SOURCE: Only one surround back speaker works

It sounds to me like one of your speakers may be mis-wired. Try reversing the speaker wire (don't switch right-for left, but switch negative for positive) and see if that changes anything.

SOURCE: Onkyo HT-SR800 the surround speakers are not blasting

I had the same problem and fixed it by manually setting the surround speakers changing the Level Cal to +12dB. You will immediately notice a significant increase in volume and may need to back down on the dB's. What a diffence it makes!

SOURCE: Need help setting up samsung

Look in the manual...

The TV >>receives<< Video and Audio from the Samsung. Page 19.

The unidentified TV with its unknown audio capabilites has a manual somewhere, too.

How many TV's are actual audio sources?

If the TV is actually a root source of programming (say, through its own antenna) you can run cables from it to the Samsung as you would any other audio source. If the audio really comes fro ma Cable Box THAT is where the best TV-related audio will come from.

User manual

You get surround sound only if you hook up your Optical out from your TV to the Optical IN on the HT-H4500 using an optical audio cable. You may have to buy such a cable if one was not included with the TV or the home theater.

No surrond sound

TV's are not sources of multichannel audio. The best you'll get is stereo analog. Get the best TV-related audio from the same source the TV gets it - in this case the Cable Box.

Surround sound does not come through my tv. Just

If your DVD player is a home theater system then the sound would come through the HT system, not the TV. On your TV you should have an 'AUDIO OUT' jack, plug that into your HT system where it has the 'AUDIO IN' or "AUX" AUDIO IN. Then when you are watching TV, just set your HT system to AUX mode or AUDIO mode.
Hope that helps.

Your systemn is designed and built to perform 2.1 sound. If you want 5.1 sound you can do 2 things, connect another pair of speakers to the same speakerterminal as your front speakers, however this produces 5.1 stereo sound and not 5.1 surround sound.
You can buy a new system that has the proper connections.

This set will not have the proper decoding software to produce 5.1 surroundsound. sorry.
