From Cable Box to Input on DVD Player, from DVD Player Out, to TV in, from TV Audio Out to Home Theater Audio In.

That should work.

Will have to have the VCR on to watch cable. Plus make sure that you use A/V cables as much as possible. Coax works ok, but not as good as R/W/Y.

I have a RCA Home Theater System RT2380BK I have the speakers wired but i want to hook it up to my dish network when I'm watching movies.Can u help me?


The dish network reciever should have audio and video out on the back, If its a HD device it should also have COAX out (hd audio) get the cables for audio and feed the into a input on the back of your home theater system, there should be several inputs, usually labled like video 1 video 2, tape deck etc etc. the audio in are red and white or red and black usually, the coax connector is orange, and you only need one cable to hook that up. If you have HD audio on the dish network that will sound best in your home theatere system

I hooked it up the way the manual said and it doesnt work


Try whatever applies best below, in order...

Cable Box optical Digital Audio to Digital Audio In. (This brings TV-related multi-channel and normal audio into the receiver so you can hear it over the speakers. Turn TV volume OFF.

The cable box probably has a pair of stereo Audio Out RCA jacks. Run those directly to the TV so you can watch and hear cable programming over the TV's speakers without having to turn the system on. Turn TV volume UP.

Depending on your TV's Video In capabilities, use the Cable Box HDMI, Component (Red, Blue and Green), or Composite Video (single Yellow associated with the Audio Out) directly attached to the TV.

TV Hookup


The TV is NOT a source of high quality sound.

For the best serious audio I would recommend drawing the audio-only digital feed from the Cable Box via its highest quality audio output. Then turn the TV's volume down. Also run the vanilla RCA stereo audio pair from the cable box to the TV in case you just want to check the weather.

What exportable audio is originating with the TV in your scenario? I couldn't find any documentation supporting an audio output of any flavor.

Isn't the root source of the program actually a cable box, satellite, dvd or blu-ray? Wouldn't THAT be where you want the audio feed to the Panasonic to come from?

No sound on sony tv


Your set may have a choice of audio sources and outputs in the basic (initial) setup since it is not uncommon to mute the internal speakers and get your sound from a home theatre system or receiver. Also, if you are using S-video connectors between converter and set, there is no sound path, this is video only, and you will have to add a couple of cables, likely with RCA connectors, between the two.
For reference: Audio cables: Red=right channel, White=left.

Multiple game systems through home theatre


what you need to do is hook all of your gaming systems into the "in ports" on your gameing switch, then hook the set of cables you want to use to the "out port" then the other end of those cables need to go to the "in port" on the home theatre system (you can pick which in port you would like to use, it should say which is which on the back by the ports) after doing this you need to find the out port on the home theatre system that corresponds with the cables you are using ie, rca component or hdmi. once you find that port you need to hook a cable to that into your 'in port" on your tv., lastly turn on all of your gaming systems, your tv and your home theatre system. and on your home theatre system select which ever port you hooked the gaming switch into, then turn your tv to the correct channel that you hooked the cables into the tv, lastly go through each swithc on your gaming switch to be sure that they all work, if not, you might want to use all the same cables for all connections, ie, all component all rca or all hdmi, i prefer component.

Wiring problems


Not certain if HDMI can be used in a setup like this. I'd try it from the home theater (HT) to the TV, and other wiring for the other components.

For video:
All of these should have component connections (Y/Pr/Pb). You'll only need the video cables for each device:
  • Video out from cable, HT, and combo player.
  • Video in to TV. Your choice of inputs.
For audio:
Hopefully, the two output devices (the combo player and the cable box) have digital audio (fiber optic, or RCA coaxial). Otherwise, you'll only get stereo sound. VHS is stereo only anyway.
  • Audio out from cable box and combo player.
  • Audio in to HT.
The TV won't have anything to do with audio in this setup. Alternatively, you could try hooking up all inputs to the TV, and connecting audio out from the TV to the HT. Works best if this connection is digital, for surround.
