Question about Teac Audio & Video Receivers

1 Answer

Hi, I bought a teac dvd and 5 speaker surround sound system yesterday. I am having trouble setting it up. I want to run the TV sound through it as well, but at the moment it is only going through the sub and we can't turn it down using the volume button. Plus when listening to music or a dvd the sound only runs through the sub and 2 other speakers. I have a 1996 philips TV, would you know whether its analog or digital etc sound as I don't know what to set it too. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks Brooke

    Thank you,


    I think maybe the speakers might be hooked up wrong, I'll look into that. Also how do I know which is the correct sound mode? 
    (Probably a silly question?=) )


    The manual isn't very helpful al all, its really brief. Normally I'm not too bad with these things but this seems overly complicated.

Whoa,ok.Sounds like things aren't connected properly.The first step is to disconnect the TV and concentrate on getting sound from a dvd or cd.Read the owners manual and double check that the speakers are hooked up correctly and that the unit is in the correct surround mode.Next, connect the TV.Use an RCA cable to go from an "Audio out" jack on the TV to an input jack on the Teac -e.g. "Aux, TV, etc.If your TV doesn't have the proper jack, I'm afraid you're out of luck.

    Hi-



    No such thing as a silly question when you're dealing with this stuff.....If your source (dvd) is in dolby digital and you have it hooked up with a optical/coax cable, then you would want it in Dolby digital-otherwise it really doeesn't mattter- your best bet would be dolby pro logic or play around and see which one sounds best-there are no hard and fast rules and every manufacturer makes up there own names.And you're right-the manuals are usually awful!!

Some DVD's sound fine whilst others have background sounds but no voices. I do have an old model TV that has mono sound.Would that cause it?


" Some DVD\'s sound fine whilst others have background sounds but no voices. I do have an old model TV that has mono sound.Would that cause it? "
Hi,
I wrote a short article for someone who had a similar problem a few days ago.
I will edit it for you so that it fits. Here it is.
Your DVD player should have output connectors in the back of it to plug your amplifier or receiver into. If you have a Stereo system (no surround sound speakers, or front center speaker) connect the DVD Audio Cables on the back of the DVD player to the STEREO (or MIXED ) Output Jacks. If it is connected to the Left Front and Right Front jacks of the "Surround Sound" output jacks instead of Stereo(or MIXED) then the dialog will be sent to the CENTER channel output. If you have no center channel speaker you will not hear it. Thus no dialog.
NOTE: In your case for the TV that is mono, here is the solution.
1 Connect a stereo pair of RCA cables (red and white "male" connectors at each end) to the Mixed or Stereo Output of the DVD player (NOT ANY SURROUND OUTPUTS).
2 Purchase an RCA type "Y" connector that has 2 female to a single male connectors on it. Walmart about 3 dollars.
3 Plug the single male plug of the Y connector into the back of the TV set's single mono audio input.
4 Connect the stereo RCA pair from the MIXED output of the DVD player into the Y connector that is now on the back of yourTV.
5 Run your yellow Video output from the DVD into the Back of the Set's yellow input.
That should do it. The sound should be clear and correct with dialog, effects and music.
Hope this helps,
Best,
Mark

I'm having trouble with sound when i try and install a surround sound system. This is the second system I've had that my lg would not play sound


Firstly you must have the remote typically to set the speakers up or there is a combination of keys to do this but usually some functions cannot be changed without the remote.  
Second, the surround sound playback can only be played if the sound that you are listening to has the surround sound track, otherwise you may not hear hardly anything when your device is set to the wrong function.

The speakers must also match the surround sound system otherwise you may not hear anything at all.
Remember: A 5.1 System is 5-speakers,   A 7.1 system is 7 speakers!
 
The speakers should be marked for which place they belong LF= Left,Front...etc.

Surround Sound won't go on. Connected and setup all speakers. Did the speakers test. And playing a DVD surround sound won't go on.


You don't say what the DVD model is and how it's connected. What DOES work? Is surround not working for other sources, too? Have you connected the DVD player to other inputs to see if the problem is in it or the receiver? Is the digital input on the receiver assigned to the DVD player? You have some homework to do.

When on 5.1 dvd ther is no sound from rear speakers,but i can run the test tone ok


check to see that the dvd player sound setting is set to BITSTREAM and not pcm. pcm is only 2 channel. Then check to see that the volume setting for the rear speakers in dvd is up, most sony receivers hold different settings for different applications, (vid 1, sat/tv, dvd) and remember when you switch between them. Rear surround should be up all the way , I believe for your receiver that is +10 also make sure you enable the rear speakers in the setup menu for surround sound.

I just bought a Blue Ray player but my surround sound has a dvd player built in and only one input which I have my new Sharp TV plugged into. How can I hook up my Blue Ray . I have the HDMI cables


Depending on if your surround system has a hdmi input or not. if it does you can connect the blu-ray player to it. If it doesn't have an hdmi input you will have to run the hdmi cable from the blu-ray to the tv then run a set of rca cables (red and white plugs) from the tv audio out to the surround systems' audio input jacks to get sound through the surround system. Most surround systems don't have an auxiliary input for another video device.

What to connect to where?


I would run toslink optical if you have it, if not then use coaxial digital from your TV output to receiver input. this will handle all the sound that goes with watching TV from any source(dvd player, cable, etc)

I would run the DVD player into the TV hopefully with HDMI cable so you get the surround sound.

the television can split off the audio information from the HDMI and send it back through the toslink cable to the receiver which decodes it into surround sound for your speakers.
