Question about Audio Players & Recorders

2 Answers

I am trying to set up a home theater system. I have a JVC LT-32P300 32" LCD TV with 3 HDMI ports, an optical out, places for components, etc. I have a Comcast HD receiver with an optical out, HDMI, and component ports. I also purchased a Sony Bravia DAV-HDX589W Home Theater system today as well. I own a Xbox 360 Elite, and I want to be able to connect all of these items through the Surround sound system. I have a component cable, 2 HDMI Cables, a video cable (yellow) and an optical cable.

    I have done this, my TV says it will not send optical out if devices are connected through HDMI.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The JVC will only feed audio out through optical in HDTV mode. Any source fed to the JVC through HDMI will have no output. This is an implementation of the HDCP, copyright protection.

Proposed connection:

  • Comcast HD receiver to JVC through HDMI - audio & video;
  • DAV-HDX589W to JVC through HDMI - audio & video;
  • Xbox 360 Elite to JVC through HDMI - audio & video;
  • JVC through analog stereo AUDIO OUT to DAV-HDX589W's TV/VIDEO A-AUDIO IN-L.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Draw a diagram keeping in mind that all the gadgets that you have invested in have to be Connected in such a way that you should not have to power on anything to use another thing. And the best cable should be used with the video and audio system unless you like to hear and see the games better. Also their placing has to be such that there is no criss crossing of cables even if behind the system.

No optical output except when using ipod dock on tv


Unfortunately, there is a limitation on the JVC LT47P789 digital optical audio out. This audio output does not get the signal from any HDMI source. This is described on page 49 of the user manual. The manual is available from JVC here: http://resources.jvc.com/Resources/00/01/14/YA653ien.pdf . There is a similar restriction for the analog audio output from the TV with the HDMI inputs.

If you use the component audio/video inputs on the TV from your set-top cable box and DVD player, then the optical audio output will work. Otherwise, you need to find a way to connect the audio directly to the receiver. Some receivers have multiple HDMI input ports. These then forward the video signal on their HDMI output to the TV. Another option is to connect the analog audio outputs from the cable box and DVD player to the receiver. This may require resetting the Audio output from these set-top boxes to keep from sending the audio over the HDMI cable. With the Cinemate, you might need some sort of audio input switch or an HDMI converter and switch that separates the audio from the video signal.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with more information about your devices for ideas on how to work-around the problem with this JVC TV.

Check the input selector on the TV, if you have audio only then it is a cable problem,
that means that cables are not connected in the right way.

I wanted to know if there is a way to hook up the sound from a Panasonic DMP-BD655P-K Blu-Ray player to my existing Yamaha DVX C310SW home theater system. I know I can hook the Blu Ray directly to the TV...


Yes this can be done. You have several options for audio hookup. Stereo 2-channel (white and red) RCA cables, digital audio (optical or coaxial) or HDMI. Your home theater must have the inputs available such as optical, coaxial etc. Typically the stereo 2-channel RCA is the simple way. Just connect from the Bluray audio outputs to the Home theater inputs (white and red) for stereo sound. Select the input on the home theater. For Dolby Digital 5.1 use optical digital audio cable (black port) or coaxial (orange RCA port) from Bluray to similar home theater input.

I have an RCA home theatre...model rt2910. I have hooked my PS3 via HDMI to the TV for the video and used an optical cable for the audio. I set the PS3 to send video via HDMI and audio via optical cable....


You should have the HDMI plugged into the Home theater unit. The theater unit then is attached to the TV using the HDMI out.
The home theater unit passes the HDMI through to the TV while playing the audio for you.
You will likely need to select the correct source on your RT2910.
Here is a link to the manual.

See the section entitled "Connecting to HDMI Components" for an illustration of what I have described above.

Connect the HDMI outputs on your various components to the HDMI inputs on your receiver. Connect the HDMI output on the receiver to the input on your TV. HDMI incorporates digital audio, so no need to buy optical audio cables. If your receiver does not have HDMI inputs for all your components, you will need to make a choice. HDMI = Best, component video + optical audio = second best, S-video+ optical audio = third best
