Xbox, flat screen, home stereo
I have a question hope someone can help me. I have my xbox hooked up to my flat screen (via hdmi cable) I have my home stereo hooked up to my flat screen. But I can't get my surround sound to play through my speakers. My home stereo doesnt have a hdmi or a optical output. I am wondering what I have to do to get sound to come from my tv to home stereo.
My sony receiver is a STR-450Z and my tv is a LG 42 inch LCD model # 42lk450-UK and i can't get sound from my receiver to my speakers
I spoke with a consultant from sony in a support chat room, and he had asked me if my tv had a AUDIO OUT and after looking I could not find one. So I have decided to take my home theater/stereo into a different direction and work on purchasing a new receiver. Now my question is if my speakers I have now will be the best choice for the receiver I am looking at. I am looking at the Pioneer VSX series receivers and purchasing 2 more (small) speakers to serve as the rear and just build my system to a 7.1 surround sound. Any further advice on this would be appreciated.
From my understanding though is that without the audio out I can't do much with my current setup.
I don't know how I could have set up audio out from my xbox 360, I have a hdmi cable from my xbox to my flat screen tv. I am just not sure if it is possible to do with my receiver seeing as how I don't have a audio out on my tv. My tv has the following connections, 3 hdmi, 2 usb, 2 composite, and 2 component hookups. But if I have the hdmi coming from my xbox to my tv then I am not sure what I can do to get the audio out.
If I am understanding you correctly then if I was to purchase a microsoft hdmi cable then I should be able to hook up my audio cable to my receiver via the microsoft cable. Just means that I wasted 50 dollars on a hdmi cable I purchased at best buy. I am guessing this is what I will have to do then I will have to order one of those rather than getting a new receiver. Please let me know if I am understanding this right.
