Have you enabled the external speaker option on your TV and the set isn't on Mute? Check that you have the surround system's receiver set to the correct input. Next, check the audio level. On some sources for the TV, I need the volume at 65. Other sources sound fine with the receiver at 45. Check that the audio matches that being sent by the TV. On my TV, I needed to go to the Menu > Audio Settings to find the option for turning on the external speakers. Then I had to set the speaker system to Multi-Channel for our specific setup. (There were several options, including Dolby. For my specific setup, these other options didn't give the correct sound.) Finally try a different audio cable between the TV and the receiver.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the make and model number of your TV for additional advice. Adding the type of connection (digital audio (optical/coaxial), HDMI, RCA) will help me suggest potential problem areas.

Can't get surround sound sound through tv mode, have sound only when cable box mode is on. I've tried hooking optical cable straight from receiver to tv and I've also tried AV jacks. Not sure.


The audio signal that your tv is producing is a stereo signal only - not surround. You should be able to manually put your receiver into a surround mode when using the tv input and get surround sound that way.

We have surround sound for tv - currently the receiver does not work on the tv sound however, it does work for the tuner what do I do?


Look at some manuals for the specific models you possess. Maybe consider drawing the TV-related audio from its root source, like the Cable Box, which is indeed a high-fidelity audio device as well as a TV tuner.

The only way you can do this is by connecting the Cable Set Top box HDMI directly to the TV HDMI input and switching the TXSR508 to Apple TV. And if you want to hear the Cable sound through the TXSR, connect analogue audio out of the TV to one of the analogue inputs of the TXSR ( Aux or Video In ). You may not get the Cable TV's Dolby 5.1 sound but you will get stereo sound which on using the TXSR's dsp setting ( ProLogic II ) can be made into 5.1.

I have hooked up my dish, yamaha receiver, CD player, blueray player and have surround sound for everything but the TV, Help!


Usually, unless the TV show is being broadcast itself in surround sound, the surround decoder in the receiver will default to front only sound on TV shows. When a TV show says that it is in surround sound, the receiver will decode it. I think the Law and Order series in broadcast in surround.
Hope this helps,
Best, Mark

The optical audio out from the TV only works for the TV's tuner, probably. Hook-up optical from Cable/SAT and from PS3 boxes to DVD/Receiver.

Maybe I don't quite get what you're trying to do.

Unless you still tune programs off the air from the TV tuner and an antenna - what possible TV program would come into the TV that the DirectTV box wouldn't already provide high quality sound and video for? You should run the audio from the DirectTV box to the receiver.

Can't figure out how to get suround sound on tv with new home entertainmain center we do have suround sound on dvd and tuner conection just not able to conect to our panisonic tv


Look at the TV specification - does it include a surround sound receiver and amplifiers? The tuner may not be 5:1 capable - thus there is no surround on off air broadcasts. If there is then you may need to select the correct menu and turn it on - THIS WILL INVOLVE READING THE MANUAL OR USER GUIDES.
