How do i connect my 42 baird to a paciffic home theater system

Hi,here is the solution......
You will need some cable for connections..I hope you have it..

** you need to connect "Audio Output " as can either be : 2xRCA jacks or "Optic cable output" or "SCART "connector " or HDMI connector of your TV ,
** to Receiver's "TV input "or "AUX input" or "Optic Cable input"
or SCART or HDMI of your Home Theater Receiver (whichever you want ,based on the existing sockets and necessary cables on your hand )
** than just switch to respective SOURCE mode on
Receiver corresponding the connector you have used on the back of Receiver ..
You can use "HDMI" connections as well but sometimes HDMI creates problem on Audio..
Pls remember.."IN " goes to "OUT" or vice versa..all the times..
There you go..Both Tv and Xbox (if you have ) sound are on the
Receiver as SURROUNDING SOUND .By this means ,whatever you watch on the TV will come thru your Receiver's SURROUNDING SOUND speakers .

Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know.
Take care and please

How can I connect my dvd player to a Philips 32PFL5605H/05 32-inch Widescreen Full HD LED TV ? It is of the type which has one red, one yellow, and one white connector but i do not see any sockets that...

The included cable with the red, yellow and white RCA connectors is a composite A/V cable. To connect this cable to the TV, you need a SCART-cinch adapter. Then use one of the SCART connections on the TV. Note: the SCART connection does not handle HD signal.

You will get a much better picture if you buy a different cable. Depending on your DVD player, get either an HDMI cable or a pair of cables - a component video and audio cable. (Both component and the audio cable will have RCA plugs at each end. The component video has 3 plugs - red, blue and green. The audio will have 2 plugs - white and red.) Both of these will carry HD signals. Most DVD players will have at least component video and composite video jacks; some have the HDMI output. Most DVD/VCR combinations will need the composite video for the VCR and the component video is optional for the DVD signal.

I hope this helps.

Not all SCART connectors and cables carry the IN and OUT connections - make sure that the one from the freeview box has OUT connections, that the cable can carry them and that the one from the recorder has IN connections. Then , to record what you want, all you have to do is to tune the freeview box on that channel and set the recorder to use that SCART connector as source.

connect the aerial to the dvd/vcr/freeview combo, connect a scart from that to the tv, from the scart out socket.
you can then connect the sky from the scart marked tv to either the tv direct or to the combo if it has a second scart.
Note. a scart socket with an arrow going into a box is an input, coming out of the boe is an output and a double arrow is a two way scart.
if you use scart 2 on the tv to connect the combo, the combo will recieve a signal from the tv for recording.

I have a 47'' phillips lcd flat screen,will my tuner work without using cable box(timewarner) and still pickup all the channels

If the TV tuner has digital connection with HDMI, or th white red and yellow connectors for RCA cable, it will work with the new TV.

If the tuner has only coax round antenna-like connector, then it will not work with TV tuner.

Many new TV also do not have scart cable connector, but adapters Scart to RCA are available.

Video output from tv to recorder

You can buy Scart connectors that work either solely as an out put, where you can buy some that are solely an input, look for the type of Scrat with a small switch on it, normally means that it is input/output switchable, it may also depend on the tv's scart plug. if the tv says out put or input then you may encounter a problem.

Audio from an external input only shows as mono on the TV information display.

If you are only getting sound through one speaker of the TV, check the scart connections are all in fully, and straight.

If you are getting sound through both speakers, then the sound is stereo. Stereo only shows when there is a NICAM stereo sound source, which is only through analogue terrestrial TV.
