    I tried setting up my Curtis DVD 1056A with my RCA TV model number F27442 without success. This type of RCA has the "color" coded slots for easy hook-up with a DVD player, but I am still unable to obtain the DVD's movie onto the TV? Both the TV and the DVD are working. Any ideas? PS. We do have a digital cable hooked to the TV.

Try TigerDirect.Com and go to connectors. They have a variety of attachments and converters. You may find an RCA to USB type if the TV uses USB. You did not say, what Connections are available on the TV. Very unusual for a TV to be without RCA in/out jacks.

How do you get sound to come from tv out of speakers of home theatre system

It just depends on the tv you have. If you hook up the RCA jacks to the (Audio out) of the TV into one of the (AUX in) ports of the home Theatre system you should be able to geet the sound that comes from the TV to play out the theatre system. If you are watching through a cable box you will need to hook the RCA cables to the cable box (Audio out) too the theatre systems (AUX in), in insted.

How do I listen to my Sharp LC-32L400M through my home theatre system?

Depending on the home theatre system and the tv. Your TV will have an audio out of some sort ie: Headphone jack, Digital Audio Out, Or something along those lines. And as far as the home theater system what kind of inputs do you have, Aux with a headphone jack, or digital audio in something along those lines. You have to be able to match them up. For example my TV has a headphone out, and my Surround has RCA cable input jacks for the AUX. I ran a headphone jack to 2 RCA white and red plugs. Once you have to correct connections made, you may have to adjust your tv volume mine is at about a quarter the way up, But make sure when you plug it all in that you select the correct input on your Theatre system. Hope this clears some issues up for you. Cheers

I just bought a RCA rtd3131 home theater system. My husband trashed the manual and i can't get all the speakers to work when the cable is on. When the DVD is on all the speakers work but the sound is not...

If the cable tv has audio out jacks, or if you have a cable box with an optical audio cable, plug either the audio jacks into the RCA system or the optical audio cable, and the system should automatically simulate 5.1, through Dolby Pro Logic II. All speakers will not be at the same volume as they are simulating surround sound, not just playing the audio.

The TV will never have sound for the DVD as this system has no audio out puts. Realistically, most televisions have 10w speakers, and this system is 130w, so the TV speakers are useless in comparison.

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.

Sony Model DAV ? SB 500W Home Theatre System

Please check at rear of TV for Digital Optical IN port as home theater should have optical out port at rear. If you got any optical in port in TV, just connect optical wire between TV and home theater.

2nd option is check Line Out pins at rear of home theater system, if found, hook red-white RCA cable there and put it to same input in TV where you hooked Video (composite or component) cable.

Let me know the results to help you more.
