Question about Audio & Video Receivers

Open Question

I have a Sharp LC-26SH12U that I am trying to hook up with a Durabrand STS96 home theater/DVD system. The DVD function has decent sound coming through, but the fly in the ointment is getting broadcast television to the system. The cable is up and active, all the hook-ups are as per manual, and I am getting ready to smash this garbage to junk. What can I do?

If it has a audio input connection on the back then you can connect from your TV or cable box (as long as it has audio output connections) to the back of the stereo. Durabrand being an inexpensive brand, it may not have some of the frills that you'd find on other units.

marvidson,
With the NAD model that you have and its lack of component or HMDI switching, the only way is to connect your system, sort of, backwards.

The only way to do it is to connect your digital cable box and blueray player directly to the tv, then the audio output from the tv to one of the video inputs on the NAD. The NAD has digital coaxial and toslink inputs so if your tv has one of them as an output, that would give you the best sound to the NAD. If your tv does not have either of those outputs, then you will be limited to the composite outputs (red and white) but that will still give you good sound.

Also, depending on the digital output to input configuration, you could possible find a converter online.

What kind of ports and cables are you using?
Is there an option on your TV to output sound?
*I have a samsung HDTV and for me to hook up a surround sound i have to go into my TV options and go to audio and select "Output : TV
: Aux speaker system"

Are you sure your cord is working properly? The easiest way to bundle it all together is an HDMI cable.

Is the 42lh3000 TV compatible with the ht805sh home cinema system for getting TV sound through the speakers? i have it set up and works fine with DVD sound but i cant get the TV sound to come through it?


I looked at your two products and I'm not quite sure how you have it hooked up but, your TV has a total of 3 HDMI inputs and, a digital optical out, which means, that all your video componenets, DVD cable/sat, if you have, should be able to be connected directly to your TV. You can use the TV's menu to chosse what you want to watch. The TV also has a digital optical out, which you would connect to the digital optical in of the home theater. You would use one setting(sat, aux, whatever, depending on theater inputs), and when have "TV" selected in your menu, you should have sound through theater. You may have to turn volume down or mute for this to work. If you have any questions, let me know.

I just bought a Coby home theater system 5.1 surround sound dvd/cd/ player model#765. I've got it all hooked up but I have one problem, when I want to listen to my tv stations through the home theater...


Hi - Your Home Theater System and your TV should have separate volume controls. You should be able to control each individually. Start by checking the volume level on your TV with your HTS shut-off. Turn the volume on your TV all the way down to 0.

Next, turn your HTS on and check the volume level there. Is it still loud? If so, try turning the volume down on your HTS. That should do the trick. If its not loud then you know you can control the volume on either the HTS or the TV. If this answer does not help, then please write us back with a little more detail. Thanks.

Hi, Hiss soundare from RCA cables.You need to reconnect again,but using a different cable for connection.

And also sometimes home theater acts that way during test mode, Check the manual and you will see how to set the home theater to see the mode that will allow all speakers to work. It's a normal thing when connecting a newly bought home theater.It the settings.Use the manual.

Take care.

Hook up


Karri, I do not have the photo of the back, but attached is a general wiring diagram for any Audio-video Home theater system. If you have a Home Theater Receiver, then hook it up as the diagram. If not, hook it up per the comments in the diagram. This is how I hooked up my ONKYO HT system with my SONY Combo DVD recorder and my Mitsubishi TV. One thing to note on Combos, is that the VCR Tape section will not play through the High Definition connections (HDMI, and Digital Audio). You have to use the older method of Audio-Video (AV) cables or the Co-axial antenna cables. You can ask more questions if there is any confusions. Hope this helps you. Good luck.
