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.

SOURCE: have an existing ts-1100 home theatre infinity speakers

You cannot use this system with one that does not have a Subwoofer or LFE (Low Frequency Effect) output. Unfortunately, this sub doesn't have a line-level (speaker wire) input. Sorry.

SOURCE: Wireless digital transmitter doesn't work

I'm having this same problem; it worked all ok in the beginning then one day it didn't and no matter what I try it doesn't seem to connect. Similarly im getting the W1 flashing and even when I take the receiver and move it closer (even within a few feet) it still wont pick it up. I've removed the wireless home phone and baby monitor from within the room without any result. I cannot think of anything else that could be interfering. Any advice or resolution would be much appreciated.

I have had my Bose Cinemate for a few years, and had it hooked up to a Sony Wega tv with no issues. I just purchased an Insignia tv, trying to upgrade the size of my tv. The problem is, I cannot see that...

The TV probably has a lot of video 'inputs' but very few 'outputs' (outlets??). It's main output is to light the room with moving pictures.

So the unidentified Insignia TV may be a Monitor (no speakers). TV's and Monitors only NEED sources of video. Hi-fi sound systems can (and should) handle all audio duties as that is their specialty.

WHY would anyone NEED audio FROM a TV if the programming for it originates elsewhere like a Cable Box/DVD/SAT which probably has a digital sound output (much better than some old red/white analog stereo-only audio)?

The Panasonic TV I have only has a digital audio out. How do I make it work with the cinemate plug system?

Whatever componenets you have, satellite receiver, DVD Bluray, etc. should be hooked to tv for both audio and video, referrably by HDMI, then you can hook you digital optical out from tv to digital in on your Bose system. If you have component in to tv you can use that to but, you will ahve to provide audio tp tv through Ditgital in or composite cables(red, white, RCA)

I need to hook up the tv to the home theater system to be able to hear it from the tv.I have a red and white plug in in the tv,on the home theater system,there is red white and yellow,what do i need to do?

You don't mention the models so generic advice is all I can give.

The red/white/yellow on the HTS are for Right/Left/Composite Video, respectively.

The red/white on the TV are for Right/Left audio. You don't mention if they're IN or Out. If they're Out jusy jack them into the Red/White on the HTS.

As TV's are not reputed to be great audio sources, you would get better audio if you sourced TV-relaed audio from wherever the TV is getting it, like the DVD, Cable Box, Blu Ray. If your HTS accepts digital audio in, all the better as THAT is the only way you'll get multichannel audio from an external source.

Hpe this helps.

Philips dvd home theather,i didn't get a users manual,i can't get the sound to come out with the tv,it will owrk with the radio. lloyd

I will guide you through it.

Just to clarify, When you say sound out with the tv, which are you referring to:
1. DVD built into to the theatre
2. Pay TV
3. Analogue TV ( or digital TV with inbuilt set top box)
4.Digital TV with a separate set top box
Please indicate which one.

TV: ther should be several set of three RCA Sockets on the back of the tv. Look for the red, whit and yellow Phono sockets. do you have these colours and are any of them labelled TV Out or output?

Philips System: Look for an analogue in, Aux IN, or any other unused RCA (Phono) Sockets ( They MUST be red or white!)
Take a set of red and white RCA leads plug them into the OUT set on the TV, and The "INput" set on the Home theatre, select that input on the theatre and your off and racing!
Please clarify first though!

Cant wire theatre system right,only get surr. on dvd

Do you have a High Def cable box and Tv? if so you would use and HDMI cable from your cable box to your tv, then run an optical audio or coax audio from your cable box to your surrond system. Depends on which plug you have on both for the audio portion.If you dont have HD tv than you would run cable wire from cable box to tv then run red and white audio from cable box to surround system, to listen to it you would select aux channel.

Hope this Helps.

Surround sound

your tv might have aux out on the back, I would use that first.
IF NOT, then you will need to use the cable box.  Insert the red and white plugs at the other end of  this cable into the AUDIO IN TV or cable box connectors on the 
media center. 
Be sure to match red to red and white to white. 
3. Use your TV remote control to turn the TV speakers 
down to minimum volume. 
This prevents the echo effect of audio playing 
through both the TV speakers and your 3•2•1® 
system speakers.
