    The surround sound only works when playing a DVD.I want to watch TV programming with the surround sound on.PLEASE HELP!!

  • chrysdw Jan 24, 2009

    I have a Philips tv with only 1 coax port in the back (it's an older tv). We bought a Curtis Home Theater 5.1 (a dvd home theater). We would like to use the surround sound with the tv (cable) not just with the dvd player. Can we/how do we connect the surround sound to work with the cable box and the dvd player? Is it possible to use Curtis Home Theater as a true surround sound system or is our purchase only good for a dvd player?

    want to hook it to the tv to have true surround sound

    TV audio plays really loud through speakers when the dvd power button is off and there's no way to control the volume. Turn it on and the audio returns the the TV speakers. I would really like to just use the speakers for the TV and not just the DVD player. I've checked just about every setting on the tv and dvd player.

Check all of your connections (you've probably done this 1,000 times already) but also check your TV manual. You may need to turn off the TV's speakers by making a menu selection thru the TV. Check the audio selector on the home theater, the one I have (different brand) makes me select the audio source each time I switch from cable, to dvd, to vcr. So when I want to watch a movie, I have to tell the TV to pull the video from the DVD source and the home theater to pull the sound from the DVD.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Can't get the surround sound to play the rear speakers and small front speaker

Sounds like it's just in 2 channel stereo mode, only 2 speakers working out of 5 and a sub, look for a selector switch for switching to 5.1 surround, as far as the no video problem try replacing the cable for the video connection.

Do not know how to wire my sa-w10 speakers together


For surround sound, you need an A/V receiver with 5.1 or 7.1 surround capability. Depending on what kind of receiver you have, the DVD player, satellite/cable box, etc hooks to the receiver, those signals go out to the TV, and the speakers hook to the receiver. The receiver decodes the signal from the cable/satellite box or DVD player and routes it to the appropriate speakers. If the TV program or DVD isn't HD or coded for surround sound, the best you can expect is 2.1 channel stereo sound. OR, you can hook everything (DVD, satellite/cable box) to the TV and run an optical cable from the Digital Output of the TV to the receiver, which is basically the same thing, just a different way to hook everything up. Hope this helps

Need home theater hooked to TV with built in DVD


This is the easiest way 2 explain it. Hook up on the home theater should be labeled in and out. same as on the tv. The TV might no have that feature as the DVD is built in. You might just have an option for sound from the TV/DVD to the home theater. Again OUT from TV IN to receiver. Same with any other device set up.
