    low volume

  • rand18 May 23, 2008

    Similar issue: I have an optical audio cable from TV to entertainment system, and cannot hear audio through entertainment system. I have cycled through the various unputs on the entertainment system, it appears TV/AUDIO is the right input, yet no audio. I've tried to find an audio output setting on the TV (a Bravia), thinking I might have to set the TV to output audio through that port, but unsuccessful.

    are you using standard AV connection which is (red, yellow and white) cable connectors or component video, which is (red, blue and green) cable connectors or are you using digital/optical.

The color of the connectors is not as important as where they are plugged in. I have tried all possible connections

Why does disc tray open randomly Samsung ht-em54c


I had the problem of the disk tray opening and closing randomly but finally fixed it. I went thru a number of steps so I don't know which combination or individual step fixed it but I think it was changing the HDMI cable from the TV to the Blu ray player that finally fixed the problem. Previous to that I had removed the disk player and got the audio to work with only the TV and used one of the HDMI inputs as the output from my PC. That way I could play DVDs on my PC and run it thru the player to get audio in the speakers and video on the TV. Every once in a while the tray would try to eject (even though the player was not there). Finally I changed the HDMI cable to an older cable, the one between the TV and the player and it started working! I then put the disk player back in the unit and it all worked, everything!! Good luck!

LG blue ray won't play sound from RCA sound bar. HDMI cable is hooked into HDMi slot on TV


the details you provided were very vague, however from my experience when a device is connected to another device via and audio capable hdmi cable, that device renders it audio output to the device its connected to and normally turn off all other audio outputs beside optical- I would assume there is an option in the blue ray player to turn off hdmi audio, which will in turn activate other audio outputs- you may also look for audio out port on your tv, it is ideal to connect the sound bar directly to the tv set audio out ports. To sum this up,
if you plan to use your player via hdmi cable you need to turn off hdmi audio output on the blue ray player and the plug an audio cable from your blue-ray player to your sound bar
you may also as i said connect your sound bar directly to your tv, the issue is most tv sets now a days do not have an audio out port, if you do then everything you play thru your tv will have audio via sound bar
there are several way to go here but unless your sound bar has hdmi av switching capabilities (im sure not) this is one of the most simple--Good Luck.

I want to connect the home theater system (Sony DZ-810) with Sony LCD TV and also with receiver of the satellite also with Xbox and I want the home theater works as the speakers of the TV without...


Hi,here is my simple solution...
If you want to listen your TV on your Stereo system thru your receiver,
** you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" of your TV
** to "AUX input " or "TV" OR "Any input" of your receiver ( except Phone ) or "Optic Cable input"
** than just switch to respective mode on RECEIVER corresponding your RCA or Optic connection...
There you go..Your TV sound is on the Receiver..By this means whatever you watch on the
TV (
tuner, satellite , Xbox ) ,it's sound will come thru your stereo..

Hope this helps!
Take care and please

Think about where you TV audio originates. Unless you have an antenna on your TV, everything IT hears comes from an external audio device like a cable/sat box which almost certainly has a digital audio output and/or HDMI.

I would recommend you carefully utilize your limited connections this way:

Using Page 10 as a guide.

IF your TV has 2 HDMI's or one HDMI AND one Component input:

Cable box (Component Out and Analog Stereo RCA) or HDMI Out to corresponding TV In's if available.

Cable Box coaxial audio to the HTS (3). This way the best broadcast TV multichannel audio goes to the best electronics and speakers.

HTS HDMI Out (9) to TV Component In (if available), otherwise use Component Out (7). I recommend saving the highest quality video delivery path for your native BD because broadcast Hi-Def video is always bandwidth compromised while BD is the best video available today.

Composite Video Out (6) to Composite Video In on TV for HTS management functions.

You still have both Aux In (4) pairs).

How do you run your tv sound thru the unit


If your tv has an audio output, use that. If it doesn't, then you will have to use the audio out of the cable or satellite box.

Need a manual or relevant information


Yes.
It is possible as long as your HTS unit has an AUX in or AUDIO in port and your TV has an audio out connection. You can connect audio cables (be it red & white, optical or coaxial audio cables) so that the audio signal from your TV will pass through the HTS unit. All that's left for you to do is to set the HTS unit to the proper mode (eg. AUX)

Hope this helps!

Playing the sound of tv through the sound bars speakers


Not sure for the playstation etc, but for the TV the manual says using the (not included) optical link between TV and the main unit.

Note that this is not mentionned in all language versions of the manual.
