If you are using HDMI cable you will not be using the YELLOW RCA plug sine the Yellow pug is for composite video. Analog audio uses RED (RIGHT) and WHITE (LEFT) for sound.
How exactly youhave the whole thing setup? through the receiver or just between the TV HDMI port and the HDMI port on the DVD player?
You will also need to setup the HDMI sound set up to send the sound through the HDMI cable or through the audio analog RCA ports.
More info needed. Hook up per DVD and TV user manuals

How to connect tv, direct tv box, and home theater together properly ?


Hi Vincent

That would be a heap of detail to go into. Time consuming...

Hopefully this quick pointer might help.

What is HDMI
High Definition MultiMedia Interface

Note the word MultiMedia
This Means....Both HD Video & Sound through the one cable.

HDMI is the latest state of the art connection.
Use this wherever possible. It's made for High Definition
More Convenient

Use a HDMI cable from one device to the other wherever both devices have that port type (connector).

You don't have to pay a premium ridiculous price for HDMI Cables as in the Monster type. Overpriced.
Well made regular brand & Gold pins are nice. Keep them Short.
Long Cables loose quality. 1 Meter is default.

Your LCD TV should have more than one HDMI port for inputting & outputting media (sound & video)

HDMI can be used for INPUT or OUTPUT
Eg OUT to an Amplifier or IN from a device like DVD Player.

On the OLDer equipment you will Have a YELLOW connector. That is used for the Video signal.
The RED is RIGHT AUDIO.
The WHITE is LEFT AUDIO.
Fiber OPTIC cables are a better way to transfer AUDIO than the red & white cables. Cleaner.
But this only works if the 2 devices have an optical port available.

Some New Amplifiers are smart and may require you to select the optical port in the settings instead of the default HDMI.
This may also apply to HDMI Port Choice.
Simply plug the HDMI in first & check.
Use a known source e.g. play a DVD or CD or Radio Reveiver as a signal.
ONE HDMI Port on the TV might be an OUTPUT ONLY channel (PORT) to an External Amplifier (if you wish to use one)

HDMI on external devices will be Outputing video & sound on their HDMI Port
To the INPUT HDMI PORTS on the TV.

Some TV's will fall back to a particular HDMI port on power fail or startup therefore not requiring you to use the remote every time.

External SPEAKERS should have the polarity checked. Eg Red (or marked wire) to the same post on either speaker. This makes sure that the speakers travel forward together at the same time. Pumping sound forward then retracting together....
so they are not fighting against each other.
.......This is called out of phase & distorts sound.

Hope this Helps

Enjoy Your New Entertainment

.......Then give me a tick of approval for my trouble....

How do I connect the wireing


The VCR portion is connected to yhe TV via yellow-end cable(video) from "video out" to TVs "video in" and red and white-end cables(audio) from "audio out" to TVs "audio in". The DVD plays via HDMI cable from "HDMI out" to TVs HDMI in. S-video cable can be used if no HDMI terminal is available on TV. External tuner in (cable TV, Satellite) is connected to the video and audio in terminals or better yet if S-video out is available on the tuner box.

NEC PX-50XM4A 50" plasma tv - I get a picture but no sound. I have my cable box plugged in to the DVI port converted to HDMI going to my cable box but I cant get sound when I plug external speakers in to...


HDMI carries both video and audio.
Do you get video and audio on TV. Just to be sure.
Now are the external speakers powered ?
are you connecting the Speakers to Audio Out of the TV ?
By the way, I cannot see any RCA port that is output port on your NEC plasma. NEC 50XM4 User Manual Specifications The audio input is for audio from dvd for example.

How do i use it so my tv programming is in surround sound?


if the Comcast cable box has an HDMI output, it should connect directly to one of the TV HDMI inputs. Then connect the LG DVD unit HDMI output to the second HDMI input of the TV. Use two HDMI cables. Do not buy the expensive Monster HDMI cables. If you have already done so, I recommend you take it back for a refund, then buy the low cost HDMI cables which will work just as good and then you can bank the savings toward a new Porsche Boxter!! Now we have the video connected from both the cable box and the LG system.

Now--what do you do if the cable box does not have an HDMI output--just use its component output and your component cable (red, blue and green) to connect to the TV component input. This will still get the video to the TV and good HD pictures. Hum--do you have an HD cable box? You did not say and I just assumed that you did since you got the HDTV. If not, let me know with a follow up question and I will assist in that area further.

Now for the audio connections--The DVD player will not need any connections since it in the LG unit. The sound will come out the speakers when you start playing the DVD. The cable box is where we get the TV audio to feed the LG unit. If the cable box has an optical output, use an optical cable (again the low cost one)and connect to the optical input on the LG.
This will get the TV audio to the surround system. If no optical output, use the red and white (left/right) audio connections and connect to one of the two the LG audio inputs. To hear TV audio on the LG speakers, just switch to that input or the input associated with the optical input.

To watch DVDs, switch the TV to the HDMI input to which you connected the LG unit. For TV, go to the other HDMI input (or component input).
Switch the LG to the audio input to which you connected the cable box to get TV sound.

Hope this gives you food for thought. If so, and you have more questions, just come back in with a follow up.

Speaker crackle


HDMI is a High Definition Multimedia Interface and has the capability to transmit both AUDIO and VIDEO all in one cable. Your setup right now is transmitting 2 audio frequecys (L/R stereo RCA and HDMI) into the Denon inputs. Not necessary! I would recommend eliminating the red/white audio cable from the direct tv box to the Denon.

After doing such, your receiver should be able to process audio/video signals appropriately. REMEMBER to unplug all POWER CORDS before reconnecting any speaker/audio/video cable, as it may cause a small electrical surge and fry a micro component in your system!

No surround sound from my PS3 through the Onkyo 5100. Video OK


Unfortunately only the higher end Onkyo Reciever pass audio over HDMI for sound. 605,705,805,905 exc. Your reciever will carry Video over HDMI but you will need a digital optical cable for sound.



thanks.

Don't worry about sending the TV audio to the Panasonic. Just send a digital audio signal from the cable box to the Panasonic.

DVD - Panasonic connected via HDMI
TV - Panasonic connected via HDI
cable connected to cable box and TV. But you will not really be using the cable connection to the TV (TV Tuner) since you will want HD feed from cable box through HDMI input on TV.

You aren't concerned about feeding the TV speakers because your audio will always come from the home theatre.

Note that some components don't feed audio through HDMI, in which case you will need to use optical digital audio.

Cant get the wiring figured out.........


TV is HD correct? Use the Y/CB/CR from the Sat to the TV. Use the Digital optical cable for sound from the sat to the receiver. Use the s-video from the dvd player to the tv and the l/r to the receiver for sound. I would suggest upgrading to another set of Y/CB/CR cables to connect your dvd to the TV and benefit from better picture. Also, buy another optical cable for dvd sound (so you can enjoy surround sound). Your receiver has two optical inputs so youre covered there.

Denon AVR587 Setup


red/white/yellow = composite
red/green/blue= component video cables + audio cables needed

the red/white= stereo audio

the denon 587 has 2 optical (toslink) inputs and 2 digital coax. These are surround sound cables basically, it's the only way to get true 5.1 dolby or dts.

connect cable box, and the samsung to the sony using hdmi. then connect the cable box and the samsung to the denon receiver with optical cable. And that's it.
