    Hi, I just brought a new Wharfedale HT6180 dvd home cinema system which came with 5 speakers and a subwoofer, I have got everything connected just fine and it is working. I also have a Sony widescreen TV, an NTL Digital Pace Box, and a Mitsubishi M1000 VHS player. The only time I can use the Cinema surround sound is when I am a watching a DVD. I would prefer if I could use the surround sound when watching a Video and watching my Digital TV as well. How would I go about doing this so that I can listen to surround sound when watching my digital tv channels.

    Thanks in advance

    Does the Wharfdale have the ability to asign sound modes to each input? Check the set-up menu which should have a sub-menu for sound options

    You can only hear what is presented.
    Tv progs are not all in 5.1 (stereo most of the time or if you are lucky a modern film will have the 5.1 broadcast as well)
    Tape is stereo at best.
    You need a processor or amp/receiver that will synthesise surround when it isnt present in the original material.
