Summary: I have a Samsung TV like an earlier poster. I found that by running leads from the TV audio out, to the Panasonic's aux audio in, then going into the tv menu and setting it for external speakers, this system works fine in TV mode. Setup was easy and sound is great. This one is a keeper.
Summary: Like others, the DVD/CD changer broke, in my case after about two years, and not because a kid jammed a disk in the wrong way. With a disk correctly in place, it began grinding gears and stopped working. Now I can't use other functions because it can't seem to ignore the disk problem.
Summary: I'm returning this. I've had it a week and do not like it. There are only 4 sound settings! You can't even control treble and bass like in most stereos. The sound is not great at all. Not enough bass even when the woofer is all the way up and the bass boost is on.
Summary: Yes, this might be a bit deficient for more experienced buyers looking for a feature-rich home theater system that is beyond what I need or could even use at this point. Rather, I wanted something that was easy to set up, had some basic settings and features, and above all - sounded good.
Summary: purchased this unit from costco @[...]., I have a Samsung LN A 46 TV . Hooked the panasonc 956 up to tv using HDMI,No sound thru system while in TV mode. Called Samsung ... no help, called panasonic tech said to get opti cable. Bought cable at sears[@[...
Summary: I bought this dvd/stereo system to get me by for my year tour in Korea since i couldn't bring much with me. When i got it i felt the speakers were pretty cheaply made, especially the front with the flimsy thin/hollow plastic base. The sound quality was decent enough to get me by for the year.

Summary: If you looking for a HTIB this System is great with it's 1000w sounds comming through-out your room. Have a HDMI connection for the upconversion five disc DVD plaver, just awesome for the price. Exactly what I was looking for with the intergrated I-pod system and rear wireless speakers.
