Instructions things you'll need:

  • Composite video cable
  • TV
    • 1 Place the front left and right speakers on each side of the TV with the speaker labeled "Center" either above or below the TV screen. Set the rear speakers behind the seating area at head level and place the subwoofer on the floor a few inches away from the wall, which can absorb bass sounds if the sub is pressed against it.
    • 2 Connect the plug on the end of each speaker to the jack labeled for that speaker on the back of the Durabrand receiver. The cables are permanently attached to the speakers, so each may need to be moved closer to the receiver. For example, the left front speaker connects to the jack on the receiver labeled "LF."
    • 3 Plug the video cable from the Video OUT jack on the back of the receiver to a Video Input jack on the back of the TV.
    • 4 Plug in the Durabrand receiver and TV to the electricity and switch on both components.
    • 5 Press the "Input" button on the TV remote several times until the Durabrand signal displays on the screen.

SOURCE: hooking up audio video to cable box with home theatre

From Cable Box to Input on DVD Player, from DVD Player Out, to TV in, from TV Audio Out to Home Theater Audio In.

That should work.

Will have to have the VCR on to watch cable. Plus make sure that you use A/V cables as much as possible. Coax works ok, but not as good as R/W/Y.

SOURCE: I bought a refurbished RCA

You have some choices. I'm assuming you are using Input 1 and 2 for the component, composite, S-video connection options that are stacked: input 2 above input 1 and input 3 to the left of input 1.

1) You can always home theater system speakers in use for the DVD player and cable box. In that case, disconnect the audio cables from the TV for both devices and connect them to the audio inputs of the Home Theater system. Leave the video cable in place. (If you use component video and separate audio cables, this will be easier than if you use a composite video cable. You would probably need extra audio cables.) The TV speakers will not work in this configuration unless you use another input (for exampe: TV OTA or PC that isn't connected to the home theater system). .

2) You can leave the current connections alone and connect the TV's audio out to one of the Home Theater system's audio inputs. The audio out is towards the bottom of the back panel between the VGA PC video in and the PC audio in. Once connected, turn on the TV and turn off the TV speaker. Menu > Setup > TV Speakers (On/Off) (navigate with the up/down and left/right arrows as needed). If you want to control the sound of the Home Theater system (and it is compatible with your system) set the next line Audio Out to Vari. Otherwise leave it at Fixed (and control the volume with the Home Theater systems controls). Also turn on the Home Theater system and set it to the desired input.

In all cases, you need at least one RCA audio cable with two plugs (red/white). Maximum of three for the component video with video from the cable box and DVD player to TV and then out to the home theater center. See the TV manual for configuring a connection to an external amplifier.


If you have no sound and the TV speakers are off, try new cables, make sure you are set to the correct input, and make sure that the connections are secured correctly. (Make sure you didn't accidently connect to a Audio In on the TV for example since the audio in for the PC is on the far side of the audio out relative to the VGA port.) Make sure the Mute is not enabled on any device. Make sure everything has power and that no headphones are connected to anything. If you have noise when the TV is on, then try moving the home theater system farther from the TV and/or using shielded cables. Check if the unit can receive an AM or FM signal (the tuner is built in but you will need an antenna) or the audio when directly connected to a device.

If it doesn't work with any connection, it probably needs service. The unit came with a one-year warranty when new, max of 90 days refurbished. Check your documentation.

I hope this helps.

How do you get sound to come from tv out of speakers of home theatre system


It just depends on the tv you have. If you hook up the RCA jacks to the (Audio out) of the TV into one of the (AUX in) ports of the home Theatre system you should be able to geet the sound that comes from the TV to play out the theatre system. If you are watching through a cable box you will need to hook the RCA cables to the cable box (Audio out) too the theatre systems (AUX in), in insted.

You have several ways to do this. You can hdmi cables from the two units and plug them into your tv if it supports hdmi and run the audio out portion on the back of the tv and hook that into one of the audion inputs on the surround unit. Or you run audio directly out of the bluray using rca, digital coax, or digital optical cable. Turn the surround reciever to the corresponding input that you choose to use.

Sony Model DAV ? SB 500W Home Theatre System


Please check at rear of TV for Digital Optical IN port as home theater should have optical out port at rear. If you got any optical in port in TV, just connect optical wire between TV and home theater.

2nd option is check Line Out pins at rear of home theater system, if found, hook red-white RCA cable there and put it to same input in TV where you hooked Video (composite or component) cable.

Let me know the results to help you more.

Need help hooking up TV, BluRay, Home Theatre & cable box


I found that since the Panasonic TH50PZ80U TV has only 2 HDMI ports on the back of the TV, the best solution for me was to use component (red, blue, green) cables to connect the Home Theatre to the TV. I suppose I/you could connect the home theatre to the HDMI port on the front panel, but I don't want cables hanging out the front of the TV (personal preference). Unfortunately, I am no longer able to use the VIERA Link functionality available by connecting all Panasonic components to each other using HDMI cables, but I feel it's a small price to pay for the incredible picture quality acheived by using the HDMI cable to connect the HD Cable Box to the TV. I may yet be able to control everything using the HD Cable Box remote, but I haven't gotten that far yet but I've got Comcast coming on Saturday and hopefully they can let me know if this is possible: let me know if you have a solution.

So here are the components and the cable types used to connect:
  1. HD Cable Box to TV: HDMI cable & Optical Audio cable
  2. Home Theatre to TV: Red, Blue & Green component cables
  3. BluRay Player to TV: HDMI cable
I hope this helps someone else.

Make sure the TV is set to output audio to the digital optical port. Then make sure you have selected the proper output mode on the home theatre. Unplug the optical cable from the back of the home theatre and see if the red laser is on (don't shine it in your eyes! :))
