This is a direct connect meaning you have to have a connection for every channel. So if your tv has outputs for 5.1 channels then yes you can but most tv's dont output this just stereo, meaning you will only get sound out of your left and right channel because most likely your tv might have the red and white outputs for right and left.
There is no dolby processor in the speaker system to take a 2 channel input and make it into 5.1. This is usually done through your sound card or your receiver. Some receivers will have preouts for this. i dont know if you have an amplifier hooked up to the tv if so you can see if your receiver has those pre-out connections.
i hope this helps clarify the situation.

Do not know how to wire my sa-w10 speakers together


For surround sound, you need an A/V receiver with 5.1 or 7.1 surround capability. Depending on what kind of receiver you have, the DVD player, satellite/cable box, etc hooks to the receiver, those signals go out to the TV, and the speakers hook to the receiver. The receiver decodes the signal from the cable/satellite box or DVD player and routes it to the appropriate speakers. If the TV program or DVD isn't HD or coded for surround sound, the best you can expect is 2.1 channel stereo sound. OR, you can hook everything (DVD, satellite/cable box) to the TV and run an optical cable from the Digital Output of the TV to the receiver, which is basically the same thing, just a different way to hook everything up. Hope this helps

I HAVE A SONY 5 DISC DVD SURROUND SOUND THEATER SYSTEM. I'M TRYING TO CONNECT IT TO MY TV BUT I DON'T GET ANY SOUND BUT GREAT PICTURE.


Not really enough info here to help much yet.

Helpful info would be:

1.Are you hooking up coax or optical surround from the DVD and have you set the amp to look at the correct type of input?
2. I could be much more specific with help if knew the model number of the surround system and DVD changer.

No surround sound on normal tv just dvds


Do you have a cable box or satellite box? If you do, try hooking up your TV sound through the box. Look for audio out in the back of box (white/red RCA Jacks). Hook RCA cable from cable box to surround amp. Even if the audio out jacks are being used already, you can use Y connectors to hook up the surround amp to the box.
Hope this works for you!

Center and rear speakers not working


In regard to the rear speakers, my system is an LG and the rear speakers will only work if the format that i'm watching (TV, DVD) is in Dolby surround sound 5.1. Normal tv will not give you surround sound unless it says otherwise, usually it will flash up on the screen at the start of the show. So test the unit with something that you know is in 5.1

Surround sound


your tv might have aux out on the back, I would use that first.
IF NOT, then you will need to use the cable box.  Insert the red and white plugs at the other end of  this cable into the AUDIO IN TV or cable box connectors on the 
media center. 
Be sure to match red to red and white to white. 
3. Use your TV remote control to turn the TV speakers 
down to minimum volume. 
This prevents the echo effect of audio playing 
through both the TV speakers and your 3•2•1® 
system speakers.

We have a Sony Trinitron and a Sony STR-K670P. We use to have it hooked up to a DVR, but now we went down to basic cable. I can't seem to get sound to come through my surround system. Any advise out there?...


if your trying to use the dvr still your probably not connecting it all properly. make sure that. having a sony trinitron you have alot of connections on the back. if you connect all of the accessories that you have on your tv directly into each input and use the tvs main output connection to connect straight to your surround sound. this should fix your problem. plus you wont have a bunch of stuff hooked up to your surround sound receiver

No sound when using dish or regular tv


This may be old news but just in case ...

Typically you need to consider the surround system as the central point for sound distribution (and in newer receivers, the distribution point for video signal as well). So you need to think of your TV and Satellite as sound sources and connect them to the IN side of your surround sound system. From the back of your TV then, look for the Audio OUT (commonly Red for right and White (or black) for Left. Connect these to the IN on the back of the surround system. Likewise for your satellite box. Then make sure you select the appropriate source on the surround system. If the system supports the video signal, you can route that as well. Beware that you'll need some sort of simulation (provided by the Phillips unit) to upconvert stereo to surround ... check the manual online. If you post model numbers for the Phillips and satellite units, we might be able to direct you more specifically (provided we can find manuals online)
