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....
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

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).
Hi, You have connected from PC to TV right??? 1.To get the video you have to connect to TV 2.Please take a separate cables for to listen audio and to watch video, for audio connect cables from DVD Player to Home Theater you can listen the audio for video please connect the HDMI video to TV Where You can enjoy both.
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).
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.
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.

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.
