Wharfedale LCD37F1080P and external surround sound
Have connected the Audio cables to the Audio Out connections on the TV and the Audio In on the surround sound system, but cannot get any sound from the TV through the sound system. If I connect the sound system to the DVD player the same way I get sound but only for what is playing on the DVD, and the same happens with the video.

Depends on your external sound system... If it supports HDMI, then just connect an HDMI lead between the TV and the external amp. If you don't have HDMI, look for two RCA/Phono connectors (small circular connectors) on the back of the TV (should be coloured red & white) and connect these to the external sound system. Finally, if you don't have either of these look for a 32 pin scart socket (rectangular with a bit sticking out) and get a scart to phone cable. Plug the scart plug into the TV and connect the Red & White output leads to your external system - hope that helps :-)
though you have not mentioned about the cabling connections you have done, for the sake of correct
connection I describe all the possible cabling alternatives to you..You
can select whichever you want.. TO WATCH DVD ON THE TV: ** Receiver's "AUDIO and VIDEO OUTPUT as " 2xRCA Audio+1x Video " or "Optic Cable OUTPUT or " HDMI Output " of your Home Theater Receiver (whichever you want ,based on the existing sockets and necessary cables on your hand ) **
AT TV side : you need to connect "Audio+ Video input s " as can either be : 3xRCA jacks or
"Optic cable input " or HDMI IN connector of your TV , ** than just switch to
DVD mode on Receiver and play DVD *You can use "HDMI" connections as well but sometimes HDMI creates problem on Audio.. TO LISTEN YOUR TV ON SURROUND SYS. **
AT TV side : you need to connect "Audio Output " as can either be : 2xRCA jacks or
"Optic cable output" or HDMI connector of your TV , ** to Receiver's "TV input "or "AUX input" or "Optic Cable input" or HDMI of your Home Theater Receiver (whichever you want ,based on the existing sockets and necessary
cables on your hand ) ** than just switch to
respective SOURCE mode on Receiver corresponding the connector you have used on the back of Receiver .. *You can use "HDMI" connections as well but sometimes HDMI creates problem on Audio..
Pls remember.."IN " goes to "OUT" or vice versa..all the times..
There you go..Both Tv and DVD sound are on the Receiver as SURROUNDING SOUND.By this means ,whatever you watch on the TV will come thru your Receiver's SURROUNDING SOUND speakers as well.
Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know. Take care
What cables are you using for the XBOX and the digital box? What surround sound system are you using (what receiver)? Which model of Dynex 32" TV do you have? Looking at the DX-L32-10A, I can connect both devices to the TV and then the audio out to the surround sound system.
If HDMI, then that will carry the audio to the TV and then you would need an audio cable from the audio out on the TV to the surround sound speakers. Similarly, if you use component video and the audio cable combination, there are 2 component video jacks and 3 audio-in jacks on the rear of the TV. Then connect another cable from the audio out of the TV to the surround sound system. (This TV has one audio out and a headphone jack.)
If you previously had the audio going from the Rogers digital box directly to the surround sound system, you need to reroute things unless there are two or more sets of audio in jacks on the surround sound system. Some surround sound system can take several HDMI in cables and then route it to the TV on a HDMI out port.
Without more information, I can't be sure of the best option for your cables.
I hope this gets you started and please provide more information for additional suggestions.
Connect the cable to the TV, then connect the "audio out" to the receiver, preamp or pre-processor you are you using in conjunction in your setup. Then select the input on the device that you connected the audio cable to, and choose a surround sound mode.
Most modern day preamps, preprocessors and receivers can provide many different surround sound modes that can be enabled even from monoaural sources.
7.1 surround sound will not work with a coax connection OR Composite (yellow video with Red and White audio). You either need to use an HDMI cable or the Component connection (Red, Green, and Blue connection along with the Red and White audio or the optical audio connection).
Extra speakers without having the external speaker jacks in the rear is definitely a NO NO. The surround sound is used by connecting the RCA jacks from the TV that say Audio Out to the surround sound audio input on the receiver.. The RCA cables are cheap, you can get them at Home Depot ect....
Start checking the cable connection to receiver, try moving or replacing cables.
If you have a surround with external speakers check surround connection cable and speakers wiring.
If the cables are OK, then the unit may be faulty.
that case the fault can be either the audio board (often audio circuit
is integrated on the main board) , or the sinput output signal board. Also a contact on connection to internal speakers can give you same problem.
Have you tried to hook up your DVD player directly to the surround sound system? If you direct the sound through the TV, it has to pass several circuits and the quality will be lover. Just connect it right away to your sound system. :-)
