Re: Setting up Panasonic SC-HT930 to Cable Box & TV
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.

Here are a few ways to go about this.
connect the cable box hdmi (if Capable) to the panasonic hdmi input. Then connect panasonic hdmi out to tv hdmi in. The easy thing about this setup is that you only need the two hdmi cables because they carry both audio and video.
If your cable box or tv are not hdmi compatible, Then connect video output from cable box directly to your tv, and send an audio feed from your cable box to the panasonic.
Hope this helps,
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.
You can use the PANASONIC AUX IN ports for your TV or CABLE BOX audio, unless you run the DIGITAL CABLE into the PANASONIC, this may be available on the CABLE BOX or your TV, my suggestion is if you use the Cable box to view TV then use the CABLE BOX AUDIO OUTPUTS, you would be better with the CABLE BOX digital output INTO YOUR panasonic, but if it is already being used take the AUDIO out analog connection from your cable box into your Panasonic AUX INPUTS, then set the Panasonic to AUX IN mode.
greetings, you should be able to use rca cables for simple connectivity. hook the x box up to the tv as you would normally on the back or side of the tv there should be audio inputs and audio outputs. xbox signal goes to input and rca cables from output on tv to aux or tv input on your reciever. then make sure that whatever audio input jacks you connected your tv to your reciever with are the same as the function or mode input on the front of the reciever. if you need more assistance look your reciever up on the manufacture's website and diagrams should be available in the search portion of the website
hope this helps
I found that since the Panasonic TH50PZ80U TV has only 2 HDMI ports on the back of the TV, the best solution for me was to use component (red, blue, green) cables to connect the Home Theatre to the TV. I suppose I/you could connect the home theatre to the HDMI port on the front panel, but I don't want cables hanging out the front of the TV (personal preference). Unfortunately, I am no longer able to use the VIERA Link functionality available by connecting all Panasonic components to each other using HDMI cables, but I feel it's a small price to pay for the incredible picture quality acheived by using the HDMI cable to connect the HD Cable Box to the TV. I may yet be able to control everything using the HD Cable Box remote, but I haven't gotten that far yet but I've got Comcast coming on Saturday and hopefully they can let me know if this is possible: let me know if you have a solution.
So here are the components and the cable types used to connect:
HD Cable Box to TV: HDMI cable & Optical Audio cable
Home Theatre to TV: Red, Blue & Green component cables
Don't worry about sending the TV audio to the Panasonic. Just send a digital audio signal from the cable box to the Panasonic.
DVD - Panasonic connected via HDMI
TV - Panasonic connected via HDI
cable connected to cable box and TV. But you will not really be using the cable connection to the TV (TV Tuner) since you will want HD feed from cable box through HDMI input on TV.
You aren't concerned about feeding the TV speakers because your audio will always come from the home theatre.
Note that some components don't feed audio through HDMI, in which case you will need to use optical digital audio.
I've had similar problems in the past. With audio problems trace the problem from the source to the amp.
1. What output is the cable box using for audio, digital or analog? 2. Is there a setting in the cable box to switch between digital and analog? 3. Once you have determined the output of the cable box check to make sure that it's going into the right output on the panasonic 4. This is where the problem usually is...what is the receiver expecting for sound, analog or digital? 5. Switching between the sources...the sound should be on one of them.
