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!

harder to do but you can probably still use the display on the unit.
I am unfamiliar with the onkyos but am often setting up integras which are basically onkyos.

Find the setup button on the face of the receiver. It might be called different things but basically you will call up the settings and use the arrows - enter - and return to navigate in and out of the menu options.

Integras have that will allow you to;
configure connected speakers
- sub yes-no
- center yes - no
- rear surround yes-no
- speaker size small-large

input config (mapping audio, video connections to the input names)
ex:
- "Cbl/Sat" -> HDMI 1 - 4
- "BD/DVD" -> HDMI 1 - 4

etc.

You'll get the hang of it.

OR - do you have a small TV with a composite video connection?

I carry around a portable Coby battery powered monitor that has a composite video input for these types of problems. Composite video is always active.

Good luck!

How do i hookup my magnavox mrd 210 to my lcd tv for surround sound. have tried to connect with rca wires in back of tv to surround sound system and nothing. tried side of tv and nothing. my surround sound...


Have you seen the user guide?

The TV is intended to be an end point of the video, not a source of audio. Many TV's (monitors) don't have ANY audio, much less surround sound capability. Composite Video is theminimalist video connection for setup; Component video to the TV should suffice for viewing DVD's.

Is your TV the SOURCE of surround sound programming (via an antenna) or does the programming come from elsewhere like a Cable Box? THAT would be the source you need to tap for surround sound.

Think about where you TV audio originates. Unless you have an antenna on your TV, everything IT hears comes from an external audio device like a cable/sat box which almost certainly has a digital audio output and/or HDMI.

I would recommend you carefully utilize your limited connections this way:

Using Page 10 as a guide.

IF your TV has 2 HDMI's or one HDMI AND one Component input:

Cable box (Component Out and Analog Stereo RCA) or HDMI Out to corresponding TV In's if available.

Cable Box coaxial audio to the HTS (3). This way the best broadcast TV multichannel audio goes to the best electronics and speakers.

HTS HDMI Out (9) to TV Component In (if available), otherwise use Component Out (7). I recommend saving the highest quality video delivery path for your native BD because broadcast Hi-Def video is always bandwidth compromised while BD is the best video available today.

Composite Video Out (6) to Composite Video In on TV for HTS management functions.

You still have both Aux In (4) pairs).

Bose 3-2-1 - trouble connecting to Samsung 26" LCD monitor


Sounds like you might be out of luck with the older 3-2-1 system. I am in the same boat, and am thinking I will only be able to utilize the "audio out" on the back of my Samsung LCD, and run that to the "aux in" on the Bose 3-2-1. This of course will not allow me to utilize the 3-2-1's DVD player, but by using a seperate DVD player, such as a Blu-Ray hooked to the LDC TV, the video will make it to the screen, and then the audio should make it through the Bose 3-2-1 speakers. Probably not the "best" solution, but one that I am going to attempt.

Can you explain a bit more please. What exactly is the problem? Are you getting any picture or audio through to the TV? Are you getting any picture or audio through to the home theatre?

I already have the manual in front of me for your home theatre system. If you can give me some more information I can help you out.
Thanks.

Composite_to_component_OUT_converter


they do make a adapter that converts composite video to s-video. Another way is to use a audio video receiver that converts composite video to hdmi. The model # is rx-v663 yamaha a/v receiver sold at bestbuy. The adapter which would be a lot cheaper is also on bestbuy.com you can type in composite video to s video converter in search box on bestbuy.com or google it.

PANASONIC HOMETHEATER SYSTEM TO PLASMA TV


Some where on the back, bottom or sides of your plasma tv you will find input jacks for the audio and video. You must know what type of inputs you want to use.
Most have have 4 types

HDMI (audio and video signal combined)
Component (red, blue, green RCA jacks for video only)
Composite (yellow RCA jack for video only)
S-video ( larger round black jack with video only)

The Panasonic should have all of those also. I am certain it has HDMI and Component.

Connect the HDMI cable into the output HDMI jack from the Panasonic into the HDMI input jack on the TV.

Then using your remote for the TV make sure you select the HDMI input for viewing.

If you use any of the other video outputs on the Panasonic just connect it to the same type of input jack on the TV. Once again check the owners manual for more detailed instruction if you need them.

You must always be sure to have the proper input selected on the TV to be able to view it.

You can also respond back with more questions if you have any.
I am happy to help.
