Panasonic (TC 50PX14) 50" Plasma TV
Panasonic (SA-PT673) Home Theater Surround Sound/DVD player
Panasonic (DMP-BD605) Blu-Ray
I have tried several different combinations, and inevitably, something doesn't work.
Currently I have the Blu-Ray connected to the TV with HDMI cable, the Direct TV connected to the Home Theater, Home theater connected to TV with HDMI, and Wii connected straight to the TV (we aren't able to get sound through home theater from this item). The problem right now is that the Blu-Ray does not have sound at all. The only way we can get this to have sound is to disconnect the Direct TV from the surround sound and then then connect the Blu-Ray to it. It is not such a horrible thing for me to do, but my kids aren't able to watch a Blu-Ray without bothering me to reconnect everything. I know there is a way to connect them all, but I have not been able to find anything to show me how.
One other note, I have a optical audio cable that I have tried to connect from the Blu-Ray to the Surround Sound and it still will not give any sound.
I just want to get this so that everything works without having to unhook one and plug in another. (My current setup involves disconnecting the DirecTV in order to hook up the Blu-Ray, and vice versa.
I feel like I'm probably making this more complicated than it actually is, but I'm hoping someone can help explain this to me.
