Yes it is possible and relatively simple to do. I suspect you have only connected an HDMI cable from the Home Theater system (HT
) to the TV. This cable only sends
audio and video to the TV from the HT system - it can't be used to receive the audio from the TV back to the HT.
To get audio from the TV channels through the HT speakers, you will need to connect a separate audio cable from the AUDIO OUT
sockets on the TV to the HT. This can be either a Digital Optical
cable (connects to socket ringed in green) or an RCA
type stereo audio cable (connects to AUX
sockets ringed in red).
If you are using a cable or satellite receiver, you should connect the receiver directly to the HT rather than the TV. You would also need to select the correct INPUT
on the HT when you want to use the speakers for the TV channels. This will be DIGITAL 1
if using the digital optical cable or AUX
if using the RCA stereo audio cable.
The audio connections are explained on page 16 of your user manual and input selection is explained on page 23. If you don't have a manual, please let me know and I can supply one.
I can draw you a diagram showing how to connect your TV to the HT and provide step-by-step instructions for setting it up, but you will need to let me know the brand and model number of your TV. If you are using a cable or satellite receiver, please let me know the brand and model number of this receiver as well.
Hope this helps.
