Hi,here is my simple solution... To listen your TV on your samsung ps wx30 surround sound system ,
** you need to connect "Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" or "HDMI out " of your TV unit ** to "AUX input "
or "TV" OR "Any input" of your dvd player or "Optic Cable input" or "HDMI input" ** than just switch to
respective mode on dvd player corresponding your RCA or Optic connection or HDMI .. . There you go..Your TV sound is on the dvd player By this means whatever you watch on the TV (tuner, satellite , Xbox , etc..) ,it's sound will come thru your dvd player.
Hope this helps!..if more he?p requires pls let me know.. Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :)
Hi, I can help. First of all it's not as hard as it looks. the last thing you will do is plug it in by the way ( this prevents any popping noises while hooking it up. We'll start with speakers, standard table lamp wire will do fine ( sometimes called zip cord) it is also usually polarized for you ( one of the two sides of the wire will be a little ribbed and the other will be smooth ) this makes it a little easier to keep speaker polarity correct( i usually go with the ribbed wire as hot) always make sure the positive(+) on the receivers speaker terminals are connected to the same on the speaker( the stereo and speakers will almost for sure be marked with red and black to help with that-red being + and black -) Next hook up something to the antenna terminal on the stereo for radio reception-the terminals will be marked 75ohm and 300ohm, if you do not have an antenna for this or don't listen to much radio not to worry, I find just a simple little wire bread tie with some of the plastic end stripped off works nicely for most local stations ( you will know when any antenna you try is connected by the fact you will stop getting just static.) Next connect whatever you want to listen to through your stereo, example: a dvd player can be connected with the dvd players " AUDIO OUT " going into the receivers connection for dvd (these are called rca connections-and are typically red and white plugs at both ends) also if listening in surround mode you can hook up a single rca cable to the orange connector on back of dvd player ( marked maybe as " DIGITAL PCM/LPCM " or simply " COAXIAL"the other end goes into the same connector on back of receiver. If no orange jack you may have a squarish looking connection called simply " DIGITAL IN " there may be a few of these, ones for satellite,cable,t.v. etc. These are called a "TOSLINK" connector, they are a rather stiff fiber optic cable with squarish ends that plug into the source with the surround sound output ( example when dvd player is playing the toslink jack will be lit up a little with a reddish light) same with a tv's digital output as well as cable/sat box's digital out. so that about wraps it up-just connect what you want to listen to with either rca cables or the toslink connectors-output of device being played to input on back of stereo. And if you need to connect up a recorder of any kind hook up recorders "LINE INPUT" to receivers " REC OUT" rca jacks. Thanks for choosing FixYa, I hope this helps,write back to let us know how we did or if we can be of more assistance. Good luck, Prodzilla
its old model, will not pass hd video, good only for audio. Connections depend on your equipment. If you use a cable box to watch tv, connect cable box audio out rca connectors (red and white), by an audio rca cable, to audio TV input on the back of the receiver. Now when you swith your receiver to TV input you get sound from cable box trough your speakers.
If you use DVD player: connect audio out of the player to dvd audio input of the receiver. Switch the receiver to DVD input, you have sound from DVD.
zone 2 will only work with analog sources so if your dvd, cable and other devices are connected via HDMI, that alone won't work. What you need to do is hook up RCA (red and white) cables from the dvd player to dvd in of the receiver and same thing for your satellite box (and other sources.) no need to change any setting on the receiver. This way, the HDMI will take care of your main room speakers and the RCA will feed your zone 2 speakers.
The physical TV is at best a lo-fi 2-channel analog audio device. Think about it this way: Most high-end users use video monitors (no audio or speakers on board). So where does the TV-related audio come from....
It comes from the same place the TV would get it - cable, satellite, dvd, blu-ray, vcr...
So why run audio from any of those sources to the TV and back to the receiver (whose specialty is
I imagine your cable or satellite box has Digital and Analog Audio Outputs. The receiver needs a digital input for anything multi-channel. Select the highest-quality one that's compatible with your HTR and use it for the audio feed.
You have one coaxial and one optical digital input. I imagine your (unnamed) DVD player has one or both types and your cable box has one or both types. If you have one of each type you're golden. Run each to its compatible input on the HTR.
If they're both optical, you have to make a choice, but if they're both coaxial only you could get away with using an RCA Y-cable to bring them both in to the one input. Then for each to work you would have to make sure the other device is turned off.
The video capabilities of this unit are limited to Composite (single RCA cable). Run one from the DVD and one from the cable box Video Out to the conveniently labeled inputs that match them.
I have no idea what your TV/Monitor has for inputs. If possible run the absolute highest quality video [HDMI, Component (3 RCA cables) or Composite (single RCA cable)] to the TV's inputs along with an RCA pair from DVD and Cable Ananlog Audio Out to the corresponding Audio In's on the TV. This way you can watch and hear TV from its own speakers without needing the Yamaha fired up.
Hook up Composite / Component Monitor Out wire from receiver to TV video input because receiver will not change analog input into HDMI You need to connect receiver and TV through analog video terminals as above. Actually you are expecting that receiver will convert DVD player and Xbox analog video input into digital HDMI signal for TV and This is incorrect.
Hello, you can verify that your receiver is working or not. When you are playing a dvd unplug the audio RCA plugs (red and white) from the back of the Sony dvd player. Touch the tips of each of the RCA plugs with your fingertip. You will hear a buzz sound coming from the speaker associated with the plug if the receiver is working\ i.e. touch the red RCA plug tip and the right speaker will hum...touch the white tip and the left speaker will hum or buzz. This will not hurt your system or speaker. If you do not hear the hum turn the volume to 3 or so and wet your fingertip and tap the tip of the RCA connectors. You will hear "pops" coming from the respected channel. I believe your cd\dvd is at fault. Good Luck!
For Stereo Mode (Front L & R Speaker), you must plug RCA cables (match up red and white) from Output on DVD player to DVD Input on the back of the receiver. Then with speaker wire, run from receiver speaker output (Front Speakers) to designated speaker (make sure + and - match up to both input and output).
As for hooking up surround sound, I'm currently trying to figure that one out with just using the L, R and Center. I don' t want wire running all over the place just for rears.
Hope this helps
