Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Normally, the colors should be yellow for video, white and red for audio. If you have blue instead of yellow, then pls try:

  • blue from video out of DVR to video in of TV;
  • white and red from audio out L/R to audio in of TV;
  • the S-video need not be connected;
  • select video 1 or video in in the source selection of the TV.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

No volume when HDMI cable is connected to Direct TV DVR

Some DVR's do not send audio via HDMI. Mine doesn't. I have to run audio cables from the DVR to the TV.

Also, check on the TV settings to try alternate audio inputs.

Apex model LE4643T. Why does it have picture but no sound?

I think you are jumping the gun here. My guess is you just have the audio hooked up wrong. I need to know what you are hooking it up to but I am going to guess this is a cable box. Red and white lead need to connect to the out side of the cable box and connect to the in side of the tv. Red is Right and White is Left. The yellow is your video which needs to follow the same connection of ins and outs. Also make sure the audio is set up for coming through the tv and not set up as an external source for audio. This is done through the audio set up menu on your tv.

How do i hook up mono tv with eterxnal speakers with a dvr box

If the DVR has RCA-type connectors, yellow to yellow for picture, and white to white for sound. Tune tv to line input.
If the DVR supports outputting everything on coax, use a piece of coax cable, and tune tv to channel 3.
Your coax cable from wall has to go into DVR first, then out to tv.

Connect set top box to TV. Which coloured plugs do

That model has "SCART" video out on the back of the unit which can be converted to a number of different audio and visual cables which can then be connected to your TV. The RCA (yellow white and red) are the most commonly used and the easiest to set up. From there you can use S-Video, component etc. the manual can be found here: if you are still struggling after taking a look at this, print it out and take it to your local audio visual retailer and they should be able to sort you out with the best cable. Hope it helps.

How do I hook my data projector up to my cable TV?

If the TV offers video and audio outputs, you can connect those to the projector. Otherwise you'll need to use a VCR or DVR as the source. In fact, you don't need a TV set at all if the VCR/DVR you use has TV tuning. Hook the video to the projector, run the audio through your stereo system and you're set.

Just need to know where to plug in the red, green and blue cords

The red-blue-green outputs of the cable box are COMPONENT video, and the yellow-white-red inputs on the tv are COMPOSITE video. Although the words sound almost alike and the connectors look similar, they are incompatible signals. You'll need to change either the cable box or the tv so they match. Maybe this would be a good way to rationalize getting that new home theater system! Or maybe call your tv cable company and ask for a different box with composite video output. Once the cable box matches the tv, you don't necessarily need to change the cables. If the connectors fit, go ahead and use the cables you have.

We can't get the dvr/cable box to work with the tv

Assuming you have connected the DVR/Cable box with a standard co-axial antenna cable, switch on the box and go to the tuning menu on the TV.

Tuning details are in the TV manual. If you don't have the manual, download here:

When tuning is completed go through the channels to find the cable box. (Note: TV will not tune to the box if it is not switched on when tuning)

If there is still no connection, the DVR/Cable box may need connecting with a composite video cable (red / white / yellow RCA connectors), rather than just a standard co-ax cable.

The connection is at the front of the TV. There is no red connector on this TV so you will have to use an adaptor to connect both left and right (red & white) audio into the white socket. Select AV on the remote control.
