Question about Samsung HTP-1200 System
I need a professional advice on the Samsung Home Theater System (Flat Panel 52” LCD HDTV 1080p, Digital Surround AV Receiver System HT-AS720S, Blu-Ray Disc Player BD-P1400) I bought from BestBuy in Toronto, Canada recently. I am in the Philippines. I think I am not getting my money’s worth until I get satisfaction on the quality of audio the system is expected to deliver. I would like to think that I haven’t set up the system right. This documentation is for the purpose of validating with Samsung technical guys if the set up was not proper. (I must say the pieces of technology appliances are NOT very user-friendly.)
1. When playing the Blu-Ray Disc Player, the 2 rear speakers and the sub-woofer are not working.
I may have made a mistake in setting up because I did not notice Page 24 of the Instruction Manual on the subject of Setting HDMI AUDIO which says:
• Press the INPUT MODE button to select HDMI1 or HDMI2.
• If you select Digital (Optical, Coaxial)or Analog, the HDMI audio setting will be deactivated.
I am not sure but I may have selected Digital or Analog (I have not seen HDMI1 or HDMI2 while setting up), but there should be a series of commands to get it back to HDMI.
I am not also sure if the only way to get HDMI AUDIO is through a HDMI Cable, which was not supplied and which I haven’t bought and therefore haven’t installed.
When testing the speakers automatically (TEST-T AUTO) or manually (TEST-T MANU), all installed speakers are functioning.
I would like to know the recommended settings for the following (the Instruction Manual is vague on these):
• DIGITAL IN (the INPUT MODE button seem not to be working after the AVR has been initially set up.
• HDMI AUDIO (message did not appear while setting up. Is the HDMI cable necessary?)
• NEO:6 MODE
• EX/ES MODE (How is that? My AVR is 7.1 and my Blue-Ray Disc Player is 5.1. Does it matter?)
• SET UP MODE (The other buttons seem not working anymore. I can’t choose EFFECTS anymore.)
2. When inputting TV signal to the AVR, the 7.1 doesn’t work. Is this correct? Or am I just missing something?
We had the same problem with the rear speakers not working and we tried so many things. We found a button at the bottom of the blu-Ray remote that says MODE and changed it from stereo to Matrix or Movie and ta da it worked. I guess we had all the connections correct. We used a HDMI cable and an optical.
I am no expert, but it's working now : )

you need a fibre optical cable for this, simply you connect that from your dvd to tv and then set the input on the dvd to digi in. i have exactly same home cinema system.
