Re: Attaching a surround sound to a Hitachi 60CX29B
The red green and blue are component video
to get the surround sound to work the red and white audio outputs from the tv go to the audio inputs on the reciever , and to get the digital surround sound the optical also has to be hooked up

For a simple stereo connection If you have a spare set of inputs (CD, AUX, video but NOT Phono/LP) on your receiver, preamp or whatever makes your speakers make noise that accept a pair of red/white RCA type inputs connect the OUTPUT of either your cable box, satellite receiver or TV audio Left & Right (red & white RCA jacks) to the INPUT of your receiver. If your cable or satellite receiver has a digital OUTPUT (either optical or coaxial) and your receiver has a like INPUT and 5.1 surround sound capability you can connect that to give you a surround sound mix.
I don't know which receiver you have but, I can give you a basic idea. You need RCA cables Yellow for Video, Red and White for Audio. You may not need to connect the Yellow cable for the Video again, it depends on the receiver you're using. Basically, to get the TV sound from your Surround system, you only need the white and Red RCA cables. Connect one side of the RCA cable white & Red to the receiver (IN) and the other side of the RCA Cable to the TV or cable box (out) You need to select the source on the receiver, AUX or Video.
I could help better if I knew which receiver, if you're using a cable box and how are you getting TV signal? do you select CH 3 or AV to watch TV?

In most cases the TV is used just as an input device, and they frequently have no output jacks. Usually the TV is hooked up as part of a home theater system, and is used as a video monitor while the sound is taken care of by a receiver or amplifier. The sound comes from the video source (DVD player, set-top box, etc.). Some TV sets have audio output available, but it sounds like yours doesn't. If you want to have surround sound, you'll need to invest in a receiver and speakers.
On your component cable (GREEN/BLUE/RED) check the connector for the RED on on both the TV and the device it is connected to. Also check the the RED for the VIDEO and the RED for the AUDIO are not switched on both the TV and the device as well.
You'll need a DVD player that has component outputs. The composite carries the entire video information, while the component sends the three different color signals separately. The red and white cables are output cables. No all DVD players have the component outputs.
It sounds connections are not matched yet. Make sure connections are green to green, red to red and blue to blue in dvd player and tv are correct. Try another component video cable. If problem still exist, test dvd player to any other tv, found ok then component input of this TV is bad, need to get it repaired.
tart checking the cable connection to receiver, try moving or replacing cables.
If you have a surround with external speakers check surround connection cable and speakers wiring.
If the cables are OK, then the unit may be faulty.
that case the fault can be either the audio board (often audio circuit
is integrated on the main board) , or the sinput output signal board. Also a contact on connection to internal speakers can give you same problem.
You can just use any standard component cable Red/Green/Blue doesnt have to be anything fancy, I dont really buy into monster cables being that much better than just standard quality cables from Walmart/Kmart
On this TV there is only one input for any HD resolution. Input # 5 is the component input i.e. red/green/blue cable. Just get the correct cable and match colors from cable box to TV this will allow the TV to display 1080i resolution ( only one this TV supports ). FYI you will also have to connect the red and white cables to the appropriate inputs to get any sound because red/green/blue connectors are just for video display not sound. Once your connected you'll be able to access video # 5 be sure to set your cable box to 1080i resolution also. I hope this helps later J.
