Since I bought the System, I have never been able to experience the surround sound of the System purely thru the TV i.e. just regular cable tv programs/shows etc
Only when I select it for DVD or for Music does it work.
Isn't the point of the System to provide the Home Theater experience at all times.
I looked at the Manual, and it makes no reference to this point.
I have spent the last few days trying to get this set-up properly. Getting closer.
Connect 2 phono plugs (red and white i think they are) from your tv, should be "audio out" then connect the other end of these cables to "audio in" on the samsung. If you choose "AUX" on the "source" on the samsung, you can get anything thats on your TV to play through the surround sound. I'm still having problems with the DVD side of things. I connected them using the HDMI cable and the sound from the samsung plays only through the surround sound, not the TV. You CAN selct HDMI Audio "ON" but then you get no sound through the surround speakers.
Basically connected phono plugs from TV AUDIO OUT to SAMSUNG AUDIO in and you the AUX on the source menu on the samsung. This will play anything on your tv through the speakers.

Hi I have an RCA Truflat TV and a philips Surround sound dvd all in one system and a jvc dish system. I have had my surround working up until my nephews messed with it and hooked up a wii system to it. Now I get no sound on my surround sound and I have tried rearranging the cables but I can not get any sound from the surround sound and for the life of me I can not rember how I originaly had it set up. can you help?
This seems to be a problem that has to do with your HDMI audio output. First check in your TV setting if audio out is selected on your correct HDMI port. Than check if your receiver is able to receive audio via HDMI (i assume you used the HDMI connection). Some receivers have HDMI IN connections but are not able to receive audio on it, the latest receivers/sets do have this feature. If your receiver doesnot support audio IN via HDMI you can only do one thing, connect the stereo audio-out of your TV to an AUX IN connection on your receiver.
See below for the correct setup to get the best clarity sound possible.
From Set top box:
Audio: optical or digital coax cable output --> jvc system Input
Video: hdmi output--> jvc system input
From JVC System:
Video: HDMI output---> TV HDMI input
only accepting HDMI input from JVC System.
This will provide you will sound from your jvc system at all times. Your JVC system is made to be used as a hub. So essentially what you are trying to do is connect all components into the JVC system. Then only connect the video portion to your TV. The TV itself should NOT be emitting sound.
Note: You may need to turn off the speakers in the TV setup menu to acheive no sound from the TV. This will make for the ultimate experience.
Typically you need to consider the surround system as the central point for sound distribution (and in newer receivers, the distribution point for video signal as well). So you need to think of your TV and Satellite as sound sources and connect them to the IN side of your surround sound system. From the back of your TV then, look for the Audio OUT (commonly Red for right and White (or black) for Left. Connect these to the IN on the back of the surround system. Likewise for your satellite box. Then make sure you select the appropriate source on the surround system. If the system supports the video signal, you can route that as well. Beware that you'll need some sort of simulation (provided by the Phillips unit) to upconvert stereo to surround ... check the manual online. If you post model numbers for the Phillips and satellite units, we might be able to direct you more specifically (provided we can find manuals online)
How can I get surround sound to work on my tv. When I pull up my menu and go to audio the SRS Trusurround XT is not in bold so I cant figure how to connect it so I can have the surround sound coming from the system and not from the tv. Please help.
