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.

Salutations ddog,

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.

SOURCE: humming noise follow up

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.

How do I connect to TV using analogue cable ?


Some TVs have headphone output. It is 6.3mm jack or 3.5mm jack. Often located on the back of the TV if it is a LED ord LCD TV.
You probably need an audio cable that has jack in one end and two RCA konnectors in the other.

If it isn't sound you're looking for, but picture, and your TV only have SCART or component image input, you need equipment with SCART output or component output. Some SCART plugs do have separated audio and component outputs.

How do I connect ILive ITO82B Sound Bar to an LG TV?


This will depend on what inputs your sound bar has and what outputs your LG TV has, typically LG have Optical DIgital Audio (Sony TOSLINK), Headphone (Analog stereo), And HDMI reverse audio from HDMI 1 only. On some LG TV's you have to turn the external sound on, and on others it is auto detected, also make sure the TV speakers are off, or you can get weird phasing from 2 outputs (TV + Soundbar).

How to connect soundbar to a TV with a skybox


Connect the soundbar either to the TV's optical output. Or use an Optical to stereo phono/RCA converter box and then a pair of stereo phono cables (red & white) to the soundbar.

If it's a very basic soundbar with just a headphone jack input then you can go from the TV's headphone output instead.

As for the Sky box, just leave it connected via either an AV lead or better still a HDMI cable direct to the TV. The TV will send sound out to the soundbar.

Want to hook up a philips sound bar to my t.v. what cable do I need and where do I plug in at


Which model TV and which model sound bar do you have? Some Sansui TVs have a coaxial digital audio port and a 3.5 mm headphone port; this is true for the SLED2480. Some of the smallest Sansui TVs may only have a headphone out option or no audio output. These jacks will be on the back or the side depending on the model. For some Sansui models, these will be easiest to see when you put the TV on its face (on a clean soft surface) and look next to the base of the TV.

The Philips CSS2123B/F7 has a digital coaxial port, a digital optical port and RCA analog inputs on the back of the unit. It also has a 3.5 mm input on the right side for connection with auxiliary devices (like a headphone out). Other models may have different ports.

Thus the cables you need will depend on the specifics of your devices; similarly the locations of the ports will depend on the models. If your TV only has a headphone out and the soundbar has analog audio inputs, you will probably want a 3.5 mm to RCA audio adapter. There are several options depending on whether you want to use an 3.5 mm audio cable or an RCA audio between the TV and the soundbar. (Pick a cable and then get the adapter to plug into either the TV (M 3.5 mm to RCA FF) or the soundbar (2 RCA MM to 3.5 mm F).) There are 3.5 mm M to RCA MM cables as well.

If your TV has an digital audio outputs, get the correct cable (optical or coaxial) and connect that to the port on the sound bar and TV.

Please add a comment with the model of your TV and soundbar for specific information. I hope this helps.

What type of audio connection is needed to connect headphones to the Sony Bravia, model KDL-40S5100


The problem wiht this TV is that it does not have headphone output jack (spec: http://www.reviewed.com/product/Sony/Bravia-KDL-40S5100/specs.htm)

You will have to use:
1) AUDIO line out jacks (RCA RED and WHITE JACKS) of the TV connected to small headphone amplifier to drive your headphone.
2) you will have to trun off the TV built-in speakers using on screen audio set up.
3) Set the TV audio line out to be VARIABLE instead of FIXED level if you want to use the remote control to control the level of the audio output feeding the headphone amplifier.

As you can see, it is real simple setup.

Example of headphone amp;

Same one at AMAZON: http://www.amazon.com/Upbeat-Audio-T613-BNC-Boostaroo-Application/dp/B000EIWCFE/ref=pd_sxp_grid_pt_1_0

Notes: you will need RCA plugs to mini-stereo phone jack adapter since this unit does not have RCA INPUT JACKS.

How do i hook external speakers to sony bravia television


The proper way to do this would be to use the audio output from the TV, either analogue left and right or the optical port, and send it into an dedicated amplifier or AV receiver. You can then use the amplifier or receiver to power the external speakers. If you are using a dedicated amplifier with no volume control you will want to change the audio output setting on the TV to "variable out" as oppose to its current "fixed out"settings. You can find this in the TV menu, usually under the audio settings. This will allow you to use the current TV remote to adjust the audio volume coming out of the external speakers.

Sony DVP-NS77H No outout


I had the same problem unitl I read the manual a little more carefully.

I found that ALL connections through my AV receiver had to be identical. I was using component connections with analog connections.

Since I switched to all HDMI connections (cable box to AV receiver, DVD to AV receiver and AV receiver to TV) all is fine.

Hope this helps.
