Am I forgetting something?

I just bought a new TV and hooked up my old surround system. But it isn't working the same. I used to be able to turn the volume all the way down on the TV and still blast the reciever and the speakers. Now the speaker system will only turn up when the TV volume is up. Is their something I'm forgetting to do? Or are all TVs like this now?

Your old TV took off the sound before the volume control and the new one takes it off after that control. Not much you can do without going in and doing some rewiring. You could use a VCR for your TV tuner source and then you would be able to turn down your TV sound and still get sound to your surround system. Good luck.

How do I get my new LG OLED 65C1PU TV to play through my old Pioneer VSX-D507S surround system?

Old technology and new technology often don't mix. Your television is new and geared up for Bluetooth and HDMI, your old surround sound system is composite video and audio. You need to test the television with something else, and then check the surround sound with a different input. If they both work then you know it is a compatibility issue. Your best bet is a new Bluetooth Sound Bar that is as good as the television.

A similar issue was posted here yesterday, so you are not alone.

We have a new TV, old surround sound, old dvd player & want to get Blu-ray player with component video output to work with our surround sound. Is this possible & Which Blu-ray player?

component video output is not going to help you hook it up to a surround system. component video is just that - video. No audio signal is carried on it. You would be better served hooking your blu-ray player to the tv via hdmi cable and then running an optical cable from either your blu-ray player or your tv to the surround system (assuming your surround system has an optical input).

Hi, I just bought a blu ray home theatre system and hooked it up, the surround sound sounds great but it only works when my watching a movie with the blu ray player... I hooked the blu ray player to my tv...

If you want everything to have surroud sound, it all has to run through your system and you select which function to use. Yes it sounds like improper connections.

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.

I had my system hooked up to my old tv to use the surround sound. I bought a new HD TV and can not figure out how to hook it up.

Look on the back of your tv for the same kind of jacks that are on your old one. Make sure you know what input you will be using for your reciever.

Have to turn way up in order to hear

Have you gone into the TV's menu to make sure that the audio outoput is not set to "variable"?

On my Sony I have the option to set the audio output as "fixed or "variable"

make sure its set to fixed

if that's not it try a different input on your receiver. you can use anything EXCEPT PHONO.

Lastly on my Denon receiver I have to specify how each input should get its signal if you are using an optical cable then you may have to go into the menu and tell it to look for a digital signal not an analog one.

Hope that helps

Vizio Sound Problem

I've seen the same problem, went thought a couple of cable boxes. Turned out to be an AC line problem. Try plugging the TV into a different out, maybe in another part of the house.

Hooking up new tv to surround sound

I recently purchased a vizio 37" LCD tv, I have tried everything in hooking up my Sony DVD surround system to the TV. However, I found no audio output on this TV. Could you tell me if there is a way to hook the tv directly up to the surround without an output?
Is there something else I need to buy?
