How do I hook up my 55 inch led tv to a stereo for better sound


In many cases newer tv's do not have an audio out, some have a headphone jack on the side (Small usually blue)

Otherwise if you are wanting to get better sound from a DVD / Blueray / Satellite / Cable box, You can put the audio from these devices into your sound system, then plug your sound systems audio out into the tv.
The video out from your devices will need to connect directly into the tv.

If using HDMI or S-Video that carries both audio and video, slitter / separation boxes are available, but usually degrade sound and audio quality.

The above would look something like

Cable box audio out (red / white) to Stereo audio IN. >> Stereo Audio OUT to TV audio in.
Yellow (Video) Cable from cable box then goes directly to the TV Video IN. Just make sure the audio and video cables are going to the same section (Some tv's may have multiple audio / video in's

Hooking your PS2 Up To your Stereo
Just got a PS2 and trying to hook it up to your TV, stereo or both? Here are instructions to help you get everything working smoothly.

First, some basic cable definitions. These are pretty much standard for ANY system or stereo you ever get, so it's good to learn them.

RED CABLE - right channel for stereo sound (get it - Red Right?)
WHITE CABLE - left channel for stereo sound
YELLOW CABLE - video signal

Your PS2 plays games and plays DVDs. So it is generating signals that go OUT of that box. You want those signals to go IN to your TV. The most simple way to do this is to simply plug them into your TV, if you have no stereo system hooked up and nothing else attached to your TV. Most TVs have stereo left in, stereo right in, and video in. Most in fact have them all color coded with the above colors. So all you do is plug the cables in and turn the TV on. Some TVs have to be set to channel 2 or 3 to know to take the signal in from the Video In line, but your manual would tell you if that was the case. Here is a diagram of the straight connection.

I would really recommend hooking a stereo system into your TV, though. The PS2 has INCREDIBLY stereo sound and you really miss out on a lot if you just have the sound coming out of your TV speakers!! Especially if you play DVDs through your PS2, you want that sound coming out of the stereo system. So in this case you would send the video to your TV, so your TV can show the picture. You then send your audio (sound) to the stereo, so it can play the sound. Most stereo systems have multiple input spots so you can plug in your CD player, your tape player, your record player, etc. So just choose an input spot that isn't taken yet. Here's an image of that connection -

So let's say you don't have a tape player and therefore plug the red cable into "Tape Input R" and plug the white cable into "Tape Input L". To make the sound play, you would now press the "Tape" selection button on your stereo so it played the music coming through the tape channel. Since that's where your PS2 is plugged in, that is the sound that will come out of your speakers.

Supergirl 13 color tv/dvd combo plays CDs but not DVDs...


If cleaning did not fix it the optical pickup for that unit is damaged in some way---if the set has audio/video INPUT jacks on it just buy a DVD player and hook it to the set.

If no jacks you are finished--DVD portion of the unit if available costs more than the entire set.

How to Hook Up a Receiver to an HDTV

Though it utilizes the most sophisticated technology on the plant, an HDTV is extremely easy to hook up to a receiver. Home entertainment systems are designed for compatibility, whether it is a cable or satellite receiver, a DVD player or a stereo sound system.


Instructions

things you'll need:

* HD television
* HD satellite or cable receiver
* DVD player
* Stereo receiver
* AV cables
* Cable connector
* HDMI cables


Examine the back of your HDTV. You will see a series of input jacks for AV cables, (typically color-coded white and red for audio and yellow for video), as well as an antenna input and one or more HDMI input jacks. There will likely be a number of them, but each one should be distinguished with a label ("video," "cable" or something similar).

Attach the cable connector from the cable or satellite receiver to the antenna input on the back of the TV.


Connect the AV cables to the DVD player, VCR, stereo receiver or whichever other component you wish to connect to the television. The cables should line up by color: place the white cable in the white input jack, the red cable in the red input jack and the yellow cable in the yellow input jack. All three cables from each component need to go into the same label input jacks. Usually, they will all line up in a vertical row.


Find the HDMI output jack on your receiver or DVD player (some receivers will not have them--they are necessary to receive a high definition signal--but can still play on the TV through the cable connector or AV cables). Attach one end of an HDMI cable to the output jack of the receiver and the other end into the input jack on the HDTV.


Turn on the TV. Access the menu with your remote, and follow any instructions it gives you. Your HDTV may require a few additional steps to complete the hookup of the receiver (though not all of them will).


Access the "input" button on your TV remote. This will allow you to switch the TV signal to one of the cable connections you have just made. For example, if you attached the HDMI cable to the first of two HDMI input jacks, the TV will flash "HDMI 1" on the screen to tell you that is where it is receiving its signal.

Tips & Warnings

*

Not everything that can be hooked up to an HDTV is capable of playing in high definition. The signal needs to be HD as well, which means that only HD broadcasts, HD DVDs and Blu-Ray DVDs can play in full high definition (though "upgrade" DVD players will allow normal DVDs to play at an enhanced picture). You can still hook receivers up to an HDTV, and it will still play broadcasts from them as clearly as the signal permits.

I don't have a cable box and have hooked my Sony DAV-X1 system directly into the av input jacks on my tv. I can watch and listen to dvd's but the speakers won't work when watching tv.


What are you doing? Note the following:
The only cable you should connect to your TV from your X1 are the video cables
Logic is you want to use the system for sound and your TV for video only
  • If you have an LCD TV use the HDMI connection for video from your DVDs
  • If not the best video is using the component video (red green blue) i.e connect this to your X1 and your TV input
  • If your TV does not have this just use the video out composite (yellow). On the X1 it is indicated as Monitor
The reason why you do not have any audio from the TV is because you have not connected Audio Out from your TV to your X1. Do the following:
  • Identify if your TV has stereo audio out i.e A/V out should have red and white jacks
  • If this is the case connect this to your input on your X1 corresponding to TV
  • If your TV only has one Audio Out jack you need an RCU cable that has one to two pins and you would connect the single pin to your Audio out on the TV and the two (red/white) to your X1)
  • To listen to audio from TV simply set the input or source setting on your X1 to TV

Let know if this resolves your problem

Won't play dvd


we have two options in this case:
  1. the receiver is your main brain:
you hook up the dvd in the receiver and the tv works as a monitor (the receiver has to have video output to monitor)

2. anyone works at its own:
in this configuration the DVD (video) is hook up into the tv (any video tv input works fine) and audio goes to the receiver in any audio input.
