Sc-ht500 system cable

I have a Panasonic home theatre SC-HT500 but no system cable which connects the main unit to the subwoofer.It even draws the power through this cable and is very expensive to replace.How can i find out what the pinouts are on the connector so i can wire it myself?

You cannot wire this system separately, since it is very difficult to separate the power cables from the others which carry the audio parts.if in any case , lets suppose, you could wire the dvd player separetely, you will have no audio since all the audio frequencies are transfered in this cable to the sub woofer and from there to the satellite speakers.
It would be useless to wire it even if we could as there would never be any audio, only video, no matter what disc you use as the only way the audio is comming is throught this system cable to the subwoofer. Actually its the worst idea to implement in a home cinema system, but well, this is old panasonic.. :)

I'd look for another base unit identical to yours (SA-HT500), say, on eBay and buy a BluRay for future compatibility with any components you might decide to upgrade to. Or just skip that part and upgrade now.

On page 6 it specifically says to use only the supplied speakers.

"Use only supplied speakers

Using other speakers can damage the unit and sound quality will be negatively affected."

I'd take that to mean you really don't want to redeploy the speakers to other electronics either. Theater in a Box is designed as a package. That proprietary cable connector is a huge clue and disincentive to attaching it to other electronics.

Replacing Panasonic SA-HT500 with Newer Model that has HDMI Input

ANY amp will be ok, as long as the wattage of your new amp does not exceed the wattage of your speakers. Otherwise you could overdrive your speakers and damage them. First clue, if you turn up the volume and the speakers start to shut off and on you are pushing too much power to them.

Not all the speakers are working despite ensuring the cables are

There is a button that says -Mix 2CH - make sure it does not say Mix 2CH ON, or you will only get 2 channels when watching DVDs. This Panasonic, as well as legions of other home theater systems, are more limited than they seem. The SC-HT500 can give you surround when watching DVD's on the unit, but you will not be able to get full surround for your TV, because the Panasonic does not have the right digital inputs.

Want to play my playstation thru my sa ht500 system

You will not be able to get full surround from your Playstation using this home theater system - if you use a red/white composite AV cable and connect it to the area marked TV AUDIO IN on the back of the Panasonic, you will be able to get stereo sound.

The SC-HT500 is only for use in the UK, Ireland, Australia, and a few other places - you will need at least a transformer if you want to try to use it in the US. The manual can be found here:

Its possible connect a 5.1 sound pc card to Panasonic SC-HT500 hearing the 6 separate channels?

I am afraid the answer is no - this particular Panasonic will only play full surround when watching DVDs. It does not have the right inputs to grab more than stereo sound from your computer.
