It is possible that one or more cables were damaged or are defective. You will will have to test everything with an independent set of cables, and substitute to find the defective ones. This also included testing the selector box.

Hissing and Humming when trying to use the speakers for the tv


The sony manual tells you how to connect to a TV however most of us now watch TV connected to a SKY box. The Scart lead needs to be connected to the Sky box for the sound to work correctly. Ignore the Manual and connect the Scart lead from the DVD Unit directly into you're sky box. It works fine.

Popping noise through speaker when changing channel on sky hd


What make is your HD Box and TV? Assume you are connecting direct to your TV using HDMI, and not though an amp? If you do have an amp, you'll need an optical from HD box to amp to get DD 5.1, and connect your HD box to TV with the HDMI. Have you disconnected any scart connections from the HD box to TV - no longer required unless you really want to watch SD over the scart? Check that the Audio Output in the Sound settings for you HD box is set to Stereo.
Does your TV have individual audio and picture settings for the input source - perhaps you need to tweak these for the HDMI input being used. Do you have another HDMI cable you can use to eliminate a possible dud?

Cant get my viera linked panasonic to play through surround sound


I had the same problem, so i contacted panasonic, I am including the email they sent me.


For connections of audio, so that you can hear all tv audio through the
surround system, connect either an optical audio cable or red & white
analog audio cables from the tv to the home theater. If you are using
optical audio, there is a plug on back of tv labeled for digital audio
output and an input on the surround sound system. If you plan on using
analog red and white, use the PROG OUT red and white output jacks on the
back of the tv to the AUX input on the home theater.

For video connections, to get HD you will need to be using either HDMI or
Component cables. HDMI is the cable that will provided 1080p signal (the
best HD signal), but if the source does not output 1080p, then your tv
will not display 1080p. Most cable boxes output at 1080i or 720p when on
HD stations. This signal still provides great picture quality, but HDMI is
not needed to get these HD signals. You can use component cables for your
cable box and the DVD player output to the tv for video. HDMI might give
you a slightly better picture quality but the signal will be the same.

To make the connection, you will want to connect from the cable box to the
tv (component or hdmi). Also from the home theater system to the tv using
hdmi or the video cables from component (red, blue, & green cables).

We hope this information is helpful to you.

Thank You,

No picture on TV through Sky, Home Cinema is on but have sound.


do have sound and picture at same time you will need a fibre optical cable, you connect that from your cinema system to your tv. then you need to set your cinema system to digital input or fibre optic or check by pressing aux on your remote and see which is the right one. i am not familier with panasonic as i have samasung.

The HDMI lead only carries the video and audio from the HTS6510/05 to the TV.

The scart carries audio and video both ways.

Re-connect the scart lead and all will be ok.

N.B. When the HTS6510 is switched on, the TV will auto-switch to the scart input. You will then need to switch the TV to HDMI to get the benefit from the DVD upscaling.

Tv sound on home theater kit


Hi Every one.

Had same problem with my HDMI connection on my sony bravia and sony theatre system, resolved by conecting a scart lead from the theatre system to one of the free scart sockets on the back of the TV, leave your HDMI connection in place as the DVD signal comes from this,

hope this helps!

Most likley your scart cable is the culprit, check whether the scart cable is the AV I/O type. And also better check the audio settings of the DVD player. Hope u hook up the speakers correctly. Cheers, Rifaa
