I would appreciate if someone can provide me the solution for this.


I have Sony Hometheater (Model NO:DAV-TZ215) it doesnt have S/P DIF port or any other audio port other than RCA and HDMI for audio and video.It splitting up the 5.1 channel audio only when playing through hometheater DVD.


I have newly purchased HD DTH which having a HDMI port, S/P DIF port and RCA ports in it. I wanted 5.1 channel audio output from when connecting from setup box to hometheater. I know RCA ports will carry only analog signal which will never give 5.1 channel output.


I dont have anyother option other than RCA jack and HDMI port in DVD. Please provide me some solution . Suggestion on convertors also welcome.


PFA the DVD ports

There is no way to get a surround signal into that Sony. 


Next time around I highly recommend you don't purchase a HTiB, they have limited connection and upgrade options.

Al is correct. You can't do what you want with that Sony system.
