Surround sound only comes over the digital out on back of the TV or better, on back of the Verizon boc, itll be a orange RCA jack I believe or the fiber TOS link, These go into your receiver into the same style jack. Digital in may only be associated with the DVD input. if your tv has a HDMI input, you can use the HDMI cable from the convertor box to the TV and then the digital out on the TV into the receiver, but I like the digital out to go straight to the receiver from the convertor box. HDMI tpo the TV will allow you to watch TV on the internal speakers if you dont want to use the amp.

No surrond sound


TV's are not sources of multichannel audio. The best you'll get is stereo analog. Get the best TV-related audio from the same source the TV gets it - in this case the Cable Box.

Can only get the dvd player to use the surrond system


This is going to be a bit tricky with this model, since either your Cable or Sat box will need a Digital Audio Out, and you will need to purchase a Digital Audio cable. If your sat box has a digital audio out, connect a digital audio cable from the sat box to the digital audio in on the back of the Samsung. Then connect a red and white AV composite cable from an available audio out on the back of the cable box to the "Aux In 2" on the back of the Samsung - this may only allow stereo sound, however.

Your absolute best bet (and the simplest connection) will depend on whether your TV has a SPDIF OUT or Digital Audio Out (they are roughly the same). If your TV has a Digital Audio out, connect a digital audio cable from the TV to the Digital Audio IN of the Samsung. Now you will get sound from any cable, sat, or any other type of box that is connected to your TV.

No Sound In Home Theater with Dish HDTV DVR Dual Mode Remote Connection


HDTV is not carried via coaxial cable from tuner, you need HDMI or the 5 RCA cables that are different colors. I forget if they are called component or composite, I think they are called composite, the R and W are sound. If you run the HDMI or composite cables to your TV, there should be a variable out or audio out on the back of the TV that outputs ANY sound coming into the TV, like Wii, DVD, tv, etc. So if you want to listen to tv sound, just pipe the audio out to the receivers available input and turn it up. Cant be used with mag input (turntable) all others are compatible. Did this answer your question? Sat cables are usually kept under 130 ft from the dish, and the dish receiver can output coaxial signal over 400ft on RG-6 cable. HDMI is limited and can get very expensive. Does your sat box have a coaxial digital out (orange RCA) you can use that if your receiver can read it, usually associated with the DVD input or video input, but only for digital encoded programs.

Setting up receive set top box and tv for surround sound


Plug the TV to an open channel on your receiver via this output:
*Rear, 1 x Digital audio output (coaxial) ( TOSLINK )
This will look like a single RCA output plug.
Set that input channel on your receiver to some sort of virtual surround mode because it doesn't look like your HDTV has a decoder in it (meaning it will come out stereo and the receiver will have to fake it).
Turn the volume all the way down on the TV and use the receiver to control TV volume just as you do with DVDs.

*Substitute this with the digital audio output on your set top box if you are sending video only to the TV from the set top box (component, DVI or s-video connections). So video goes to the TV, audio to the receiver.
