How do get sound surround interface between my HD SET TOP BOX and my Sony DAV-S300. I have seen previous responses and digrams with connection to the Optical in socket on my DAV but my system doesn't have...
The first two links you've probalbly seen before, they show conncections and connectors. I looked at pictures of your system and it would appear that the only input for video and audio is RCA. I think it has s-video for video only(s-video slightly better). The third link is the only way I can see to get what you are asking. It is an HDMI to RCA adaptor. You would use an HDMI cable out from your set top box to the adaptor then, RCA cables to your DAV-S300. It's the only way I can see. Hope this helps.

A stereo 2 phono lead input from a sky box will have dolby pro logic surround info on it (when its a surround programme of course)

The Sony should then process this and give sound on the centre and rears too.

The DAVS300 does'nt have an optic/coax digital input so you can't have dolby digital from an external source- only from its own DVD player

If your PVR has an Optical Output then you will be able to hook that to your SONY DAV-S300. If it does not you will just be able to use the standard analog stereo connections. I included a picture of the Optical port on your SONY DAV-S300.

How do i connect to sky hd and sony kdl 40w 4710 and dav-is10 i have hdmi from skyhd to tv and hdmi from home cinema to tv what else is required as i cant get surround sound from tv

you need a Optical audio cable, run this from the back of your Sky HD box to the Surround sound. Not all Broadcast are transmitted in DD so press your i button on the sky remote and you will see this on the yellow bar above the program information if it is..

Might be worth running a set of White and Red audio cable from the HD box to the Surround sound as well that way you can just mute your telly and have the lot coming through the surround sound system.

Hope this clears things up for you

The speach during a movie sounds muffled

Please download Instruction Manual of DAV-DZ260 from Sony Support and go to page 25 and select appropriate sound option.
The disc in player doesn't match with current sound selection thats why you hear muffled sound.
Thank you.

Is it under warranty?
Have you checked the manual for troubleshooting hints?
Can you bring in another device to try ( is there an AUX setting/plug in back)?

Connection/sound issues!

the best thing to do is if ur lcd has a phono in/out is to connect ur theatre system through phono straight to the tv as then everything that comes up on the tv comes throught the theatre system

Sony surround sound hookup

In short, the answer is: Hook up all three to each other. I have a Samsung DLP HDTV, and I was trying to hook up a Sony DAV-HDX500 home-theater system and a Comcast HD set-top box, but I found that the Sony user guide is helpful only for setting up the speakers. Most of what it had to say about HDMI and getting the TV sound or cable sound to go through the speaker system was wrong (or, at least, it didn't work for me). So, here's what I did. I connected Component video cables (Y/Pb/Pr out) from the Cable box to the TV (Y/Pb/Pr in), audio cables from the Cable box (audio out) to the Sony system ("SAT/Cable" audio in), and an HDMI cable from the Sony system (HDMI out) to the TV (HDMI in). This allows me to 1) watch DVDs with surround sound through the TV's HDMI source (when the "DVD" format is selected on the Sony system), 2) watch cable with surround sound through the TV's Component source (when the "SAT/Cable" format is selected on the Sony system), and 3) watch cable WITHOUT the surround sound, as I did before I ever had the Sony system. One item of note: When watching a non-HD channel with the surrond sound on, the audio is slightly out of synch with the video; thankfully, there's no such problem on HD channels. Anyway, I hope this helps. It drove me crazy for two days straight!
