I'm looking into this. However, the U.S. FAQ sites are for U.S. products. I'm looking to see how we can get 5.1 to play out of all of the speakers.
I just purchased this Home Theatre system and hooked it up to my Samsung series 9 LED TV. The TV and the HT (Home Theatre) are connected via a HDMI cable.
When I put a CD or ipod in the HT it will only use the front L-R speakers. No sound is coming from the Centre, Rear L-R, or the Sub-woofer. (When playing DVD's however everything works fine)
On the samsung site FAQ:
It gives the following advice:
"By default when the home theatre receives a stereo signal into digital in or when playing back an audio CD, it will reproduce only 2 channel through the front right and left speakers. To have the home theatre feed stereo signal to all speakers, press MODE button on the HT remote, until the LCD display on the HT shows mode as being MATRIX. This will enable all speakers both for 5.1 and stereo."
The Problem is that there is no "MODE" button on the remote, the closest thing is the function button, but when you press that there is never "MATRIX" as an option.
The FAQ in the manual says to press the "Dolby Pro Logic II" button to fix the problem. When I do this nothing happens, sound stays the same, I don't get any on screen options.....nothing.
Very disappointed by Samsung this time....please help.
