You need to have an input audio source on your receiver such as a DVD player or ipod. The radio is an internal source that is why yo uare hearing sound from it. One thing you could do is run a cable from the audio out jacks on your television to an input on the receiver, and then when you are watching TV select the input you put the cables in to hear the television sound through your receiver speakers.

I just bought a samsung home theater in a box system, model Ht-D5500. And i also have a hd cable box. i was wondering how can i connect my cable box up so that i get audio from the speakers instead of the...


There are two ways of connecting to get cable TV audio from your Home Theater System.
1) If your HD cable box has a digital audio out ( either optical or coaxial ) you can connect this to the Samsung Home Theater Systems digital input. While watching a TV channel scroll through the Samsungs input ( source ) selector till you hear the sound. Remember to mute the TV sound while you are doing this.Most probably it will be the CBL/SAT input or Video AUX.
2) If your HD box does not have digital audio out you can connect the Red & White audio out of the same to your Samsungs Aux or TV or Video audio inputs . Ignore the yellow socket and connect only the Red and White audio inputs.For getting Video through the TV connect the HD box to TV via HDMI cable or connect the Yellow video out to the TV's Yellow video in. I am sure it is already connected .

To listen to Tv program sound through your home theater system you will have to connect a pair of RCA to RCA cables (Red and White pair ) from the audio out socket of the TV ( some times three sockets Yellow/Red/White labeled Monitor out. Ignore the yellow as it is video out ) to the Aux or CBL/Sat input of the LG system. Then to listen to the sound through your LG HT system switch the Input selector of the LG to Aux or CBL/SAT. Will work for sure.

How can I hook up a panasonic home theater to my brand new LG lcd tv?


Your TV must have an HDMI connector. Please check if your home theater also has an HDMI connector - like this one:

If so, then all you need to do is buy an HDMI cable, and connect one end to your home theater, and the other to your TV. HDMI cables have a digital connection that carries both audio and video, so they are quite convenient. Don't forget to select the HDMI input using your TV's remote control.
Tip: HDMI uses a digital transmission scheme which is fairly robust (unlike analog transmissions), so a $5 HDMI cable will perform just as good as a $50 or $100 HDMI cable. Don't let those store clerks rip you off.
If your home theater does not have an HDMI output, then you must use the analog connections. Look at the back of your home theater and make note of the connectors labeled as 'Output' (both audio and video). You should buy cables with connectors matching those connections.
If you need more clarification on this subject, just ask.

Do you know if the harman/kardon avr125 reciever is 3d capable?thanks ..mrmitchfinance@yahoo.com


Hi,
Actually Home theater sound, is 3D. (Three Dimentional) Your receiver, using surround speakers reproduces 3D sound.
i.e. It is Left to Right, and Front to Rear. Thus it's 3D. If your get a 3D TV, your sound will be just fine because it doesn't come from the set. The sound SOURCE is the DVD player, CD player or Cable Box. If you use digital audio outputs (optical cable or orange colored RCA cables) from these items connected into the Harmon-Kardon, your will get the full Home Theater sound. The Harmon Kardon does not have HDMI inputs however it will not need them for the purposes of sound. Your Receiver is a high quality unit. If you want the thrill of 3D TV, go ahead and get one. After you have set it up, if you then decide you want to go to 7.1 or some other SOUND upgrade, go ahead. One thing you should know, is that there is not a whole lot of audio quality improvement available after 5.1. Unless you have a very large living room. The real quality counts when choosing the speakers and sub woofer that go into the system, not the amount of speakers you have.
I have done a number of high end home theater installations and the experience of hearing the systems (mostly 5.1) has been a thrill for the owner.
I hope this helps you,
Best Regards,
Mark

I have just connected my new Panasonic home theater system to my 50" plasma Panasonic TV with the HDMI cable but I can't have sound from the TV. Need help Tahnks..


To get sound from tv to your system you have to run a set of phono cables from the audio out on the back of the tv to the input on the system,these may be marked "aux".Once you have this done set the sound to prologic2 and enjoy.

hope this helps.

Setting up a Yamaha RX-V690 home theater system


you almost have the exact same situation i am in. i have the same receiver, and going to purchase a panasonic 50" (th50px75u). i think what i will be doing is running a hdmi from my hd cable box to my tv, and installing an audio cable (red/white) from my tv to the receiver. i believe there is an audio input below the hdmi insert. i have polk audio, but theyare about 10 years old, they sound great, but just too large....and may be purchasing a harman kardon system. which models do you have from polk? i have the rt16's, cs350ls center, and fx/500 rears. let me know what you have come up with as well...as it has been a while since you posted this.

cheers,
sean
