Question about Televison & Video
Our Pioneer Plasma TV model pdp-435PU came with a receiver, a dvd player, and a surround sound system that has unusual connections. The audio from the dvd player connects directly to the subwoofer, and connections run from the subwoofer to the speakers. We bought a new HD-DVD player that doesn't have the kind of cable that plugs into the subwoofer. We can't get surround sound to work with it. We also can't get surround sound from the cable box. Some HD TV shows now broadcast in surround sound, but the cable box doesn't connect to the subwoofer. We need a receiver that can take fiber-optic audio input from both the HD DVD player and the HDTV cable box, and feed the sound to the speakers. HELP!!

Need to make sure you have the red,white,and yellow rca connection cables ran from the samsung dvd player to the red,white,yellow input on the back of the dvd recorder. Once you do that make sure you put your dvd recorder on line 1 input. If you look closely on the back of your recorder it should say line 1 input. If your recorder isn't on that input you can put the recorder on line 1 input by using dvd recorder remote and pushing the input button. Make sure you don't push the tv input button the dvd recorder remote there should be a seperate input button or a way to toggle the inputs on the recorder. Once you verify all that turn on your tv and go to the input on your tv that you watch the dvd recorder on and you should see what your recording on the tv.

SOURCE: best way to connect new system
After trying several ways, we decided the best picture was to run the blue ray (out) directly to the TV (in) with an HDMI and another HDMI from the sat. box(out) to TV(in), then optical audio from TV (out) to receiver (in). This way you don't have to change channels on the reciever when switching from TV to DVD. Remember that HDMI is one cable that supports audio and video. If you are using all Samsung products and want to use one remote, using the Anynet feature, I think it has to be connected with an HDMI. I'm going to try connecting an HDMI too from the reciever to the TV to see if this feature will work. It does with the Blue Ray.

I went to the HDTV plasma manual. It stated the only way the digital optical audio output would work (from this TV) was to go to the menu, select audio and turn off the TV speakers. Basically, it had nothing to do with the technics receiver.
