Since your output is coaxial (rca) you should be able to find an input for coaxial that will work on your surround the setting on your surround will be either coaxial or digital input,
hope this helps
it would help if you said what kind and model of surround you have

How do I connect my flat screen tv to my Phillips MX3900 system


This is an older home theater package and only has component video out for HD and RCA or SPDIF optical out for audio. You'll need to locate the component video input on the back of your flat panel and connect it to the component output of the Phillips unit. Component cables have 3 RCA cable (Red, Blue, Green) for HD. You can use a RED/WHITE RCA cable for audio but if you have a SPDIF Optical cable you should use that for better sound. The TV should have that as an input also. You will need to go into the Menu for the TV and select component video and SPDIF optical if you went that route for audio.

Do i need to buy anything extra for my ilive 37' soundbar for my tv? The sound doesnt work with my tv, but the bluetooth works just fine.


You'll need some sort of audio cable to connect the TV's sound or audio output to the soundbar. For the most basic connection, use an RCA-style cable ( like the one found here: http://goo.gl/5F8yLh ) to connect your TV's audio output to the soundbar's input. Most soundbars also have an SPDIF input ( like the one found here: http://goo.gl/2F2rKs ) and most modern TV's have an SPDIF output. Get an SPDIF optical digital audio cable to connect the two devices together. Once you've decided which type of connection to use and have connected the TV's audio output the soundbar, then make sure you select the proper input on the soundbar. That should fix your problem.

I Just recently bought this have it hooked up to my Computer through a Digital audio Coaxial cord . The problem is this 600 - Watt system is emitting less power than the 300 watt one it replaced that was...


Audio power is relevant only between the amp and the speakers. Check the volume setting of the source and any audio settings in the PC.

SPDIF is not Red and White. If anything it is a single coaxial RCA connector.

Wattage specs for comparison are pure fiction at this level. 10% distortion fudges the number upward.

Defeat any bass enhancement in the source until you figure out the level issue.

How do you hook up a home theater system without an out put


Hi, on this TV there is a SPDIF port that they say to hook-up to your home theater system. Depending on your amp receiver if it has an spdif port then thats the way to go. if not then you could always run audio cables from your cable/satellite box to your amp receiver, and the same for your dvd player and any other device. Hope i was of some help : )

I have a 37 WLT 68 TV, is it possible to connect


Strictly speaking, no. Your TV has both a line-level audio output, via RCA cables, and a SPDIF (digital audio output) connector (and a headphone jack). Any of these will output a low-level signal into an stereo amplifier or home theater AV receiver. The speakers would be attached to that separate amplifier unit.

Compatibility fo TV and Sound system


TV has audio outputs, the RCA cable type. If you connect the audio output (red,white) from the TV(look on the back), and connect the RCA cable to Input of home theater system,you should get TV sound from home theater system. You may have to set the audio on the TV for external source. Go to menu, to audio setup, to options. On the Home Theater system, you may have to select the audio source, i.e. audio input 1, etc.
