Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-52W4100 52 in. LCD HDTV

Open Question

The Vizio manual says to use the HDMI ARC for the best surround sound but, my Sony TV doesn't have the HDMI ARC listed on the connections. Is the Bravia system with the CEC the same as the HDMI ARC?

Directv Genie Satalite Receiver Sony TV KDL-52W4100 Sony Blue Ray player Vizio Sound Bar S4051 HDMI ARC vs. BRAVIA CEC Vizio Sound Bar compatibility and hook up options using HDMI?

SOURCE: audio via hdmi

I had the same problem with the same configuration. In addition to the HDMI which is (DVD and Audio OUT only by the way) you need to connect the TV to the DVD through a high quality SCART cable as well. Remember to connect the SCART cable only while both the TV and DVD are switched off. To get the TV sound out of the DVD surround sound you need to click the FUNCTION key on the DZ230 remote a couple of times till you get the word TV on its screen, this is when you should hear the TV sound coming out of your surround sound as expected. Good luck.

Got your post, I will work with the model #s. Get back with you soon. Also a tip for now: HDMI carries true digital video and audio so you may not need the optic cables.

SOURCE: No sound on pc connection

HDMI outputs from devices such as DVD players do carry both video and audio, but the HDMI output from your computer video card only carries video. You'll need to connect a cable from the computer sound output to the TV as well.

SOURCE: surround sound problems

you need an optical cable which it's sort of mentioned in the manual, but because of the multitude of possible ways to connect the TV to the sound surround, I did not figure out either.
I got my optical cable at BestBuy for about $45.00

There is a problem with the processor. The only way to resolve this issue is to replace the main board. It is called the A board in your TV.

There are two for this model and the correct one will depend on what your serial number is.

Part numbers are as follows:
part # 185709211 for Serial #
1,000,001 - 1,350,000
1,700,001 - 1,750,000
1,800,001 - 1,804,270
1,804,271 - 1,818,372
1,818,373 - 1,830,000
list price: $504.87 core charge: $680.00

part # 185709231 for all other serial numbers
list price: $505.87 core charge: $600.00

I have a Sony bluray surround sound and lg smart tv, I can't play my Apple TV sound through my hts, all my connections are hdmi and both systems have arc, please help?


Is your Apple TV connected to the Sony or directly to your TV? If directly connected to the Sony HTS ARC shouldn't be needed and you should have audio. If that's the case check the Apple TV settings to be sure it isn't set for s/pdif output. If connected to the TV then the TV should be able to put a s/pdif signal on the HDMI ARC pin but perhaps there's no way to assign it to the HDMI input coming from the HTS? It may be going to the ARC pin on the Apple TV HDMI input which won't give you any sound. Normally ARC is intended to put the s/pdif signal from the TV's internal tuner on the HDMI cable from the HTS so the HTS can play TV sound without having to tun a separate Toslink cable from the TV s/pdif output to the HTS. One other thing: Early HDMI cables do not include the ARC wire so be sure you have ARC capable cables. Look in your TV documentation to see if there is a way to assign the ARC output to a different incoming HDMI input if the Apple TV is connected directly to the TV. If not you may need to resort to a Toslink optical cable from your TV to an optical input on your HTS. Or actually running that cable from Apple TV to the HTS would be better since it's possible it could carry surround sound. Most TV's optical outputs are limited to the 2 channel sound the TV can accept.

Santo dp32649 want to hook up surround sound but sound won't come thru speakers in TV mode


If you expect the sound to come back through the HDMI connection when watching the TV as the source, e.g. using an antenna, then both the TV and the surround sound processor need to support Audio Return Channel (ARC), a feature new to HDMI 1.4. Further, most TV's even if HDMI 1.4 compliant support it on only one of the inputs - check the setup guide. To accomplish the same thing with older equipment, simply run a separate audio connection from the TV back to the surround sound processor.

Trouble setting up sony soundbar surround sound, is tv arc compatable?


Arc ready is when there is electricity plugged into the TV,There is only one HDMI cable and that is the one you have. Cause all new TV's come with these cables.If you are using Av cables for the sound it will not work ,you must only use HDMI cable's.Cause some or most new TV's with HDMI dont like to use Av cables with HDMI,so if you havw something else that uses Av cables plug it out and sound will work.

I have this receiver hooked up to a Vizio LED tv and a Vizio Blue Ray using HDMI cables. The surround sound works from the speakers while watching a dvd (HDMI -1 connection) but I have no surround sound...


AV cables don't pass surround sound through, they are pretty much just left and right stereo. You need to turn pro logic on on the reciever to "pretend" to play surround. The better option of course would be to use a digital signal like another HDMI cable or digital optical audio from the cable box, if thats what your using.

I have an rca surround sound system and how do I install of to my vizio


Your best option would be to connect all your components requiring video to be hooked directly to tv through HDMI in or component in. With a component hook up, you will have to provide audio with either digtal optical or composite cables. You then would want to provide sound to your surround sound by a digital optical out or composite out to the input of your surround sound.

No play back from HDTV to threater system


Do you have set-top-box or antenna-cable directly to TV?
You have connected TV with received via HDMI, but that won't work in this direction - TV has HDMI INput only, not output.
You can use HDMI to connect HDMI-out on DVD player for example to HDMI-in on receiver and HDMI-out of receiver to HDMI-in on TV.
But to get sound from TV to the receiver, use spdif optical or coax cable if TV supports that - this way you will get surround sound.
But also your connection via analog white/red RCA plugs should work, but only for stereo sound.
