Use the optical cable to connect from the TV to the HT-C5500 so you can listen to television audio via the home theater system. Say you want to watch something on TV and instead of listening to the sound via the TV speakers, you select source D.IN on the home theater system, and with the optical cable attached, the audio will be through the home theater ... in SURROUND!

I connect my HDTV to it to listen to over the air TV broadcasts in 5.1 (mainly sports events, but some prime time TV as well). This is the only way to get 5.1 from an outside source to the Home Theater.

The optical cable is to connect to other sources, such as a cable box, that is not connected to the system through HDMI. This is used to use the surround sound capabilities watching everyday television. Hope this explains things.

Question

No Sound from TV to BlueRay Players Speakers When Watching TV

I am using a HDMI connection between my BlueRay CT-C5500 and my LG 42LG70 HDMI LCD TV. After hooking everything up for the firsttime, the auto-sound configuration ran through to completion with the bundled MIC. All the attached speakers worked and were inthe proper inputs. But when I try to play sound from my tv to the speakers I hear nothing, The video appeared on my TV perfectly and I can move through all menus. I have a HD Comcast DVR cable box hooked into HDMI-1 and the BlueRay set hooked into HDMI-2 on the TV. What am I missing to get the sound from my TV to play through my BlueRay Player's speakers when not playing a DVD?

Get a digital optical cable, it was great, after hooking up that cord , turn the sound down on the T.V. otherwise it will echo, and then turn your speakers up or run the music test it will adjust the speakers for you.

Get an optical cable and connect it from the Optical Out on the TV to the Optical In on your Blu-ray player. When you want to watch TV with the audio through the home theater system, you only need to select the SOURCE as D.in (Digital In).

Connecting the HDMI cable from the Blu-ray player to the TV only sends information to the TV, not vice-versa.

You need to check to see if your particular TV has audio out ports, either RCA jacks or digital. if it has both, I would recommend the digital output. Route that output via a cable to the blue ray unit. You may have to change your audio settings in your tv to play from external speakers rather than from the tv itself.

I had this same problem then realized that I need this on extra step.

Another route around is to connect the sound directly from your cable box to the blue ray. (This was my first configuration) The only issue with that is you won't get sound if your TV has streaming application such as youtube or netflix. Going direclty from the tv to the BD player fixes this and always gives sound.

If you don't have your blu-ray player connected to the internet (where it will do updates for you), you can purchase an inexpensive thumb drive. A 2GB will be sufficient. You can go to the support section at Samsung and get the updates for your product. Just make sure you remove any other files from the thumb drive, such as autorun then save the update files to the thumb drive. Insert the thumb drive into the USB outlet on the front of the machine (probably behind a cover) and go to the support section of your blu-ray's menu. I removed the pre-installed files on my thumb drive to a folder on my computer so I could return them to the thumb drive after doing the update.

I got also the same problem.
But as Gabester said, u need to uper the central speaker.
To my case when i used the mic to setup automatically the speaker I get starnge reactions.
1st go in options speakers and set up correctly the distance of each speaker.
Then lower the number of the subwoofer to - 6 db. Put rear speaker between 2 and 3 db, left and right at 4 or 3 db, and central at 4 or 5 db.
Also use dynamic range and in the movie use true hd audio if possible.
For gaming it is ok.
Never put one of the speaker at 6db , saturation can damage the speaker. Hope it will help. This product is really nice.

There is a setting in the Settings under audio for Dynamic Range Control to help with this at low volumes. Keep in mind the quality of audio is such that there is a broader dynamic range with a system like this so the audio usually needs to be "louder" than a highly compressed TV volume to sound as "loud". As a last resort, you may increase the center speaker dB level. This is mainly used for vocals.

To me, this seems like a energy saving setting of the router itself. A timeout condition.
Check your router's owners manual and disable the "energy saving" option in the menu of the router.
These are usually enabled by default on most brands of routers. I do not know if Allshare has a "keep alive" or polling function which would allow the unit to maintain the connection.

