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.

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).

Have Technics SA-EX500 connected to Samsung Smart TV. For tv channels the sound is perfect but when I switch to Netflix or HBOGO the sound is static/cackling.


Suggest connecting via the headphones jack or if available the RCA audio output jacks. If you connect via the headphone jack you will need to adjust the TV volume to a lower setting to avoid distortion/./ The The problem is that the optical output connection is a digital connection and depending on the digital format the Digital to Analog converter may not be a configuration that the audio stream to the stereo required for the tv/vcr in.

How does the audio sound using the Samsung Smart TV internal speakers>

Also under menus/audio/settings you may need to change the Optical output to stereo.

Netflix also has settings that will change the audio stream.

Hope This helps?

Have lg 55ls5700 tv trying to connect samsung hw-f450


I suspect that the TV you have does not support the ARC function that the sound bar has. What you may have to do is use the Optical In from the sound bar to the TV and you should be good to go. You may have to change the TV's settings to use the Optical In though. So you should end up with the BluRay Player connected to the TV via an HDMI cable, the sound bar connected to the TV via the Optical In using a fiber optic cable. Hope this helps.

Connect with componet cables.


The only digital audio input for this TV will be via the HDMI input. Of course, even with HDMI in, you're only going to get a simple stereo output from the TV. You can use the analog L & R audio inputs for a very similar sound from the TV speakers.

The digital multi-channel audio (Dolby Digital, THX, 5.1, 7.1, etc) encoded in the program should be connected to a suitable multi-channel amplifier with either a TOSLINK (optical), RF (coaxial) or HDMI cable for theatre-like sound. This can be done by (a) cabling from the source (DVD, BluRay Disk, Set Top TV Tuner, etc.) directly to a multi-channel amp and speakers, or (b) from the HDMI output of these devices (DVD, BluRay Disk, Set Top TV Tuner, etc.) into one or both of the TV's HDMI inputs. This will provide only stereo sound output from the TV speakers. You should connect the TV's TOSLINK optical "Digital Output" jack with an optical cable to the amplifier's TOSLINK optical input jack to obtain theatre sound.

To listen to the program shown, you would select the amplifier input assciated with the optical, RF or HDMI input that is connected to the source (DVD, BluRay Disk, Set Top TV Tuner, etc.) if connected directly. If the TV HDMI input(s) are used, they are output to the TV optical output and should be connected to the amplifier optical input. The amp input associated with the optical input should be selected to hear the program with theatre-like sound.

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.

The digital audio outputs on televisions sometimes only work when the television is on certain inputs. It does not always work with all hdmi connected devices. I can almost guarantee you that if you connected an over the air antenna to this television and scanned for your free local television channels the digital optical out between the tv and the surround sound would work.Likewise if you have Comcast or one of the other cable carriers that has digital cable you could connect the coax cable directly between the television and the cable wall outlet without the cable box and get sound from the tv's digital audio output to the surround sound.

However there might be a digital audio output television setting you have not changed. Refer to the manual for that or call customer service if necessary.

I have skyhd connected to Lght-805sh via optical connection but when i turn sky over from a hd channel to normal channel there is no sound


Hi,

Not sure what you mean by "optical connection" but you need to connect your SkyHD box to your TV using both HDMI and SCART cables. Your Sky HD box will then send the signal via the HDMI cable for the HD channels and the SCART cable for the SD channels.

Hope this helps
