Question about Panasonic SC-HT930 System

7 Answers

Setting up Panasonic SC-HT930 to Cable Box & TV

I am trying to hook up this system to both my cable box and tv.

I can successfully hook up my Explorer 8300 cable box to my tv, but cannot figure out which connections to use to integrate everything together.

It had been set up successfully with a vcr in the middle, but not with just the three components (cable-930-TV).

The tv doesn't have component video, but does have S-video jack.

Please let me know if there are any diagrams or instructions I can use to get this done.

Thanks,
Bill

    The "system" is a Panasonic SC-HT930, and the TV is an RCA f35xxx series.

  • tejas_bill Jul 06, 2008

    I already tried the S-Video connection -- doesn't fix the problem.

    The problem is that there do not seem to be any "correct" video/audio jack combinations that work.

    I have scematics on my Explorer guide, but the Panasonic is not configured the way it says to hook up a home theater.

    Is there any way somebody can send diagrams?

    Thanks,
    Bill

    This is a duplicate solution to that which I already said did not work.

    Please note that the Explorer set up guide has diagrams for setting up just the cable box to the TV and setting up the cable box to the home theater (SC-HT930 in this case), to the TV.

    The Cable-to-TV set up shows a diagram with the Cable Box's AUDIO OUT and VIDEO connecting to the TV's AUDIO IN and VIDEO. That configuration works.

    The Cable-to-HT-to-TV set up shows a diagram with the Cable Box's AUDIO OUT and VIDEO connecting to the HT's AUDIO OUT and VIDEO OUT. Then it shows the HT's "second" AUDIO OUT and VIDEO OUT connecting to the TV's AUDIO IN and VIDEO.

    The problem lies in the fact that the SC-HT930 only has one VIDEO, plus an S-VIDEO. And it has the following AUDIO: AUX; VCR AUDIO IN; TV AUDIO IN; REC OUT. I have tried every combination of all the sets of AUDIO and VIDEO, but I cannot get this configuration to work.

    What I need is somebody to be able to look at schematics of the backs of these components (particularly the Explorer 8300 and Panasonic SC-HT930) and tell me which combination should work.

    Please use "anal retentive: detail, because solutions that are only a single phrase are useless - again, I HAVE TRIED using the S-VIDEO, because I know that it has to play in the ultimate solution.

    If this has to go through several layers before it gets to a "guru" then at least read the problem and following comments and provide something new.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    I just received five (5) duplicate emails with the same solution from the same guy.

    Sir, the link to the Panasonic Support website is where I originally went - where I found a link to your website.

    The Panasonic site also has a Service Finder, so I can take my components to a certified Panasonic tech.

    I was hoping to save the money on having to go there, but so far none of the proposed solutions have come close to resolving my dilemma.

    If I do not receive a viable solution from this site by COB Wednesday, I wish to cancel this service and go a different path.

    Thanks,
    Bill

  • tejas_bill Jul 09, 2008

    leetheduece finally provided me with the missing link - that is to connect both the Cable Box and the Home Theater to the TX's VIDEO feeds.

    At least Lee took the time to really offer several possible fixes - all other so-called-solutions amounted to thoughtless blobs that were of no help at all.

    Thanks to the web site, and particularly to Lee, as you did finally come up with a viable solution.

    But at the end of the day you have done what you said you would do, and that is very well appreciated.

    Thans again,
    Bill

Good Day,
All you need to do is run an S-video cable from the panasonic to S-video IN on the TV. As the audio from the dvd will come from the home theater there is no need to run any audio cables IN to the tv, but as an FYI s-video hence it name only carries a video signal audio has to be run separate. Once connected set your TV's input to S-video with the remote and you should be all set for viewing DVD's. However if you want to be able to listen to your TV's audio thru the home theater you will need to connect a set of red and white audio cords from the TV's OUTPUT to the INPUT of the home theater. Then set the hometheater to AUX1 input to get TV audio thru the home theater. Please post the make and model of your TV set, so I can see what input's and outputs it has to assit further.

