I think the problem is we don't understand your question.

Perhaps this is the answer you seek..

The surround sound is output from your TV as just the left/right signals. So there are just 2 RCA's to connect from the TV audio monitor outputs to the HTS input. The unit will then decode, split and amplify the signals for your multiple speakers.

    Check that the source material from the TV is actually encoded with surround, movies are usually encoded but news/documenaties are not.

    Check you don't have the TV switched to mono.

    The rear channels are meant to be very subtle, there wont always be sounds coming from them.

    >the tv is switched to mono

You need cords for this, make sure you have all of your correct cords in the socket, and if you are 100% positive this is so, contact your seller and tell him your case.

Unable to get TV sound and dvd sound through the surround sound speakers with samsung compatible tv and blu ray player

Hi,Even though you have not mentioned about the cabling connections you have done, for the sake of correct connection I describe all the possible cabling alternatives to you..You can select whichever you want..

TO WATCH DVD ON THE TV:
** Receiver's "AUDIO and VIDEO OUTPUT as " 2xRCA Audio+1x Video " or "Optic Cable OUTPUT or " HDMI Output " of your Home Theater Receiver (whichever you want ,based on the existing sockets and necessary cables on your hand )
** AT TV side : you need to connect "Audio+ Video input s " as can either be : 3xRCA jacks or "Optic cable input " or HDMI IN connector of your TV ,
** than just switch to DVD mode on Receiver and play DVD
*
You can use "HDMI" connections as well but sometimes HDMI creates problem on Audio..

TO LISTEN YOUR TV ON SURROUND SYS.
** AT TV side : you need to connect "Audio Output " as can either be : 2xRCA jacks or "Optic cable output" or HDMI connector of your TV ,
** to Receiver's "TV input "or "AUX input" or "Optic Cable input"
or HDMI of your Home Theater Receiver (whichever you want ,based on the existing sockets and necessary
cables on your hand )
** than just switch to respective SOURCE mode on
Receiver corresponding the connector you have used on the back of Receiver ..
*
You can use "HDMI" connections as well but sometimes HDMI creates problem on Audio..


Pls remember.."IN " goes to "OUT" or vice versa..all the times..

There you go..Both Tv and DVD sound are on the
Receiver as SURROUNDING SOUND .By this means ,whatever you watch on the TV will come thru your Receiver's SURROUNDING SOUND speakers as well .

Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know.
Take care

I have succesfully connected my dynex 32" lcd hdtv 720p 60hz to my rogers digital box and my xbox but i only have room to connect my audio cables for my surround sound speakers to my tv cables there is no...

What cables are you using for the XBOX and the digital box? What surround sound system are you using (what receiver)? Which model of Dynex 32" TV do you have? Looking at the DX-L32-10A, I can connect both devices to the TV and then the audio out to the surround sound system.

If HDMI, then that will carry the audio to the TV and then you would need an audio cable from the audio out on the TV to the surround sound speakers. Similarly, if you use component video and the audio cable combination, there are 2 component video jacks and 3 audio-in jacks on the rear of the TV. Then connect another cable from the audio out of the TV to the surround sound system. (This TV has one audio out and a headphone jack.)

If you previously had the audio going from the Rogers digital box directly to the surround sound system, you need to reroute things unless there are two or more sets of audio in jacks on the surround sound system. Some surround sound system can take several HDMI in cables and then route it to the TV on a HDMI out port.

Without more information, I can't be sure of the best option for your cables.

I hope this gets you started and please provide more information for additional suggestions.

How do i connect my acer2930 to my surround sound

The way to connect this is to use a s-video cable, providing the laptop has an s-video socket. If your tv is a up to date flat screen it may have an input for the 15 pin connector. Sound would need to be handled by plugging in a set of speakers to the pc, or connecting it to suitable audio equipment.

How can i get sound from my Tv to go through my surround sound.

If you are using a "cable box" or "sat receiver" the audio will go from the cable/sat to the surround system with either optical, digital coaxial or analog RCA to the TV input on your surround system. If it does not have an input specifically labeled "TV" you can use vid 1 vid 2 etc. just make sure that when you wish to listen to the tv on surround that the surround system is on the correct input.

If you are using just an "off-air" antenna, your cables would go from the TV "monitor out" which will be either optical or analog RCA to the surround system and the appropriate input. Hope this isn't too confusing, if you need more help, post a comment and I will help some more. Hope this does the trick

Panasonic HDMI surround system problem

The HDMI cable connection on your system is a video out to your TV.
To get audio from the TV so you can hear it through the system, you need to add a cable from the audio out of your TV to the "aux" input on the panasonic system.
This is most likely a red and white connection which will give you stereo, or pro-logic surround from the home theater system.
