How do I connect Samsung smart TV to a Yamaha receiver and get sound to come out of surround sound speakers?

Generally you will connect the Digital audio or optical audio cable from TV to the input of Receiver. Then using the remote control of Receiver you will program the source for digital audio or optical audio as TV. I am assuming the speakers on the receiver are already connected and working. All you do is then turn on TV and turn on Receiver and select TV on Receiver. The TV audio will play through the receiver. Make sure the TV sound is in Mute.

How do i connect my cable box to my tv

Connect the coaxial "Cable In" cable to the "Cable In" port on the back of your TV cable receiver box. Make sure your receiver box is not plugged in yet. 2 Take the TV audio/visual cable, and connect the red, blue and green ends to the corresponding color "Cable Out" ports on the back of your cable receiver.3 Take the other ends and plug them in to the red, blue and green ports under "V1" on the back of your TV.4 Take the audio cord with the red and white ends, and connect them to the corresponding color ports of "Audio Out" on the back of your cable receiver; then, connect the other ends to the corresponding color "Audio In" ports on the back of your TV.5 Turn on the power of your TV cable receiver box first. Allow it to run through the boot sequence. When you see the time appear on the front of the cable box, you may turn on the television and check your signal.

    I have a problem with hiss coming from the sound bar (ZBase 550 HSD) when using my digital cable box. It is not an issue with PS3 etc. I have the sound on the cable box turned to max, but I still hear a...

    Hello ZVOX Owner,
    The hiss you hear is generated by the analog audio output of the cable box. The best way to eliminate this hiss to use the digital output of the cable box. The preferred way to do this is to connect the digital audio output of both your cable box and your PS3 to the your TV (I presume your TV has two digital audio inputs.)
    Your TV has a digital audio output. You should connect the digital audio output of your TV to the digital input of the ZVOX.
    This should reduce or eliminate the hiss and provide convenient video source selection via the TV.

    Sound drop with Shaw pvr box with hdmi. How do

    This is a very common problem with no real solution. If your TV can be programmed to accept separate audio from HDMI video on the same input, you can feed the audio through standard RCA cables. Unfortunately most TV's do not allow this. Alternatively run them into a stereo receiver. Buying high end HDMI cables will not help. Most people I know with this issue have bit the bullet & just used component video instead. The difference in quality is minimal.

    Digital optical output for technics 5.1 surround sound receiver

    I went to the HDTV plasma manual. It stated the only way the digital optical audio output would work (from this TV) was to go to the menu, select audio and turn off the TV speakers. Basically, it had nothing to do with the technics receiver.

    Sony PCM 48 Issue

    As long as you continue to have both HDMI and optical outputs connected at same time from the cable box, it will probably always choose the default as HDMI. If you do not want to change any connections then the best thing to do in this case is to always leave the cable box turned on. Otherwise, disconnect the HDMI and connect it to the TV by component video.

    Hissing sound from a Panasonic old TV...Sound and picture are OK. The hissing sound even continues when the MUTE on the Box is ON. The hissing only stops when the MUTE on the TV is ON. I am using the...

    If you disconnect or power off the converter box does the hiss go away?
    If you connect a VCR or DVD player does it still have the hiss? We
    need to isolate what source is causing the hiss if it is from the set or
    if it is from the converter box.
    When you turn the volume control down on the set, does the hiss
    reduce in level? If mute stops it, it should reduce in level as you
    turn the volume down. Then turn up the sound level control on
    the converter box whether its a manual control or by remote. If you
    can get a combination that minimizes the hiss and gets higher sound
    level from the programming that may cure it.
    I am not familiar with the converter box you are using. Are you using
    Audio/Video cables from it to the set or is it coming out with coaxial cable
    and used on a channel? If you are using a very old set with a tuner input
    perhaps the fine tuning is out of adjustment.

    No sound is coming through my Onkyo receiver from the cable box

    The Playstation 3 automatically broadcasts video and audio through HDMI even when an optical audio cable is ran to the receiver. If your TV has an optical audio out, it's just best to run everything into the TV including audio, and then run the optical cable from the TV to the reciever. It's less confusing and less buttons/remotes you have to use when you want to change devices, i.e. Cable/PS3/DVD

    Remove the HDMI cable (out) to the speakers from the receiver.
    Connect regular speaker wire from the receiver to the speakers.
    Of course, remove the (now extra) HDMI cable from the tv.
    That will remove the loop.

    No Sound Issues

    Try the audio out. Run the audio to a receiver to see if the audio is there. If it is, then I'd leave it hooked up to the receiver and save yourself some money. If there is not any low level audio out then I'd fix the set. The only Sony set I've ever seen that was not worth fixing was a 32" model from the early 1990's that had bad picture tubes after only 5 years. I am a Sony factory trained tech. Good Luck!
