Hooking up TV Guardian with Samsung HT-SK5

I'm having problems hooking up TV guardian to my Samsung HT-SK5.

The thing is, the Samsung only has audio inputs and no true audio outputs.

I can get the filtered words to display the captions on the TV but the sound is not muted.

I'm wondering if I need a receiver to connect the DVD player through to get the audio filtered.

Connected samsung ht x720 (home cinema system 2.1) to v+ box.Cant get picture when playing a DVD.Can hear the sound tough.Thanks

You probably need to change the incoming input signal on your tv.

In other words, your audio is coming directly out from your dvd player, and going directly to the audio power amp.

Your video does the same thing, except it goes to your tv. Your tv has multiple places for "incoming" signals to hook in to it. Take a look at where you're hooking your video in - the input should be marked ... something like "Component 1" "Component 2" "HDMI 1" "HDMI 2" ... something like that.

On your remove, there will be a button that says, "Input." When you push this, you will see that your TV brings up an input selection window. Pressing the "input" button on your remote should scroll through the ports on the tv. Briefly pause on each input selection to see if it begins receiving a video signal from your DVD player.

Can not get my Samsung TV to recognize the ht system. I am able to get the sound out of the ht system and the video on the tv when i play dvds but the sound will not transfer from the tv to the ht system...

The way mine is hooked up is like this: Ps3, DirecTV box all plugged to my samsung TV and then only thing I have plugged into the Ht box is the hdmi out to TV and an Optical Cable from Tv to HT box. All audio is going to Tv then to HT box and plays all through hometheater box when it is on. Try the optical cable

No sound with ps3, connected to a 7.1 av receiver & projection tv

Hi...the HT-R800 Home Theater system has the HT-R550 receiver which could only carry Video via HDMI. you would need to connect a separate audio cale(Optical Audio Cable) to be able to get audio out of the PS3 to the receiver. Once you have hooked up an Optical Audio Cable you would need to go in the PS3 setup and putin Bitstream and Optical in the Audio Setup menu.

Samsug HT-SK5 fails with 'Protection' on display

Protect mode will kick in whenever a fault is detected.

You get the unit not powering up, and sometimes you hear a clicking noise, that is the protection switch that keeps shutting down the unit.

Causes that can start protect mode are:

Electrostatic harges on internal circuits.
Leave the unit unplugged for power for one hour or so, this will allow discharge.

Bad speaker wiring.
Check speaker wiring, try unplugging and plugging back, or start after removing one speaker at the time.

Internal fault.
Internal fault is the natural cause for protect mode. If all the above did not work, then the problem is a blown component or an internal fault. In this case the unit must be taken apart , tested and repaired by an experienced person.
If the unit is less than one year old, or if you want to get service, call Sony at the phone number listed on the product documentation.

Video inputs

I had the same problem until I switched my player-to-TV connection from S-Video to Composite.  Then it worked just fine.  Now I have player-to-TV as Composite, and Wii-to-player as Composite connected to Aux1.

Hooking up cable through ht-x50

You need an Optical Audio Cable. Hook one end to the HD Cable Box and the other to your Surround Sound System. If you dont have an Optical Cable to your Cable Box, then try using the usual audio cables. But, I have HD and it worked with the Optical Audio Cable.
