TV Connectivity
The issue of connectivity between the PS3 and the display is very complex and depends on the type of TV (Analog, Digital or HD Ready), the maker of TV (until recently, only Toshiba TVs have component AV connections as standard in Europe, most other Euro TV sets use SCART which can not carry an HD signal) and specification of TV (the very latest HD Ready TV sets have wider connectivity options than earlier HD "capable" TVs from the same manufacturer which may have lacked HDMI), and finally the configuration of the PS3 model purchased.

SOURCE: No signal is coming out

Page 42:

Function Setup: Set to ON to pass through HDMI In to HDMI Out

Page 49:

The number of HDMI components is over the limit. ?? Not sure what that means but dropping one HDMI might be a good test.

How to connect my hdtv to surround for audio

It looks like from my searching you have an optical link on your tv and your reciver. You should just have to choose that as your output on the tv and your input on the reciver. It should be labled something like spdif. In my opinion it is the best cable ever until hdmi came out now its still really good.

I have a new TCL 55 inch smart wiffi ROKU TV what do I have to do to connect laptop so tv will be monitor wirelessly

You cannot have the TV as a wireless monitor for a XP machine.
Your ROKU TV will have HDMI input, but XP dos not have the ability to produce HDMI.
Using the composite input via a converter from the VGA output is possible.
see such a device here.

How to connect my tv to optical outlet

What audio-outputs does your TV have? SPDIF? 3.5 millimeter stereo-jack? White/Red RCA "post-and-collar" sockets?

What inputs does the sound bar have? (Same choices as above.)

Note that you might need a 3.5mm to stereo-RCA cable.

I am getting no sound from my Samsung Blu ray and it is not the mute button. What else could be wrong?

Have you had a look in the menus assocated with the sound then goto additional settings then select SPDIF then try selecting PCM instead of any other setting here if that doesn't work what about getting a SOUNDBAR and using a TOSLINK cable to connect the optical output on the TV to the SOUNDBAR and make sure that the power lead is plugged in and plugged into a mains socket and turned on then you should have sound if that doesn't work then go back into sount->additional settings->SPDIF then select a setting that shows up after connecting the tv to the sound bar and and hit enter then return return return and you should have sound. It is not likely that the problem is in your Bul-ray player just to see try it in some other TV or it might be the cable it's self don't use a skinney HDMI cable but a thick HDMI cable as some cables don't have all connections.

Panasonic home cinema connection issues

What other audio/video outputs does the TV have? Does it have an HDMI port? If so, connect TV to your home theater using HDMI to HDMI.

Sound output through hdmi

DVI is "Digital Video Interface". No Audio is transferred through this type of connection - even if one end of the cable is HDMI.

BEST solution would be to purchase a video card with HDMI output.

Alternate solution would be to run audio from rear audio jack to TV (assuming you have an input on the TV that will accept it)
