    I have a 40" Samsung HDTV, the surround sound works great when in DVD mode but not in Tv mode, only tv speakers operate, i have turned the hdmi control setting on with the remote, i have my hdmi cord connected to the tv from the home theatre unit and hdmi cord from my cable box to the tv.

    Same problem as other posters: Sound is fine for DVD, CD, etc., but no sound for telly. I've checked and re-checked and am certain I have it set up correctly. What am I missing?

    Same thing for me. I've connected my SONY Bravia TV via an HDMI cable to the home theater system. I've got the system's HDMI connection and Audio HDMI both set to ON. The sound for DVDs play thru the home theater speakers beautifully. But when viewing the TV, selecting external speakers gets me no sound at all.

    oh my goodness... i've been searching FOREVER for a solution to this. i
    have the samsung 40 inch LCD and the samsung home theatre and i'm
    having the same problem. you think that they would be compatible.

    i realise you wont get surround sound but i just want to use the L and
    R speakers for TV viewing. i've tried hooking up the red/white RCA
    cable OUT from TV to the AUX IN on the home theatre... still nothing....

    i have regular cable too, no cable box. so the whole "hook it up
    directly from the cable/satellite box" doesn't apply to me either.

    i've been searching online all day and this thread is exactly my problem... but no solutions yet.... ?!?! help! please.

    yes, but what happens when you have regular old cable coming from the wall to the tv. no cable or satellite box.


  • makenziele Feb 10, 2008

    yes but what happens if you have regular old cable going into your tv. not a cable or satellite box?

  • minosh6 Jul 23, 2008

    Same problem but in the beginning I could also hear my tv over the cable box. Now I just hear the dvd player. It's all in one system. And everything is on hd cables, sound is on digital audio from surround sound to cable I believe. Please help. I love the surround sound.

    I have a Orion TV 19' (not sure of its verions). It works fine with a Philips Universal remote. I have a COBY 2-1 channel home theater.When I connect home theater to DVD player I get the surround sound. However I have Comcast cable (NOT a DVR or set top box one ) and the channels doesnt get the same surround sound. I tried connecting the woofer to RCA pugs to TV but still no luck.. let me know if there is any solution!...Thanks for sharing.

Hi Every one.

Had same problem with my HDMI connection on my sony bravia and sony theatre system, resolved by conecting a scart lead from the theatre system to one of the free scart sockets on the back of the TV, leave your HDMI connection in place as the DVD signal comes from this,

hope this helps!

Had the same problem. Discovered that you need to connect your cable/satilite to the Media Center. I had to connect "audio out" on the cable/satilite box to "audio in" on the Media center. (had an extra cable so I didn't have to buy one) now all works good (great sound while watching cable) but can't program the Bose remote to work with the cable. Guess you can't have it all............

If you are playing DVD's check sound versions in the audio settings DVD player menus. Enable 5.1 channel audio whenever you play DVD 5.1 enabled.

UBX Home Theater System

It sounds like a problem with your centre channel or speaker. The sound of Voices and on-screen, actions in the middle of the screen are played through the centre speaker. General sounds such as music in the background, off-screen events, etc. will be played through other speakers on a home theatre system. Check your connectors coming from your DVD player to your sound system. Are you using a single-cabled digital connector or one for every channel? Check your sound settings as well, i.e., Surround, AC3, Music, etc.

I have rca home theater system rtd215 plays dvds fine but no sound when im watching tv programs i have no cable box just the jacks on my tv [52 projection screen phillips] and i tried hooking them into the...

This reson you are not hearing any "TV AUDIO" through your RCA surround system would be due to your tv sound output not being connected to an audio input into your surround system. You can hear DVDs,CDs and radio possibly mp3 if connected, as these are built in to the amplifier which the speakers connect to.
If the tv has a Line out (via phono plugs) and NOT via headphone out, connect it to an audio input on the RCA surround system. If the RCA has no other available inputs, well....there ain't a lot you can do but watch CSI with the sound from the TV and then Star Wars (for example) through the TV and Surround system.

Audio problems with Bose 321 system

Hi, sounds like the centre front speaker is disconnected. Check the wiring on that, if all is good there then a fault most likely with the amp. To make sure try connecting a different speaker to the centre channel just for test purpose to eliminate a speaker/cable fault. Best of luck

Samsung HT-X50 DVD Audio Problem

I had this same problem and checked all of my cables and wires. Come to find out one of the wires that connected to the central audio speaker (the one that the audio track comes from) was unplugged. I plugged it in and that fixed it! My audio track is back! So make sure that all of the speaker cables are properly connected! That might be the source of your troubles!

Sony Bravia Dav-HDX279W and comcast HDTV Cable box connection.

Like above, use an optical connection (need fiber optic cable) or a coaxial connection (single RCA cable). HDMI might also work, but I personally haven't checked. Connect the audio outs from the cable box to the audio ins on the home theater. The TV will only need a video connection from the cable box, as well as one from the home theater (for DVDs, onscreen menus).

This discussion can help you set up the universal remote.

Panasonic HDMI surround system problem

The HDMI cable connection on your system is a video out to your TV.
To get audio from the TV so you can hear it through the system, you need to add a cable from the audio out of your TV to the "aux" input on the panasonic system.
This is most likely a red and white connection which will give you stereo, or pro-logic surround from the home theater system.

If TV has AUDIO OUT and you hook up AUDIO OUT from TV to AUDIO IN on your system, it should play.
