There is only one set of out jacks, the rest are in and they are usually right next to the in jacks. You are looking for a set of red and white colored plugs, some have a yellow with that would make three next to each other. The sound bar will work whenever the power is on then all you do is turn down the sound on the tv.

You can try unplugging the tv and wait for a couple minutes and then plug it back in... I just did this and now the television works again.

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

Just purchased a Goodman 50 w sound bar connected to AUX on tv and sound bar clicked AUX on remote white light shows no sound just a loud buzz


To the best of my understanding an Aux port is usually an input port. So you might be sticking the sound bar terminals into the wrong connector in TV. The audio signal from the TV is meant to go into the Aux In port of the sound bar. Usually this will mean a pair of RCA cables (white and red) from TV out to Aux In. If you have done the right things then maybe check if soundbar is not in mute. Try some other source as well. Like connecting an iPhone or ipod stereo out to the Line In port in soundbar and selecting LineIn mode.
see page 7 in the soundbar manual. It is hard to know what TV connection you are using. Is it selected on the TV settings? http://www.goodmans.co.uk/support/downloads/user-guides/GDSB02BT20-ib.pdf

Why? no sound from the speskers at all.


There are a few things that could cause no sound and although some are obvious I'll got through them all..

1) Sound is on Minimum

2) Sound is Muted

3) No Power to Subwoofer

4) Speakers connected Incorrectly or Faulty

5) No AUDIO IN connections to TV-IN or AUX-IN

6) Incorrect Input Source is Selected (See Below)


Connecting audio from TV

When connecting the audio output from your TV to this Home Theater Audio System, you will have the sound of the

TV output on all the speakers. It will enable you to enjoy the multi-channel surround sound capabilities.


Use an audio cable (red/white - not supplied) to connect the TV IN jacks on this DVD system to the AUDIO OUT

jacks on the TV. To listen to the sound, press TV on the remote control as the sound source that you want to play.

How do I hook up my ipod to my pioneer vsx d409 ?


The best way is to use a 3,5mm stereo jack to 2 RCA cable like this:
technical114_34.jpg
You can easily find one like this at your local audio/electronics shop or buy one on line. You have to connect the RCA at any free stereo input at the back of your Pioneer (like aux or cd). Take a look at this picture:
technical114_35.jpg
After this you can use the 3.5mm stereo jack for connecting not only your ipod but every mp3 player or other device has an earphone jack. Just plug the 3.5mm jack at the earphone jack and rise the volume at the portable device up to the middle of the volume range and set your Pioneer input selector at the stereo input that you connect the 2 RCA before (aux or cd)

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

How do you get sound to come from tv out of speakers of home theatre system


It just depends on the tv you have. If you hook up the RCA jacks to the (Audio out) of the TV into one of the (AUX in) ports of the home Theatre system you should be able to geet the sound that comes from the TV to play out the theatre system. If you are watching through a cable box you will need to hook the RCA cables to the cable box (Audio out) too the theatre systems (AUX in), in insted.

I would like to plug in the sound of my television set to the panasonic SC-PM08. I tryed to do that by plugging in the tulip plugs in the "aux" connections, but no sound comes out. what could be the...


You mention "tulip plugs"! are you referring to your RCA jacks in the back of your unit? That is what the 7 inputs are to the right of your speaker connections.
When you hook your "stereo TV" to your external sound unit
you need to run your cables to your aux input from your audio out jacks on the back of the TV. Once this is done you need to configure your TV and your sound unit to work with each other. You need to go into your TV settings and tell it where to send the audio to. If you hooked into the front audio output then you need to pick that selection. If you hooked into the back audio out you need to pick that selection. Once you have completed that you need to tell your sound unit where to pick the sound up at. If you plugged into the aux then put your sound unit on aux. If you have more than 1 aux pay attention to what aux your TV is coming in on and set your sound unit accordingly.

I have a cable box...(hddvr) and a TV cable set it up on video 2 now i bought a insigna home sound, how do i hook it up the user guide only shows me how to hook it directly to TV and its not working, so...


First, if you have the jacks in back of your TV for audio out, you may have to set the audio on the TV for external audio. Go to menu and then click on audio or audio options, and see if there is a mode for external or aux audio out.If that does not work, then use cables with the RCA ends and hook up from cable box to audio in or aux in of your surround sound system. Look at the back of the cable box for audio out or aux audio output and connect these two jacks to the audio in or aux input of your surround system.
If the cable box does not have extra audio out, you can take Y connectors and branch off the two jacks that are going to your TV. Radio Shack has these Y connectors. They allow two cables to be connected to one jack.
Hope this helps, if so Please rate, and Good Luck!

Wiring with a sattelite receiver and new Samsung TV


Nope RamaTheMan - you are incorrect! No way to get an actual surroundsound from your TV on this turd - this came straight from the Samsung FAQ -

"You cannot get surround sound from your television. On the other hand, if your television has audio output jacks you can connect your TV or Set Top Box to your Home Theater System and get stereo sound (that is, sound from the left and right speakers of your Home Theater System only).
To connect your TV or STB audio output jacks to your Home Theater System and get stereo sound, follow these steps:
  1. Turn off your TV and Home Theater System.
  2. Connect the Audio Out jacks on your TV to the External Audio Input jacks on the back of your Home Theater System. The External Audio Input connectors are typically labeled AUX IN. Note: There are usually two pairs of Audio Input jacks, AUX 1 and AUX 2. Each pair has a jack for the left audio input and the right audio input. Often, there are two Video AUX IN jacks as well. You can plug the audio cables into either audio AUX 1 or AUX 2. See the following diagram.
    auxin.jpg
  1. Turn on your TV and Home Theater System.
  2. Press the Function Button on the front panel of your Home Theater System until the display on your Home Theater System shows AUX 1 or AUX 2.
For advanced installation, if you are using a High Def STB, you can connect an OPTICAL connection from the STB to the HTS. This is a specified cable that must be purchased separately.
In either instance, you must then set the HTS to its auxiliary input. (i.e AUX 1, AUX 2, DIGITAL IN) in order to get the sound from the HTS.
Note: If your television does not have Audio Out jacks, you may be able to get stereo sound by attaching the Audio Out jacks on your VCR to either the AUX 1 or AUX 2 audio inputs on your Home Theater System. If you attach your VCR to AUX 1 or AUX 2, you will have to tune your television to channel 3 or 4, and then tune to the station you want to watch on your VCR."
