But I am not able to get any audio from HT for any TV channels I play or even from PS3.
Any idea how can I get it work?
Check the audio settings on the TV to see if there is anything about the audio output (whether to set it to fixed/variable, to enable or disable, etc).
Are you using the internal tuner for TV? Or do you have a cable/satellite box?
The optical cable should go in with a solid click.
Yes, all cables are connected tightly. I did selected TV audio settings to Audio out instead of TV speakers. There is no other option on TV for audio related things. And on my HT, its selected to TV...actually it automatically selects this option because of Sony Bravia sync capability. For all other options, TV speakers are activated and I head sound from TV then.
This is a complete guess, but this may have to do with ARC (hdmi audio return channel) compatability. If you have your hdmi cable plugged into the input labeled ARC on your TV then the tv will send the audio out over HDMI instead of optical. If your HT doesn't support ARC, then you would get no sound.
I don't know for sure that your TV has ARC, but I would assume it does since its pretty much the top of the line LED available.
The TV supports ARC. So if this is an ARC vs. optical issue/conflict, easy tests would be:
1) remove the optical cable
2) remove the HDMI cable
I'm certain that the manuals probably outline connections and setup.
Also, i tried your tests as well:
1) Removing optical cable - no audio from HT
2) Removing HDMI cable - audio comes from TV.
Based on this, it seems like TV is passing audio from HDMI instead of optical cable. I am not what settings to change next to get audio from optical
Perhaps someone else will read through your manuals to provide some suggestions.
...dumb question but I've seen it happen...did you remove the little plastic cover from the the end of your optical cable?
I took a quick look at your manual. Have you done this?
Also I see that hdmi1 is your arc input, so you may want to connect your HT to hdmi2 while you're trying to sort this out.
Did you try Hugh and topr's excellent suggestions?
Set digital audio options to Dolby Digital and PCM (both?).
Make sure the optical input of the receiver is assigned to TV input. (topr's suggestion(s) in post #10)
(Most receivers have multiple optical/coax inputs that need to be manually assigned if one chooses not to use the defaults).
Whatever it is it would be helpful if the OP would post the model number of the "Home Theater". If it is an HTIB it might also be helpful to him if he posted his query in the "Home Theater In a Box" or "Amps and Receivers" forums, whichever is appropriate.
Double check the audio output settings in the TV. Make sure the digital audio (optical) output is enabled. Disable ARC on the HDMI... even if not being used.
I highly suspect "pilot error" (no offense). Perhaps Steve S would be nice enough to read through your HTiB manual rather than redirecting the OP to another thread only rehash what's been covered.
There are two digital inputs on the HTIB, one optical and one coaxial. When pressing the function button on the HTIB remote it cycles thru them and the digital inputs indicate D import 1 and D import 2 for these but it doesn't say whether the optical input is D-1 or D-2. Try both with content from the PS3 visibly playing on the tv and optical cable running from the optical out on the tv to the optical in on the HTIB. The optical audio out on the tv should work all the time, the analog audio out needs to be enabled or disabled on the tv but not the optical. The level from the optical audio out on the tv is fixed--the tv volume control doesn't affect it.
If this doesn't work turn the tv speakers on in the tv setup menu (assuming they're already off). See if you get PS3 audio from the tv speakers. If not you might need to change the HDMI audio output on the PS3. Over HDMI the set will accept dolby digital and two channel PCM at 44.1 or 48khz, won't do anything with DTS or other PCM formats. If you go to the video settings screen on the PS3 look for "HDMI audio out" and try switching back and forth between PCM and Bitstream to see if you get audio.
Under "Music settings" on the PS3, set "output frequency" to 48khz.
I think the problem could be as simple as selecting "TV" under the HTIB's function selections instead of "D-import 1" or "D-import 2". Selecting "TV" switches the HTIB to a pair of analog inputs on the back, not the optical digital input.
I hate to revive an old thread but I've been searching everywhere online for an answer to this and haven't found one anywhere. I see in this thread that Steve S stated that the optical on this tv is fixed (which I expected), but what about the analog audio out? Is there a way to adjust the audio output from that via the remote/tv? Thanks in advance.
Yeah, I had seen that. I was looking for a more definitive answer from someone who actually owns this model. I discovered that one of my friends actually have the 46" model of this tv, so I had him test and it turns out that if you change the output mode of the analog audio out to headphones then you can control the output volume from the tv. Thanks for the reply.
