Re: Sound and picture

Check that you have connected the component video lead to the correct sockets in both the TV and the HTS9800W.

There are two sets of Phono (cinch) connectors, which are grouped together.

Red / Green / Blue - Component connectors - video only

Red / White / Yellow - Stereo audio and composite video connectors - audio and vide

If you have inadvertently connected the red audio connector to the red component input on the TV, it would cause similar symptoms as you describe.

How to get sound through speakers with tv and not just dvds

Just wire your TV audio out to one of the receivers (DVD player) audio in and select AUX when you want the TV sound to play through the surround sound. You also might want to turn the volume down or off on your TV to get the full surround sound feeling, but that's your call.

When playing DVD no sound but VCD sound OK.

dvd are up to 6 times the density of a cd there making the laser eye read much closer rings on the disks. so in other words its having a hard time reading dvd. the only thing you can do is take a cotton swap dipped in alcohol and open the tray look with a flashlight for a small optical eye in exact center of dvd player and rub lightly on it to remove dust build up or spray some canned air into the dvd youll hit it. try it again and if no sound again the computer cant keep up with the dvd or vise versa.

Connecting TV

If your tv has line out jacks, run cables to the "play" jacks in the back of the 300. If your running satelite, run the sound cables to the player instead of the tv. If your running a vcr player seperate, you can run those sound cable to the back ot the 300. The video cable would go straight to the tv.

Hope this helps.
