For surround sound, you need an A/V receiver with 5.1 or 7.1 surround capability. Depending on what kind of receiver you have, the DVD player, satellite/cable box, etc hooks to the receiver, those signals go out to the TV, and the speakers hook to the receiver. The receiver decodes the signal from the cable/satellite box or DVD player and routes it to the appropriate speakers. If the TV program or DVD isn't HD or coded for surround sound, the best you can expect is 2.1 channel stereo sound. OR, you can hook everything (DVD, satellite/cable box) to the TV and run an optical cable from the Digital Output of the TV to the receiver, which is basically the same thing, just a different way to hook everything up. Hope this helps
I can't find a match for the model. What brand is it?
Generally, any modern all-in-one will interface with any modern TV. It all depends on the connections matching up. Keep in mind that the system is for the audio and source origination while the TV is there to add a visual, not audible, aspect to your enjoyment. If there is something the TV can display it probably originates from somewhere that could connect directly to the audio system, so let the specialized audio equipment handle the audio while the TV handles the video.
The TV probably has HDMI, component and/or composite video connections. Use whatever Video output matches on your all-in-one, in that order of preference and decreasing video quality.
For TV-based listening (that usually means 'cable), use the audio output of the cable box primarily in the following order of preference: HDMI, optical or coaxial digital, analog (RCA). Without brand/model specifics, I can't guess what that would entail.
The VCR is straight analog/composite and if you are trying to get it to show up on the TV via the HDMI connection between the receiver and the TV it is probably not going to work correctly until you add a dedicated pair of audio connection from the receiver to the TV...
You'd be better off hooking the speakers to the RECEIVER'S speaker outputs, THEN hooking your TV audio output to an unused receiver input, such as AUX. The signals from your receiver cannot reach the TV; thus your CD player and radio will not play through the speakers if the speakers are hooked to the TV. All receiver INPUTS are designed to accept the same signal level; thus, you can use any input for your TV audio, such as Aux, DVD, CD, etc. Just remember which input you're using for the TV audio, and everything should work fine. Almost all receivers have an AUX input; hopefully yours also has a dedicated CD input to avoid confusion. The you simply select the AUX input to hear your TV through the speakers.
It depends on the TV audio output connections. Most TVs have low level audio outputs (RCA Jacks) that require a amp but some do have external speaker connections. You will have to refer to your manual or check the back of the set.
The speakers will not sound right. You dont have two tape monitors on this receiver? You can simply use the tape otput to the EQ input, and then the Tape monitor input to the EQ output leads. Good Luck
