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.

Connect a RCA cable from the TV Audio output (red/white)
to the surround sound Audio Input (red White)
If your TV has a "HDMI OUT" and your Surround System has a
"HDMI Input" Then use a HDMI cable instead.
You will need to set the source on your Surround System to
the audio source you use on the surround system(input)
On most it will be TV or Auxiliary.
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.
The tv must have a stand alone audio output that you would connect the audio composite cables to going to the aux or audio input of the surround sound system. You may need to switch the surround sound system to aux mode or av input 1 or 2 and etc. If you are connecting a cable box or satellite tv box to this television instead of connecting the audio composite cables between it and the tv, connec them between it and the stereo surround sound system.
connect audio cables from the audio out jacks on your tv to the audio in jacks on your samsung surround. they may be labeled video 1,2 or aux. if your using a cable box the cable box may have optical or digital input jacks. your samsung surround should have a digital in jack which requires an optical cable.
For connections of audio, so that you can hear all tv audio through the surround system, connect either an optical audio cable or red & white analog audio cables from the tv to the home theater. If you are using optical audio, there is a plug on back of tv labeled for digital audio output and an input on the surround sound system. If you plan on using analog red and white, use the PROG OUT red and white output jacks on the back of the tv to the AUX input on the home theater.
For video connections, to get HD you will need to be using either HDMI or Component cables. HDMI is the cable that will provided 1080p signal (the best HD signal), but if the source does not output 1080p, then your tv will not display 1080p. Most cable boxes output at 1080i or 720p when on HD stations. This signal still provides great picture quality, but HDMI is not needed to get these HD signals. You can use component cables for your cable box and the DVD player output to the tv for video. HDMI might give you a slightly better picture quality but the signal will be the same.
To make the connection, you will want to connect from the cable box to the tv (component or hdmi). Also from the home theater system to the tv using hdmi or the video cables from component (red, blue, & green cables).
Connect the PS3 to your TV with the hdmi cable and to the surround sound system with a digital optical cable, then set your PS3 to output sound through the optical port (through the sound options menu) and you're good to go!
