When i connect my cable box to my TV using the yellow, white, red cords i get no sound. There is sound on the regular channel but when i connect the cord to the av1 or av2 there is no sound. Please help me this is my three year old son TV and he wants to watch cartoon network at night.
Re: no sound when connected to my digtal cable box
Have you tried to connect the red white and yellow av cords to another tv? if you have sound on another then its probably the tv you are trying to connect to for your son. If thats the case you could by an rf modulator which converts the red white and yellow to the coax connection in which case you'll have sound.

If it is a cable box and you are connecting via coaxial cable using the rf converter in the box it is usually channel 3-4 but it can often be switched. If it is a satellite box it may use a high channel number like 73. Keep in mind that there is a traditional tuner and a digital tuner in your tv set so you made need to connect the cable and then do a channel setup for it to sense the active channel.
The image quality is best when the cable box is connected in this order from poorest to best; coaxial cable, rca cables (red,white,yellow), s-video (on older televisions), component video and optical audio using the three yellow, blue, green cables for video and a white or red for audio or optical input, DVI, or the best, HDMI with support for 1080p and audio. On your TV you should use an HDMI cable and simply change the Input or source button to that. The HDMI cable integrates video and sound and it will transmit a dolby surround signal to your TV just as a separate optical connection will.
Hi, Flat panel television instruction manuals are not very easy reading material, there are many connections on the back-you need to plug in some sort of input-always coming from the " out to T.V." of another device. Cable coax's are most common-the cables aren't very flexible that's one way to tell them apart from an RCA cable-usually with red, white, yellow,green and blue colored ends. The red, white and yellows are what we'll focus on for now-the yellow's are for a picture-connect them from an " out to TV" to " video input" on the back of tv, then for sound likewise- red and white colored from an"audio out " to "audio in " if coming from a VCR-you may use the rather un-flexible " screw on" coax connector-same if coming from a satellite/cable box-some satellites require tuning tv channel to # 60 for a picture-other wise it's channel 3 or 4. although you will get a better picture using yellow, red & white rca cords. I hope this has been of some help, prodzilla
These cable is to connect your tv to other hardware like a dvd player. Just plug the yellow cord on the yellow input in the TV and in the yellow output of the DVD, and the same thing for the other two colors.
The yellow it's for the image, and the white/red are for the stereo sound (right and left channels).
If you don't have extra hardware you wont need to connect that cable.
Red is right channel, White is Left Channel, and Yellow is video. If you just got the TV and DVD player its a pretty simple setup. Just look on the back of the DVD player and hook the yellow cord to video and hook the other end to video on your TV. Now just plug in the red and white cords to the audio on the back of the DVD player and connect the other ends to audio on the back of the TV. You can bypass these connections and just get a HDMI cable which has video and sound all in one convenient cord, but they cost more. You just connect the cord on the back of the DVD player where it says HDMI and then plug the other end to the TV where it says HDMI.
You are using a new HD Cable box, that are using componet video cables for HD, Unfortunetly this receiver does not have componet inputs, so you will just have to run the audio from the televison directly to the receiver by connecting the video out and audio out from the television to the receiver's video Input one. This will require a normal RCA composite cables yellow,red,white. Connect one end of each of the cables to televisions output terminals, and the other to the input one on the receiver. Note: Your TV might have a seperate term called Monitor out, Connect the yellow here, and the red and white to audio out. You can do the same for the DVD but you have to use the same cables,Also the television will not display HD picture this way as this is not a HDTV Receiver. If you just want TV sound to the receiver then do not use the video(Yellow) cable just use the audio out terminals from the tv and connect to Input one on the receiver. you can do this with the cable box also but you have to use RCA type cables . If you want the full HD experience then a new up todate receiver is necessary.
The red-blue-green outputs of the cable box are COMPONENT video, and the yellow-white-red inputs on the tv are COMPOSITE video. Although the words sound almost alike and the connectors look similar, they are incompatible signals. You'll need to change either the cable box or the tv so they match. Maybe this would be a good way to rationalize getting that new home theater system! Or maybe call your tv cable company and ask for a different box with composite video output. Once the cable box matches the tv, you don't necessarily need to change the cables. If the connectors fit, go ahead and use the cables you have.
