Question

How can I connect my home theater system (HTS) or surround sound system (SSS) to the TV?

Answer

Your TV is equipped with several types of connections. The type of connection you should use to connect your audio equipment depends on which features of the audio system you want to use.

If you wish to connect the audio out from the TV to the audio system:

  • The TV has a Scart and SPDIF (coaxial) output. The audio equipment must have one of these connections in order to work with the TV.

Follow these steps to connect the devices:

  1. Switch the TV and the HTS off.
  2. Connect the HTS choosing one of the above solutions.
  3. Switch the TV and the HTS on.
  4. Select a TV channel.
  5. Select the input on the HTS to which the TV is connected.
  6. Adjust the volume on the audio equipment to hear the sound from the audio equipment loudspeakers.
  7. If you do not wish to hear the sound from the TV, press the volume down button on the remote control to turn the TV's volume down or set to OFF mode in the TV SPEAKERS menu.
  8. You can also use the TV remote control to adjust the volume on the audio equipment if;
    • Your source is HDMI CEC compliant with system audio control functionality and activated.
    • The source and TV are connected via a HDMI cable.
  9. If you experience a delay in the audio signal from the HTS, verify if the digital audio lipsync feature in the Setup>Sound menu is set to ON mode.

NOTE: Digital and analogue audio out are available when viewing program received from all inputs.

If you wish to connect the HTS to the TV for video playback:

Use a HDMI cable to connect the TV to HTS.

  4. Press the play button on the HTS.
  5. If the source is HDMI CEC compliant, the TV will automatically switch to the HDMI input.
  6. If the TV did not switch to the HDMI input, ensure that the EasyLink feature on the TV and HTS is activated.
  7. If your source is not HDMI CEC compliant, manually switch the TV to the HDMI input.
  8. If you do not wish to hear the sound from the TV:
    1. If the source is HDMI CEC with system audio functionality, the TV speakers will be muted automatically when the TV is set to AUTO EASYLINK mode in the TV SPEAKERS menu.
    2. If your source does not have the system audio functionality, press the volume down button on the TV remote control to turn the TV's volume down or set to OFF mode in the TV SPEAKERS menu.
