HDMI is the best connector for these pieces. I checked and they all have them.

    HDMI can carry audio as well. See if will work with only those connections first. There may be a "HDMI Audio Button" somewhere on the receiver.

    After that, I'd use the optical output.

    Thanks for the rating!

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.

How do i connect a nintento wii to my sony home theatre system model htsf 470?


Hi beejaysaunde,

To connect your Wii to the htsf 470:

1. Connect your Wii to your TV.
2. Use a separate audio cable (red/white) and connect from your TV to your htsf 470.
3. Choose the correct selection on the htsf 470.

This setup will have your Wii's video go directly to your TV and the Wii's audio to be sent to the stsf470.

I hope this helps.

Sony BDV 370 home cinema system and Sony 40hx703 television. The home cinema plays disks etc. through the cinema speakers. But will not play television sound through the cinema speakers it is connected...


You need to use a HDMI 1.4 Cable and it needs to be connected to to an HDMI socket with an ARC (audio return channel). Alternatively you can connect using an optical cable (TOSLINK).

Lots of components , need proper hook-up


I reccomend a Denon AVR-2809. It had 4 HDMI inputs, all 1.3a and higher, and one HDMI out for your TV!

No sound when viewing normal TV broadcasts


You need to have either the red/white audio cable connected from TV out to cinema system in or a optical or coaxial cable tv out to cinema in.

Not getting sorround sound from my tv


only the hd channels get great surround sound. if your tv has an optical audio out and your surround has the optical in input. then i suggest buying a fiber optic wire for the audio you'll hear a big differance. just hope that the audio stays in sync unlike my cheap *** koss system

Hook up


well u cannot hook almost any devices with the SC-HT500.
I have this homecinema system for 5 years now, and i had to buy another stand alone DivX player to hook it up, but can't get the sound in dolby from the standalone player since the panasonic SC-HT500 has only 2 analog stereo RCA ports (audio in) in the back and a scart (A/V out) and component video (Video out).
At that time it was a very good system, but since i have bought a Full HD LCD tv with 1080p capabilities, I realised that my home cinema system i.e the Panasonic SC-HT500 is kind of useless, in the sense that you cannot even change the player for another one since the whole spaker and power connections are made trhough a special cable from the subwoofer. :(
best solution is that put the system back in a corner and get a new system which is not an all-in-one system. Preferrable get home cinema systems that come with a receiver, separate dvd player and speakers and subwoofer hooked to the receiver.
you asked how to hook these devices to your tv,, well the panasonic dvd recorder is better if you connect it via HDMI cable if you can. In the other case, connecting them with a scart cable would be another solution.

Set up help!!


Firstly connect your home theatre outpu HDMI to HDMI input1 on the TV. Then connect the PS£ HDMI to the other HDMI input on the TV. Now connected the optical cable from the PS3 to the optical input of the home cinema system. Your should now have surround sound from the PS3 and DVD.
