Question about Panasonic Televison & Video

1 Answer

Set up the Panasonic SC-PT450 and followed all the various instructions. Am using the surround sound in conjunction with a Panasonic TV bought at same time (50" plasma) but can't seem to get sound out of the rear speakers except on "test". There must be a simple reason but I'm not seeing it, I can't figure that you need to setup every time you want to use the surround sound other than with a DVD. HELP

    Many thanks Kalm21, am going to check all the sources to see what works and doesn't, had poor response from previous LG surround sound and was never really convinced that I would be entirely satisfied but when you go shopping the retailers always seems to work "properly". Is the ony true surround sound avaiallbe for something like a BOSE system I wonder? I managed to adjust the rear speaker volume last night but you can't do this without going onto the DVD channel, how mich higher should the rear speakers volume be in comparison tot he front ones?
    Regards

    Ok, so the new TV is also freeview installed, would this mean then that as a source it wouldn't normally allow sound surround from say last nights football? I can appreciate that soaps and documentary type rogrammes may only have steroe in the audio part of the broadcast, but all films (modern) and sports shold, shouldn't they?
    There is a distinct "change" in the audio when it is from the TV only compared to the DVD/SS sysystem, but how do you know when a programme is, or isn't broadcast witht SS?

Are you sure you're using a source material that is surround sound? Most TV broadcasts are still only stereo.

Also with surround programmes, the rear speakers are only used for the surround effect so will only make sound when the sound source is supposed to be behind you.

    The relative volumes of the speakers should all be the same for your main listening position so if you're near the rear speakers they should be turned down, if you're nearer to the front they should be turned up. It should sound like all the speakers are the same volume when in test mode.


  • Andrew Real Jun 26, 2008

    Alot of the soaps and sports programmes will have surround sound, listen out for things like crowd noise in the stadium or a car driving off behind the camera.

    There is a slight difference between the surround sound you get from DVD and that from broadcast. DVD carries 5.1 sound or Dolby Digital, this sends a sepperate signal to each of the speakers. The rear speakers opperate in a stereo mode with left and right seperation.

    Broadcast surround is usually Dolby Pro Logic. Pro Logic decodes a stereo signal into a 4 channel signal, The rear speakers both carry the same signal so there is no left and right seperation. Its a minor difference though and shouldn't really be very noticable.

    Hope this helps,

    Andy

Panasonic TV does not play through surround speakers


so it is a connections problem I think. Check if video and audio cables are properly connected. Use color codes as your guide. Also from menu check if all settings are ok. Good luck

We bought a new Panasonic high definition TV TC-L42D2 and we are unable to see a picture when we try to play a DVD on our Panasonic SC-HT650 System. We only get audio on the DVD. We are sure we have the...


So what's different? The TV. Anything else like the video type (s-video, composite, component)?

Perhaps if you described what cable is carrying video and the point-to-point connection to the TC-L42D2 we'd understand what isn't working.

Hello

According to panasonic they dont make a pt450 but they do make a 480, so I assume this will get you close enough.

Blu ray connect to my sc-pt660


as far as hooking up your blu ray player to the sc-pt660, the only real way to utilize the surround sound (with true surround sound) is through the optical audio out. You need to connect your blu ray player through hdmi to your tv and then connect your blu ray player to your surround sound using the optical audio out/in. I, personally have the sc-pt660 hooked up through component cables so I don't waste an HDMI input on my TV. Except for cd's, there is no reason for you to use the actual dvd player part of the surround sound considering you have a blu ray player. In conclusion, hooking your blu ray player and the sc-pt660 up to get better video simply isnt possible (your blu ray player alone gives the best possible resolution, 1080p). As far as audio goes, run an optical audio cable from your blu ray player to your sc-pt660 to get true surround sound.

Sound Quality


Preferential Quality Connections in order of higher quality are: 1st>HDMI, 2nd>DVI, 3rd>Component/S-Video, 4th>Composite Video. Make sure you only use the surround setting on 1 of the 2 components, which ever is of better quality. If you use them both it WILL sound like mud. (older receiver-newer tv>probably tv) but you must connect all tv audio channel outputs to receiver. (newer receiver-older tv>receiver would be better)
Receivers also tend to have more wattage to drive larger speaker loads than most TVs. The key is to turn off the surround and SRS functions on the TV if you use the surround decoders on the receiver. Either way you use it, make sure you use the set-up feature to balance the outputs of the various channels for either source (the levels of the two will probably be very different).

Panasonic SC-HT1500 System Problem


You have U99 error due to TV GUIDE. Follow manual instruction for new set up, use bogus ZIP 00000 instead of real one, and you will be fine.
You will not have TV Guide working, but you will be able to set up manual timer recording without problem. I used to have that problem since the first day I bought this unit at the end of 2005. Having something "free" is usually not for free.
