    im sending the audio signal through the TV audio out put and into the home ausio system out put as the only imputs on the system seem to be in the subwoofer for the satelite speakers. IM noe sure gow to get around this problem as there is no indication form both Curtis, or Samsung in how to rectfy this issue in the manuals.

    I really am greatful of your time, and I think that you are right when you say that this is a glorified DVD player with speakers, as i cant get around the problem.

    I have tried all imputs both on the amlpifier/woofer and on the Samsung tv, and i just get the same set volume that cannot be adjusted, no matter what way round i use the cables (inpu/output

    This is turning out to be very frustrating, and seems quite farscical that i cant get around this.

    again many thanks

Drawing audio from a TV has its limitations. Refer to the TV's manual regarding volume control of the audio OUTPUT.

If you MUST go this way, I'd still suggest using a Fixed output so you can turn the TV's speakers down or off without killing the signal to the Curtis. (TV's are on the low end of the audio food chain and actually will degrade rather than improve it.)

You could get the BEST possible TV-related audio directly and digitally from the source you're watching.

    You (still) don't specify how you're accessing the TV audio. EVERY component in an audio system usually sends a FIXED volume to the receiver by default. You're also not saying the volume is unusable. Are we flogging a non-issue?

    Let's start over.



    This component is designed as the sole audio and video source in a Home Theater and has NO inputs for either audio or video. So it's a gloried DVD player with speakers.



    Your work-around of slotting the TV audio into the 2-channel input on the subwoofer/amplifier appears to be bypassing the volume controls (*) in the electronics unit so I imagine it's quite loud.



    Your TV (Samsung?) should have a variable output setting or there is no solution using these components alone.



    * Volume controls don't amplify a signal, they attentuate it.

I have a samsung 6350. It was working fine. Now I have no volume on tv channels (satellite) but volume works for the smart features like netflix??


If there is no sound comes with on-air programs, and there is only picture, check the settings. That is, if the transmission system at your country is PAL, and you have set the system at your TV to NTSC or SECAM, there will be no sound. Check it. Refer its user manual for details. It will be best to set this option [color system option] to Auto. If so, the TV will adjust the system by itself.

Sharp Aquos LC46lE700UN How do I adjust the audio. Manual says that the Output Select to Fixed, but it still does not allow me to adjust the audio


If the RCA audio out put is set to 'FIXED' it means the signal at the RCA jacks will not be controlled by the Volume control of the TV, but the TV speakers will still be controlled by the TV volume control, if you want to make the RCA AUDIO out to be adjustable by the TV volume control, you will have to set it to 'VARIABLE'.

My S Video from laptop works with TV however no sound on TV


No, S-Video is video only. Look for the Audio output jack on your computer (usually its a lime green earphone hole). you will need a 3.5mm to RCA Stereo output wire, and attach the RCA audio to the AUX input of your TV, and then hook it to the Earphone/Speaker output jack on your computer. Then you will have to set your computer volume at about 75% (not all the way up, but more than halfway up). Then you can adjust the volume on the tv set. (just fyi, if you have bass boosting on the COMPUTER, turn that off, as well as any Equalizer or BASS/TREBEL booster. Set your mixers and boosters to NORMAL for best sound. not doing so could produce popping or scratching in the sound from the TV, also, if you have your PC volume higher than 75% that can also cause popping)

Samsung lns4041dx/xaa


Same problem with my set. The volume was either fully up, or fully down (usually down), and other controls didn't work- like I couldn't access the menus and could not adjust the width of the screen/aspect ratio.

I lived with it for about six weeks, then took the back off the TV. Just now it seems to be fixed, but I don't know if it will last.

I disconnected the wire leading to the channel up/down, volume up/down and source board, turned on the tv, turned it back off, reconnected the cable, and everything seems fine now.

Speaker noise


Check the audio "out" settings on the TV
Modern LCD TVs, unlike older televisions, have additional settings for audio out, which could effect the volume being sent out the AV out jacks ... and sometimes a setting for sending the audio through the HDMI cable, which it sounds like you are not using ... so you don't want that enabled ...
If you can disable the volume control on the TV through the TV's settings that would be best.

It's also possible you have a bad cable, but if it works with another TV probably not that ...

Good luck!

Sound Issue


Check the cable box volume. Most boxes allow you to adjust the volume from the box to the TV, and most likely it's gotten turned down. Use the "Volume" control on the cable box to bring the level back up. (Unless the box remote has been set up for RCA, it controls the box volume. Once you get the volume back up, follow the cable provider's instructions for setting the remote to control an RCA. Then the volume control will function correctly.)

Try connecting the red and white audio cords to your system from your cable box/satellite receiver instead of your tv. Worked for me.
