Hi,

have you enabled external display on the vaio?
right click an empty area of your desktop.
go to "graphics options", then "Output To" and select the option for "clone" "Computer + TV".
the menu should look similar to this.

you have to change the input on the tv to AV. there should be an input button on the remote, but if your remote doesnt work you might not be able to change the input. you can try to use the channel up and down on the tv and once you get to the end of the numbers, some tvs will change inputs before restarting the number list. make sure you hook the yellow cable to the yellow plugs on the dvd and the tv and either of the red or white ones to the white one on the tv. red and white are left and right audio and the yellow one is the video

No video signal from dvd player to tv.


Double check the way you've got the cables connected.  Audio but no video generally means that the yellow video cable isn't hooked up correctly.
Check to make sure the video cable (yellow) is hooked up to the same input on your television that your audio (red and white) cables are.

Wiring problems


Not certain if HDMI can be used in a setup like this. I'd try it from the home theater (HT) to the TV, and other wiring for the other components.

For video:
All of these should have component connections (Y/Pr/Pb). You'll only need the video cables for each device:
  • Video out from cable, HT, and combo player.
  • Video in to TV. Your choice of inputs.
For audio:
Hopefully, the two output devices (the combo player and the cable box) have digital audio (fiber optic, or RCA coaxial). Otherwise, you'll only get stereo sound. VHS is stereo only anyway.
  • Audio out from cable box and combo player.
  • Audio in to HT.
The TV won't have anything to do with audio in this setup. Alternatively, you could try hooking up all inputs to the TV, and connecting audio out from the TV to the HT. Works best if this connection is digital, for surround.

Hook up


The Bose GS can only support component video set-up for the best video definition. This video connection set-up uses three RCA cables to transfer the video signal from an output device (the Bose GS) to an input device (Your TV).

Check if the back of your GS system has a set of video out RCA ports that are titled "Comp Out". You TV should then have a "Comp In" video input RCA ports you can connect to.

Hope this helps.

Sony surround sound hookup


In short, the answer is: Hook up all three to each other. I have a Samsung DLP HDTV, and I was trying to hook up a Sony DAV-HDX500 home-theater system and a Comcast HD set-top box, but I found that the Sony user guide is helpful only for setting up the speakers. Most of what it had to say about HDMI and getting the TV sound or cable sound to go through the speaker system was wrong (or, at least, it didn't work for me). So, here's what I did. I connected Component video cables (Y/Pb/Pr out) from the Cable box to the TV (Y/Pb/Pr in), audio cables from the Cable box (audio out) to the Sony system ("SAT/Cable" audio in), and an HDMI cable from the Sony system (HDMI out) to the TV (HDMI in). This allows me to 1) watch DVDs with surround sound through the TV's HDMI source (when the "DVD" format is selected on the Sony system), 2) watch cable with surround sound through the TV's Component source (when the "SAT/Cable" format is selected on the Sony system), and 3) watch cable WITHOUT the surround sound, as I did before I ever had the Sony system. One item of note: When watching a non-HD channel with the surrond sound on, the audio is slightly out of synch with the video; thankfully, there's no such problem on HD channels. Anyway, I hope this helps. It drove me crazy for two days straight!

Hooking up a sony playstation 3 with digital optical cable


Here's one solution, if you have an audio output from your tv, you can go from the audio output on your tv to the audio input on your receiver that way anything that is playing on your tv for example, playstation 3, dvd player etc. Anything playing on your tv will have audio on your onkyo home theater system. The other thing I would try if you want to hook ps3 directly to receiver is go to your connection settings on your ps3 menu and change your connection method to digital optical cable.
