    Well 360 is optica....don't know about the rest...so for that alone:
    kenable.co.uk/pro…a17

    Depending on length...

    You need to connect the Wii with the red/white phono leads from the AV cable. Give me a min to find the model, and I'll see what your options for the other things are

    thank you both for your time, ihave managed to change the input settings to 1080i on the dvd player but still have no sound from tv alone but i suppose i need some cables for that too

    Right, forget what I said above :-D

    You'll need to plug the Wii directly into your TV as you did previously. Then, get a red/white phono lead (about £3 from maplins) and run this from the audio out on your TV to the red/white sockets on the back of the cinema system. Connect the 360 to the cinema system via an optical cable, and then the cinema system to the TV via HDMI.

    i have a spare red white phono upstairs so ill use that for wii, i will buy a 360 optical from kenable then, i already have hdmi cable from cinema system to tv but the sound still coming from tv rather than speaker , do you think it might be the tv settings cant see anyway to change on the sound options,cheers, there is also component sockets can i use them to better anything

    To get sound from the TV through the the speakers, you'll need to run the phono cable from the audio out on the TV to the audio in on the cinema system. I'd use the cable that was supplied with the Wii to connect it to the TV - by using the phone cables from TV - cinema system, it'll then output any audio from the TV (i.e the Wii when you are playing it)

    i have just tried that mate i get sound from the wii and tv but only through the 2 front speakers centre, bass and rear dont work is there anyway to get them all working or only on 5.1 dvds etc

    The Wii only outputs 2.1 so will only go through the front two speakers. The 360 (if you use optical) and DVD player will output 5.1

    You'll only get that if its full surround...no TV....DEPENDING if its like my Sammy

    ODB_69 you might be the chap to help me .. I've got a sammy tv and home entertainment system..
    Can the tones be change on the speaker set up? I have got it hook up to myTV with a optical lead but the sounds seem really deep and almost mufflely.. The sound is OK if I'm watching a dvd or even watching a HD channel but horrible through SD broadcast unless I change it to come through the audio leads..
    I've got a feeling that I might of got a faulty home entertainment but I don't want to call someone out to be told I haven't got it set up right...

    If its a Sammy cinema system you've got, I think you can. I used to have one, and I'm pretty sue you could adjust the levels depending on the source material through the menu using the remote. Which model have you got - I'll have a look into it for you :thumbsup:

    Sorry Edna no idea....sounds wrong though unless there are some options somewhere, so possible Fault....To be honest I haven't hooked it up to my TV...just to my 360 + freeview recorder.....but the sounds ok through them.What's the model number?To be 100% honest, the best place to find out EVERYTHING you need to know for your model I would say join [url]www.AVForums.co.uk[/url] its specifically for this and people are usually quite helpful

    Thanks ODB and midlandscomics...I've got a LE40M87BDX tv and a HT-X250R Home entertainment center.. I've looked through the menus and I really havn't had any joy with it.. The sound is so poor that I don't bother turning it on unless I watch a DVD..

    Just been having a look for the system on Amazon (couldn't remember which one yours is) and found the following in the buyer reviews:

They are working on a solution.



    Might be worth a call to Samsung to see if this has been resolved- it could be part of the problem.

    Thanks midlandscomics... I think I'll phone them tomorrow.. I've had problems with the TV and that has had two complete boards so they'll be please to here from me again.. I think there's a few issues with the sammy TV and entertainment systems.. One of the selling things is the anynet system that links the two together but they won't work if you've got a sky HD box connected too.. It took about four phone calls to Samsung before they told me it's an ongoing issue and they know all about it..:x
