Re: Video inputs

I had the same problem until I switched my player-to-TV connection from S-Video to Composite.  Then it worked just fine.  Now I have player-to-TV as Composite, and Wii-to-player as Composite connected to Aux1.

Cant see wii picture, it is connected through my vcr

You don't say how what the VCR make/model or your TV and its capabilities. The video pass-through of your VCR would be described in its manual. I'd skip past the VCR if it was my Wii.

Here are the relevant manuals for what we know...

The Curtis doesn't haved a composite video in so I thin the solution would be to run theWii Video to the TV's Composite Video In (usually just marjed "video"), and the Wii Audio to the Curtis Aux In 1 or 2. Obviously, one of these connection will require the cable t obe extended to reach two different destinations.

Page 8 in the Wii manual shows the AV cable. It requires a composite video input (the Yellow tip).

Page 12 shows its connection to any standard AV device. That would be the TV or the VCR for Video, as the Curtis apparently doesn't have a composite video input, and the audio could go to the Curtis, the TV, or both using a couple Y-adapter to share the audio. That way you could use the Wii with the TV only or with the audio from the Curtis.

Or you could just run the supplied Wii Audio to the Curtis and get a single RCA cable extender with a Female on one end and a Male on the other to reach the Video to the TV or VCR.

The following is 12' long, for example...

Can not get my Samsung TV to recognize the ht system. I am able to get the sound out of the ht system and the video on the tv when i play dvds but the sound will not transfer from the tv to the ht system...

The way mine is hooked up is like this: Ps3, DirecTV box all plugged to my samsung TV and then only thing I have plugged into the Ht box is the hdmi out to TV and an Optical Cable from Tv to HT box. All audio is going to Tv then to HT box and plays all through hometheater box when it is on. Try the optical cable

How do i connect a samsung home cinema system HT-TXQ120 to my laptop so that i can play music from my laptop out of my home cinema

Are you trying to hook up audio video or both? for video most likely your laptop uses s-video for that you just have to hook up the cable and set it up in your video settings on the laptop. Also do you have the model number of the laptop? Most likely you will want a 3.5mm to RCA audio cable. Then run that to the same audio input to correspond with the video input. Hope this helps.

Will play dvds with sound fine...but no sound from tv

You have to connect extra red & white audio cable from your TV's (or cable box, if you have one) AUDIO OUT to the Home Theater's AUX IN 2 at the back (below Video In). Set the HTS unit to AUX 2 using the AUX button on the remote control and you should be able to get sound.

My video out on my home theater system wont work.

your reciver probabily wont pass progressive through it, Hook the audio from the box to your reciever, and the video directily to your tv, thats a better way to do it anyway, your tv has alot better video prossesor than your reciver , or hook both audio and video to your tv, and run audio output from your tv to the reciver

Wiring problems

Not certain if HDMI can be used in a setup like this. I'd try it from the home theater (HT) to the TV, and other wiring for the other components.

For video:
All of these should have component connections (Y/Pr/Pb). You'll only need the video cables for each device:
  • Video out from cable, HT, and combo player.
  • Video in to TV. Your choice of inputs.
For audio:
Hopefully, the two output devices (the combo player and the cable box) have digital audio (fiber optic, or RCA coaxial). Otherwise, you'll only get stereo sound. VHS is stereo only anyway.
  • Audio out from cable box and combo player.
  • Audio in to HT.
The TV won't have anything to do with audio in this setup. Alternatively, you could try hooking up all inputs to the TV, and connecting audio out from the TV to the HT. Works best if this connection is digital, for surround.

Hooking up Playstation 2

first, run your playstation 2's video and audio outputs to the inputs of the receiver. Choose whatever source you want, for example, DVD, VCR, or Video 1, 2, or 3.

Then, run the Monitor Out output on the receiver into your Video Input on your television.

Whatever source you hooked your PS2 as (ie DVD, VCR), select that source on the receiver. You should hear sound at this point.

Then select the video input on the TV that you hooked the receiver to. You should see video.

This will allow you to use the receiver as a switcher for both audio and video.

Can i send video from Nintendo Wii through my home theater to my projector?

A few things to consider; what type of connection is your Wii using? Composite, component, s-video, coax? Most home theater setups are made to route multiple video signals, usually of the Composite (RCA Red Yellow White) variety, and should be clearly labeled Video In. If it doesn't have extra inputs, you might want to consider buying a media switchbox- A switch like the one linked above allows you to hook multiple audio and video sources into it and easily switch between them by pressing a button on the front.
