I have this system and was wondering how you connect to the TV. I have connected the DVD via the yellow connector and this works fine with sound and picture. Is it possible to have the normal tv running through the stereo? If so how?
Never done this myself, but I would guess you take phono jacks from your TV (L & R out) and plug them into the back of the sound processor, iether VDP(AUX) or VCR(EXT) IN
then go to your remote and press (vcr(ext)/vdp(aux) repeat pressing until you hear you tv
each time you press button it should go through a selector menu

i am trying to do same thing - i suggest connect ps3 via optical cable to hi fi red/ white cables via a optical/ rca adaptor, the ps3 is connected to tv via hdmi so play dvd via ps3 sound will play through hi fi - but remember dont need the yellow dvd cable from hifi dvd player to tv any more as you will be using the ps3 as a dvd player instead
Have a look on the back input panel of the sc-dv290. Check for a "PHONO" input. If there is no phono input it will not play turntable. If there is: then plug it the turntable in and switch the SC-DV290 to PHONO mode.
Another way would be to purchase a "phono preamplifier" from ebay: Hook the turntable into the phono preamplifier, and the preamplifer into the SC-DV290 AUX input.
ION has just released a turntable that connect via USB! You can now play your lp's on anything that accepts usb cables. It is available at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. Also, there are many various turntables available that connect via RCA cable. Bet Buy and Circuit City both carry mdels that will hook to your unit via RCA cable. They have some models on sale at times for under $90 bucks! Thanks for using FixYa! And don't forget to rate my solutuion! Good luck, and Happy listenng!
Make sure the output in your tv menu is set to external speakers. Any digital optical cable, or RCA jacks hooked up properly from the TV's out put to the receivers input should work just fine. Take your time, retrace your steps, and make sure each cable is in the correct input/output. And make sure the receiver and TV are on the proper settings. Good Luck, and thanks for using FixYa!
are you trying to use the surround sound for movies or music ? , ive got the dvd version of this system (sc-dv290) and ive noticed the surround sound tends not to perform well with music , but sounds great with movies. i think its because the movies have dolby digital and music does not. The dolby pro logic in my opinion doesnt really make that much of a difference in sound unless the sound is cranked up past 44db on the amplifier. the only cables you need are the ones that are attached to the surround sound speakers and they cannot be removed so it cant be the wiring . I reckon you have a 1 - faulty system 2 - listening to music 3 - maybe not pressing the pro logic button on the sound processor. Hope this helps
I'm currently working on a solution fot this problem and will post my results as soon as I succeed. I have got the ribbon cable but having trouble getting terminal that matches the back of the system.
Hope to have some news soon after the weekend
