Hello,

You will be needing a RCA Digital TV box converter or Digital RCA TV box converter. This converter will be the link between the Sound bar system and TV.

You should find this converter in any electronics accessories store within you vicinity or check walmart store close to you or order it online from walmart (But I don't recommend ordering online because of it's problem sometimes).

Check the back of the converter, it should have an input for Digital and RCA output and vise-a-vise.

Take a look at this Walmart link; http://www.walmart.com/ip/RCA-Digital-TV-Converter-Box-DTA800/8343230

I hope you understand the above.

Good luck.

If the sound bar has the red and white cable then yes you can use those. Make sure in your settings for the TV you have it set for an external audio source. Since you don't want to use the built in speakers. Probably best to get a tuner if using multiple speakers and a sub.

Why can't I get picture or sound when my Sound Bar, TV and Blu-ray player are connected?


You have to run an audio cable from the TV to the sounder and put the sounder on the TV input for sound to work. The first choice audio cable for best sound would be optical cable if your tv has optical output on it. If it does then you would put the sounder on the din input for sound when watching antenna or any hdmi source connected directly to tv. If your TV only as analog rca out or mini audio out then put sounder on aux input. I think your sounder came with mini to mini stereo cable. If your TV doesn't have mini audio out the get a optical cable or you can find a mini to rca red/white will work. Optical is your BEST connection and soundbar would stay on din all the time for best sound.

How to connect my tv to optical outlet


What audio-outputs does your TV have? SPDIF? 3.5 millimeter stereo-jack? White/Red RCA "post-and-collar" sockets?

What inputs does the sound bar have? (Same choices as above.)

Note that you might need a 3.5mm to stereo-RCA cable.

Just purchased a Goodman 50 w sound bar connected to AUX on tv and sound bar clicked AUX on remote white light shows no sound just a loud buzz


To the best of my understanding an Aux port is usually an input port. So you might be sticking the sound bar terminals into the wrong connector in TV. The audio signal from the TV is meant to go into the Aux In port of the sound bar. Usually this will mean a pair of RCA cables (white and red) from TV out to Aux In. If you have done the right things then maybe check if soundbar is not in mute. Try some other source as well. Like connecting an iPhone or ipod stereo out to the Line In port in soundbar and selecting LineIn mode.
see page 7 in the soundbar manual. It is hard to know what TV connection you are using. Is it selected on the TV settings? http://www.goodmans.co.uk/support/downloads/user-guides/GDSB02BT20-ib.pdf

I would like to plug in the sound of my television set to the panasonic SC-PM08. I tryed to do that by plugging in the tulip plugs in the "aux" connections, but no sound comes out. what could be the...


You mention "tulip plugs"! are you referring to your RCA jacks in the back of your unit? That is what the 7 inputs are to the right of your speaker connections.
When you hook your "stereo TV" to your external sound unit
you need to run your cables to your aux input from your audio out jacks on the back of the TV. Once this is done you need to configure your TV and your sound unit to work with each other. You need to go into your TV settings and tell it where to send the audio to. If you hooked into the front audio output then you need to pick that selection. If you hooked into the back audio out you need to pick that selection. Once you have completed that you need to tell your sound unit where to pick the sound up at. If you plugged into the aux then put your sound unit on aux. If you have more than 1 aux pay attention to what aux your TV is coming in on and set your sound unit accordingly.

I have my Vizio hooked up to my computer. I have a sub-woofer and speakers. How do I get the speakers to work w/tv mode. They work when I am using computer mode. I have comcast cable and box.


Good day sir, Hi, you see, the TV produces its own sound, you need to feed this sound to your PC. here are options were you need to choose.
  1. You need a separate sub/speaker system for your TV. feed the sub/speaker with the sound line out from the TV. you also need an RCA to stereo baby plug adaptor for your sub/speaker.
  2. If you want to use your PC speakers, feed the line out of the TV sound to the line in of the PC, usually the line in is the blue port, you need an RCA to stereo baby plug. then activate the line in function from the mixer volume properties. This requires that you turn on your PC when in TV mode.
  3. Simply disconnect the sub/speaker baby plud input from the PC and connect it to the line out of your TV using an RCA to baby jack adaptor. (re connect again if you want it on your PC. this is very complicated)
  4. Does your sub has extra input? like aux, or cd, or tuner? feed the TV line out to one of these extra port. use the input selector switch from TV and PC. you need an RCA to stereo baby plug connector.
I forgot to ask, Does your TV has line out? if no, you are stuck with the built-in speakers.

Can't figure out how to hook up tv surround using rca cabels


On your jack panel in the rear of the set you should have a location saying Audio Out. They will be Red and White. Plug your RCA cable into those, then plug the other end into your surround sound system under Aux Input, some say TV input. Then switch your stereo to that particular mode and your all done.

Sound through stereo


that is very easy, just get an RCA cable, the one with red/white and if your tv has audio output connect the RCA cable to it and the other end to AUX into your stereo, change your input selector on the stereo to AUX every time you want to litsen through stereo speakers.
good luck

Panasonic SC PT660 Theater w Samsung Plasma -No sound w/Aux Input


My best advice is to do a factory reset on the system and then set it up again like you did when you first installed it. Unless your daughter physically damaged cables, the system should work OK. It's no use trying to work out what she disconnected as that will take even longer than a factory reset.
