Question about Philips Magnavox MRD500VR System

1 Answer

Nice system cheap.

Two questions. 1. How much did this system cost new ? 2. How do I get the surround to work for the TV only ? It seems to work in stereo receiver/ DVD/ VCR modes only. My Magnavox TV has a audio output but I don't see a input on the receiver.

How to stop music from playing music while surround sound is on the tv


First make sure the cables around the television and the surround sound system are not damaged. Then make sure the any grounding on the external sheathing of the cable is making good contact and that the braiding is not touching any other cable under the plug. You could try some better aftermarket connecting cables, and the ones that come with systems are used for price cheapness. Keep a space between cables and don't wrap them around each other. If none of that works, get some Ferrite Rings and thread three on each cable to the surround sound system, one at each end of the cable and one in the middle.

Cables with good braiding and gold flashed connectors as shown on this page are an indication of quality.

Got a sony to and surround sound system works fine but when I want to screen mirror my phone to tv I have to turn surround sound system of to get volume? Please help


Assuming that the TV is the device that is recognizing the phone you may have to route your spdif (optical out) via optical cable to the back of your surround amplifier as a separate input to the surround system. You'll be able to select this audio through the surround receivers remote. Just note what the Optical input was named on the back of the surround receiver. The reason you have to do this is that the 'Smart' Tv is what is recognizing the phone's bluetooth or DLNA address so the video and audio are going to the tv. The only way the surround can play the audio is via the TV's optical output. Optical cables are really cheap on Amazon.com. This one is $6 and will work flawlessly if the surround receiver is less than 6 feet away. http://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Digital-Optical-Audio-Toslink/dp/B001TH7GSW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1425292532&sr=8-1&keywords=Spdif+cable

Hi, I hve JVC TH G30 and i have connected my DishTV receiver (not HD) to the Aux port of the device. I can get sounds only on the front left and right speakers.. Is there an option to get surround for...


This is a 2-part question. You can get ALL speakers to SIMULATE a surround experience from ANY input, even 2-channel analog.

If there is an optical digital audio output on the Dish TV receiver use THAT and the TH-G30 can decode the surround audio properly.

Read up on surround modes in the manual.

No sound thru surround sound system in TV Mode


Hi,
You need to connect your TV to the AUX connection in the back of your HT system. Then set your HT system on AUX 1 and wait about 5 seconds for the TV sound to come through. If it does not work on AUX 1, you may have to try on AUX 2 or AUX 3 settings on your HT system. Make sure the A/V cable you use is good and in working order and is a good quality cable.
Hope that helps, Gary

Surround sound hookup question?


It looks like all you'll need to do is hook up audio out from DirecTV to audio in on the surround sound system. Sony has an interesting hookup recommendation guide on the product support site:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-home.pl?mdl=DAVC700&LOC=3

That should give you the connection options. The short answer, though, is to connect the best audio out from DirecTV to an audio in on the surround sound and then choose that option in the surround sound system when you want to watch TV.
