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!

Connect mediacom cable to my apex...all the cables are hooked up correctly but it just says no signal.

What is the mediacom connected to? If the antenna connector, (usually screw-on type F) then set it to TV. Does Mediacom need to have a box between the cable and the TV? Sometimes cable systems do not use standard television signals, and a box is required to display on a TV.
If mediacom has a box, and cables are connected to (commonly red, white, and yellow) RCA connectors, then AV 1 or 2, depending on which connectors you plugged them into on the TV.

AV1 red, white and yellow cable ports not working. I use digital satellite service for my television through a box from my provider which only uses the AV1 port? I checked all the wires which were working...

Your post is a little confused (or I am!), why would a digital box only provide a low resolution output which is what the composite standard is - yellow video composite red/white=stereo audio.
You also say that you checked the wires, so you've seen the picture and heard the audio on AV2? So why not use AV2? There is no reason to use AV1 other than you may be using the other inputs for other equipment.
Check that the output from the cable box really is composite and not component, and if it really is composite check the AV colour system in the TV menu is set to Auto (or NTSC if you are in USA, PAL in Europe)
I think you (or I) may have misunderstood how to connect it, can you have a look at your cable box and see what the output sockets are labelled and report back/clarify also detail what your cable equipment is please?

I hook everything up to the tv for the nintendo 64, but I still have no picture on the tv or audio. Help!

make sure your cords are in properly. You may have to get a new set of cords from ebay or your local electronics store. Also NOTE: Most TV's have AV1, AV2, Component, then Cable. AV1 and AV2 are both ports(usually on the sides and back), thatyou plug the audio and video into. Make sure both of these have no video or audio before you go out to purchase new cords.

Hope this helps!

DVD is hook up and no picture on the TV.

You have to make sure that the RCA cables are properly connected to the TV. Check the TV/Mode if it's set to AV1 (Audio/Video1) or AV2. You may check the TV remote to set it to AV1 or AV2.

From the DVD, the cable should be connected to OUT. And on the and audio should be connected to IN.

Have a Sanyo DP42828(42"). My Satellite is working after the card resetting itself. But which 3 holes do I hook the (RED, YELLOW, and WHITE) for the dvd player?


Are you reffering to your DVD player to be conected to with your TV screen?

For DVD player connection the 3 colored RCA jack socket are:

YELLOW = video out
RED and WHITE = Audio out (left and right channels)

to hook up to your screen, at the back of the screen or side of it you'll see RCA socket indicating "AV1" "AV2" AV3" this are all Audio/video inputs where you can hook up all you A/V device or game consoles. These inputs also have the same 3 colored socket (yello = video red/white = audio)
connect your DVD player to any of this input following the same color code.After connecting the cable, select the input where you hook up your dvd player. Do this by pressing "A/V" buttons in remote commander of your TV. continously press this button until it reaches the exact location where you plug your player ex. AV1, AV2,AV3

note: in some cases the remote commander doesn't indicate this A/V button but a picture of a box having a arrow pointing inside the box.

If cable is hooked through cable box with a coaxial cable, then turn tv to ch 3 or ch 4 as appropriate.

If cable is hooked through any other type of cord (red/green/blue or red/white/yellow) use the AV+ or Source button to change your source to Av1, AV2, HDMI, or however you have the cable box hooked to TV (I am assuming your TV is a Philips).

Brad, AV-1 INPUT, be advised this will use up the AV1 port so if you have another item that uses regular AV cables you`ll then have to use AV2 for the video in and L&R audio in, enjoy, BMW Rider
