Hi there ! Sure, it's possible to connect such speakers on a tv. Usually, you're gonna have an RCA (white + red) audio outputs on the back of the tv in the A/V connections. That's the one you want to use ! That connection may, or may not be variable, and usually has a configurable behavior through the TV's menu, in the audio submenu. You wanna look for 'Audio Out' or similar. The speakers probably have a 1/8 of an inch mini stereo connection, which is meant to be connected on a PC sound card. You only need a RCA to 1/8 Mini Stereo adapter, which can be found at a dollar store, radio shack, best buy or any electronics store you got close for 2-5$. Hope that helps ! cheebster.

Really this is a question of sources. The reason your able to hear surround sound when connected to your DVD player is that is what is providing your audio and video source. When your watching television it would depend on how your getting your broadcasts. If you are either receiving an over-the-air broadcast or cable directly to your set, your television becomes the source. As your television is providing the signal, you would need it to loop back to your receiver to provide that surround sound.
Now for the good news, if you have a cable or satellite box these should have outputs to connect to your receiver to provide the audio source.
Also keep in mind not all broadcasts provide a version of surround sound. Most newer home theater systems will replicate surround sound artificially.
I hope this helps.
Go Ahead. Use Us.

I'm fairly sure this is a power supply problem; less likely, a shorted power output stage which may be a largish integrated circuit; this last one would probably be costly to replace.
A failed diode or filter capacitor in the supply can cause this by either (the diode) allowing unrectified AC to pass or (the capacitor) poor DC filtering of the rectified AC. Neither of these parts is expensive.
Diodes can be in a variety of different packages so giving guidance on these is tough. Capacitors of the type likely used as the main filters in your power supply will be cylindrical objects between 1/2" (12-13mm) to 1 1/2" (~37mm) in diameter and between 1/2" to 3" (~75mm) tall. Caps are in aluminum cases with shrink wrap that will have values given in microfarads (µF) and VDC (Volts DC). Often, when they fail, the exposed tops will bulge visibly as a sign of their failure and sometimes they will leak from the bottom rubber seal and there will be traces of a white deposit on the board around them. If you see such signs, replace them.
Checking power supply diodes could be done with any multimeter but unless the electrolytic capacitor(s) fails catastrophically as above, the main filter caps would need to be verified for value and losses with a capacitance meter which is too expensive to buy for home use. A plain-jane digital multimeter can cost <$20 US and would be useful for many other tests around your home and car as well.

Hi, I guess that's just a problem that can't be solved by yourself, you'll probably have to bring it back.
I have thesame speakerset, but I don't know how you can remove that thing where the ipod stands in. That plastic thing that comes in a lot of different sizes. I hope that you can help me with removing it and putting an other one in.

If you have checked the fuses which it sounds like you have, your amp may be out. Take that RCA and plug it into the other speaker. If thar she blows, treat as warranty and call the factory. If this is helpful, please post as such.
