Question about Sony HT-CT100 Theater System
Here's my setup. I purposely purchased all Sony components to make everything sync with ease (that didn't work too well).
TV: KDL-32L4 Receiver: STR-DG720 Speakers: HT-CT100 DVD: sony...no issues with this
First off, I realize now that the receiver and the soundbar are redundant. I should still be able to make this configuration work.
If I hook up DVD via HDMI to the receiver, with Optical out to the receiver and then RCA to the Soundbar, I only get the FM radio, but I cannot adjust volume nor soundfields using receiver (this is what I want)
If I hook up HDMI dvd to receiver, output HDMI from receiver to Soundbar, then soundbar HDMI back to TV, I can get DVD to play, but volume and soundfields still from soundbar and not receiver.
I have hosed around with this darn configuration for about two weeks, and I cannot get everything working. I basically want the soundbar to just act like a speaker, nothing more....any ideas?
It's not going to do whayt you want. On the premise that you can't run a dedicated receiver to a dedicated receiver. One processor is not going to override another. The soundbar is a "self contained" closed system. Much like Bose products. I understand what you are looking for, it just can't be done with this product. Options: replace the sony soundbar with a passive polk soundbar or similar and keep the AV receiver or: Return the AV receiver and use the nice, but limited sony amplified soundbar. Hope this helps
