Question about Sharp Aquos LC-42D62U 42 in. LCD HDTV

HDMI Connection to Ooptical Output

I have 3 devices connected with HDMI cables (Cable, PS3 & 360), I then connected an Optical from my Aquos to my Home Theater, and nothing... but when I go directly into the television with my Cable, skipping the box, the Optical wire works fine... Is there an issue that overrides the optical when using an HDMI connection... If so, how can I get all of my components to play through my surround system, without having to switch wires each time....

    have the exact same problem as you, but audio from blu-rays playing from the ps3 travels over the optical with hdmi, just games and desktop don't work. I'm sure that it's something to do with it defaulting to pcm 2 44.1 kHz

    Thanks, that solution worked for me, but it also worked for games & the desktop, if you just change the options in the audio section of the menu, and change the outsource to be optical it works for the whole system, no sound through the tv, but sounds better through home theater anyway... Had it on playing Uncharted waters this week, and the whole room was shaking as gun fire and grenades were exploding, thanks for the idea of the splitter, saves me from swapping wires each time I play...

    Thanks, Duane

Talked with Sharp, it's a issue with hdmi and optical out, best fix for it that I'm currently using is a 3-way toslink splitter, cost a little of nothing and work perfectly, you just turn the dial to the signal you want to play off of. Clicky

Why doesn't the ARC TV sound work through the HDMI cable? Is it because the KDL-52XBR7 only has the Bravia Sync and no ARC support?

How to hock up surround sound to tv


I'm sorry that the solution has to be so general, but there are not sufficient details in the problem to give the exact answer :(

If the television has an audio output, which would have a red and white hole and say out(put), you would connect the red and white audio cables to the home theater in the corresponding red and white input a/v holes

If you are connecting all of your devices to the home theater for picture and audio, you are connecting from the outputs of all of your devices into the corresponding inputs of your home theater, and then connecting one hdmi cable from the output of your home theater into one of the hdmi inputs of your television.

You can also choose to connect your devices to your television just for video (so hdmi cable or yellow cable or red, green, blue cable to the television's inputs) and to the home theater for sound (another hdmi cable from your device to your home theater or white and red audio a/v cables from your devices to your home theater).

How do you attach an x-box to the yamaha natural sound home theater system dvr s200??


Hi,

You need to use an optical cable to connect your xbox to your home theater system.
This can be done 2 ways

1) You can connect the optical cable directly from the xbox to the home theater system.

2) You can also connect your xbox to your TV by HDMI and then connect your TV by optical cable to your home theater system.

This has the added benefit of all the devices that use your TV being able to use the home theater system in the same way the xbox is using it.

I want to connect the Audio from tv to Surrounding audio system


For connections of audio, so that you can hear all tv audio through the
surround system, connect either an optical audio cable or red & white
analog audio cables from the tv to the home theater. If you are using
optical audio, there is a plug on back of tv labeled for digital audio
output and an input on the surround sound system. If you plan on using
analog red and white, use the PROG OUT red and white output jacks on the
back of the tv to the AUX input on the home theater.

For video connections, to get HD you will need to be using either HDMI or
Component cables. HDMI is the cable that will provided 1080p signal (the
best HD signal), but if the source does not output 1080p, then your tv
will not display 1080p. Most cable boxes output at 1080i or 720p when on
HD stations. This signal still provides great picture quality, but HDMI is
not needed to get these HD signals. You can use component cables for your
cable box and the DVD player output to the tv for video. HDMI might give
you a slightly better picture quality but the signal will be the same.

To make the connection, you will want to connect from the cable box to the
tv (component or hdmi). Also from the home theater system to the tv using
hdmi or the video cables from component (red, blue, & green cables).

We hope this information is helpful to you.

Thank You,

No surround sound when attaching hdmi to TV


Try running the optical TOSLINK cable from the TV to the receiver. If the TV doen't have a digital optical output, then try going into the menu on your cable box and setting the audio output to the digital optical out. Also check your TV menu and make sure NETCOMMAND is diabled. Some of your newer HDTV have Netcommand that allows the TV to control other devices through the HDMI cable.

Panasonic 1080p Plasma TH-42PZ80U Home Theater Setup Question


Hey Gamer1827,

While I personally can't provide you with any model-specific home theater system recommendations, there are a couple of common ways that you can generally configure your home theater.

Connecting several devices directly to the HTIB system may typically allow you to minimize the number of remote controls necessary, as long as the HTIB system supports the use of a universal remote. Should you not necessarily care if you have to change back-and-forth between two remotes however, you may have a wider variety of possible configurations available.

In order to use only HDMI cable connections to set up your home theater, you most likely would need an HTIB system with three HDMI ports: one for your TV, one for your PS3 and one for your cable box. Each device would require a separate HDMI cable running between it and the receiver. This option (in theory) would allow you to use one universal remote to control each device, assuming that they are all compatible with the same remote.

Another common configuration you might wish to try requires you to connect your cable box and PS3 directly to your TV. By doing so however, you might limit yourself to using an optical digital audio cable to make the connection between your TV and many HTIB systems. In this configuration, the cable box and PS3 would again have their own separate HDMI cables, while the optical digital audio cable would need to be run from the Digital Audio-Out port on the back of your TV to the Digital Audio-In port on the receiver. This option essentially treats the HTIB system as an expansion device, instead of the center of your home theater configuration.

Should you need any additional information or suggestions, remember that you may always speak with a sales representative at your local Best Buy™ store for further assistance.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Hooking up home theater


Run a regular RCA type audio cable from your TV audio out to your Home Theatre audio in. That is what I have done recently with my Samsung LCD and Home Theater. You then have to put your Home Theater on Aux 1 or Aux 2 to get the sound from TV. Ensure your TV's volume is off.
