Trying to get surround sound speakers to work with TV

We have a 37 inch LCD37-207 Television and we have bought HCHKAW08 5.1CH Surround sound system, both Technika brand. We can get the Sub-woofer to work but not the other 5 speakers, we just get a hissing sound out of them.
Is this a problem with the speakers or is it that the 2 are not compatible.

Thank you
Glenys

They come with 3 x 3.5mm stereo to 2 x RCA phono cables, so are obviously meant for plugging in to the back of a PC with 6ch output.

BTW - they're ****.

I should've known for £29....

Shouldn't be an issue of compatiblity.  Check to make sure all wires are connected properly and make sure the settings on the TV are set to external sound or surround sound 5.1.  I hope this was helpful.  Lot's of luck.

Will a panasonic tv work with a yamaha surround sound system


Yes, any TV will work with any surround system. It all depends on how you wish to connect them together. That all depends on what kind of inputs/outputs you have on both the TV and the amplifier. Too difficult to advise without being there and having the operating manuals for both the TV and 5.1 system.

The broadcaster of the TV station has to tell you they are transmitting surround sound - sometimes they are just transmitting stereo. Also, the media as in CD's and DVD movies must have surround sound embedded or recorded on it to allow surround sound.

I have a 32 inch LG4000 with built in DVD. Poor Audio


Luke,
You are not asking too much and I believe that you can solve this problem in a menu option on your TV. Most systems designed to work with surround sound and/or by itself have some audio options that are designed to simulate or work in concert with surround sound. Start by looking around your TV menu options for something labeled digital audio compression or something like it. Sometimes there will also be a function in a menu to "simulate" surround sound attributes. Try to change these to factory or default settings, and if that still sounds the same try changing the settings around until you hear more accurate audio.

How can i get the surround sound to work.


You need to get an HDMI cable going from your Cable Box to the Surround Sound system. If you are low on HDMI ports, you can RGB cables for Video.

Your quote: " I have a HDMI cable plugged into the TV and the Cable box." move that cable to Surround Sound and Cable Box, and use RGB cable or HDMI to go from Cable box to TV!

If your Surround Sound has no HDMI, use a Fibre Optic to go Cable to Surround. It will work Great!

Good Luck!

Monster Cable RCA Cables are generally the best, they produce great sound while at the same time reducing the low frequency dirty power noise..

Surround Sound


That's normal Carol. Television shows don't use the rear speakers very much.

No sound when using dish or regular tv


This may be old news but just in case ...

Typically you need to consider the surround system as the central point for sound distribution (and in newer receivers, the distribution point for video signal as well). So you need to think of your TV and Satellite as sound sources and connect them to the IN side of your surround sound system. From the back of your TV then, look for the Audio OUT (commonly Red for right and White (or black) for Left. Connect these to the IN on the back of the surround system. Likewise for your satellite box. Then make sure you select the appropriate source on the surround system. If the system supports the video signal, you can route that as well. Beware that you'll need some sort of simulation (provided by the Phillips unit) to upconvert stereo to surround ... check the manual online. If you post model numbers for the Phillips and satellite units, we might be able to direct you more specifically (provided we can find manuals online)
