Question about Philips MX6050D System

1 Answer

I want to hook up my blue-ray to the phillips MX6050D and listen in surround sound but it doesn't have a fiber-optic optical output (or something like that) and best buy geek squad says it won't work. can i hook the fiber optic cable up to my hd tv and then to my cable reciever, and then hook up regular sound cables (white and red ones) from the cable box to the MX6050D? if i hook up the blue ray to the phillips will this all work? i know it sounds convoluted but i really don't want to buy another reciever.

Forget about the optical output and connect your Blu-Ray player directly to the appropriate input on the rear of your receiver.

You can go to a place like Best Buy or an eectronics store and get a cord that converts an optical audio out cable into two red and white cables.

I just bought a LG blue tooth capable surround sound. The instructions say I need to hook the cord to the optical in connection, but my tv doesn't have it. Is there an adapter I can get?


If your tv does not have an optical audio output you can get an analog to optical adaptor. Radio shack . Ebay , do a google search. Check your sound bar for an analog input. Hope this helps.

How to set up my rca blue ray to my 50


You should find a Phono output on the back of the TV. Some even have a Digital Optical output as well. Depending what inputs your surround system has you should be able to hook it up to one or the other.

Does it support surround sound


Well not buit in, but it has a 92 KHz/16bit Audio DAC/96KHz/24bit decoder and coaxial digital audio output. So to get surround sound you need to connect the DVD player to your home theater receiver using the Digital coaxial/optical output connector (i.e. fiber Optic). Your home theater has to be equipped with the same type of input and you could enjoy your DVDs in surround sound soon.


Note: the optical inputs and outputs are generally capped when not in use and you will need to remove the the cap to be able to plugin your cable.






Good luck and please don't forget your thumbs-up to help me help you further. ty !

How do I connect my DISH, TV and Blu-ray. Right now I have my DISH satelite HD cable connected to the TV, and a HD cable connected from my TV to the Blu-Ray. The problem i'm having is the sorround sound...


hi,
Is there is any optical digital output in your satelite HD. Then connect that optical digital output of satelite HD to the optical digital input of your surround system (blue ray player) using an optical cable.
Then press the function button on the remote of surround sound system (blue ray player) and select D.IN. (D.IN means DIGITAL IN). You will get the audio through the surround sound system. if you need any more assistance fell free to contact me through fixya.
ok

I want surround sound. How do I hook up my audio 5.1 RVC-884VBK, with my HDbox and LCD TV? It's too confusing. What hooks to what? Currently the HD box and blueray DVD is hooked straight to TV ...


Does you television have an "Optical Audio Output"? This would be the best and easiest way to get surround sound from your system. If your TV has an optical output the you can use an Optical Cable to connect the TV to the reciver. This way whatever you are watching from the TV will be in surround sound. The HDMI connection sends a surround sound signal from each device to the television. If you connect it to this output on the TV then make sure the optical output is turned on in you telivison's menu. If your TV does not have an Optical Audio Output then you will need to connect each optical output from the blu-ray and HDbox to your reciever. Your reciever will need to have two Input channels(one for each device). Then you can select that input to the device(blu-ray or HDbox) that you are using. The optical cable is the best way to go for surround sound because it is pure digital and produces the best sound. If the HDbox or Blu-Ray does not have an optical output then you will need the six rca jacks to get the surround sound. Let me know further info on what you have so I can assist you more.

Surround sound on ps3


Most digital inputs are assignable, so go to set-up menu on your receiver and make sure the optical port (opt1 , opt2, etc.) is assigned to the input (vcr, aux, etc.) that you want switch to to listen to the PS3. You may also need to go into the PS3 settings menu and turn the optical to output the Dolby Digital signal. You have to do this with most DVD players, too.

I bought a insignia plasma tv and a panasonic surround sound with blue ray. Both were open box and no manuel. I hooked up the surround sound and it works good with the blue ray. I can not get it to work...


Basically, you have to use the output audio from the TV to go to the receiver.
On the TV, there should be a red and white audio output jacks for left and right. Or, if the TV has it, the best audio output to use for surround sound is optical output. You'll have to buy a optical cable for this.

I have no surround sound when watching normal T.V


Hi there, in order to listen to t.v you need to purchase an optical cable and plug this in the optical out of the tv to the optical in on the blue ray then select D.IN.1 on the blue ray and press mode on the remote until it says matrix . This will allow you to listen to the t.v through all speakers. hope this helps. Also remember to take the rubber protectors off the ends of the optical cable, a lot of people forget this :)

I hooked up a fiber optic cable directly from a samsung hdtv to my onkyo surround sound system. Sound, however, does not come out of the speakers. Also, I am running cable directly to the tv from the wall...


Make sure that the place it is plugged into the TV is an output and not an input for the fiber optic cable, and the place it is plugged into the Onkyo is an input and an output for the fiber optic cable. This can be connected backwards very easy. Then you want to make sure that the Onkyo is properly set on the right function to listen to the TV. Check your owners manual on how to set up the optical input and have it assigned to the function you are trying to use. Sometimes these type of receivers have an input mode button that you can set to "optical" or "analog" or "digital" or "auto". Try changing those settings after you make sure the TV optical is an "OUTPUT" and the optical on the Onkyo is a "INPUT".

After you have these thing set right you should be able to listen to it like this.

I hope this helps, if you need more help just reply back on this post, but please give more detail about the connectors and on the TV and the Onkyo, and about the digital input settings on the Onkyo. It would also help to know the model numbers of both the TV and the receiver. There is no way to check out what each of your devices are capable of doing without knowing the model numbers to look up the specs.

Thanks,

Dave

Connect PS3 for playing/viewing blue-ray thru surround sound


Connect the PS3 to your TV with the hdmi cable and to the surround sound system with a digital optical cable, then set your PS3 to output sound through the optical port (through the sound options menu) and you're good to go!
