Look at the back side of the TV .
There will be [more than one] composite video in & out
How composite video port looks like typical 3 RCA jacks - std color of ports are Red, White & Yellow. The yellow one is the one - which carries video signal. You can connect - a RCA cable from output of SC-HT730 [yellow] to back of TV.
Most probably there will be at least one Component video behond your TV set [ if the set is HD Ready one] - in other words, If your TV supports component in.
Component Video ports are namsed as Y Pb Pr - if you have so, connect output from SC-HT370 to back of TV.
Recommendation: choose component video - if that is supported in both. That gives much better picture quality.

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.
Use an optical cable from ps3 to surround sound and hdmi from ps3 to tv.... But I can't get my samsung surround sound to come out of the tv with built in freeview either. Just wondering if you figured it out. Cheers
connect audio cables from the audio out jacks on your tv to the audio in jacks on your samsung surround. they may be labeled video 1,2 or aux. if your using a cable box the cable box may have optical or digital input jacks. your samsung surround should have a digital in jack which requires an optical cable.
How can I get surround sound to work on my tv. When I pull up my menu and go to audio the SRS Trusurround XT is not in bold so I cant figure how to connect it so I can have the surround sound coming from the system and not from the tv. Please help.
It depends on what you currently have as equipment.
You'll have to have something that outputs in digital audio (coaxial or optical). Either your reciever (Cable/Satellite) or the TV. You'll just hook that up to the Surround Sound unit and then just turn on the Surround System when you want surround sound.
You'll have to connect the TV as you would normally with audio cables sicne you'll want stereo sound on the regualr channels.
There are 2 ways you can accomplish this.First is the least quality which is via coax.What you want to do is connect the cable service coming from the wall to the input on your cable box.Then the TV output on the cable box goes to the input on your surround sound then the coax goes from the surround sound to the coax input on the TV.The second is to Connect using the RCA AV1 input.what you want to do is look at the back of the digital cable box and locate the OUTPUTS for the RCA jacks(or AV output)connect RCA cables (yellow red white) to the 1st INPUT on your surround sound.depending on models you should have a couple of different INPUTS for a signal.Choose one and plug it in.After that take a second pair of RCA cables and connect them to video OUTPUT on the surround sound and connect them to your AV1 OUTPUT on your TV.With the original remote for your TV,NOT the cable universal one,Look for an INPUT button on the remote.Some are called input some are called SOURCE,TV/VIDEO basically it tells the TV what signal source to look at on the back of the TV.If you dont have the remote put the TV on channel 3 then press the channel down button and when the TV gets to channel 1 press it again and it should start cycling through the AV inputs,choose AV1.
Once you have done this you have correctly
hooked everything up,BUT Like I said depending on the model of surround sound you are going to have to CHOOSE or physically select or "tell" the surround sound receiver which input to RECEIVE the sound through.In general the INPUT on the back of the surround sound will be labeled with something like Video IN,VCR IN, DVD IN and so forth.Make sure the surround sound is selected to Receive the sound coming from the digital box.Sometimes there is a dial on the front of the surround sound that allows you to select which INPUT on on the back becomes active .make sure that what you have selected matches what you have your cable box is connected to.Hope this helps!
YES check your connections and make sure you have selected the right INPUT signal source on your surround sound just remember RCA cables (yellow red white) goes from digital box,CABLE or SATELLITE OUTput to surround INput from there connect another RCA cable from the OUTPUT of the surround sound to the AV1 Input on the TV make sure AV1 is selected on the TV,if you dont know how just put the TV on channel 3 then press the channels down button and when the TV gets to channel 1 the next channel down from that should be AV1.Also make sure you have selected the right INPUT for the surround sound.
If you are not using RCA jack and just coax follow or you dont have a digital box.Connect the cable from the wall to the INput
on the surround sound the the cable OUT to the tv make sure the surround sound is Looking for a signal from the coax.
I could only get surround sound for DVD, NOT cable/TV--regular audio jacks only give stereo for cable/tv, NOT surround sound. Very disappointing. Any thoughts/solutions for how to get surround sound? Cable box has digital output, but no input on the rtd 315, any help available? THX
Connect the PS3 to your TV with the hdmi cable and to the surround sound system with a digital optical cable, then set your PS3 to output sound through the optical port (through the sound options menu) and you're good to go!
A few questions...
What components are involved?
How are they connected?
Can you hear sound from the speakers for any other input device i.e. radio, cd, vhs, etc.?
I suspect that there is an issue with the way the system is connected.
I have the Surround sound output from my DVD player connected to the digital surround sound input on my reciever.
I'm using digital coax cable (looks like a "normal" RCA cable), not the optical fiber connection. I had to buy a special cable for the digital surround sound. A normal RCA cable would not work. I don't know why. If you're using a similar connection, that could be your issue.
make sure that the output and inputs you're using are compatible. A digital surround sound connection (in or out) can't be connected to an analog connector (in or out). Remember, Digital to Digital with a Digital capable cable; Analog to Analog with an Analog capable cable.
If this is not your issue, post back here with more info and we'll see what we can figure out.
