How to hook up a tv to a reciever??

I have a 9 year old tv that doesn't have any inputs or outputs (like the red, white, yellow ones) in the back of it, besides the input for cable. How would i go about hooking this kind of tv up to a reciever?

If unit does not have in/output jacks, you can't hook up amps to it directly. However, you can use the cable input from VCR or VTR , then patch in A/V equipment to them. Make sure to switch TV to cable in

I have a pioneer vsx-405 rds, how do I connect it to my smart tv because the reciever does not have an HDMI port?


The VSX only has analog, composite video outputs. (Yellow jacks on back panel.) You can get a video converter that will support the connection:

You may also have an Aux., non-HD video input on your TV that you could connect to the receiver. Check the manual for your TV or look for the red-white-yellow input plugs.

Hello,i have a new sony BX2D Bravia tv for my son and a new PS3 , ive found an old immaculate amp/receiver Sony STRDB940 I used to use ,how can i connect it all together so my son can have great sound for...


Just plug the Red,Yellow,White into the receiver in one of the inputs. Doesn't really matter which one they are labeled just to keep it easy to keep track of.But for ease lets do video one. There should be two sets within the video one input. Put the PlayStation on the set to the right and then run the identical red white yellow from the tv to the set on the left within the video 1 box. Tune your reciever to the Video 1 channel and then the tv to what ever input you have it on probably video 1 as well and your son will be good to go.

I have direct satalite tv VR 6050 kenwood surround sound tuner vizio tv, dvd player, and a vcr, Im confused on how its hook up and what order should it go something like sat in to sat box to kewood...


that reciever is not going to carry a hi definition video signal, it doesnt have either hdmi or component video inputs.

you can still use it, but if you run the picture through the reciever, it will have poor quality.

heres how you are supposed to hook it up:

find the single,m yellow video jack on your sattelite box, and hook that up to the "tv" video input, then hook the laft and right audio outputs from the cable box into the "tv" audio left and right inputs on the receiver. hook up the dvd player and vcr in the same manner, using "dvd" and "VCR" (if labeled as such) inputs on the reciever.

finally, send the tv video and audio outputs to the composite video in and left/right audio inputs on the tv. the video will be running through the reciever, and when you use the reciever to switch the sound source, the video will also be changed. you could get better picture quality if you ran the video directly to the tv using component (seperate green, red and blue) outputs/inputs, and bypassing the reciever on the video end, but then you would have to change inputs on the tv AND reciever to change from your cable box to your dvd player.

If you are gonna connect the x-box to the yamaha directly you would have to connect the red and white cables to one of the inputs on the reciever and the yellow to the video on your tv.

Help with AG-D9320


These recievers are prime for running surround sound through you TV. It all depends on your TV service, Now if you have a cable box from Dish network, this is the easiest in the world, all you need to look for is an output labeled "OPTICAL OUT". It's a small port with probably a small glowing red light coming out of it. You'll need to buy and optical cable and plug it in there, and then run the other end to the optical input of your surround sound reciever, and then assign a video input to that digital audio signal. It's the best audio you can get by far.

Now if you down't have that, it is still very easy. Find you reciever look for a video input and plug an audio cable in(Red and White cable). Plug the other end into your TV's audio output, a red and white output that is probably labeled audio out, plug that in, switch TV to whatever you are viewing, turn on the reciever to whichever input you assigned and there you go.

If your TV doesn't have an audio output, then you need to go to your cable or sattleite box, and find the audio output, the R/W(Red & white), and run that out to your reciever, the sound won't come through the tv unless you run a second audio out from the reciever into you tv's audio input on the same signal your picture is coming from.

I hope that helps.
