Question about Sony Audio Players & Recorders
Surround sound system not playing TV sound. The tv is a NEC flatscreen not sure of the product name. The surround sound is a Sony HTSF2300. I run my cogeco cable through a dvd player. My yellow, red and white chords are connected through the tv and dvd player. I purchased a dynex digital audio cable that I connected to my dvd player and receiver to get the sound from the tv. The sound from the tv will still not play through the surround sound. Is there a special combination of settings I need to do or is there another product I must purchase?
White and red cables are for stereo (left and right channels). If you need a surround you'd have to connect using different sound ports

You need to run red and white from your tv to the surround sound and the same from your dvd to surround sound

If you have direct cable into the television, you will need to use an audio output if available on the back of your set into your HT system.
If you are using cable w/ a cable box you have two options. You can still connect everything directly into the TV then reroute the audio to the HT system... or, you could hook only video to the TV and audio from the cable box to the HT system. Really up to you.

While I could not find it in the manual, I found that you must
go to the menu, open Sound Options and set Speakers to "Fixed".
Note: If you turn off the Surround Sound or DVD player combination you must then go back to the menu and turn the speakers back to Televsion.

It all depends on the TV transmission. If it is stereo, you will get the surround sound. If it is not then you have to listen to ordinary sound.

You are using a new HD Cable box, that are using componet video cables for HD, Unfortunetly this receiver does not have componet inputs, so you will just have to run the audio from the televison directly to the receiver by connecting the video out and audio out from the television to the receiver's video Input one. This will require a normal RCA composite cables yellow,red,white. Connect one end of each of the cables to televisions output terminals, and the other to the input one on the receiver. Note: Your TV might have a seperate term called Monitor out, Connect the yellow here, and the red and white to audio out. You can do the same for the DVD but you have to use the same cables,Also the television will not display HD picture this way as this is not a HDTV Receiver. If you just want TV sound to the receiver then do not use the video(Yellow) cable just use the audio out terminals from the tv and connect to Input one on the receiver. you can do this with the cable box also but you have to use RCA type cables . If you want the full HD experience then a new up todate receiver is necessary.
