Danger Danger Will Robinson!!!! Extreme Danger. Your TV has a "Hot Chassis" and when you connect the TV antenna you are Short Circuiting to EARTH. DO NOT USE IT. Take it to a TV repair place. THIS IS LETHAL!! A fault has developed and now the set is "LIVE". BE Careful please this is NO JOKE.

Trouble setting up sony soundbar surround sound, is tv arc compatable?

Arc ready is when there is electricity plugged into the TV,There is only one HDMI cable and that is the one you have. Cause all new TV's come with these cables.If you are using Av cables for the sound it will not work ,you must only use HDMI cable's.Cause some or most new TV's with HDMI dont like to use Av cables with HDMI,so if you havw something else that uses Av cables plug it out and sound will work.

My TV has only one place to connect a co-ax cable...there are no other hook ups

The adapter they sold you is wrong. You will need a device called an RF modulator. This box will have video and left/right audio input plugs and then the output will be co-ax to connect to your TV set. Radio Shack does have them, they run about $30. You will probably have to tell them what it is called because usually they do not have a clue. Just tell them you want an RF modulator part number 15-2526

How do we connect a DVD to a TV

Hi, Go to Radio shack store and get a cable signal splitter. Its a small device that splits 1 line into 2 or 3, so that you can run more players or recorders on 1 line in. See the guys there for more options.

I have a tv sky box in lounge and 2nd tv in a different room connected by a co ax cable. I need a desription or a diagram to get everything working. It worked prior to having a new carpet fitted and the...

Check first that the Co-Ax cable is firmly plugged into your SKY box in your lounge.
(I'm assuming that the carpet fitters did NOT put a nail thru your co-ax cable or pushed the cable onto any metal carpet grippers???)
If they might have done this accidentally, then, that's why it doesn't work!
Then make sure that the co-ax cable is plugged firmly into your second TV. Sometimes the central connector within the co-axial socket becomes loose and needs nipping back together with a pair of long-nosed pliers.
I'm assuming that you have plugged the Infra-red remote eye unit back into the second TV aerial socket - before you plugged the co-ax cable back in?
If you have, press the SKY remote to see if the Infra-red LED can be seen in the remote pod.
Finally, make sure that you have selected the correct channel number (or Input) on your second TV remote to select SKY.

Need some sound to my home theatre system

Just 2feb827.jpgrun red and white composite audio cables from the audio out ports above the AVin1 ports on the back of the tv to one of the audio input ports on the home theater system, remember which input port you connected it to and when you want to watch tv with the home theater sound just switch to that input on the home theater system.

External Sound Card

No, that's not going to work. Digital output is just that....Digital. Your trying to send a digital into analog....won't work. Your tv don't have red and white audio out. That's what you hook to, but it still wouldn't be 5.1. Your out of luck my friend. The ONLY way you'll get 5.1 out of that T.V. is to get a 5.1 reciever with CO-AX digital input...the SAME as whats on your T.V. You can only hook-up sound to your X-FI with the line in jack using a y-connector and 1/8" stereo plug....and it won't ever be 5.1. It can't that way. Only way to get 5.1 to work on the blaster is with the tosh-link optical input cable. This too is digital, but uses optics to send it. Remember, you are playing with 2 different formats. Analog with your white/red thing you made and then digital. Digital using co-ax or optical tosh-link. Completely you now know.
