Question about Panasonic SC-HT900 System
Recent purchase of an Apple TV, unit red light is showing at end of cable. Music plays on normal TV sound but nothing on the surround sound system
If you have direct cable into the television, you will need to use an audio output if available on the back of your set into your HT system.
If you are using cable w/ a cable box you have two options. You can still connect everything directly into the TV then reroute the audio to the HT system... or, you could hook only video to the TV and audio from the cable box to the HT system. Really up to you.

I will get back with you on this tommorow with more information when I can get the technical data I need from where I work.
These units are know for the problem you are describing.
If you have to connect all of your speakers to the subwoofer, then yes, you can replace the subwoofer and it will fix your problem. I just don't remember right now if this unit is the one with the amplifier built into the sub woofer, but I think it is.
Since you paid another repair center you really should take it back to them to fix it right. They probably did not test it long enough to verify if they fixed your problem.
I know it is a real pain to have to take it back, more so if it is far away, but the problem you are having is nothing you will be able to fix yourself unless you have some decent electronic troubleshooting and soldering skills.
Get back with you soon,

I had the same problem, so i contacted panasonic, I am including the email they sent me.
For connections of audio, so that you can hear all tv audio through the
surround system, connect either an optical audio cable or red & white
analog audio cables from the tv to the home theater. If you are using
optical audio, there is a plug on back of tv labeled for digital audio
output and an input on the surround sound system. If you plan on using
analog red and white, use the PROG OUT red and white output jacks on the
back of the tv to the AUX input on the home theater.
For video connections, to get HD you will need to be using either HDMI or
Component cables. HDMI is the cable that will provided 1080p signal (the
best HD signal), but if the source does not output 1080p, then your tv
will not display 1080p. Most cable boxes output at 1080i or 720p when on
HD stations. This signal still provides great picture quality, but HDMI is
not needed to get these HD signals. You can use component cables for your
cable box and the DVD player output to the tv for video. HDMI might give
you a slightly better picture quality but the signal will be the same.
To make the connection, you will want to connect from the cable box to the
tv (component or hdmi). Also from the home theater system to the tv using
hdmi or the video cables from component (red, blue, & green cables).
We hope this information is helpful to you.
