Same problem here with HTS3357/12... This system is also REALLY **** from an electronics point of view (I have checked inside and I know what I am talking about), that's the reason why the sound is so horrible on the front and rear speaker.It is as simple as a SCAM.
No more Philips for me.

Sure you can, Joel.
Put the speakers wherever they will go, and cut the wire from the speaker to whatever length you need to reach your wall terminals. Leave some slack so you can move the speakers if needed. Strip off whatever length of insulation you need to make the terminal connection. Note that the speaker wire will have some kind of polarity marking. There will be a colored stripe or other mark on the insulation, or the conductors themselves may be different colors (usually one wire is copper, and the other tinned so it's silver colored). It doesn't matter which you use for positive as long as you're consistent and use the same one for each speaker.
At the other end where the prewiring comes out for your home-theater system, splice the connector ends you cut off onto the installed wires, following the same polarity. I recommend using an appropriate size insulated **** splice to make the connection. The crimper and splices can be found at auto parts stores, Radio Shack or most hardware stores. It's quick, reliable and makes sure there are no bare wires to short out.
Plug the speakers into the system and you should be good to go. Whip up some popcorn and enjoy the show!

Go down to your local RadioShack or any place that sells wire of any sorts (heck, even Walmart might carry it now) and ask them for speaker wire. I'm not sure what the impedance of this particular model is, but you should be able to find it printed on the back of the speakers, or in your user's manual. This guide will help you to identify what size speaker wires you need, that way when you go in looking for speaker wire, you'll at least sound like you know what you're doing.

Lots of people are doing this and part depends on what your home theatre has to offer in the way of connections.
For sound most use the LINE OUT on a computer or laptop and connect that to a suitable input on the receiver using a 3.5mm to stereo phono lead.
If you are lucky enough to have an OPTICAL sound out on your computer and one on the home system that would be a better option.
For the video side again it depends on what your computer has to offer
If it has DVI and your TV or home system has DMI then that is the very best option. remember to lower the resolution on the computer first and to check and of your graphics card options for dual display. A DVI to HDMI lead is needed for that
Nvidia graphics cards seem to work best in this area.
If you have a VGA connector on your TV that is another great option and you would only need a VGA lead.
Some cards and laptops have S-VIDEO out. Lots of TV's and home systems have these and the display is quite reasonable. If using S-video connections use a GOOD quality cable.
Some people can only obtain a black and white picture so check your graphics card did not come with any special adaptor.
Another method is composite video Even that is not always 100%
Some laptops need a special S-video adaptor which is just a short little cable to properly enable the S-video and convert S-video to composite. That is probably the worst way to do it.
Using a VGA to component lead is also an option but results vary wildly from no picture to quite good. A lot depends on the quality of the lead once again.
I use the optical sound and DMI lead to power a 50" Sony with great sound and picture.
