Bought a LG Blu ray DVD Home theater system last weekend and set up with LG lcd tv and has been working fine till today. We had the radio on and I turned the TV on and the two rear speakers do not work...

In a surround sound system, the correct way to listen to music is in stereo mode which will play out of your left and right channels and your subwoofer. When viewing a movie with surround sound, then you should use your rear speakers. The key element to remember is that rear speakers are only intended to play your sound effects, and will not play full range audio. Thats what your fronts and center are for. If you simply want to override this, than you will need to select the direct sound field on your receiver and than it will send full range audio to all speakers connected. Most likely, its not going to sound that good. If you dont know what each sound field does, here is a list and function of the most commonly used ones.
Stereo-Front Left and Right speakers including subwoofer
Dolby Digital or PLII Movie-these are the bost options for your surround sound
Direct-All speakers connected get full range signal
Good Luck

The broadcaster of the TV station has to tell you they are transmitting surround sound - sometimes they are just transmitting stereo. Also, the media as in CD's and DVD movies must have surround sound embedded or recorded on it to allow surround sound.

How can i directly connect a LG H30 TV, or a PS3 or a Wii to a Regent HT391 sound system? Is it possible to? So far the only 'surround sound' I can achieve is by connecting my tv thru the cable box...

According to the various vendors that carry this model, the unit has multiple inputs to accommodate gaming systems, dvd, tv, etc.

Look on the back of your system and see if there are inputs labeled as Game, DVD, TV, etc. You should be able to connect each component, and use the remote to switch between the multiple sources.

Good luck.

it will work with your tv providing your tv has the correct output and you have the right cables. the programme must also be broadcast in surround, most programmes are only stereo. if you are running sky or sky hd this will be different so repost.

How can i get the surround sound to work.

You need to get an HDMI cable going from your Cable Box to the Surround Sound system. If you are low on HDMI ports, you can RGB cables for Video.

Your quote: " I have a HDMI cable plugged into the TV and the Cable box." move that cable to Surround Sound and Cable Box, and use RGB cable or HDMI to go from Cable box to TV!

If your Surround Sound has no HDMI, use a Fibre Optic to go Cable to Surround. It will work Great!

Good Luck!

Need to know how to make the surround sound work through regular T.V. with durabrand surround HT-3915

Your regular TV set must be able to process the surround encoding through its output to where the Durabrand is taking the sound from.

Also, if you are using the TV set on a converter, Cable Box, or Sat receiver, and you are not taking the output from the component output there will be no surround from the source.

Surround sound is critical to how it is processed and applied.

Friend gave me a jbl surround system to go with my 52" sony hd tv. It has four speakers. three sat 20 and one bass 20. going to a rca stva 3970 receiver. didn't have instructions to go with it.

You need two more speakers to get surround sound,ie> two front one center and two for surround,then you need a home cinema amp to run the speakers and decode the sound from your tv,sky,dvd etc,and the sub gives you your bass.

Hope this helps.

Could be that your TV doesn't output a 5.1 signal? Do you have a HD sky box? If so, take the audio out from then into your surround system.
