Re: DTS compatibility

No problem., Your flat screen has two audio outputs, one red and the other white. Connect these two into your surround system and the system will handle the rest.

We have just bought an Akai 32 inch full hd tv (ak32fled) and are trying to hook it up to our surround sound system. We have hooked it up so that we can watch dvds through the tv, but there doesn't seem...

There should be audio out sockets at its rear side. Refer user manual for details about how to connect it with external audio output devices. If you feel any difficulty, contact the authorized dealer.

Run the audio output from the tv rca audio output, to any input of receiver and hook your speakers to receiver. You cannot hook up speakers to tv cause its a low level audio output. Needs to be amplified.

I recently bought a toshiba 40E210 lcd i just would like to ask if there is an additional audio output aside from the digital optical audio output?

Hi well NO I don't think that this unit has any other audio outputs? or "Monitor" as they are called, simply check the rear of the unit and the manual and see if there is any external outputs or "Monitor" Audio out, if there is it will be via Red & White RCA Jacks, these can be used to output to speakers or surround sound decoder. However this shouldn't be a problem as if you simply want to use this output, just obtain a Optical to standard audio output converter, and then you will be able to use this output in the regular way. And hook up to speakers or surround sound decoders as well. If you son;t have a manual, i suggest it will be a good idea to obtain one, approach the manufacturer or go to the website and look for one all info about the set will be in there.

VUDU has movies in DTS 5.1 but a digital optical cable does not send 5.1 signal to the amplifier

Optical connections will only carry compressed Dolby Digital 5.1, compressed DTS 5.1, and uncompressed PCM 2.0 (stereo).

But your Blu-ray player should have an audio output setting so that master quality soundtracks on Blu-ray (Dolby TrueHD, DTS-MA, PCM 7.1) can be downmixed to DD 5.1 or DTS 5.1.

That way the optical cable will be able to get a usable audio format, regardless of what format of audio you choose from the disc (some Blu-rays do not technically have the older audio formats, they rely on the player to play the backward compatible version that is embedded within the master audio track).

Hooking up new tv to surround sound

I recently purchased a vizio 37" LCD tv, I have tried everything in hooking up my Sony DVD surround system to the TV. However, I found no audio output on this TV. Could you tell me if there is a way to hook the tv directly up to the surround without an output?
Is there something else I need to buy?
