Hi.

You need to use audio cables. Connect two red and white audio cables from the output on the HD box to the relative input at the back of TV (nr.4 in picture below). The best way to connect the HD box is by using component cables, that are the red-green and blue trio of cables, plus a white and red audio cables.

Here what you need:

Three plus two:
Component Video Cable
Audio Red / White Cable

or single set of five:
Cables Unlimited - Video / audio cable

Once you have the five cables, connect them to the output at the back of the Direct TV box, and then connect the other end of the cable to either group of connectors 6, or to one of the columns in connector 7. Do connection with box and TV power off. After re-applying power use the source-input selector on remote to select the source from Direct TV box.

Sentry 2.1 surround sound speaker system. i have my rca cords plugged in to my tv, but i only get sound from my tv, nothing out of the speaker itself. it only works when i have my headphone jack into


Most televisions have a setting that controls whether the TV uses its internal speakers or sends the sound to the audio out jacks for an external amplifier or speakers.
Try going through the settings menu and follow through the audio/speaker selections and confirm that the TV is set to use external speakers.

Xbox360 not hooking up to Curtis DVD5091 surround sound through optical cable


try running the optical cable from your dvd directly to your tv and then select whichever input (eg HDMI 1/2 etc) you use to play the xbox on..In theory this setup should allow any audio playing on the tv to go through the surround sound..hope it works

No audio. good video


Not familiar with this make of TV, but some TV's require you make a change to the audio menu from int. to ext. speakers. Do the internal speakers work and if they do, besides the menu change are you useing an external amp with your surround system?

My loewe articos 30 has a picture but no sound. Frustrating!! Please help!!


Most of the Loewe's (I did factory warranty work on them) have a black square plug in the back with a single jumper wire---if plug is not there there will be no sound.

Get it to work with only the internal speakers and ALWAYS MAKE ALL EXTERNAL HOOKUP WITH THE UNITS OFF.

Hi, I bought recently a new 5.1 Surround Sound System Logitech X-530 and want to connect it to our new LCD LG 32LD450 HD TV. The LG TV has apart from all Digital, Optical and RCA Connections as well one...


You can't connect the speakers to your TV. I doesn't have any audio output available, just inputs. Those are for connecting the audio from sources like DVD players, and they go in to the TV's sound system. But there's no way of getting the sound out except through the set's internal speakers. The surround system you got is great for a computer, but it's not what you need for TV use.

The only solution I can offer is the suggestion that you invest in a home theater receiver. You can get decent basic systems with the receiver (often with DVD/audio CD playback capability built in) and surround speakers at reasonable prices. Then you use that to drive the speakers, and use the TV just as a video monitor. Then you will have surround sound.

Can't figure out why there isn't an out on my curtis mathes for surround sound with sub. When we bought the "tv" from a friend we thought it was a "flat screen tv" it says on...


In most cases the TV is used just as an input device, and they frequently have no output jacks. Usually the TV is hooked up as part of a home theater system, and is used as a video monitor while the sound is taken care of by a receiver or amplifier. The sound comes from the video source (DVD player, set-top box, etc.). Some TV sets have audio output available, but it sounds like yours doesn't. If you want to have surround sound, you'll need to invest in a receiver and speakers.

We have a picture but no sound, it is hooked up to our surround system and the dvd and radio work and we have sound coming out of the speakers but no tv sound....help


Try switching the external/internal speaker switch on the back of the tv to internal. This way you should at least get sound (from the TV not the sound system) when you change the volume of the TV itself.
Explain your set up if you need more help. By that I mean what do you have hooked to the TV and sound system, Satellite or digital cable box DVD ?
Make a note of where all the inputs to the sound system come from.
