    Please can anyone help
    The kit we have just bought is as follows, please bear with me as I am not very technical.

    TV signal is via analogue cable box (no scart connections in or out).

    Have just bought the following:-

    Philips 32PW9509 CRT TV
    Panasonic DVDR DMRE55EB
    Panansonic Home Cinema SC-HT 870

    The connections I have made so far are:-

    RF lead to DVDR from cable box

    Scart lead from DVDR to TV (RGB socket)
    RF lead from DVDR to TV

    Scart lead from Home Cinema to TV (RGB socket)

    I have no connction between the Home Cinema and the DVDR as I was told that the TV would send a signal to the HC and it would automatically pick up its audio signal.

    However, the problem is this:-

    The Home Cinema system will recognise the Home Cinema system DVD sound, but will not work with the DVDR sound.

    Please can someone help as I am not very good when it comes to this type of thing.

    Also are there other things I could do to get a better picture or sound?

    As a side note the TV does not have progressive scan or component video. However,the TV does have what they call "Cinema Link" but I think that only works if you have all Philips kit.


    Any assistance would be much appreciated
    Thanks

    have you tried looking for an optical out on the DVDR and an optical in on the home cinema system?......you will probably get your DVDR sound then if you can run an optical lead between the two....failing that are there 2 audio out jacks (phono type?) on the DVDR that you can run to the Home Cinema system?

    Just looked at the specs for your system....there is no optical input for the HC system.......so no optical option........there seems to be no phono outs from the DVDR so .....no phono option either........have you tried connecting the Scart from the HC system into the DVDR? (instead of the TV?).......the TV/sound signals into the DVDR will hopefully end up at the HC system ???
