All of our devices have to have toslink plugs for those cables to work. If not, you will have to get all sorts of adapters. PIA

SOURCE: Need to connect my DSTV decoder through my sony

well this is easier than you think, get yourself a set of RCA's (the red and white and yellow cables that DVD players come with) look behind your decoder and place them colour to colour, then behind your Amp you will read (TV IN) do the same, then with just one yellow RCA plug it into (monitor) that one will then go to the (AV input) behind your TV.. And presto!!! now set your amp input on the remote to TV and your off!! good luck

SOURCE: Hi. I've got a Denon AVR-1907

Have you considered your source may be the problem if the receiver isn't?

You say setup is correct. If so it would work, no?

Have bought a Panasonic soundbar SC-HTB8. No connection cable included. Which cable do we need to buy to connect Soundbar to tv please?


You will need an optical digital audio connection for the TV and the TV will have to be fitted with a compatible "optical digital audio" OUT connection.
The soundbar unit you have does not have an HDMI connection so you only have the one choice with cable..
Any electronics store selling cables will fit you with the correct one.
The one pictured here next to the HDMI cable is the type you need (aka Toslink) but if you don't have an Optical digital Audio Out connection on your TV you have a problem.

I need some help hooking up an amp, tv, and xbox 360 together please! I have a Toshiba 46g310u TV and Xbox 360 already hooked up together using an HDMI cable. I just bought a Yamaha R-S300 amplifier,...


Many TVs have to have the optical output enabled in a set-up menu. Do you see red when the connector is disconnected (which doesn't necessarily mean that it is active, just that it is 'ON').

Have you checked the amplifier to insure that the input is working by connecting something else directly up to it? Can you test the TOSLINK converter by plugging the output into something else to determine where the problem lies. I still suspect it is in the menus of the TV.

Connect with componet cables.


The only digital audio input for this TV will be via the HDMI input. Of course, even with HDMI in, you're only going to get a simple stereo output from the TV. You can use the analog L & R audio inputs for a very similar sound from the TV speakers.

The digital multi-channel audio (Dolby Digital, THX, 5.1, 7.1, etc) encoded in the program should be connected to a suitable multi-channel amplifier with either a TOSLINK (optical), RF (coaxial) or HDMI cable for theatre-like sound. This can be done by (a) cabling from the source (DVD, BluRay Disk, Set Top TV Tuner, etc.) directly to a multi-channel amp and speakers, or (b) from the HDMI output of these devices (DVD, BluRay Disk, Set Top TV Tuner, etc.) into one or both of the TV's HDMI inputs. This will provide only stereo sound output from the TV speakers. You should connect the TV's TOSLINK optical "Digital Output" jack with an optical cable to the amplifier's TOSLINK optical input jack to obtain theatre sound.

To listen to the program shown, you would select the amplifier input assciated with the optical, RF or HDMI input that is connected to the source (DVD, BluRay Disk, Set Top TV Tuner, etc.) if connected directly. If the TV HDMI input(s) are used, they are output to the TV optical output and should be connected to the amplifier optical input. The amp input associated with the optical input should be selected to hear the program with theatre-like sound.

I have a DVD surround sound system. Old no hdmi. But has optical. Can I connect it to my 50. Lg tv by way great tv.


As long as your 50 in. LG TV has an Optical Out, and your DVD surround sound receiver has an Optical Input, you can connect the 2 using a Digital Optical TOSlink Cable.

Connecting sony dvd home theatre with led tv


If your Dvd player has HDMI out, then use this to take the picture to the TV. If it only has scart, then use this. Use a fibre-optic TOSlink cable to connect the audio from the TV to the Home Theater. If the home theater doesn't have Optical in, then use red and black phono(rca) cable.

I want to connect external speakers to TV in order to watch a DVD with better speakers. I do not know where to plug them in.


On your tv you only have a Digital audio output (optical) ( TOSLINK ) which means that you can connect to it only a receiver that has an optical entry and only to it you can connect some speakers.

Different sound levels dvd and cable hdtv yamaha htr-6130


Well, first of all, the method you are using is the lowest quality. You should upgrade to a toslink(digital optical cable) or a digital RCA cable. The toslink is the best all around. But it is normal for some devices to have higher sound output than others.

I want to set up my surround sound i need to know what the cable looks like for digital in and video in looks like is it a fiber optic


That is called a TOSLink cable, it is indeed fiber optic. It is for digital audio only, video is carried by HDMI (which also carries digital audio), component video cables, S-video cable, coaxial cable, or RCA jacks.

For your surround sound from a DVD player, connect your digital audio from the DVD to the receiver's input, then the video out from the DVD to the receiver's input. Now the video out from the receiver goes to the TV and the surround sound should now be coming through your speakers. Post again in this thread if you need more help or explanation.
