Question about Samsung HT-X40 System

3 Answers

Getting home theatre sound AND sound from TV

I have a Samsung 40" HDTV and a Samsung X40 Home Theatre. Occasionally when switching to surround sound from just TV speakers I get ALL speakers going, that is, the 6 surround sound speakers on the X40 and the 2 speakers on the TV. The result is reverberation effect. To fix I must 'reboot' the TV, that is, turn off the TV and X40. That clears things up. Any ideas what causes this and what the fix might be. It had occurred occasionally, but in recent days it is happening more frequently.

The reverberation effect is probably due to a couple millisecond delay between the audio from the HT-X40 and the audio from your TV. I would recommend turning your TV speakers down to zero. Also, if you have 2 Samsung components linked with an HDMI, you should turn off that HDMI-CEC feature that they have. It lets the TV and HT-X40 to talk to each other and occasionally they argue.

Actually, the manual does address this problem in the troubleshooting section...to get all 6 speakers to work instead of just the 3, all you have to do is press the "mode" button located right under the "audio" button. When you press this it changes the audio mode from the default being "Stereo" to either Music, Cinema, Matrix, or Pro Logic. Use the Matrix mode for all 6 speakers (it should show you right on your DVD Receiver's display which speakers are being used)

I dont think you are suppose to have the tv speakers on with the theather systems speakers on because of the magnectic field can cause your tv speakers to mess up.

You have several ways to do this. You can hdmi cables from the two units and plug them into your tv if it supports hdmi and run the audio out portion on the back of the tv and hook that into one of the audion inputs on the surround unit. Or you run audio directly out of the bluray using rca, digital coax, or digital optical cable. Turn the surround reciever to the corresponding input that you choose to use.

No surround sound through tv


May be you have to set the Pro-logic option soundfield, this will matrix a 5.1 surround sound effect, unless of course you are sending a Dolby Digital 5.1 audio signal from your TV broadcast into the Home theatre system, also have to check the TV audio output to send audio output to a Home theatre system in other than 2 channel stereo.

I have no surround sound when watching normal T.V


Hi there, in order to listen to t.v you need to purchase an optical cable and plug this in the optical out of the tv to the optical in on the blue ray then select D.IN.1 on the blue ray and press mode on the remote until it says matrix . This will allow you to listen to the t.v through all speakers. hope this helps. Also remember to take the rubber protectors off the ends of the optical cable, a lot of people forget this :)

SURROUND SOUND


Do you have HDTV with Digital Coax out or Optical Out? If you do you can connect your surround system rear port mark Optical In from your HDTV Optical out. Tosh link fiber cable..

Now if you don't have HDTV with Digital out nor a HDTV but CRT set with Analog Stereo output you can connect using RCA left/right cables to bottom of the unit where you have HDMI, Component and Audio out. This is where you would connect your TV too. For audio playback using the AUX mode.
