I had this same problem. The easiest thing to do is to have an HDMI cable from your TV to your cable box. You'll also need an audio digital optical cable. Connect this cable from the back of your cable box to the back of the receiver. Then just put the source to digital in on your receiver and you'll be all set.

Try to connect TV AUDIO OUT to TV AUDIO IN or AUX IN on receiver, when you get sound from TV, select SURROUND mode on receiver.

Can't get cable sound to run through surround sound

You would have to have a cable box, from the cable box, you would hook up the yellow to your tv, and then the red/white audio would go to the subwoofer on your DVD765 where it is labeled (TV), you then hit the switch on the subwoofer to TV. Another option is if your TV has audio output, you could just run RED/WHITE audio from your tv to the back of the subwoofer where it is labeled (TV).

I have a pioneer vsx 818 v amp, when I set it up we get noise / beeps etc from the surround sound speakers but then when playing a film in 5.1 we get no sound from the surround speaks ..driving me nuts !...

To get sound out of your surround speakers, first off go through the receiver setup and make sure that is correct. Also, usually the best soundfields to use for sourround sound is PLII Movie or dolby digital. Next , make sure the source you are viewing is capable of outputting 5.1 sourround sound. Lastly, it is a good thing to remember that sourround speakers are only intended to reproduce sound effects. You certainly can override it so that all speakers play full range audio, but that is not the intention.
Good Luck

I have rca home theater system rtd215 plays dvds fine but no sound when im watching tv programs i have no cable box just the jacks on my tv [52 projection screen phillips] and i tried hooking them into the...

This reson you are not hearing any "TV AUDIO" through your RCA surround system would be due to your tv sound output not being connected to an audio input into your surround system. You can hear DVDs,CDs and radio possibly mp3 if connected, as these are built in to the amplifier which the speakers connect to.
If the tv has a Line out (via phono plugs) and NOT via headphone out, connect it to an audio input on the RCA surround system. If the RCA has no other available inputs, well....there ain't a lot you can do but watch CSI with the sound from the TV and then Star Wars (for example) through the TV and Surround system.

Surround sound hookup

Hook your satelite receiver to your TV. Then run from your TV audio out to your surround sound system. This should make your surround sound system work with anything your TV is playing.

Surround sound hookup question?

It looks like all you'll need to do is hook up audio out from DirecTV to audio in on the surround sound system. Sony has an interesting hookup recommendation guide on the product support site:

That should give you the connection options. The short answer, though, is to connect the best audio out from DirecTV to an audio in on the surround sound and then choose that option in the surround sound system when you want to watch TV.

Surround sound

Make sure the RCA cable is going from an audio OUT on TV or DirecTV box to a red/white (non-digital) audio IN on surround sound or home theater system.
