Pioneer Plasma TV model pdp-435PU--receiver compatibility

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!!

SOURCE: I have a brand new LG 50 plasma and a Bravia Sony

you may have to set the input value on the bravia for optical on the input from the cable box. sometimes there is more than one way for a particular input to receive an audio signal, you may have rca(red and white), a black or orange rca type for digital, and then the optical. i would suspect you have to tell the bravia how the sound is inputed into the bravia. also , just a thought.... on the cable box there should be a volume control on the front of the box........ make sure the cable box volume is ALL the way up (it is the preamp volume).

7.1 surround sound will not work with a coax connection OR Composite (yellow video with Red and White audio). You either need to use an HDMI cable or the Component connection (Red, Green, and Blue connection along with the Red and White audio or the optical audio connection).

Check that the system cables are properly plugged into the back of the plasma display and the media receiver. You may have knocked them whilst installing the DVD player.
