Can i run my cable box thru the rtd 120 to my tv to get cable


Why bother?

Generally speaking, I'd run the best Cable Box audio to the RTD and the best Cable Box video directly to the TV if you don't want to risk problems inherent with extra unnecessary (and expensive) video cabling.

The RTD120 has no digital audio inputs so you're limited to RCA-type analog TV audio. Bummer.

Adding another device to the system


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.

We have a RTD259 RCA 5 disc home theatre system but we do not have the manual, the spaekers work for the AM/FM radio and the Disc Changer but can't get volume from T.V, do we have our cables plugged in...


Fist off, do you have Satelite TV or cable box? if so you need to run you audio wires from the audio out on those devices. If not from your TV should be audio out L&R to you audio input on your RTD259, now you may have a specific input for your TV, or you may not. If there is no specific inout for TV, there should be at least one AUX audio and video input open on your unit. Hope this helps, Cali

I just bought a RCA rtd3131 home theater system. My husband trashed the manual and i can't get all the speakers to work when the cable is on. When the DVD is on all the speakers work but the sound is not...


If the cable tv has audio out jacks, or if you have a cable box with an optical audio cable, plug either the audio jacks into the RCA system or the optical audio cable, and the system should automatically simulate 5.1, through Dolby Pro Logic II. All speakers will not be at the same volume as they are simulating surround sound, not just playing the audio.

The TV will never have sound for the DVD as this system has no audio out puts. Realistically, most televisions have 10w speakers, and this system is 130w, so the TV speakers are useless in comparison.

Setting up the surround sound


Make sure the TV is 'looking' at the right input. If your system is connected to A/V input 1, then make sure the TV is set to that input. If everything is ok there, pressing MENU should bring it up. It's easiest if there is nothing in the DVD player.

You can also download the manual from RCA's site. CLick the link below to get it.

RCA RT2280 surround sound mode button wont select 5.1 dolby digital mode.


I had the same problem and this is what I did to fix it. Assuming that all of your equipment is powered on, (tv, blu-ray/dvd, rca receiver) you'll need to go into your dvd players audio menu and select the dolby digital audio.
Once you do this, the digital signal is sent to your receiver from the dvd. The receiver should automatically set itself to the dolby digital preset. If it doesn't, press the surround button until you reach it. I found part of this information here. And the rest was personal experience.
Also, it depends on if the disc format is in dolby 5.1. I hope this helps you.

If you are using the component video inputs, check your component video connections. You may have the Pb and Pr connections reversed or not plugged in at all. All three (Y,Pb, and Pr) are needed for it to work right. Also make sure that you have the component cables from the home theatre going to the component inputs on the TV. You can get the manual at the link below if you need it.
