Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a V-zon digital tv that I can't get the sound to work when I am on the internet or in other words I don't know how to hook the cable box to the tv to get the sound. The tv can only get the pictures from the internet on the VGA source channel, no sound though. The cable comes in with both picture and sound on HMD3.

When you are using the TV as a monitor (VGA) you need to connect the audio out from the computer to the VGA audio in of the TV. (Otherwise connect computer speakers to the computer (if a desktop) and use those speakers.) The audio out for a desktop is usually marked by a green 3.5 mm jack. The VGA audio in will be a 3.5 mm jack as well; so an audio patch cable (3.5 mm M/M) is needed. (The green port is normal for computer with Line-In, Line-Out and Microphone ports. If the computer has an option for surround sound, check the manual to make sure which port you should use for Line-Out.)

If your cable box has an internet connection (like some DVRs, blu-ray players and TVs), the HDMI cable will carry the audio without separating it out unless you feed the signal through a home theater system (or audio receiver) for a surround sound system.

Which model TV do you have? That will help track down where the VGA audio in port will be. Some models have the VGA audio in next to the VGA port. On other TVs, it is near other audio input and output jacks. Usually it is clearly labeled but you may need a magnifying glass to read the text. (Sometimes it will be labeled VGA/DVI audio in.)

I hope this helps.

(I have one TV in my household where the DVI audio in uses 2 RCA jacks, even with a computer as the source (so there may be some TVs with that for the VGA source as well). For that situation, I use a 3.5 mm to 2 RCA (M/M/M) cable or an adapter - either 2 RCA (F/F) to 3.5 mm (M) at the computer with an RCA audio cable or 2 RCA (M/M) to 3.5 mm (F) at the TV with a 3.5 mm audio patch cable.)

Do not know how to wire my sa-w10 speakers together


For surround sound, you need an A/V receiver with 5.1 or 7.1 surround capability. Depending on what kind of receiver you have, the DVD player, satellite/cable box, etc hooks to the receiver, those signals go out to the TV, and the speakers hook to the receiver. The receiver decodes the signal from the cable/satellite box or DVD player and routes it to the appropriate speakers. If the TV program or DVD isn't HD or coded for surround sound, the best you can expect is 2.1 channel stereo sound. OR, you can hook everything (DVD, satellite/cable box) to the TV and run an optical cable from the Digital Output of the TV to the receiver, which is basically the same thing, just a different way to hook everything up. Hope this helps

When I hook up my LG plasma to PS3 and Cable box, I don't get any sound or colour on the PS3. The TV /cable box works fine. Any ideas on the wiring?


What type of connections are you using? HDMI? Component? Composite? What audio? HDMI? Optical Digital? Analog audio?

Are you saying you get video from the PS3, but it is in Black&White only? Is there an NTSC/PAL selector on the PS3? If so, it may be set wrong. Set to NTSC if you're in the United States.

I have this receiver hooked up to a Vizio LED tv and a Vizio Blue Ray using HDMI cables. The surround sound works from the speakers while watching a dvd (HDMI -1 connection) but I have no surround sound...


AV cables don't pass surround sound through, they are pretty much just left and right stereo. You need to turn pro logic on on the reciever to "pretend" to play surround. The better option of course would be to use a digital signal like another HDMI cable or digital optical audio from the cable box, if thats what your using.

I have a cable box connected to reciever and was working fine for months, now i get no picture on tv only sound. I use hdmi cable out to tv that also uses my ps3 to tv which is working fine. What...


I don't know what kind of TV you have and what kind of output capabilities you have but, while your receiver will transfer your video signal, it is not the ideal way to hook it up. The port you are using may have to be reset somehow or, may have gone bad. Ideally you want to hook all video componenets directly to TV then, use, digital optical is best, audio out from TV to receiver. If you have more than 1 input in to TV, you can run your PS3 and cable box directly to TV, using the TV's menu to select which you are using, then, run your audio out to receiver.

Can we record with our sanyo drw 500 and a digital tv? If so, how do we do this?


If cable/SAT box, hook-up that box video/sound output to DVD video/sound input. If no cable/SAT box, hook-up cable from wall into antenna/cable in on DVD and tune DVD to channel wished, and hook-up DVD TV antenna out to TV antenna in. If DVD has no antenna/cable in, TV must have video/sound output. Hook to DVD video/sound input. Hope this helps.

How do I hook up my old VCR to an insignia tv?


You will need a converter to record onto a VCR. I can't remember the when the FCC require VCR to have digital, but I know yours old enough it has an analog tuner. Take your antenna connection to the in on the converter box, then you can take the out from the converter box to the in on the vcr and finally take the out to tv to the tv. To record you have to have the vcr on 3 or 4 and use the converter box to do the channel changing.

Another way would be take the in to the converter and use RCA cables to the line in on the vcr, and line out to the to the tv. This will give you stereo sound.

Audio from tv


It sounds like you have the red,white rca cables hooked from the back of the tv to the red,white input on the stereo or the same connection from you hd sat box or hd cablebox. In order to get the same sound quality from tv service as you do on dvd is to run a fiber optic cable or digital coax audio cable from you hd sat box or hd cablebox to your stereo which means no red,white rca cables at all, take them out. Also once you do that you must be on a hd channel to get equal sound quality of a dvd movie. I know on some hd cable or hd sat boxes you have to go in and set them up to dolby digital as well after you hook it up the way I was explaining. Try this and I hope this is helpful.
