We recently acquired a Toshiba 32ZD16G from a friend as part of home theatre package. The system had been set up to use the Amplifier as a tuner and we;ve had to do te same because we cannot get any sound out of it. Whilst we can use the system, in this mode, the problem is we can't get all FTA (Free to Air) channels because not all of them are re-transmitted on our Pay TV provider, Foxtel/Sky. The mute is off and no matter what we have tried, cannot get any sound out of it at all - even using headphones. I am wondering if either there is an internal mute - it's not shown on the TV menu or whether the TV's sound circuitry is no longer functioning. Any ideas?

is the dvd player a home theatre system?if yes,does the tv play sound via the dvd home theatre speakers when it is on?if yes then maybe you should double-check your audio port connections between the two for correct configurations
Depending on the year of your model of VIZIO your digital optical output may be tied to the DTV input only. Meaning the only time you will have audio coming out of the digital optical output is when your using the tuner and your on a digital channel. If your television is newer and the digital optical output is in white on the back of the television than it is tied to HDMI and the DTV Tuner and you will pass audio through the digital optical output when using HDMI or the Digital Tuner.
Now to get connect the HT: Normally you would run a digital optical cable from the source device to the home theatre system. Meaning if it was a PS3 you would run a optical cable from the Digital Out on the back of the PS3 to the Digital In on the Home Theatre receiver. If it was a DVD player than you would run the optical cable from the DVD player to the HT receiver. If you have a newer VIZIO and the optical output is in white and not black than you can run HDMI from the PS3 to the VIZIO and then run a optical cable from the VIZIO to the Home theater receiver.
You will have to adjust the audio setting in the PS3 to run audio out of the HDMI port if it is set to run audio out of the Digital Out or AV out. Also, if your going to run audio from the PS3 to the HT receiver through the Digital Out then you need to change the audio setting in the PS3 to Digital Out.
1. Select (Sound Settings) under (Settings) in the home menu. 2. Select [Audio Output Settings].
3. Select the input connector on the audio device.
Channel numbers and audio formats that are supported vary depending on the connector in use. AV is 2 ch. only, Digital Out is 2 ch. & 5.1 ch, and HDMI is upto 7.1.
