So i don't know if there is a solution to this, but i sure hope so.
As a house-warming gift, my aunt gave me her Home Cinema set (Panasonic SC HT500). I decided to install it in our upstairs room where we watch most of our movies, but the problem is we do this via online streaming services such as Netflix. Now i thought i could install the home cinema as usual, plug in my laptop via HDMI to the TV and we could enjoy our enhanced sound.... but when i switched my TV to the HDMI input, the sound didn't come through the cinema speakers, it came through the TV speakers. And the sound of my TV input was coming through the cinema speakers (even though the TV was on HDMI). Now there is an option on the Home Cinema that says "VCR/AUX" so i tried connecting my laptop to the home cinema with an aux cable, but no result (not even sound).
My next thought was to search for a Scart to HDMI cable and try to connect the Home Cinema to my laptop (so the Home Cinema would think my laptop is the TV) and connect my laptop to the TV with a second HDMI. But before i did so, i thought i would ask this here.
Do you guys think this will work? If no, what could work?
