Hi evilfan,

If I may add to the postings of Ekse and TampaNative......

Depending on what available cables and connectors that you may have the basic idea is from the cable company in to your Motorola receiver then to your Samsung HT-X50 then to the Sony Wega as below image shows. All other additional devices such as another DVD player or an iPod Nano with Video Dock or anything else would have to be connected to the Samsung.

All external devices would have to be plug in the the different INPUTs as you may decide which is to which. What is important to remember is that everything goes through the Samsung be it incoming or outputs.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Evilfan,
Your HT-X50 should have come with a patch cable with one red and one white RCA connector on each end, and your Verizon HD box or components connected in series with it up to the and possibly including the TV should have Audio Outs that match in color but would be female in comparison to the ends of the patch cable to pick up the audio signal that your new Home theater audio system needs to put out an audible signal through your speakers. So you need to patch audio from a source to your home theater receiver, and there are other ways/cables to connect to depending on what your specific devices support.
Let us know how it goes?

I think you should connect your home theater system into your Tv, or your cable box but im pretty sure you should connec it to your tv.

I dont have a manual here right now, i can get one later.

Basicly first you need to find out the available connection options. Consult all manuals you find and try to figure out how to do it. Or post here the available connections your tv has now.

Waiting for your reply.

    I had a look around, I supose the dvd player has a Scart connector, you should connect that into your tv, and possibly a few audiocables. the smartcable will enable you to watch movies and so on with the theater, but that might not give sound for tv channels.



    So after hooking up the scart connector you might need to connect a two or more audiocables. if available.



    Il know more after you tell me what kind of connectors your tv and the theater has.



    :)

    Jim please continue with TampaNative he clearly has more knowledge in this issue than I.



    Good luck, both of you.

I have a new samsung 40" led tv and i have


The specs say that it has an optical audio in on your home theater system. So the easiest way to hook up is to connect the optical audio out of your tv to the optical audio in of your home theater system and walla! What ever play on the tv will play on the home-theater system. You are looking for a Toslink optical audio cable

Sony BDV-370 DVD/5.1 theater hooked to Sony Bravia TV and cable box. No sound comes from rear or center speakers with HD cable.


Three things can cause this:
1) not all HD is recorded in surround sound. You can very well watch an HD program that just has Left/Right stereo audio. Tombstone on bluray is even only in Dolby 2.0
2) wrong connection is used. If you only use red/white analog stereo cables you will only get sound out of the left/right mains.
3) setting on the cable box is set to stereo and not surround. Changing this varies by cable box manufacturer.

Hey my nameis Mike Houston of DISH Network and I see there is a problem with the Sony hometheater system connecting with the DISH receiver. To get the full surroundsound you want there are two different options you can use, the first is to usethe HDMI and connect the RCA cable or you can use the Optical cable for sound.If you have any questions or concerns please e-mail me back; michael.houston@dishnetwork.com.

No sound from speakers when tv is on


It is likely that you do not have an HDMI cable connecting your cable/satelite set top box to the reciever. If you you run coxial striaght to your TV you will need a digital tuner and run the audio componet cable to the receiver and picture cable to the TV. Also be sure that TV out is perferably with optical audio. Hope this helps. If not its all listed simply in the owners manual. Try Sony's website if you lost it.

How to connect new HD cable box to receiver


HI:
You are using a new HD Cable box, that are using componet video cables for HD, Unfortunetly this receiver does not have componet inputs, so you will just have to run the audio from the televison directly to the receiver by connecting the video out and audio out from the television to the receiver's video Input one. This will require a normal RCA composite cables yellow,red,white. Connect one end of each of the cables to televisions output terminals, and the other to the input one on the receiver. Note: Your TV might have a seperate term called Monitor out, Connect the yellow here, and the red and white to audio out. You can do the same for the DVD but you have to use the same cables,Also the television will not display HD picture this way as this is not a HDTV Receiver. If you just want TV sound to the receiver then do not use the video(Yellow) cable just use the audio out terminals from the tv and connect to Input one on the receiver. you can do this with the cable box also but you have to use RCA type cables . If you want the full HD experience then a new up todate receiver is necessary.

Make sure the TV is set to output audio to the digital optical port. Then make sure you have selected the proper output mode on the home theatre. Unplug the optical cable from the back of the home theatre and see if the red laser is on (don't shine it in your eyes! :))

You need an Optical Audio1.gif Cable. Hook one end to the HD Cable Box and the other to your Surround Sound System1.gif. If you dont have an Optical Cable to your Cable Box, then try using the usual audio cables. But, I have HD and it worked with the Optical Audio Cable.
