Video out on rtd325 to Video in on TV, set tV to correct input source, not red/white cables to Audio or AUX INPUT on the rtd325 and run those to Audio out on the comcast box, set rtd325 to AUX fcuntion when watching comcast
Well, since the "regularTV" has no make or model number I will have to guess what outputs it has to suit your surround sound system which also has no make or model number! Using outputs that show left and right speaker channels wire each to the left and right speaker channels of the surround sound amplifier. How many, I don't know!
The best way is to connect your laptop to a spare HDMI input on your TV first, then use the AUX OUT from your TV to the AUX IN1 of the Phillips Home theatre system using a standard RCA cable. The only catch with this is that you will have stereo analog audio, NOT digital surround. However, by pressing the "SURROUND" button of your Phillips HTS remote you can switch the audio output to multi-channel surround, stereo or party mode.
What is the model number of the TV you are using?
Run a regular RCA type audio cable from your TV audio out to your Home Theatre audio in. That is what I have done recently with my Samsung LCD and Home Theater. You then have to put your Home Theater on Aux 1 or Aux 2 to get the sound from TV. Ensure your TV's volume is off.
no thanks to the solutions listed-i have figured it out! you use the remote that it came with and press and hold the stop button on the remote and the dvd player at the same time and it will open....waalaa.....i'm a friggin' magician man...hahahahhahahaa
Ensure that there are no conductive material's (metallic thread, fine wire such as shielding braid)near your Aux inputs that may be shorting your connections. You could also try using an emory board or fine sand paper, or even a pot scrubber on your inputs and RCA plugs in case it's just simply dirty and hampering the connectivity.
