The following are the best I can do without specifics re: your TV and other TV-related equipment.

Since a TV without an antenna is rarely the source of any programming it is best to feed the receiver the best sound available from the device where it originates - cable / sat / DVD / BluRay / games. Your receiver probably has plenty of inputs to accomodate al of these. I also run the video directly to my TV, which has several video inputs, from each source because IT deserves the best unadulterated video.

If you have a cable box and want the best sound, get it directly and digitally from the cable box and run it to the receiver. Then leave the TV's speakers off for critical viewing with good sound.

Can't get sound thru my stereo and stereo speakers


If it is just the sound from the computer then if you have windows look for the little speaker icon in the bottom right corner of the screen, right click this, select "Sounds" then select playback (while connected to the tv) and chose the tv as the output device (set to default).

If on the other hand the issue is with the tv at all times then try going into the menu settings of the tv and looking for the various sound options. Possibly the remote control will have an audio button that scrolls through various audio options (two circles followed by roman numerals?).

Hope this is of some help.

Hooking your PS2 Up To your Stereo
Just got a PS2 and trying to hook it up to your TV, stereo or both? Here are instructions to help you get everything working smoothly.

First, some basic cable definitions. These are pretty much standard for ANY system or stereo you ever get, so it's good to learn them.

RED CABLE - right channel for stereo sound (get it - Red Right?)
WHITE CABLE - left channel for stereo sound
YELLOW CABLE - video signal

Your PS2 plays games and plays DVDs. So it is generating signals that go OUT of that box. You want those signals to go IN to your TV. The most simple way to do this is to simply plug them into your TV, if you have no stereo system hooked up and nothing else attached to your TV. Most TVs have stereo left in, stereo right in, and video in. Most in fact have them all color coded with the above colors. So all you do is plug the cables in and turn the TV on. Some TVs have to be set to channel 2 or 3 to know to take the signal in from the Video In line, but your manual would tell you if that was the case. Here is a diagram of the straight connection.

I would really recommend hooking a stereo system into your TV, though. The PS2 has INCREDIBLY stereo sound and you really miss out on a lot if you just have the sound coming out of your TV speakers!! Especially if you play DVDs through your PS2, you want that sound coming out of the stereo system. So in this case you would send the video to your TV, so your TV can show the picture. You then send your audio (sound) to the stereo, so it can play the sound. Most stereo systems have multiple input spots so you can plug in your CD player, your tape player, your record player, etc. So just choose an input spot that isn't taken yet. Here's an image of that connection -

So let's say you don't have a tape player and therefore plug the red cable into "Tape Input R" and plug the white cable into "Tape Input L". To make the sound play, you would now press the "Tape" selection button on your stereo so it played the music coming through the tape channel. Since that's where your PS2 is plugged in, that is the sound that will come out of your speakers.

When I play a DVD in the system I can only get the surround sound out of the speakers but no voices. If I play a CD or hook it up to my tv everything is ok.I have tried a number of DVD's and all have the...


sounds like you need to surround modes. There is usually a Stereo, Dolby, DTS, "virtual surround", 4-speaker mode etc..
When you play a CD or connect to TV it likely defaults to playing stereo or virtual surround.

With real surround, almost all of the voices are coming from the center-channel speaker (normally placed closest to the TV).

Also, check to make sure the center channel is connected properly.

Getting stereo speakers to work with flat panel tv


if you hook the low-level audio-out from the tv to an input to the stereo unit, whatever you play on tv will send audio to surround/stereo reciever unit. look on back of tv for red &white AUDIO OUTPUT terminals. plug red/white audio cables from tv to the back of your stereo & plug into audio input of an open source on stereo (tv/video,aux. in,etc.) good luck!

Can't get the surround sound to play the rear speakers and small front speaker


Sounds like it's just in 2 channel stereo mode, only 2 speakers working out of 5 and a sub, look for a selector switch for switching to 5.1 surround, as far as the no video problem try replacing the cable for the video connection.

Surround Sound Not Playing For TV Programs


Greetings jdm12,

I can understand your problem, I have some what of the same issues with my home theater setup when watching events. One of the only suggestions I can make is adjusting the "Dolby Pro Logic II Mode". After reviewing your owners manual it appears you should be able to change the mode by pressing the PL II Mode button found in the lower keypad on your remote. It appears the options you should have are Music - Cinema - Pro Logic - Matrix - Stereo. You may want to try Music or Stereo when watching your events. In Stereo setting it should provide sound out of the front speakers and sub-woofer only. In Music, there are more processing that is done so you could hear more then just the front speakers.

I hope this makes your next your next PPV Party a big hit!

You will need a Component Video Cable
Connect the Red Green and Blue Connections from the TV to the Bose.

if your audio is coming from the TV, also connect stereo audio from the TV's audio out to the "TV" input on the bose.

if you want to hook up other devices (VCR, BluRay, etc) the video will go directly to the TV and audio will go directly to the Bose
