We have recently hooked up external speakers to our tv, they sound great at first, but then they turn to static. (not the speaker system, tried multiple sets) We think something might be getting too hot, possibly a fan not working? We have a small fan blowing on the back of the TV now and it continues to work, but this isn't a good fix.

Re: Surround Sound gets static
I'm trying to understand if the speakers are connected directly to the TV, or via an amp. If you have an option try connecting them through an amp so that the TV doesnt have to amp them, you'll get better results. even if there was no static in the first place its a better idea.

Extra speakers without having the external speaker jacks in the rear is definitely a NO NO. The surround sound is used by connecting the RCA jacks from the TV that say Audio Out to the surround sound audio input on the receiver.. The RCA cables are cheap, you can get them at Home Depot ect....
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.
