SOURCE: I am trying to connect

On the rear of the receiver you will notice several AUDIO IN connections. Make sure that the AUDIO IN and the receiver's input selector match (for example, if you are connected to AUDIO IN for the VCR section, the input selector on the FRONT of the receiver should also be VCR). Also, make sure that the input selector you are using is set to "Digital Audio" or a digital audio enabled equivalent and NOT analog. Check all connections again to make sure you have not grounded any speaker wire. Check to see if "MUTE" is on TV or Receiver. Try another audio in source just to make sure the speakers are connected properly. If that works, you can pretty much decide that it's either the input selection is wrong or the audio source is not set to digital 9also check to see if PCM is enabled and try setting to "AUTO" if you have that function. If you have option on receiver for speakers A and B, make sure selection matches your wiring.

SOURCE: hooking up Coby Csp-94 Speaker to HDTV "no directions"

The green, black and beige cable is non-standard and proprietary meaning that Coby has defined their purpose which hopefully is described in your user guide. It would be worth a few dollars to buy the properly color-coded cables to uncomplicate your setup. Buy cables (or cable sets) that have the same color coding as your TV jacks along with the cable suggested below.
There are several ways to connect to an HDTV system and these are normally standard as previously described.
The red and white are for right and left channels and it isn't uncommon to see a three cnductor cable with one not connected since one of the methods of connection is to supply audio via two cables, video (composite) via a 3rd which is plugged into a corresponding jack, normally colored yellow. Audio cables aren't really required to carry the mix of much higher frequencies of composite video.
If you have the following connectors, try this:
- S-Video (this does not contain any audio information and requires an S-Video cable) - Right (red) and left (white) audio paths.    The S-Video connection provides a better signal that gives you a noticeably sharper picture. This setup is selected from the TV's input source menu.

Trying to get my ps3, Emerson hd tv and coby DVD938 home theater all to work together

The DVD938 only has analog audio input (2.1 channel), thats why you have only a white (left channel) and red (right channel) audio connection from your ps3 to the home theatre. There is an option called PROLOGIC in the setup menu that will simulate 5.1 with the 2.1, it basically takes the 2.1 channels and splits it into all the speakers.

Hi, I am having trouble hooking up my new LG home theatre system with my Rogers cable. I connected the home theatre system to the TV with an HDMI cable. The sound works with watching DVDs on TV and...

To listen to Tv program sound through your home theater system you will have to connect a pair of RCA to RCA cables (Red and White pair ) from the audio out socket of the TV ( some times three sockets Yellow/Red/White labeled Monitor out. Ignore the yellow as it is video out ) to the Aux or CBL/Sat input of the LG system. Then to listen to the sound through your LG HT system switch the Input selector of the LG to Aux or CBL/SAT. Will work for sure.

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.

The tv is a Sansui HDLCD1909A I can't find a

The only audio output on the HDLCD1908 and 1909 series of Sansui tv's is the coaxial audio out jack. It only works when the tv is tuned to a digital station on the tv's internal tuner. If this won't work for you try getting your audio from your cable or sat box, etc. I hope this helps you.

Hooking up audio video to cable box with home theatre

From Cable Box to Input on DVD Player, from DVD Player Out, to TV in, from TV Audio Out to Home Theater Audio In.

That should work.

Will have to have the VCR on to watch cable. Plus make sure that you use A/V cables as much as possible. Coax works ok, but not as good as R/W/Y.

Problem getting home theatre sytem to play audio when watching tv

you need the red and white audio cable hooked into the AUDIO OUT connectors on the tv and the other end of the red and white cables into the AUDIO IN in tv to the media center (main Bose unit).....If your tv does not provide AUDIO OUT connectors, you cannot connect the tv audio to the 3-2-1 system. Continue using your tv speakers for sound.

Make sure the TV is set to output audio to the digital optical port. Then make sure you have selected the proper output mode on the home theatre. Unplug the optical cable from the back of the home theatre and see if the red laser is on (don't shine it in your eyes! :))

No sound from plasma to home theatre

First off it's always best to start from scratch when it comes to home audio. LoL. Many times I've been in this situation.
So with everything disconnected. You should have your HDMI, COMPONENT, RCA(R,W,Y)
HDMI and COMPONENT are the exact same thing and in all preference COMPONENT is far better thand HDMI for the pure fact that each wire is in it's own casing and insualted to avoid feedback from the other wires.
Anyways, with everything disconnected we begin
From you Cable/satellite box- Run your HDMI cable from you cable box to your HDMI 1 input on your tv.(If your speakers were to work on your tv you would automaticaly get sound and picture)
That should be all that you should be running from you cable box. Now that we have one thing running we go to the next thing.
From your TV run your audio out (RCA Red/White) to your amp. Usually your preference but more than likely your TV IN on your amp.
With your amp now set on TV, you should automatically get sound from your tv. and if your running an HD cable box even though your only running RED/WHITE to your amp, you will still be receiving Digital sound.
Most new amps Should have a digital input and if your running and 1080iUp this one RCA plugin will give you dolby digital sound from your dvd player to your amp. Then running a video rca up to your tv, will give you the picture, while the digital out on your dvd player to your amp will give you dolby digital sound.

It's a basic simple step to get sound. Like a continuing current. So just as long as you have your cable to -- tv -- home theatre. Everything should work. Otherwise I would go and check your cables and make sure they are not faulty.
I hope this confusing walkthrough helps.
