SAMSUNG LE40R88BDX 40" LCD TV with DVD home Cinema system

I have just set up my new tv system with surround sound but I am unable to get surround sound while watching sky tv. I have a hdmi lead from the home surround system and it works fine whilst watching dvds. I have the scart from sky to tv and audio leads from surround sound to tv. I am unsure if the leads are right or I should have another lead in use. When I am watching sky tv and then put the home surround on the sound stops completely. Any help will do it's been a long time since we set up new tv.

I am unable to connect my sky+ HD box, surround system and LCD tv together.I was only sold a scart cable and HDMI cable with the surround but am sure I need an audio cable or optical cable with it! please...

you need the fibre optical cable, that connects from your dvd to your tv and then you need to set the output on your dvd to digi in, that can be done by pressing aux on cinema system remote or function on the system it self.
i hope this does fix your problem, if it does please rate.

I cant get my samsung home cinema system to play through my t.v

I bought the optical audio cable ($15 WalMart) and use the Digital In on the DVD player to play the sound through the surround system and turned the TV speakers off. Works great! The optial audio has square ends and looks transparent with just one round shaped cable that goes from the TV to the back of the DVD player.

Surround sound ok whilst playing dvd but not working for tv

On your Sagem TV you should have two RCA ouputs (red and white connection usually marked ouput) ) Connect these to the input on the surround system using the interlink cable.

You should then be able to hear the sound from the TV by changing the SOURCE on the home cinema remote.

Better still if you have a digital out on your TV use that instead.

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?

Set up help!!

Firstly connect your home theatre outpu HDMI to HDMI input1 on the TV. Then connect the PS£ HDMI to the other HDMI input on the TV. Now connected the optical cable from the PS3 to the optical input of the home cinema system. Your should now have surround sound from the PS3 and DVD.
