Try to divert the TV sound to another input source on the Hometheatre system if possible, if it is a go then maybe the TV audio needs to be recalibrated. Make sure TV audio setup menu option has not changed also.

Wiring problems


Not certain if HDMI can be used in a setup like this. I'd try it from the home theater (HT) to the TV, and other wiring for the other components.

For video:
All of these should have component connections (Y/Pr/Pb). You'll only need the video cables for each device:
  • Video out from cable, HT, and combo player.
  • Video in to TV. Your choice of inputs.
For audio:
Hopefully, the two output devices (the combo player and the cable box) have digital audio (fiber optic, or RCA coaxial). Otherwise, you'll only get stereo sound. VHS is stereo only anyway.
  • Audio out from cable box and combo player.
  • Audio in to HT.
The TV won't have anything to do with audio in this setup. Alternatively, you could try hooking up all inputs to the TV, and connecting audio out from the TV to the HT. Works best if this connection is digital, for surround.
