Question about Onkyo TX-SR605 Receiver

1 Answer

Use JBL Creature speakers (pc speakers) through tv

Any help welcome.
I currently run my JBL Creatures through my tv, I plug a jack into the amp/woofer and the other jack into the headphone socket on my tv, this allows me to control the volume with my tv remote, unfortunately, the sound is not as great as it should be.
If i just run rca to rca the sound is as it should be, but i cannot control the sound with my tv remote.
Bit of a catch 22 situation.
anyone got any ideas.
Dave

    Thankyou, I have already tried the menus on the tv, but no joy.

    the tv is a Samsung PS42QHDX plasma tv.

    I have also thought about runnning jack from woofer to sky + box then optical audio out from sky + box to optical audio on plasma??

There may be a setting in the TV's menu to set fixed or variable output for the rca's. You want variable. Some have two sets of audio outputs for fixed and variable. Depends on the TV. Check those two things. If no help let me know what the TV is and we'll see what we can do.

Humming sound cumin from my creative inspire 4.1 woofer


Make sure that you've fully pushed in the jack to the sound card.....maybe you've not connected the jack into the correct socket on your soundcard as there are usually 3 identical sockets...but only 1 is the correct one. Sometimes colour-coded green. Try it in each one in turn. If you have headphones, try plugging them in as you will hear sound in them when you've got the correct socket!

How do i connect the following speakers to a tv?


Look for a headphone jack plugin on the TV, and if you have one then plug the speakers into that. Otherwise if you only have RCA audio jacks on the TV (red/white plug-ins), you'll need an RCA male/stereo female adapter. I did a quick search and found this one on Amazon for $1.49:

http://www.amazon.com/Male-3-5mm-Stereo-Female-Y-Cable/dp/B000I23TTE

You could probably find one at Radioshack or a local electronics store otherwise.

Also, in case you need it, here's a link to the owner manual:

Hello, I have a pair of JBL Platinum Series speakers linked to my PC, which are just a few months old. They were working well, but they have stopped working. Although the green light comes on when I turn...


Hi Lauren This is the process of elimination which i would follow in a similar situation: -check cable going from computer to speakers, make sure both ends are plugged in correctly; -ensure sounds are not muted on your computer;
-try to play a song using another program such as windows media player. If this works, it's most likely the iplayer program which has been muted. -If none of this has helped, try plugging the speakers into a different device, such as a stereo headphones jack, ipod headphones jack, even a TV headphones jack. If the speakers still do not work, they are probably no good.
Hope this helps, Benji

You would need to replace the headphone socket then and if I am correct it should be mounted to a plug in board. I first need the model number of your Samsung to look up the part number. The model will be on a sticker on the side and will be something like HTP50***/XAA or something like that.

My tv has one sub output socket,but my active sub woofer has a red and white input sockets.what lead do i need to connect it up with?


Sounds like the output on the TV is a phono socket or a jack and the inputs on the sub woofer take banana plugs. You need (or should make up) a lead with a phono or jack plug one and and two banana plugs the other end. (phono plug/socket has two connections and banana plugs just one)

If you can provide the model numbers of the two bits of equipment I can check this for you.

No audio output to tv on my dell 1545


That, & most, earphone sockets, simply doesn't have enough "Current" or signal voltage to drive your TV set's audio in Amplifier. You need to get a Pre-Amp, to amplify the signal, up to a level that can be used by the TV. So you need to purchase, or build from a kit, a small stereo pre-amp and insert it between your laptop & TV audio In.
