Question about Panasonic SC-HT680 System

1 Answer

Hooking Up The Theatre System to the TV and Cable.

I Have a PANASONIC SA HT680 DVD HOME THEATRE SOUND SYSTEM with the 5 disc. Now i have the theatre system connected to the cable box. I can hear the tv coming through the speakers when it is in Aux but I don't know how to get the dvdscreen to show or to come through the tv. I can place the dvd in the slot and hear everything but i can't get it on the tv. And also how do i connect the tv, theatre system and my cable box together to come through the theatre system so that i can switch from tv to dvd and see it not just hear it through the speakers?

This means you likeley have your cable box connected correctly, if you have it connected to a standard definition input (AV in or coaxial) make sure the that the dvd player is not in progressive mode.

Hooking up audio video to cable box with home theatre

From Cable Box to Input on DVD Player, from DVD Player Out, to TV in, from TV Audio Out to Home Theater Audio In.

That should work.

Will have to have the VCR on to watch cable. Plus make sure that you use A/V cables as much as possible. Coax works ok, but not as good as R/W/Y.

Dvd totv

IF you have a cable running from the tv to your system from the audio output you may have to turn on or turn up the output in the tv menu,some SONY tv s are like this. If you have done this and are useing a amp like a ONKYO or YAMAHA etc you will have to go to the input assign in the setup menu and tell the amp were the cable is pluged in and which type.
hope this helps.

audio/video OUT from the cable box to the aux IN on the panasonic right? So you can see the output from the cable box but only sound from dvd. Are you changing the input on the tv when you go from watching the cable box to watching the DVD? the panasonic handles audio, but the video from each goes to two different inputs on the sony. I hope none of this sounds condescending.

Do not know how to connect the tv, theatre system to the cable box.

have you got the cable box video out (yellow RCA) connected to the video input on the panasonic? What kind of tv is it? Is the tv displaying the input that the panasonic is connected to? If "progressive" is selected, it will not display on a standard definition tv. Does it matter which mode the panasonic is in (CD/DVD)? I guess I'm just asking for more info ;-)
