You don't mention the models so generic advice is all I can give.
The red/white/yellow on the HTS are for Right/Left/Composite Video, respectively.
The red/white on the TV are for Right/Left audio. You don't mention if they're IN or Out. If they're Out jusy jack them into the Red/White on the HTS.
As TV's are not reputed to be great audio sources, you would get better audio if you sourced TV-relaed audio from wherever the TV is getting it, like the DVD, Cable Box, Blu Ray. If your HTS accepts digital audio in, all the better as THAT is the only way you'll get multichannel audio from an external source.
Just to clarify, When you say sound out with the tv, which are you referring to: 1. DVD built into to the theatre 2. Pay TV 3. Analogue TV ( or digital TV with inbuilt set top box) 4.Digital TV with a separate set top box Please indicate which one.
TV: ther should be several set of three RCA Sockets on the back of the tv. Look for the red, whit and yellow Phono sockets. do you have these colours and are any of them labelled TV Out or output?
Philips System: Look for an analogue in, Aux IN, or any other unused RCA (Phono) Sockets ( They MUST be red or white!) Take a set of red and white RCA leads plug them into the OUT set on the TV, and The "INput" set on the Home theatre, select that input on the theatre and your off and racing! Please clarify first though!
Do you have a High Def cable box and Tv? if so you would use and HDMI cable from your cable box to your tv, then run an optical audio or coax audio from your cable box to your surrond system. Depends on which plug you have on both for the audio portion.If you dont have HD tv than you would run cable wire from cable box to tv then run red and white audio from cable box to surround system, to listen to it you would select aux channel.
your tv might have aux out on the back, I would use that first.
IF NOT, then you will need to use the cable box.Insert the red and white plugs at the other end of
this cable into the AUDIO IN TV or cable box connectors on the
Be sure to match red to red and white to white. 3.Use your TV remote control to turn the TV speakers
down to minimum volume.
This prevents the echo effect of audio playing
through both the TV speakers and your 3•2•1®
This is very easy. The Red and Black(Sometimes white) are for your Audio Usually Left and Right respectively. Yellow is for Video let me know if that helps. there are some instances where if you plan to hook it up to a Television, specially the older ones, you'll find that you just have two inputs for only two cables so what do you do then. Well... Just hook up the yellow for the Video Par and Either the black or Red leaving one unused. Let me know how that works out for you alright. And feel free to ask more questions where we will be more than happy to assist you.
The green, black and beige cable is non-standard and proprietary meaning that Coby has defined their purpose which hopefully is described in your user guide.
It would be worth a few dollars to buy the properly color-coded cables to uncomplicate your setup.
Buy cables (or cable sets) that have the same color coding as your TV jacks along with the cable suggested below.
There are several ways to connect to an HDTV system and these are normally standard as previously described.
The red and white are for right and left channels and it isn't uncommon to see a three cnductor cable with one not connected since one of the methods of connection is to supply audio via two cables, video (composite) via a 3rd which is plugged into a corresponding jack, normally colored yellow.
Audio cables aren't really required to carry the mix of much higher frequencies of composite video.
If you have the following connectors, try this:
- S-Video (this does not contain any audio information and requires an S-Video cable)
- Right (red) and left (white) audio paths.
The S-Video connection provides a better signal that gives you a noticeably sharper picture.
This setup is selected from the TV's input source menu.
i have just bought a DURABRAND SA51AR home theatre system, to go with my DURABRAND 2127N tv. and DURABRAND CG5660-M freeview set top box. i have connected all my output leads obviously the speaker ones. but my input i have only one red yellow white jack on my tv and three sets of red and white jack leads with home theatre system. cant get no sound no matter how many times iv swapped the input leads ... any idea s whats going wrong :oS :(
Based on your description, your Television has stereo outputs. Multiple channels may be "encoded" into those outputs, but your home theater system would need to interpret these encoded channels through one of its pairs of inputs.
I would try plugging the 5A51AR's Right/Left (Red/White) "Side Speaker" inputs into the TV's stereo outputs and see if the unit provides output to all speakers. There may be a switch on the unit labeled "Surround-Decode" or similar which needs to be set for this type of operation.
