SOURCE: HDMI Connection to Ooptical Output

Talked with Sharp, it's a issue with hdmi and optical out, best fix for it that I'm currently using is a 3-way toslink splitter, cost a little of nothing and work perfectly, you just turn the dial to the signal you want to play off of. Clicky

Hey Gamer1827,

While I personally can't provide you with any model-specific home theater system recommendations, there are a couple of common ways that you can generally configure your home theater.

Connecting several devices directly to the HTIB system may typically allow you to minimize the number of remote controls necessary, as long as the HTIB system supports the use of a universal remote. Should you not necessarily care if you have to change back-and-forth between two remotes however, you may have a wider variety of possible configurations available.

In order to use only HDMI cable connections to set up your home theater, you most likely would need an HTIB system with three HDMI ports: one for your TV, one for your PS3 and one for your cable box. Each device would require a separate HDMI cable running between it and the receiver. This option (in theory) would allow you to use one universal remote to control each device, assuming that they are all compatible with the same remote.

Another common configuration you might wish to try requires you to connect your cable box and PS3 directly to your TV. By doing so however, you might limit yourself to using an optical digital audio cable to make the connection between your TV and many HTIB systems. In this configuration, the cable box and PS3 would again have their own separate HDMI cables, while the optical digital audio cable would need to be run from the Digital Audio-Out port on the back of your TV to the Digital Audio-In port on the receiver. This option essentially treats the HTIB system as an expansion device, instead of the center of your home theater configuration.

Should you need any additional information or suggestions, remember that you may always speak with a sales representative at your local Best Buy™ store for further assistance.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

How do I connect my flat screen tv to my Phillips MX3900 system


This is an older home theater package and only has component video out for HD and RCA or SPDIF optical out for audio. You'll need to locate the component video input on the back of your flat panel and connect it to the component output of the Phillips unit. Component cables have 3 RCA cable (Red, Blue, Green) for HD. You can use a RED/WHITE RCA cable for audio but if you have a SPDIF Optical cable you should use that for better sound. The TV should have that as an input also. You will need to go into the Menu for the TV and select component video and SPDIF optical if you went that route for audio.

In your DVD player audio setup change the digital output to bitstream. You have not mentioned which DVD player you are using.

Some players it will be given
Digital Out - Off/ On select On
Dolby Digital - Dolby / PCM select Dolby
DTS - On/Off select ON

Bought the A99HR Nikkai DVD player and recently the sound does not work anymore. Picture and everything else is working alright.


I had the same problem when I switched over to a HDMI cable. It's the sound settings. I had to switch my audio setup in the settings menu to PCM for HDMI and also choose only SPDIF / RAW or PCM.

How do you hook up a home theater system without an out put


Hi, on this TV there is a SPDIF port that they say to hook-up to your home theater system. Depending on your amp receiver if it has an spdif port then thats the way to go. if not then you could always run audio cables from your cable/satellite box to your amp receiver, and the same for your dvd player and any other device. Hope i was of some help : )

My ampex 5.1 channel home theater speaker system switches off after approx. 30minutes of play and has an in built FM reciever that doesn't work i.e doesn't get reception


Possible there are DRY SOLDER JOINTS within the main board and so when the set heats up there is a connection loss which makes the set switch off. Remove panel and try to work the set while cooling with a fan , touch to see if any section like power-amps gets hot. If so observe with a magnifier and solder.
Check the external antennae connection to the system, if this seems ok then the RF end/ signal processor is faulty which might need a trace with technical help.

Hooking my flat screen tv to my home theater


Since your output is coaxial (rca) you should be able to find an input for coaxial that will work on your surround the setting on your surround will be either coaxial or digital input,
hope this helps
it would help if you said what kind and model of surround you have
