    Dear Rameesh, I only have 1 optical ouput for the TV and 1 optical output for the DVD recorder. The amp has 1 optical input. I dont have an optical input for the TV. I was going to connect the tv to the dvd with a HDMI cable. Then I was going to plug the optial out from the dvd to the optical input on the amp. I thought if I use the tv tuner on the dvd recorder, I would have 5.1 through the amp? Is this a solution.?

Dear wayne,
Please locate audio input socket on your TV, Then Connect audio output of DVD recorder to this input socket. The optical output of TV goes to input of amp. Since the DVD recorder is connected to the TV and TV's out put connected to the Amp. Now the sound signals from tv and as well from DVD will be 5.1 surround from the amp.
If any case this does not solve your problem, please mail me the photo of the back side of TV's connections at my mail.

How should I hook up a dvd player? Which one of the input jacks. I am using rca connectors


mikehomco,

On the rear of the DVD locate the composite video output and audio outputs. The connectors will be RCA females. Video is yellow, right audio is red and left audio is right. Connect one end of your patch cable to the appropriate output color. On the TV find the video input one. Connect the yellow, red and white ends of the cord to the same colors on the TV, video input 1. If your TV has a source selection button use it to locate video input one. If not use the menu. Go to input select and choose video input one. Enjoy the movie.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

I have audio cables going from HD 61g887 jvc tv, to my phillips surround sound system under aux but it is not giving me sound?


hi
you didn't mentioned the model number of your surround sound system, for a better solution its important. any why try the following.

if you are connected the analog audio output of your tv to the system using RCA cable, then go to the setup of the surround sound system and change the input assignment setting from digital to analog.
If your connected the digital output of your tv to the digital input of your surround system using optical cable then, goto the setup of your surround system and change the input assignment to digital (optical) input.


if u need any further assistance fell free to contact through fixya

(Pioneer PDP-4340HD Plasma with PDP-R04U Receiver) My HDMI input works, however having a computer or Xbox connected via HDMI I do not have the optical output signal thus I can not hear audio through my...


I don't have a direct solution but I am having the same problem when connecting (1) my Apple TV (2) my Blu-Ray player, etc. via HDMI. I also have a digital camera that puts out HDMI, and when I hook it up, I get the same story -- video only, no sound through the optical digital output of the TV receiver.

I am guessing that the HDMI inputs were an afterthought on this model, especially since the printed manual doesn't even show or mention the HDMI inputs at all! So my guess is that the TV's receiver does not convert the sound from the HDMI to the optical digital output. It does, however, send the amplified HDMI sound to the stereo speaker outputs on the monitor. It appears that only the digital tuner's 5.1 sound comes out on the optical digital output.

This is what I have observed, for what it's worth.

Hi - I had to have my Sky+ box replaced and it was never reconnected to the dvd recorder. I'm now trying to do this myself using 3 scart leads (which I had done previously) but all I get is a blue screen....


Yellow = VIdeo Red + White = Stereo Audio
Make sure both are connect accordingly, as for the end that goes to the recorder (from the Sky+ Box) make sure it's plugged into the category 'Input' not 'Output' as your inputting your skybox through your dvd recorder and from the dvd recorder 'Output' to the TV.

How do I connect the VCR & DVD when I have a Comcast box


Good Day,

Not knowing what type of TV you own, let's try this:

1. Hook your Audio from your TV to your amp; TV's audio output to an amp input.(eg; video one)
2. Hook vcr/dvd/c box to inputs to your TV.(eg; vcr to video 1 on tv, dvd to tv's video 2)

Let me ask you how many inputs does your tv have?
Is tv, box&dvd HD?? Iwill help but give me more information. Thanks

Connecting a Samsung HT-Z310 home cinema to a Series 5 Samsung TV and Games consoles, will only work with DVD currently. How do I get the cinema system to work for TV and consoles?


Do you have an Optical Audio cable going from the A/V receiver to the TV? If not, you need to get one. Since the HT-Z310 only has HDMI output and no input there is not audio bypass. Once you connect an Optical Audio cable from the receiver to the TV, anything that goes through the TV (cable audio, PS3 or Xbox 360, DVDs, Radio) will go through the receiver, too.

I am trying to hook up my tv to my receiver, I have a dvd vcr combo,and cable box


Audio: There should be a set of audio outputs on your TV. Connect those to the AUX inputs of your receiver. When you turn on your receiver, set it to AUX. Set your TV volume to approx 1/3 and adjust the volume on your receiver. There's probably a menu section on the TV to turn off your TV speakers so the sound will only come from your receiver.

DVD/VCR (I'll call it DVD from this point forward): Connect the video (yellow) output from the DVD to the "video input" on the back of the TV. Connect the audio out on the DVD player (red) to the red audio input on the back of the TV, then do the same with the other audio (white). When you want to use your DVD player, you'll select "input 1" as the input on the TV.

Cable: Your cable box probably has numerous output types. I have the cable box hooked up to both the DVD player AND to the TV; one output type going to the DVD player and another output type going to the TV. I like to use the HDMI output from the cable box to the TV, and the composite video from the cable box to the DVD.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need more info.

No digital to reciever??


This tv will only output the sound from a digital tv channel through the optical output when using the tv's digital tuner. So if you are connecting a DVD etc it will not output through the optical output on the tv. ONLY digital chanels through the tv's tuner will give you sound. Refer to the tv's owners manual for more info.
