Trouble setting up sony soundbar surround sound, is tv arc compatable?

I cannot get the soundbar to produce sound, it is hooked up as directed from Sony, it indicates tv must be arc ready, no idea if tv is or not, nothing provides this information. I have not hooked up the optical cable, as it will not fit in any of the outlets. Is there a specific hmdi outlet to use, none seem to be labeled as diagram indcates?

Arc ready is when there is electricity plugged into the TV,There is only one HDMI cable and that is the one you have. Cause all new TV's come with these cables.If you are using Av cables for the sound it will not work ,you must only use HDMI cable's.Cause some or most new TV's with HDMI dont like to use Av cables with HDMI,so if you havw something else that uses Av cables plug it out and sound will work.

SOURCE: proscan tv surround sound hook up

This depends on whether you have digital cable box or not. If you have a Digi Cable Box look for the red/white RCA output and connect this via RCA cable to the Red/White Audio input on your surround.

If just Basic Cable look for a red/white audio output on the back of your televison. connect this to the Red/white in on your surround. Could be called tv in or auxillary.

How do I connect my ht ct260h step by step, with hdmi input do I use


HDMI can be a bit confusing when first connecting a system. Overall, the HDMI cable system allows for less clutter and digital audio and video, but you need some background to get it right.

The simple answer to your question is that the HDMI on your TV that is labeled HDMI out will go to your soundbar's HDMI input. Now, the reason you have a picture but no sound, will be one of 2 problems. If your TV is labeled with ARC, this means that it has an HDMI with Audio Return Channel and will be compatible with your CT260h soundbar. If you don't have sound, then you need to replace your HDMI cable with a ver1.4 HDMI cable so that ARC is supported in the cable design. If your TV does not provide ARC, then you will need to connect the audio using the digital optical connection which is a fiber optic cable of the TOSLINK variety. This cable should have been included with your soundbar packing.

Also be aware that if you buy a HDMI1.4 with Redmere technology to save on the size of the cable, it has a direction for the signal flow which must be adhered to, otherwise the cable will not pass either audio nor video.

I hope that answers your question.

How do I hook up a Yamaha RX-V377 receiver to a Samsung HW-H450 soundbar?


Not sure why you would want to set things up this way, but you have to set the audio output in the receiver hdmi setup menu to tv. This will allow the receiver to pass audio info out of the hdmi jack. By default, this is turned off.

I have a Philips soundbar that I have hooked up to my flat screen tv using audio (red,white) cables directly from soundbar to tv and there is no sound coming out.


Be sure you are hooking up the Audio Output from the TV or satellite to the soundbar.

From the satellite box both Audio Output and Video Output go to the TV, and then Audio Output from the TV goes to the soundbar.
Or
From the satellite box Video Output goes to the TV and Audio Output goes to the soundbar.

I have a Sony bluray surround sound and lg smart tv, I can't play my Apple TV sound through my hts, all my connections are hdmi and both systems have arc, please help?


Is your Apple TV connected to the Sony or directly to your TV? If directly connected to the Sony HTS ARC shouldn't be needed and you should have audio. If that's the case check the Apple TV settings to be sure it isn't set for s/pdif output. If connected to the TV then the TV should be able to put a s/pdif signal on the HDMI ARC pin but perhaps there's no way to assign it to the HDMI input coming from the HTS? It may be going to the ARC pin on the Apple TV HDMI input which won't give you any sound. Normally ARC is intended to put the s/pdif signal from the TV's internal tuner on the HDMI cable from the HTS so the HTS can play TV sound without having to tun a separate Toslink cable from the TV s/pdif output to the HTS. One other thing: Early HDMI cables do not include the ARC wire so be sure you have ARC capable cables. Look in your TV documentation to see if there is a way to assign the ARC output to a different incoming HDMI input if the Apple TV is connected directly to the TV. If not you may need to resort to a Toslink optical cable from your TV to an optical input on your HTS. Or actually running that cable from Apple TV to the HTS would be better since it's possible it could carry surround sound. Most TV's optical outputs are limited to the 2 channel sound the TV can accept.

Lg soundbar nb2020a setup


If you are currently using your sound system shown for your television sound then you need to use that with you sound bar plugged into it. You can hook it directly to your TV if you have an audio out but your tv has to produce enough output to run the sound bar. If your tv does have an audio out then there is a good chance you need to make those jacks active in the sound set up menu for external speakers. Some sound bars are powered and will require being plugged in as well.

Have surround sound only when play dvd..


if you have a sat/cable box it may have audio outputs that you can connect to the input of the surround unit or if your tv has an audio uotput it can be connected to the surround unit. The audio outs of the tv may or may not adjust with the tv volume. This will not produce a true surround signal because th tv does not output a true surround signal. But yo can adjust the surround unit to get a nice sound.

Getting Surround to work


The easiest way is to hook up your DVD/VCR combo directly to the back of your Sharp LCD TV, then run a component audio output from the TV to the audio input in the back of the receiver. Make sure you hook up your front, center and rear speakers correctly to the receiver, then go through with the speaker calibration steps - per manual, then it should work with no problem. Good luck!
