RCA HTS-5000 missing remote and manual- cannot change settings

The setting that's on now is for a widescreen TV. My TV is not that type. I cannot find the settings button on the receiver to change this back. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

According to the manual, you cannot change your settings without the remote. You might see if you can purchase a remote on line or at radio shack, since they originally sold that model some years back.

I would like to hook up my philips hts3544 to my hdtv. i have a satelite receiver in between . i cant always get the hts to provide volume for my tv . can you advise me how to


Manuals answer most of those types of questions.

SAT IN BETWEEN THEM? WHY?? HOW? Treat the SAT as an A/V audio source.

Provide "volume" for the TV?? What's that mean? No sound or no control of it?

Most TV's have multiple Video inputs. The SAT should go STRAIGHT to it. The digital audio, if available on a coaxial digital output, SHOULD be run to the HTS's coax digital input.

The TV speakers will never be under control of the HTS. TheTV volume would handle that end. What's the point? Are the TV speakers BETTER?
The HDMI cable CAN carry the audio to it. As the manual says,

"Make sure that the audio output setting is not turned off. See 'Setup Menu Options - { Audio Setup Page -
HDMI Audio }' for details."

Go to http://www.p4c.philips.com/files/h/ and drill down to the HTS3544/37 directory for the manual. The alpha directories are slow loading. Be patient.

WE HAVE A RCA HTS 5000 THAT WE CAN NOT FIGURE OUT HOW TO ADJUST SO THE VOLUME IS NOT ALWAYS SO LOUD BUT THAT CHANGES WHEN THE MOVIE OR SOUND CHANGES


Need more info. Are you using the volume control on the unit as your main control or the volume on the TV? I have a setup in which my sound is routed through a 5.1 Teac amp. The sound level on the amp os set and not changed. The volume control on the TV dictates the amount of sound. If the amp volume is set too high, then this will be amplified even more through the TV's sound input (the red and wite RCA cables).

If this is the case, turn down one of the folumes (the one that remains unchanged) and see what happens.

HOW CAN I HOOK UP HOME THEARTER SYSTEM TO MY TV


Assuming (since you don't identify them) your RCA has at least one available analog stereo input and your TV has a analog stero-only output, just connect them with RCA cables, set the TV's output volume (if it has menu item for it) to FIXED so theTV volume doesn't affect the output, select the input on the HTS and you're good to go.

Another way might be to take the TV-related audio from the cable box straight to the HTS in whatever manner is the best quality. Digital would make mulitchannel audio possible.

Or name the devices involved, find the manuals and read up on your applicable options.
The video out side of a receiver only REQUIRES a simple video out connection so you can see the On Screen Display for managing it. Most manuals (which you DO have, right?) also recommend running all or some video sources through the receiver to the TV but I don't bother conencting video to my audio electronics or audio to my video electronics as it wastes cables, adds connections which could fail and adds virtually nothing to either medium.

Need a manual or relevant information


Yes.
It is possible as long as your HTS unit has an AUX in or AUDIO in port and your TV has an audio out connection. You can connect audio cables (be it red & white, optical or coaxial audio cables) so that the audio signal from your TV will pass through the HTS unit. All that's left for you to do is to set the HTS unit to the proper mode (eg. AUX)

Hope this helps!

Remote stops working


Both remotes are operating on the same frequency - usually you would think that having two products of same manufacturer would be a good idea, but in this case, the remotes interfere with each other.

Please help me!!


There are a few possibilities.
1)You can connect a red and white AV cable (or the red and white portion of a red, white and yellow cable) from the TV Audio OUTPUT to the "Audio In/TV" portion of the HTS (NOTE: Many TV's do not have an Audio OUTPUT).

2)You can connect a red and white AV cable (or the red and white portion of a red, white and yellow cable) from the Audio OUTPUT of your cable or satellite box to the "Audio In/TV" portion of the HTS.

Note: Using a red and white cable may not give you sound on all 5 speakers.

3)Get a digital audio or SPDIF cable and run it from the TV, Cable or Satellite Box's Digital Audio OUT to the "DIGITAL IN" of the HTS. This will give you the best sound quality. When using this (or any of the other) type of connection, press SURR until you get sound from all 5 speakers.

Also, the manual can be obtained from www.usasupport.philips.com

Hooking up home theater


Run a regular RCA type audio cable from your TV audio out to your Home Theatre audio in. That is what I have done recently with my Samsung LCD and Home Theater. You then have to put your Home Theater on Aux 1 or Aux 2 to get the sound from TV. Ensure your TV's volume is off.
