    if I am correct, your unit came with two speakers and a subwoofer correct?
    if so, do you have the speaker system connected to the DVD player?


  • Mike H. Nov 12, 2008

    Ok, thanks, '

    You forget to give me one more information "What is the model of the DVD player and the Television." I need the television model number.

    The problem seems to come from, if you have the yellow wire connected to the Televesion, you have to make sure that the red and white wire is connected to the same input line as the yellow wire.


  • Mike H. Nov 12, 2008

    Ok so you have sound from the television and want the sound coming from the subwoofer speaker system as well. Well that is very easy. You will need to buy an a audio splitter. see image below

    and a audio cable, that consist of the red and white cable.">

    The splitter will be connected from the red and white cable from from the DVD player. DVD player.
    And the Audio cables will use one of the splitter connection for the TV and for the Subwoofer.

Trying to get my ps3, Emerson hd tv and coby DVD938 home theater all to work together

The DVD938 only has analog audio input (2.1 channel), thats why you have only a white (left channel) and red (right channel) audio connection from your ps3 to the home theatre. There is an option called PROLOGIC in the setup menu that will simulate 5.1 with the 2.1, it basically takes the 2.1 channels and splits it into all the speakers.

Check the settings on your tv. Many tv's need to have the internal speakers turned off in order for audio to be output from rear jacks.

How do i hook up a rca Rtd325w dvd home theater to a coby tft lcd flatscreen

You can use either the multi pin connector cable, or plug the white, yellow and red cables to the TV set at the DVD player input or "Video 1" and the the audio output of the TV Another red and white set of RCA cables into the audio input of the home theater. This way the TV can play through the home theater system when you are watching cable or over the air.

If you do not want to hear the TV audio, you should go to the audio properties and select "external speaker system" but if you do this the home theater system must be on to hear any audio from the set until you set it back to the TV speakers through the TV's setup menus again.

What outlets do I hook up to on the reciever and the tv for it to play on regular tv stations

Cable Box optical Digital Audio to Coby Digital Audio In. (This brings TV-related multi-channel and normal audio into the Coby so you can hear it over the speakers. Turn TV volume OFF.

The cable box probably has a pair of stereo Audio Out RCA jacks. Run those directly to the TV so you can watch and hear cable programming over the TV's speakers without having to turn the Coby on. Turn TV volume UP.

Depending on your TV's Video In capabilities, use the Cable Box Component (Red, Blue and Green), or Composite Video (single Yellow associated with the Audio Out) directly attached to the TV.

Hi there,

You need to select the source of your home theater system. Press <SOURCE> on the home theater remote to switch between DVD, TUNER, and LINE modes. Select LINE, then you should now hear audio from your TV, Please make sure that your TV is not muted, just increase the volume until you hear audio on home theater. Also increase the volume of your home theater.

Can't get surround sound for tv shows

The coby dvd 988 has 2 rca audio input jacks, you need to have these connected to your TV AUDIO OUT jacks, these are usually colored red and white like right and left stereo jacks, be sure to set up the TV for AUDIO output through these connections, some tv`s require that the internal built in speakers are cancelled and the audio output jacks are enabled. Set the coby input signal to receive the port you pluged the tv signal into.

Am setting up a bose GSX 3-2-1 home theater

Need to know the TV connections. On newer TV's there RCA jack connection or ext speaker connections. Usually the external TV speaker connections hook to the woofer and the rest of the speakers are connected to the woofer. The woofer acts as the sound system for the rest of the speakers. With this method you need to mute the internal TV speakers by a swiich on the TV or internal TV setup menus and select ext speakers.
