The other wire is an S/PDIF wire, it lets you hook up your Xbox 360, PS3, DVD player, etc. that has S/PDIF (Digital) out. Connect it from your device to the S/PDIF input on your soundbox. It can also be used to output Dolby Digital Surround Sound to a home theater system - just plug in the cord to your Sound Box's S/PDIF output, and plug it into the S/PDIF (Digital) input on the receiver of your home theater system. The Sound Box can act as a pass-through, allowing you to use it as a receiver to a 5.1 system that doesn't have and S/PDIF input, such as computer 5.1 or 7.1 speakers. Just connect your game console or DVD/Blu-ray player to the Sound box's S/PDIF input, and connect your 5.1 or 7.1 speakers. Note: the Sound Box MUST be connected to a USB port to receive power in order for you to use it as a pass-through. (Or at all, mind you.)

Do not know how to wire my sa-w10 speakers together


For surround sound, you need an A/V receiver with 5.1 or 7.1 surround capability. Depending on what kind of receiver you have, the DVD player, satellite/cable box, etc hooks to the receiver, those signals go out to the TV, and the speakers hook to the receiver. The receiver decodes the signal from the cable/satellite box or DVD player and routes it to the appropriate speakers. If the TV program or DVD isn't HD or coded for surround sound, the best you can expect is 2.1 channel stereo sound. OR, you can hook everything (DVD, satellite/cable box) to the TV and run an optical cable from the Digital Output of the TV to the receiver, which is basically the same thing, just a different way to hook everything up. Hope this helps

How too hook surround system to regular tv. Example : a football game. Thanks


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!

I've seen the same problem, went thought a couple of cable boxes. Turned out to be an AC line problem. Try plugging the TV into a different out, maybe in another part of the house.

Sony surround sound hookup


In short, the answer is: Hook up all three to each other. I have a Samsung DLP HDTV, and I was trying to hook up a Sony DAV-HDX500 home-theater system and a Comcast HD set-top box, but I found that the Sony user guide is helpful only for setting up the speakers. Most of what it had to say about HDMI and getting the TV sound or cable sound to go through the speaker system was wrong (or, at least, it didn't work for me). So, here's what I did. I connected Component video cables (Y/Pb/Pr out) from the Cable box to the TV (Y/Pb/Pr in), audio cables from the Cable box (audio out) to the Sony system ("SAT/Cable" audio in), and an HDMI cable from the Sony system (HDMI out) to the TV (HDMI in). This allows me to 1) watch DVDs with surround sound through the TV's HDMI source (when the "DVD" format is selected on the Sony system), 2) watch cable with surround sound through the TV's Component source (when the "SAT/Cable" format is selected on the Sony system), and 3) watch cable WITHOUT the surround sound, as I did before I ever had the Sony system. One item of note: When watching a non-HD channel with the surrond sound on, the audio is slightly out of synch with the video; thankfully, there's no such problem on HD channels. Anyway, I hope this helps. It drove me crazy for two days straight!

Only one centerback speaker


First off, I would like to say congrats on the receiver purchase - it's a nice one. To get true 7.1 surround sound, you will have to run another wire to another speaker. Any of these listening modes that you want to get are most likely using the capabilities of these 7 speakers. If you were to hook up one speaker to the two rear surround channels, you would be defeating the purposes of having that extra "speaker" and not really be gaining anything. If you really do want to access the 7.1 listening modes, you could always hook up another speaker and just hide it behind your TV, depending on your setup (essentially tuck it in a place where it wouldn't be heard, close to the receiver so that you don't need a long wire run).

In answer to your specific question, there would be ways of doing this, but just not all that advisable - you'd be posing a hazard to your speaker and/or the receiver. Like I mentioned, I'd recommend going through the trouble of running another wire and hooking up an additional speaker for the rear surround. If you're going to be using a Bluray or HD-DVD player, it'll be worth it. Hopefully this helps to somewhat answer your question.

Hooking up to digital cable box


Darth,
There are 2 ways you can accomplish this.First is the least quality which is via coax.What you want to do is connect the cable service coming from the wall to the input on your cable box.Then the TV output on the cable box goes to the input on your surround sound then the coax goes from the surround sound to the coax input on the TV.The second is to Connect using the RCA AV1 input.what you want to do is look at the back of the digital cable box and locate the OUTPUTS for the RCA jacks(or AV output)connect RCA cables (yellow red white) to the 1st INPUT on your surround sound.depending on models you should have a couple of different INPUTS for a signal.Choose one and plug it in.After that take a second pair of RCA cables and connect them to video OUTPUT on the surround sound and connect them to your AV1 OUTPUT on your TV.With the original remote for your TV,NOT the cable universal one,Look for an INPUT button on the remote.Some are called input some are called SOURCE,TV/VIDEO basically it tells the TV what signal source to look at on the back of the TV.If you dont have the remote put the TV on channel 3 then press the channel down button and when the TV gets to channel 1 press it again and it should start cycling through the AV inputs,choose AV1.


Once you have done this you have correctly
hooked everything up,BUT Like I said depending on the model of surround sound you are going to have to CHOOSE or physically select or "tell" the surround sound receiver which input to RECEIVE the sound through.In general the INPUT on the back of the surround sound will be labeled with something like Video IN,VCR IN, DVD IN and so forth.Make sure the surround sound is selected to Receive the sound coming from the digital box.Sometimes there is a dial on the front of the surround sound that allows you to select which INPUT on on the back becomes active .make sure that what you have selected matches what you have your cable box is connected to.Hope this helps!
