Hi to connect your ps3 to your tv all you would need is a hdmi to hdmi connector which would mean the sound would come straight out of your tv. The sound comes directly out of the hdmi cable. If you want to connect the ps3 to an external reciver you might want to get an AV reciver with HDMI inputs. This would connect to your tv and you can switch channels to different sources connected into the receiver, also they come with very good seperate speakers so you wouldnt have to use you telly speakers and you can connect your directv box into it aswell.

Alternatively you can connect the audio phono outputs from your AV multiout connector on your ps3 (the cable should be provided) to a seperate sound system with phono AUX inputs, these are found on most soundsystems but check with whoever your buying it from. But this means that you cant use the HDMI output of your PS3 for video just the AV multiout video signal (which is a bit rubbish, so I suggest the latter solution.

Hope this solves your problem

My a102jamo surround sound speakers and working


The Jamo speakers need an AV Receiver to drive them properly. The TV doesn't have the correct outputs nor does it have the power required.

The Jamo kit consists of a powered subwoofer ans 5 small surround speakers. Each surround speaker needs to be powered by the speaker output from an an AV Receiver. The subwoofer should also be connected to the receiver, but the connection is a phono/RCA lead from the receiver's "Sub Out" socket.

Your TV connects to the AV receiver via the Optical out.

Do not know how to wire my sa-w10 speakers together


For surround sound, you need an A/V receiver with 5.1 or 7.1 surround capability. Depending on what kind of receiver you have, the DVD player, satellite/cable box, etc hooks to the receiver, those signals go out to the TV, and the speakers hook to the receiver. The receiver decodes the signal from the cable/satellite box or DVD player and routes it to the appropriate speakers. If the TV program or DVD isn't HD or coded for surround sound, the best you can expect is 2.1 channel stereo sound. OR, you can hook everything (DVD, satellite/cable box) to the TV and run an optical cable from the Digital Output of the TV to the receiver, which is basically the same thing, just a different way to hook everything up. Hope this helps

How can i directly connect a LG H30 TV, or a PS3 or a Wii to a Regent HT391 sound system? Is it possible to? So far the only 'surround sound' I can achieve is by connecting my tv thru the cable box...


According to the various vendors that carry this model, the unit has multiple inputs to accommodate gaming systems, dvd, tv, etc.

Look on the back of your system and see if there are inputs labeled as Game, DVD, TV, etc. You should be able to connect each component, and use the remote to switch between the multiple sources.

Good luck.

I have my ps3 connected to my t.v via HDMI, but want to get surround sound on my ps3, how can i do this as my receiver doesnt have optical or hdmi outputs?


Does your TV have any audio outputs at all? It is a new feature of a lot of TV's to have at least an Optical output. Use that to run back into your receiver if available.

Can you hook Logictech x-540 to a tv for surround sound


this is a direct connect meaning you have to have a connection for every channel. So if your tv has outputs for 5.1 channels then yes you can but most tv's dont output this just stereo, meaning you will only get sound out of your left and right channel because most likely your tv might have the red and white outputs for right and left.
There is no dolby processor in the speaker system to take a 2 channel input and make it into 5.1. This is usually done through your sound card or your receiver. Some receivers will have preouts for this. i dont know if you have an amplifier hooked up to the tv if so you can see if your receiver has those pre-out connections.
i hope this helps clarify the situation.

We have a Sony Trinitron and a Sony STR-K670P. We use to have it hooked up to a DVR, but now we went down to basic cable. I can't seem to get sound to come through my surround system. Any advise out there?...


if your trying to use the dvr still your probably not connecting it all properly. make sure that. having a sony trinitron you have alot of connections on the back. if you connect all of the accessories that you have on your tv directly into each input and use the tvs main output connection to connect straight to your surround sound. this should fix your problem. plus you wont have a bunch of stuff hooked up to your surround sound receiver

Friend gave me a jbl surround system to go with my 52" sony hd tv. It has four speakers. three sat 20 and one bass 20. going to a rca stva 3970 receiver. didn't have instructions to go with it.


You need two more speakers to get surround sound,ie> two front one center and two for surround,then you need a home cinema amp to run the speakers and decode the sound from your tv,sky,dvd etc,and the sub gives you your bass.

Hope this helps.

No sound when using dish or regular tv


This may be old news but just in case ...

Typically you need to consider the surround system as the central point for sound distribution (and in newer receivers, the distribution point for video signal as well). So you need to think of your TV and Satellite as sound sources and connect them to the IN side of your surround sound system. From the back of your TV then, look for the Audio OUT (commonly Red for right and White (or black) for Left. Connect these to the IN on the back of the surround system. Likewise for your satellite box. Then make sure you select the appropriate source on the surround system. If the system supports the video signal, you can route that as well. Beware that you'll need some sort of simulation (provided by the Phillips unit) to upconvert stereo to surround ... check the manual online. If you post model numbers for the Phillips and satellite units, we might be able to direct you more specifically (provided we can find manuals online)
