My TV has only one audio output. It is a coaxial digital type (orange rca shaped jack). It outputs only when receiving a digital tv signal from my cable provider. If the RCA RTD 215 has no digital coaxial audio input, is there any low cost system ($100-200) that does?

Typically you will connect the RCA audio output jacks to the audio input jacks on the sound bar, but if your television does not have RCA audio output, you may have to buy additional hardware to make the soundbar work. If your TV has a headphone jack, then you will need to purchase an 1/8" Headphone connector to RCA Connector cable from a local electronics or audio store. If your TV doens't have any audio outputs, you may need to purchase a digital tuner box and connect it to your TV and soundbar.
RF MODULATOR HOOKUP For a TV with only a RF input jack, a RF Modulator can be used to hookup DVD players, DVD recorders and other devices which output RCA composite video and audio. For example, analog cable TV can be connected using a RG-6 type coaxial cable to a VCR or older DVD recorder's analog cable ready tuner RF input. Then as shown above, the output can be connected to the TV thru the RF modulator. The modulator outputs on channel 3 or 4 for the older TV so the TV is set to channel 3 or 4. Some RF modulators are built-in to Audio/Video switch boxes. These allow multiple RCA inputs along with RF input.
RF MODULATOR CLOSE-UP The modulator converts signals to channel 3 or 4 so older TVs can tune them on their analog tuners channel 3 or 4.
Basic DVD player hookup to TV cable diagram. RCA cable (yellow) video and RCA cables (white and red) audio. This is all you need for picture and sound. If your TV only has a single RF input, then you need a RF modulator. RF modulators accept the yellow, white and red cables and output a coaxial cable to the TV single input jack. Usually the TV is tuned to channel 3 or 4 to pickup the RF modulators output.
Alternative connection options are many and include HDMI for HDTVs, component video and for sound, surround sound digital audio connection using optical or coaxial digital audio cable.
Surround sound requires a decoder such as a A/V receiver with Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS 5.1 or more. 6 speakers connected to the A/V receiver surrounds the listener.
Bluray players will play DVDs and Bluray discs. Bluray gives you High Definition video and typically connects to a HDTV using a HDMI cable. dvd_howtoconnect.htm for more information and pictures on DVD player hookups.
Hi,here is my solution... If
you want to listen your TV on your Stereo system thru your receiver,
** you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" of your TV ** to "AUX input "
or "TV" OR "Any input" of your receiver ( except Phone ) or "Optic Cable input" ** than just switch to
respective mode on RECEIVER corresponding your RCA or Optic connection... There you go..Your TV sound is on the Receiver.. ---------------------------- If you want to display your DVD on the TV,than do everything visa versa..as; **connect "Video Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" of your Receiver ** to "Video input " or "Optic Cable input" of your TV and make a selection corresponding input of TV Hope this helps! Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up to continue for Helping out the Community :)
Yes this can be done. You have several options for audio hookup. Stereo 2-channel (white and red) RCA cables, digital audio (optical or coaxial) or HDMI. Your home theater must have the inputs available such as optical, coaxial etc. Typically the stereo 2-channel RCA is the simple way. Just connect from the Bluray audio outputs to the Home theater inputs (white and red) for stereo sound. Select the input on the home theater. For Dolby Digital 5.1 use optical digital audio cable (black port) or coaxial (orange RCA port) from Bluray to similar home theater input.
Hi, How to connect your cable to your home theater system depends on several factors. So what I'll do is try to cover all of them. If your home theater RECEIVER has various types of inputs then there will be several ways to do it. If your cable box has various types of outputs there will also be several ways to do this. Let's start with the basics. All cable boxes that I have seen have Red colored and White colored (RCA type) stereo outputs. This also applies to any stereo or Home theater system which will have multiple inputs of the same type and color. If you connect a cable between the cable box's Stereo Outputs and into the cable (or satellite audio inputs of the Home Theater system. Then Switch the Home theater input to the same input, that will work.
If the cable box has an coaxial digital output ORANGE "RCA" TYPE PLUG) and the receiver has the same, connect a single RCA connector between the two. Then go into the input menu of the receiver and change that to digital as opposed to analog. (The red and white ones)
If the two pieces, Receiver and Cable box have optical connectors (little black square door with a red light behind it). Use that and set up the Receiver to receive a digital audio input. With either the coaxial or optical connections used. You will have full surround sound when it is being broadcast.
Another possibility is that the receiver has discrete RCA input connectors for Left and Right Front, Center, Left and Right Rear and Sub Woofer. Again, if the cable box has these, have at it.
The last one is really simple. If your equipment is relatively new there will be an HDMI connector on the back of the Receiver. If there is one on the cable box, which often there is for HD cable. Get a single HDMI cable and connect the two together.
I think that is all I know about the subject. It might be a good idea to print this little article I wrote for you and use it as a reference while looking at the back sides of your home theater receiver and cable box. I hope I've been a help to you. Please let me know. Best Regards, Mark
Hi! It would just be easy. Just prepare RCA cables and connect the cables to the tv and satellite receiver. Link the TV and satellite audio output to the BOSE audio input. Good luck and have a good one!
Well, if analog works for you connect the CD player's analog RCA cables to the VCR inputs.
Can you imagine why you NEED to have the TV audio coming into the receiver from the TV? Are the TV's audio system or speakers superior to the audio section of every other source of TV-related programming? We hope not. Does the TV receive any programming that the receiver can not? Maybe games. I imagaine this MIGHT justify running analog TV audio back to the receiver.
Your cable box and your DVD player have both digital and analog audio outputs. The gray area is what your TV has for audio inputs. It could survive with simple RCA analog audio in from both and none to or from the receiver. Then you could watch Lo-Fi cable and DVD's without the receiver turned on.
That would free up the TV analog audio input for other things.
I imagine your DVD player is using one of the digital inputs on the receiver. If you have one each optical and coaxial audio output among your DVD and Cable Box you could place them in the two available diigital inputs.
Now, what about the CD's digital output? For stereo music you're not likely to be able to hear any difference between it and the analog input BUT it can still be connected digitally IF it has a coaxial output. Coaxial digital inputs can be shared.
Get an RCA-splitter and join the two units entering the coaxial audio input just before they enter that connection. Either will work just fine if you TURN THE OTHER ONE OFF when you want to us it.
If it has the same inputs as yours, you need an "optical" cable that will go from the TV "output" to the RCA system "optical input" and a "Coaxial Digital" cable from your DVD player to the "Coaxial Digital input of the receiver. Not knowing what kind of TV you are hooking this up to... If it's and LCD,Plasma, or Digital TV, it will have an optical audio out. if it's not one of these, post the model number of your TV & I'll check it. If you are using Cable TV/Satellite or FIOS, Great! then you can run the optical cable from the back of the cable box to the receiver. If you need any more help, just post a comment and I can help you some more.
Hmm. let me see if I get U correctly.
you use u'r theater system with a TV and the audio is fed via optical or U have DVD player that you can feed the audio via optical or coax. I think it is the later, if it is U could be having trouble with sound decoding setting of the DVD player itself. It's like mpeg out or PCM out instead of full DTS or 5.1 dolby digital decoding. If this is the case just use u'r dvd remote and check the audio play back settings. If this does not solve u'r problem, pls state u'r set up briefly, so tht I can understand the type of connection u use.
