Question about Philips HTS3400/37B System

1 Answer

The color on my dvd is red. The TV color is fine.

When we attached our surround sound system, everything was fine except for the color of the DVD'S we put in. The color was always RED.

We used the Best attachments recommended by the store we purchased from. We even took the cables back and tried another set. NO USE..still red.

What do you think.

Thanks, Roy

Rca model rtd3266 won't produce aux audio through the tv even though we have hooked up the red and white cables. It only playes the surround sound when you watch the dvd.

I believe you have misunderstood something. The audio output from your TV is stereo. Your RCA system produces surround output from your TVs stereo input.

How do I hook up my surround sound system thru my stereo and tv

connecting your surround sound system is not complicated.things you may need:OLDER STEREO SURROUND SOUND:analog red, white, and yellow cable connectorsHDMIaudio fiber opticsif you bought your stuff new from electronics store,then it would be easier.all you need is HDMI cables (mostly)depending where your inputs and outputs go, you must know the rule. OUT-TO-IN. that means if you are using a cable box, dvd, bluray, playstation, or xbox. everything in these electronic devices are OUT. then connect them to the IN ports of your surround sound. at the back of your surround sound there will be connections saying IN-dvd, IN-dvr etc. connect your OUT DEVICES.
now from your surround sound to your tv.the same ruleout to in of your tv. You should look for HDMI port that is saying OUT. you will connect your HDMI cable from there connecting to your IN of your tv. remember which port you plugged the HDMI cable as you will switch to that particular input. it will say at the back of your tv in-1, in-2, in-3 or as much as the manufacturer want to have in there product.
connecting your must remember the color code.if you chose red as positive, all the red wire must be positive.colour may be different but same idea. if you have sub-woofer it will be an analog cable you will only use single cable. At the back of your surround sound there's a connection saying sub-woofer out.
now selecting your inputs.turn on your tv and stereo.newer tvs and stereos are smart they can configure there system which is turned on.
anyways if you will do it manually, you must select from the remote what is the connected input. (input 1, input 2 etc.) if you found the right input, do the players (dvr, cable box, dvd, bluray, playstation, xbox etc) turn them all on and select from your stereo remote control.note all the inputs you selected.

How to set up to my tv

Ok...sorry it took me so long to get back to you...Check the back of you tv and look for RCA jacks for audio and video out...There should be a yellow one for video..a white one for audio left(L) and a red one for audio righ(R) may not need the yellow look for any inputs on the rear panel of the surround sound system...They can be marked (AUX)...they will work..once all of these are will need an RCA patch cable long enough to reach from the tv to the surround sound receiver...once done...turn on the tv and the surround sound.With the remote from the surround sound remote...switch between the input sources..maybe (AUX) until you hear your tv sound come through...then you adjust the sound as needed...Assuming the DVD is built in to the surround sound system...your DVD sound will come back when you play DVD's...All connections and cables are color coded so you should have no problem connecting everything....Good luck....let me know how it goes,,,,I hope this was helpful....PEACE.....

Have lenoxx ht 500 surround sound speakers & dvd but dvd is broken, need to purchase another dvd player but can't source lenoxx model, what other models can i connect surround sound to? or whe

If your surround sound receiver unit has rca audio inputs(red/white), you can hook up any brand of DVD player that has rca outputs. You would hook the yellow output from DVD player to yellow input on TV. Hook red/white output from DVD player to red/white input on surround receiver. Hope this helps.

Hi, You have to make sure you are using the "audio out" from the dvd/surround into the "audio in" on your TV also in some case TVs will need to change the "input" with your remote to see where you connected your dvd/sur also some TVs have a switch for "n" or "off" for internal speakers and also you could have that option in your audio menu on your TV, Hope it help, good luck.

I can't get my coby DVD 937 to play sound while watching tv. It works fine while playing a DVD or CD????

there should be an input line of just audio cable hookups (one red and one white) that you have to run and an output cable from your tv audio output of just red and white. make sure the tv says output or line out and the surround sound system says input or line in

Proscan tv surround sound hook up

This depends on whether you have digital cable box or not. If you have a Digi Cable Box look for the red/white RCA output and connect this via RCA cable to the Red/White Audio input on your surround.

If just Basic Cable look for a red/white audio output on the back of your televison. connect this to the Red/white in on your surround. Could be called tv in or auxillary.

Three (3) possible ways:
1. use the audio out of the TV (if available) which would normally be red/white RCA and connect to any of the free INputs of your DVD surround sound system;
2. remove the cable INput of your TV and feed it to a tuner such as those in a VCR or any other device (some DVDs have TV tuners also). The VCR's Video OUTput would go to your TV while the Audio OUTput would go to any of the free INputs of your DVD surround sound system;
3. if your cable uses a box/decoder and has the yellow, red & white RCA, its a matter of splitting the red/white signal to feed both your TV and DVD surround sound system or simply remove them from the TV and feed them to the DVD surround sound system.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
