Question about TV Receivers & DVRs
I just bought a Philips Plasma TV (42PFL5332D Model) and would like to set it up with my dvd/receiver and set top box so I can watch TV utilizing the surrond sound speakers in the dvd/receiver. Currently I can watch dvd's in surround sound via the dvd/receiver, however when watching TV the sound only comes out of the TV speakers, not the 5 surround sound speaker. Previously I had a Dell 42 inche plasma tv and had it set up for watching tv in surrond sound, but can't figure out how to set up my Philips plasma to dot he same.
Plug the TV to an open channel on your receiver via this output:
*Rear, 1 x Digital audio output (coaxial) ( TOSLINK )
This will look like a single RCA output plug.
Set that input channel on your receiver to some sort of virtual surround mode because it doesn't look like your HDTV has a decoder in it (meaning it will come out stereo and the receiver will have to fake it).
Turn the volume all the way down on the TV and use the receiver to control TV volume just as you do with DVDs.
*Substitute this with the digital audio output on your set top box if you are sending video only to the TV from the set top box (component, DVI or s-video connections). So video goes to the TV, audio to the receiver.
