Digital Audio Optical Cables for Panasonic SC-HT05?

by jeffcovert / February 24, 2005 8:29 AM PST

I really like my new Panasonic HTIB. It appears to be all that CNET said. HOWEVER I cannot get the Digital Optical audio to function from a Sony DVD with DTS and Dolby. I have tried two cables too.

Any advice on what to try? All help is appreciated.

you have to be playing a disc that is DTS enabled & you usually have to go into the dvd's setup menu or language select menu & select DTS (instead of dolby). lemme think... I think "Master & Commander" is DTS enabled among others. Sony came out with a line of movies called the "superbit" versions, & they are all DTS enabled. you also have to tell your DVD player that it can output DTS because otherwise it will stay silent. Usually receivers are automatic & you don't have to tell them that they might be receiving DTS... they'll just pick up on it.

just go into settings (top arrow button on the reciever) and find 'setup' then find the input your'e using for your dvd player and select the digital audio jack you're using. it should run smoothly. you can do this with your remote to with the button 'input mode'

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
