Re: connect Creative 5.1 A500 speaker system to Phillips...
Just buy two connectors(shown above). Its having two holes upside. 1. Connect the connector to one hole of the other. 2. Connect the audio cable to the dvd. 3. Then connect the connectors to the other side of the audio cable. 4. Lastly, connect the three stereo output cables of the Creative speakers to the three holes of the connector simultaneously. I have tried this at home with my Creative Inspire M5300 speakers and philips dvd. All the five speakers are working. -------------------------------- Rovan C

The best way is to connect your laptop to a spare HDMI input on your TV first, then use the AUX OUT from your TV to the AUX IN1 of the Phillips Home theatre system using a standard RCA cable. The only catch with this is that you will have stereo analog audio, NOT digital surround. However, by pressing the "SURROUND" button of your Phillips HTS remote you can switch the audio output to multi-channel surround, stereo or party mode.
What is the model number of the TV you are using?
1. Launched your Creative SoundBlaster Live program
2. In the main deck of the Surround Mixer, click the speaker button
3. In the speaker view, click the speaker selection button to select the 5.1 speaker mode if it is not selected
4. Reboot your computer
" Some DVD\'s sound fine whilst others have background sounds but no
voices. I do have an old model TV that has mono sound.Would that cause
" Hi, I wrote a short article for someone who had a similar problem a few days ago. I will edit it for you so that it fits. Here it is. Your DVD player should have output connectors in the
back of it to plug your amplifier or receiver into. If you have a Stereo
system (no surround sound speakers, or front center speaker) connect
the DVD Audio Cables on the back of the DVD player to the STEREO (or MIXED ) Output
Jacks. If it is connected to the Left Front and Right Front jacks of
the "Surround Sound" output jacks instead of Stereo(or MIXED) then the dialog
will be sent to the CENTER channel output. If you have no center channel
speaker you will not hear it. Thus no dialog. NOTE: In your case for the TV that is mono, here is the solution. 1 Connect a stereo pair of RCA cables (red and white "male" connectors at each end) to the Mixed or Stereo Output of the DVD player (NOT ANY SURROUND OUTPUTS). 2 Purchase an RCA type "Y" connector that has 2 female to a single male connectors on it. Walmart about 3 dollars. 3 Plug the single male plug of the Y connector into the back of the TV set's single mono audio input. 4 Connect the stereo RCA pair from the MIXED output of the DVD player into the Y connector that is now on the back of yourTV. 5 Run your yellow Video output from the DVD into the Back of the Set's yellow input. That should do it. The sound should be clear and correct with dialog, effects and music. Hope this helps, Best, Mark
Yes, I can help you. Your DVD player should have output connectors in the back of it to plug your amplifier or receiver into. If you have a Stereo system (no surround sound speakers, or front center speaker) connect the DVD Audio Cables on the back of the DVD player to the STEREO Output Jacks. If it is connected to the Left Front and Right Front jacks of the "Surround Sound" output jacks instead of Stereo is that the dialog on is sent to the CENTER channel output. If you have no center channel speaker you will not hear it. If you have a surround sound system with two speakers in front and two speaker in back. Then you need to make a change in the Receiver Setup (Which may be set up for 3 speakers in front) so that it is set up for 2 speakers in front. The last thing my simply be that you have a center channel front speaker that is not completely connected because of a wire falling off, etc. Hope this helps, Best, Mark

I know this is not the answer that you want to hear, but: That television is not capable of delivering audio output to all 5 speakers - it is a stereo-only TV, which only delivers 2 channels.
Furthermore, that Coby DVD-937 only has Digital Audio outputs rather than inputs, which is very strange and complicates our problem immensely. You will get 5-channels with DVD or radio play, but getting 5 channels for TV is not possible without additional equipment.
The manual for the Coby mentions a "Digital Decoder Amplifier," which would work. You would connect a digital audio cable from the area marked "Coaxial" on the back of the Coby to a digital audio IN on the back of an external amplifier. You would connect the speakers to this amplifier, instead of directly to the back of the Coby. Then you would need a cable or satellite box with digital audio outs (fairly common nowadays) to another digital audio IN on the back of the amplifier. The cable or sat box you may have already, but you may need to purchase such a "Digital Decoder Amplifier" or other digital amplifier with appropriate speaker wires and 2 digital audio input slots (not to mention two digital audio cables). Fairly complex. Possibly expensive.
Philips DVP 3256 has 6 outputs which takes in RCA connectors Altec lansing VS3251 has 3 STEREO outputs. Buy 3 nos of STEREO (female) to RCA (male) cables 1. Connect the Altec's green wire to first stereo-to-RCA cable. RCA ends to DVP 3256's Front left and Front right 2. Connect the Altec's black wire to second stereo-to-RCA cable. RCA ends to DVP 3256's Rear left and Rear right
3. Connect the Altec's orange wire to third stereo-to-RCA cable. RCA ends to DVP 3256's Centre/Sub woofer. Interchange RCA ends if the Subwoofer sounds dull.
