The coby dvd 988 has 2 rca audio input jacks, you need to have these connected to your TV AUDIO OUT jacks, these are usually colored red and white like right and left stereo jacks, be sure to set up the TV for AUDIO output through these connections, some tv`s require that the internal built in speakers are cancelled and the audio output jacks are enabled. Set the coby input signal to receive the port you pluged the tv signal into.

Hi, unfortunately Coby is not manufactured any longer. I have a problem not the same as yours, but I can't use my headphone when using my Panasonic Blu-Ray player. Have to use the sony digital surround sound. nothing comes through the Coby...If you have an extended warranty, I would call and have it replaced with another 40 inch brand..They can't fix it.I'm calling to have mine replaced or repaired...sorry i couldn't be better at helping..

Can't get surround sound for regular television. DVD sound is great but nothing on the TV channels either regular or HD


Only a digital audio source will produce surround sound.

What's the audio source you're using for TV sound? It shouldn't be the TV, but what IT's watching, like the cable/sat box.

Make sure the RCA cable is going from an audio OUT on TV or DirecTV box to a red/white (non-digital) audio IN on surround sound or home theater system.
