No sound to stereo through TV audio out.I did notice that if I turn up the volume on the TV I get some volume through the surround speakers however if I mute the TV there is no surround speaker sound again. Havent used this feature since having the set two years. I did just accidently hook up the TV audio out to the reciever pre-amp out and vcr out before noticing the TV audio input jacks. Could I have fried something in the TV? Thanks for any help.

Obviously make sure your stereo mode selector is set to AUX and the volume on the stereo is turned up at least a little when you test it.
If you still have no luck then try increasing the volume on the TV as well. You may have it set so that the level of the audio signal leaving the rear output connectors on the TV varies with the TV volume. That way if your TV volume was turned down or muted when you tested it, then you would not hear anything coming through your stereo.
There should be a setting in the AUDIO OPTIONS menu of your TV where you can switch between a VARIABLE AUDIO OUTPUT and a FIXED AUDIO OUTPUT level.
With the FIXED audio output level, you control the volume of the TV audio coming through the stereo speakers with the stereo remote only.
One simple way to accomplish this is to run RCA audio cables from the red and white (left and right) AUDIO OUT jacks on the back of your TV, and plug those into the red and white (left and right) AUX INPUT connectors on the back of your stereo.
Then just select AUX on the input mode selector of your stereo and you will hear the TV audio through the stereo speakers.
Make sure your TV volume is turned up about halfway way and then adjust the volume on the stereo to your liking.
In the AUDIO OPTIONS of your TV menu you can usually select whether you want the TV speaker to be OFF or ON. That way you can just control the stereo volume with your stereo remote to hear the TV audio.
Or you can select VARIABLE OUTPUT LEVEL for the rear audio output connectors on the TV, and then you can control the volume with the TV remote and just leave the stereo volume set at one volume all the time.
There are many other ways to hook up sound through your stereo, that is just one cheap and simple one.

the audio comes out of the Direct TV reciever, OR Audio OUT on the television. Some TVs that take the signal HDMI, do not put sound back out, and in that case, sound signal must come from the reciever box.
Each component, like DVD of Blu Ray will need to have a signal wired to the stereo unit.
the hdmi jack on the tv is an INPUT jack, not an output. to use your reciever for tv sound, you have to find the audio output on the tv (most do not have an audio out, but some higher end tv's have a fiber-optic digital out, which may or may not be compatible with your surround sound reciever)
if your tv does not have an audio out, the only way to get the tv sound into the styereo is to use a tuner box, like a cable box or satelite box. tuner boxes always have either hdmi or stereo audio outputs.
to use hdmi with your surround sound, you are supposed to run HDMI OUTPUT from the tuner box or disk player into the HDMI INPUT of the stereo, and then run the HDMI OUTPUT of the stereo into the HDMI INPUT of the tv.
your reciever does not have hdmi, so the audio is not going to be true DD+ or DTS for broadcast tv.
if your dvd/blue ray player has digital optical spdif, this can be used to transfer the encoded DD+/DTS digital audio.
the besat way to run your tv audio through the reciever is to hook up the dvd/blue ray player up with (perferrably) digital optical spdif, composite spdif or (least favorably) through the stereo stereo analog inputs on the reciever for "dvd" audio in and hook the video from the dvd/blue ray up to the corresponding "dvd" video component input on the reciever.
this way is only going to get your dvd/blue ray sound, next you need to hook up your cable box to the reciever so that you can get broadcast tv sound. hook up the cable box audio to the "tv" stereo analog audio ins, and hook the video to the corresponding "tv" video component inputs.
the component video inputs have separate jacks for red, green and blue ( labeled "Y" "Pb" and "Pr") and are capable of carrying a 1080p full hd signal. use the component video outputs on the reciever to output the video signal to a component video input on the tv, using the receiver's input selector to change the video source.
Since you have it hooked up to the stereo system, you need to go to on screen audio set up and turn off the TV built-in speakers (you will be listening the TV sound through your stereo system speakers), then go to the audio output set up and set it to 'variable' so the audio output of the TV's RCA audio out put will vary with the volume control of the TV (not all TV will alow this function), you will need to set the stereo volume to certain level (around 9~10 O'clock setting) since the sound coming from the TV will be controlled by the TV remote volume control. You can otherwise set the TV output to be at 'fixed' level, which means the sound output of the TV will not be controlled by the TV remote volume control, you will use the stereo remote volume control to adjust the sound level instead. I hope this is clear to you.
well I have a work around and a solution possibly. first go threw your menu audio and verify external speakers are not turned off. if there is no setting or it is turned on already try a different video/audio input if nothing else if you have good picture you can use a stereo reciever to play the sound you do not have to input audio into the tv if you have surround sound go straight from your device(dvd, vcr,cable box etc.) to your sereo reciever just the audio plugs (red and white, not yellow unless you have a monitor out from your stereo in which you conect all three to the stereo input then one cable from the monitor out on the stereo to the tv in put
if you hook the low-level audio-out from the tv to an input to the stereo unit, whatever you play on tv will send audio to surround/stereo reciever unit. look on back of tv for red &white AUDIO OUTPUT terminals. plug red/white audio cables from tv to the back of your stereo & plug into audio input of an open source on stereo (tv/video,aux. in,etc.) good luck!
Well are you ready for this I hope you can under stand if not maybe I can draw a diagram. Starting with your stereo take the component video out and goto component on the back of your tv to component in then the stereo coaxial in to the digatl audio out on the DVD player then DVD player anntena out to TV anntena in then DVD anntena in to reciever anntena out and Sat cable to reciever. also s-video on Dvd componet to s-video on TV DVD player Audio out to Audio in on TV. Set Stereo to TV and DVD player to channal 3 or do auto scan and TV will work on 3 with the reciever and also TV works with Video 2 I hope this works for you good luck
I had what may have been a similar problem and even talked to Westinghouse to see what I was doing wrong. Woman suggested there was a problem with the audio output port and suggested I exchange tv for another one. When the new one had the same problem, I discovered that to get audio out requires the volume to be turned way up on the tv (set speaker preference to external only if you don't want sound from tv speakers as well). If you have a digital optical connection on both the tv and the home theater, the sound output is independent from the tv setting and is easier to work with.
