Setting up the TV with our stereo

We would like to set up the TV/DVD so that the sound comes from our Stereo receiver instead of the TV's sound. We cannot figure out how to do this. Any suggestions?

Re: Setting up the TV with our stereo

Sure. On back of DVD player find 'audio out" left and right.
Obtain a twin RCA jack audio cable of sufficient length and put
the two plugs on one end into those audio ports, and plug
the color matching ends into any available" audio in" left/right
ports (except "phono") on your receiver. Done.

For the TV sound use the same kind of twin cable, and obtain
the sound source from audio out left/right on the back of your
cable or satellite provider box and find one additional set
of available "audio in" left/right ports on your receiver. Done.

Turn the receiver dial to correspond to the audio port that
you selected on the back and enjoy it.

If you don't have a separate cable or satellite box chances
are your TV will have audio out left/right ports in the back
or front somewhere and use those to route your TV sound,
but if you do that don't expect the sound quality to be
top notch (depending on the TV circuitry ).

If you have only one unused audio in left right pair available
on your receiver you will need to use an "A/B" audio
switch, and your local electronic store can tell you how to
use it.

You are doing the right thing. The sound should be much
improved by using your receiver. And by the way, when the
sales person in the store suggests that you need gold plated
jacks ignore him and buy the plastic ones. They will work
just fine.

Good luck.

TV audio output vastly different for satellite feed versus DVD feed. Why?

It is possible there are separate sound level functions for the DVD player, the tv and the satellite box, try the different remotes for each by unlocking the volume control on the satellite remote until you get them close or use the device specific remote volume controls. I would also try and use HDMI if available for the DVD instead of composite. If the volume controls are different it will show on the tv, might also go through all audio settings for each device. Some devices are pre-amped or send out strong sound signals while others are line level outputs designed to be amped by the output device, in this case your tv I believe. The HDMI vs stereo audio that goes with composite may be the cause or it could be in the settings of the device. Worst case is to remember to drop volume before you switch back so you don't ruin speakers.

We have an Magnavox 26mf337B and we have no sound

Hi there,
A TV without sound is awful. So let's take some steps to see if we can get it up and running.
1) Check your input cables - if you're trying to watch something through another device (cable box/satellite box/dvd player ETC) make sure that the cables coming from it are inserted correctly into the TV. If the device has it's own seperate sound output (VOL controls) be sure they are turned at least midway UP.
2) Check the settings on your TV - Sometimes TV's have a setting where you can select audio output (speakers, 2.1 5.1, stereo, etc etc) Make sure you have it set to output sound to it's own speakers and adjust the volume to an audible level.
3) Check the audio OUTput on the TV itself - Connect the white and red (or in some cases black and red) RCA jacks to the audio input on a stereo receiver. See if sound comes out. If this is the case, you have either selected the wrong output on your TV's settings, or your Tv's speakers are dead.

Hope this helps you solve your issue!

How do I connect a Sony KDL55EX620 HD TV to a stereo receiver. I am using the HDMI cable from a DirectTV receiver. How do I get the audio to my stereo?

the audio comes out of the Direct TV reciever, OR Audio OUT on the television. Some TVs that take the signal HDMI, do not put sound back out, and in that case, sound signal must come from the reciever box.

Each component, like DVD of Blu Ray will need to have a signal wired to the stereo unit.

We have the stereo hooked up to the dynex 42'' tv, as we did our other tv, we can not mute the complete sound and also sometimes we cant turn the volume up and down whats going on?

Since you have it hooked up to the stereo system, you need to go to on screen audio set up and turn off the TV built-in speakers (you will be listening the TV sound through your stereo system speakers), then go to the audio output set up and set it to 'variable' so the audio output of the TV's RCA audio out put will vary with the volume control of the TV (not all TV will alow this function), you will need to set the stereo volume to certain level (around 9~10 O'clock setting) since the sound coming from the TV will be controlled by the TV remote volume control. You can otherwise set the TV output to be at 'fixed' level, which means the sound output of the TV will not be controlled by the TV remote volume control, you will use the stereo remote volume control to adjust the sound level instead. I hope this is clear to you.

Westinghouse TV no stereo

Hi my name is Roety,
I can help you with your issue ,
Why don't you simply run the cable box and DVD stereo outputs direct to the receiver. Thats what most people do. TVs do not passthrough stereo signal very well do to DHCP compliance requirements .

Setting up tv sound to come thru stereo speakers


Offhand, your Philips 32PFL7422/98 do not have regular Audio Output RCA jacks (white and red), sorry. However, right before the antenna connector is an S/PDIF output connector. This should allow transfer of digital audio signals from the Philips 32PFL7422/98 to a S/PDIF capable receiver or amplifier. If you would look at the rear of your stereo and determine if it has such an input, then it would be a matter of getting the right cable/connector.

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.

RCA Audio Out not working?

You don't say whether you're successfully getting sound out of your stereo or not. I'll assume for the moment you are. Still getting sound out the TV is perfectly normal - RCA plugs have no mechanism for automatically disconnecting the built in speakers (in this respect, they're different from a headphone socket). Solution should simply be to press the mute button on the TV remote - although this will silence the TV speakers, you wouldn't normally expect it to affect the RCA output (failing that, just turn the TV volume control right down).
