You have to have the audio cables coming out of your equipment and going into your receiver. the cable box and dvd or other components you have. The audio cables must plug into the out of your components and to the in of your receiver. If you are just plugging it in from the tv it must be plugged into the audio out of the tv.

Trying to connect a sony home theatre system so that the akai television plays through the home teatre speakers. I used an hdmi cable, but the tv still only plays threough the tv.


The HDMI jacks on the TV are HDMI in. Thus to get the theater system to play the sound, you use the HDMI out from your set top box to the HDMI in of the Sony theater system and then the HDMI out of the theater system to the TV. (Connecting the HDMI in of the TV to the HDMI in of the home theater system will not work.)

If you are watching OTA TV or a direct coax cable connection, you need to hook up the TV audio out to the home theater system audio in to use these speakers with the TV. Then you probably need to set the TV to use the external speakers. This will probably be in the Menu under Audio. (Toggle external speakers on/off)

The Akai LCT2785TA has RCA audio out (1/4" red and white jacks). If your home theater system has RCA audio in, just get a patch cable (MM ends on each side of the cable). If your home theater system only has digital audio inputs, you will need a converter. http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/audio-converters-extenders/analog-to-digital-digital-to-analog/1t-ap-216/prod1TAP216.html is a link to one appropriate converter.

I hope this helps.

I have a new samsung 40" led tv and i have


The specs say that it has an optical audio in on your home theater system. So the easiest way to hook up is to connect the optical audio out of your tv to the optical audio in of your home theater system and walla! What ever play on the tv will play on the home-theater system. You are looking for a Toslink optical audio cable

Lg plasma 50 trying to configure hdmi to play tv sound through panasonic home theater.


You will only be able to use the HDMI if you tv has an output for it(for other things beside built in DVD player of home theatre). It can not be an input. If you want everything that plays through your tv to then play through your home theatre the easiest way is to use white and red composite audio cables(some call them rca cables) More than likely you tv will have this output.They will go from the output of the tv to the input of home theater. If your home theater has a Blu-ray or DVD player you need to use the HDMI from home theatre out to in on the tv. If you tv happens to have and OUTPUT for fiber optic audio or digital coaxle audio on your tv and your home theatre has same but as inputs that will work as well with a better quality sound. However this is very rare.

If you mean you are not getting sound from the tv through the theater system, then the problem may be that you need to connect an audio lead from the tv's audio out to the theaters audio in (aux in) and select the au or av as source.

The only audio out jack on your TV is for the headphone on the left side of the TV. You need to purchase a 3.5 mm to RCA audio cable, connect the 3.5mm jack to the left side of your TV and the 2 RCA audio cable ends to the audio in of your Home Theater and then select AUX 1 or AUX 2 on the home theater depending on which jacks you plugged into.
