    I done that; actually that doesn't do anything to the sound then it just comes out of the front of tv which is what we are listening to now (only front speakers) the great sound is coming from the back when put in variable audio; is thatt only for if I want to hook up additional speakers to the tv? Boy what a shame if I can't use the speakers in the back of tv also, why can't I adjust volume when in variable audio.

    I assume that while hooking surround in variable audio out at back of TV, if you decrease volume level, surround system sound will also be decrease.
    If its true, please plug red-white wires in OUT terminals instead of variable.
    It is just under variable sound out jacks, yellow for video out and red-white for audio out. It is fixed sound level and your surround wont effected if TV volume increased or decreased.
    Let me know if the problem is some thing else. I do have schematics for this TV.
    Thanks.

    There is slide switch at back, if its set ON, Tv front speaker will not give good sound (they turn into center speaker) make sure this switch is Off.
    You can turn off tv front speakers in Audio Menu so to only get sound from surround sound system that is hooked with TV.
    Thanks.

    The switch is off and if I turn off front speakers in audio menu I get no volume at all. I just wish there was something I could do to get the volume down on center speakers. do you have any thoughts?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, have you tried turning OFF the STABLE SOUND?

  • MENU, < or > to select AUDIO menu;
  • UP / DOWN to highlight STABLE SOUND;
  • < or > OFF

Alternately, you may want to consider doing a RESET of the audio settings; otherwise the next possibility is that the variable audio out has faulted and is locked at max volume out.

Postback result of above tries.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

I have sound from satelite box through bose 321 but no picture on tv


First, you need to run the coax cable from your satellite dish to the "cable in" input on the back of your satellite receiver, not the Bose. If your satellite receiver has an HDMI OUT, and if the Bose has an HDMI IN,run hdmi OUT from the rec. to the Bose IN, then keep your HDMI connection from the Bose OUT to the TV IN as is. Make sure you've selected the correct input on the TV menu. As it is right now, you're not delivering any video signal at all to the TV!! -only audio(red and white). There are a couple other ways, but they won't give you the same quality. I assume this is HD, right? If you CAN do it this way (i.e. if you have enough HDMI ins and outs), it's the best possible hookup and you won't need the composite (red, white and yellow) at all. By the way, it's the yellow connector that carries the video signal; the red and white are audio left and right. If you can't hook it up all HDMI, disconnect the "separate cable" (I'm not sure what that is or what kind of cable or what it's for)and plug in the yellow connector into video IN on the Bose.

I have a Philips soundbar that I have hooked up to my flat screen tv using audio (red,white) cables directly from soundbar to tv and there is no sound coming out.


Be sure you are hooking up the Audio Output from the TV or satellite to the soundbar.

From the satellite box both Audio Output and Video Output go to the TV, and then Audio Output from the TV goes to the soundbar.
Or
From the satellite box Video Output goes to the TV and Audio Output goes to the soundbar.

This may help as well:

No surround sound on normal tv just dvds


Do you have a cable box or satellite box? If you do, try hooking up your TV sound through the box. Look for audio out in the back of box (white/red RCA Jacks). Hook RCA cable from cable box to surround amp. Even if the audio out jacks are being used already, you can use Y connectors to hook up the surround amp to the box.
Hope this works for you!

Getting stereo speakers to work with flat panel tv


if you hook the low-level audio-out from the tv to an input to the stereo unit, whatever you play on tv will send audio to surround/stereo reciever unit. look on back of tv for red &white AUDIO OUTPUT terminals. plug red/white audio cables from tv to the back of your stereo & plug into audio input of an open source on stereo (tv/video,aux. in,etc.) good luck!

Only getting sound but no picture!


Well, i had a look at the back of that Toshiba TV - make sure that the red, white, and yellow cables are hooked into the Video-1 slot of the Toshiba and that the Toshiba channel is changed to Video 1.
Then check your nameless DVD player and make sure the red, white, and yello cables are all hooked to OUTPUT slots that are in the same column or row - if I had you DVD manufacturer and model #, I could suggest some additional steps to check. Also, make sure your dvd player is in dvd playback mode.

For the TV:
There are a few possibilities.
1)You can connect a red and white AV cable (or the red and white portion of a red, white and yellow cable) from the TV Audio OUTPUT to the "Audio In/TV" portion of the HTS (NOTE: Many TV's do not have an Audio OUTPUT).
2)You can connect a red and white AV cable (or the red and white portion of a red, white and yellow cable) from the Audio OUTPUT of your cable or satellite box to the "Audio In/TV" portion of the HTS.
Note: Using a red and white cable may not give you sound on all 5 speakers.
3)Get a digital audio or SPDIF cable and run it from the TV, Cable or Satellite Box's Digital Audio OUT to the "DIGITAL IN" of the HTS. This will give you the best sound quality. When using this (or any of the other) type of connection, press SURR until you get sound from all 5 speakers.

For the Xbox, try hooking a red/white audio cable from the Xbox into the Audio IN/AUX on the back of the HTS, and then switching the source on the home theater to AUX.

Also, the manual can be obtained from www.usasupport.philips.com
