    This is my first post, so please be gentle with me!

    I'm living in Italy and I just treated myself to a rather expensive Sony FD Trinitron widescreen KV-24LS35E tv.

    Great picture... pity Italian tv is so bad!

    The problem happens when I hook it up to my equally expensive Panasonic SA-MT1 home theatre system.

    The dvd looks great on my new Sony tv, the DTS 5.1 home theatre sound is rocking my world, but... when I turn up the tv volume...


    Worse, there isn't just silence, but the soundtrack of whatever Italian tv station I had on before I put on the DVD? Not at full volume... ghostly, in the background... horrible!!

    It's a very simple set up - a scart ("Euroconnector")cable running from the dvd player to the tv.

    What am I doing wrong? Why am I looking at Bruce Willis but listening to Topo Gigio?!

    Anybody got any ideas?? Thanks!!

    My memory is vague on this but...

    have you connected the stereo L and R analogue outputs from your dvd to your tv?

    If so you're expecting the dvd player to downmix the 5.1 dts to 2 channel stereo for your tv and getting nothing. The player probably doesn't do this.

    Either listen to the 5.1 dts on your av amp or try dolby 5.1 for stereo from the tv.

    I remember a warning on my old dvd player saying that it will not output stereo while it it decoding dts 5.1. In fact it said the output could damage your amp and speakers (Nasty eh).
