This is going to be a bit tricky with this model, since either your Cable or Sat box will need a Digital Audio Out, and you will need to purchase a Digital Audio cable. If your sat box has a digital audio out, connect a digital audio cable from the sat box to the digital audio in on the back of the Samsung. Then connect a red and white AV composite cable from an available audio out on the back of the cable box to the "Aux In 2" on the back of the Samsung - this may only allow stereo sound, however.

Your absolute best bet (and the simplest connection) will depend on whether your TV has a SPDIF OUT or Digital Audio Out (they are roughly the same). If your TV has a Digital Audio out, connect a digital audio cable from the TV to the Digital Audio IN of the Samsung. Now you will get sound from any cable, sat, or any other type of box that is connected to your TV.

I have a Toshiba tv that is connected to Direct tv and I want to know how to connect my new Phillips dvd player to it my tv?


Flat screens normally have 3 different inputs from tv. Regular is tv coax cable, then audio/picture by using special rca cables, then last HDMI. You can use any of those inputs except hdmi because you already are using that input. You may be able to buy a hdmi splitting device that will allow both the tv and the player to input to the single hdmi input. Check Radio Shack or Wal-Mart.

How to connect an Xbox 360 to an RCA RTD205 System?


you can turn every thing into surrond sound. all your visual componants, i.e. x-box, cable, dvd player and so on. connect directly to your tv, right? if so go to your local eltronics store and get youself an optical cable, typically $50.00 or so depends on the length. Go home with that cable connect it to the optical out on your tv and optical in on your reciever, (stereo) and bam all componants are now linked to your surroun sound. Dont forget to post your satisfaction. Be sure you have optical in and out before you go buy this wire. For god sake do not kink this wire either or you will have to buy a new. There is glass inside of optical wires, that transmits the light that the sound travels on.

good day

try looking for loose connections in your speaker cable as well as its connection through its terminals, there might be some loose connection somewhere which causes some grounding on your system. you can also try to reattach your speaker system.

i hope this helps

Problem hooking up my system to the T.V.


check the back of you tv and see if it has the audio out plugs. if it does the you plug the white and red audio cables into the audio (in) on the dvd player and the audio (out) on your tv. then press function on your dvd player until the light on a/v comes on.
