Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

I have a Zenith Pro Logic Surround system Model #Z711B. I do not have the instructions. I have hooked up the speakers and the audio in/out to the tv, not to my direct tv box. I get a huge boom of feedback with or w/o the audio plugged in. I am not sure what to do.

    if you are getting feedback you are hooking it up wrong. you should not be hooking up output from the zenith to your direct TV box. Only the output from the Direct TV to the Zenith Z711B should be connected. (yes this is an old thread but the correct answer was never given)

The center speaker shouldn't be on the surround outputs it should be on the Center output. The surround outputs are for the rear speakers.

SOURCE: yamaha reciever rx-v363

Thats because if you look in the owner's manual, it declares the fact that it will only broadcast sound from hdmi to monitor not speakers. For sound out of speakers need to connect additional audio cable.

SOURCE: Sony surround sound hookup

In short, the answer is: Hook up all three to each other. I have a Samsung DLP HDTV, and I was trying to hook up a Sony DAV-HDX500 home-theater system and a Comcast HD set-top box, but I found that the Sony user guide is helpful only for setting up the speakers. Most of what it had to say about HDMI and getting the TV sound or cable sound to go through the speaker system was wrong (or, at least, it didn't work for me). So, here's what I did. I connected Component video cables (Y/Pb/Pr out) from the Cable box to the TV (Y/Pb/Pr in), audio cables from the Cable box (audio out) to the Sony system ("SAT/Cable" audio in), and an HDMI cable from the Sony system (HDMI out) to the TV (HDMI in). This allows me to 1) watch DVDs with surround sound through the TV's HDMI source (when the "DVD" format is selected on the Sony system), 2) watch cable with surround sound through the TV's Component source (when the "SAT/Cable" format is selected on the Sony system), and 3) watch cable WITHOUT the surround sound, as I did before I ever had the Sony system. One item of note: When watching a non-HD channel with the surrond sound on, the audio is slightly out of synch with the video; thankfully, there's no such problem on HD channels. Anyway, I hope this helps. It drove me crazy for two days straight!

Can you have just 2 channel by hooking up to right & left front speaker posts on 5.1 surround


short answer.....no. If you hook more than one speaker up to a single channel, it will lower the impedence and will damage the amp. You can hook up multiple speakers by using a speaker switch box between the speakers and the amp. This will match the impedence and should keep the amp from blowing.

We hooked it up and have no sound


From the Console Settings screen in the System area of the Xbox Dashboard, you can configure the video output of your Xbox 360 console for a widescreen, high-definition TV, determine your audio options, and check your console's serial number and Xbox Dashboard version.
Go to correct section for ... Audio

Change your audio output settings for games from this screen. These audio settings do not affect DVD movie playback. For DVD audio settings, refer to an individual DVD movie's setup screen.

Settings consist of:

  • Analog Output Settings: choose Mono to merge the left and right audio signals so that you can hear all sound through a connection to a monaural TV or monitor; choose Dolby Pro Logic II to listen in normal stereo (no audio surround receiver required) or to listen to Dolby Pro Logic or Dolby Pro Logic II soundtracks from compatible games or other media.

    Dolby Pro Logic consists of four channels of audio: front left/center/right and a monaural surround channel that is mirrored in each of your rear left/right speakers. Dolby Pro Logic II uses digital signal processing to generate 5.0 audio (front left/center/right, rear left/right) from any stereo (left/right) programming, whether from movies, music, or games. Unlike movies and music, however, games are specially encoded with Dolby Pro Logic II decoding in mind.

    To listen in either Dolby Pro Logic or Dolby Pro Logic II surround sound, you must connect your cable's left/right (white/red) RCA connectors to a compatible surround receiver. For more information, see our connection page for the cable you're using:
  • Digital Output Settings: configure this setting only if you'll be using the Toslink optical digital-audio output from a compatible Xbox 360 AV cable (optical digital-audio cable sold separately):


    The default digital-audio setting is Dolby Digital 5.1. If this is your preference, you do not have to make a selection from this screen.

The audio keeps going in and out and cuts off. Also I have other devices going into aux in but it doesn't show 5.1 surround it only shows the front L, Front R, and CT speakers in stereo. I want everything...


If you are playing a source that is Stereo such as FM Radio or a CD the sound will not use all 5.1 speakers unless you enable the correct Surround Mode. On the remote there is a button on the lower right of the remote that says SURROUND. You can toggle through the various surround modes with this button the mode you want is Dolby Pro Logic The Pro Logic mode uses the built-in circuit to steer the Left, Center, Right and Mono Surround channel audio signals and uses all five speakers to play both stereo and Dolby Pro Logic program source, such as TV and VCR. You can use this mode with any stereo program source (such as VCR/TV) to enjoy multi-channel sound experience.

