Receiver & Speakers for Plasma TV

I have a Plasma TV (HP-4254) and DVD converter (DVD-1080P7) both products made by Samsung. I am looking for a receiver without a DVD player (so I can hook up my converter) and a couple of speakers made by Samsung for my TV. Thanks for the recommendation. Tom

Re: Receiver & Speakers for Plasma TV

It really depends on how much you want to spend. A home theater set=up will probably be a bit hard to get without a DVD player. Let me know your budget, and I will see what i can come up with. Do you have to stick with Samsung by the way?

Can I hook up this receiver to a Panasonic Viera tv tc-L32C3

U need to get a digital to analog converter for the tv digital outputs on "tv mode." Connect the analog outputs to the audio input of receiver. I had same hassle with my Viera till I got another receiver that would take direct digital input - no more need for converter.

Onkyo tx-sr604 help

You said you tried hooking the HDMI up directly from the TV to each component, and that worked. How is it usually hooked up - through some kind of switch? I'm not completely understanding your setup here.

I have a Denon 1611 hooked up with XBOX, DVD, and CHARTER CABLE BOX to a SAMSUNG UN55C8000. For whatever reason I have no sound coming from my (TV) speakers and no sound at all when I switch to my game...

It would appear that your receiver, from pictures I looked at, has 4 HDMI in and 1 HDMI out. Looking at the specs of the tv, it has 4 HDMI in. I'm guessing that you have your receiver set up with speakers and sometimes you'd rather listen to tv speakers? I didn't download a manual however, usually to get sound from tv speakers you may have to turn off av's speakers or, there may be a way to bypass. If you could give me more info on hookup and what you want to do I could probably be of more assistance.

Hello, i have a prob. my yahama receiver RX-V461 has no HDMI but my samsung plasma has 3 HDMI. my question, is there a cable that has ( yellow,white,red ) and at the end of the cable is a connector going...

If you really want the TV to have a high-res video feed from your receiver and the TV has the component video inputs, you'll could use that option for the video and it will look fine. On my HD TV I can't tell the difference between it and HDMI.

There are converters out there but they're electronic, not simply a modification of the cable to make it fit. I wouldn't bother with them...

My $.02...

I'm not a member of the run-all-video-into-the-receiver club, believing instead that the various signals would fare best if they went directly from their sources to the best electronics you have to handle them. Therefore, I run all video directly to my TV from the BluRay, DVD, Cable Box, VCR and all the best digital audio available from each of them directly to the receiver.

I see no benefit in running any signal unnecessarily through multiple devices (with possible cable and connection issues; and conversion anomalies) on its way to my eyes and ears.

My TV gets bare-bones composite video from the receiver just for the On Screen Display and basic analog audio from a DVD player and the cable box just in case I have Lo-Fi watching that doesn't need great sound. That way I don't even need to turn my receiver on for news, weather, documentary DVD's, etc.

TV/DVD surround sound through receiver

Try running digital audio from the source - cable/sat - to the receiver. The fewer intervening connections and entities, the better. TV's are NOT considered sound sources for high end purposes or we wouldn't have Yamaha HTR-5860's and better speakers, would we?

I have a kenwood vr-707 it gets surround sound on dvd/vcr but I can't get surround sound on just tv.

Well you have a built in decoder/surround processor that will detect a signal with the surround sound info(dvd/sat.receiver/cable converter etc.) and will then process it to the different speakers on your system. In the absence of that signal it will process it as standard stereo sound(two front speakers). You may want to look in your receiver functions/menu for simulated surround.
Hope this will help.

Echo when connecting Samsung Plasma to Onkyo TX-SR602

Make sure you have the tv volume turned right down as this will cause an echo,also set amp to prologic 2, and set up xover to suit your speakers or go for the THX standard of 80 hrtz and as a rule of thumb set front L,C,R speakers to zero rears to about +4or5 and your sub to -5[ dont know which speakers you have but try setting the subs on board volume to the 10,o,cloak position],also make sure the speakers -,+ are wired the same at the amp and speakers.

Hope this helps.

No Video from Denon AVR-588
