    Hi fellas, :hiya:

    I have just bought a panny TH37PE50 plasma and I cannot figure out how to get sound from my ntl set top box to my panny home cinema kit (scht530). as there are no phono sockets on the back of the set top.

    I phoned ntl and they said I need to buy a scart block with these phono connections on it, Is this correct?

    If so how do I conect it all up?

    And which ones do you recommend?

    Many thanks In advance.

    Seems quite strange not to have any audio out - but not knowing NTL's stuff then it may be a 'feature' of their design.

    The easiest way to do this may be to send a fully wired scart (I assume the scart you're using can produce sound from the plasma) to the plasma and then run a set of phono (1 white & red on each end) leads from the TV's audio out back to your home cinema kit.

    It's a bit messy but sounds like the easiest way of doing this rather than whatever they said.

    Do you have a model number for the NTL box?

    Yes mate, the model no. Is a samsung smt-2100c

    Funny thing is ntl upgraded the box 3 weeks ago, and the new one doesn't have phono outputs at all, where as the old one did.

    I have 2 phono sockets on the back of the telly for sound output, are you saying I can connect these to my home cinema?

    Thanks for your quick reply.
