Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

I have a 58 inch led sanyo tv, and I'm trying to hook up a home theater to it. The tv doesn't have HDMI-arc so I went to go get an optical digital cable. Turns out my tv doesn't have an optical either. What do I need to do to listen to my tv through my speakers? My home theater has all tyoes of ports on the back while my tv has 3 HDMI's, antenna, red-white-and-yellow, USB, and it also has a digital audio output.

The only audio out jack on your TV is for the headphone on the left side of the TV. You need to purchase a 3.5 mm to RCA audio cable, connect the 3.5mm jack to the left side of your TV and the 2 RCA audio cable ends to the audio in of your Home Theater and then select AUX 1 or AUX 2 on the home theater depending on which jacks you plugged into.

I have a Dynex L4210A and was wondering is there a converter to plug into an HDMI port on the TV to make it an HDMI ARC?


Included is a link that may confirm what you already know, but it confirms the two way connection of ARC.

HDMI ARC is not available from the Dynex

The only best choice for is the optical connection to the sound system from the TV. Optical is digital and will contain in the data transfer the audio format. Make sure in the TV settings that the preferred format is set.

There are adapters but anything RCA type connectors will only downgrade the audio quality.

Why doesn't the ARC TV sound work through the HDMI cable? Is it because the KDL-52XBR7 only has the Bravia Sync and no ARC support?


Not all Hdmi cables have same capabilities. Check out:

I have a question, I have an rca home theater and it has optical that is hooked up the sound is freckin great... I also have netgear neotv that wont play through the surround sound Ive tried everything...


I really don't understand your issue. Maybe you can try to restate exactly what your issue is. I can tell you that the red and white rca leads are analog audio, not digital. Make sure the input you are using for those red and white leads, is selected to analog, not digital.

I wanted to know if there is a way to hook up the sound from a Panasonic DMP-BD655P-K Blu-Ray player to my existing Yamaha DVX C310SW home theater system. I know I can hook the Blu Ray directly to the TV...


Yes this can be done. You have several options for audio hookup. Stereo 2-channel (white and red) RCA cables, digital audio (optical or coaxial) or HDMI. Your home theater must have the inputs available such as optical, coaxial etc. Typically the stereo 2-channel RCA is the simple way. Just connect from the Bluray audio outputs to the Home theater inputs (white and red) for stereo sound. Select the input on the home theater. For Dolby Digital 5.1 use optical digital audio cable (black port) or coaxial (orange RCA port) from Bluray to similar home theater input.

Hooking up a sony playstation 3 with digital optical cable


Here's one solution, if you have an audio output from your tv, you can go from the audio output on your tv to the audio input on your receiver that way anything that is playing on your tv for example, playstation 3, dvd player etc. Anything playing on your tv will have audio on your onkyo home theater system. The other thing I would try if you want to hook ps3 directly to receiver is go to your connection settings on your ps3 menu and change your connection method to digital optical cable.
