Hi,
First off what is the make and model of the tv? Also how is the video connected to the tv from the cable box, what kind of connection? Once I have that information I can help you troubleshoot and solve the problem.
Thank you,
Lee

    i have a pdp-504cmx pioneer plasma. It is plugged into a hd dvr cable box via an hdmi cord with an adapter at the tv plugging into the digital rgb slot. Adapter looks like printer/computer hook up.

    Hi,
    Most time the hdmi to dvi adapters don't work as as advertised. these tv's werent designed for them to be used. I would recommend picking up the adapter for the tv so you have additional inputs for the tv. Then I would use component for the video and you will get the same resolution. You can find it used on ebay for 60$ here:

I bought a freeview box, My tv has only one scart socket. how do i connect my dvd player to combine with this?


You need a video switch box, that has two video and audio inputs and a video and audio output that connects to the video and audio connections on the scart cable.
Then you can switch between the DVD player or the freeview box.
These devices are available on the Internet, use Google to search for these devices.

I cant get my blu-ray home theatre system to work when watching tv. Help please


I assume you mean for hearing TV-related audio. You don't mention any models here so generic advice is what you get.

Consider where the TV-related audio originates (Hint: it may not be the TV, but could be a Cable / SAT Box). If so, THAT is the source you need to draw audio from. Connect the highest form of whatever compatible audio output it has to your HTS and choose it when you want to watch TV. Connect the basic audio from the Box to the TV if you want to skip using the HTS for sound.

I just bought a samsung home theater in a box system, model Ht-D5500. And i also have a hd cable box. i was wondering how can i connect my cable box up so that i get audio from the speakers instead of the...


There are two ways of connecting to get cable TV audio from your Home Theater System.
1) If your HD cable box has a digital audio out ( either optical or coaxial ) you can connect this to the Samsung Home Theater Systems digital input. While watching a TV channel scroll through the Samsungs input ( source ) selector till you hear the sound. Remember to mute the TV sound while you are doing this.Most probably it will be the CBL/SAT input or Video AUX.
2) If your HD box does not have digital audio out you can connect the Red & White audio out of the same to your Samsungs Aux or TV or Video audio inputs . Ignore the yellow socket and connect only the Red and White audio inputs.For getting Video through the TV connect the HD box to TV via HDMI cable or connect the Yellow video out to the TV's Yellow video in. I am sure it is already connected .

My television does not have an audio output so i connected the rs 110 to my cable box and it works fine...however i also have a dvd player connected to the tv video input and for some reason i cannot hear...


You cannot hear the audio from the DVD player because your headphones are connected directly into the cable box. I'm assuming that your DVD does not route through your cable box, thus the audio has no way of getting to your RS 110's. Also, changing the channel on the TV has no effect on the cable box, thus it won't alter than audio.
What you need to do:
  1. Look on the cable box to see if there is an option for AUDIO in (should be a pair of red and white RCA plugs)
  2. You want to run an RCA cable from the AUDIO OUT of the DVD player to the AUDIO IN of the cable box
  3. Then select the Auxillary input from the cable box and you should be able to hear the DVD
Alternatively you can run both DVD audio and video through the cable box
  1. Look for DVD IN on the cable box
  2. Connect the audio/video cables from the DVD player to the cable box
  3. To watch a DVD, switch to the DVD input on the cable box
Alternatively you can run the cable box through the DVD player
  1. There may be inputs for AUDIO and VIDEO in on the back of the DVD player
  2. You want to connect the outputs of the Cable box into the back of the DVD player
  3. You can then select the input on the DVD player to control whether you see/hear the cable or DVD

I am trying to hook up my cable box so i can watch tv.


At the cable box input, connect the cable (probably labeled "Cable In" or "Signal In").

Depending on the cable box model and available inputs on your TV, connect one of the following (listed in descending order of video quality). Colored phono plugs must match the colors of the plugs on each end.:

  • HDMI (a single rectangular connector at each end - sometimes you need to connect the Audio separately with a two - line cable with red and white phono plugs).
  • YPbBr, AKA Component (Cable with Red, Blue and Green phono plugs, plus a separate Red and White cable set for Audio).
  • S-video (a single round connector and separate Red and White audio cables).
  • Composite (Yellow video cable plus Red and White audio cables, usually sold as a single set).
  • RF out on the cable box connects to ANT or Cable In on the TV with a coax cable.
The various options are always grouped in some manner on both the Cable box and the TV. On the TV, note which input set you use, for example, "Component 1". This is the input you will select to watch whatever channel you select on the cable box.

An unused output on the cable box can go to a video recorder. Some cable boxes may permit setting up two different channels for this purpose; others will only put out the signal from one channel at a time on all outputs.

You may, if you prefer, connect the audio cable from the cable box to a stereo receiver instead of the TV. Usually people connect the audio to the TV, then connect another audio cable from "Audio Out" or "Monitor Out" on the TV to the stereo receiver. That way the sound is from whatever video source is currently selected, and the TV remote control can be used to set the volume. TV sets with this option usually have a setting to turn off the internal speakers so you hear only the external stereo speakers.

I hooked it up the way the manual said and it doesnt work


Try whatever applies best below, in order...

Cable Box optical Digital Audio to Digital Audio In. (This brings TV-related multi-channel and normal audio into the receiver so you can hear it over the speakers. Turn TV volume OFF.

The cable box probably has a pair of stereo Audio Out RCA jacks. Run those directly to the TV so you can watch and hear cable programming over the TV's speakers without having to turn the system on. Turn TV volume UP.

Depending on your TV's Video In capabilities, use the Cable Box HDMI, Component (Red, Blue and Green), or Composite Video (single Yellow associated with the Audio Out) directly attached to the TV.

What outlets do I hook up to on the reciever and the tv for it to play on regular tv stations


Cable Box optical Digital Audio to Coby Digital Audio In. (This brings TV-related multi-channel and normal audio into the Coby so you can hear it over the speakers. Turn TV volume OFF.

The cable box probably has a pair of stereo Audio Out RCA jacks. Run those directly to the TV so you can watch and hear cable programming over the TV's speakers without having to turn the Coby on. Turn TV volume UP.

I want to connect the Audio from tv to Surrounding audio system


For connections of audio, so that you can hear all tv audio through the
surround system, connect either an optical audio cable or red & white
analog audio cables from the tv to the home theater. If you are using
optical audio, there is a plug on back of tv labeled for digital audio
output and an input on the surround sound system. If you plan on using
analog red and white, use the PROG OUT red and white output jacks on the
back of the tv to the AUX input on the home theater.

For video connections, to get HD you will need to be using either HDMI or
Component cables. HDMI is the cable that will provided 1080p signal (the
best HD signal), but if the source does not output 1080p, then your tv
will not display 1080p. Most cable boxes output at 1080i or 720p when on
HD stations. This signal still provides great picture quality, but HDMI is
not needed to get these HD signals. You can use component cables for your
cable box and the DVD player output to the tv for video. HDMI might give
you a slightly better picture quality but the signal will be the same.

To make the connection, you will want to connect from the cable box to the
tv (component or hdmi). Also from the home theater system to the tv using
hdmi or the video cables from component (red, blue, & green cables).

We hope this information is helpful to you.

Thank You,
