How do I connect to TV using analogue cable ?


Some TVs have headphone output. It is 6.3mm jack or 3.5mm jack. Often located on the back of the TV if it is a LED ord LCD TV.
You probably need an audio cable that has jack in one end and two RCA konnectors in the other.

If it isn't sound you're looking for, but picture, and your TV only have SCART or component image input, you need equipment with SCART output or component output. Some SCART plugs do have separated audio and component outputs.

Do i need to buy anything extra for my ilive 37' soundbar for my tv? The sound doesnt work with my tv, but the bluetooth works just fine.


You'll need some sort of audio cable to connect the TV's sound or audio output to the soundbar. For the most basic connection, use an RCA-style cable ( like the one found here: http://goo.gl/5F8yLh ) to connect your TV's audio output to the soundbar's input. Most soundbars also have an SPDIF input ( like the one found here: http://goo.gl/2F2rKs ) and most modern TV's have an SPDIF output. Get an SPDIF optical digital audio cable to connect the two devices together. Once you've decided which type of connection to use and have connected the TV's audio output the soundbar, then make sure you select the proper input on the soundbar. That should fix your problem.

Panasonic home cinema connection issues


What other audio/video outputs does the TV have? Does it have an HDMI port? If so, connect TV to your home theater using HDMI to HDMI.

How connect toshiba tv to samsung home cinema whit hdmi? i connect but still no sound. i want watch tv but listen in cinema sistem


the hdmi jack on the tv is an INPUT jack, not an output. to use your reciever for tv sound, you have to find the audio output on the tv (most do not have an audio out, but some higher end tv's have a fiber-optic digital out, which may or may not be compatible with your surround sound reciever)

if your tv does not have an audio out, the only way to get the tv sound into the styereo is to use a tuner box, like a cable box or satelite box. tuner boxes always have either hdmi or stereo audio outputs.

to use hdmi with your surround sound, you are supposed to run HDMI OUTPUT from the tuner box or disk player into the HDMI INPUT of the stereo, and then run the HDMI OUTPUT of the stereo into the HDMI INPUT of the tv.

I have an LG TV with an LG HOME CINEMA SYSTEM problem is: watch dvd/blue ray - video fine sound fine (through speakers) watch tv / sky -- video fine sound None throughspeakers on...


Hello,
There are two things that I can suggest.
1-Test your optical cables to make sure they a good on a known working source because they are very fragile and break very easily.
2-Try to eliminate the use of optical output from tv to receiver. There may be a problem from the HDMI to optical conversion at the tv. Instead, try running the audio directly from the source to the receiver, and let the tv deal with video input only.
Hope this helps,
Good Luck.

This tv has no outputs so how can i connect it to my home cinema system


If there is no audio output socket, then you cannot directly connect it to your cinema system unless the Euroconnector carries sound output, some better models do.
Hope this helps.

I am tryin to connect my Phillips HTS3011/05 home cinema system to my Technika LCD32-207 tv. It works fine if i watch a dvd, but it doesnt work when i play my Xbox 360 through its HD cable, or watch normal...


My TV has a Output port, It is only output for sound, IF you TV has this, then you need to use those, But i dono if it would have them, If it dosent the you will not be able to use the surround for everything without Plugging it in as you use it,
