Connecting TV with FM Stereo Receiver, DVD Player and headphones

I am having trouble finding the correct hook up of cables connecting a TV with a FM/AM stereo receiver, head phones and a DVD player.
A simple diagram would be very helpful.

    Are you trying to have the sound from your TV and your DVD go through your stereo so you can hear through speakers and headphones?

    All TVs and stereos are different. But generally you want to use "line in" and "line out" connections. (the connectors are usually in red and white pairs) The TV may be the difficult element because not all TVs have "line outs".


    If you are only concerned with amplifying sound from DVDs, I can help you. All you need is a stereo RCA cable (in pairs, red and white) that is long enough to reach from your DVD player to the back of your stereo. They look similar to this: http://tinyurl.com/7m8wp2
    Connect the "line out" from your DVD player to a "line in" on the stereo with that RCA cable pair making sure to connect white to white and red to red. Depending on tour stereo, it might be "aux in" or "tape in". (do not use "phono in"). Then make sure the input select on the front is set to "aux" or "line" or "tape" (depending on which input you used) and make sure the stereo is on when you watch DVDs. You can also plug in your headphones to the stereo.

    If you want regular TV sound to go through the stereo I cannot answer your question without knowing what kind of inputs and outputs are on your TV. Look on the back and make a list of all the connectors as they are labeled.

when you say nothing do you mean the tv wont come on? If the tv is on can you see the words (input, volume bar, menus, etc.) do you hear audio? does the player work on another tv, since you have a sylvania tv, are you using the game button on the top of the remote to switch to the jacks on the front? Good luck :0)

SOURCE: VCR, DVD, TV Connection

first let me say that a dvd player and a dvd recorder are different. the dvd player can only play dvd while a dvd recorder can both play and record dvd that is said. what i understand from what you write is currently is - out of your tv box into your dvd player then out of your player into your tv........ ok some dvd has two connections. line one and line two if your tv box is in line one then you should plug the rca cable in line two in. then you select line two on the dvd player then plug the other end to your vcr in line out so that is out of your vcr into line two of your dvd player.(some times one of the connection is at the front of your player hidden) if your dvd player only have one connection then you would have to plug out your tv box and replace it with the vcr cable and when you finish coping your vhs tape you plug in back your tv box to your dvd player. hope i could help..........

Try radio shack, or stereo sales/installation place for ready to go plug adapter. For a few bucks, it saves headaches, and butchering the wiring in case you want to re-install old one later when trading in or selling the car.

Hi,
I went thru user manual..there is no special way of wiring speakers..
pls check carefully the speaker connections again and the "speaker selector" too..
what about "MUTE" button ? it should be "OFF" ...
and try to test it on FM radio first ..

Trying to hook a dvd player up how do i do that


There are three ways subject to what your DVD player and receiver can support.
1. Connect the stereo output of the player using a pair of analogue interconnects. The outputs are usually color coded red and white (for left and right). Simply plug in the interconnect and connect the other ends to a matching pair of inputs on the Receiver. Then make sure you select the correct input on the Receiver for the sound to come through.
2. The second method is to take advantage of surround sound audio (Dolby 5.1 for example) on the DVD. You will of course need a surround sound speaker system connected to your Receiver to take advantage of this. You'll need 'either' an Optical or Coaxial cable. These are both single cables that carry the digital audio form the player to the Receiver. Check your manual to see which ones your equipment has. Alternatively look on the back of the DVD player, the digital output is usually marked quite clearly. Obtain a suitable cable, and plug into the DVD player and the other end into the Receiver. Again make sure select the correct input on the Receiver. You 'may' need to go in to the menu settings of the DVD player in order to tell it to output the digital signal.
3. HDMI - If you DVD player, Receiver AND TV all have HDMI connections then this is by far the easiest. You'll need 2 HDMI cables. The first one goes from the DVD player into the Receiver, the second goes from the Receiver to the TV. Again make sure you select the correct HDMI input on the Receiver and the correct HDMI input on the TV and that should get you going!
Hope this helps?

