Question about Home Theater Systems
Thank you in advance for any insight. I have recently purchased a samsung HP-T5054 plasma tv as well as Samsung's DVD home theater HT-x50. I have connected them via HDMI. However, i can get sound only from DVD or tuner. When i attempt to get sound from tv programs playing i am unable to. Please let me know what i am missing...... Thanx! sound from dvd and fm reciver on theater system but none when just running tv have directv
In order to run sound out of the reciever, you must wire your reciever via optical cable or RCAs to your Cable/SAT reciever. In other words, think of it this way.
Samsung HTS ---> HDMI CABLE ---> HDTV HDMI #2
Cable/SAT Reciever --> HDMI Cable ---> HDTV HDMI #1
Samsung HTS ---> OPTICAL CABLE ---> Cable/SAT Reciever
Samsung HTS ---> RCA (Two for Stereo) --> Cable/SAT Reciever
You want your HTS connected directly to your TV in order to prevent piracy software restrictions limiting or hassling your viewing of different media. Without connecting either RCAs or a TOSLINK (Optical Cable) to your Cable/SAT Reciever from your Samsung unit, you won't be able to hear it's audio output. HDMI Takes care of Audio/Video together, unfortunately the Samsung unit limits you to a single HDMI Output and no inputs for your other units to plug into.
With a TOSLINK, press the AUX button on your Samsung remote to Digital Input. When using RCA cables, set it to AUX 1 or AUX 2. You must lower your TV volume and use your Samsung remote to increase the volume of your Surround system.
Hope this helps!

Run a regular RCA type audio cable from your TV audio out to your Home Theatre audio in. That is what I have done recently with my Samsung LCD and Home Theater. You then have to put your Home Theater on Aux 1 or Aux 2 to get the sound from TV. Ensure your TV's volume is off.
