No sound from digital cable thru AVR3200 after adding HDTV - DVD plays fine
I just connected an LG37LB5D HDTV to my home theater (replacing Sony Trinitron) built around an AVR3200. My DVD plays very nicely, but I get picture and no sound from cable TV. I'm connecting the cable box to the TV with HDMI, and the cable box LR audio to the reciever. The DVD player is connected to the TV via s-video, and to the receiver thru LR audio. Any suggestions?

I have a Sony 46" LCD TV. I have a Direct TV HD converter box, a Sony Blu-Ray BDP-S360 Blu-Ray player, and a Pioneer DVD-Audio player connected to my Pioneer Elite Home Theater receiver. I have my Pioneer DVD-A player connected via Fiber-Optic cable. When i play a DVD or a DVD-A on my Pioneer DVD-A player, all of my speakers work fine, but when i play a dvd on my blu-ray player, all the speakers work except my subwoofer. How can I fix this problem?
this might be happening because the audio format for surround is not supported by the channel or affiliate of the channel that you are viewing does this happen on all tv channels or is it on just a few? if all sound while playing a dvd is proper and in working order than there must be an issue with the sound and or format of sound from the tv source. maybe more information would help me decipher this
The problem sounds like it is the dvd player, have you set-up the audio output menu on the dvd players setup menu? Some dvd units default to a 2 channel stereo output, what is required is you need to enter the setuo menu and enable a dolby digital 5.1 output or the DTS/Bitsteam audio output option. Also be sure to use a digital signal cable connection.
Could be a sync calibration issue. Try to divert the TV sound to another input source on the Hometheatre system if possible, if it is a go then maybe the TV audio needs to be recalibrated. Make sure TV audio setup menu option has not changed also.
No they all are compatible with eachother no matter what brand tv,surrround sound. It is all in the hook up & without you stating how you have it hooked up,no way to tell because one siimple connection is all you r missing. You have it most way there if sound is ok on dvd.If you explain how you have it hooked up i can surley help you!!
Please check at rear of TV for Digital Optical IN port as home theater should have optical out port at rear. If you got any optical in port in TV, just connect optical wire between TV and home theater.
2nd option is check Line Out pins at rear of home theater system, if found, hook red-white RCA cable there and put it to same input in TV where you hooked Video (composite or component) cable.
all wrong! look at the back of your tv input panel you will see 2 rca jacks labelled audio out use rca cable (stereo) then connect to your audio receiver input labelled tv or any available input like cd vcr ....etc.let me know.
Don't worry about sending the TV audio to the Panasonic. Just send a digital audio signal from the cable box to the Panasonic.
DVD - Panasonic connected via HDMI
TV - Panasonic connected via HDI
cable connected to cable box and TV. But you will not really be using the cable connection to the TV (TV Tuner) since you will want HD feed from cable box through HDMI input on TV.
You aren't concerned about feeding the TV speakers because your audio will always come from the home theatre.
Note that some components don't feed audio through HDMI, in which case you will need to use optical digital audio.
HDTV is not carried via coaxial cable from tuner, you need HDMI or the 5 RCA cables that are different colors. I forget if they are called component or composite, I think they are called composite, the R and W are sound. If you run the HDMI or composite cables to your TV, there should be a variable out or audio out on the back of the TV that outputs ANY sound coming into the TV, like Wii, DVD, tv, etc. So if you want to listen to tv sound, just pipe the audio out to the receivers available input and turn it up. Cant be used with mag input (turntable) all others are compatible. Did this answer your question? Sat cables are usually kept under 130 ft from the dish, and the dish receiver can output coaxial signal over 400ft on RG-6 cable. HDMI is limited and can get very expensive. Does your sat box have a coaxial digital out (orange RCA) you can use that if your receiver can read it, usually associated with the DVD input or video input, but only for digital encoded programs.
