Depends on how you intend to hook it up otherwise you will get no sound from the speakers if you delete the DVD player from the circuit. The speakers require a power source and this is provided via the DVD player.
You cannot connect those speakers up to an amplifier or an AV Receiver because the speaker connections are not compatible. The connections to the speaker wire where they plug into the DVD player would have to be changed because there needs to be a left and right wiring connection for each speaker.
So if I were you I would not mess with the system and just route everything via the DVD as it is designed to be done.
Could be many things - I know, bad answer. There is no simple answer or fix.
Without more info one can only speculate.
Please determine and answer as many or all of the following so that we can help.
1) What is the make and model number of the Surround sound unit?
2) What is the make and model of the DVD player?
3) How is the DVD player connected to the Surround sound unit?
3a) Is it connected via an HDMI cable?
3b) Does the DVD player have regular stereo connections that you are using (we call these analog audio connectors)?
3c) does the DVD player have digital audio outputs that are connected to the Surround sound receiver?
4) Did the DVD player EVER make sound?
4a) if yes - what changed?
4b) if yes - does this happen with different discs?
Now some general points.
I'll assume that the other sources do work and play sound through all speakers when they are supposed to play sound through all speakers.
Then - I'll assume that without changing anything else you select the DVD player input that used to make sound but doesn't now.
Problem could be the encoding option that you have selected when you play the disc.
Many DVD's and Bluray's have audio options that you can select from the disc's main menu.
Dolby digital is the most common - also known as AC3.
Some discs have another digital audio track called DTS.
Not all surround receivers can decode all formats.
Even if your surround receiver claims to be able to decode AC3 and DTS, they will not if you don't connect the correct cable to the receiver and usually map the input to the correct digital audio connection that you are using OR if your DVD player is not capable of outputting all formats.
There are many different ways to connect the gear and many different ways one can configure correctly or not; all contributing to whether you get sound or not.
So in the above example - by selecting DTS, you do not get any sound - then try another audio track option. Basic stereo usually works (also know as PCM - which is audio like a CD).
OR maybe you never properly configured the audio properties of the DVD player.
Go into the DVD's menu or set up options and see what you find but make sure you know how the DVD is connected to your surround receiver!
As you can see - there is no simple answer without a lengthy Q and A exchange first.
Hi,here is my simple solution... To listen your TV on your samsung ps wx30 surround sound system ,
** you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" or "HDMI out " of your TV unit ** to "AUX input "
or "TV" OR "Any input" of your dvd player or "Optic Cable input" or "HDMI input" ** than just switch to
respective mode on dvd player corresponding your RCA or Optic connection or HDMI .. . There you go..Your TV sound is on the dvd player By this means whatever you watch on the TV (tuner, satellite , Xbox , etc..) ,it's sound will come thru your dvd player.
Hope this helps!..if more he?p requires pls let me know.. Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :)
Yes, I can help you. Your DVD player should have output connectors in the back of it to plug your amplifier or receiver into. If you have a Stereo system (no surround sound speakers, or front center speaker) connect the DVD Audio Cables on the back of the DVD player to the STEREO Output Jacks. If it is connected to the Left Front and Right Front jacks of the "Surround Sound" output jacks instead of Stereo is that the dialog on is sent to the CENTER channel output. If you have no center channel speaker you will not hear it. If you have a surround sound system with two speakers in front and two speaker in back. Then you need to make a change in the Receiver Setup (Which may be set up for 3 speakers in front) so that it is set up for 2 speakers in front. The last thing my simply be that you have a center channel front speaker that is not completely connected because of a wire falling off, etc. Hope this helps, Best, Mark
I TOO HAVE BOUGHT THE AV11K. I TOTALLY HATE IT. ITS LIKE ITS BEEN CO-DESIGNED BY THE EUROPEAN SPACE AGENCY AND THE PLAYER AND WOOFER/AMP DONT FIT TOGETHER.
ID LIKE TO SAY THIS THING IS SO POORLY DESIGNED IT REALLY WOULD BE WORTH SENDING IT BACK FOR A REFUND.
ON THE BACK OF THE PLAYER, AND THE WOOFER YOU'LL FIND LETTERS. IE LF,LB,,,,RF, RB. (LEFT FRONT , LEFT BACK ECT). USING THE 'TULIP CABLES SUPPLIED YOU NEED TO CONNECT THE WOOFER AND THE PLAYER TOGETHER MAKING SURE THE LETTERS CORRESPOND.
DO THIS FOR ALL THE CONECTIONS ON BOTH THE PLAYER AND THE WOOFER. THERE SHOULD BE NON LEFT OVER.
THE LETTERS CORROSPOND THE THE POSSITION OF THE SPEAKER IN THE ROOM. SO ( I ADVISE YOU GET A REAL OF EXRTA SPEAKER CABLE FROM EBAY FOR A COUPLE OF POUNDS ) AND PLACE THE SPEAKERS IN ALL THE FOUR CORNERS OF THE ROOM THEN FILL IN THE NEEDED CABLE TO MAKE IT REACH THE WOOFER, WHICH MOST LIKELY YOU WILL HAVE BESIDE OR BEHIND THE TV AS ITS MOST CONVENIENT THERE ( WOOFERS ARE BASS MAKING SPEAKERS AND DONT REALLY CARE WHERE THEY ARE PLACED IN A ROOM.)
YOU SHOULD BE READY TO GO NOW.
THAT IS IS YOU CAN GET ANY SOUND TO COME OUT THE SURROUND SOUND SYSTEM ( LIKE I COULDNT).
THE SMALLER REMOTE IS FOR THE SOUND. THIS CAN BALANCE LEFT AND RIGHT AND VOLUME. AS WELL AS SELECT A AUX INPUT SUCH AS AN IPOD ECT. ( FOR THIS YOU WILL NEED A SIMPLE 3.5 > STEREO PHONO PLUGS. SIMILAR TO THE ONES USED BY THE AV11K.)
WHY IN HELLS NAME THIS SYSTEM IS ON THE MARKET I DONT KNOW. GOD PLEASE RE-ANIMATE MY LAST, AND TRUSTY PHILIPS DVD PLAYER..
If you have surround speakers with a surround system, then connect the Player to the surround system using for example RCA cables (White and Red).
If you have speakers only, connecting many speakers to a non-surround system won't give you surround. In surround systems the sound is controlled, elaborated and distributed through the speakers by a circuit.
If you have only Left and Right connected the receiver wont know what to send to the other speakers without some kind of DSP.
If you are using an optical or coaxial connection from a dvd player it may utilize the other speakers if the DVD player is providing that information.
If you dont like the DSP but still want to have all the speakers function while listening to non surround sound material try setting the DSP flat or to a reduced setting.
If you are listening to a DVD with surround sound information and the DSP off still provides no sound to the rear speakers check the manual for that receiver for a "auto surround detection" setting.
