No audio from optical output on PDP506 - Televison & Video

Posted by on

  • chaswilson Mar 11, 2008

    This is a Pioeer 506XDE plasma TV. There is no " settings" menu. There is Home Menu, with sub-menus for Picture, Sound, Setup and Options. None of these allow for selection of audio out format. At least as far as I can see. Are you perhaps talking about an engineering menu?

    Hi
    The TV is fed from a SKY HD box via HDMI. Also fed from a Pioneer DVD/HD recorder, and Home theatre system, again via HDMI via a switch box.I want to take an optical audio feed from the TV to my Pioneer AV amp, to feed my good speaker system, whilst still viewing the TV via HDMI. I feed the Sky HD optical output to the AV amp, no problem. Get no output from the Pioneer TV box, no matter what input is feeding it.
    Hope this helps.

I have audio cables going from HD 61g887 jvc tv, to my phillips surround sound system under aux but it is not giving me sound?


hi
you didn't mentioned the model number of your surround sound system, for a better solution its important. any why try the following.

if you are connected the analog audio output of your tv to the system using RCA cable, then go to the setup of the surround sound system and change the input assignment setting from digital to analog.
If your connected the digital output of your tv to the digital input of your surround system using optical cable then, goto the setup of your surround system and change the input assignment to digital (optical) input.


if u need any further assistance fell free to contact through fixya

(Pioneer PDP-4340HD Plasma with PDP-R04U Receiver) My HDMI input works, however having a computer or Xbox connected via HDMI I do not have the optical output signal thus I can not hear audio through my...


I don't have a direct solution but I am having the same problem when connecting (1) my Apple TV (2) my Blu-Ray player, etc. via HDMI. I also have a digital camera that puts out HDMI, and when I hook it up, I get the same story -- video only, no sound through the optical digital output of the TV receiver.

I am guessing that the HDMI inputs were an afterthought on this model, especially since the printed manual doesn't even show or mention the HDMI inputs at all! So my guess is that the TV's receiver does not convert the sound from the HDMI to the optical digital output. It does, however, send the amplified HDMI sound to the stereo speaker outputs on the monitor. It appears that only the digital tuner's 5.1 sound comes out on the optical digital output.

This is what I have observed, for what it's worth.

No sound when hooking up DVi to HDMI...


This is normal, when you go from HDMI to DVI, the sound does not get transmitted. You need a separate cable to go from audio output on the computer to Audio input to the TV. There are speaker (headphone on laptop) jack to RCA audio cables, you could also go with digital audio or even optical out if your computer and TV both have the input and outputs.

5.1


Dear wayne,
Please locate audio input socket on your TV, Then Connect audio output of DVD recorder to this input socket. The optical output of TV goes to input of amp. Since the DVD recorder is connected to the TV and TV's out put connected to the Amp. Now the sound signals from tv and as well from DVD will be 5.1 surround from the amp.
If any case this does not solve your problem, please mail me the photo of the back side of TV's connections at my mail.

Connecting a Samsung HT-Z310 home cinema to a Series 5 Samsung TV and Games consoles, will only work with DVD currently. How do I get the cinema system to work for TV and consoles?


Do you have an Optical Audio cable going from the A/V receiver to the TV? If not, you need to get one. Since the HT-Z310 only has HDMI output and no input there is not audio bypass. Once you connect an Optical Audio cable from the receiver to the TV, anything that goes through the TV (cable audio, PS3 or Xbox 360, DVDs, Radio) will go through the receiver, too.

Audio optical out


The optical output on these TV's only have sound from digital ATSC tuner input, no sound from any other input, that is how it is designed.

No digital to reciever??


This tv will only output the sound from a digital tv channel through the optical output when using the tv's digital tuner. So if you are connecting a DVD etc it will not output through the optical output on the tv. ONLY digital chanels through the tv's tuner will give you sound. Refer to the tv's owners manual for more info.
