This reson you are not hearing any "TV AUDIO" through your RCA surround system would be due to your tv sound output not being connected to an audio input into your surround system. You can hear DVDs,CDs and radio possibly mp3 if connected, as these are built in to the amplifier which the speakers connect to.
If the tv has a Line out (via phono plugs) and NOT via headphone out, connect it to an audio input on the RCA surround system. If the RCA has no other available inputs, well....there ain't a lot you can do but watch CSI with the sound from the TV and then Star Wars (for example) through the TV and Surround system.

    what is the plug ins pr pb and y for

  • Ben Armstrong Jan 07, 2011

    Hello, sorry I did not get back sooner. I did not know you'd sent a furthur question. The Pr,Pb and Y connections are another form of Video output called "component". this is another way of sending the picture to a Tv/Screen. They are not INPUTs and are not related to sound in any way. They can give a higher resolution picture compared to scart or Composite (the yellow phone), but your TV has to have Component inputs (marked in the same way) for you to make use of it..
    Further to your previous question. if your mp3 player has a usb, you could use this and plug the tv audio out (if it has one) into the "Aux" input on the back

Trying to connect a sony home theatre system so that the akai television plays through the home teatre speakers. I used an hdmi cable, but the tv still only plays threough the tv.


The HDMI jacks on the TV are HDMI in. Thus to get the theater system to play the sound, you use the HDMI out from your set top box to the HDMI in of the Sony theater system and then the HDMI out of the theater system to the TV. (Connecting the HDMI in of the TV to the HDMI in of the home theater system will not work.)

If you are watching OTA TV or a direct coax cable connection, you need to hook up the TV audio out to the home theater system audio in to use these speakers with the TV. Then you probably need to set the TV to use the external speakers. This will probably be in the Menu under Audio. (Toggle external speakers on/off)

The Akai LCT2785TA has RCA audio out (1/4" red and white jacks). If your home theater system has RCA audio in, just get a patch cable (MM ends on each side of the cable). If your home theater system only has digital audio inputs, you will need a converter. http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/audio-converters-extenders/analog-to-digital-digital-to-analog/1t-ap-216/prod1TAP216.html is a link to one appropriate converter.

I hope this helps.

How do you get sound to come from tv out of speakers of home theatre system


It just depends on the tv you have. If you hook up the RCA jacks to the (Audio out) of the TV into one of the (AUX in) ports of the home Theatre system you should be able to geet the sound that comes from the TV to play out the theatre system. If you are watching through a cable box you will need to hook the RCA cables to the cable box (Audio out) too the theatre systems (AUX in), in insted.

Can I get surround sound while watching TV programs with this system abd if so how do I connect to TV


Yes, IF your cable or satellite box has an optical digital audio out connector...

Page 10: "Connecting a digital component"

http://www.retrevo.com/support/JVC-TH-S3-Home-Theater-Systems-manual/id/318ag405/t/2/

NOTE

When playing a video component such as a DBS tuner or cable box;

• To listen to the sound, select "AUX DIGITAL" as the source to play.

(See page 14.)

• To see the picture, connect the video output jack of the component to

the video input jack of the TV directly, and select the correct input
mode on the TV.

I can't get the tv sound to play through the theater system,what can i do to fix this. I have the rca jacks that came with the system hooked up and when i play movies on the system i can watch it and hear....


Get the TV-related audio from your cable or satellite box if you have it. Use the highest quality multichannel output of either one (if available). Also run the stereo audio out from it to the TV just in case you want to watch lo-fi news and weather without the HTS turned on.

Surround sound does not come through my tv. Just


If your DVD player is a home theater system then the sound would come through the HT system, not the TV. On your TV you should have an 'AUDIO OUT' jack, plug that into your HT system where it has the 'AUDIO IN' or "AUX" AUDIO IN. Then when you are watching TV, just set your HT system to AUX mode or AUDIO mode.
Hope that helps.

Will play dvds with sound fine...but no sound from tv


You have to connect extra red & white audio cable from your TV's (or cable box, if you have one) AUDIO OUT to the Home Theater's AUX IN 2 at the back (below Video In). Set the HTS unit to AUX 2 using the AUX button on the remote control and you should be able to get sound.

Sony Bravia Dav-HDX279W and comcast HDTV Cable box connection.


Like above, use an optical connection (need fiber optic cable) or a coaxial connection (single RCA cable). HDMI might also work, but I personally haven't checked. Connect the audio outs from the cable box to the audio ins on the home theater. The TV will only need a video connection from the cable box, as well as one from the home theater (for DVDs, onscreen menus).

This discussion can help you set up the universal remote.
