I connected an HDMI line from my receiver to input 5 and only video came through. I then tested by taking my iPod and outputting the sound via stereo to my tv and it still didn't work on input 5. I did the same thing to input 2 and the sound came through fine. If it was HDMI or stereo, I would think it's the connector, but sound not working via either method means something's up with the tv on that particular input line since it works on the other input. Any thoughts?

Re: Input 5 not playing audio via HDMI or stereo
HDMI can be problematic. Follow these steps in order for the best success with HDMI.
1) With all devices off, turn the TV/monitor on first and wait for it to come on.
2) Select the HDMI input.
3) Turn on the next HDMI device (stereo amp if it comes before the video device, or the video device itself and let it come on.
4) Play the video.
Some video devices may need the audio output to be set to PCM or 48k/96k datastream to work correctly.
If this doesn't help, you may have a compatibility issue with your HDMI device. Usually it is the fault of the player/video receiver and rarely the display/TV. All the TV/monitor does is query the source device as to what type it is and the resolutions it's supports.

You may have the wrong input source selected. There are a number of different source connections on the back of today's TV sets. Using the remote's SOURCE button, cycle through the different inputs until you find the one that your input device is attached to. It is common for users to inadvertently cycle off the correct input when pushing remote buttons.
Hi,Even though you have done some cabling already,for the sake of correct connection I describe all the possible cabling alternatives to you..You can select whichever you want.. TO WATCH DVD ON THE TV: ** Receiver's "AUDIO and VIDEO OUTPUT as " 2xRCA Audio+1x Video " or "Optic Cable OUTPUT or " HDMI Output " of your Home Theater Receiver (whichever you want ,based on the existing sockets and necessary cables on your hand ) **
AT TV side : you need to connect "Audio+ Video input s " as can either be : 3xRCA jacks or
"Optic cable input " or HDMI IN connector of your TV , ** than just switch to
DVD mode on Receiver and play DVD *You can use "HDMI" connections as well but sometimes HDMI creates problem on Audio.. TO LISTEN YOUR TV ON SURROUND SYS. **
AT TV side : you need to connect "Audio Output " as can either be : 2xRCA jacks or
"Optic cable output" or HDMI connector of your TV , ** to Receiver's "TV input "or "AUX input" or "Optic Cable input" or HDMI of your Home Theater Receiver (whichever you want ,based on the existing sockets and necessary
cables on your hand ) ** than just switch to
respective SOURCE mode on Receiver corresponding the connector you have used on the back of Receiver .. *You can use "HDMI" connections as well but sometimes HDMI creates problem on Audio..
Pls remember.."IN " goes to "OUT" or vice versa..all the times..
There you go..Both Tv and DVD sound are on the Receiver as SURROUNDING SOUND.By this means ,whatever you watch on the TV will come thru your Receiver's SURROUNDING SOUND speakers as well.
Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know. Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :)
Depends on your TV, surround system, and the provided connections.
The most common with a decent LCD TV is connected all the input devices (DVD, Wii, etc) to the TV via their respective connections. Run the audio from the TV to the receiver via HDMI or SPDIF or other audio out line on your TV. Set TV to output audio through that line always and you are done.
Quality audio receivers will have a panel where you connect everything to it, then connect the TV to it via HDMI. It will play the audio and send the video signal via HDMI in what is called a pass through. This will only be an option on quality, mid to high end audio receivers.
In either case, reading the manual for the receiver will tell you how to do this.
Do you mean the power switch does not shut it off, or do you mean it does not show the signal you want it to show?
I can't help you over it not turning off, but if you are not seeing the signal, it may be because the TV has various alternate inputs, and has to be switched between which one you want to show, such as:
2 x HDMI input ( 19 pin HDMI Type A ) - rear 1 x VGA input ( 15 pin HD
D-Sub (HD-15) ) - rear 2 x
S-Video input ( 4 pin mini-DIN ) - rear 1 x audio line-in ( mini-phone
stereo 3.5 mm ) - rear 5 x audio line-in ( RCA phono x 2 ) - rear 2
x component video input ( RCA phono x 3 ) - rear 2 x composite video
input ( RCA phono ) - rear
Try using the on screen menu to bring up a choice over which input to show. Switch it to the one you have connected to it.
This is how AUDIO works in HDMI setup, you can select the source to send the digital audio along with the digital video through HDMI, the receiving end HDMI sound setup must be set to receive the digital audio through HDMI. Otherwise the audio may be sent and received through analog audio ports (Red (Right channel) and White (Left channel) RCA jacks) in stead. Most of the new TV and DVD player use auto detection.
So please check the HDMI audio setup to see how the audio signals are set to be processed.
here are the only signal inputs located at the back of the tv. 1 x HDMI input ( 19 pin HDMI Type A )
2 x component video input ( RCA phono x 3 )
1 x VGA input ( 15 pin HD D-Sub (HD-15) )
Audio line-in ( RCA phono x 2 )
2 x S-Video input ( 4 pin mini-DIN )
2 x composite video/audio input ( RCA phono x 3 )
1 x headphones ( mini-phone stereo 3.5 mm )
1 x SPDIF output ( TOS Link )
1 x audio line-out ( RCA phono x 2 )
1 x subwoofer output ( RCA phono )
1 x serial
If you are looking for a coaxial cable input.. it is actually not available so you have to connect a converter from coax cable to RCA cable for you to connect it on your tv.
Here is the list from the spec. sheet of all of the connections available on your TV
1.0 x HDMI ( RCA phono x 3 ) - Rear , 1.0 x Composite video/audio output ( RCA phono x 3 ) - Rear , 1.0 x VGA input ( RCA phono x 2 ) - Rear , 1.0 x Remote control ( 4 pin mini-DIN ) - Rear , 1.0 x S-Video input ( 19 pin HDMI Type A ) - Rear , 1.0 x Serial ( 4 pin mini-DIN ) - Rear , 1.0 x Composite video/audio input ( RCA phono x 3 ) - Rear , 2.0 x Composite video/audio input ( Mini-phone stereo 3.5 mm ) - Side , 1.0 x Audio line-in ( 15 pin HD D-Sub (HD-15) ) - Rear , 1.0 x S-Video input ( RCA phono x 3 ) - Side , 1.0 x Audio line-in ( TOSLINK ) - Rear , 2.0 x Digital audio output (optical) ( 9 pin D-Sub ) - Rear , 1.0 x HD component input - Rear
Hi. You could look up reviews. I personally usually never offer advice on choices, because what I like, may not be what you like..its a matter of personal preference. But in this particular case, I'd go for Panasonic. Why? Better features, better service, easier availability of parts, and better resolution.Plus some nice features. If this answers your question, PLEASE don't forget to rate as fixed. I'd really appreciate it. Enjoy your new tube!!!
