Re: No sound from system when watching TV

I figured out a solution...I tried the red & white audio in/out, and it did not work. The only thing that will work is using an optical cable...$25 at Radio Shack...worked like a charm!

Re: No sound from system when watching TV

I've been having the exact same problem myself. I'm no expert on electronics, but the one thing I haven't yet done is go out and purchase an audio cable. An audio cable is a simple little cable, with two input jacks: one red, one white, on both sides. You put the red one into the red slot on your TV, and the white one in the white slot (it should be labeled "Audio OUT"). Then put the other end into the red and white slots in the system (should be labeled "TV"). Now I can't guarantee this will work, since I have yet to try it myself, but the manual does label the audio cable as "required - not provided" in the area where it talks about connecting your system to your TV, so it just might be that the audio cable is required for any sound to go from the TV to the system.

No color when playing DVD's on Sony DAV-HDX500.

What's different? The video connection type, maybe? If you're using Component cables (Red, Green, Blue) you might want to check their integrity.

Sony surround sound hookup

In short, the answer is: Hook up all three to each other. I have a Samsung DLP HDTV, and I was trying to hook up a Sony DAV-HDX500 home-theater system and a Comcast HD set-top box, but I found that the Sony user guide is helpful only for setting up the speakers. Most of what it had to say about HDMI and getting the TV sound or cable sound to go through the speaker system was wrong (or, at least, it didn't work for me). So, here's what I did. I connected Component video cables (Y/Pb/Pr out) from the Cable box to the TV (Y/Pb/Pr in), audio cables from the Cable box (audio out) to the Sony system ("SAT/Cable" audio in), and an HDMI cable from the Sony system (HDMI out) to the TV (HDMI in). This allows me to 1) watch DVDs with surround sound through the TV's HDMI source (when the "DVD" format is selected on the Sony system), 2) watch cable with surround sound through the TV's Component source (when the "SAT/Cable" format is selected on the Sony system), and 3) watch cable WITHOUT the surround sound, as I did before I ever had the Sony system. One item of note: When watching a non-HD channel with the surrond sound on, the audio is slightly out of synch with the video; thankfully, there's no such problem on HD channels. Anyway, I hope this helps. It drove me crazy for two days straight!

No TV audio coming from Sony DAV-HDX500.

If you are trying to make your TV audio come out your Sony system, you didn't say what the input to your TV was from (ex;Cable TV,Sat TV).

Sometimes it is easier to take the external (cable or Sat) out puts and feed the video into the TV but the red white into the AMP (TV input)then select TV on your AMP to hear TV.

Also some tv's need to make a speaker choice! go to Set up and change the speaker set up for the TV, you may have to tell the TV no speakers to create out put to Amp from the REd White TV out put.
