Question about Philips HTS3450 System

2 Answers

No sound I have a DVP5982 and recently it stopped playing any audio on my HDTV. I have tried switching to a new HDMI port and playing with the audio settings but nothing has worked. There is no sound output from the speakers. It was working fine but just cut out. The system continues to function, but there is not sound.

    None of the options you state is on the Audio setup menu for our system which is HTS3450/37. Have you any other suggestions?

  • Jordjane Feb 13, 2008

    We do not have a DVP5982!!!! Do you have a solution for the HTS3450/37?

  • Jordjane Feb 14, 2008

    On DVD when on standby - red light burns.
    When DVD is turned on no green light burns on power but DVD responds to all activity e.g.USB, tuner, TV etc.
    When subwoofer is on standby red light burns indicating power available. When DVD turns on no green light on subwoofer appears.
    Multi-connector is OK.
    From observation when equipment is turned on the fan on the sub-woofer does not turn.
    There is no heat coming from sub-woofer as was the case before. System was tested by detaching and reconnecting the multi-connector at sub - woofer - a slight movement on the fan was noticed for a split-second.
    Many thanks

Here is a possible solution to this problem, assuming the DVP5982 is connected to the tv with an HDMI cable.


Press setup on the remote control of your DVP.
· Go to the Audio Setup icon with the right arrow button
· Press the down arrow button to select DIGITAL AUDIO SETUP and press the right arrow button.
· Go to DIGITAL OUTPUT with the cursor buttons and press the right arrow button.

· Go to PCM ONLY with the down arrow button and press OK to confirm
· Press setup to leave the menu.

The DVP5982 will now send analogue stereo audio to the tv.

    What options do you have in the "Audio Setup Page"?

  • David Simpson Feb 13, 2008

    In your original post you said you had a DVP5982. The soloution was for that model.

  • David Simpson Feb 13, 2008

    Could you give me some more information.



    Which version of the HTS3450 do you have? HTS3450/??



    How have you connected the HTS3450 to your TV?


  • David Simpson Feb 13, 2008

    There are hardly any audio option settings on the HTS3450/37, although I have overlooked one obvious check - the mute button on the handset!



    Failing that, check the following:




    • Power indicator on the subwoofer

    • Power supply to the subwoofer

    • Multi-connector from the DVD to the subwoofer. Check for bent pins.

    If all of these are ok, then the problem probably lies with an amplifier output ic (chip).

  • David Simpson Feb 14, 2008

    Sounds like the sub has a fault either on the power supply board, or the output section. Not much can be done except taking to a Philips service centre.



    Sorry I couldn't help further.

LG blue ray won't play sound from RCA sound bar. HDMI cable is hooked into HDMi slot on TV


the details you provided were very vague, however from my experience when a device is connected to another device via and audio capable hdmi cable, that device renders it audio output to the device its connected to and normally turn off all other audio outputs beside optical- I would assume there is an option in the blue ray player to turn off hdmi audio, which will in turn activate other audio outputs- you may also look for audio out port on your tv, it is ideal to connect the sound bar directly to the tv set audio out ports. To sum this up,
if you plan to use your player via hdmi cable you need to turn off hdmi audio output on the blue ray player and the plug an audio cable from your blue-ray player to your sound bar
you may also as i said connect your sound bar directly to your tv, the issue is most tv sets now a days do not have an audio out port, if you do then everything you play thru your tv will have audio via sound bar
there are several way to go here but unless your sound bar has hdmi av switching capabilities (im sure not) this is one of the most simple--Good Luck.

Hook up new blueray thru old home theater system


Yes you can. If you have more than 1 HDMI sources and your old system only has 1 HDMI in, you may want to invest in an HDMI switch. They are inexpensive (under $20 on Amazon) and let you choose 4 HDMI sources to feed your system. The audio is embedded in HDMI and you may have to select the choices (surround versus stereo) when you play the disc.