    you will most likely want to go s-video out of your cable box right into your tv. and then hook up the audio from the cable box up to your system with the audio cables your using. Then just keep the tv on that input channel for the cable. and select the appropriate input on your audio system to listen to it.
    Thanks,
    Lee

    Lee A. Jul 08, 2008

    Ok from the way you described the step by step you said the out from you cable box goes to the out on the HT, that is wrong. You want the out from the cable box to go to the IN on the home theater system.
    Keep me posted. I know we can get the connections right if thats the only problem.
    Thanks,
    Lee


  • Lee A.
    Lee A. Jul 08, 2008

    You will want to plug the cable box into whatever IN(Input) that you want. Then you will turn on the HT to that specified input so if you put it in TV, then you choose TV and that will play that selected input.
    That should help,

    I have the same box and have hooked it up to my stereo system many times I am sure we can get this. You have the S-video out on your cable box that goes to the whatever S-Video IN that you want to use. If you need any further detail let me know.
    Thanks,
    Lee

  • Lee A.
    Lee A. Jul 08, 2008

    You will then go from the S-Video OUT on your HT, to the S-video IN on your tv, then you can just plug all of your components into the HT. Then select them and it all plays on the same S-Video Input channel on your television.
    Thanks,

the cable in should go to the box and cable out from the box to the TV.These should all be coaxial cables correct?Hook up the DVD player to the TV using the red,white,and yellow cables is also correct.In order to watch a DVD,you have to use the input select button on the remote for the TV ONLY to change inputs.If you have a universal remote for the TV and not the original factory remote provided with the TV,you need to use the menu button located on the outside of the TV.I just searched on my flat screen and was unable to find an input select through the menu button.It may not be possible on this TV if you do not have the original remote and if you own a universal.My universal for one of my older TV's is about 7 years old so I do not know if newer ones have an input select option.If they do not,it is most likely due to patents and royalty payments which these cheap remote makers do not want to pay.Anyhow,let me know if this helps.Just comment here and i will get an auto link to your comments.Good luck!

I hooked it up the way the manual said and it doesnt work


Try whatever applies best below, in order...

Cable Box optical Digital Audio to Digital Audio In. (This brings TV-related multi-channel and normal audio into the receiver so you can hear it over the speakers. Turn TV volume OFF.

The cable box probably has a pair of stereo Audio Out RCA jacks. Run those directly to the TV so you can watch and hear cable programming over the TV's speakers without having to turn the system on. Turn TV volume UP.

Depending on your TV's Video In capabilities, use the Cable Box HDMI, Component (Red, Blue and Green), or Composite Video (single Yellow associated with the Audio Out) directly attached to the TV.

You should not lose any picture quality from the DVD player. I am currently having the similar setup with PS3 as the Blu-ray DVD player with HDMI and a Samsung DVD as regular player with component cable to a Samsung LCD TV. Remember the quality on Blu-ray is better than normal DVD so don't expect more than what it is.

What button on Bose remote will erase material on cable box DVR?


Try 'Enter' if you haven't already. A yes/no question on a cable box is usually a toggle, so select yes and press Enter. If that doesn't work, try a different code from the system menu. (Press 'System' and go to 'remote control.')

Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8300 says ''EXPLORER not AUTHORIZED


The message is so cryptic...it's right. There is no way to unblock it yourself. This is the box connecting to your cable company's servers and being told that, "no, you are not allowed to access content, disable yourself." It is referred to as "bricking" as the box is now as useful as a brick.

If the box worked previously and all-of-a-sudden this happened, then it could be that there is a typo in your account, and your cable company can correct it quickly. It could also be that your bill is past due and needs to be paid. Generally if it's a past due issue, a payment will reactivate it instantly.

If you are not paying for digital service and you bought this from eBay or got it at a flea market, then you'd need to add service and add the box to your account. The problem is your cable company might not like one box reappearing on another account--it seems stolen. They may just want the box back, and give you another that would work.
