Have you tried sending out the signal from a TV to an amplifier then to the speakers? Can you give me a specific set-up on everything you are using, including cables?

Internal speakers won't turn off when external audio is connected

Normally , you would expect the TV sound to stop when headphones are plugged in. Obviously not in this case. If you have a set of headphones, try them and see if the TV still has speakers on. If it does, then there may be a setting on the setup of the TV to get headphones to work. If the TV speakers stop, then I would think that the Logitech are not compatible with the TV. The only other thing would be is to get into the TV and disconnect the TV,s own speakers. If the wires are soldered on and not terminal connected, carefully cut 1 of the wires off near the speaker. If 1 wire is cut, the speaker wont work. Make sure both the TV and the additional speakers (If they have their own power supply) you are using are unplugged from the power before you go doing this...!

The jack you describes here "Digital Ouput Device To" means, you can connect these jacks to the output of a digital device, such as DVD or so. It is meant for to get signal into the TV, not ot out.
HDMI [High Definition Multimedia Interface] is a type of connection, which the TV an be connected to any HDMI device from outside. Both the above said are, signal in to TV connections. Not out.
If you want to connect this TV to any amp or any other external audio devices; look for any audio out option is there.

I'm trying to set up my Onkyo HT-r380 receiver (which came in the HT-S330 home theater system). I can get AM and FM radio to play on all the speakers. I can not get sound from my XBOX 360. The 360 is...

I looked at the manual and they provided the following settings.

To listen to audio received by the HDMI IN jacks through your TV's speakers:
  • Set the "TV Control" setting to "On" (? 37) for an p-compatible TV.
  • Set the "Audio TV OUT" setting to "On" (? 36) when the TV is not compatible with p or the "TV Control" setting to "Off".
  • Set your Blu-ray Disc/DVD player's HDMI audio output setting to PCM.
  • To listen to TV audio through the AV receiver, see "Connecting External Components" (? 17).

As an idea, I was thinking as I read your post, I thought that this would be an ideal application for a pair of "Wireless/Ired Headphones", you could plug these into the headphone socket, and then use these to hear your sounds, these units have a mute on board.
You could indeed wire it into, the unit going in through, the back of the, set. You could wire it up, but in reality, it would be better to use a third party device and that way would not compromise any warranty.

Thank you for responding. I called in an audio specialist to look at the whole system--he believes there is a problem with the amplifier. Will post what he finds out when he looks inside.

I have the logitech mm50 portable speakers; the on/off button is flashing red and the 3D-sound button is flashing amber; the battery is fully charged; it's been like thise for days; i've tried holidng all,...

Here's what is going on - the mm50 speakers were made in 2005, before iPod decided to release third generation, fourth generation, and fifth generation players. The product specs for the mm50 might have said it was compatible with an "iPod classic" or an iPod "Nano" - but they were referring to an earlier generation of player. These Logitech speakers/dock just isn't compatible with 2006-2008 iPods.

Reset the ipod and run the Recovery Tool like the user manual suggests - the full manual is available at Apple's website.

If it is still possible, return the Logitech speakers.

Hd compatible?

The instructions for your TV set should answer that! From what I remember, I believe your set is not HD compatable. I am guessing from memory with this.

Adding a audio jack to KV-32S42 sony TV

yes, just tap in at one of the speakers. The jack should have an internal switch so that the internal speaker is hooked up when the headphones are not in. Most TVs are now stereo (even though analog broadcast signals are mono) so may want to get a stereo jack and tie in from both speakers.

Please help with getting 5.1 sound from my TV!

You must run a Digital Optical cable from your PS3 to your reciever. Then press your function button on your recievers remote until you see SAT/CABLE on your recievers display. Next go to your PS3 settings and go to Sound settings, then Audio Output settings, and select Digital out (OPTICAL) then your done. This is the only way to get true digital sound from your PS3 to your reciever.
