I think it depends on what software you are using to play the 5.1... VLC lets you, PowerDVD and WinDVD also do there my be some tweaking needed to get them to sound good though.

Why doesn't the ARC TV sound work through the HDMI cable? Is it because the KDL-52XBR7 only has the Bravia Sync and no ARC support?

Getting tv sound from home theater speakers


Connect your sound from the cable box out to the JVC theater audio in jacks. This will give you sound through the speakers.

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

How do you connect the speakers on to your flat tv. I read it on the manual that u have to use HDMI, but i did. It still won't work.


This model has speakers. If you are trying to connect external speakers i.e. a home theater system, receiver or a sound bar you have a couple options.

This television only has hdmi inputs so you cannot connect the external speakers with hdmi cables. The television would have to have and hdmi output.

Now in order to use hdmi you would have to connect all your devices to the home theater and then go hdmi out from the home theater to one of the two hdmi inputs on this television. Then you would leave the television on that hdmi input at all times and switch devices with the home theater remote.
All the devices would be connected from their respective outputs to a respective input on the home theater.

Another option is to connect a fiber optic cable from the television to the home theater.

Another option would allow for stereo sound but not the higher quality surround sound. You can connect from your televisions red and white RCA outputs to the RCA input on the home theater.

How do you attach an x-box to the yamaha natural sound home theater system dvr s200??


Hi,

You need to use an optical cable to connect your xbox to your home theater system.
This can be done 2 ways

1) You can connect the optical cable directly from the xbox to the home theater system.

2) You can also connect your xbox to your TV by HDMI and then connect your TV by optical cable to your home theater system.

This has the added benefit of all the devices that use your TV being able to use the home theater system in the same way the xbox is using it.

Gurus, I just bought Samsung Home Theater System which i connected to my Hitachi TV with HDMI cable. I have a Optical Cable going from HT to my TV Optical port. I have another connection from my cable


On the remote control for the Samsung Home Theater System look at the bottom left to a button that says "MODE", those moods change the sound each speaker gives off. if that doesn't work, you might need new wiring because there are other wires that are more durable than the ones that come with it, much better too.

Panasonic 1080p Plasma TH-42PZ80U Home Theater Setup Question


Hey Gamer1827,

While I personally can't provide you with any model-specific home theater system recommendations, there are a couple of common ways that you can generally configure your home theater.

Connecting several devices directly to the HTIB system may typically allow you to minimize the number of remote controls necessary, as long as the HTIB system supports the use of a universal remote. Should you not necessarily care if you have to change back-and-forth between two remotes however, you may have a wider variety of possible configurations available.

In order to use only HDMI cable connections to set up your home theater, you most likely would need an HTIB system with three HDMI ports: one for your TV, one for your PS3 and one for your cable box. Each device would require a separate HDMI cable running between it and the receiver. This option (in theory) would allow you to use one universal remote to control each device, assuming that they are all compatible with the same remote.

Another common configuration you might wish to try requires you to connect your cable box and PS3 directly to your TV. By doing so however, you might limit yourself to using an optical digital audio cable to make the connection between your TV and many HTIB systems. In this configuration, the cable box and PS3 would again have their own separate HDMI cables, while the optical digital audio cable would need to be run from the Digital Audio-Out port on the back of your TV to the Digital Audio-In port on the receiver. This option essentially treats the HTIB system as an expansion device, instead of the center of your home theater configuration.

Should you need any additional information or suggestions, remember that you may always speak with a sales representative at your local Best Buy™ store for further assistance.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
