For surround sound, you need an A/V receiver with 5.1 or 7.1 surround capability. Depending on what kind of receiver you have, the DVD player, satellite/cable box, etc hooks to the receiver, those signals go out to the TV, and the speakers hook to the receiver. The receiver decodes the signal from the cable/satellite box or DVD player and routes it to the appropriate speakers. If the TV program or DVD isn't HD or coded for surround sound, the best you can expect is 2.1 channel stereo sound. OR, you can hook everything (DVD, satellite/cable box) to the TV and run an optical cable from the Digital Output of the TV to the receiver, which is basically the same thing, just a different way to hook everything up. Hope this helps
you are using a stereo speaker so definitely you won't get surround sound, Most TV may have either RCA or 3.5mm headphone jack type, both serve the same function, what you need to do is just use a convertor check from this link.
The broadcaster of the TV station has to tell you they are transmitting surround sound - sometimes they are just transmitting stereo. Also, the media as in CD's and DVD movies must have surround sound embedded or recorded on it to allow surround sound.
You have probably solved this problem now, but incase you havnt, we had the same problem, the wrong lead came with ours, you need to plug the red and white into the audio out, and this should solve the problem, hope this helps
I am trying to connect the sound box to the TV (Flatscreen ) so that I can have sourround sound, but on the box it has inputs and this is also displays on the TV inputs... ? So where are the outputs so that the sound can come through the speakers???? puzzled!
I have connected my new surround sound to the dvd player as everything else runs through it. Also found that it has a seperate switch for 5.1 surround sound (all the speakers active) and ordinary stereo. I'm unfamiliar with yours, but check for this switch, mine was hidden on the back of the base speaker.
To upmix 2-channel sound (such as that in a TV broadcast) into 5.1 sound, press AMP and then SUR. DECODE until "PL II Movie" is displayed. This will give you "cinema-like" surround sound from a 2-channel source.
You can also assign this to one of your "Scenes" by following the procedure for scene assignment on page 26 of your manual.
