Question about RCA Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

I have a RCA RT 2906 home theater, I can’t figure out how to get sound out of my tv thru Netflix, it only works with Sat/Cable on the Cable input thru HDMI, I hooked up the TV sound with a optical cable, is there any way I can change the TV input from Analog to Optical with this particular model to get sound when I stream Netflix, any help would be appreciated. I have a LG smart tv to be specific.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: I just installed a Bose Cinemate II system. HDMI

No,you are not mistaken actually.I really don't have much to offer though.I just want to let you know that I have seen many problems with HDMI cables and no sound.HDMI does in fact transfer audio/video.Even though I do not like to use Wikipedia because anyone can edit the info,I check and see if it is accurate first and does give the best descriptions and is the quickest and easiest to find.This is a newer technology.Any new technology is usually not figured out until about year 5.In year 3,they are able to get the kinks worked out,but year 4 is already in production.They start designing and building the best version for year 5 next.Although 5 years isn't always achieved,it is more of a minimum to see the best possible of the technology.Happens with cars,TV's,VCR's,etc.Prices come down as everyone who wants it is greatly reduced by then also.Anyhow,here is a link to some info about HDMI.Scroll down to Communication channel protocols.Under TMDS there is some relevant info.You may not understand the terminology but basically it seems that there is an internal automatic muting with certain changes in the audio signal.It just sounds to me like the automatic mute is too sensitive right now and will improve over time.There is also some encryption taking place which is basically taking the output,scrambling it,sending it somewhere,and then being unscrambled and reproduced identically.Same as wireless internet.With all the various products being used,everyone has their own way of doing something.Since it isn't exactly made with exact specifications,there are many variations to interpret.If someone were to have ALL components made by 1 company,it would most likely work much better.How many people have that kind of setup though?Very few.There is not 1 company which makes everything they produce,better than everyone else's.Some make better radios,some TV's,etc.Right now,some of the better TV's are Samsung,LG,Vizio.Some better phones are AT&T,Panasonic.Bose has been at the top of the food chain for years for audio for that reason also.They do audio,nothing else,so they can put everything into it.I know this is a bit wordy but that's why I am here.To inform and educate people about things which they most likely don't understand and encourage them to spread the word.Hope you understand this anyhow.Basically,depending on how old your PS3 is,there may be compatibilty issues.With HDMI changing/upgrading rapidly,if your PS3 is an earlier version,it could simply be compatibility because PS3's even were changed as they sold more.If you have any questions or need more help,just comment here and I will get an autolink to your post and reply ASAP.Here is the link for HDMI characteristics/operation.Good luck,Greg

Hello,
There are two things that I can suggest.
1-Test your optical cables to make sure they a good on a known working source because they are very fragile and break very easily.
2-Try to eliminate the use of optical output from tv to receiver. There may be a problem from the HDMI to optical conversion at the tv. Instead, try running the audio directly from the source to the receiver, and let the tv deal with video input only.
Hope this helps,
Good Luck.

You should have the HDMI plugged into the Home theater unit. The theater unit then is attached to the TV using the HDMI out.
The home theater unit passes the HDMI through to the TV while playing the audio for you.
You will likely need to select the correct source on your RT2910.
Here is a link to the manual.

See the section entitled "Connecting to HDMI Components" for an illustration of what I have described above.

I have a 42 in LG HDTV and a dish satellite and a LG surround sound system how to I hook these up to hear sound while watching the sat


See if your satellite receiver has a digital out socket in the back ( optic / coaxial ). If so get yourself an optic/coaxial cable and link the TV out to your LG Home Theaters optic/coaxial In.
Now if your Satellite receiver does not have a digital out for sound you will have to connect the TV's audio out to the LG Home Theater Systems Aux / SAT / CBL input using appropriate cables .Either 3.5mm phono to 2RCA or 2 RCA to 2 RCA cables.

To listen to Tv program sound through your home theater system you will have to connect a pair of RCA to RCA cables (Red and White pair ) from the audio out socket of the TV ( some times three sockets Yellow/Red/White labeled Monitor out. Ignore the yellow as it is video out ) to the Aux or CBL/Sat input of the LG system. Then to listen to the sound through your LG HT system switch the Input selector of the LG to Aux or CBL/SAT. Will work for sure.

Just need to know how to hook up to tv to get sound


If you don't have a cable box or satellite receiver, you will use the "Audio Out" or "Monitor Out" from the TV to any audio input on the receiver. It's just a standard RCA cable or if you have an "Optical input" on the receiver, use that. If you are using a cable box or sat, the audio would come from the cable/sat receiver by standard RCA, Optical, or Digital Coaxial, whichever your AV receiver will support. Hope this helps. If you need further help, post a comment and I can walk you thru it.

No Sound In Home Theater with Dish HDTV DVR Dual Mode Remote Connection


HDTV is not carried via coaxial cable from tuner, you need HDMI or the 5 RCA cables that are different colors. I forget if they are called component or composite, I think they are called composite, the R and W are sound. If you run the HDMI or composite cables to your TV, there should be a variable out or audio out on the back of the TV that outputs ANY sound coming into the TV, like Wii, DVD, tv, etc. So if you want to listen to tv sound, just pipe the audio out to the receivers available input and turn it up. Cant be used with mag input (turntable) all others are compatible. Did this answer your question? Sat cables are usually kept under 130 ft from the dish, and the dish receiver can output coaxial signal over 400ft on RG-6 cable. HDMI is limited and can get very expensive. Does your sat box have a coaxial digital out (orange RCA) you can use that if your receiver can read it, usually associated with the DVD input or video input, but only for digital encoded programs.

Hooking up the RT 2600


connect all the devices into the receiver inputs then there should be 1 set of outputs to the tv. This is to play everything using surround sound as all the video and audio is going through your recevier... if you want to do HD and have surround sound you will need a new receiver as this one has no hdmi inputs or outputs.

Hooking up video


I am assuming that you are using a surround sound system?If so on the back of the satellite receiver you will have RCA cables labled yellow ,red,white uuse an rca cable to run from the output on the back of the sat box to an rca input on the surround sound unit.the inputs should be labled on the back of the surround sound unit.once you have the sat box plugged in look for the output on the surround sound (rca cables) run one set of rca cables to the rca cable input of the Tv.on the original tv remote select the tv input that is the cable from the surround sound is plugged in to . make sure the surround sound unit input is selected to the input that the sat box is plugged into.this will give you surround sound from your satellite receiver,repeat with your DVD player plugging the DVD rca cable output to another empty input on the surround sound.to switch between the sat box (satellite TV) to DvD select another input on the surround sound unit.Try to correspond the units you are plugging into the surround sound to the correct name of the component on the back of the surround sound unit to avoid confussion.any questions,Im here to help.If this works rate me FIXYA! if it helps.GOOD LUCK!

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.
