You can not connect a turn table in any other input source other than Phono input my friend. turntable has got very weak signal thathas to be pre-amplified before getting a signal just right for a CD/Tape DVD input. you require a phono am to get an audio signal.

How to connect samsung ps50c55og to sony dav s500 home theatre system


You need a set of normal rca cables (red.yellow,white) and another single rca cable..
OPTION 1 :If you have a digital satellite receiver, Connect the 3 colour cables to the corresponding colour jacks on VIDEO 2 of your dvd player to corresponding colour jacks on the VIDEO OUT Of your digital satellite receiver...Connect the single stand alone rca cable to MONITOR OUT on your player to the VIDEO IN input of your tv..

OPTION 2 STRAIGHT TO TV: connect the 3 colour cables directly to the corresponding colour jacks on the SIDE of the tv...Connect the single stand alone rca cable to MONITOR OUT on your player to the VIDEO IN input of your tv..

OPTION 3 IF YOUR PLAYER HAS AN OPTICAL INPUT: if this is the case you can just connect a single optical cable to the optical ports on your player and tv and this will enable the sound from your tv to play through your dvd player as well

DVD PLAYER to TV HOOKUP


57b6c82.jpg

Basic DVD player hookup to TV cable diagram. RCA cable (yellow) video and RCA cables (white and red) audio. This is all you need for picture and sound. If your TV only has a single RF input, then you need a RF modulator. RF modulators accept the yellow, white and red cables and output a coaxial cable to the TV single input jack. Usually the TV is tuned to channel 3 or 4 to pickup the RF modulators output.

Alternative connection options are many and include HDMI for HDTVs, component video and for sound, surround sound digital audio connection using optical or coaxial digital audio cable.

Surround sound requires a decoder such as a A/V receiver with Dolby Digital 5.1 or DTS 5.1 or more. 6 speakers connected to the A/V receiver surrounds the listener.

Bluray players will play DVDs and Bluray discs. Bluray gives you High Definition video and typically connects to a HDTV using a HDMI cable.

Can the sony bravia home theater system be surround for both dvd and tv?


Strickly speaking about the audio:

The unit has digital audio in on 1 each coaxial and digital connectors.

Most DVD players have digital audio out in either a coaxial (RCA-looking) cable or optical cable.

Consider this: your TV is not a Source of audio (or even video, if you think about it). You probably get your programming from a cable or satellite box, Its audio should be available digitally.

If your DVD and cable use DIFFERENT types of digital audio sources, you're in luck. Attach each one to its compatible input on the Bravia. If you only have two optical outputs you can only attach one at a time.

If you have only two COAXIAL digital audio sources you CAN combine them into a single digital input on the Bravia by getting an RCA-splitter cable to connect them both to the one connector. It will only work if you leave one source dormant or off at any time you're monitoring the other source, otherwise you'll have two digital 'converstions' going on with the Bravia at the same time and it won't be pretty.

Adding another device to the system


Well, if analog works for you connect the CD player's analog RCA cables to the VCR inputs.

Can you imagine why you NEED to have the TV audio coming into the receiver from the TV? Are the TV's audio system or speakers superior to the audio section of every other source of TV-related programming? We hope not. Does the TV receive any programming that the receiver can not? Maybe games. I imagaine this MIGHT justify running analog TV audio back to the receiver.

Your cable box and your DVD player have both digital and analog audio outputs. The gray area is what your TV has for audio inputs. It could survive with simple RCA analog audio in from both and none to or from the receiver. Then you could watch Lo-Fi cable and DVD's without the receiver turned on.

That would free up the TV analog audio input for other things.

I imagine your DVD player is using one of the digital inputs on the receiver. If you have one each optical and coaxial audio output among your DVD and Cable Box you could place them in the two available diigital inputs.

Now, what about the CD's digital output? For stereo music you're not likely to be able to hear any difference between it and the analog input BUT it can still be connected digitally IF it has a coaxial output. Coaxial digital inputs can be shared.

Get an RCA-splitter and join the two units entering the coaxial audio input just before they enter that connection. Either will work just fine if you TURN THE OTHER ONE OFF when you want to us it.

Ibought samsung surround sound and hooked it to the tv,but it only works when i play dvd.how can i connect to my tv so i can surround sound from tv or drem box


connect audio cables from the audio out jacks on your tv to the audio in jacks on your samsung surround. they may be labeled video 1,2 or aux. if your using a cable box the cable box may have optical or digital input jacks. your samsung surround should have a digital in jack which requires an optical cable.

"Bose Home thearter 321, CD's not playing "Unsupported Format"


You do not give much information to work with. However, if you purchase a stand alone DVD player (I have a personal weakness for Sony, and only went with the Bose because of their sound reputation) make sure it has either optical out or coaxial digital which you can connect to one of the inputs at the back. Just note that in the Bose settings you have to assign Optical to the input you are using if you use optical. Optical and Coaxial audio are digital so you will not compromise the sound quality much.

It is not clear what type of CDs you are playing whether they are copies or originals. If copies how are they being burnt to disc, etc?

Wireless headphone connection to multiple components?


Cat,    Splitting an optical output is not recommended.  In fact it would require an optical patch bay, which would be overkill. You could use the headphone output on the front of the Denon AVR3805.    Because this output is behind a door it might be a cleaner looking set up to use the optical output on the top left looking at the back of the unit.  Because those two optical outputs are labeled "optical 3 and 4" they are zone outputs, they should work without having to "map" or patch them internally. The outputs here will be controlled independently as zones from the receiver's remote.      The easiest option looks to be the analog "pre output" located in the middle of the back of the receiver.  The left-most two rca jacks you want to use are labeled "front" and are white over red.  This output will work fine.  Control of the volume will be from the headphone unit and not the receiver.

Kenwood vrs-6100 receivers optical digital


You want to receive the optical signal from the TV's built in decoder / receiver to play through your Kenwood? Maybe you need to select the digital input. The manual says:

Use the INPUT SELECTOR key (or Input Selector keys)
to select DVD, VIDEO or FRONT AUX.

2 Press the INPUT MODE key.
Each press switches the setting as follows:

1 "F-AUTO": Auto detect
("AUTO DETECT" indicator lights up)

2 "D-MANUAL": Fixed to digital input
("DIGITAL" indicator lights up)

3 "ANALOG": Fixed to analog input *
("AUTO DETECT", "DIGITAL" indicator goes off)

Also check your TV to make sure it is outputting to the optical jack.
