Try turning the volume up on the pc first, and then the hts volume should be amplified by using its own volume control

I have a HT Z220 Samsung home cinema and a new tv (LG M2352) I've connected it via the satelite box or cable receiver so have surround sound but is there a way I can attach my laptop to the surround...

Get a mp3 player adapter, it will have a headphone jack on one end and the red and white cables on the other end. Plug into the headphone jack on your computer, and plug the red and white jacks into the Aux input on the receiver. I didn't look at the link, but most receivers have a Aux input on them. That should solve your problem.

I have a Digital Audio/Video Control Center, model number STR-DE695. There is a AUX button on the front, but I can't find the aux cord to plug my iPod to my system. Help!

Check the back and front of your system. The AUX input may be either:
- two red and yellow holes (known as phono L R)
-a 'headphone' jack input hole

the cable might not have been supplied with the system. Also, the cable you need may not connect to your iPod through the large connection, it may actually connect through the headphone jack.

So, you may need either:
-a cable with a headphone jack on both ends (one for the system and one for the ipod)
-a cable with phono L R on one end (for the system) and headphone jack on the other end(for the ipood)

Product : DVD stereo system Panasonic sa-vk925d The problem is, in aux mode the volume is less than other modes how could i make louder that?

Aux is an input, not a mode. Look to the source that is connected to it. If it's PHONO, the sound will be very low (useless) and tinny without a phono preamplifier in line with it.

How do i connect my computer to my sanyo DC-TS 780. so i get the computer sound to the home cinema system?

Your PC's audio capabilities are unknown to us, but it probably has at least a headphone or green audio output, Gdet an adapter to convert it to RCA and jack it into the AUX input, Make sure your PC audio control volume settings are turned up high enough to use.

I want to hook up my computer to my dvd

Hi,this is a stepwise description of how to connect your computer to your dvd(home theater system).

STEP 1 Determine the distance between your computer and your system. If your computer is within 12 feet of your home theater system , you can directly connect them.
STEP 2 Make sure there is a free set of inputs on the back of your system. This should be a label that says "Input" and two connectors (usually red and white). Alternateively, they could be labeled "Aux," or "DVD." This is the source that you will select on the front of your device when you wish to listen to sound from your computer.
STEP 3 Determine the length of cable you need. Measure the distance between the back of your computer to the back of your DVD. The cable generally comes in 3-, 6-, and 12-foot lengths.
STEP 4 Visit an electronics store to purchase a Y adapter cable of the proper length. At one end the cable will have a plug to go into the headphone jack of your computer. (The plug will look like the plug on the end of any pair of headphones.) At the other end, the cable will have two RCA-type plugs (red and white). These go into your system.
STEP 5 Plug the computer end of the cable into the headphone jack on your computer. There may be a few jacks; the headphone one is usually green. Connect the other end of the cable to the free set of inputs on the back of your system. Be sure to match red to red and white to white.
STEP 6 Turn on your system and set the volume pretty low so you don't accidentally make a real loud noise.
STEP 7 Select the input to which you connected the Y adapter. For example, if you connected to "Aux," press the "Aux" button on the front of your system.
STEP 8 Adjust the volume of your computer to around 80 percent. You should hear the sound of your computer playing through your system.

Thanks and take care

Connecting PC to the Philips HTS3455

Hum first,,, anytime you have 2 devices with sound running to a cable or ant equipted TV you will get a hum as they are grounded off curcuit. HumEliminator (radio shack). You didn't tell us if your PC had been enabled in control panel for either device. I have had no luck using the rear aduio output on any computer. Front headphone jack on PC does not need enabled and will work better for this. Unless you use a USC codet interface which is better yet for CD quality in sound. Also make sure the Aux inout is enabled on TV as well. Direct Input would be the same. Lastly,,you are 100% positive the backside is input and not actually out put or gaming inputs.

Can i hook a surround sound to my zune

It is usually as simple as getting a 3.5mm stereo headphone jack to RCA adapter, like this one: (this will work just fine, even though it says 'ipod')

Or they have "Zune Ready" adapter kits, like this one:

Once you have the cable, you stick the headphone plug (3.5 mm stereo mini-phono) into the headphone jack on your Zune, then you insert the red and white RCA jacks into an open input on your surround receiver... most have an auxilliary input jack set on the front of the unit. All you need to do at this point is select the "aux input" for the source on the surround receiver, start your Zune, and make sure the volume on the Zune is somewhere in the 50 - 75% range, and you should be good to go.
