Question about Toshiba 36HF71 36" TV

1 Answer

Sound output to a sound bar

I cannot get sound from my DirecTV to the soundbar. It is connected through the back of the TV. I also have a Wii connected and I get sound from Neflix through it just find. But nothing from DirecTV. I just disconnected an old JVC surround receiver and DirecTV worked well through that. Is there a setting to get sound out of the sound output jacks on the back of the TV?

SOURCE: Toshiba CN36X81 television.. NO Sound...

IF coming in via, the "Dish" networked receiver, please check that this volume is turned way up, on the TV. and then control the the Volume, with the Dish Remote, often this is a problem, as one is turned down, and the other cannot turn that up, simply try syncing the Volume controls, UP on TV, control the Audio with dish remote. thats all i can think of. Check by feeding a signal IN from an AV, source, ie: Yellow, Video, & Red& White, Audio. Turn TV UP and check, IF it responds to this all is well. If NOT then you do indeed have a fault, with the TV.

Having problems connecting using RCA cables (TV to Sound Bar) - No sound on Sound Bar


I assume by using your phone (cable rca to mini jack) the sounbar functions normal. Next time give more info like tv and soundbar make and model no and what connections are available on both components and if its input or output connections.

On the tv make sure the rca cable (tv to soundbar) is plug into the stereo output of the tv and not in a av input. Some tv's have a mini jack out and not rca. Some have a earphone socket which could also be used.

Some tv's only have a digital or optical output port. Iin basic sound work and can be connected with the following combinations .

Minijack to minijack
Minijack to rca
rca to rca
digital to digital
optical to optical

How dd I connect my soundbar to my TV using the red and white RCA plugs


Hello. On the back of your TV look for RCA Audio jacks marked "Audio Out". Connect the cables from that to the RCA Audio Input on your sound bar. If your TV doesn't have the RCA outputs, see if it has an optical output. Your sound bar probably has an Optical Audio input. You would need to buy an optical cable for that.

Do i need to buy anything extra for my ilive 37' soundbar for my tv? The sound doesnt work with my tv, but the bluetooth works just fine.


You'll need some sort of audio cable to connect the TV's sound or audio output to the soundbar. For the most basic connection, use an RCA-style cable ( like the one found here: http://goo.gl/5F8yLh ) to connect your TV's audio output to the soundbar's input. Most soundbars also have an SPDIF input ( like the one found here: http://goo.gl/2F2rKs ) and most modern TV's have an SPDIF output. Get an SPDIF optical digital audio cable to connect the two devices together. Once you've decided which type of connection to use and have connected the TV's audio output the soundbar, then make sure you select the proper input on the soundbar. That should fix your problem.

Connecting a sound bar


Typically you will connect the RCA audio output jacks to the audio input jacks on the sound bar, but if your television does not have RCA audio output, you may have to buy additional hardware to make the soundbar work. If your TV has a headphone jack, then you will need to purchase an 1/8" Headphone connector to RCA Connector cable from a local electronics or audio store. If your TV doens't have any audio outputs, you may need to purchase a digital tuner box and connect it to your TV and soundbar.

Program directv remote to Maxell soundbar


Hi, you will need to access the operating manual for your directv remote. It will have codes in the remote. but most likely it will not work your soundbar as most Directv remotes do not have codes for them, and do not support them. You are stuck using the soundbar remote for your soundbar. The only option you can do is to purchase a learning remote from the store that can program to your directv box and your TV, and you can learn the volume keys to your Maxell sound bar.
