    • A. I am using this system with my DirecTV satelite system, but have the system hooked up to my TV digital out sound. The direcTV goes directly into the TV at this time. I did not have another HDMI cable to push the Satellite Video through the Sony, but it should be easy to do, there is an HDMI input slot.

    • A. I'll produce sound from any input source connected to it, but if your TV doesn't support ARC (Audio Return Channel) via HDMI you'll need to use a digital audio cable (either coaxial or optical) to send the sound from the TV back to the home theater receiver.

    • A. Yes, depending on the type of output connection they have you can hook the BDV-E780W up to both your Satellite Receiver and your TV. There are HDMI inputs for video and both digital optical and coaxial inputs and analog inputs for audio. The HDMI output for TV supports Audio Return Channel (ARC), so if your TV supports this there would be no need to connect any further cables to your TV other than HDMI.

    Searched for this item on line and found a number of well known electronics stores that sold this item. The price was basically the same regardless of where I looked. However, the day I decided on buying this item, did one final search and found the exact same item at Walmart (online) for almost $150 less!!!!!!! Plus shipping for about $3!! That was the first part of this excellent deal!! The system performs extremely well, is easy to set up and has quite a number of apps for movies, music and I can hook up my iPod to listen to music. Ovearall, I am extremely happy with the home tehater system, the price, and the overall buying experience. I definitely recommend this system to anyone looking for an inexpensive system that provides a great sound, great picture for the price!!!

    I had done a review of this product and it was gettting good remarks. I found that WalMart online had a great price compared to other stores. I ordered online and had it shipped to my local WalMart. Installation was very easy. I was looking for the remote back speakers and these worked perfectly. We are finally getting 5.1 surround sound from our movies. No problems with the system at all so far.

    I purchased this system with high hopes based on months of research & numerous favorable reviews online. However, the system simply has too many quirks for me to recommend it. For starters, it is *extremely* slow to start up -- taking anywhere from 3 up to 14 minutes before it would become functional & respond to the remote, & the only known workarounds at this time appear to be using a wired internet connection rather than Wi-Fi (defeating the point of wireless rear speakers depending on where your router is located), and/or making sure the unit's input is set to BD/DVD before turning it off (a pain to remember every time). My research indicates this is due to flaws in the latest firmware (removing this update & performing a factory reset reduced the start time to 2-5 minutes, still too high IMO & preventing any other benefits of the new firmware to be applied to the system). Once it is functional, the sound via digital optical cable does not always come up with the rest of the system & occasionally cuts out when switching between input sources (like between DVR & live TV), requiring additional cycling of inputs on both HT & TV before it would come back on (my HDTV does not support HDMI v.1.4, so I can't access the Audio Return Channel function of the HDMI input). The down-firing subwoofer, while rather powerful for a passive unit, started out working fine but after a week started generating continuous bass rumble that overpowered the dialogue of TV shows from my DVR, even when set at the lowest level. Further research indicates that this unit does not work well with the Motorola DVR cable boxes used by Comcast/Xfinity (I'm guessing it's a HDCP handshake issue, which would help explain the slow/erratic switching between channels & functions, such as when going from DVR to live TV); whether this can/will be resolved by firmware update is uncertain. The display on the main unit is also bothersome, being set to display on the top of the unit rather than the front, so you have to constantly get up to see what everything's set to. That said, I honestly liked everything else about the unit. The sound quality was clear & balanced (apart from the subwoofer issue), and the picture produced by its blu-ray player was outstanding even on my older LCD set. The FM tuner was strong when combined with a powered antenna rather than the basic pair of wires they supply (I live right across the street from a radio transmitter tower, so I needed a stronger option), and the included internet apps covered all the familiar, expected bases (Netflix, YouTube, Pandora) as well as a few unexpected surprises (like the Billabong app for extreme sports, & the web browser app). Sony's tech support was polite & helpful (or at least well-intentioned, as they were ultimately unable to resolve my problems). Unfortunately, this unit's issues & compatibility problems with the rest of my system made it a no-go for me, & I had to return it; I've since replaced it with the Samsung HT-D6500W, which has comparable features in the same $400-450 price range, & so far I've been really happy with it. If you and/or Sony can find a way to overcome the issues I mentioned above you've got a solidly entertaining system with the BDV-E780W; otherwise, I recommend taking a pass & looking elsewhere.
