This is a common problem because it is the same brand controll the only way i found to get round this is cover up one of the sensors on either the telly or the suround i have the same prob with my v+box and my dvd box i found if you cover the one sensor you can use the controll on the other with no problem this is a pain as you have to keep covering the sensor up this might not work on yours but this is the only way i can get round it on some controlls their is a safe mode witch stops other controlls affecting it but you have to switch this on and off to change anything witch is a pain sorry i couldnt help any more ...............

I have a new Samsung HD TV with optical out. The LX3000D has also a optical out. How do i get the dolby surround out of mine television? or how can i get the sound of the tv out of the LX3000D?

The digital connectors on this model are outputs only so you won't get surround sound on anything that is transmitted FROM your TV. Don't really understand the point of a digital OUT port on the back of a surround sound system as you're more likely to want stuff going IN.

No sound from TV only when playing DVD

Check carefully the RCA conections or others.Sometimes this conections break inwards end cause this problems.Check also the lead and the Set up from surround sound.Verify if the TV has settings for this kind of operation. A strong hug !!!

Sony surround sound hookup

In short, the answer is: Hook up all three to each other. I have a Samsung DLP HDTV, and I was trying to hook up a Sony DAV-HDX500 home-theater system and a Comcast HD set-top box, but I found that the Sony user guide is helpful only for setting up the speakers. Most of what it had to say about HDMI and getting the TV sound or cable sound to go through the speaker system was wrong (or, at least, it didn't work for me). So, here's what I did. I connected Component video cables (Y/Pb/Pr out) from the Cable box to the TV (Y/Pb/Pr in), audio cables from the Cable box (audio out) to the Sony system ("SAT/Cable" audio in), and an HDMI cable from the Sony system (HDMI out) to the TV (HDMI in). This allows me to 1) watch DVDs with surround sound through the TV's HDMI source (when the "DVD" format is selected on the Sony system), 2) watch cable with surround sound through the TV's Component source (when the "SAT/Cable" format is selected on the Sony system), and 3) watch cable WITHOUT the surround sound, as I did before I ever had the Sony system. One item of note: When watching a non-HD channel with the surrond sound on, the audio is slightly out of synch with the video; thankfully, there's no such problem on HD channels. Anyway, I hope this helps. It drove me crazy for two days straight!
