Question about Insignia 5.1-Ch. Home Theater System with DVD/CD/MP3 Player/VCR
I have Insignia 19" LCD TV NC-LCD19 and Insignia DVD Home Theater system bought at store on 12/31/07. DVDs, Sirius radio IAV2) all play well enough through home theater speaker system. Connected is also older Sony VCR, with coax in and out connection, rca in and out connections.
Wanted to play tv sound via home theater also, but cannot find right wiring setup.
TV signal and sound come from DIsh HDTV DVR Satellite Receiver, in Dual Mode and this tv, the insignia, is connected as the Remote. Means that only connection possible with that Dish receiver is via coax cable. Receiver is approx 80 ft of cable away from Insignia tv, two stories down, via outside run.
No other connection is possible.
Is it possible somehow to wire this setup so as to be able to play tv sound also via Insignia Home Theater? When purchased, all was explained to sales persona and I was assured that it was possible.
I have a high definition Polaroid tv which I bought in 2007. I have it connected to Dish tv. It worked fine at first. Now when I use the Dish tv remote, the television won't power up. The red light, which appears when the television is off turns blue when I attempt to turn the tv on, but the screen stays black. Why won't the television come on anymore?

HDTV is not carried via coaxial cable from tuner, you need HDMI or the 5 RCA cables that are different colors. I forget if they are called component or composite, I think they are called composite, the R and W are sound. If you run the HDMI or composite cables to your TV, there should be a variable out or audio out on the back of the TV that outputs ANY sound coming into the TV, like Wii, DVD, tv, etc. So if you want to listen to tv sound, just pipe the audio out to the receivers available input and turn it up. Cant be used with mag input (turntable) all others are compatible. Did this answer your question? Sat cables are usually kept under 130 ft from the dish, and the dish receiver can output coaxial signal over 400ft on RG-6 cable. HDMI is limited and can get very expensive. Does your sat box have a coaxial digital out (orange RCA) you can use that if your receiver can read it, usually associated with the DVD input or video input, but only for digital encoded programs.
