    Hi. I just bought the sony davfx80 and a panasonic hdtv plasma. my question is, how can i use the speakers from the fx80 with the tv. they work when i watch a dvd or listen to music, but i also want them to work when i watch regular tv. right now the fx80 and the tv are hooked up with an HDMI wire, what else would i need?

    Welcome to Agoaquest!  Your TV must have audio out jacks and/or a digital coaxial or optical audio output.  If your set has a coaxial digital audio output, connect it to the VIDEO 1 COAXIAL IN jack and connect the audio out jacks to the VIDEO 1 AUDIO IN L and R jacks.  If your set has an digital optical audio output, connect it to the VIDEO 2 OPTICAL DIGITAL IN jack and connect the audio out jacks to the VIDEO 2 AUDIO IN L and R jacks.  You will need to select VIDEO 1 or VIDEO 2 (whichever you used) to hear the audio.  These connections only apply if you are using the TV's internal tuners or video inputs other than the HDMI input.  If you are using a digital cable box exclusively, connect the digital optical audio output to the VIDEO 2 OPTICAL DIGITAL IN jack and that's it!  Please let us know how you make out!

    thank you very much for ur response. both the tv and fx80 have the digital optical input, so i will buy the wire and let you know if it works. any idea how much this wire should cost me? if it makes it any easier, the tv is a Panasonic TH-42PX50U. thank you

    I'm assuming that the optical jack on the TV is an output, not an input.
    The cost of the cables depends on the quality that your purchase.  Cables available at Radio Shack should suffice for your system.  The most bang for the buck in optical cables are the glass Toslink cables available at "Stuart's" eBay store,

    http://cgi1.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewStore&name=247minidiscs

    which is temporarily closed while inventory is restored.  You can read more about Stuart's present situation here.  I am not sure what Radio Shack has to offer, but most Toslink cables are plastic, not glass and have much poorr frequency response characteristics by comparison.

    yoyo1972- Simply refering someone to a search engine does not solve their specific problem.

    If you have done the research and found a solution to this particular problem we would like to hear it.
