Question about Samsung HT-Q100 System
I have the samsung HT-Q100 surround sound system with the dvd all in one. i am trying to connect this to my plasma tv via the HDMI cable provided. i have followed the instructions several times over and when everything is connected up as stated i carnt get a picture from the dvd to the tv, nor is any sound coming out of the tv itself. the dvd is playing and the surround sound system is working as the sound from the dvd is playing. ive tried an optical cable as additional ways of means but that doesnt do anything any different. i though the surround system was faulty so i took it back and got it replaced and ive got the same problem still. surely this has to be compatable as the dvd and tv are meant to go together and ive seen the tv and the same dvd surround system for sale as one whole package. please help as im desperate and i dont know what to do next??
I have a plasma samsung 42 inch and i dont know how to connect my jacks red,white, yellow from the dvd to the plasma and what channel should the plasma be on to see the dvd ???? thanks anthony

I had this problem for a week before I realised what I was doing wrong.
I have a 40'' Samsung LCD connected to .........
a PS3 with HDMI
a Sky HD Box with HDMI
a wii with scart
and a Samsung surround sound 5.1 with HDMI.
The Surround sound is connected to the Sky HD with an optical cable.
Also, the surround sound is connected to the TV with components, red and white, from the AUX IN 2 (on the surround sound) to the Audio out (on the Tv).
I dont know if this is the best way for this but when you put the surround sound on AUX 2 it works through the PS3, wii etc etc.
Hope this helps.

The optical cable is for digial SOUND, not picture. You are already getting this with the HDMI. If you have changed all these things, the problem MAY be with the television set. What did the repairman say to you? Is he sure the HDMI connections on your set are functioning?

You are operating under some false assumptions here. You are getting sound from your DVD player because it is decoding the sound and sending it to the speakers it came with. This sound is NOT coming from the HDMI cable or being sent through it, therefore if the TV HDMI inputs WERE bad (I agree, both being no good is rare, but it IS possible) you would still get the sound. Assuming that your HDMI cable is good and your connections are correct AND that you are selecting the proper input on the television, your system SHOULD be working properly. Without being there to see what is what, I cannot say from the information at hand what is causing your problem. You exchanged everything BUT the television, and a repairman did not find an issue. I'm sorry to say, I do not know what else to tell you, or where to tell you to turn at this point. Perhaps someone else on here can assist you further. Good luck.
