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.

I have a Sony DVD-SLV-271P to hook up to a Samsung TV. I have five wires coming out of the DVD player and need help

yellow is video, red is speaker, white is speaker, you should only have to hook up the three to the back of TV.

I was trying to hook up durabrand 5.1 100w home theater system. I have all the speaker hook up and stuff but i can't get a picture to come up it does have sound. I am trying to hook up to digital box...

make sure the yellow rca cord is plugged into video on both home theater and cable box, if this is not helping, then at the back of the dvd player is a channel button that has a 3 and 4 setting. choose one then turn your tv channel(not your digital box) to that same setting as well

Sound Problems?!

If you have just basic cable with no box, your tv must have audio out. If you do have a box then you can come out of it. Digital coax or optical would be better for the dvd if it has it.

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.

Hooking up system

You have a green orange and black connection, hook those to the subwoofer, on the other end of each of those connections is a split connection which splits to a Red/White cable that is provided, correspond the red/white to your dvd unit as such (Front Left, Front Right, Surround Right, Center and Sub), if your dvd player only has a 1 white/red port then you will only be able to use the 2 chanels, so just 1 split will be required.

No DVD picture while playing Panasonic SC-HT920

You should connect your Video cable from DVD to TV's Yellow pin. Then you must first select whether its AV1 or AV2 from remote control. Then you'r done!
