Re: tv surround

It depends on what you currently have as equipment.

You'll have to have something that outputs in digital audio (coaxial or optical). Either your reciever (Cable/Satellite) or the TV. You'll just hook that up to the Surround Sound unit and then just turn on the Surround System when you want surround sound.

You'll have to connect the TV as you would normally with audio cables sicne you'll want stereo sound on the regualr channels.

Surround speaker is not working.

Make sure your receiver is in surround sound mode on the sound fields for that input. Some receivers have independent sound mode settings. example would be hdmi 1 is set to 2 channel stereo while hdmi 2 is set to PL II movie which is a surround sound setting. Hope this helps.

Not all my speakers sound when using the audio in plug, all of them only work when using the mic caliber and when playing a movie.

Most inputs are not true 5.1 surround; with the exception of the mic and many movies. You will not have all of them working from, say an ipod or TV unless you choose a sound mode that mimics 5.1 or grater from a 2.1 source. These are modes like Pro Logic (1&2) and often "entertainment mode" or something simmilar that plays the sound out of all 6 channels.

VIZIO VHT510. soundbar and subwoofer work. No sound from satellite speakers

Do you have them connected to the sub? Those satellite speakers pick up the fainter sounds and work best in movies with 5.1 surround sound. Make sure they are behind the primary listening position. And try them with a 5.1 surround movie. If all speakers are up front switch to front listen mode. Good luck.

Hello any cable or satelite tv show is now more comonly in high definition sound and video! and the techs are wrong because their are plenty of movies on tv including news channels that broadcast in surround sound ,but in order to get that surround sound you must either have a connection from the tv,s audio out or you can also out put the sound from the cable or satelite box out to your bose system as as the scritching sound where does it only happen when in surround mode or stereo mode ? if you play a dvd or cd does it still make noise? and can you be more specific on your terminology SCRITCHING not really shure what you mean by that word! thank you glenn mayer

I have no surround sound when watching normal T.V

Hi there, in order to listen to t.v you need to purchase an optical cable and plug this in the optical out of the tv to the optical in on the blue ray then select D.IN.1 on the blue ray and press mode on the remote until it says matrix . This will allow you to listen to the t.v through all speakers. hope this helps. Also remember to take the rubber protectors off the ends of the optical cable, a lot of people forget this :)

No sound through tv speakers

Well the problem is that the PS3 only allows output on one channel. So, this is only going to be optical out, or hdmi, or even AV. You only get one option for the output.

Now, if your TV has the capability.. Run the sound through the HDMI to the TV and then let the TV output the digital sound to the surround system. This will give you the option of turning off the surround and re-enabling the TV's stereo speakers.

I hope this gives you an idea of what the problem is. If I were you, I'd just do as I said. This is exactly how I have mine setup. I have a 600w sub on the surround, so late night movies can't be played on it without the neighbors being woke up. So, I simply disable the TV's output and use it's speakers. :)

are you trying to use the surround sound for movies or music ? , ive got the dvd version of this system (sc-dv290) and ive noticed the surround sound tends not to perform well with music , but sounds great with movies. i think its because the movies have dolby digital and music does not. The dolby pro logic in my opinion doesnt really make that much of a difference in sound unless the sound is cranked up past 44db on the amplifier. the only cables you need are the ones that are attached to the surround sound speakers and they cannot be removed so it cant be the wiring . I reckon you have a 1 - faulty system 2 - listening to music 3 - maybe not pressing the pro logic button on the sound processor. Hope this helps
