Question about Emerson EWF2004 20" TV
How do we hook up our Sony surround sound to our digital box and/or our TV? (TV is just an Emerson with the three ports on the front). We have sound on our playstation/dvd player, but cant seem to configure it to work with the digital cable box.
Since you have a surround sound system, you probably should just bypass the TV's audio.
Connect the red/white plugs from your digital cable box to one of the inputs on your surround sound system but not the Phono input unless the Phono input lists something aside from Phono, like Aux/Phono or CD/Phono.
Connect the S-Video or composite (yellow) video plug from your digital cable box directly to the S-Video or composite (yellow) video jack on your TV.
If your digital cable box does not have a S-Video (4 pins and flat rectangular hole) or Composite (yellow RCA jack) jack and only has the screw/push-on type cable with the pin in it, then leave the remaining connections as-is.
Now switch your surround sound system to the input you connected the red and white plugs to and turn on your TV. You should see picture from the TV, but hear audio from the surround sound system.
