Question about Sony HT-DDW740 System
I have a Sony HT-DDW740 surround sound system. Comcast came and brought new cable box, a Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8300HDC, but they hooked it directly to TV. It has five cords, three for video (red blue green) two for audio. I don't know how to connect to the receiver.
I want to connect cable, receiver and
Sony Trinitron TV
Sony DVP-NS715P dvd player
You are using a new HD Cable box, that are using componet video cables for HD, Unfortunetly this receiver does not have componet inputs, so you will just have to run the audio from the televison directly to the receiver by connecting the video out and audio out from the television to the receiver's video Input one. This will require a normal RCA composite cables yellow,red,white. Connect one end of each of the cables to televisions output terminals, and the other to the input one on the receiver. Note: Your TV might have a seperate term called Monitor out, Connect the yellow here, and the red and white to audio out. You can do the same for the DVD but you have to use the same cables,Also the television will not display HD picture this way as this is not a HDTV Receiver. If you just want TV sound to the receiver then do not use the video(Yellow) cable just use the audio out terminals from the tv and connect to Input one on the receiver. you can do this with the cable box also but you have to use RCA type cables . If you want the full HD experience then a new up todate receiver is necessary.
