I have a 58 inch Plasma Samsung TV a new Samsung blu ray player and a Samsung DVD home theater system (HT-D5690). All these devices I have purchased at different times and have been loyal to the Samsung brand becuase I realy like the any-net connection feature. I have recently found that with the purchse of the new blu ray player that all my connections are not compatible becuase every thing but the DVD home therater is connected with the HDMI cables. On the back of the home theater there is a two wire port connection for any-net. Their is no port on the back of the newer tv for such connection only HDMI. What can I do to get any-net connect between my home theater and my tv? Help

Hi and welcome to Just Answer. I'm sorry to hear about your TV. I will try my best to give you a precise and accurate answer.
Let me know when you are online.
I am online
Samsung's Any Net will work through your HDMI cables.
What is the problem you are having?
Just plug it all together with HDMI and it should set itself up.
Yes but my DVD home theater has anynet but not HDMI becuse it was purchased before there was any HDMI.
Ahh...hold on a sec...
Can you double check the model number of the HTS for me please.
I bought May 2005
It is a 5 CD DVD changer with surrand sound
Let me find the book...
There's something wring with that model number...
Let me get the manuel just a minute.
Sorry it is HT-DS690
Grabbing the manual myself....
The any-net port has an in and out plug in wiring set up no HDMI the TV has no such componet setup just HDMI
How about your Blu Ray player?
The blu ray is all HDMI it is model BD-P1600
Does it have the small jacks?
I know it has HDMI.
So the only component with the small jacks is the HTS??
Is there an adapter that could come from the small jacks on the any-port on the HTS to a HDMI port?
The two are incompatible. What are you trying to control on the HTS? Volume? Or something else?
Because the TV and the BD Player will work (I have a Samsung Plasma and Blu Ray).
Just on and off and volume is all I need
Are you using a cable box? Is that HDMI?
The TV and BD are working fine and anynet I just want to get the HTS in the poop without another damn remote.
Yes I am and it is HDMIas well.
It is with Com Cast
ComCast has a universal remote and I tried all the codes but could not find one that worked with the HTS.
Ok. So run HDMI from box to TV. Run HDMI from Blu Ray to TV.
Run optical from TV back to HTS.
would that work?
That way, you will never have to change the input on the HTS - I assuje you will now use the BD player for older DVDs.
When you turn the BD player on, it will flip the input on the TV automatically.
So now, we have to figure out volume.
I will only use HTS for sound
The output on the optical is fixed so using the TV volume control will not work.
I assume we want to use the TV remote?
Yes or the cable remote.
No that won't won't work with the Blu Ray remote
You won't need the Blue Ray remote.
Ok, this is what I did. I have a Yamaha sound bar (it's like an HTS), Samsung TV and BD, and a Scientific Atlanta 8400HD Comcast box. I was pretty much in the same boat...
Best Buy has a great little universal remote for $19.99. It learns macros so pressing the ON button turns on everything.
It is also a learning remote.
Hold on and I'll find it....
Bear with me for a sec....
Wal Mart has it: http://www.walmart.com/ip/UNIVERSAL-6-Device-Remote-Control-R6/9134032?sourceid=1500000000000003183800&srccode=cii_11834&cpncode=24-11876676
Been using it for a year with no problems. The only time i need the Comcast remote is when I want to record a show and the only time I need the TV remote is to mess with the screen settings. It will do everything else and control your HTS volume and power on/off.
So the optical will work but not adjust the sound volume?
Exactly. Anynet will work between the TV and teh BD player seamlessly.
OK sounds good to me.
So your volume control will be via the universal remote controlling the HTS.
Which is how I have it. You turn the internal speakers on the TV OFF.
Or you get a wierd echo. T
So the cable box does channels only, the HTS does volume.
I even programmed teh PIP button on the remote to change the aspect ratio.
For stretching the screen on 4:3 broadcasts.
Can I print this so I can refer to it.
I think so.
Or just cut and paste the whole thing.
Into notbook or Word.
Samsung makes a great TV. Enjoy it!
I will sign off. You will see my closing script, if you need me again, just start typing and it will carry on right from where we left off - even if it is next week ro next year.
