Question about Philips HTS-6500/37 System
I have a 24" lcd tv/monitor, that has no video out.. It has HDMI, S-video- D-sub, component and composite (Westinghouse 2410NM) and I bought the Philips HTS6500 and was wondering how to connect an HD receiver and an xbox 360 and have the sound for all come out of the speakers from the philips..
Unfortunately, the Westinghouse monitor has a bunch of inputs available, but completely lacks the audio output connection you need that would make life simple. Your Philips HTS only a single auxiliary audio input, but it does offer video and audio output connections to a monitor.
About the only solution I see available is to buy an A/V selector switch (available from Radio Shack and probably stores like Best Buy). Run the audio connections from the HD receiver and XBox through it, and send the output from the selector switch to the auxiliary audio input on the HTS6500. (You could use RCA Y-adapters to connect the audio to the monitor as well as to the selector switch if you really want to.) Send the video from these sources directly to the monitor.
You would need to select the source on the monitor, A/V switch and HTS to get the result you want, but it would be workable. (Now, why didn't Westinghouse simply include a set of audio output jacks with all those sources available?)
If this solution has gotten you going, please take a moment to rate it. And thanks for asking here!
