Hi how do I get surround sound coming from my tv

A Samsung home theatre system can make watching movies at home like going to the theater. Proper setup is essential to get the full benefit of the Samsung system, which is available in 5.1 and 7.1 channel surround sound configurations.
Typically the final step in setting up any home theater is connecting your TV to your system.
Like most home theatre systems, your Samsung home theater receiver will allow you to plug all of your components into it, meaning you only have to run a few cables to connect your television to your system.
Make sure your playback devices are properly connected to your receiver.
Whatever playback devices you use, make sure they are plugged into the appropriate inputs on your receiver.
DVD and Blu-ray players, satellite boxes and cable boxes should all be plugged into video inputs, and CD players should be plugged into audio inputs.
Your receiver will have labels on the back panel indicating into which input you should plug your devices.

Connect the video out to your TV's video input. Make sure you use the correct cable to make the connection. For newer receivers, the connection will likely be either HDMI or component.
If your receiver has an HDMI output, use an HDMI cable to connect the receiver to the HDMI input on your TV.
If your receiver uses a component output, use a component cable to connect your receiver to the component input on your TV.

Connect the audio output of your TV to one of the audio inputs on your Samsung receiver if you want to output your television's audio through your home theatre system.
Most recent TVs will either use an optical cable or a digital coaxial cable to connect to the receiver, allowing you 5.1 channel surround from your television.
If you have an older set, you will likely have to use standard RCA cables.

Turn on your receiver and press the "Setup/Menu" button on your receiver's remote.
When "Input" appears on the display, press the right arrow key on your remote to select TV from the list.

After selecting TV, press the up or down arrow keys on your remote to select the audio input jack into which you have plugged your TV's audio cable.
Press the "Exit" button on your remote to exit the setup menu and lock in the settings.

If you're not an electronics junkie, hooking up your surround sound can seem daunting.
There are so many wires and settings that it's understandable why some people might rather pay someone else to do it for them.
But you can do it yourself as long as you make sure the speakers are positioned correctly; the wires are not only plugged in all the way, but plugged into the right places; and the settings on your television and amplifier are set up correctly.

Check to make sure your surround-sound speakers are correctly installed.
Locate the test function on your surround-sound remote control or amplifier panel to do this.
You will know your speakers are hooked up if sound comes out of each speaker during the test.
Make sure your audio cables are hooked up properly.
Make sure the audio cables running from your television to your amplifier are plugged in correctly. The red and white wires should be plugged into the "Audio Out" spot on the back of your television.
Those same red and white audio wires should be plugged into one of the "Audio Input" spaces on the back of your amplifier.

Turn on your television.
Locate the "Menu" button on either your television remote or your television set.
Scroll through your options until you find "Audio Mode" or a similar naming convention.
Select it.
Scroll through your options until you find "Digital Audio Out," or a similar naming convention. Choose it.
Scroll through your options until you find "Dolby Digital Out." Select that option.
Power your surround-sound system on.
Make sure you have the correct audio input selected.
After the correct audio input is selected, make sure you actually have the Dolby Digital aspect of your surround sound system turned on.
The default for most surround-sound systems is the standard two-channel, stereo output.

How do i hookup my magnavox mrd 210 to my lcd tv for surround sound. have tried to connect with rca wires in back of tv to surround sound system and nothing. tried side of tv and nothing. my surround sound...

Have you seen the user guide?

The TV is intended to be an end point of the video, not a source of audio. Many TV's (monitors) don't have ANY audio, much less surround sound capability. Composite Video is theminimalist video connection for setup; Component video to the TV should suffice for viewing DVD's.

Is your TV the SOURCE of surround sound programming (via an antenna) or does the programming come from elsewhere like a Cable Box? THAT would be the source you need to tap for surround sound.

I trying to hook up the gtd120 to my flat screen i am getting sound however no picture . do i need the s-video wire to see movie? I have all the other wires y-b-r--w. hlep

What you have hooked up(y,pb,pr) is component video which carries the video. The sound is trnasmitted through a different cable, RCA(white and red) probably in your case. You need to make sure taht your component connections are in all the way and are making contact and, taht all three are in the correct inputs on the flat screen. It is easy to confuse the colors and all the connections are close together making it easy to make a mistake, I've done it myself. Once you have established your connections are correct, make sure you go through your TV's menu to make sure you are the right menu screen(TV,DVD, etc.)

I am looking at connecting multiple components with DAV HDX275 Sony surround sound system. But it appears that there is only one red/white/yellow jack on the back of the unit. Any suggestions?

check one more time. your player DAV HD 275 have component video output. three sockets near the yellow, red, white sockets. Named Y, PB/CB, PR/CR.
remember on thing when you connect the component video, be sure to connect the red to red, green to green and blue to blue. if not you will not get the correct video. will become out of sync or black&white

Unit displays f61 and nothing works What component is related to this

"Check and correct the speaker cord connections. Page 7
If this does not fix the problem, there is a power supply problem. Call 1-800-211-7262 for support."

It's implying you have a shorted speaker wire.

I have the same issue. I've opened up several tickets with Samsung tech support. I'm concluding that it's the BluRay rcvr has bad hdmi input & output circuitry. I'm returning mine to Best Buy where I purchased it for a replacement. Before I leave the store, I'm going to make sure that the replacement unit's hdmi inputs & outputs work @ the store.

What is the correct wiring connection using hdmi and optical cables from a lcd tv to yamaha yht292

If you tv has a hdmi input, connect it to the Yahama receiver hdmi output (out). If you are using a satellite receiver, digital converter, or a cable box with hdmi output(s), connect them to the Yahama hdmi input (in) for video and audio signals. If the above box(es) do not have hdmi capabilities, then connect the box(es) to the Yahama with either component (preferred), svideo, or yellow RCA compsite video jack (least preferred) for the video signal. For audio, connect the box(es) with optical or coax (preferred) or left-right-center-front-rear patch cords.

It really all depends on what outputs are available on the boxes and/or signal source(s).

Hope this helps,

No surround sound

It sounds like the speaker wires are mixed up or maybe a setting on the reciever is wrong. Verify your speakers are properly connected. you test speakers using a 9 volt battery or smaller.

Picture is in black and white

If you are using the component video inputs, check your component video connections. You may have the Pb and Pr connections reversed or not plugged in at all. All three (Y,Pb, and Pr) are needed for it to work right. Also make sure that you have the component cables from the home theatre going to the component inputs on the TV. You can get the manual at the link below if you need it.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice, good OR bad.

Good luck!!