I am also having a problem with the AllShare software, although I did manage to get my HT-C5500 to recognize the server on my computer. I found that the manual is correct in one respect, both the HT-C5500 & the PC must be client's of the same roughter (not a modem). My problem is a little different, as the two can see each-other, but only for 9 minutes, it's not screen-saver, firewall, or anti-virus related, as I done clean boot's with each of these disabled (as well as my modem), and after 9 minutes the HT-C5500 say's device disconnected? Some idea's, hope they help.

I am not sure which model home theater system you have. With both the TV and receiver (home theater) on. Use the remote and change to FM tuner. Next push the TV power button off on the TV. Do not use the remote.This should have the home theater unit on and FM tuner . If this works then you must reprogram your remote. Check yout manual for the codes, they should have different codes.Besure only one is on at a time to program the remote.

Thank you for contacting Samsung.

When watching movies & TV, usage of all speakers is dependent on the audio track available on certain DVDs/Blu-rays and also whether or not you have changed the audio setting in your cable box/DVR to indicate your wish to use surround sound audio when made available. For example, a movie with a Dolby Surround track will only play in 2.0 or 2.1 surrroud, whereas a film with a 5.1 audio track will employ all speakers in some fashion. Sound won't always be coming out of all speakers at once, but the zoom of a helicopter in an action movie might start in your left rear speaker and glide across to your front right speaker. Radio is different because it is not typically mixed for certain speakers during broadcast, so unless you've made a change on your receiver, it will always play through all speakers.

We recommend you review the following troubleshooting guide in an effort to get the sound issue resolved.

http://support-us.samsung.com/cyber/popup/iframe/pop_troubleshooting_fr.jsp?idx=390585&modelname=HT-C5500&modelcode=&session_id=P9Ddny40zjh34922yG1yq6YJLlQKpXlJYLRWvQZ30JvZYlZkTSzk%211563613049%21-2054320912%211342014301500

Check to be sure the wires are not loose going to the outlet from the electric panel (neutral wire). Turn the circuit off going to the outlet before starting. A loose neutral wire could be causing a drop in voltage, making the tv screen skip. Also check the HDMI cable to screen, be sure it is in all the way.

Question

Does anyone have any issues with online movies downloading slower than they should?

I have the unit hard wired to a linksys N router which is connected to a cable modem. If I do a speed check using the samsung unit, it says that my connection speed is only 1.3 to 1.8 MPS. However, if I disconnect the network cable from the samsung unit, hook it into a laptop and do a ping test, the ping test speed comes back at 15 MPS. A previous note from Samsung told me I had to disconnect the firewall from the router, however, when I inquire with Linksys they highly recommend NOT doing this. Does anyone have any other suggestions? I would think that this would be a complaint from many users and Samsung would have developed a work around by now.

Hi, This Blu Ray does not have digital outputs for Audio only, however the HDMI contains a digital Audio stream. There are several splitter cables avaliable that let the HDMI pass through to the TV and also split out the digital audio to SPDIF that you can then plug into your Amp. Just do a search on google for one.

It will only recognize "wireless" if you are using the Samsung wireless adapter. If you're using another wireless adapter through the LAN port, the blu-ray is recognizing it as a wired connection.

You would NOT want to do that. Speakers with an Ohms rating higher than the specified 3Ohm output of this unit will want to draw more current than the built-in amp can output, thereby damaging the final output section of the C5500 amplifier. 120W/8Ohm speakers should be driven at 8 Ohms. You can find 8 Ohm output amplifiers available in many types and manufacturers. They are usually separate units with up to 7.1 channels and a descreet 8 Ohm output. Ceiling speakers will require the 8Ohms to sound natural without pops & clicks associated with under driven output amplifiers.

You can get sound to the Home Theater a couple different ways. You may use the normal RCA (red, blue) cable set for analog audio (sub par quality given your Home Theater purchase). This is only 2 channel or Left/Right audio and then you must set the Home Theater to Aux In. **My preference is for 5.1 using the digital audio input and the digital audio out from my HDTV. The cable is an optical cable (uses fiber optics for 5.1) and you simply set the Home Theater to D. IN.
