Umi freeview dvd tv combo to surround sound

Hello, my parents have a umi freeview dvd tv combo and i've just bought them a surround sound for their unit. l have one of my own, but mine runs through my dvd player. When we tried to plug the surround sound into the back of my dads tv, it wouldn't work, so we plugged a separate dvd into the tv via scart and the surround sound came through fine on the dvd. Would this be because the dvd on my dads is built into tv? And is it possible to get a particular type of lead to run straight from the tv to the surround sound? Many thanks

I am not familiar with the manufacture and model of your TV set. This does appear to be a compatibility issue between the TV set and its DVD player, and the surround speaker system. The TV set may not be able to directly send the proper information to the speakers. I would consider to call the manufacture support people to have a definate answer.

Just bought a Logik tv with integrated Freeview. I have sky+ and the TV plays from the Sky receiver but blocks all non freeview channels, for which I subscribe, how do I get the TV to play ALL the sky...


It sounds like you've just got the TV on the Freeview.

I presume your Sky+ is connected via a Scart Lead to an AUX Scart Input on the rear of the TV.

You need to change the TV from Freeview to the AUX Input, should be a button marked AUX.

If you can't figure out how to do it then please advise the Model of the TV and I'll try and talk you through it.

I have a Toshiba DVR19DTKB DVD & VHS Recorder with Freeview , A SKY + Box, A Panasonic NV-SD240BL Video cassette recorder, A Samsung PS42B450B1W 42'' Plasma TV, and would like see a diagram of how all...


connect the aerial to the dvd/vcr/freeview combo, connect a scart from that to the tv, from the scart out socket.
you can then connect the sky from the scart marked tv to either the tv direct or to the combo if it has a second scart.
Note. a scart socket with an arrow going into a box is an input, coming out of the boe is an output and a double arrow is a two way scart.
if you use scart 2 on the tv to connect the combo, the combo will recieve a signal from the tv for recording.

Proscan tv surround sound hook up


This depends on whether you have digital cable box or not. If you have a Digi Cable Box look for the red/white RCA output and connect this via RCA cable to the Red/White Audio input on your surround.

If just Basic Cable look for a red/white audio output on the back of your televison. connect this to the Red/white in on your surround. Could be called tv in or auxillary.

Toshiba 37X3030D LCD TV


no, the tv has a setting that auto changes the screen ratio. you can turn the auto screen ratio off in the settings section. Once you have turned it off put ratio to 16:9 and it will solve the problem.

No sound from daewoo 42" plasma


This particular model doesn't have internal speakers. It has two removable external speakers mounted on the left and right side of the tv. If you didn't get the external speakers with the tv, you won't have sound unless you use a surround sound setup.
