Surround sound I want to add surround sound to my new home Is this receiver going to do the job or do I need to buy a newer receiver

The unit has only 2 channels of output thus, cannot provide surround format. Depending on your sound needs, you will have to shop around for a good 5.1 or 7.1 surround unit

Which universal remote will operate every aspect of my dav-ex150 sony home theater system? Would like to adjust the settings for the speakers. As of now I only have sound coming from sub woofer and front...


On your receiver you should have a 'surround mode' and a 'display mode' which activate the surround speakers. If you are not in a 'mode' just the 'left', 'right' and 'sub' speakers will work. As for a remote, many of the newer receivers can be controlled via 'App' through a phone or tablet.
I hope this helps

Sound has gone off on my luxor TV

Use an external sound system such as a (pick your brand) home A/V receivers. Or buy a new tv. I prefer not to use the internal sound from a TV and instead run all audio through a home theater A/V (Audio Video) sound system. The surround sound adds so much to basic TV viewing.

first of all here is a link to the manual.... and yes it can be conected thru your comcast but you wil need to buy probably cheapest at wallmart an RF Modulator (Less than 20 dollars) and from your cable box (vidieo out, or to tv) install the cable to the rf mod unit (ant in) and that converts it from coaxial cable to rca (meaning a cord with yellow ,red,white push on connectors) plug the red and white into aux input on surround system (see #3 on manual view on backside of surround unit)and and you got it.It your tv does not have a yellow vidieo connection (which is where the the yellow plug into tv)in the back then add a coaxial splitter after the comcast box so that the 1 coax line goes to tv and the other coax goes to the rf mod then thru RCA cables to the surround may need to buy xtra cables but they are cheap. hope i may try asking family or friends for the above equipment i described.the newer tv's dont need it and many people have this stuff layen around...good look

No sound from rear/ surround speakers on Bose V20

Yes, very easy and cheap if you get it from the right place. Fiber Optic going from the output of the device to the input of the receiver. If your lucky enough to have an input/output fiberoptic in your tv, run the fiber from the device to the tv input, fiber the output of the tv to the receiver so not only are you getting the device full surround sound, but you'll also get better TV surround sound for those that are made with Dolby pro logic II sound. (pretty much all the newer movies and shows)

Philips Surround Sound w/ DVD and VHS

Well the dvd mechanism is probably broken now and that is the reason the system shutdown, philips can offer you a out of warranty exchange price to get it exchanged but they probably don't carry repair parts for this unit anymore, I would buy a new system

We have recently just bought a samsung htx250r home cinema. we have a 50 inch samsung plasma, the dvd player sound works using the hdmi cable but the surround sound does not work when we are watching...

Salutations ddog,

Really this is a question of sources. The reason your able to hear surround sound when connected to your DVD player is that is what is providing your audio and video source. When your watching television it would depend on how your getting your broadcasts. If you are either receiving an over-the-air broadcast or cable directly to your set, your television becomes the source. As your television is providing the signal, you would need it to loop back to your receiver to provide that surround sound.

Now for the good news, if you have a cable or satellite box these should have outputs to connect to your receiver to provide the audio source.

Also keep in mind not all broadcasts provide a version of surround sound. Most newer home theater systems will replicate surround sound artificially.

I hope this helps.

Sound Quality

Preferential Quality Connections in order of higher quality are: 1st>HDMI, 2nd>DVI, 3rd>Component/S-Video, 4th>Composite Video. Make sure you only use the surround setting on 1 of the 2 components, which ever is of better quality. If you use them both it WILL sound like mud. (older receiver-newer tv>probably tv) but you must connect all tv audio channel outputs to receiver. (newer receiver-older tv>receiver would be better)
Receivers also tend to have more wattage to drive larger speaker loads than most TVs. The key is to turn off the surround and SRS functions on the TV if you use the surround decoders on the receiver. Either way you use it, make sure you use the set-up feature to balance the outputs of the various channels for either source (the levels of the two will probably be very different).
