Trying to connect surround Sound to my Sony Bravia 32" LCD monitor via HDMI

Hi, I purchased a dvi to hdmi cable to route my mac to my bravia 32" monitor. I also purchased an XTREMEHD switcher so I could have more than one input to my monitor. My hdtv cable box works (hdmi connection) and my Sony Bravia surround sound works (hdmi connection) both independantly

Problem #1
I cant get the surround sound to work when Im watching tv...that is, only the tv speakers work and the surround sound speakers dont...when Im watching a dvd, the surround sound speakers work and the lcd tv speakers are somehow disabled...is there a setting somewhere that can correct this? I've tried a few but cant figure it out...HELP!

Problem#2
My hdtv cable box and sony bravia surround sound/dvd player both work going through the hdmi switcher...but when I try to connect my Mac computer through the switcher (using a DVI to HDMI connector) or directly to my Sony Bravia LCD monitor, I get nothing...is there a setting for this on the Bravia TV that I'm missing???

Pleeeeeeeeease Help!

    I have the same problem - my toshiba regza 42" TV is playing perfect sound from the TV speakers but nothing is coming out of my surround sound, also I have tried hooking my toshiba laptop upto the TV using an HDMI cable and it is not recognizing it at all. Funny thing is I have the same TV but a 32" and all of the above is working fine - but it is the 42" annoyingly that I am having the most problems with and this would be the second time I would have to send it back - which is a major inconvenience - so if anyone has any ideas on how to fix this that would be great

SOURCE: problems with hearing sound from bravia LCD tv through bravia DAV-HDX275 theatre system

The fiber optic port on back on your bravia tv is only for when your using a over the air antenna and watching local atsc channels in your local market. You need to run the fiber optic from your hd cablebox if it has one or your hd sat box if it has one. If you don't have a set top box with the fiberoptic port on it you can use a digital coax cable from the cable or sat box to sound system. The only other way to get sound if you don't have a cable or sat box is to run the red and white rca audio cable from the tv to the sound system and got to the audio setup on tv and turn the tv speakers off and you might have to adjust the audio to fixed instead of variable.

SOURCE: Sony Bravia Dav-HDX279W and comcast HDTV Cable box connection.

Like above, use an optical connection (need fiber optic cable) or a coaxial connection (single RCA cable). HDMI might also work, but I personally haven't checked. Connect the audio outs from the cable box to the audio ins on the home theater. The TV will only need a video connection from the cable box, as well as one from the home theater (for DVDs, onscreen menus).

This discussion can help you set up the universal remote.

I have a Sony DAV-HDX275 Theater System that I'm trying to connect to an old 17 LCD Dell Monitor. The cable I have is a HDMI to DVI connector. My monitor will pick to the digital signal but nothing appears...


This is because it is transmitting an compressed encrypted signal and the monitor is made to recieve uncompressed signals,You can sometime get around this by changing the output to vga or analog on the theater system.

Is your sony receiver HDMI pass through? some receivers dont allow audio just video through HDMI. Connect a digital coaxial cable from the dvd to the receiver and you should get true dolby surround.

DVD Does not work when using HDMI from Philips TV to Bravia


You could see if they will exchange just the unit and save both of you the hastle of checking and repackingit all. It does sound like the unit is faulty.
Or if your Bravia has more than one HDMI input then try on another, or a friends tv if you know some one with a HDMI tv in working order.

Connect PS3 for playing/viewing blue-ray thru surround sound


Connect the PS3 to your TV with the hdmi cable and to the surround sound system with a digital optical cable, then set your PS3 to output sound through the optical port (through the sound options menu) and you're good to go!

Please help with getting 5.1 sound from my TV!


You must run a Digital Optical cable from your PS3 to your reciever. Then press your function button on your recievers remote until you see SAT/CABLE on your recievers display. Next go to your PS3 settings and go to Sound settings, then Audio Output settings, and select Digital out (OPTICAL) then your done. This is the only way to get true digital sound from your PS3 to your reciever.
