1.I would like to hook up my amp to my TV. On my amp I have tape in, tape out, phono and aux. To hear the TV through the amp, how should I hook up rca cables?
2.I have a DVD, how should I hook up the DVD to the amp?(tape in, tape out, phono or aux?)
You can go about this many ways.depending on what you have to work with.are you useing a satilite or cable box?if so assuming they have audio/video out just send the audio to the amp and the video cable to the tv.u could use the aux or the tape in.just put the dvd in the other input aux or tape in.dont matter which.if you dont have a cable box your tv must have some kind of audio out to run to the amp.it can be a rca out or simply a headphone jack.you will need a headphone jack too rca plug cable if you have a headphonejack on your tv.hope i could be of help.

Only you can hear the record player through the aux of your amp if the recordplayer comes with built inphono preamp. If not you need a phono preamp between the record player and amp or an amp which have a phono input. Phono preamp is available in the open market.
Only a Phono (old school turntable) should be plugged into the Phono inputs. It contains a preamp for the tiny signal provided by a Phono cartridge, plus is alters the frequency response drastically to compensate for the RIAA curve applied when they cut the record from tape.
PHONO requires a phono-equipped receiver, which the STR-DE598 appears to NOT be. AUX will not work because it requires Line Level inout. Traditional old-school turntables put out a very tiny drastically-altered signal which needs preamplification to raise it and flatten it out for use by downstream circuitry. THAT is the job of the PHONO section in a preamp or receiver. You need to find a phono preamp or an older receiver to run the TT through. You could slave it to the STR through its AUX then.
If you're certain there is no sound going out of the TT...
Setting the Pre-amp Switch For increased flexibility of use, this turntable has an internal stereo phono pre-amplifier. The Pre-amp Selector Switch is located under the turntable platter, in the rear-center (Fig. 1). If the system amplifier you are using has a PHONO input, set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “OFF” position. If your amplifier does not have a PHONO input, set the Pre-amp Selector Switch to the “ON” position and connect the turntable’s output cables to the AUX or other high-level input on the amplifier (described later).
Turntable operates, but no sound at all
1. The stylus guard is still in place.
2. The tone arm Lift button is pressed in.
3. Amplifier controls set incorrectly: wrong input selected,
tape monitor on, speakers switched off, etc.
4. Check the stylus on phono cartridge for correct placement.
Refer to the instructions for replacing the stylus
on page 5.
Turntable operates, but no sound, or sound not loud
1. If the turntable is connected to an AUX (high-level)
input: The Pre-amp Selector Switch may be set to the
“OFF” position (phono-input level).
2. The input gain of the amplified speaker or similar
device may be too low.
3. The stylus assembly may not be fully seated in the
You could also isolate the problem to either the TT or the PC by trying the TT on some other sound device like a receiver. Make sure the PreAmp Selector switch is ON and plug the TT into any AUX, CD or TAPE input.
IF your amp has a phono input, you need nothing special. If all you have is aux inputs or an extra tape input, you need a phono pre-amp that will increase the signal level to that of a cd player or tape player. These are simple pre-amps that cost around $20.
You need to connect most turntables to a PHONO input or buy a PHONO preamp. Many newer receivers do not have a PHONO input.
The AUX port you are using would work fine for a device like a CD player, but turntables need to be amplified. You can buy an external Phono pre-amp from Radio Shack.
I don't know anything about this site, but something like this device should work for you.
