You don't name your amp so I have to make some assumptions that it/they does not have digital input capability.

No biggie. The Xonar DOES have both coaxial and optical digital audio out AND 8-channel (7.1) analog output. If you're dabbling in multichannel your unnamed control center SHOULD accept at least one of the former and the might accept the latter, sometimes called something like multichannel in or external converter in. Many do.

One point of using digital audio is to eliminate medium-caused abberations that are common in the analog world. Switching from digital-analog more than once in the chain WILL introduce artifacts so it is best to minimize those conversions.

    Thos would be the FIRST time the Mod XP 201 Phono Preamp was mentioned. It's a simple analog preamp.

    Its ANALOG output goes to the Sound card's ANALOG input.

    I see no mention of a toslink being allowed or even necessary.

    Which card or device are we talking about this time? You said (yesterday) you see analog and digital connections on the Digitech (" Analog To Digital Audio Converter Digitech (Mod AC-1611 It Has Stereo RCA Inputs & Toslink & Coax Outputs").

    Something like, say, the phono preamp, could use the analog set.

    My $.02... use a minimum amount of d/a and a/d conversions between the source and your ears or there will be anomalies and excessive loss of detail.

    We're still ping-ponging here. First the Xonar, then the Mod XP 201, now the Xonar. Perhaps yours is a variant as I see a lot of Xonar SC-HDAV 1.3 but not a Xonar SC 1.3.


    Analog Output Jack: 8x RCA jack
    Analog Input Jack: 1x Line-In/Mic-In 3.50mm mini jack
    Other line-level analog input (for CD-IN/TV Tuner): CD-In, Aux-In (4-pin header on the card)
    Digital S/PDIF Output: Coaxial and High-bandwidth Optical Combo Connector; Supports 192KHz/24bit
    Digital S/PDIF Input: Coaxial and High-bandwidth Optical Combo Connector; Supports 192KHz/24bit(Shared with Line/Mic In)
    HDMI Input/Outut: 1x HDMI1.3 - In/Out Type A

    The Phono preamp you introduced has analog outputs. AND it has a combo coax/optical digital audio connector. WHAT more do you need?

Have bought a Panasonic soundbar SC-HTB8. No connection cable included. Which cable do we need to buy to connect Soundbar to tv please?

You will need an optical digital audio connection for the TV and the TV will have to be fitted with a compatible "optical digital audio" OUT connection.
The soundbar unit you have does not have an HDMI connection so you only have the one choice with cable..
Any electronics store selling cables will fit you with the correct one.
The one pictured here next to the HDMI cable is the type you need (aka Toslink) but if you don't have an Optical digital Audio Out connection on your TV you have a problem.

How do I connect a Panasonic TX-50A300B (TV) to a Panasonic SC-HTB20 Home Audio System?

The audio system sports both a HDMI input AND an Optical input - one can use either. The TV has both of those as outputs so you truly can use either!
You'll need a HDMI to HDMI cable or an Optical to optical TOSlink cable.

I need some help hooking up an amp, tv, and xbox 360 together please! I have a Toshiba 46g310u TV and Xbox 360 already hooked up together using an HDMI cable. I just bought a Yamaha R-S300 amplifier,...

Many TVs have to have the optical output enabled in a set-up menu. Do you see red when the connector is disconnected (which doesn't necessarily mean that it is active, just that it is 'ON').

Have you checked the amplifier to insure that the input is working by connecting something else directly up to it? Can you test the TOSLINK converter by plugging the output into something else to determine where the problem lies. I still suspect it is in the menus of the TV.

How to connect a ps3 to a panasonic sc-btt190 home theater

My suggestion would be to use the ps3 to connect to TV using hdmi & then use an optical audio output (toslink) from TV to the btt190... You would think they would have one or two hdmi connections there but no they have none.... This is how I connected appletv to the btt190.... Works fine you just have to set tv input to appletv and btt190 input to >>ext in >> digital in....
Good luck. Btw have you connected to network? Did you have any troubles - mine will not connect via cat5 cable...

Connect with componet cables.

The only digital audio input for this TV will be via the HDMI input. Of course, even with HDMI in, you're only going to get a simple stereo output from the TV. You can use the analog L & R audio inputs for a very similar sound from the TV speakers.

The digital multi-channel audio (Dolby Digital, THX, 5.1, 7.1, etc) encoded in the program should be connected to a suitable multi-channel amplifier with either a TOSLINK (optical), RF (coaxial) or HDMI cable for theatre-like sound. This can be done by (a) cabling from the source (DVD, BluRay Disk, Set Top TV Tuner, etc.) directly to a multi-channel amp and speakers, or (b) from the HDMI output of these devices (DVD, BluRay Disk, Set Top TV Tuner, etc.) into one or both of the TV's HDMI inputs. This will provide only stereo sound output from the TV speakers. You should connect the TV's TOSLINK optical "Digital Output" jack with an optical cable to the amplifier's TOSLINK optical input jack to obtain theatre sound.

To listen to the program shown, you would select the amplifier input assciated with the optical, RF or HDMI input that is connected to the source (DVD, BluRay Disk, Set Top TV Tuner, etc.) if connected directly. If the TV HDMI input(s) are used, they are output to the TV optical output and should be connected to the amplifier optical input. The amp input associated with the optical input should be selected to hear the program with theatre-like sound.

I have the SB-HW950 subwoofer and teh SC-PT950 speakers and I just purchased a Denon Receiver to replace my DVD/ receiver player. So now I have SC-PT950 speakers playing through the Denon but for some...

Yes, the old Panasonic SC-PT950 did drive the subwoofer by its own amp, such as it was.

It's never a good idea to adapt prescribed connectors to bare speaker wire or vice versa.

Speaker Level and Line Level signals are worlds apart and equipment damage may result. Your Denon (model unknown) probably requires a POWERED SUBWOOFER, to which it would provide Line Level LFE from its Pre Out.

Read the manual where it doesn't say to convert a speaker wire to RCA.

How i do tv chanel tunig

Hello Ansarielectr, The Panasonic TH-42PWD7 is a professional grade progressive wide screen plasma display. It's not your normal HDTV. You probably already know this. This display requires a component /composite video terminal Board that mounts to slots 1 & 2, or slots 2 & 3. The item number for this component is TY-42TM6Y and can be purchased through the Panasonic support website here for about $270. Once you have this component, you can connect the TH-42PWD7 to a digital HDTV cable box to receive signals. Just make sure you're on the right input signal. Hope this helps.

We have a SC-HT65 home theater audio system and somehow the display screen is completely black like it has been turned off somehow. How do i get the display screen back on?

I had the same problem here with my SC-HT65 that I bought today. I was trying to connect it to a TiVO DVR, and it was blanking the screen out, and only showing 2 or so seconds of video at poweroff and poweron. After some searching and trialling, I discovered that the HDCP bitstream coming from the TiVO was incompatible with the HDMI decoder on the panasonic. By separating the bitstream AV (I utilised a digital audio connection to separate the AV, whether via coax or toslink(fibre) - I used toslink, the video stream then started working properly. Hope this helps
