Question about Sony Audio Players & Recorders

2 Answers

I want to play mp3 music on a standard hi-fi kit. I have a Sony Vaio VGC-TP media centre with an S/PDIF optical output. I am intending to buy a Cambridge Audio amplifier and a couple of bookshelf speakers. Can you tell me what kit I need to connect the PC to the amp to give the highest quality sound? I think I probably need a digital to analogue converter, but there are few around in my price range. Looking forward to hewaring from you. Martin Evans

    I hooked up the str-dg600 to my SoundMax audio card via optical TOSLINK cable. I cant get the subwoofer or surround speakers to sound. and the center channel only makes sound when both left and right speakers are turned up in the test program. Surround back never works either

HI,all you need to do is hook up the optical out put to the optical in on the amp this will give you the best sound, also try phono out of media centre if you have it as this has a higher band width.

HOPE THIS HELPS.

I have a Sony bluray surround sound and lg smart tv, I can't play my Apple TV sound through my hts, all my connections are hdmi and both systems have arc, please help?


Is your Apple TV connected to the Sony or directly to your TV? If directly connected to the Sony HTS ARC shouldn't be needed and you should have audio. If that's the case check the Apple TV settings to be sure it isn't set for s/pdif output. If connected to the TV then the TV should be able to put a s/pdif signal on the HDMI ARC pin but perhaps there's no way to assign it to the HDMI input coming from the HTS? It may be going to the ARC pin on the Apple TV HDMI input which won't give you any sound. Normally ARC is intended to put the s/pdif signal from the TV's internal tuner on the HDMI cable from the HTS so the HTS can play TV sound without having to tun a separate Toslink cable from the TV s/pdif output to the HTS. One other thing: Early HDMI cables do not include the ARC wire so be sure you have ARC capable cables. Look in your TV documentation to see if there is a way to assign the ARC output to a different incoming HDMI input if the Apple TV is connected directly to the TV. If not you may need to resort to a Toslink optical cable from your TV to an optical input on your HTS. Or actually running that cable from Apple TV to the HTS would be better since it's possible it could carry surround sound. Most TV's optical outputs are limited to the 2 channel sound the TV can accept.

How do i connect my sony desktop model vgc rb52 to my tv. I checked the specs and I (believe it or not) do not have an s-video port, dvi-d monitor port or another vga monitor port. I have 2 usb ports,...


You must purchase an adapter that converts USB to a VGA Port. That is the only way!! Tigerdirect.com has them fairly cheap. I know of this because I did this exact thing and it works perfectly for me going on two years now!! Try It You Can Always Return in 30 Days @ Tigerdirect.com

How do i make a recovery disk for the vaio vgc-ra830g pc?


Hello again,

Sony sells the recovery media if you require it.
https://servicesales.sel.sony.com/ecom/accessories/web/categorySearch.do?operation=subCategorySearch&subCategory=109&category=3&subCategoryName=Recovery%20CD&categoryName=Computer

if the link doesn't work copy it completely to your addressbar and press enter.

If your machine works and you can use it, and you have the original stuff from sony still installed then you can most likely find the vaio recovery from your start menu.

1. close all extra programs that you don't need.
2. disconnect your internet
3. disconnect printers and other extra devices
4. From the Vaio Recovery wizard appliaction, in the vaio recovery window, under media nad recovery options, click to select Create recovery media kit.
5. click the next button
6. You have two choises for recovery media either one recordable CD and two recordable DVD's

OR

10 recordable CD's.

Drivers Needed for RF Receiver


Look in the Drivers directory or partition that shipped on the HD as it was originally shipped, or check out Sony's site e.g. at http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=VGCVA10MG&LOC=3 ....

Seriously, Sony runs a support line for this stuff too. It's no $70 bench fee to ask them.

How to use BA7500G on another computer


I have the same problem except i'm using a macbook and i'm trying to connect the speakers. My macbok accommodates optical digital audio output, but you have to buy a  a standard toslink cable with a toslink mini-plug adapter.  Since the speaker input is a digital coaxial (not fiber, optical) you have to buy a Digital Fiber Optical (Toslink) to Digital Coaxial (S/PDIF) Converter.  i haven't tried it, but i hope this solves our problem. i have the toslink now i just have to buy the converter. good luck to you.

Downloading music from internet to an MP3 player


I guess Sanyo means that have an input jack (line in or aux) where you can connect your mp3 player (after you've downloaded music into it), then hear it on your hi-fi.

Just make sure you connect either the line out or the earphone jack from your mp3 player to the aux or line-in on your hi-fi, then set the hi-fi to play aux or line-in.
