Install home theater insignia
How are you connecting the devices?
If you have used the cable box audio out (RCA) to the audio in (the ones just right of the digital coax audio out and the S-video out) on the home theater system, make sure that you have selected the correct Source. (Use the Source button on the front of the system to select AV1 or AV2. This toggles between AV1, AV2, tuner and DVD. It's the right-most button below the display screen. Alternatively, use the Tuner/Aux button (second from the bottom on the left) on the remote.) Note with this connection, the video source cable should go to the TV directly. Unless it is a composite video signal. Then connect the RCA video out (REC out). Make sure that the audio digital output is off. Press Setup/Exit (just above and to the right of the arrow keys) on the remote. Go to the audio menu (press the left arrow key twice) and press OK. The first item in the list is the digital output and should be blank unless you are feeding the audio to another system.
Next try a different audio cable and check that your speaker wires are all connected. Check that the cable box is getting power and a signal from the provider. Connect it to the TV to recheck. If it isn't, make sure that the cables didn't come loose on the box while you were making the connections to add the system.
If you have a newer cable box with HDMI or digital audio out, these most be connected differently. A digital to analog audio converter will work with the second option. For an HDMI connection, connect that cable to the TV, then connect the TVs analog audio out to the NS-H2002. Then go to the Audio menu of the TV and turn on the external audio and turn off the internal speakers. (If your TV has a headphone jack as the only analog out, then this step may not be needed. However, you'll need a 3.5 mm to RCA stereo cable or adapter.)
Check if the audio works with another source (like a DVD). If another external source works, then it's the cable box or the connections to it. If no external sources work but you can here a DVD play, it's probably the input jacks on the system.
I hope this helps. Please add a comment with more information about the cable box outputs and the TVs inputs and outputs if you need additional assistance.
