Run a phono cable from the tv output to a input on your system,select this input and you should have sound,if not go to tv menu for sound set up as some tv,s need the output turned up or even to be switched on.
hope this helps.

Why won't my left speaker work on the acoustic solutions surround sound


Check that all wires are making good connections. Unplug them all and then replug them. Worst case scenario, could be a bad output transistor or other internal electronic component.

I just bought a Yamaha 5.1 system with rcvr RX-V365 i have HDMI to tv then HDMI to RCVR then another HDMI to DTV. Problem cant seem to get picture AND sound together through RCVR. depending on what setting...


RX-V365 doesn't support sound over HDMI. It can switch the video+audio from HDMI in to HDMI out, but can't play the sound through the speakers. You need to connect the audio separately via optical or coax digital cable.

Cant get 5.1 surround sound to work through tv


Your TV must have an audio out, or at least an earphone jack, to connect it to any external speakers. There's no way around that. But it's easy for a technician to install an audio output in any TV, shouldn't cost more than the standard bench charge plus a few dollars for parts.
One hour's labor is all it takes. More likely, you have a handy friend who can do it a lot cheaper.

Sound problem


Hi,

I have a creative SoundBlaster LIVE! 24 Bit External Sound Card and this annoyed me for weeks.

depending on your surround sound reciever depends on the solution.

i have an Acoustic Solutions surround sound system with coxial and optical inputs, aswell as stereo red & white jack inputs.

not knowing the method or connection your using makes it difficult to give you a single solution so i'll list a few.

The soundblaster software shoudl include the Creative Audio console with all sorts of effects, one is CMSS (CMSS-3D) Stereo widening which is still stereo but gives a surround sound effect.. but i'm guessing you payed for 5.1 and you want 5.1 onto the next part

5.1 surround sound can only be produced when the actuall audio your playing contains 5 channels of audio, for example you cant play a stereo song in 5.1 surround sound without some sort of hardware or software sound manipulation. Luckily my surround sound system has Pro Logic II built in and some other effects which convert a 2.1 signal to a 5.1 signal and it works brilliantly. I'm not sure of a software alternative.

setup for your soundcard will be different under XP and Vista also, but there should be a properties option for your sound device where you can select your speaker setup such as headphones, built in speakers, 2.1 speakers, 5.1 speakers, 7.1 speakers and you should be able to manage this from the creative software.

If using Coxial / Optical or SPDIF under vista you MUST set the playback device as SPDIF, at least you have to with my sound card and drivers and seems to be a limitation of the actual sound card drivers for vista.

Personally i was looking forward to hearing the windows login melody in 5.1 surround sound too, but this doesnt happen.

Infact i find that almost all programs bar a few will not play Dolby Digital or DTS 5.1 surround sound via any or my output options hence the next solution..

if you have the 5.1 sound but winamp simply just plays it in stereo try the following.

You need to use DirectSound Output:

Preferences (Ctrl-P) > Plug-ins > Output > Select "DirectSound Output"

That should work in most cases, but if not, then:

Checkmark: "Allow hardware acceleration" in DirectSound Output config,
and make sure your sound card/chip is selected as Output Device.

Note that any changes will take effect only after playback is restarted.
In some cases, a Winamp restart is required.

If that doesn't work make sure you have the latest version of DirectX
(v8.x or higher is required)

Winamp 5.25/5.3 and higher:
For actual multi-channel files (ie. aac/wav/ac3/ogg/wma files encoded in 5.1ch surround, as opposed to standard 2-channel stereo mp3's), you need to checkmark "Allow surround sound" in 'Winamp > Prefs > Playback' for the music to play in its original 5.1 channel format (Note that this setting is checkmarked by default).

Windows Vista:
In addition to the above instructions, Vista users will also need to go to:
Control Panel > Sound > Playback tab > Speakers > Configure:
Select: 5.1/7.1 Surround.
Then:
Control Panel > Sound > Playback tab > Speakers > Properties > Enhancements tab
and checkmark "Speaker Fill"

Hope this helps

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)

Problem with surround sound through ty


Could be that your TV doesn't output a 5.1 signal? Do you have a HD sky box? If so, take the audio out from then into your surround system.