NEED INSTRUCTIONS FOR HOOKING UP WIRELESS HEADPHONES FOR VIZIO TV


From the manual:

1. Plug the stereo audio cable into the headphone jack of your audio
source (e.g., stereo, TV, CD player, DVD, etc.). If your audio source
has two RCA output jacks instead of a headphone jack, use the
supplied Y cable to connect your headphones to the two (red and
white) RCA jacks.
2. Connect the other end of the stereo audio cable to the AUDIO IN
socket at the back of the recharging cradle/transmitter.
3. Connect the AC/DC main power adapter to the DC IN power
supply socket at the back of the recharging cradle/transmitter. Then,
connect the adapter to an electrical outlet.
Important: This power unit is intended to be correctly oriented in a
vertical or floor mount position.

I cannot get any sound to the speakers, hooked up receiver to new HD tv and not what input source or settings to use??


Hi, it's a general process to connect any receiver to a HD TV.

How to Hook Up a Receiver to an HDTV

Things You'll Need:

* HD television
* HD satellite or cable receiver
* DVD player
* Stereo receiver
* AV cables
* Cable connector
* HDMI cables

Though it utilizes the most sophisticated technology on the plant, an HDTV is extremely easy to hook up to a receiver. Home entertainment systems are designed for compatibility, whether it is a cable or satellite receiver, a DVD player or a stereo sound system.

Instructions


Examine the back of your HDTV. You will see a series of input jacks for AV cables, (typically color-coded white and red for audio and yellow for video), as well as an antenna input and one or more HDMI input jacks. There will likely be a number of them, but each one should be distinguished with a label ("video," "cable" or something similar).


Attach the cable connector from the cable or satellite receiver to the antenna input on the back of the TV.


Connect the AV cables to the DVD player, VCR, stereo receiver or whichever other component you wish to connect to the television. The cables should line up by color: place the white cable in the white input jack, the red cable in the red input jack and the yellow cable in the yellow input jack. All three cables from each component need to go into the same label input jacks. Usually, they will all line up in a vertical row.


Find the HDMI output jack on your receiver or DVD player (some receivers will not have them--they are necessary to receive a high definition signal--but can still play on the TV through the cable connector or AV cables). Attach one end of an HDMI cable to the output jack of the receiver and the other end into the input jack on the HDTV.


Turn on the TV. Access the menu with your remote, and follow any instructions it gives you. Your HDTV may require a few additional steps to complete the hookup of the receiver (though not all of them will).


Access the "input" button on your TV remote. This will allow you to switch the TV signal to one of the cable connections you have just made. For example, if you attached the HDMI cable to the first of two HDMI input jacks, the TV will flash "HDMI 1" on the screen to tell you that is where it is receiving its signal.


Tips & Warnings


Not everything that can be hooked up to an HDTV is capable of playing in high definition. The signal needs to be HD as well, which means that only HD broadcasts, HD DVDs and Blu-Ray DVDs can play in full high definition (though "upgrade" DVD players will allow normal DVDs to play at an enhanced picture). You can still hook receivers up to an HDTV, and it will still play broadcasts from them as clearly as the signal permits.

Hope it helps.

Good luck..

How to I use the stock radio amp to run an ipod?


Hi,
You can use any of the following methods
  1. Connecting the iPod via headphone jack
    All you need is a simple Y cable, which is available from any home-electronics store. Connect the small plug to the headphone output of your iPod--or any portable audio player. Then connect the red and white RCA-style plugs to the matching inputs on the back of your stereo receiver or boombox.

  2. Connecting the iPod via iPod dock
    To connect using the iPod dock, you first need to purchase an iPod dock accessory. Using the same type of Y cable, connect the small plug to the matching jack on the rear of the iPod dock. Then, plug the red and white RCA-style plugs to the matching inputs on the back of your stereo receiver or boombox. This method provides a line-level connection that maintains a volume level to your stereo system and allows the iPod to recharge.

  3. Connecting the iPod via wireless FM transmitter
    You can also connect your iPod to your stereo wirelessly. You'll need to purchase a compatible wireless FM transmitter--there are several available--and connect it your iPod. Once your transmitter is connected, simply tune any nearby radio to the correct frequency, and you'll be listening to your own iPod-powered mini radio station.

Connecting new tv to DRA-685


you can use the headphone jack just get an adaptor to change from the headphone type to RCA type. adjust the volume of the tv to 3/4 of the way to give line level to the stereo, use an aux input on the stereo. if you had a suround sound dolby digital / DTS receiver then use the digital coax out to that type of receiver, but since you have an anolog 2 channel receiver you must use the only anolog source (the headphone).
