    Yes I have the sane problem Surround sound is okay on DVD but on TV the sound does not go through the home theatre system and I have to go back to TV to get sound. So far I have spent 2 days reading the book and trying but no luck.

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.

Have today bought Ferguson FHT1000 5.1 Channel DVD home cinema system can i get surround sound to work on tv or will it only work on dvd

it will work with your tv providing your tv has the correct output and you have the right cables. the programme must also be broadcast in surround, most programmes are only stereo. if you are running sky or sky hd this will be different so repost.

No sound through the Panasonic cinema surround sound on TV

Had a similar problem mate. I solved it by connecting the tv to the PT460 system with a scart lead. You then have to have the AV channel selected on the PT460 system to listen to the tv. You will always have to have the AV channel on the PT460 selected to listen to any sound transmitted through the tv - be it playstation/xbox or any other device that you may connect in the future with HDMI leads or otherwise. Hope this helps

Cant get my viera linked panasonic to play through surround sound

I had the same problem, so i contacted panasonic, I am including the email they sent me.

For connections of audio, so that you can hear all tv audio through the
surround system, connect either an optical audio cable or red & white
analog audio cables from the tv to the home theater. If you are using
optical audio, there is a plug on back of tv labeled for digital audio
output and an input on the surround sound system. If you plan on using
analog red and white, use the PROG OUT red and white output jacks on the
back of the tv to the AUX input on the home theater.

For video connections, to get HD you will need to be using either HDMI or
Component cables. HDMI is the cable that will provided 1080p signal (the
best HD signal), but if the source does not output 1080p, then your tv
will not display 1080p. Most cable boxes output at 1080i or 720p when on
HD stations. This signal still provides great picture quality, but HDMI is
not needed to get these HD signals. You can use component cables for your
cable box and the DVD player output to the tv for video. HDMI might give
you a slightly better picture quality but the signal will be the same.

To make the connection, you will want to connect from the cable box to the
tv (component or hdmi). Also from the home theater system to the tv using
hdmi or the video cables from component (red, blue, & green cables).

We hope this information is helpful to you.

Thank You,
Panasonic Consumer

We have recently just bought a samsung htx250r home cinema. we have a 50 inch samsung plasma, the dvd player sound works using the hdmi cable but the surround sound does not work when we are watching...

Salutations ddog,

Really this is a question of sources. The reason your able to hear surround sound when connected to your DVD player is that is what is providing your audio and video source. When your watching television it would depend on how your getting your broadcasts. If you are either receiving an over-the-air broadcast or cable directly to your set, your television becomes the source. As your television is providing the signal, you would need it to loop back to your receiver to provide that surround sound.

Now for the good news, if you have a cable or satellite box these should have outputs to connect to your receiver to provide the audio source.

Also keep in mind not all broadcasts provide a version of surround sound. Most newer home theater systems will replicate surround sound artificially.

I hope this helps.

You should have a AUDIO menu in which you can simulate true surround sound. This should be in your owners manual. Your DVD is recorded in dolby surround sound that's why on your set it will be reproduced as recorded. I hope Samsung is using a ATSC tuner in that model?
