Only on a few conditions.

1) either your laptop has HDMI or other premium sound output (coax, optical)
2) you can use USB sound cards (or perhaps PCMCIA/Expresscard) which may output better quality sound

HOW CAN I HOOK UP HOME THEARTER SYSTEM TO MY TV


Assuming (since you don't identify them) your RCA has at least one available analog stereo input and your TV has a analog stero-only output, just connect them with RCA cables, set the TV's output volume (if it has menu item for it) to FIXED so theTV volume doesn't affect the output, select the input on the HTS and you're good to go.

Another way might be to take the TV-related audio from the cable box straight to the HTS in whatever manner is the best quality. Digital would make mulitchannel audio possible.

Or name the devices involved, find the manuals and read up on your applicable options.
The video out side of a receiver only REQUIRES a simple video out connection so you can see the On Screen Display for managing it. Most manuals (which you DO have, right?) also recommend running all or some video sources through the receiver to the TV but I don't bother conencting video to my audio electronics or audio to my video electronics as it wastes cables, adds connections which could fail and adds virtually nothing to either medium.

I have a rca home theater and when im playing a movie i dont get audio from my tv i only get audio from my home thearter!how could i get audio from both?


First of all we need to know how audio comes in from the TV and it's make/model, just in case it's complicated - cable type and name the output to which input on the RCA.

A TV's speakers are not generally considered a viable additions or alternatives to audio-specific designs. That is not to say they aren't better than some. Just the same TV's usually are not at the output end of an audio chain. Video, yes.

My $.02...

Even though this may go 'against the book', I'd recommend you go for minimal receiver involvement in the video side other than to send composite video to the TV from "Monitor Out" so you can set up and manage the receiver through the TV.

You can also send Cable- or Sat Box basic analog audio directly to the TV if it has inputs for audio. That way if you just want to watch the news or weather you don't need to fire up the Receiver.

Your video sources (DVD, BD, Cable/Sat) can suffer fewer video anomalies and unnecessary modifications or conversions if you send their BEST video directly to the TV and their BEST audio directly to the receiver. That way everything is handled only once by the best electronics you have for each function.

> I have bought a pig tail that goes from VGA(the lap top side) to s-video/audio-video cables(tv side)
A simple pigtail won't convert VGA to S-video. The VGA output consists of separate RGB lines and horizontal and vertical synchronization lines.
If you have an adapter that really converts VGA (this output has no audio path) to S-Video and audio lines, then you probably just need to re-select the input through the TV's menu system.

I purchased the philips home thearter sourrond sound model # HTS3372D. How do I hook it up so my DISH DVR runs through it.


If you want the audio to come through the home theater,then simply use the av jacks from the DVR box to the input of a video in section of the home theater jacks and put the yellow jack,(or component whichever you can use) into the tv video input

If you have a video in section on the reciever,then that will let you use 5.1 surround and you can have that for the audio and video to tv

How do I play music from my lap top on this sound system?


your laptop has an audio output jack that is 1/8 inch sterio .. your sound system likely has RCA input jacks .. you can get a cable from radio shack that has a 1/8 inch (3.5mm) sterio plug on one end and two RCA plugs on the other ..
plug the 1/8 inch jack into your computers audio output (headphone jack) .. the RCA plugs will connect to the AUX (analog) input on your sound system .. select AUX on your sterio system to select the computers input .. now you should have great sound from your computer . the computer likely provides only sterio information so the multi (7) channel feature of your sound system will have to fake it ..

Wiring with a sattelite receiver and new Samsung TV


Nope RamaTheMan - you are incorrect! No way to get an actual surroundsound from your TV on this turd - this came straight from the Samsung FAQ -

"You cannot get surround sound from your television. On the other hand, if your television has audio output jacks you can connect your TV or Set Top Box to your Home Theater System and get stereo sound (that is, sound from the left and right speakers of your Home Theater System only).
To connect your TV or STB audio output jacks to your Home Theater System and get stereo sound, follow these steps:
  1. Turn off your TV and Home Theater System.
  2. Connect the Audio Out jacks on your TV to the External Audio Input jacks on the back of your Home Theater System. The External Audio Input connectors are typically labeled AUX IN. Note: There are usually two pairs of Audio Input jacks, AUX 1 and AUX 2. Each pair has a jack for the left audio input and the right audio input. Often, there are two Video AUX IN jacks as well. You can plug the audio cables into either audio AUX 1 or AUX 2. See the following diagram.
    auxin.jpg
  1. Turn on your TV and Home Theater System.
  2. Press the Function Button on the front panel of your Home Theater System until the display on your Home Theater System shows AUX 1 or AUX 2.
For advanced installation, if you are using a High Def STB, you can connect an OPTICAL connection from the STB to the HTS. This is a specified cable that must be purchased separately.
In either instance, you must then set the HTS to its auxiliary input. (i.e AUX 1, AUX 2, DIGITAL IN) in order to get the sound from the HTS.
Note: If your television does not have Audio Out jacks, you may be able to get stereo sound by attaching the Audio Out jacks on your VCR to either the AUX 1 or AUX 2 audio inputs on your Home Theater System. If you attach your VCR to AUX 1 or AUX 2, you will have to tune your television to channel 3 or 4, and then tune to the station you want to watch on your VCR."
