I have a Sony VPLVW95 projector and a Sony Home Theatre

Customer Question
System (HT-M7/HT-M5/HT-M3). I just moved...
I have a Sony VPLVW95 projector and a Sony Home Theatre System (HT-M7/HT-M5/HT-M3). I just moved house and can't get it set up to work properly again. I can only get sound or vision (HDMI cable and a Sony blue ray player). I can't get both at the same tim, which seems weird and impossible. Any suggestions would be welcome. Thank you.

Hello

Welcome

If you connect up the blu-ray directly to the TV via HDMI (bypassing the hometheatre) does it work OK?this is a test/check not an answer thank you

If I just select cable TV, the projector and home theatre provide sound and vision. It is only when I try to use a DVD or Blu Ray player that I encounter the problem. Bizarre!
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 2 years ago

I see please try a reboot of the home theatre and the blu ray by unplugging both from wallpower waiting 5 mins then replugging back in again, if that does not work please carry out the earlier check thanks

I did check it through a TV and it works works perfectly, because that has an audio return control built in, which the projector doesn't. So I'm trying to isolate the image through a projector and the sound through the home theatre system using a single HDMI cable from the BD to the HTS.
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 2 years ago

OK I don't know I will opt out perhaps someone else knows please await another tech thanks

Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, a review; have you ensured that the HT-MH7 is set for "AMP" in MENU / HDMI / AUDIO.OUT

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Hi, yes, when I use cable, it works fine with the same setup. There is only an HDMI cable for audio out.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
How do you do that on this particular piece of equipment? Why won't the sound work for the BD when it does work for the SAT?
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 2 years ago

Second review; when selecting BD/DVD IN, have you verified that the HT-MH7 is set for "AUTO" in AMP MENU / AUDIO / IN MODE / AUTO

Do you mean with the same setup/connection and substituting the BD unit with a satellite receiver, there is sound from the Sony speakers? If ytes, the model number of the BD player please?

BTW when I say cable, I mean SAT probably in your vernacular.
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 2 years ago

A glitch with the multiple posts. As posted above:

the Sony BD is BDP-S5100. Also the AMP menu options you suggested for HTS are not available, so I think we're talking about a different model, they're nothing like that, just left and right and R-range etc.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
When I disconnect the projector, the sound of the BD comes through the speakers. Weird. So it is a setting in all BDs. I have 3 different models and all of them have the same problem.
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 2 years ago

For the second review, have you tried the instructions from the User's Manual? Please click HERE.

Please post 1 at a time, otherwise your posts would be overlapping and my reply would not be in sync with your last post.

And have you tried the first review, AMP MENU / HDMI / AUDIO.OUT / AMP?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No, this model is only digital. There are no analogue audio out components. There is digital in and out but HDMI overrides that. Before I moved, it used to work. That's the most frustrating thing.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Responding to your second response, I've already posted I don't have those menu options. But it doesn't alter the outcome or the fundamental issue. Why can I get sound and audio when using SAT but only sound or vision when using a BD?
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 2 years ago

Bear with me. Please confirm "..with the same setup/connection/HDMI cable and the same HDMI port is used in the Sony HT-MH7, swapping the BD unit with a satellite receiver, there would now be sound from the Sony speakers?..."

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
precisely. Just at the push of a few buttons on various controllers. But multiple different Sony BD players have been attempted, so I'm wondering whether the fault is isolated to that, and if I were to substitute a different brand of BD, maybe I could get it to work?
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 2 years ago

If "...swapping the BD unit with a satellite receiver...", then why still need to "... push of a few buttons on various controllers..."

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
OMG, I don't physically get up and disconnect and reconnect different units. I just use controllers like everybody else in the world. Forget it...
TV Technician: Louie, Technician replied 2 years ago

That was meant to be a test / confirmation to determine if it is a HT-M7 or a BD issue.

Still, good luck with the connections as I have opted out.
