I have a vizio tv, sony dvd player and direct tv. i also have a denon avr-1905/785 surround sound receiver. i can't get the surrond sound to work while watching tv but it be comes through if i am watching...

If your TV has audio out and your surround sound has an audio in you need to get a lead to connect them together, most of them have - then you just select the Aux on the DVD/surround player (or whatever the input is called on the back) and everything comes through your speakers. If you only have headphone out jack on the TV it will mean you won't have your TV speakers working. I hope this is not really obvious to you and it was the first thing you tried!

Surround sound hookup question?

It looks like all you'll need to do is hook up audio out from DirecTV to audio in on the surround sound system. Sony has an interesting hookup recommendation guide on the product support site:

That should give you the connection options. The short answer, though, is to connect the best audio out from DirecTV to an audio in on the surround sound and then choose that option in the surround sound system when you want to watch TV.

How Do I Hook This Thing Up?!?

See what audio outputs your tv has. See if your HTS has matching inputs. If it does connect them with the proper cable(s). Connecting to the tv should cause your HTS to work with anything you are watching on the tv.

Volume does not work.

Good day.
You are possibly right. Audio circuit might got affected. I would like to suggest likewise that you check also if the speaker is busted, the audio IC and if it receives supply from the flyback.

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!
