you need to have 3 pair of audio-in ports for that.
i think your sound system has 3 input ports.
1.tv in ->u can connect this to audio out of your tv
2: vcr in ->u can connect this to audio out port of vcr
3: aux in -> this can be connected to your TV Receiver
then you can use the soundsystem remote to switch between the source to listen one at a time.
pls come back if u have any thing more
You can't connect the speakers to your TV. I doesn't have any audio output available, just inputs. Those are for connecting the audio from sources like DVD players, and they go in to the TV's sound system. But there's no way of getting the sound out except through the set's internal speakers. The surround system you got is great for a computer, but it's not what you need for TV use.
The only solution I can offer is the suggestion that you invest in a home theater receiver. You can get decent basic systems with the receiver (often with DVD/audio CD playback capability built in) and surround speakers at reasonable prices. Then you use that to drive the speakers, and use the TV just as a video monitor. Then you will have surround sound.
If you are using a "cable box" or "sat receiver" the audio will go from the cable/sat to the surround system with either optical, digital coaxial or analog RCA to the TV input on your surround system. If it does not have an input specifically labeled "TV" you can use vid 1 vid 2 etc. just make sure that when you wish to listen to the tv on surround that the surround system is on the correct input.
If you are using just an "off-air" antenna, your cables would go from the TV "monitor out" which will be either optical or analog RCA to the surround system and the appropriate input. Hope this isn't too confusing, if you need more help, post a comment and I will help some more. Hope this does the trick
You need to connect your TV to the AUX connection in the back of your HT system. Then set your HT system on AUX 1 and wait about 5 seconds for the TV sound to come through. If it does not work on AUX 1, you may have to try on AUX 2 or AUX 3 settings on your HT system. Make sure the A/V cable you use is good and in working order and is a good quality cable.
Hope that helps, Gary
This seems to be a problem that has to do with your HDMI audio output. First check in your TV setting if audio out is selected on your correct HDMI port. Than check if your receiver is able to receive audio via HDMI (i assume you used the HDMI connection). Some receivers have HDMI IN connections but are not able to receive audio on it, the latest receivers/sets do have this feature. If your receiver doesnot support audio IN via HDMI you can only do one thing, connect the stereo audio-out of your TV to an AUX IN connection on your receiver.
I just finished setting up my system last night and was facing similar problems with sound/video from my PS3. The only option I could get working was to have the HDMI cable connected from the PS3 to the TV and then connect the Optical cable to the receiver for sound. I was under the impression that HDMI handles sound and video but for whatever reason the PS3 does not agree.
I have DTS sound and fantastic picture now through my PS3, hope this helps.
