Give the whole setup. You've not mentioned an amp.

The CT-28V is a pre-amp, you also need an amp, what amp are you using? Audio out on Sat receiver to audio in pre-amp (pick what input you want depending on what is labeled on the back of the pre-amp. The VCR's have a in/out loop that would probably not work, try either CD or LD. I'm sure you already have a CD so run your audio in to the LD (Laser Disc) This should work, your only trying to get the audio. On your pre-amp run the Right/Left audio out to your amp. When selecting your Sat, select LD and you should have audio. I could be wrong, but this is what I'd try. Good luck

yep thats how I have my sat hooked up.
just pick an unused input, and you should be good to go...
does your sat reciever have a volume output controll settting?
maybe its turned all the way down.
my sony does not.