How to hook up sharp dolby surround pro-logic model- HTDP3000 to my RCA tv I need to know exactly how to connect the wires from sharp surround sound to my RCA high definition tv


The source of your program will determine how you hook things up, and if you want to (if it's possible) route the video through the Sharp as well. Some systems have video switching, so you can run all sources through the system, and have a single video cable running to the TV.

If you are using a DVD player, typical Pro-Logic requires a red/white RCA cable from the DVD player to the amplifier unit. The video cable, either a 4-pin S-Video or a yellow composite cable, will run to the amplifier unit for switching purposes, or ditect to an input on the TV.

You can also run red/white RCAs fron the HDTV to an input on the Sharp. You likely have to set the TVs audio output to "fixed" or "external", which will disable the TVs speakers, while putting out sound to the Sharp.

Not getting true surround sound


The only way to get Dolby 5.1 audio out of the Xbox will be via fiber optic cable from the Xbox to a Dolby Digital amplifier - which will output a decoded 5.1 signal to a 6 channel amplifier and 5 speakers and one sub-woofer. I doubt the Logitech speaker system has a Dolby 5.1 decoder built in with the amplifier for under $100, but I can't say for sure. If the Logitech has a an optical (or TOSLink) input, connect it to the Xbox and follow the instructions below.

To configure your audio settings, follow these steps:
  1. Start the Xbox 360 console without a disc in the disc tray.
  2. In the System section of the Xbox Dashboard, select Console Settings.
  3. In the Console Settings area, select Audio.
  4. In the Audio Settings area, configure settings for analog output or digital output:
    • Analog output settings:
      • Dolby Pro Logic II: Select this setting for stereo systems or Dolby Pro Logic II-compatible systems.
      • Mono: Select this setting for systems that do not support stereo output. Note If you have connected to Xbox LIVE and downloaded any AutoUpdates, the Mono option will not be available.
    • Digital output settings:
      • Digital Stereo: Select this setting to use digital stereo output.
      • Dolby Digital 5.1: Select this setting to use Dolby Digital output.
      • Enable WMA Pro: Select this setting to enable WMA Pro pass-through if your receiver supports the WMA Pro format.
Note You must use one of the following cables to support digital output:
  • Xbox 360 Component HD AV Cable
  • VGA HD AV cable
  • S-video AV cable
  • Advanced SCART AV cable
  • Japanese HDAV D-connector AV cable

I've hooked up my LG 47" 1080p widescreen to a LG HE903PAW audio receiver / 5 disc dvd player with upscaling capabilities. I have tested the speaker system and everything's connected properly....


I was talking with LG on virtually the same problem. I have a samsung blu-ray player hooked up via HDMI. Even though the blu-ray is outputting 5.1, 6.1 or 7.1, the LG is only outputting 2 channel unless you switch to pro logic. LG states that this is a known problem and that you are to return the system to where you bought it for a replacement. Call the 1-800 number and they should give you the same answer.

Can not get 3 speakers on my samsung home theater to work!


There are a few settings that will just give you a stereo output. The first one is with the Pro Logic II. If you press the PLII Mode button on the remote it will go through a series of settings from MUSIC ➞ CINEMA ➞ PRO LOGIC ➞ MATRIX ➞STEREO ➞ MUSIC. Pro Logic setting will only produce sound from the front speakers and Stereo from the front speakers and the sub. Put it on Matrix for 5.1 surround sound.
Also for speaker settings follow the instructions below.
Signal outputs and frequency responses from the speakers will automatically be adjusted according to your speaker configuration and whether certain speakers are used or not.
In Stop mode, press the MENU button.
Press the Cursor down button to move to Audio and then press the ENTER button.
In the SPEAKER SETUP, press the ENTER button again.
Press the Cursor button to move to the desired speaker and then press the ENTER button.
For C, SL, and SR, each time the button is pressed, the mode switches alternately as follows : SMALL ➞ NONE.
For L and R, the mode is set to SMALL.
SMALL : Select this when using the speakers.
NONE : Select this when no speaker is connected.
Press the RETURN button to return to the previous level.
Press the EXIT button to exit the setup screen.
It also seems that with this system, if you are on 5.1 surround but your music source is only in stereo, you will only hear stereo.
