Hi,

Hope this helps,

you need to press system menu on the remote..

on the front panel display acually on the DAV unit "DEC. MODE" appears..

Press enter..

Press the up and down buttons to cycle through the options, what your looking for is "PRO LOGIC", "PLII MOVIE" and "PLII MUSIC" ..

Select one of these and this should work.



All the best

Hey there,

A large quantity of the movies out there are in a 5.1 format (some even 6.1, or 7.1) Which utilizes all 5 of your speakers plus the Subwoofer...

The TV on the other hand (Cable, Antenna, Satellite), is usually just Stereo (Front Left + Right), Unless of course the TV Program specifies that 5.1 Audio is available.

Bought a LG Blu ray DVD Home theater system last weekend and set up with LG lcd tv and has been working fine till today. We had the radio on and I turned the TV on and the two rear speakers do not work...


Hello,
In a surround sound system, the correct way to listen to music is in stereo mode which will play out of your left and right channels and your subwoofer. When viewing a movie with surround sound, then you should use your rear speakers. The key element to remember is that rear speakers are only intended to play your sound effects, and will not play full range audio. Thats what your fronts and center are for. If you simply want to override this, than you will need to select the direct sound field on your receiver and than it will send full range audio to all speakers connected. Most likely, its not going to sound that good. If you dont know what each sound field does, here is a list and function of the most commonly used ones.
Stereo-Front Left and Right speakers including subwoofer
Dolby Digital or PLII Movie-these are the bost options for your surround sound
Direct-All speakers connected get full range signal
Good Luck

Dvd confusion


*On your surround sound system is there a source or device button? if so you will be able to match the sound with the device you are watching.

On your TV / remote there should be an Input or vVdeo or TV, DVD, AUX buttons. Select the device you would like to view and this should resolve your viewing issues.

I hope you find this solution helpful.

No sound when using dish or regular tv


This may be old news but just in case ...

Typically you need to consider the surround system as the central point for sound distribution (and in newer receivers, the distribution point for video signal as well). So you need to think of your TV and Satellite as sound sources and connect them to the IN side of your surround sound system. From the back of your TV then, look for the Audio OUT (commonly Red for right and White (or black) for Left. Connect these to the IN on the back of the surround system. Likewise for your satellite box. Then make sure you select the appropriate source on the surround system. If the system supports the video signal, you can route that as well. Beware that you'll need some sort of simulation (provided by the Phillips unit) to upconvert stereo to surround ... check the manual online. If you post model numbers for the Phillips and satellite units, we might be able to direct you more specifically (provided we can find manuals online)

4 speakers with games


For the rear surround speakers to work, the sound must be encoded in surround sound, and most games, if any, are not. The amp doesn't 'see' and information encoded in the sound signal for the rear speakers, therefore you get no sound.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice.
Thank you, and good luck!!

Surround sound from Sky +


To upmix 2-channel sound (such as that in a TV broadcast) into 5.1 sound, press AMP and then SUR. DECODE until "PL II Movie" is displayed. This will give you "cinema-like" surround sound from a 2-channel source.

You can also assign this to one of your "Scenes" by following the procedure for scene assignment on page 26 of your manual.
