    I also need the 15 pin cable; BUT I was told it was a proprietary part and the only cable that would work was the one that comes w/the system from Philips! Problem is, this cable is no longer manufactured, so none of Philips suppliers have any in stock! Was yours a regular 15 pin male-to-male VGA, and did it work, sunray17? Thanks!

    Actually the cable that connects the subwoofer to the DVD is a non-VGA 15 pin cable. They are very difficult to find. A 15 pin VGA cable will not work. The VGA cable has one pin inactive, whereas the non-VGA has all 15 active. I'm still looking for a non-VGA 15 pin cable.

I have a sb wa340 active subwoofer. I have subwoofer and speakers but I don't have DVD how can I use this


So is the DVD part missing? There is a VCR / Aux input on the back but it is for audio only. There are no video inputs so if the DVD is not included in your sub/speaker system, you'll be limited to audio only. First, you'll need to connect a TV to your system using one 'Video Out' cable methods so you can see the menu for the remote control changes on the system. From here there are 2 options:
  1. Connect up a working DVD player directly to your TV using the best option available. Use the audio outputs on your TV to connect to the VCR or TV input on the system box. (Using standard RCA cables.) You may need to enable the external audio outputs on the TV. (Check the setup -> audio menus etc.)
  2. You can use this as an audio amp by connecting a RCA cord from the a DVD R/L audio outputs to the VCR-Aux input on the amp box. You will need to run a separate video feed from the DVD directly to your TV. (Select the desired input on the TV to watch a DVD.)
You'll need to do a lot of switching back and forth with multiple remotes to get everything working, but the speaker setup can be made useful if it still works.

Here is a manual for the system: http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/SCMT1.PDF

Just bought a used yamaha receiver model RXv793 do not know how to hook it up.


First do not panic by seeing all sockets in the back side of the receiver.You can connect 5 speakers and one subwoofer on the speaker A switch and maybe a second pair of stereo speakers on the B switch.All the speaker sockets have red and black terminals, so do all speakers. Just get decent cables ( You can buy a whole connection Kit if you want ) and connect the corresponding outlets to you speakers.If you have a powered subwoofer connect the subwoofer input to a socket labeled Subwoofer pre out on the RXV. You will need a RCA to RCA cable for that Next you will need a coaxial or Optic fiber cable to connect a DVD player digitally. The back of the DVD player will have a socket marked coaxial out, and so does the RXV's backside. Just link them .
Turn on the system everything should work. If you are not getting DVD sound there is small button on the RXV front panel called Digital input -- set it to auto ( keep pressing the button and it will scroll through various modes). Also remember to switch on speaker A on the front panel.

Just bought a denon, and wharfdale 9.1 speakers with no rca cables, what rca cables do i need?


What model speakers?

Didn't these things come with manuals?

Speaker connections from the Denon are typically through speaker cables (glorified lamp cord).

The Denon is not capable of driving the sub directly. The powered (?) subwoofer in your setup would presumably require an RCA cable (whatever length reaches) to feed its amplifier a bass signal from the Denon's Subwoofer Out.

This unit does not have a HDMI cable in put . Is there a cable adapter to accomplish this?


You do have a DVI input for this Dell W3000 so to connect to a box that has HDMI you will need a HDMI to DVI cable. When you connect to a cable/DVD or satellite box via HDMI/DVI you will have to run separate connectors for audio as this setup wont pass sound to the TV. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks...

Here is a link to look at the cable type you will need.

I have a Sony 46" LCD TV. I have a Direct TV HD converter box, a Sony Blu-Ray BDP-S360 Blu-Ray player, and a Pioneer DVD-Audio player connected to my Pioneer Elite Home Theater receiver.

When i play a DVD or a DVD-A on my Pioneer DVD-A player, all of my speakers work fine, but when i play a dvd on my blu-ray player, all the speakers work except my subwoofer. How can I fix this problem?

I'm trying to hookup the bose cinemate speaker system to an insignia tv, polaroid dvd player and at&t uverse cable box. I get speaker sound when watching cable, but when switching to the dvd, there's no...


how many audio input does your cinemate have? in case you only have one, you need an audio video switcher. a sample picture of what you need is on this link > http://electronicsusa.com/svs14.html find what you need, that is just for you to see what its look like. another thing is check you dvd if it has a line input - meaning it allows you to connect another source into your dvd such as vhs, cd, mp3. for for audio video - you need 3 wires (video/audio left-right), for stereo audio - 2 wires (left/right connection). some dvd player call it as line1 and line2 inputs. if you have it then you should be ok. 3rd approach, a simple audio mixer with minimum 3 inputs and 1 ouput is enough. note: last thing, check your connection interface for connection compatibility if you plan to buy audio video switcher or audio mixer. hope this help. regards, cebuwano

Need to know how to hook up to tv


Most DVD players connect using composite cables also known as RCA cables. Usually you will have a yellow port (video feed) and white port (audio feed) on the dvd player. The red lead is another audio lead to be used with units that provide stereo audio capability. Simply connect one end to the DVD unit and the oother to the TV inputs of the same color. You must use the in ports on the tv not the out ports if so equipped. Then you will have to tune the tv to the proper input that you connected to by using the input button on remote, going into the menu and changing input there, or you may have to channel the tv down past 00 to get to the inputs.
Hope this helps.

HDMI DVD units are the same except the connecting media is different therefor the inputs would be HDMI 1, HDMI 2 or DVI etc.

Don't worry about sending the TV audio to the Panasonic. Just send a digital audio signal from the cable box to the Panasonic.

DVD - Panasonic connected via HDMI
TV - Panasonic connected via HDI
cable connected to cable box and TV. But you will not really be using the cable connection to the TV (TV Tuner) since you will want HD feed from cable box through HDMI input on TV.

You aren't concerned about feeding the TV speakers because your audio will always come from the home theatre.

Note that some components don't feed audio through HDMI, in which case you will need to use optical digital audio.

Onkyo TX-SR304


Onkyo offers access to manuals at their web site. HERE is a link to the receiver line.

Personally, I'd connect the speakers to main left/right. The subwoofer to subwoofer out. The Go VIdeo unit to VCR/Video 1, the cable box to Video 2 and the video output to the Sony TV composite input. No need to connect the TV audio out to the receiver since the audio feed comes from the cable box.
