I would like to listen to my television program's sound through my SC-BTT270 speakers. How do I do it?
There are two (2) basic types of connections to enable this kind of feature on your Blu-ray or DVD Home Theater System.
TYPE 1: The first is using a pair of RCA or Composite audio cables that have red and white connectors on both ends. Connect one end of the audio cable to the port labeled AUX (auxiliary) at the back of the main unit, and the other end to the back of your television labeled AUDIO OUT. You may also opt to connect the audio cable from the back of the main Blu-ray or DVD Home Theater System unit (AUX) to the back of your cable or satellite box (AUDIO OUT). They should be color coded the same. After making this connection, set your Blu-ray or DVD Home Theater System's mode to the AUX input. This should work automatically, and sound should now be coming out from the speakers of your system. If sound only comes out from the front speakers, this is normal if the source of the audio is encoded in STEREO. Activate surround sound by pressing the [SURROUND] button, or select Multi-CH from the surround options.
TYPE 2: Another type of connection is by using an OPTICAL AUDIO CABLE or DIGITAL FIBER OPTIC AUDIO CABLE. Connect one end of the cable to the port labeled OPTICAL AUDIO IN at the back of the main unit, and the other end to the back of your television labeled OPTICAL AUDIO OUT. You may also opt to connect the audio cable from the back of the main Blu-ray or DVD Home Theater System unit (OPTICAL IN) to the back of your cable or satellite box (OPTICAL OUT). After making this connection, set your Blu-ray or DVD Home Theater System's mode to the D-IN input. If your unit has more than one OPTICAL IN port, set it to the corresponding mode or input (eg. D-IN1 or D-IN2). An optical audio connection decodes 5.1 audio signals automatically, for surround sound effects.
