    maybe I wasn't clear, I connected my pc to the surround system using an optical wire, the soundcard I just bought, a creative soundblaster X-Fi Gamer also has an optical S/PDIF port, so what should I add?? Thanks in advance

The problem is that your system does not support surround via S/PDIF. It detects it as a regular stereo jack. You could always add a digital out to your PC such as Optical or Coax Digital.

I have a Sony bluray surround sound and lg smart tv, I can't play my Apple TV sound through my hts, all my connections are hdmi and both systems have arc, please help?


Is your Apple TV connected to the Sony or directly to your TV? If directly connected to the Sony HTS ARC shouldn't be needed and you should have audio. If that's the case check the Apple TV settings to be sure it isn't set for s/pdif output. If connected to the TV then the TV should be able to put a s/pdif signal on the HDMI ARC pin but perhaps there's no way to assign it to the HDMI input coming from the HTS? It may be going to the ARC pin on the Apple TV HDMI input which won't give you any sound. Normally ARC is intended to put the s/pdif signal from the TV's internal tuner on the HDMI cable from the HTS so the HTS can play TV sound without having to tun a separate Toslink cable from the TV s/pdif output to the HTS. One other thing: Early HDMI cables do not include the ARC wire so be sure you have ARC capable cables. Look in your TV documentation to see if there is a way to assign the ARC output to a different incoming HDMI input if the Apple TV is connected directly to the TV. If not you may need to resort to a Toslink optical cable from your TV to an optical input on your HTS. Or actually running that cable from Apple TV to the HTS would be better since it's possible it could carry surround sound. Most TV's optical outputs are limited to the 2 channel sound the TV can accept.

Cubase studio 5 has deactivated the VST system links due to too many internal errors


In my experience, reasons for seeing errors in VST System Link (VSL) are usually due to the digital signal path (audio and/or data) not being routed properly within the System Link dialog box. If for example, you're using s/pdif between two ASIO 2 compatible audio cards properly (OUT of card #1, to IN of card #2 - then OUT of card #2 back IN of card #1), you also have to set your s/pdif System Link I/O channels in the dialog box to the 'same' channel...If say your options are s/pdif channels 9 & 10 (or whatever they are), you set the I/O's of both computers VSL dialog boxes to either channel 9, or all to channel 10. You of course need to route your digital audio properly within your audio interface! (see your cards documentation on that).
You can test if it's routed properly by 'listening' to audio from each computer, from the other...meaning listen at computer 2, from computer 2 & visa-versa. If you hear the audio thhen it should be correct. But in order to 'hear' the audio (besides proper settings in the VSL dialog box) you must 'also' set those digital audio s/pdif channels within Cubase's VST Inputs/connections. But in 'this case', you use both channels 9 & 10 for your Inputs/Outputs. They also say it's best to place your VSL digital audio channels at the top of the Inputs/Outputs list.
You do not need to keep the s/pdif channels in the VST Inputs/connections to make System Link work however, that's if you need to 'listen' or if you need to test whether it's routed properly.
Getting VST System Link working can seem complicated at 1st, but once you understand, and have it working, you realize it's actually not that hard at all. I recommend taking notes, and writing down what you did to make it work, as you go along the way. That has come in very handy when I need to use it again. Also READ your PDF manual and follow that to the letter!

Bought a rca surround sound system an hooked it wks great but cant get surround sound on my cable chanels just when watching a dvd...what do i need to do?


You need to make sure that the Audio in the programs you're watching are broadcast in Surround.

You can also select a channel that is broadcasting in HD, and Digital Audio to see if that helps

To save money and bandwidth, they'll only broadcast the audio in the Analog format.

Hope that helps.

How to get non-hd DD or DTS sound from blue-ray on old receivers


It is not necessarily what features you have to look for, it is what connections you need to look for. Most blu ray players have the hdmi ports. On my blue ray I found it and it has the fiber optic end. I have used that and to me it sound just as good.

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.

Tv surround


It depends on what you currently have as equipment.

You'll have to have something that outputs in digital audio (coaxial or optical). Either your reciever (Cable/Satellite) or the TV. You'll just hook that up to the Surround Sound unit and then just turn on the Surround System when you want surround sound.

You'll have to connect the TV as you would normally with audio cables sicne you'll want stereo sound on the regualr channels.

Hooking up to digital cable box


Darth,
There are 2 ways you can accomplish this.First is the least quality which is via coax.What you want to do is connect the cable service coming from the wall to the input on your cable box.Then the TV output on the cable box goes to the input on your surround sound then the coax goes from the surround sound to the coax input on the TV.The second is to Connect using the RCA AV1 input.what you want to do is look at the back of the digital cable box and locate the OUTPUTS for the RCA jacks(or AV output)connect RCA cables (yellow red white) to the 1st INPUT on your surround sound.depending on models you should have a couple of different INPUTS for a signal.Choose one and plug it in.After that take a second pair of RCA cables and connect them to video OUTPUT on the surround sound and connect them to your AV1 OUTPUT on your TV.With the original remote for your TV,NOT the cable universal one,Look for an INPUT button on the remote.Some are called input some are called SOURCE,TV/VIDEO basically it tells the TV what signal source to look at on the back of the TV.If you dont have the remote put the TV on channel 3 then press the channel down button and when the TV gets to channel 1 press it again and it should start cycling through the AV inputs,choose AV1.


Once you have done this you have correctly
hooked everything up,BUT Like I said depending on the model of surround sound you are going to have to CHOOSE or physically select or "tell" the surround sound receiver which input to RECEIVE the sound through.In general the INPUT on the back of the surround sound will be labeled with something like Video IN,VCR IN, DVD IN and so forth.Make sure the surround sound is selected to Receive the sound coming from the digital box.Sometimes there is a dial on the front of the surround sound that allows you to select which INPUT on on the back becomes active .make sure that what you have selected matches what you have your cable box is connected to.Hope this helps!

This is possible a number of ways. Depending on the type of TV you have, it may have audio out on the back of the TV. This will be two jacks that are RED and WHITE, and it should be labeled "TV OUT" or "OUT". Use an RCA audio cable and connect these two jacks to the TV jacks of the same colors on your surround sound unit. If your TV does NOT have audio out jacks, you can still accomplish this by use of a VCR. Just run your main TV input [coaxial cable from antenna or cable/dish] into the VCR, and then out to your TV as normal. Leave your TV on channel 3 [or 4, or whichever channel the VCR uses]. If you're using a regular antenna, you can switch channels on the VCR. If you're using cable, you should be able to just change channels on the cable box. This will give you surround sound from an older TV without audio outs. But most larger and newer TVs have an audio out jack on the back. Hope this helps!

Surround cuts out???


Are you useing a digital audio cable when its cutting on & off? How long between the on & off? I have the same problem when I use a digital audio cable or a coaxial audio cable from my DVD player. To use the surround (6 CH) feature you need to use the 6 channel RCA jacks and if what ever your hooking up dosent have the RCA outputs your out of luck. My DVD player does have the 6 channel outputs and they work but the digital cables won't work. What are you connecting to it? I think something is wrong with the digital circuit board in mine, I would like to replace it and see. Reading your manual will help understand the 6 channel RCA and fiber optic digital cables. I hope any of this helped.
