The instructions I am giving are for the Samsung HT-TZ512 - if you have a different model, let me know. The relevant sections in the manual are on pages 28-29 if you want to get a visual, but basically:
1. There are 5 types of iPod that require you to purchase an additional dock for the Samsung docking station that do not come supplied with the home theater system automatically - let me know exactly which type of iPod you have.
2. Once you have the required dock, plug the docking station into the home theater system (in the port marked "iPod"), and put your iPod in the dock with the correct dock adapter for your iPod model.
3. Switch the home theater to the "OSD iPod" mode by pressing the Function button on the home theater system itself (or by pressing the "Port" button on the remote control).
4. In order to see the iPod menu on your television screen, make sure you have a video cable connected to your TV, and make sure the TV is on the right input (which would be the channel that you would normally watch DVD's on through your home theater system).

If you give me the EXACT model number of your home theater system, iPod, and television, I can tell you exactly how to hook it up.

Here is the manual for the Samsung HT-TZ512:

Ipod's utilize headphone jack style connectors which can be purchased just about anywhere electronics are sold, however most dvd players utilize RCA jacks so you must purchase an adapter from ipod jack to RCA jack it runs usually about $10-25.00 also you can purchase a FM transmitter kit for about the same price but sound quality is not as good so my suggestion is go for rca converter and hook it up to audio input in back of dvd player or stereo for best quality.

How do I hook up to TV?


Should be a pretty good "map" of how to hook this up that came with the unit. That being said. Hook up all of your speakers and place the where you want them. From the back of the theater in a box there should be a video output. Go from that to the video input on the tv. The audio out should go to the same input on the tv but on the audio jacks. Your main source (cable box) should go from Aud/Vid out of that to the input on the Theater box. That is the basics. There will be other inputs for an Ipod and DVD player that will hook up the same way.

This systems speakers and remote were donated to our Boys and Girls Club. We did not get the DVD player. Is there a way to get just a DVD player that will work with all the speakers?


You sort of have to stick with it or something like it from Panasonic.

Ask and ye shall receive. Here's the electronic part and an iPod dock on eBay...

"Comes with ipod dock and remote as pictured if you cover extra shipping charges sub can be included but no speakers comes with connectors to connect speakers to unit."

How can I hook an iPod touch to a coby dvd968?


It has a USB port that you may be able to us with your iPod's sync cable (I'm not familiar with this Coby model) but you can always hook an iPod to any stereo or home theater using a mini jack to RCA stereo audio cable, just plug one end into the headphone jack on the iPod and the red/white cables go into an audio input in back (or front) of stereo or home theater. Good Luck.

Ipod!!


Are you trying to hookup thru USB? Unless its ipod compatible it wont work (and its not). Your only choice is to buy an RCA to mini headphone cable and play it thru the input of your choice.
