Connecting for surround on the PD-DVR100

The output I have has something called S/PDIF for digital audio output. What kind of a cable do I need to connect to the PD-DVR100 to record surround sound? I see on the back of the PD-DVR100 has a digital audio output, but not an input that looks the same. Is there a cable that goes from the S/PDIF to an audio l/r in?
Thanks, Bob

What is the spdif plug in for on back of tv


S/PDIF (Sony/Philips Digital Interface Format) is a type of digital audio interconnect used in consumer audio equipment to output audio over reasonably short distances. The signal is transmitted over either a coaxial cable with RCA connectors or a fibre optic cable with TOSLINK connectors. S/PDIF interconnects components in home theatres and other digital high-fidelity systems.

When I connect Unisar TV920 to the digital (S/PDIF)audio output jack on my Philips 26PFL4507 no sound comes through. I've searched for a "simple" resolution. Is it something to do with the S/PDIF?


If the cable you use to send the S/PDIF signal is a fiberoptic toslink cable, inspect the ends very closely. The clear plastic nubs that protect the laser output can look an awful lot like part of the connection itself. If you haven't done so, remove them and try again.

I have a Sony bluray surround sound and lg smart tv, I can't play my Apple TV sound through my hts, all my connections are hdmi and both systems have arc, please help?


Is your Apple TV connected to the Sony or directly to your TV? If directly connected to the Sony HTS ARC shouldn't be needed and you should have audio. If that's the case check the Apple TV settings to be sure it isn't set for s/pdif output. If connected to the TV then the TV should be able to put a s/pdif signal on the HDMI ARC pin but perhaps there's no way to assign it to the HDMI input coming from the HTS? It may be going to the ARC pin on the Apple TV HDMI input which won't give you any sound. Normally ARC is intended to put the s/pdif signal from the TV's internal tuner on the HDMI cable from the HTS so the HTS can play TV sound without having to tun a separate Toslink cable from the TV s/pdif output to the HTS. One other thing: Early HDMI cables do not include the ARC wire so be sure you have ARC capable cables. Look in your TV documentation to see if there is a way to assign the ARC output to a different incoming HDMI input if the Apple TV is connected directly to the TV. If not you may need to resort to a Toslink optical cable from your TV to an optical input on your HTS. Or actually running that cable from Apple TV to the HTS would be better since it's possible it could carry surround sound. Most TV's optical outputs are limited to the 2 channel sound the TV can accept.

What s-video cables do i need and what size and what kind of component video cable and what kind of coaxial cable do i need


If your TV has component, then get one component video cable (green/red/blue) and a set of RCA for audio (red/white).
S-Video/Coax is obsolete for dvd players unless you have an old TV.

How do I get my Samsung TV audio to output though my onkyo tx-sr608?


If it is a relatively new TV you should use an optical digital audio cable. These are often called "toslink" cables. Plug one end into the "digital audio out" port of your TV, and the other into a free toslink port on the receiver (there are two on the back and a third on the front of the 608).
You should then change the settings on your samsung tv to: - turn the digital audio (s/pdif) output on - allow bitstream output over s/pdif - turn the tv speaker off I am not sure which model Samsung you have, so I can't go into great detail, but I'm sure you will be able to find the relevant settings, most likely under "sound" in your system menu.

lastly, you will probably want to use the input assign page of the onkyo on-screen menu to assign whichever input you use to your TV, and change its name accordingly.

Dont kno how to record


Connect your cable from the wall to the RF IN on the back of pd-dvr100
Connect your RF OUT on the back of your pd-dvr100 with a coaxial cable not included to the RF IN on your cable box
Connect the red, yellow, and white RCA Cable to the front or back of your TV
and to the audio out and video out on your pd-dvr100
Press the SETup button on your remote use the up and down buttons to select the channel scan sub menu
select IRC for your tuner input source
select scan and press Enter
The recorder can now record all scanned channels onto your dvd+r when you press the record button
I only got it to record the scanned channels.
The good thing is you can record on another station while you are watching a show on your cable box.

Surround cuts out???


Are you useing a digital audio cable when its cutting on & off? How long between the on & off? I have the same problem when I use a digital audio cable or a coaxial audio cable from my DVD player. To use the surround (6 CH) feature you need to use the 6 channel RCA jacks and if what ever your hooking up dosent have the RCA outputs your out of luck. My DVD player does have the 6 channel outputs and they work but the digital cables won't work. What are you connecting to it? I think something is wrong with the digital circuit board in mine, I would like to replace it and see. Reading your manual will help understand the 6 channel RCA and fiber optic digital cables. I hope any of this helped.
