Have lenoxx ht 500 surround sound speakers & dvd but dvd is broken, need to purchase another dvd player but can't source lenoxx model, what other models can i connect surround sound to? or whe

If your surround sound receiver unit has rca audio inputs(red/white), you can hook up any brand of DVD player that has rca outputs. You would hook the yellow output from DVD player to yellow input on TV. Hook red/white output from DVD player to red/white input on surround receiver. Hope this helps.

I need to connect a samsung bluray/receiver to the tv and cable box

Here is the easiest way to do so.
  1. Connect the Cable box and any other devices (ie game systems, VCR, ETC) to the TV.
  2. Locate the Audio OUT on the back of the TV.
  3. Connect cable from the Audio OUT on the TV to the Audio IN on the BluRay
  4. If your TV supports HDMI then connect a HDMI cable from the HDMI out on the receiver to an available HDMI input on the TV.
  5. By connecting in this version when you tune your receiver to AUX this will play what ever input you have selected on the TV through the surround speakers.
  6. When watching DVD make sure to change input back to DVD.
Note: Make sure you turn the volume all the way down on the TV to avoid distortion due to the delay between the receiver sound and the TV.

Enjoy the new toy,

Hi, You have to make sure you are using the "audio out" from the dvd/surround into the "audio in" on your TV also in some case TVs will need to change the "input" with your remote to see where you connected your dvd/sur also some TVs have a switch for "n" or "off" for internal speakers and also you could have that option in your audio menu on your TV, Hope it help, good luck.

Sound only from left front and right front speakers possibly my projection screen tv is only 2.1 channel does this mean i cannot have surround

surround receivers are supposed to be able to turn a stereo signal into a surround signal.  if the surround unit is producing just a stereo sound, then the tv is most likely outputting in mono, and not stereo; or there is no surround sound to decode..

How do i get surrond sound for just tv shows

surround sound only comes over the digital out on back of the TV or better, on back of the Verizon boc, itll be a orange RCA jack I believe or the fiber TOS link, These go into your receiver into the same style jack. Digital in may only be associated with the DVD input. if your tv has a HDMI input, you can use the HDMI cable from the convertor box to the TV and then the digital out on the TV into the receiver, but I like the digital out to go straight to the receiver from the convertor box. HDMI tpo the TV will allow you to watch TV on the internal speakers if you dont want to use the amp.
