Composite audio input plays quietly

When I connect an alternate audio source to the "VCR" audio jacks, they play very quietly. Consequently, I have to crank the volume on the unit up to max, and even then it's not loud enough sometimes. Is there any way I can independently adjust the volume of the VCR audio input?

Re: Composite audio input plays quietly

4 longshots to try, in case you haven't allready: 1. try connecting using a different cable 2. what are you trying to connect to the VCR out? note that CD players(other personal players as well) have a headphone jack and a line out jack, and you dont allways get the same vulume output from them. 3. in case you do have it connected to the line out, try connecting a different device, because some players have lower volume levels than others, which bring me to 4. some players have a setting that lowers volume level in order to protect your hearing when using headphones. you might have to disable that. I never ran across any receiver that let you adjust volume levels of individual outs, but it might be possible that a part needs replacement, or to get amped up, have more power directed to it. consult a service man. offcourse if you're still under warranty use it, go complain... Good luck!

How are you connecting the devices?

If you have used the cable box audio out (RCA) to the audio in (the ones just right of the digital coax audio out and the S-video out) on the home theater system, make sure that you have selected the correct Source. (Use the Source button on the front of the system to select AV1 or AV2. This toggles between AV1, AV2, tuner and DVD. It's the right-most button below the display screen. Alternatively, use the Tuner/Aux button (second from the bottom on the left) on the remote.) Note with this connection, the video source cable should go to the TV directly. Unless it is a composite video signal. Then connect the RCA video out (REC out). Make sure that the audio digital output is off. Press Setup/Exit (just above and to the right of the arrow keys) on the remote. Go to the audio menu (press the left arrow key twice) and press OK. The first item in the list is the digital output and should be blank unless you are feeding the audio to another system.

Next try a different audio cable and check that your speaker wires are all connected. Check that the cable box is getting power and a signal from the provider. Connect it to the TV to recheck. If it isn't, make sure that the cables didn't come loose on the box while you were making the connections to add the system.

If you have a newer cable box with HDMI or digital audio out, these most be connected differently. A digital to analog audio converter will work with the second option. For an HDMI connection, connect that cable to the TV, then connect the TVs analog audio out to the NS-H2002. Then go to the Audio menu of the TV and turn on the external audio and turn off the internal speakers. (If your TV has a headphone jack as the only analog out, then this step may not be needed. However, you'll need a 3.5 mm to RCA stereo cable or adapter.)

Check if the audio works with another source (like a DVD). If another external source works, then it's the cable box or the connections to it. If no external sources work but you can here a DVD play, it's probably the input jacks on the system.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with more information about the cable box outputs and the TVs inputs and outputs if you need additional assistance.

Why? no sound from the speskers at all.

There are a few things that could cause no sound and although some are obvious I'll got through them all..

1) Sound is on Minimum

2) Sound is Muted

3) No Power to Subwoofer

4) Speakers connected Incorrectly or Faulty

5) No AUDIO IN connections to TV-IN or AUX-IN

6) Incorrect Input Source is Selected (See Below)

Connecting audio from TV

When connecting the audio output from your TV to this Home Theater Audio System, you will have the sound of the

you want to play.


Use a coaxial cable (not supplied) to connect the DIGITAL IN jack on this DVD system to the DIGITAL OUT jack on

How do i connect my system to a vcr and the tv

Read the manual.

Hopefully, your unnamed TV has Component (3-wire) and Composite (1-wire) Video Inputs. You RCA would use the Component Out to the TV (page 2).

Page 17: VCR audio to the AUX jacks on the RCA. Run the (probably) composite (single-wire) video straight from the VCR to the TV.

remember on thing when you connect the component video, be sure to connect the red to red, green to green and blue to blue. if not you will not get the correct video. will become out of sync or black&white

Can I get surround sound while watching TV programs with this system abd if so how do I connect to TV

Yes, IF your cable or satellite box has an optical digital audio out connector...

Page 10: "Connecting a digital component"


When playing a video component such as a DBS tuner or cable box;

• To listen to the sound, select "AUX DIGITAL" as the source to play.

(See page 14.)

• To see the picture, connect the video output jack of the component to

the video input jack of the TV directly, and select the correct input
mode on the TV.

Connect lifestyle 48 to plasma and dvr

You need to buy a Bose VS 2, video enhancer. Your cable/sattelite, vcr and aux connect to the VS 2 and the VS2 connects one HDMI cable to the TV. The VS2 then upconverts DVDs played on the lifestyle through the VS2/HDMI.

How do you tape on vcr from a vcr?

The 'quick and dirty' way is to connect the VCR playing the tape via the RF OUTPUT coaxial connector to the RF (sometimes ANTENNA) connector on the recording VCR with it set to channel three or four. BOTH units must be set to the SAME channel. The better way is to use the RCA jacks and all but the very oldest should have a yellow jack (Video) output connected to the other unit's (yellow) video input and for sound, the output white jack connected to the white input jack (left channel) and the red output jack would go to the red input jack on the recording unit. This latter method yields a cleaner signal than the first method.

Multiple Video Sources hooked to RT2600, but only DVD shows

I own the RCA RT2600 Home Theater System. I have never set it up, it has never been used. I have someone who wants to buy just the receiver and nothing else. I am wondering what you paid for just the receiver? I don't want to break up the system but I need money right now. I am open to suggestions as to what to do and how much to sell them for.

No Sound In Home Theater with Dish HDTV DVR Dual Mode Remote Connection

HDTV is not carried via coaxial cable from tuner, you need HDMI or the 5 RCA cables that are different colors. I forget if they are called component or composite, I think they are called composite, the R and W are sound. If you run the HDMI or composite cables to your TV, there should be a variable out or audio out on the back of the TV that outputs ANY sound coming into the TV, like Wii, DVD, tv, etc. So if you want to listen to tv sound, just pipe the audio out to the receivers available input and turn it up. Cant be used with mag input (turntable) all others are compatible. Did this answer your question? Sat cables are usually kept under 130 ft from the dish, and the dish receiver can output coaxial signal over 400ft on RG-6 cable. HDMI is limited and can get very expensive. Does your sat box have a coaxial digital out (orange RCA) you can use that if your receiver can read it, usually associated with the DVD input or video input, but only for digital encoded programs.
