U are connected properly - BUT it appears there is no output from your tv audio jacks to drive your HK amplifier. Ordinarily those outputs on a set are always hot but you might want to check your tv manual to see if there is a switch on them.
Go into the onscreen menu of your TV, find and select the audio options. Make sure the audio out on the TV is enabled (this might be an automatic feature and might not be displayed -it depends on your TV model). Next make sure your receiver is working and (if it is so equipped) make sure your speaker switch is enabled. Make sure all of your cables are working. You can do this by switching out the cables one at a time for ones you know are good. Make sure no headphones are plugged into your receiver or the TV -this usually turns off your audio signal to any speakers. Your TV remote may be equipped to control the volume output of the external audio out signal. Some TVs automatically turn off the internal speakers when you hookup or select an external audio output. turn up the volume on both (your TV and the Mitsubishi). Does the Mitsubishi work on other sources (DVD, radio etc...)? Remember to double check your cable connections -audio OUT from the TV to audio IN into the Mitsubishi. Reversed connections can damage your TV and amplifier electronics. What model is your Insignia? Some are equipped with digital outputs which, if your receiver is so equipped as well, can send surround sound (home theatre) signals to your receiver. These can be orange-colored rca jacks or optical jacks. They do not send analog audio signals. Once all the cables are double-checked, (double-check your speaker connections!), turn on your receiver, TV and signal source (cable, satellite DVD etc...), bring the volume control (both on the Mitsubishi and the TV) up to nominal levels. You should hear sound. One more thing: Make sure your speakers work. You can try them on another amp or simply touch the speaker terminals with a 9-volt battery (the speakers should move in or out depending on the 'phase' of the connection). Hope that helps.
Is your cable box HD? It would be best for your tv. You can hook up a couple of ways depending on your receiver and tv in/out capabilities. You will always get best picture if you go directly from your cable box out to tv in. You should have capabilty to go HDMI out and perhaps Component out on your cable box. If you can't get hd receiver from cable company. Anyway, if you use HDMI, hook to HDMI out on receiver to HDMI in on tv. HDMI provides audio and video. You can also go componenet(red, blue, green) out from recevier to in on tv. I personally feel component gives you better picture but , doesn't carry audio. For that you need to get audio using either digital optical or, composite cables. You may have to set your HD on receiver through cable boxes menu. The last option is using composite cables(last choice, poorest picture and sound) yellow(video) and red, white(audio)
Actually, most will work. AUX IN, LINE IN, or TUNER in will all accept the "line level" output of the Wii. Just pick one of those, start with the volume DOWN on the amp and fire it up. Slowly increase volume but if nothing is heard in the first 1/4 turn, you've probably got something hooked up wrong. Back it down again and try another input or check connections.
If your set up is HDR-AVR and TV all you need to do is go HDMI out from HDR to HDMI in(Sat.) of AVR and monitor out HDMI (or composite video) to TV. and select the Sat. input on the AVR. The sound is only comming from the HDR in this case and the composite video or HD video is being switched out to the TV when you select Sat. on your AVR
Is this a Pioneer receiver? They have the prefix of VSX but I can not locate that model on Pioneers website. It could be because it is an older model and no service information is on the website for receivers older than about 5 years old.
To answer your question I need more information. Do you want to connect the video switching of the receiver to the TV or just want the sound of the TV to go to the receiver? I would also need to know what type of video devices you want to connect and what type of inputs and outputs your TV has.
Most TV's have at least a composite video input, that is the most common type. it is a yellow RCA jack on the back of the TV and will be listed as an "input". That is what would be connected to the video output jack (yellow RCA) of the receiver from the TV for video switching. Then you need video sources connected to the video inputs of the receiver to go to the TV. You also need to connect the audio RCA cables from the video devices to the receiver on the proper video inputs that you have connected. Each video input for composite or S-video has audio RCA jacks (red and white) inputs so you can hear the sound of your video device on the receiver.
If you only want to play the sound from your TV on the recevier, you can use the audio output RCA jacks on the TV and connect them to an audio input of the receiver. This is a very simple way of using the receiver for all the different devices connected to the TV without having to connect everything to the receiver and then always having to have the receiver on any time you watch TV. The audio RCA jacks are always the red and white jacks. you just need to make sure you are using the output jacks of the TV and they are connected to an input jack on the receiver. Then you must switch the receiver to what ever input you just connected the TV to, like the "Video 1" or "Video 2" or maybe "Aux" input.
I hope this helps, but you didn't give much information on how you wanted to connect them.
