Connecting your surround sound system is not complicated.things you may need:OLDER STEREO SURROUND SOUND:analog red, white, and yellow cable connectorsHDMIaudio fiber opticsif you bought your stuff new from electronics store,then it would be easier.all you need is HDMI cables (mostly)depending where your inputs and outputs go, you must know the rule. OUT-TO-IN. that means if you are using a cable box, dvd, bluray, playstation, or xbox. everything in these electronic devices are OUT. then connect them to the IN ports of your surround sound. at the back of your surround sound there will be connections saying IN-dvd, IN-dvr etc. connect your OUT DEVICES.
NOTE: YOU MUST KNOW WHAT ARE YOUR CONNECTIONS, LIKE DVD-IN OR DVR-IN CU'Z YOU WILL USE YOUR REMOTE TO CHOSE WHICH CONNECTIONS YOU WANT TO USE.
now from your surround sound to your tv.the same ruleout to in of your tv. You should look for HDMI port that is saying OUT. you will connect your HDMI cable from there connecting to your IN of your tv. remember which port you plugged the HDMI cable as you will switch to that particular input. it will say at the back of your tv in-1, in-2, in-3 or as much as the manufacturer want to have in there product.
connecting your speakers.you must remember the color code.if you chose red as positive, all the red wire must be positive.colour may be different but same idea. if you have sub-woofer it will be an analog cable you will only use single cable. At the back of your surround sound there's a connection saying sub-woofer out.
now selecting your inputs.turn on your tv and stereo.newer tvs and stereos are smart they can configure there system which is turned on.
anyways if you will do it manually, you must select from the remote what is the connected input. (input 1, input 2 etc.) if you found the right input, do the players (dvr, cable box, dvd, bluray, playstation, xbox etc) turn them all on and select from your stereo remote control.note all the inputs you selected.

SOURCE: LG 42LC2D Hooking up surround sound

are you going through a cable box ? if so, then just connect the video out cable from the surround system to the video in on the side of the LG. Then connect the left & right audio in cables into the cable box coming out of the sound system, this will work, I just set mine up this way, any other issues let me know.If you are not using a cable box then simple connect out of the sound system the left & right audio out cables AND the video cable into the side of the LG ( the left side is where these in puts are).

SOURCE: hooking up new tv to surround sound

I recently purchased a vizio 37" LCD tv, I have tried everything in hooking up my Sony DVD surround system to the TV. However, I found no audio output on this TV. Could you tell me if there is a way to hook the tv directly up to the surround without an output?
Is there something else I need to buy?

You have to get an optical audio cord.

The optical output on the vizio is right next to the ac cord. Make sure that your audio amp has the same input conection.

SOURCE: proscan tv surround sound hook up

This depends on whether you have digital cable box or not. If you have a Digi Cable Box look for the red/white RCA output and connect this via RCA cable to the Red/White Audio input on your surround.

If just Basic Cable look for a red/white audio output on the back of your televison. connect this to the Red/white in on your surround. Could be called tv in or auxillary.

SOURCE: NO SOUND FROM TV THROUGH THE SOUND SYSTEM SPEAKERS

Hello,
All you need to do is follow the following directions on your TV and you will be on your way listening to your great Philips TV on your great Sony Surround Sound. You do not need to buy any other cords or anything else. Its just a setting on your TV that needs to be adjusted.
By the way, I have a Sony Home Thearte System DAV-HDX275 and I've had it for almost 8 months and its sounds good with my TV and Movies. The speakers are very cheap and it doesn't give you the sound you expect. So I came accross some Boston Accustics CR65's that are not sold anymore but they did run around $700 a peice. I am upgrading the Reciever very soon to a better qualtiy Reciever. This Surround Sound System is great for a starter Surround Sound System.

  1. Press MENU on the remote control and select TV settings >
  2. Press up or down to highlight a sound setting and press right to select the setting.
  3. Press up or down to adjust the setting, and press OK to confirm the change.
  4. Press Menu to exit.
You want to pick Incredible Surround, but if that does not work try them all. The Incredible Surround should do the trick because that switches it from the TV Speakers to the Surround Sound.

Thank you for using Fix Ya!

Don't forget to rate the overall satisfaction of this solution.
Have a Great One!

Hook mz506 surround sound to my Samsung tv


Typically surround sound is run through a receiver or stereo. The sound from the tv is carried to the receiver by cables (hdmi or Audio-Video connected to input area of receiver). Then the speakers are connected to the output area of the receiver.
If you are not using a receiver, then the speakers must be able to connect directly to the tv and you have to see what kind of cabling your tv supports.

Rca model rtd3266 won't produce aux audio through the tv even though we have hooked up the red and white cables. It only playes the surround sound when you watch the dvd.


I believe you have misunderstood something. The audio output from your TV is stereo. Your RCA system produces surround output from your TVs stereo input.

Problem with surround sound on JVC Th-C5 sound system


Not sure how you're hooked up or what model TV you're using. If you mean the TV sound through RCA cables is the source and you're wondering why it's not surround. Well, it's not multichannel. Please fill in some details.

sounds like you need to surround modes. There is usually a Stereo, Dolby, DTS, "virtual surround", 4-speaker mode etc..
When you play a CD or connect to TV it likely defaults to playing stereo or virtual surround.

With real surround, almost all of the voices are coming from the center-channel speaker (normally placed closest to the TV).

Also, check to make sure the center channel is connected properly.

No sound


I had the same problem on 3/21/09...I found it was the PS3 settings. I had to go into the visual settings (not sound) and change the linear sound to optic digital...but I also had to purchase a digital optical cable...plug everything into your tv instead of the receiver and then hook up the digital optical cable from your tv to the receiver. A it will work and b it is a better sound quality than that of the HDMI cable.

Tv surround


It depends on what you currently have as equipment.

You'll have to have something that outputs in digital audio (coaxial or optical). Either your reciever (Cable/Satellite) or the TV. You'll just hook that up to the Surround Sound unit and then just turn on the Surround System when you want surround sound.

You'll have to connect the TV as you would normally with audio cables sicne you'll want stereo sound on the regualr channels.

Surround sound hook up


if you are trying to hook up your stereo to your tv here is how it goes you go out and buy an audio video cable which are just four ports two on one end and two on another you have your stereo system on aux which means other for either movies,games,etc. and then if your tv has a audio video input you put two into the tv one for the audio and the other for the video hopefully your tvs or movies,etc should be coming out from your stereo rather than your tv
