Watching T.V. with speakers

We set up our home theater system yesterday, and the speakers work great when we watch dvds, but they dont work when we watch T.V. We tried changing the settings, but I think it is a connection problem. We have a vizio HD LCD, and right now we have the cables connected to Component 1 on the TV and TV/video on the DVD player. Do we need to perhaps connect the Component wires (the Y, Pr, and Pb) to something on the T.V.?

Component 1 on the TV is probably an input, not an audio output. You need to find out if your TV has audio output jacks.
If I'm mistaken, and you are using audio output jacks from the TV, then you just need to press FUNCTION on your remote until the LCD display says "TV/VCR".

1. The easiest solution would be to connect a stereo RCA (red and white) cable to the audio output on the back of your TV.
2. Then connect the other end to the input on your home theater system.
3. Change the home theater system to the correct input.

Good luck!

The TV is NOT a primary audio source. If your cable box or whatever else you're watching has audio output I'd run that into the AUX, if it has one.

This reson you are not hearing any "TV AUDIO" through your RCA surround system would be due to your tv sound output not being connected to an audio input into your surround system. You can hear DVDs,CDs and radio possibly mp3 if connected, as these are built in to the amplifier which the speakers connect to.
If the tv has a Line out (via phono plugs) and NOT via headphone out, connect it to an audio input on the RCA surround system. If the RCA has no other available inputs, well....there ain't a lot you can do but watch CSI with the sound from the TV and then Star Wars (for example) through the TV and Surround system.

No voices when watching dvds


voices come out through the "center" speaker. Check that connection (both on the speaker and DVD player)

No vocals


All voice will come out of the centre speaker, check this by swapping with another speaker, and then in the menu check that it is 'on'

Not all the speakers are working despite ensuring the cables are


There is a button that says -Mix 2CH - make sure it does not say Mix 2CH ON, or you will only get 2 channels when watching DVDs. This Panasonic, as well as legions of other home theater systems, are more limited than they seem. The SC-HT500 can give you surround when watching DVD's on the unit, but you will not be able to get full surround for your TV, because the Panasonic does not have the right digital inputs.

No sound though home theater when watching tv


There is an orange button on the remote, half way down in the middle. I belive it has orange lettering and says something like "TV-?" press that, and the sound should start to come through your speaker system. You can then use the original remote that came with your TV and turn the sound off on the TV to use just the theatre system. I noticed that if you use the TV speakers in conjunction with the theatre system, that it echo's.

Sony Bravia Dav-HDX279W and comcast HDTV Cable box connection.


Like above, use an optical connection (need fiber optic cable) or a coaxial connection (single RCA cable). HDMI might also work, but I personally haven't checked. Connect the audio outs from the cable box to the audio ins on the home theater. The TV will only need a video connection from the cable box, as well as one from the home theater (for DVDs, onscreen menus).

This discussion can help you set up the universal remote.

Sounds like you have a loose cable. Check that the connection is really in well. If the problem continues I would get a new set of cables, especially if you are using the ones that came with the receiver or dvd player.
