Check if the audio cable is working to another audio system or try another input option to your Panasonic HT system

I have a panasonic TX P50 C3B 50" Plasma TV and want to connect it to a SC PT470 home cinema system only I cant see that I have a fiber optic connection on the tv and no matter what i try i cant get...

If you want to listen your TV on your Stereo system thru your Home Cinema receiver, you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" of your TV to "AUX input " or "Any input" of your receiver ( except Phone ) or "Optic Cable input" than just switch to respective mode corresponding your RCA or Optic connection...
There you go..Your TV sound is on the Receiver..
Take care and pls remember to rate me..If you cant succeed you can contact me for more solution..

I would like to onnect my laptop and/or USB datastick directly to the home theater system (SC-PT480) to play movies How do I do this?

You can do your laptop. If you want to listen to music from your flash-drive u can plug it in to your laptop and do it from there. start by locating your audio input in the back of your subwoofer (the main one with the hole in it.) most likely u already have your TV plugged into it. the audio input is the spot where you plug in the red and white wires. I don't know your specific system but it should have more then one set of audio inputs. In order to do this you must first buy a cord with the red and white cables at one end and a 3.5mm headphone jack on the other(this is standard for most devices.) but you can get it at a wal-mart or radio shack. after you have purchased this item plug in you laptop or device with a headphone input. make sure you change the source of the system to the one you plugged the red and white plugs into.(it should say where u plugged them into.) now you should be able to play music. for the videos you can buy this and it would have to plug in to your longest main piece for the video. hope this helps.

I am trying to connect my Panasonic sc-pt480 to my desktop is this possible

Yes. Each should treat the other as an audio device within the unspecified sound capabilities of your PC. Get it? A sound card is no different than any other audio device except you have software controls that need to be set to us its inputs and outputs.

I bought a new panasonic home cinema model number sc-pt480eb-k. Its supposed to be 1000 watts but the output it doesn't match that output at all even with all the speakers on. What maybe the cause of this...

Hype on the part of the maufacturer's published specs.

Look at the Power Comsumption spec on page 22. "90 watts"

According to this post, 45 watts...

It would be a miracle indeed to extract 1000 watts of sustained power in any form, be it heat, light, motion or sound from a unit that uses anything less than 1000 watts of electricity, assuming 100% efficiency. Not to mention the dreadful 10% distortion level they use to get that figure.

To say it pushes 1000 watts is dishonest and preys on the gullible.

I have a Panasonic Model TC-p42X1 TV hooked up to a Panasonic SC-PT480 Home Theater system by an HDMI cable from HDMI 1 on TV to HDMI on Theater unit. System setup test okay for speaker sound connections...

It's possible that you have the wrong type of HDMI cable. You need one that has Audio Return if you want to feed your Home Theater system with audio from the TV. There are several types of HDMI cable,some with audio return and some without. The two basic types (not including Ethernet) are described below - you need the High Speed version, which does have Audio Return.

hdmi-standard.jpgHDMI Standard This is the most basic HDMI standard which all cables have to meet. Cable should contain all the connections required for HD transmission, and have to deliver at least a resolution of 720p, (Video mode of 1280 x 720 meaning 720 Horizontal lines). These cables do not contain an Ethernet connection, or audio return.

hdmi-high-speed.jpgHDMI High Speed HDMI High Speed cables will support higher resolutions of 1080p. This means at least 1080 Horizontal lines, and cables rated at this specification may well support high resolutions of up to 4096 x 2160 (2160 Horizontal lines), check individual cables specifications for this data. Cables in this specification will also support a data transfer speed of 10.2Gbs (not to be confused with ethernet data speeds which are different), and a clock speed of 320Mhz. These cables do not contain an Ethernet connection, but do include an Audio Return Channel.

According to panasonic they dont make a pt450 but they do make a 480, so I assume this will get you close enough.

here is the driver site

Best of luck

How do i connect Panasonic sc PT480 home theater Panasonic lcd tv Panasonic Blu Ray and Virgin V+ box. I have lots of cables but have got totally confused.

Ok, so first, you need to get the pictures to the TV. So, you should have an HDMI lead from the Bluray to the TV. You should have either an HDMI or SCART lead from the Virgin Box to the TV. If you are going to play and DVD's from the Home Theater system, this too needs a scart to the TV, but if you are planning to use the bluray for all playing back, then this is not needed. Next, you want to get the sound from all your equipment to the home theater system. This where it can get confusing, as there are different types of leads that do the same thing. If your TV has an 'Optical Out', and the Theater system has an 'Optical In' then you can connect the two with a Fibre-optic cable, and that means that anything then that you have on the screen, can have the sound through your surround sound. Digital Coaxial In's/outs do the same thing, as do Phono In's/Outs, but phono cables will not carry 5.1 digital. I hope this helps!

Im trying to setup a dvd home theater but the sound wont come out while watching tv it is the SC-PT480. Please help detailed setup with aux cables.

A TV can send lo-fi stereo analog to another unit via the RCA cables it may have on the back, but it will be watered-down lo-fi stereo.

Your TV-related audio would sound much better and be potentially surround if you get it digitally from the source, NOT the TV.
