Question about Televison & Video
Hiya, can someone out there help me?
I have connected up the Plasma to the Home cinema kit, with an HDMI lead.
The problem that Im having is getting all my other equipemnt hooked up, so that it all works & hear it through the Home cinema kit.
To my mind (although I'm not sure! lol) if everything ends up working, through the tv, then you should get the sound through the home cinema kit for everything, right?
here's what else I'm trying to hook up.
Sky + (satellite TV), a DVD RW, and a VCR. Before installing everything else (including the Home cinema with DVD) I had perfect volume etc on the TV.
I then had everything else hooked up, it all worked, but, no volume from the home cinema kit, except for when you played a dvd in the home cinema kit. There was no volume from the Sky+ at all.
Arghhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!! My husband is a technophobe, so unfortunately, its all down to me! lol
Can you tell me, is there a specific way that it should all be connected to each other, & then to TV or home cinema kit? (I did think the HDMI lead from TV to home cinema would take care of that part)
The VCR is a real basic Sony with two Scart's, & the DVD RW is Akura (a cheap brand, but worked ok when in my old set up)
help.........in real layman's terms please! lol
thanks nicky x
Hi well i had the same problem and it took me a while to figure it out.
I have a audio out on my samsung television and i connected that to the Aux 2 on my DVD player that came with the Home Cinema System. If i set the DVD player on Aux 2 i can have the sound of any connections i have made to the television including my Wii, a lite on DVD recorder and off course my sky and the original DVD player of the cinema system.
there is a little bug though if i change to aux 2 after i have switched other system on first it takes a second or two before it comes on 2-1 speakers. Also the sound has two controls one for TV and other for the DVD. I can switch TV volume off and still can hear the Home Cinema system. So i require to set two different volumes to get the right setting. i can live with that.
hope the information is useful.

Have the same set up as nickynox and the solution is you need to connect the audio through a optical cable from the home cinema to the tv. the home cinema has to be on setting AUX to get sound from tv and sat :)

A good way to go is to connect the home cinema kit staight to the tv though phono leads, see if your tv has a phono in and out this must not be a av socket. you should then connect it in to your cinema kit so what ever you watch comes though ur cinema system
hope this helps
