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 too have just purchased a new Sony Bravia 32" LCD TV how ever i am not able to get allround sound through the speakers whilst in TV mode? All round speakers work in DVD mode?

    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.

Ps3 doesnt give out a surround sound output


Hi
In this configration you will not get surround sound. Because tv is not able to reproduse the surround sound through its out put from the HDMI input. You have to connect the HDMI of PS3 to the Onkyo receiver and the HDMI Monitor Out of the Onkyo to the TV. This can only done if the Onkyo AVR Have HDMI IN/OUT option.

If not the connect the Optical out of PS3 to any one of the optical input of the Onkyo receiver.
After that you have to goto the setup Menu the Onkyo and assing the optical input in wich you have conncted the PS3.

Aslo the following setting in PS3

Menu>>> Settings >>> Sound Settings >>> Audio Output Settings >>> Select the connector..= DIGITAL OUTPUT (OPTICAL)

Hi,

You can only use your TV for viewing internet from your computer by using the TV as a PC monitor. To do this you should connect your computer to your TV using a standard VGA cable - the same as you would use to connect your computer to any other external monitor. You should note that this cable doesn't carry a sound signal so you can't use the TV speakers for sound output.

However, you can connect an HDMI cable from your computer to your TV to play media files or DVDs. This cable does carry a sound signal so you will be able to use your TV speakers here. This cable cannot be used for turning your TV into a PC monitor.

And all of above shouldn't be confused with "Internet TV". This is something totally different and requires your TV to be connected directly to the internet.

Hope this helps.

I'm trying to use my bravia as a computer monitor.


Your Bravia should have a 15 pin PC input, this input can take most standard PC resolutions, however if you a have a video card with an HDMI port, you should set your resolution to 1920 x 1080 @ 60Hz refresh rate so that the signal can be recognized and processed, many standard PC video resolutions are not compatible with the HDMI inputs. You should not require audio cables unless you are using a DVI to HDMI connection.

No sound when my computer is connected to my Sony Bravia TV


If your computer has a svga output use input 7 on tv with vga to vga cable and 3.5-3.5 Radioshack 42-2387 cable for audio for best results. If you use the dvi to hdmi on input 6 on tv use 3.5- rca Radioshack part number 42-2551 1/8=3.5mm.

Toshiba HDTV + SONY PLAYSTATION 3 + SONY Home Theatre DAVHDX265


I have looked up the infomation on your TV I noticed that your TV has two HDMI input plugs. Since your SONY BRAVIA is hooked up to one port, you need to buy another HDMI cable for your PS3. On your tv remote you should have an option to switch from video 1 to video 2 so then you can switch from the SONY BRAVIA to the PS3 the problem is you will only hear your PS3 Sound from you TV. If you want to hear your PS3 sound from your SONY BRAVIA you need to buy an optical cable (also called TOSLINK) to connect from your PS3 to the SONY BRAVIA.

Hope that helps!

Audio via hdmi


Have you tried to hook up your DVD player directly to the surround sound system? If you direct the sound through the TV, it has to pass several circuits and the quality will be lover. Just connect it right away to your sound system. :-)
