HDMI carries both video and audio.
Do you get video and audio on TV. Just to be sure.
Now are the external speakers powered ?
are you connecting the Speakers to Audio Out of the TV ?
By the way, I cannot see any RCA port that is output port on your NEC plasma. NEC 50XM4 User Manual Specifications The audio input is for audio from dvd for example.
Since the NEC is not a TV but a monitor, it does not have a tuner nor speakers that it why it has no RF input. So if you want to watch TV on it you need a cable box with an HDMI and an audio out, and a pair of amplifed speakers. You can use the cable box's universal remote to turn your monitor on and off.
To get TV video, get an HDMI-to-component video (red/blue/green) cable then to get audio connect the cable box's red/white RCA audio out with an inexpensive set/pair of amplified PC speakers. For this you need a 3.5mm-to-RCA adapter to hook these up properly.
Because the audio is coming from independently powered speakers, it will be nice to have a set that goes on standby when there is no audio signal from the cable box. This would eliminate the need for you to stand up and power off the speakers when you have shut down your TV (monitor) and cable box. Or even better, get one that has a remote so that you can raise or lower the volume or power off as needed.
you cannot use the ybp The wii and playstation only have one video cord (yellow) and 2 audio cords (red & white) You can only hook up these wires to the same on tv. If you don't have this option, I suggest using a vcr or some type of converter
You are correct in having concerns. Many articles on the web say cut two holes, run the wiring and you're done. This is incorrect, unsafe, and can void your insurance policy in case of a fire.
Many local building codes are based on the National Electrical Code (NEC).
First, the NEC does not allow flexible power cords (or extension cords) to be mounted inside of walls. This means you can't run the TV power cord inside the wall. So a new AC wall socket will have to be installed where it will be hidden by the plasma when mounted.
Second, all wiring run inside a wall must be rated by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) as Class 3, or CL-3. This means the cables between your cable box, DVD player, etc. must all be UL CL-3 rated. Fortunately, CL-3 rated HDMI, Component, Coax, and other cables are available. They are just a little harder to find and will cost a little more.
Third, make sure the wall mount you purchase can handle the weight of your plasma and is securely bolted into the wall studs.
If you follow this advice, you will pass inspection by even the most picky home inspectors and insurance companies.
Yes,there is a cable RF connector on the back of this TV (see diagram). After you connect the cable you need to access the menu to autoprogram the channels.Since you don't have the original remote to do this,you might be able to work thru the menus using the menu button on the TV itself.
Something in the path to drive the other half of the screen has failed or is broken.
Need some basic troubleshooting information in order to be any more specific, but I've seen this problem before with NEC plasmas.
If still under warranty better use it
