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.

Coby DVD968 surround sound w/TV


you have to check to see if your TV also has "AUDIO OUTPUT" ports, they would be red/white (not next to a yellow - those are inputs", you would hook up red/white from back of the TV to the back of the DVD player where it is labeled "input", you then turn on the dvd player and press the 'source' button to switch it to the right input for your connection. P.S. - it will only do the front two speakers because your tv only outputs 2 channel audio.

Need to know is there is a input on the back of the sony davdx255 for the tv to recieve surround sound.


Does a TV NEED surround sound if you have a surround sound HIFI? Normal setero sound would probably suffice as the TV might not actually have electroics or speakers to do anything but mic\x it down to lo-fi stereo.

Correlary: You COULD just drag regular RCA audio out of your cable box to the TV if you want to watch the news or talk shows.

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.

Hooking up cable through ht-x50


You need an Optical Audio Cable. Hook one end to the HD Cable Box and the other to your Surround Sound System. If you dont have an Optical Cable to your Cable Box, then try using the usual audio cables. But, I have HD and it worked with the Optical Audio Cable.
