Home theater sound

I have a hitachi 42 dh 69 plasma that I can't get hooked up to a new dvd/surround system. I can get the video feed on a dvd to the TV, but when I use the audio out jacka to HIFI I cannot get audio to play through the system. Seem like a no brainer

Re: Home theater sound

Most plasmas have set of RCA jacks beside or near each video input, be it a yellow composite jack, component (RGB) or VGA (15 pin monitor cable) there should be a red &white set of jacks beside each input. There should be a r&w set marked audio out.thats what you want goin' to the Hi-Fi a/v input. All this is on the assumption that the plasma has no speakers of it's own. if it does, you may need to go to set up menu and check audiosettings on the tv.Your best bet is to go HDVI between the DVD/Sound if you have the ability on both units. Better vid and audio that way.

Hook up new blueray thru old home theater system

Yes you can. If you have more than 1 HDMI sources and your old system only has 1 HDMI in, you may want to invest in an HDMI switch. They are inexpensive (under $20 on Amazon) and let you choose 4 HDMI sources to feed your system. The audio is embedded in HDMI and you may have to select the choices (surround versus stereo) when you play the disc.

Can't get the surround sound to play the rear speakers and small front speaker

Sounds like it's just in 2 channel stereo mode, only 2 speakers working out of 5 and a sub, look for a selector switch for switching to 5.1 surround, as far as the no video problem try replacing the cable for the video connection.

Hooking up the RT 2600

connect all the devices into the receiver inputs then there should be 1 set of outputs to the tv. This is to play everything using surround sound as all the video and audio is going through your recevier... if you want to do HD and have surround sound you will need a new receiver as this one has no hdmi inputs or outputs.
