I bought this system for my mother to complement her new Samsung 55 inch HDTV which has 3d but no smart features.\nThe 2nd phrase in the store description placard for this theater system said \"wireless rear speakers\", which is a must for her installation. However, upon opening the box, I discovered that the rear speakers must be connected with wires to the Blu-ray unit and are NOT wireless.\nSo, I must return it.\nThat's a shame, because it is supposed to have great sound and nice features according to almost all of the 40 or so reviews I read.\nBy the way, here are answers to some questions others asked:\n1. The included Blu-ray player also plays CD's and DVD's.\n2. It has an FM radio tuner built in.\n3. It does not include HDMI, optical audio, or RCA audio cables. You must furnish your own.\n4. Besides the HDMI and optical audio inputs, it also has RCA auxiliary audio inputs #1 red and 1 white.
does anyone know how to get the system to work with my TV? im using the RCA cables for audio but cant get the sound out of the speakers. i need it to work with my TV not when im watching movies. IE when im watch a football game i want the surround sound. how do i get that to work. i plugged the RCA cables in the back of this philips red and white and the red and white to the back of the tv. switch the philips unit to the aux and no sound. i also tried to go to all the inputs on the philips unit but no luck. what am i doing wrong or can this thing even get surround sound for just TV?

This system was great for playing dvd's and bluray discs. But the volume would not go high enough for normal tv. We contacted Samsung who told us it must be the cable company's issue. The cable company came and looked at it and said everything was fine with our box. We hooked it up to a different tv and same exact thing. We were told we would need to purchase a separate receiver to get the true benefit and full sound. Also, when watching tv, this system would shut off automatically about 10-20 minutes in. Very annoying.
This device is worth far more than I paid for it. Very reliable. Occasionally have to power down the system to reboot when using the wifi (Netflix). The only performance complaint. Otherwise, exceeds the factory specifications. Also I wish that when using Netflix you could add to your queue directly from the device. I highly recommend this device.
