Hi Iv'e just bought a panasonic sc-pt 450 home theatre system and cannot get any sound when watching tv programmes my set up is a TH50PZ70B tv set SC-PT450 home theatre system and sky satelite the 450 is conneted via HDMI cable to the tv set on HDMI 2 socket and sky is connected to tv with a scart socket to AV1. Pictures are all ok it is just the sound Iv'e done a test on the speakers and they are all working but I watched a dvd and there was only sound coming from the front speakers not the rear and the dvd was recorded in 5.1 surround dolby digital I have turned on every thing it says in the manual but getting very frustrated as the instructions do not seem very easy to use the viera link seems to be working ok and I have changed the sound setting from tv to theatre on the link but that did not work either I have tried changing all the outputs it says in the manual but I am not very technical minded so you may have to explain in latmans terms can you help with any suggestions regards Brian

    I see your point but I was wondering if I have not made the right connetions thanks for your advice regards Brian

    Hi ginko thanks for your reply I have tried the settings you have reccomended, on the latter one I don't get any picture at all I can only think It has got something to do with the setup as I said I am not the most technically minded and have looked at the menus for tv and theatre system and cannot find anything for audio in or out. Only on the viera link does it say audio, tv or home theatre it works on tv but nothing on theatre do I have to have this optical or coaxial lead, the sales person in the shop said the only connection I needed was the HDMI cable regards Brian

The system should work even with your current connection, after you set audio for hdmi input/output properly, but you are still using a bad connection setting.
To have HDMI connection working you need to check audio output settings on TV menu, and confirm HDMI settings on the home theater, refer to page 22 on SC-PT450 manual.
To build a 5.1 Digital connection you should connect sky box or receiver to your DVD, and then the dvd player directly to your TV using the HDMI input. This will give you the best possible picture because the signal is totally digital. You will need to go into the DVD player/sky box setup menu to select the proper audio-out method for this connection, and then SC-PT450 will be receiving 5.1 surround.

If you want 5.1 then you need to go optical or coaxal from the dvd player to the receiver. the 5.1 is not goin through the hdmi cable and back through the scart socket.

    the sales people dont know, most of the time they just want to sale it to you so they say what they know and that is it will work how they say, but you will need to use 1 rca plug if you have this jacks and you already prob have one, you can use yellow red or white, it does not matter. if you only have matching optical then you will need to go optical. once you get it setup. if you dont get sound then you will need to select optical in as your audio selection on that input mode.

    sometimes tv doen't design audio pass through for stuff like this. for digital, but if your tv has a digital output jack it may not be true 5.1 enless you come straigh from dvd to sournd.

How do you get sound to come from tv out of speakers of home theatre system


It just depends on the tv you have. If you hook up the RCA jacks to the (Audio out) of the TV into one of the (AUX in) ports of the home Theatre system you should be able to geet the sound that comes from the TV to play out the theatre system. If you are watching through a cable box you will need to hook the RCA cables to the cable box (Audio out) too the theatre systems (AUX in), in insted.

Yes. Connect the audio from the cable box to the home theatre. Just change your function when u are watching tv to video 2 or where ever u plugged it in. Then turn your tv volume down and use volume on this sanyo

My surround sound will not work through the TV, only the DVD


If your tv and surround has an optical input/output.Then you can connect with an optical lead.This will then play the sound from whatever you are watching.You normaly select dig1 or input1 on the surround system.

Ghosting of picture from a Panasonic home cinema system


There must be a fault in the screening of the internal wiring to the scart outlet in the home theatre system. I simply changed the way the player was connected to the TV and the interference disappeared:-

1.) I used the RCA video outlet instead of the scart lead. Picture quality was not compromised. FYI the Panasonic Plasma TV I have has only RGB video input sockets at the back, so I used a scart to RCA adaptor to overcome this problem of connecting old technology to new.

2.) The surround sound when playing DVDs is generated directly from the home theatre system so there was no need to connect the audio from the home theatre system to the TV

3.) I used a pair of RCA leads to connect the "audio out" from the TV to the "audio in"on the home theatre system to provide the option of TV sound through the home theatre system.

Set up the Panasonic SC-PT450 and followed all the various instructions. Am using the surround sound in conjunction with a Panasonic TV bought at same time (50" plasma) but can't seem to get sound out...


Are you sure you're using a source material that is surround sound? Most TV broadcasts are still only stereo.

Also with surround programmes, the rear speakers are only used for the surround effect so will only make sound when the sound source is supposed to be behind you.

http://www.altex.com/product_info.php?products_id=9207 here is a link to a audio / video switch box you need one of these make sure it has several audio video in and at least one audio/video out
hook all you rca1.gif cables up to the audio/video in from the cable box, tv, and dvd/vcr combo then out to the surround sound youll also need to get some rca cable splitters for the out so you can run it back to the audio/video in to the tv as well as the surround sound here is alink to what they look like
http://www.altex.com/product_info.php?cPath=344&products_id=6201
youll need thre of these of course when hooking it up dont pay attention to the color on these just the ones from the tv and surround sound and thats it your done it will all work if you want it to were you dont have to get up and push a button everytime most of them if you push all the buttons in at one time theyll stay like that
