Help! Surround Sound problems!

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.

In most cases the TV is used just as an input device, and they frequently have no output jacks. Usually the TV is hooked up as part of a home theater system, and is used as a video monitor while the sound is taken care of by a receiver or amplifier. The sound comes from the video source (DVD player, set-top box, etc.). Some TV sets have audio output available, but it sounds like yours doesn't. If you want to have surround sound, you'll need to invest in a receiver and speakers.

Audio output on TV


Sounds like you have it hooked up properly. Be aware that if there is not a digitally encoded signal for surround sound [they don't always do that] you simply won't have surround sound. Usually there is a mode in your receiver/amplifier that will allow you to simulate surround sound. An example of that would be "theater" or "hall" sound. Try it with a DVD known to have surround sound encoding [most of them do] and see if it works that way. If it doesn't then check your owners manual for information about how to make sure that feature is actually turned "on".

I am trying to hook a surround sound up to tv. Can't get sound out of surround sound when watching tv but can when playing dvd


if you have a pair of phono connections (red and white) on the rear marked audio out, connect them to the aux in on the surround system and select the aux output on the surround to get the sound from the tv.
failing that connect to scart 2 as this should give audio out via the scart cable and select tv on the suround to get sound.

no, there's no firmware upgrade that you can do on the tv. the reason for that is because you are sending digital sound to the tv with hdmi from xbox 360,and when you have rca cables connecting your tv and surround sound, the rca cables provide stereo sound. what you need to do if you want to use hdmi is connect optical cable from tv orxbox 360/ or tv to your surround sound to get digital sound, and it will sound better digital sound.

Make sure the RCA cable is going from an audio OUT on TV or DirecTV box to a red/white (non-digital) audio IN on surround sound or home theater system.

Surround sound hook up


if you are trying to hook up your stereo to your tv here is how it goes you go out and buy an audio video cable which are just four ports two on one end and two on another you have your stereo system on aux which means other for either movies,games,etc. and then if your tv has a audio video input you put two into the tv one for the audio and the other for the video hopefully your tvs or movies,etc should be coming out from your stereo rather than your tv