How do i use it so my tv programming is in surround sound?


if the Comcast cable box has an HDMI output, it should connect directly to one of the TV HDMI inputs. Then connect the LG DVD unit HDMI output to the second HDMI input of the TV. Use two HDMI cables. Do not buy the expensive Monster HDMI cables. If you have already done so, I recommend you take it back for a refund, then buy the low cost HDMI cables which will work just as good and then you can bank the savings toward a new Porsche Boxter!! Now we have the video connected from both the cable box and the LG system.

Now--what do you do if the cable box does not have an HDMI output--just use its component output and your component cable (red, blue and green) to connect to the TV component input. This will still get the video to the TV and good HD pictures. Hum--do you have an HD cable box? You did not say and I just assumed that you did since you got the HDTV. If not, let me know with a follow up question and I will assist in that area further.

Now for the audio connections--The DVD player will not need any connections since it in the LG unit. The sound will come out the speakers when you start playing the DVD. The cable box is where we get the TV audio to feed the LG unit. If the cable box has an optical output, use an optical cable (again the low cost one)and connect to the optical input on the LG.
This will get the TV audio to the surround system. If no optical output, use the red and white (left/right) audio connections and connect to one of the two the LG audio inputs. To hear TV audio on the LG speakers, just switch to that input or the input associated with the optical input.

To watch DVDs, switch the TV to the HDMI input to which you connected the LG unit. For TV, go to the other HDMI input (or component input).
Switch the LG to the audio input to which you connected the cable box to get TV sound.

Hope this gives you food for thought. If so, and you have more questions, just come back in with a follow up.

Connecting ps3 to home cinema


For sound use the Digital Coax in, if the PS3 has digital out. Most HiFi home cinema systems have HDMI with all channels audio through HDMI. Check cinema settings to configure input for hdmi audio, also check PS3 audio output setting options to include all supported audio type by your receiver. It's not just a plug and play. Both systems need to gor through a user setup process to make sure they sync and play well with each other.

MX 3950D Philips - PS3 no sound


Aside from the xbox360 working via the coaxial digital cable. I got the PS3 to work this way.

I had to use the supplied SCART > (Y-video) (Red-Audio) (White-Audio) cable. Basically plugged this in from the PS3 directly to the MX 3950D Aux (Auxiliary) audio input.

On the PS3 audio settings menu, switched from HDMI to the 3rd option SCART.

Turn on the MX 3950D and set to Aux. Bang, got sound again.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I missed this cause I "assumed" the video/audio cable that came with the PS3 was a HDMI to Audio/Video cable, and didn't even see the SCART port in the back of the PS3. So I thought I didn't want to lose 1080p ..etc etc. Anyways. MX 3950D still good =)

Don't worry about sending the TV audio to the Panasonic. Just send a digital audio signal from the cable box to the Panasonic.

DVD - Panasonic connected via HDMI
TV - Panasonic connected via HDI
cable connected to cable box and TV. But you will not really be using the cable connection to the TV (TV Tuner) since you will want HD feed from cable box through HDMI input on TV.

You aren't concerned about feeding the TV speakers because your audio will always come from the home theatre.

Note that some components don't feed audio through HDMI, in which case you will need to use optical digital audio.

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.

what you need to do is look at you HD DVR box and see if you have an "optical" port on the back then check and make sure your home theater box has an "optical" port. if they do all you have to do is go to radio shack and pick up an audio OPTICAL cable and go between your HD DVR and your home theater box.

The HDMI lead only carries the video and audio from the HTS6510/05 to the TV.

The scart carries audio and video both ways.

Re-connect the scart lead and all will be ok.

N.B. When the HTS6510 is switched on, the TV will auto-switch to the scart input. You will then need to switch the TV to HDMI to get the benefit from the DVD upscaling.

Hooking up home theater


Run a regular RCA type audio cable from your TV audio out to your Home Theatre audio in. That is what I have done recently with my Samsung LCD and Home Theater. You then have to put your Home Theater on Aux 1 or Aux 2 to get the sound from TV. Ensure your TV's volume is off.
