Re: surround sound

You need a cable from your audio outlet to the home theatre receiver. Veira link is just for the picture. Only one way transmission. Optical cable or the 2 wires. Both options are available.

How do i set my home theatre as the default speakers on my viera led/lcd tv. When i turn off the tv and my JBL SB350 soundbar it resumes to tv speakers when i turn it on again?

Page 104 of the manual. It's through the Viera link settings. I have a similar TV. It's a little convoluted.

Through Viera link you set sound selection to Home Cinema and it mutes your TV speakers when your external speakers are on. I use that now now with a similar sound box (Zvox). It works fine. That doesn't work with the playbar...

enable hotel mode by pressing, at the same time, the down volume button on the side of your tv and the 'tv' button on the remote 3 times. A menu will pop up where you can set max volume to 0.

E320VP LED HDTV just purchased. How to I hook up to a home theater system if it has no optical input jack? Thanks.

You should be looking for an optical output on the TV and an input on the home theater. if you mean the home theater has no optical input then you will have to resort to using RCA cables, they wont provide surround sound but most TV channels wont use surround anyway. They are the red and white sockets on the TV. If you need further help please respond with the brand and model of home theater system

How do i get my tv sound to play using the speakers from my hb405su home cinema instead of using my tv speakers

I assume you have an amp with the speakers. You will need cables connected from tv to surround amp , connect amp output to tv audio input and make sure you select amp for tv feed . then just turn off tv volume so the surround sound takes over.

just plug your satellite and dvd player in to your tv. and simply take an extra set of red, white, yellow wires and us use the red and white wires to connect fron your tv output to your surround sound system's input. now you should have surround sound for everything included local tv stations from your tv antenna

Proscan tv surround sound hook up

This depends on whether you have digital cable box or not. If you have a Digi Cable Box look for the red/white RCA output and connect this via RCA cable to the Red/White Audio input on your surround.

If just Basic Cable look for a red/white audio output on the back of your televison. connect this to the Red/white in on your surround. Could be called tv in or auxillary.

Optical output on tv through dvd home cinema out of sync

I just had the same problem. I returned it to currys and got an exchange because I thought there was somethink wrong with the surround sound itself. I have just tried , and left for ages as it goes out of sync gradually as you said ,the red/white cables (rca , i think it's called)and it works perfectely. You can find the wire for quite cheap just type it in google.
