I have a DVD home theater system from Samsung. I hooked it in directly to my TV via HDMI cable. I also have time warner cable (digital cable). THat is also plugged directly into the tv via HDMI.
When I try a DVD, the surround sound system sounds great. But I want to make it so that I can make the surround sound respond to regular tv watching (esp watching sports). I tried plugging the DVD/Receiver into the TV directly and into the cable box, but nothing is working thus far.
So when I'm watching regular tv, and I turn on the home theater system, my tv sound goes out. The system reads: digital in. I can make it give sound again by switching this to Aux 2 or Aux 1, but the sound that comes out is the regular sound (from the TV).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
