Question about Samsung HT-X50 System

1 Answer

Connecting a Zune MP3 to the HT-X50

Okay, I know that my HT-X50 comes equipped as iPod ready. I don't use iPod myself. I have recently purchased a Zune 120GB and I LOVE it. I would like to be able to use it with my sound-system, but have been unable to do so as of yet. I know that the Zune WILL work with sound systems as I can, without any issue, hook it up to my folks Bose. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Here is what I HAVE tried (I may have some tech jargon not correct):
1. I popped the supplied Zune USB into the USB port; I get a USB ERROR message.
2. I have purchased an Audio Cable and have connected it to both the Aux 1 and the Aux 2 with no effect.
3. I would attempt to connect to the Audio/Visual in, but there seems to only be an Audio/Visual out (the red/yellow/white holes) option.

I'm very frustrated as I want to be able to listen to my music without having to purchase another expensive item. Any help?

Get an Aux cable(about $10) and connect it to your Zune player and to Aux 1 on your Sound system. Make sure you change your function to Aux 1. Do not connect USB or anything else. That's working for me.

Need a new one

There are lot's of choices in looking for MP3 players. Of course the obvious first choice is the Apple iPod, but which one? It depends on lots of things.

If you're looking for just a simple, play music nothing else MP3 player, those can be really cheap. However, if you want something more, then you will want to look at more advanced things.

For a really cheap, small MP3 player, click here. Be aware that this does not have very much size, only 2 GBs in fact, which will hold around 200 songs.

If you have more music, or you just want a better MP3 player, you'll definitely want to look at iPods or possibly Zunes.

iPod: Everyone's heard of it, not much explanation needed. Great quality, generally good durability, awesome UI, etc etc.

Zune: The lesser known big competitor, Zune's are Microsoft's iPod, basically. They boast pretty much the same features as an iPod, but can be generally cheaper. However, you will find much more satisfaction out of apps from an iPod Touch than a Zune.

If you have at least 1000 songs, you will of course want to look at MP3 players at least 8GBs in size.

I would personally recommend an iPod Touch or iPod Nano. The iPod Touch is amazing, and they have recently gotten a new addition to their line, the 4G. It has of course the awesome iOS, with millions of apps ready to be used, a 720p video camera, an additional frontal camera for video chatting, an extremely clear 'retina display', and multi-touch gestures, just to name some new features.

Ultimately it comes down to, as with almost anything, Price vs. Quality. If you're looking for a cheap thing that just plays your music when you want it to, a cheap MP3 like the one I listed would be good. If you want all the bells and whistles, go for an iPod Touch or iPod Nano. If you're falling somewhere in between, go for a Zune.

Hook up patio speakers and use my cd/dvd/cable/ipod outside only

i'm not sure if this will work, but you could try connecting the rca stereo cables from you cable box to the cd input on the receiver those would be analog. then you could use the music channels at least. as for an ipod maybe sort of the same thing using an av cable instead of the dock;like i said i don't know if it will work but just a thought.

Connecting zun to car stereo

Short answer, nope. Completely different connections. You'll foul the Zune if you try it. Unless the iPod connection plugs into the headphone jack, but even then, I wouldn't.

I dont know what kind of mp3 player you have. Mp3 players can be great! you load music on them, and some of the nicer ones even video. The two big types are ipod and Zune you probably have one of the two. If you have a ipod, theirs a lot you can do. you can download a couple simple games, like guess that song, and stuff like that. just do a search for ipod games. you can often inport them to tthe ipod using itunes

if youve got a zune, boy are you in for a ride! the zune is an amaizing mp3 player, it has many features. Besides playing music, videos, and games, the zune lets you wirelessly connect to other zunes in the area and trade music. This music can be kept for 3 days. Now i mentioned games, The games are awesome, Zune users have created all kinds of games and software for the zune, from colored games like racing games RPG games, connect for games, and all the ipod classic type games. its a very powerful mp3 player which looks a little fancier than the ipod, and works just as well.
