Samsung HT-X40 System Problem

I have recently connected my home theatre to my Samsung 40' LCD via an optical cable so that I can use the surround sound while watching TV. However after about 10 to 15 mins I get a delay between the sound and the picture. The sound lags behind the picture on screen. This does not happen while I'm watching DVD on the system but I'd say that because I have a HDMI connection. Does anyone know why I get this delay??? Iv connected my samsung LE40R8 LCD tv to my samsung HT-X30 cinema system through toslink optical cable, at first the sound is good but after about 5 mins the sound runs out of sync with the picture seems to be a second behind!

I received an e-mail from Samsung which reads
"What you have described in your e-mail was an issue that was logged and has been investigated we have released a firmware update to resolve the issue"
"In order for the firmware to be updated on the unit please call our product support team on 0870 726 7864 for assistance"

While in stop mode, go to the menu and select Sound Setting, then go to delay setting. You can fix this problem by choosing the right delay time.

I want to buy a home theatre that can support surround sound. For this, I will require that HT should consume digital input. What is the starting range of these kind of HT?

This is a Search Engine question. Look around the web. ALL HT's support surround sound. THAT's what makes them HT's.

For example, "home theater surround sound digital input prices" on Google or Amazon brings up plenty to ponder.

Buyer beware. You will get no more than what you pay for. Low-balling the price will come back to bite you. Do some research before you buy, and NEVER buy anything from someone selling it out the back of their van.

I have a Sony Home theatre 5 disc changer, DAVHDX975WF and a BDPS560 Blue-ray player connected to a 46" LCD TV KDL46XBR10. The HT has been the speakers for the TV since day one. The Bravia Sync...

it is most likely bc of a firmware update. i have heard of this problem while working at best buy. rarely do i see the bravia link actually fail. i would shut both off for a little while and connect them without the link then connect the link. kinda like a reboot of the whole system . hope this helps!

Prima HT 8104 home theatre

in the 3D processing turn on the Pro Logic and the for the mode as well set it to pro logic.
it simulates 5.1 surround.

this is what I did and it's decent. Other way would be to run the system through a amp/receiver that supports 5.1 surround.

Can i connect JVC SXXSW6000 home theatre to my pc...if so how?

You need a receiver. A surround sound receiver is a 5-channel amplifier with a line-level subwoofer out. These are available at electronics stores. Receivers usually have digital inputs like optical and coaxial that you can use with the S/PDIF output of your PC.

Sound issues Samsung series 6

The speakers that come with built into the units are very limited at best. Better than the old 4" speaker that came in TV sets from the old days, but not by much. Ask if you are not expecting more out of the output than is reasonable.
I would offer that the true design intent is to hook the HDTV into a home surround system, a home system is optimized for and designed for your listening pleasure. I'm guessing that your HDTV is an LCD with a sound bar at the bottom, if so it is for general use and not intended for critical listening.
I have a 61" Series 7 DLP and even with larger built in speakers, the difference is night and day between my surround sound system and the HDTV stand output.

Samsung Series 6 TV - cannot get TV to go through Home cinema speakes

Ok, the Audio can only be transfered to the HT if it is connected via something other than the HDMI, (the HDMI is just 1 way accept for the Anynet function (which is great with the 6 series. I have the LE52-A656))

The audio can be transfered via component cables but you will get the best out of your system using an optical cable. The main reason for optical is it ability to transfer 5.1. Only problem is the Samsung does not output 5.1!! bugger!! one you have connected it via the optical too. just set the HT to D-IN and you should be goo to go! :) There maybe something i have missed but Im at work at the mo but let me know how you get on :)

Connet to pc

Well, I would have to know what connectors your sound card and home theatre system have. If you dont have a sound card, get a headphone/3.5mm trs plug to stereo rca plug adapter usually available at your local radio shack or walmart, and connect to the red/white rca plugs on your reciever. If they have other connectors(your sound card/ home theatre system) you might try coaxial digital audio-S/PDIF or optical S/PDIF.
