SOURCE: Hi, my tv is connected

This advice may fly in the face of the manual but it will result in the best sound and vision your gear is capable of.

You need to understand the directions audio NEEDS to go in order to manage it.

The BEST solution for watching and listening is to have the BEST electronics and the BEST devices handling the BEST sources of audio and video, respectively.

The FM & BLU-Ray are INTERNAL to the DAV so no cabling is needed for them nor will it affect them.

UNLESS your TV has superior sound to your audio equipment (unlikely), your TV is probably not going to be the absolute best AUDIO SOURCE. Many TV's (monitors) don't even have speakers so why should they be in the audio loop other than for watching news or weather?

Your Cable Box, Sat Box, any other external A/V sources will probably have facilites for presenting audio and video to separate devices. HDMI will carry digital audio and video. If THAT is the best a source has to offer, run it to the TV first as no signal ever benefits from multiple connections or 'hops'. That same high-end device probably also has a separate digital audio output. Run THAT to your best audio electronics for the same reason as above and to give it first crack at decoding the multichannel information it needs. Repeat for all other sources if you have inputs to support them everywhere. Lacking multiple digital audio outputs, opt for analog stereo to the lowliest audio device (the TV) and send the best to the Sony. That way, if you just want the TV on for company or news you can leave the Sony turned off.

Helpful hint: Coaxial digital audio cables can be joined using an RCA cable splitter so they can share a given input or distribute a given output to multiple places. You just have to remember to have only the DESIRED units turned on when sharing or there will be digital confusion on the buss and it will result in silence or horrendous noise.

SOURCE: I just bought a sony ht-ddwg700 home theater

Using the optical cable for the sound, first you have to configure the PS3 sound settings to output via optical. Then, the receiver must be in the "SAT" input, by pressing the according button in the remote (or the receiver itself).

HI Guys. I just upgraded to DirecTV HD-DVR ( I have aHR24-200) installed which is connected via HDMI to my Samsung HD TV. I have a Samsung HT-C550 Digital Home Theater System which is now directly...


You're correct and that is exactly how I always recommend setup (contrary to what the manuals tell you). It makes no sense to me to run any signal through any electronics or interconnections that neither use it nor improve it. Hence, I have NO SOURCE VIDEO going to or through my receiver and NO high end audio going to my TV (which could just as well be a monitor with NO audio capabilities, right)?

Audio electronics should receive the BEST digital audio directly from it's root source.
The TV should receive the BEST video directly from ITS root source.

THAT is why most all high end A/V gear has separate audio and video in/outputs.

If that means you have to make some switching choices when using different sources, oh well. At least you won't have experience potential degradation from multiple hops or have to troubleshoot problems that could be anywhere in that chain.

How do I hook up a ps2 so it will play in the surround sound for a samsung ht tx72


Your HT is only capable of inputting an external audio signal, either via analog RCA (red/white) or via an digital optical cable. The video of your PS2 will then be connected directly to the TV.

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.

Samsung Series 6 TV - cannot get TV to go through Home cinema speakes


Ok, the Audio can only be transfered to the HT if it is connected via something other than the HDMI, (the HDMI is just 1 way accept for the Anynet function (which is great with the 6 series. I have the LE52-A656))

The audio can be transfered via component cables but you will get the best out of your system using an optical cable. The main reason for optical is it ability to transfer 5.1. Only problem is the Samsung does not output 5.1!! bugger!! one you have connected it via the optical too. just set the HT to D-IN and you should be goo to go! :) There maybe something i have missed but Im at work at the mo but let me know how you get on :)
