Question about Audio & Video Receivers

3 Answers

I'm trying to get my headphones to work on my mac mini for Skype. The headphones and mike plug into the Bose sound volume controller. I've diligently selected the appropriate device for input and output on the mac sound preferences, and Skype preferences. I've made sure that mute is not selected anywhere. I can hear sound through the headphones but the system is not picking up any input from the microphone. In sound preferences the sound bar does not register at all when I speak.

    I did as suggested. I disconnected my speaker system and plugged in my headphones directly into the back of the mac. Two jacks, one for the mike and one for the sound. Same thing happened. I could hear the sound but the mike didnt register. I swapped the plugs around. No difference

Double check the mic settings, does the mic work? Try line in instead of microphone.

If you try plugging them into the audio in on the mac this will work.

The reason the mic is not registering is because the Audio In on the speakers are to attach an Ipod ETC to play through your speakers so it will not go through to the mac as you only have an Audio Out connection to the speakers and not an Audio In from the speakers to the Mac.

So please connect them to the Pink Audio In connector on your mac.

Hope This Helps

How do I connect these two together so I hear it from my surround sound?


You'll need some type of amplifier to drive the speakers. The Samsung TVs mostly have a line out and a headphone out, but that wont drive speakers unless they are powered speakers like PC speakers or a powered sound bar. (Like the Pioneer SP-SB23W soundbar/subwoofer) If you have some of these get a mini 1/8" stereo plug to RCA plug adapter from BestBuy or similar. If you have PC type speakers, You'll need a 1/8" mini stereo patch cord to go from the line out to the speaker input. (Set the audio out on the TV to variable so you can control the volume with the TV volume.)

I am trying to connect my Bose Wave Radio to my Yamaha RX S 70 receiver so that I can listen to the radio through my speakers. Right now the speakers are connected to the Yamaha...but radio isn't playing...


There's actually 2 ways of doing this.

Using the variable out connections on the Bose, connect your L&R channels to the desired input, I recommend the auxillary, on your Yamaha and select that input. Turn the volume all the way down on your Yamaha. Turn the volume on your Bose all the way up; then readjust the volume as desired on your Yamaha.

Optional connection; the headphone jack. Connect a 3.5mm mini to stereo plug cable from the Bose to Yamaha in the manner described as above and use the volume control approximately the same way.

Automatic muting turns sound off


fijate well in output impedance, which is correct and coupled to the speakers not less, because it causes protection to the team after that can work well.

Denon receiver problems


Check sound from headphones. These models have been known to have bad headphone jacks that make the unit think there are headphones plugged in even when there isn't. Sometimes just plugging in headphones and unplugging them will fix it for a while.

I just received for my birthday, a RCA 900 MHz headphones. Followed the instructions but cannot get it to work. I tried to install it on a Hitasha TV. Can you help me?


Hi,
First you need to make a test to adjust your headphones wireless system..
.pls follow the step below:
  • "Connect the RCAheadphone base" TO " headphones output of TV" with 3.5mm stereo headphone jack cable (than Tv should mute ) RCA pilot lamp should flicker in parallel to voice coming from TV
  • RCA headphone should have 2 different rotary adjustment on it..one "Volume" and the second "Frequency" adjustment
  • while TV talking , adjust slowly the "frequency rotary dial" to catch the headphone transmitter coming from RCA headphone base,when you catch it you will hear the voice of TV,(sometimes fine adjustment makes it better ) than adjust volume properly..
  • .After this pls do not touch Frequency dial any more..Just Turn it on ,and Volume adjustment ..Thats it..
  • After completion of this test ,I recommend you to switch / use "RCA Audio output plugs-white/Red cable " on the back of TV instead of TV's headphone output ,since it mutes the whole sound..RCA output plugs work independently from the TV's master volume control..
Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know.
Take care and please

My tuner will not work! I've had this unit for 4 years & it's always worked perfectly. Then yesterday, the tuner stopped working. "Tuning" flashes on-screen intermittently & no...


1. Verify the source of the signal - Look for any antennas that may have been hooked up, and verify connection has not been moved or removed.
2. Test with a different output by plugging in some headphones, and recheck the volume through the headphones.
3. Check that the A/B switch for the speakers has not been moved, and that they are switched to the correct speakers.
4. Try AM and FM for any signals both with speakers and then headphones.

Good luck!

How do i connect an ipod to my sony str-de310 receiver


Connecting to a home stereo
  1. For most home stereo systems, connect iPod to your amplifier's sound input using a 3.5 mm mini stereo to RCA adapter cable.
  2. Adjust the volume on iPod to less than half to prevent overdriving your amplifier. Adjust the listening volume using your stereo's controls.

    Note: Depending on your stereo, iPod may need to be set higher than half in order to get a proper volume through external speakers.
