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.

Hook up to tv


hello there. name is ryan lets see if this helps.
typically in a combination unit there is no rca audio ouputs on the tv. reason being is it is a combo unit not meant to be a item within a home theater system. it has the whole home theater built in it. ;) however if there is any audio output jacks on the tv you should be able to wire the surround sound unit up via rca cable output from tv to input on reciever for surround sound

Only works when playing a DVD.


This is an easy and quick fix.

What you will need:

RCA cables (audio)
( possibly Line out converter )

Your television is either going to need Video Out, or if you have a VCR or VCR/DVD combo connected to your television. Assuming that you have a VCR combo, the way your tv should be set up is on the back of the vcr combo, your cable will run into the coaxial IN and then you have another cable running from Coaxial OUT to your tv. If you have it set up like this, then the DVD / VCR combo will have RCA Audio / video out ports on the back side. Run RCA cables from the DVD / VCR output to the surround sound INPUT. If you already have your inputs in use on the surround sound, Radioshack has RCA splitters for about $1.50 each, you might need to pick some of them up so you dont have to go through the trouble of reaching behind it all the time to disconnect and reconnect whatever your trying to connect. Now if you dont have the DVD / VCR combo, then your TV "MUST" have RCA Outputs. if it doesnt, then the only way that your going to have your surround sound connected to your tv is to take the TV apart and get a RCA "Line output converter" and wire it to the left / right channels of your tv. From what I've read, i think this is what your trying to do so I hope this helps

Getting playstation 3 sound coming out of dvd surround


This wont be very helpful, but, it is worth noting that although you may think you bought a "Wharfdale" product, i'm afraid you haven't. Chan bros. bought the rights to the name some time ago and so what you have is a cheap non-descript chinese import. sorry.
