I wish I could take credit for this one, but I found something that may be helpful to you from Logitech's technical support forum:

The adding of an iPod dock is frequent question. The quickest & easiest solution is to just add a Digital Music Server with Manufacturer: Apple and Model: iPod to you account. The reason behind this is just to let the Harmony Software know you have an iPod & wish to create an activity to use it.

Once the iPod is in your account you can create a 'Listen to Digital Music' activity. It will ask you which device you want for volume, so just choose the A/V with the dock & the DMPort as the input.

After the activity is been created, you can go back and says 'Yes, but you wish to add more control'. This is where you would add the TV as a additional device in the activity & tell it to go to AV1. Once that is done, the Harmony will turn on the TV & set it to AV1, and turn on the AV & set it to DMPort.

You can also 'Customize Buttons' for the activity in case there are any volume & control buttons you wish to specify yourself instead of using the Apple iPod.

I cant play music from my laptop to my sony dav tz130


Usually the only direct audio output from a laptop is through the stereo mini-jack for headphones. This would employ a standard sterteo cable to the audio input jacks on the rear panel of your Sony, but if those inputs on the Sony are already in use then you can't use that option. However, you might look at external USB sound cards which plug into a USB port on the laptop. These external sound devices may have a USB output to go to your TV as well.

Ipod dock plugged it, switch to DMPORT no sound from speakers


I had the same problem. I tried everything and finally following two fixed the problem:

Dock insert has to be put before inserting Ipod in the dock. Dock insert usually comes with iPod when you buy it....After inserting the doc I was able to hear the sound but it was very faint. Then I updated the ipod's firmware. My Ipod classic was two years old. I updated the firmware by connecting it to the PC and opening itunes. Clicked on 'ipod' link and clicked to update button.

After the update, this ipod started working with my home theater system's DMPort.

HTH.

Sony Model DAV ? SB 500W Home Theatre System


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.

Let me know the results to help you more.
