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!

Need to hook up LG tv to phillips cd/4 head hi fi and RCA surround sound


Hello!
Ok: I will guide yourself through "hook up" process.
1. connect your TV set to your VCR, using 3 wires RCA cable(Yellow, red, white) to "Video1" input, yellow only! The other 2(sound channels) connect to "home theater/DVD unit. Use "aux" input.
2. Connect your DVD video output. yellow or 3 colored( green, blue, red) component cables to your TV's Video 2 or "component 1" input.
Now you'll be able to use your TV as a video monitor for your VCR and DVD.
The sound will be handled by DVD/Home theater. In case your TV is a very modern, all you can get out is: direct digital sound stream. Your home theater must be equipped with coaxial(orange) input(looks like RCA plug) or optical input. Or both. You must use proper cables to connect TV to Home theater.
sorry, but it requires some patience and thorough reading of user manuals.
Otherwise, it's "level 1" difficulty. nothing you may damage, due to installation.
Good luck,
Feel free to ask for more help, if needed.
thanks,
Alex.

CABLE BOX HDDVR IT's NOT WORKING WITH HDM1 in put. I have to use av1 source with 3 wire cable. Comcast tech saying it is tv problem.


Hello,
I am not with Comcast, but rather a much smaller family owned cable company.
You can check the user settings of the box to verify it is in the HDMI mode. Depending on what type of HDDVR you have that is.

For Motorola 62XX and 64XX models follow these steps to check.

1. make sure that your HDMI cable is connected to both the TV and the cable box.
2. Turn TV on, and verify it is on the proper input.
3. Turn cable box off.
4. Press menu button on remote or front of cable box.
5. A user settings menu will appear on the screen.
Note: if it did not appear you may have to connect another type of cables to continue.
6. Information displayed should be set to what your TV set is capable of. Most HDTV's will be set to the following:
16:9
1080i
480i
7. If you see additional HDMI settings as the forth item your TV and cable box are communicating across it, if not try unplugging both the TV and cable box and/or replacing the HDMI cable. Enter the additional settings by pressing the right arrow on the remote.
8. Change DVI to HDMI.
9. Press power to exit the user settings menu.
10. Turn cable box on, and switch TV to HDMI input if not already on it and see if the picture is coming in now.

Note: if you think that you messed up in the user settings you can always restore default settings by following steps 1 through 4 then press up arrow once and right arrow once.

I hope this helps you cable customers, as we appreciate your business unlike Dish and Direct!

Cheers!

I have a 19 inch insigna trying to hook to cable box the cable box is functioning but there is no picture on the tv just static and a message on screen no sigal my cable box is motorola make and model MTRS...


You might have to change the tv's channel to 3 or 4.
Or perhaps the cable isn't routed corectly between the box and the tv. Should be from the back of the box something labeled ANTENNA OUT, VIDEO OUT, RF OUT, CABLE OUT, something OUT..
Some tv's have a place for standard cable tv as well as a digital tv tuner input.
if your cable box has RCA video outputs as well, then you may have to change some settings in the cable box to ensure the video is being ported out of the place you want. IE coax or rca.

Will play dvds with sound fine...but no sound from tv


You have to connect extra red & white audio cable from your TV's (or cable box, if you have one) AUDIO OUT to the Home Theater's AUX IN 2 at the back (below Video In). Set the HTS unit to AUX 2 using the AUX button on the remote control and you should be able to get sound.

Sony surround sound hookup


In short, the answer is: Hook up all three to each other. I have a Samsung DLP HDTV, and I was trying to hook up a Sony DAV-HDX500 home-theater system and a Comcast HD set-top box, but I found that the Sony user guide is helpful only for setting up the speakers. Most of what it had to say about HDMI and getting the TV sound or cable sound to go through the speaker system was wrong (or, at least, it didn't work for me). So, here's what I did. I connected Component video cables (Y/Pb/Pr out) from the Cable box to the TV (Y/Pb/Pr in), audio cables from the Cable box (audio out) to the Sony system ("SAT/Cable" audio in), and an HDMI cable from the Sony system (HDMI out) to the TV (HDMI in). This allows me to 1) watch DVDs with surround sound through the TV's HDMI source (when the "DVD" format is selected on the Sony system), 2) watch cable with surround sound through the TV's Component source (when the "SAT/Cable" format is selected on the Sony system), and 3) watch cable WITHOUT the surround sound, as I did before I ever had the Sony system. One item of note: When watching a non-HD channel with the surrond sound on, the audio is slightly out of synch with the video; thankfully, there's no such problem on HD channels. Anyway, I hope this helps. It drove me crazy for two days straight!
