Surround sound How can I get my system to support 5.1 surround sound when I'm not playing a DVD and just watching TV?

    I dont believe this reciever has dolby when using the red/white inputs. I have the same issue. My Sony will light up the Dolby indicator anytime there is Dolby coming into the red/white wires. The Panasonic never lights up the Dolby unless you are playing a DVD. I believe this is a design issue with the Panasonic. I called Panasonic and was advised there is only stereo when using the white/red input. There is no Dolby surround. I could not believe they built it that way. Jim.

The t.v. broadcast will have to be in 5.1 for it to work, otherwise it will just be a 2 channel stereo mix.

I can't get the surround sound to work while watching tv. The audio works when I play a DVD, but I can't get it to work while watching tv.


make sure the program you're watching is surround encoded, otherwise you will just get L/R or mono audio ;-)

This is a typical problem with TV broadcast UNLESS you use a matrix DSP surround sound mode, most DVD audio is either Dolby digital 5.1 surround or DTS multi-channel surround sound, unless you are viewing a HDTV broadcast with 5.1 Digital sound connected from the TV to the receiver then you are probably receiving a 2 channel Stereo sound format, I would suggest that you try to set your TV input mode to a audio Dolby Pro- Logic which will yield 5.1 and should engage all speakers.

Surround sound ok whilst playing dvd but not working for tv


On your Sagem TV you should have two RCA ouputs (red and white connection usually marked ouput) ) Connect these to the input on the surround system using the interlink cable.

You should then be able to hear the sound from the TV by changing the SOURCE on the home cinema remote.

Better still if you have a digital out on your TV use that instead.

Surround sound hookup question?


It looks like all you'll need to do is hook up audio out from DirecTV to audio in on the surround sound system. Sony has an interesting hookup recommendation guide on the product support site:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-home.pl?mdl=DAVC700&LOC=3

That should give you the connection options. The short answer, though, is to connect the best audio out from DirecTV to an audio in on the surround sound and then choose that option in the surround sound system when you want to watch TV.
