Question about Panasonic Home Theater System System

Open Question

I have a Panasonic Viera TXP50C2B TV and Panasonic Surround sound system SC-PT480. I have connected an HDMI cable between them and although I can get DVD's to play perfectly (sound & picture) I cannot get the TV to play through the Surround sound system without disconnecting the HDMI cable and using a Scart lead between the two. I have lost the manual for the TV but have tried playing with the configuration settings to no Avail. Please can you help me ??

SOURCE: 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,

It's possible that you have the wrong type of HDMI cable. You need one that has Audio Return if you want to feed your Home Theater system with audio from the TV. There are several types of HDMI cable,some with audio return and some without. The two basic types (not including Ethernet) are described below - you need the High Speed version, which does have Audio Return.

hdmi-standard.jpgHDMI Standard This is the most basic HDMI standard which all cables have to meet. Cable should contain all the connections required for HD transmission, and have to deliver at least a resolution of 720p, (Video mode of 1280 x 720 meaning 720 Horizontal lines). These cables do not contain an Ethernet connection, or audio return.

hdmi-high-speed.jpgHDMI High Speed HDMI High Speed cables will support higher resolutions of 1080p. This means at least 1080 Horizontal lines, and cables rated at this specification may well support high resolutions of up to 4096 x 2160 (2160 Horizontal lines), check individual cables specifications for this data. Cables in this specification will also support a data transfer speed of 10.2Gbs (not to be confused with ethernet data speeds which are different), and a clock speed of 320Mhz. These cables do not contain an Ethernet connection, but do include an Audio Return Channel.

How to connect my hdtv to surround for audio


It looks like from my searching you have an optical link on your tv and your reciver. You should just have to choose that as your output on the tv and your input on the reciver. It should be labled something like spdif. In my opinion it is the best cable ever until hdmi came out now its still really good.

How do i connect Panasonic sc PT480 home theater Panasonic lcd tv Panasonic Blu Ray and Virgin V+ box. I have lots of cables but have got totally confused.


Ok, so first, you need to get the pictures to the TV. So, you should have an HDMI lead from the Bluray to the TV. You should have either an HDMI or SCART lead from the Virgin Box to the TV. If you are going to play and DVD's from the Home Theater system, this too needs a scart to the TV, but if you are planning to use the bluray for all playing back, then this is not needed. Next, you want to get the sound from all your equipment to the home theater system. This where it can get confusing, as there are different types of leads that do the same thing. If your TV has an 'Optical Out', and the Theater system has an 'Optical In' then you can connect the two with a Fibre-optic cable, and that means that anything then that you have on the screen, can have the sound through your surround sound. Digital Coaxial In's/outs do the same thing, as do Phono In's/Outs, but phono cables will not carry 5.1 digital. I hope this helps!

Blu ray connect to my sc-pt660


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.

Panasonic HDMI surround system problem


The HDMI cable connection on your system is a video out to your TV.
To get audio from the TV so you can hear it through the system, you need to add a cable from the audio out of your TV to the "aux" input on the panasonic system.
This is most likely a red and white connection which will give you stereo, or pro-logic surround from the home theater system.
