I have a 7.1 Onkyo Reciever, and Emerson HDTV and a RCA CD/DVD player. I am getting the surround sound from the CD/DVD player but I can not get it from the TV. My set up: Cable coming directly into the TV , S-Video to the CD/DVD Player, an Optical cord from the CD/DVD player to receiver. I have tried using the analog cords from the TV to the Receiver but it does seem to work. I only have the analog connection on the Video one and the components on Video 2. Currently the TV is set on Video 1. What am I doing wrong? Please Help
"Cable coming directly into the TV". You have no cable box and your TV connection are only in and can't feed sound to the Onkyo. You need a VCR, cable to the VCR then to TV and RCA audio out from VCR to Onkyo.
