You can try the Optical input to the surround unit if the direct TV box has that type of output. That would be the best way to connect if you can to any external device. Good luck.

Hi i have philips surround sound, i am looking for advice on how to connect to my toshiba tv. cant get tv sound through the speakers. please advise, thank you Steve


With NO devices identified in this scenario...

Manuals help as far as actual connections go.

First of all we need to know how audio comes in from the TV and its make/model, just in case it's complicated - cable type and name the output to each input on the RCA.

A TV's speakers are NOT generally considered a viable additions or alternatives to audio-specific designs. That is not to say they aren't better than some. Just that same TV's usually are not at the output end of an audio chain for good reason. Video, yes.

Even though this may go 'against the book', I'd recommend you go for minimal receiver involvement in the video side other than to send composite video to the TV from "Monitor Out" so you can set up and manage the receiver through the TV.

You can also send Cable- or Sat Box basic analog audio directly to the TV if it has inputs for audio. That way if you just want to watch the news or weather you don't need to fire up the Receiver.

Your video sources (DVD, BD, Cable/Sat) can suffer fewer video anomalies and unnecessary modifications or conversions if you send their BEST video directly to the TV and their BEST audio directly to the receiver. That way everything is handled only once by the best electronics you have for each function. The presence of separate Inputs and Outputs for Audio and Video encourages this method.

I have a LG47" tv


Your DVD audio is sent directly to your receiver - not to you TV. That's why you can hear the audio on your stereo. The TV audio is not being sent anywhere - it is "stuck" in the TV and is amplified and sent to the TV speakers. Since the TV speakers are off, you don't hear anything. In order to listen to the TV audio on the stereo system's speakers, you need to send it to the receiver.

You need to have a pair (left + right signals) of audio cables (assuming you wish to listen to stereo sound) from the TV's Audio Output jacks to a pair of Audio Input jacks on the receiver / amplifier. You can use any unused input - CD, Video, Tape, Sat, etc. If you use Tape or Sat audio inputs, when you wish to listen to the TV audio, you must select the Tape or Sat input on the receiver.

Do not send more than one signal to a set of inputs on the receiver. Typically, a CD, DVD and Sat inputs offer two or more of the following types 1) Analog audio. These are the older RCA jacks that have been around since the beginning and require separate cables for left and right channels. 2) Optical inputs. This is the newer digital interface that provides for Dolby Digital (and others) format sound over a single fiber optic cable. 3) Coaxial inputs. This jacks looks like an RCA jack, but usually has an Orange ring - instead of the Red & White rings that analog RCA jacks have. They use a single coaxial cable. 4) HDMI input. This jacks carries both digital video and digital audio signals. If you are using an Optical input for the DVD on the receiver, do not use any other unused analog or digital inputs associated with the DVD to "piggyback" another device like a CD , VHS tape, etc.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Assuming a single cause we need to isolate which single device is involved in all these failure modes.

"It comes out of both speakers" on what - the TV?

You don't say how the DVD interefaces with the receiver. Is the DVD feeding digital multichannel audio out at that time? Many DVD's are simple stereo until the show actually begins. You know that.

Try running an HDMI connection straight to the TV from the cable box. Result?

Substitute the other HDMI cable for the first one. Result?

If either one does NOT work satisfactorily we may have part of the problem isolated.

If they both work, the TV and cables are ok.

Attach the HDMI out of the receiver and IN to the TV and the HDMI from the Cable Box as before. Same result?

Can you try using Component Video out of the receiver to the TV just to change something in the equation? On my rig I 'see' no difference between HDMI and Component Video on my HDTV. A change in the result may help to isolate or work around part of your problem.

Trying to get sound to come out of system when watching tv


Connect the audio from the source of the TV's sound to the receiver.

Cable/Sat/Games will yield the BEST sound if the receiver gets it directly and digitally.

No Sound on TV/SAT setting on Receiver.


Most TV has Audio Out RCA jack at rear and it gives same TV Sound as coming from its speakers.
Hook audio wire red white RCA pins at TV Out and plug these pins to TV/SAT input of receiver. Select TV/SAT input in receiver to get TV program sound coming out from TV.
Hope that info will help you.

No TV sound from Home Cinema System


If you are using Cable or Sat receiver, you need audio from the cable or sat receiver to the audio system. If you are using an "off-air" antenna, you need an audio cable from the TV to the audio system. If you need more help, post a comment with the products manufacturer and model numbers and I can be more specific. Hope this helps.

No sound on tv but have sound on dvd and radio through my home cinama i wont to listen to the tv through the home cinema but cant get it


What is the source of your TV signal? Cable? Sattellite? Are you using the receiver in your tv or a cable/sattellite receiver box?

Whatever the source of your TV signal - it will probably have several choices of output. Make sure you have that connected to the tv-input on your home cinema. Then make sure that when TV is selected on your home cinema that the audio format specified matches what you hooked up i.e. analog (the red and white cables), optical or coax.

TV/SAT Video channel went out - Pioneer VSX516


Double check the video connection cable directly out of the SAT reciver and the video cable out from the Pioneer reciver, as there maybe an intermittant connection in them. If you replace them or sub them for known good ones, and you still have this probem, there is a switching IC inside the pioneer that has to be replaced.
