SOURCE: Macbook Pro DVI---> HDMI + Digital Optical Out = Problem w/ Sound

On the Sony The HDMI takes "priority" over all others, that's why you loose audio. If you run your DVI/HDMI to the TV and optical to the soundbar that would fix your issue. If your TV does not have Multiple HDMI inputs, you can get a DVI/Component adapter for your MBP then run it to the TV, or, If you have to have HDMI just to have HDMI, you can get a 2:1 HDMI switch and still have optical to your soundbar. Make sense? If youneed more help, just post a comment and I'll help some more.

SOURCE: Vizio SV470XVT will not output Dolby 5.1 from optical out..

TV's only will output 5.1 from HD stations. If you have a DVD player, XBOX 360, etc connected through HDMI, then the TV will only send stereo PCM through the optical out.

SOURCE: I have an audio problem with my TX-SR502.

If your remote also controls the Cable Box you might want to look at its audio settings. Maybe you muted it.

BTW: it would be a good idea to also run video and analog audio from the cable box directly to the TV if it has speakers so you can watch and listen independent of the Onkyo.

SOURCE: NO OPTICAL SOUND I connected HDMI from reciever

Hello,
I think your problem might be at the digital audio setup at the receiver. To fix this, go into the setup under digital audio and make sure that the input that your connected to is set to optical, not analog or coaxial. Example if your plugged into video 1, make sure that the audio setting corresponds to the optical input where your connected. Video 1-optical-1.
Good Luck

If i buy a soundbar with hdmi connection will my tv need to have hdmi ARC to work with the soundbar


Hi, it's recommended than both have ARC HDMI ports, so you can control sound bar from TV too, but if this HDMI port is not available at TV, the optical or digital audio output can be used instead to get hi fidelity audio.

How do I connect sound bar to a TV with no optical cable port ?


Hello... most sound bars have more than one input, such as RCA (red and white), digital (orange) and HDMI (which requires an ARC HDMI input/output on the TV. Look at the back of your TV and see what's available. You will get the best audio from the HDMI or the digital. I hope this helps!

I have a Dynex L4210A and was wondering is there a converter to plug into an HDMI port on the TV to make it an HDMI ARC?


Included is a link that may confirm what you already know, but it confirms the two way connection of ARC.

HDMI ARC is not available from the Dynex

The only best choice for is the optical connection to the sound system from the TV. Optical is digital and will contain in the data transfer the audio format. Make sure in the TV settings that the preferred format is set.

There are adapters but anything RCA type connectors will only downgrade the audio quality.

Have lg 55ls5700 tv trying to connect samsung hw-f450


I suspect that the TV you have does not support the ARC function that the sound bar has. What you may have to do is use the Optical In from the sound bar to the TV and you should be good to go. You may have to change the TV's settings to use the Optical In though. So you should end up with the BluRay Player connected to the TV via an HDMI cable, the sound bar connected to the TV via the Optical In using a fiber optic cable. Hope this helps.

How do I connect my Panasonic SC-HTB500 sound bsr to my Panasonic TH-42PX75U television with an HDMI cable?


If you have a set top box (blu-ray, dvd, cable) with HDMI Out, then you need a pair of HDMI cables. Connect one from the HDMI Out of the set top box to the HDMI In of the sound bar. Then connect the HDMI Out of the sound bar to the HDMI In of the TV.

If you only want to use the sound bar as an external speaker system for the TV, then you should get a digital audio cable (fiber optic cable). Connect this to the Digital Audio Out on the TV (below HDMI ports) and to the Digital Audio In of the sound bar.

I hope this helps. You can find the manual of the TV here: http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-electronics/support/Televisions/Plasma-TVs/model.TH-42PX75U . The TV also has analog (RCA) audio out jacks labeled Prog Out on the bottom left of the connection panel; the sound bar however doesn't have RCA audio in jacks.

Cindy Wells
(since there are no HDMI out jacks on the TV, there is no other way to connect the sound bar.)
