New sorround system

I just now purchased a new Magnovox sorround system. I have an older model RCA 27 in TV that does not have out put jacks, just input.
I cant remember how it did this the last time and I need help with it.
I do believe that I had the cable going to the VCR, this VCR has out put and in jacks. all I want is to have my TV play through the sorround system
If there is a way, and I know there is I just dont remember how I did it
will you help me find it?

thanks

Hans

The cable box had red and white audio output jacks - run a red/white cable (or red and white portion of a red, white, and yellow cable) to the audio in/tv port of the magnavox

How I Connect My Soniq TV To The Home Theatre Which Is A Panosonic Which Has Got RCA Cables And The TV Has Got HDMI Thanks


This is the case of trying yo put the square peg in the round hole. You home theater, as it is older, handles signals in an Analog Format. The TV, being newer technology, handles signals in a Digital Format. There are sets out there that have both RCA and HDMI inputs, but you need to do you homework and ensure compatibility before selecting devices as these two are incompatible.

Connecting a sound bar


Typically you will connect the RCA audio output jacks to the audio input jacks on the sound bar, but if your television does not have RCA audio output, you may have to buy additional hardware to make the soundbar work. If your TV has a headphone jack, then you will need to purchase an 1/8" Headphone connector to RCA Connector cable from a local electronics or audio store. If your TV doens't have any audio outputs, you may need to purchase a digital tuner box and connect it to your TV and soundbar.

Ipod Hook-up


Ipod's utilize headphone jack style connectors which can be purchased just about anywhere electronics are sold, however most dvd players utilize RCA jacks so you must purchase an adapter from ipod jack to RCA jack it runs usually about $10-25.00 also you can purchase a FM transmitter kit for about the same price but sound quality is not as good so my suggestion is go for rca converter and hook it up to audio input in back of dvd player or stereo for best quality.

Connection


Your TV should have an audio output which are red and white colored jacks, labeled audio out, on the back of your TV. There are also be the same inputs on the home theater system. You would have to buy an RCA cable which is inexpensive. You can then connect the TV from the audio out jack to the AUX 1 or 2 jack on the rear of your home theater system. Then select the AUX 1 or 2 input option (the one you hooked the cable into in the rear) on the home theater system, and you should be in business.

No sound from tv through unit


You may have to enter TV menu and see if you have a AUDIO setup option, some TV`s you have to enable TV AUDIO OUTPUT, this cancels the built in tv speakers and engages the AUDIO OUTPUT jacks on the TV

CONNECTING MY TV TO MY STEREO


Make sure the output in your tv menu is set to external speakers. Any digital optical cable, or RCA jacks hooked up properly from the TV's out put to the receivers input should work just fine. Take your time, retrace your steps, and make sure each cable is in the correct input/output. And make sure the receiver and TV are on the proper settings. Good Luck, and thanks for using FixYa!

No sound when using the TV


1- Find the two audio out female RCA jacks on your tv. One is red one is white. Some older tvs may not have any, if so you are out of luck.
2- Purchase a stereo patch cord (male x male RCA) long enough to reach the LG's Subwoofer.
3- Connect the red and white plugs to the tv output and connect the red and white plugs to the "Aux In" female RCA jacks on the subwoofer.
4- Select stereo input for sound on the LG's user interface.

You will be able to upconvert the stereo input to various surrond modes by studying the control manual.
