The BX8's take either a TRS or XLR inputs only. from a laptop, you can get a 1/8" stereo to 1/4" l/r mono splitter cable at radio shack that will plug into the back. then just plug up and you will be good to go for about $10.
serously, though, you should save up and buy a studio level firewire or usb card like the presonus inspire and use that to connect. for 200 bucks more spent, you would have much better quality recordings and playbacks that are matched and line level.

BOO-YA!!!

I have a sb wa340 active subwoofer. I have subwoofer and speakers but I don't have DVD how can I use this


So is the DVD part missing? There is a VCR / Aux input on the back but it is for audio only. There are no video inputs so if the DVD is not included in your sub/speaker system, you'll be limited to audio only. First, you'll need to connect a TV to your system using one 'Video Out' cable methods so you can see the menu for the remote control changes on the system. From here there are 2 options:
  1. Connect up a working DVD player directly to your TV using the best option available. Use the audio outputs on your TV to connect to the VCR or TV input on the system box. (Using standard RCA cables.) You may need to enable the external audio outputs on the TV. (Check the setup -> audio menus etc.)
  2. You can use this as an audio amp by connecting a RCA cord from the a DVD R/L audio outputs to the VCR-Aux input on the amp box. You will need to run a separate video feed from the DVD directly to your TV. (Select the desired input on the TV to watch a DVD.)
You'll need to do a lot of switching back and forth with multiple remotes to get everything working, but the speaker setup can be made useful if it still works.

Here is a manual for the system: http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/SCMT1.PDF

I have a Bose lifestyle 50 (from 1999) and just purchased a new Sony Bravia TV. How can I connect the TV to the Bose sound system?


hello!
unless your "Bose" has an optical or coaxial digital stream audio inputs, there is no way of connecting TVs audio output to your receiver(home theater). to by pass the TV itself, connect analog audio output off your cable or set top boxes. those, still have analog audio out. If you need to connect more audio sources, use TV as a video monitor, connect all the audio outs to your "Bose", instead. In case of terrestrial broadcast, you may need to obtain digital converter box and use it simultaneously with TV to get your audio out. Also, if you lack DVR, that box will allow you to use regular DVD recorder. It's not going to be HD quality, but better, than nothing. You can't feed HD video signal out of TV set.Only analog.
good luck,
Alex.

I have bought a Sony BDP-S380 Blu-Ray Disc Player. I have read the scanty instructions for hooking it up to my home entertainment system but still am unclear how to do it, which connection jacks to use...


Without knowing what your Home Entertainment System or TV capabilities are...

Page 10 of the not-so-scanty instructions lists the various video hook-ups to your TV in descending order or quality...

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=BDPS380&LOC=3

Here's how I would do it.

HDMI from the BD to the TV.
Digital audio (standard RCA cable) from the BD to the 'system'.

The best video goes to the TV without hops and extra expensive cable. The best audio goes to the sound system on the cheapest cable which can also be spliced for added length.

I never run either audio or video anywhere it isn't needed or enhanced.

How can I hook up my Bose cinemate on my Philips HD tv when no there is no Audio out and I want to use it for my dvd player, cable box, and video systems?


You don't need to send audio TO a TV. I's a TV, not a source of anything. Many of us use monitors (no TV speakers). The Bose speakers are presumably superior to the TV speakers so whatever the TV is watching (cable/sat/dvd) shuld have its own audio.


Page 11.

If your TV does not have any audio output jacks, you can connect the CineMate™ speaker

system to the audio output jacks of another source, such as a DVD player or cable/satellite

box. However, you will hear sound only from the connected source through your CineMate
speakers.

bi-wiring requires the removal of the copper jumpers between the hi and low speaker terminals. you can use two wire pairs twisted together at amp out connections and the four separate ends at each speaker, but the quality of sound will not be as good as buying quality bi-wire cables. But a pair of quality single set of wires at each speaker would be fine, but put jumpers back on and attach to the top terminals, they are designed that way. bi-wiring does allow the crossover to put out a little better sound. Hooking up four sets of wires to the a and b speaker terminals sounds bad. i have had alot of trouble with my rti10's and learned the hard way that it is best to pay more for wires with quality terminations.

How do I get sound from bose cinemate while watching Bluray with?


You are right I checked the Manual online and there is no Optical in. The other tech was right in suggesting that, Cause it would be the next best thing to HDMI. It only has 1 Analog Audio in, So what I would Recommend is Plugging in all of your Devices to your TV and then 1 Audio cable from your TV to The Bose input. Although this will NOT transfer Digital Audio to Analog Audio. This means if you are going in HDMI then the Audio would most likely NOT transfer to the Bose. In this case you would have to hook up a set of Audio cables (Red and White) From the Blu-Ray to the Bose along with the HDMI. This will leave you with only Audio from the Blu-ray through the Bose. To go a step further you can purchase an Audio Splitter (or Video) then plug your Devices into the Splitter and then 1 cable out to the Bose and just Switch the Input along with the TV. Good Luck!

Connecting bose 321 system to lg hd flat screen,bose receiver plays fm am ok threw speakers.tv will not play threw bose speakers.bose dvd plays sound ,but no picture


You will need a Component Video Cable
Connect the Red Green and Blue Connections from the TV to the Bose.

if your audio is coming from the TV, also connect stereo audio from the TV's audio out to the "TV" input on the bose.

if you want to hook up other devices (VCR, BluRay, etc) the video will go directly to the TV and audio will go directly to the Bose

In order to see the OSD (On Screen Display) setup menus provided by the YSP1000, it has to be connected to a display device!

This is very clear in the manual which I gather you haven't read.
