SOURCE: I have the Panasonic SC-BT100

Cooling fan is probably dirty or not running. Check the fan by removing it with the two screws on the back and make certain that it's plugged in and the short, black wire (that appears to go to nothing) is "securing" the plug to the board.

SOURCE: blu ray connect to my sc-pt660

Why not leave the audio into the TV via HDMI from the Bluray and then optical audio out from TV to the home theater audio system? Same as the hook up for the cable box. The SC-
PT660 only has one optical audio connector so your solution may not be feasible assuming he's also got a cable box connected to the TV.

On my Panasonic SA-BT230 blu ray player it will not recognise my external hard drive in the USB port, how do i fix this? thanks

hi i have a 500gb external hard drive with its own power supply, also same blu ray player, to get it to recognise your usb device you need a tool like mini tool partition wizard i got mine from a torrent site but im sure it has a free trial, any way connect your HDD to a computer and back up all data before continuing, then open the partitioning tool (these options are not available in windows which is why you need third party software) select the HDD and select delete (only after you have backed up your data), then apply once this is complete you will see the HDD is is now "unallocated" select the drive again and select create on this box select fat32 file system and change from logical drive to primary and give it a name if you like then hit ok then apply and thats it. move all your data back and it will see the drive again.
I should mention that i hit one snag when i did this, as you know the bluray player will play movie files .AVI and not .MKV or .MP4 but once i carried out this operation my blu ray player (sa-bt230) will play these other formats but not the .AVI ones, which in the manual is states it will not play the others only .AVI's.
not a problem as such for me as i can now watch my downloads in better res and with DTS sound.
hope this helps
