Can't get surround sound when watching normal tv,


Have you looked at the manual?

The specific product you're inquiring about is not showing in your post. Name the make

HDMI can be either an input or an output. You don't specify what the HDMI is carrying and to what or from what?

TV-related multichannel audio almost always originates with a digital program source which today os usually the Cable Box. THAT would be a good place to start with the attempt to get 'surround sound' after you've decided how to use the digital input on your unnamed HTS.

I have rca home theater system rtd215 plays dvds fine but no sound when im watching tv programs i have no cable box just the jacks on my tv [52 projection screen phillips] and i tried hooking them into the...


This reson you are not hearing any "TV AUDIO" through your RCA surround system would be due to your tv sound output not being connected to an audio input into your surround system. You can hear DVDs,CDs and radio possibly mp3 if connected, as these are built in to the amplifier which the speakers connect to.
If the tv has a Line out (via phono plugs) and NOT via headphone out, connect it to an audio input on the RCA surround system. If the RCA has no other available inputs, well....there ain't a lot you can do but watch CSI with the sound from the TV and then Star Wars (for example) through the TV and Surround system.

TO GET SURROUND SOUND I NEED RCA CABLES WERE DO THEY GO ON MY TV


You won't get surround FROM your TV. It's just a lightshow device with bare minimum speakers and audio chops.

Get the TV-related audio from the same source IT IS WATCHING - Cable/SAT/DVD/BluRay/Game. Digitally, if possible. Otherwise you'll just get stereo analog sound.

Samsung HT Q 100 surround sound only works with DVD


Look on the subwoofer. Does it have an upmix switch? If not, you cannot upmix the stereo to all speakers. You can also check your TV menu options to see if it has the upmix feature (or similar).

Surround sound hookup


Hook your satelite receiver to your TV. Then run from your TV audio out to your surround sound system. This should make your surround sound system work with anything your TV is playing.

Surround sound ok whilst playing dvd but not working for tv


On your Sagem TV you should have two RCA ouputs (red and white connection usually marked ouput) ) Connect these to the input on the surround system using the interlink cable.

You should then be able to hear the sound from the TV by changing the SOURCE on the home cinema remote.

Better still if you have a digital out on your TV use that instead.

Surround sound hookup question?


It looks like all you'll need to do is hook up audio out from DirecTV to audio in on the surround sound system. Sony has an interesting hookup recommendation guide on the product support site:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-home.pl?mdl=DAVC700&LOC=3

That should give you the connection options. The short answer, though, is to connect the best audio out from DirecTV to an audio in on the surround sound and then choose that option in the surround sound system when you want to watch TV.

CAN ONLY GET THE SURROUND SOUND TO WORK WITH DVD'S NOT WITH NORMAL TV OR SKY?? WHY??


You should have a AUDIO menu in which you can simulate true surround sound. This should be in your owners manual. Your DVD is recorded in dolby surround sound that's why on your set it will be reproduced as recorded. I hope Samsung is using a ATSC tuner in that model?

This is possible a number of ways. Depending on the type of TV you have, it may have audio out on the back of the TV. This will be two jacks that are RED and WHITE, and it should be labeled "TV OUT" or "OUT". Use an RCA audio cable and connect these two jacks to the TV jacks of the same colors on your surround sound unit. If your TV does NOT have audio out jacks, you can still accomplish this by use of a VCR. Just run your main TV input [coaxial cable from antenna or cable/dish] into the VCR, and then out to your TV as normal. Leave your TV on channel 3 [or 4, or whichever channel the VCR uses]. If you're using a regular antenna, you can switch channels on the VCR. If you're using cable, you should be able to just change channels on the cable box. This will give you surround sound from an older TV without audio outs. But most larger and newer TVs have an audio out jack on the back. Hope this helps!
