SOURCE: Set up the Panasonic SC-PT450
Are you sure you're using a source material that is surround sound? Most TV broadcasts are still only stereo.
Also with surround programmes, the rear speakers are only used for the surround effect so will only make sound when the sound source is supposed to be behind you.

I could resolve the issue. First of all, the wire supplied with the wii is not compatible with your TV. This 3 point connector, will end up giving you b/w screen. So you need to buy the 5 pin connector. I bought from Frys for $19.99. The box says "High Performance Component HD A / V Cable" (like this one: http://www.bizrate.com/wii-accessories/oid875654433.html )
In any case, do below
1> find the 5 point input row (vertical) on the back of your TV.
2> Insert the connector, in the sequence of Red pin being the bottom most. If its 5 pin connector, then start from the lowest point on the back of TV. If its 3 pin connector, use the top 3 points, on back of your TV. Red always being the bottom most in sequence.
Once again, buy the 5 pin connector, as inserting these pins on the back of your TV when the TV is already mounted on wall, is the hardest part to do...so why to waste your enerty in doing again and again. I am sure you would not like the black & white screen coming with 3 pin connector.

SOURCE: PS3 will not display on TV
WHEN YOU START YOUR PS 3, KEEP YOUR FINGER ON THE START BUTTON UNTIL YOU EAR A SECOND BEEP ( BETWEEN 5 & 10 SECONDS); THIS WILL RESET AND SELECT THE RIGHT CONNECTION . I HAD TO FIND THIS PROBLEM WHEN WE WERE SWITCHING FROM THE LIVING ROOM TO MY KID'S ROOM.
LET ME KNOW, HAPPY NEW YEAR.

This might somewhat help. Today I went back .. I went HDMI out of the Cable box and DVD player into 2 of the TVs HDMI ins. The digital audio out from each, straight to the receiver and things are working ok. All speakers are working OK. Sound isnt as loud or crisp but unfortunately I found no other solution.

The Sony manual for this receiver is not wrong, it is just a little misleading.
It does in fact use HDMI but ONLY for the HIGH DEFINITION video portion of the signal, as output from the receiver to your television. High Definition Multimedia interface carries both audio and video, however, your receiver is not decoding the high definition AUDIO portion of it and passing it through the HDMI, nor is it passing any form of multichannel audio through HDMI. So you can see why the receiver is no longer available for sale from the Sony website. The HDMI connection on your receiver is redundant unless you are not using a multichannel audio format, in which case you would be using either the TV speakers or connect an additional audio cable from the TV's "audio out" back into the receiver for external speakers.
All that should be done is use the HDMI cable from your blu-ray player connected directly to your TV. That will give you your picture, and possibly a better one since the receiver will no longer be in the signal path.
Then connect either a coaxial or optical cable from the blu ray player to the receiver for your audio. You will then be able to have Dolby Digital and DTS surround formats.
Your service person was wrong.
