Are you saying you want to use the optical out feature?
simple way would be to just use an adapter and then a standard optical cable. http://www.amazon.com/Toslink-To-Optical-Mini-Adapter/dp/B0002MQGRM
is an example of one
another option is

Does the LCDVD326A have the ability to attach headphones? If so, where are the connections?


First of all, here's the manual:
http://www.curtisint.com/html/custservice/manuals/CUR_LCDVD326A_EN.PDF

Refer to page 11. Apparently this set only has audio input connections (as analog audio) It does have an audio output but it is digital audio. you can't just plug in speakers or headphones, you need an adapter to convert digital to analog.
If you're a techie and want to know about SPDIF, look here:
Everything You Need to Know About the SPDIF Connection Hardware Secrets

You will need the converter:

Fosmon Digital to Analog Stereo Audio Converter Adapter Changes Digital...

and a cable to connect the adapter to the TV (choose the length you want)

AmazonBasics Digital Optical Audio Toslink Cable 6 Feet 1 8 Meters

they don't make it easy, do they?
Good luck

How do you connect tv audio from vizio wv26l through panasonic saht 680 surround sound?


The SAHT680 only has RCA analog audio inputs. I don't know the WV26l. However, there are a couple of possibilities based on other Vizio models. 1) The audio out is a headphone jack. Use a 3.5 mm M to RCA F/F adapter and then an RCA audio cable to the surround sound system. (You can also use a cable that has the 3.5 mm M and RCA M/M ends or a 3.5 mm F and RCA M/M adapter with a 3.5 mm audio cable.)
2) The audio output is a digital audio out. In that case, you need a digital to analog audio converter. There are a number of models available. One example is here: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=104&cp_id=10423&cs_id=1042302&p_id=6884&seq=1&format=2 . You will also need the correct digital audio cable between the TV and the converter and the RCA audio cable between the converter and your SAHT680.

The manual for the SAHT680 is available from Panasonic here: service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/SAHT680.pdf . See page 25 for the picture of the audio inputs.

I hope this helps.

(The only other option is to upgrade the main unit of the surround sound system to one with digital audio inputs if your TV only has digital audio out.)

I am using an optical cable to from my Panasonic Blu-Ray player to my Cambridge Audio Azur 340R receivable, and the centre speaker is not working


In any 'connection' question there are at least two participants and specific answers require specific details about all components in the path.

Does the center speaker work for just speaker testing? Your unidentified BluRa player has to know there's a Center Speaker, too.

Digital bitstreams don't arbitrarily drop out one channel.

Have you seen the user guide?

The TV is intended to be an end point of the video, not a source of audio. Many TV's (monitors) don't have ANY audio, much less surround sound capability. Composite Video is theminimalist video connection for setup; Component video to the TV should suffice for viewing DVD's.

Is your TV the SOURCE of surround sound programming (via an antenna) or does the programming come from elsewhere like a Cable Box? THAT would be the source you need to tap for surround sound.

All sound should go directly from its origin to the sound systm. All video should go directly from the source to the TV if it has enough inputs. NO signal ever benefits from unnecessary routing and cabling to or through a device that neither uses nor improves it.

Hi, i would like to know if recordings can be downloaded from the Coby CXR190-1G to the computer.


Yes, absolutely!

I'm guessing you don't have the CX-R190 software that's compatible with your OS version.
No problem.

I use a patch cable between the AUDIO IN on my PC and the EAR on the recorder.

Since the ouput of the recorder is monoaural, all you need is a mono (2 wire) lenght of cable with a standard 3.5mm plug at each end. I made one myself, but I guess Radio Shack may have something like this:

If they don't have it, then a STEREO cable (3 wires) will work just fine.
Like this one:

To record the sound you can use any audio recorder.
I use Audacity. It's a freebie and pretty straightforward to use.

After you've plugged it all in, all you need to do is start Audacity and then start to playback the files from your recorder.
When they are on your computer, you can copy, cut, paste, add special effects, and later convert them to MP3 or whatever.

Good luck.

I don't know how long you had this problem nor when it started.
I don't know that it is a poblem, and I don't know if it can be fixed.
Too many variables: the camera, the USB plugs, the USB cable, the software, the possible interference, and so on.

Have you tried to upload the pictures and videos using a card reader?

Hmm, I don't know why the emphasis is in the remote here.

Front panel switches still exist on most products so ramble across the room and try touching it with your finger so we don't have to factor in a possible remote malfunction.

I can't locate a free manual anywhere but YOU should contact Wharfedale and ask them where you could get one because the website only lists a handful of speaker downloads.

http://www.wharfedale.co.uk/Home/tabid/37/Default.aspx

However the digital audio for the "AV" is arriving, it is probably not syncing up or the signal / cable is failing or disconnected. Try swapping with known good cables or input jacks.

I have this receiver hooked up to a Vizio LED tv and a Vizio Blue Ray using HDMI cables. The surround sound works from the speakers while watching a dvd (HDMI -1 connection) but I have no surround sound...


AV cables don't pass surround sound through, they are pretty much just left and right stereo. You need to turn pro logic on on the reciever to "pretend" to play surround. The better option of course would be to use a digital signal like another HDMI cable or digital optical audio from the cable box, if thats what your using.

Digital audio out in XW4300


Right, it uses a fiber optic cable that connects to the "Digital Out" on your computer. There is "harmonic distortion" with the use of the RCA cables; the louder the output volume the greater the distortion. When using the "Digital Audio Cable" the is only pure data signal, aka DSP (Digital Signal Processing), because the two devices communicate with Infrared light flashes through the fiber optic cable; trust me you can hear the difference. You may need to buy one of those cables if your receiver did not come with one.
