If you have direct tv and a cable box a DVD a vcr with surround sound and you would like each one to be able to go through the surround sound how should you hook them all up?
I don't understand why you would have Direct TV (sattelite) and cable TV? However, it depends on the input/output combinations of each component. I have my coaxial cable from my sattelite to the sattelite in jack on the sattelite receiver, the out to TV coaxial from the sattelite receiver run to my …VCR plugged to antenna in on the VCR and a coaxial cable from the VCR to the TV coaxial antenna in on the TV. That way, you can watch sattelite without turning the VCR on, but the sattelite receiver has to be off to watch VCR or VHS tapes. Then, run video patch cords (red, white and yellow) out of the DVD to the TV (if the TV has those types of inputs on the back) If you want all three components (sattelite, VCR and DVD) to run through surround sound and NOT the TV, run only the yellow video cord from the DVD to the TV. Run the red and white to the surround sound receiver for each component. Your surround receiver should have multiple inputs for sattelite/cable, VCR and DVD. ( Full Answer )

best and only way varieson the type of wall you have in your house, if you have solid brick/block walls then the only real way is to chase the walls out with a proper chaser set to cut thinly or run an angle grinder with a wide cut diamond tip blade along your walls, once this is done then set your …wires and fill the chases , obviously this is messy and best done if your planning on decorating straight after.. alternativly if you own a house where internal walls are stud work( plaster board) then cut out a standard square where you intend your wires to enter this can then be covered with a joining plate available from most top end a/v suppliers( this allows you to connect your wires to the back of it and be left with just connectors showing to connect your a/v equipment too) you can then use a rod( a long flexible piece of metal with a hook on the end to draw your cables through the wall the the exit point( anither square cut to single plug socket size) again covering this with a plate from the a/v store.. i have done both installations over the last couple of years and must say that the plates are much neater and can be bought in all forms, i have behing my tv 5 plates with hdmi sockets, scart sockets and all my speaker wires terminating in connectors.

You can connect a sound system through your TV or the Sonystyle.com site has a new PS3 sound system for under $200 that was designed for the PS3
Technically . . . Yes. But it would all depend on the device pushing the signal to send the proper signals through the proper pins and the receiving device to recognize these signals on the same pins. The basic setup of this cable is just left and right audio signals, as well as video.
You take an HDMI cable and plug it into the HDMI port on the back, or side, of your TV. Than you take the other end and plug that into the HDMI Out port on the back of your receiver.
There are essentially two ways to get surround sound out of the Xbox. Via HDMI or via optical (TOSLINK) out. If you have the component video cable, then the end that attaches to the Xbox has an optical out port. Simply attach this to the optical in on your home theatre receiver with an optical cable…. If you want to use audio via HDMI, in order to get surround sound you'll have to have an HDMI receiver capable of receiving audio. In this case run the Xbox via HDMI to the receiver and then the receiver via HDMI to the TV. The HDMI will send both audio and video. If you have the official Xbox HDMI cable you can also connect the HDMI cable directly to the TV and use the optical out connector that it comes with instead. ( Full Answer )

it is normally possible to connect an HD cable box to non HD displays. In many cases, a dedicated output will provide an SD signal as a composite, S-video or component output. Some others will allow the HDMI or DVI output to be configured to supply an SD output. (Note that HDMI will handle SD or …HD signals and some SD televisions will have an HDMI input). It is wise to check that the cable box can output SD before making a purchase.\n. \nIt is important to realise that whatever the connection method, an HD signal used with an SD television will result in a standard definition image. All of the benefits of HD signals will be lost when the image is converted to SD. ( Full Answer )

How do i connect my projector to my PS3 and surround sound system each console only has one HDMI connection?
The PS3 is capable of outputting video from its HDMI port, while at the same time outputting audio from the PlayStation AV port. You would connect anyPS2/3 AV cable that had stereo RCA outputs (the pair of red and white plugs), but you would not connect the video plug(s) of that cable (S-video, RGB …plugs, or a yellow plug). You would leave the video connectors unplugged because you are using HDMI for video. But a better option would be to connect a cable from the PS3's optical audio port for surround sound. If your surround receiver has a digital optical audio input, use that. It will allow you to hear 5.1 channels of surround audio. The red and white RCA plugs can only support 2.0 channels of audio (stereo). ( Full Answer )

If it isn't, do so (it should be covered in the manual) 4) You may need to configure Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound for it to work. 5) Ensure the amplifier is turned on. Alternatively, you could connect your optical audio cable directly from what you are trying to rig up to the stereo. Either way should work. I hope that helped. ( Full Answer )
Connect Audio out on the box to Audio In on the TV set. Make the same connection for the VIDEO. Use Input 1 on the TV then select Video 1 on the remote, Use the INPUT button.

If speaker systems have Amplifier (home made).... Then you just combine their inputs so that ground couples with ground and signal input wires attached to the input wires or with connector.

The digital video interface on your cable box is not set up as an input. So, you cannot record the input from the xbox 360 onto your standard digital cable box even if it is an hd pvr. you need something like a capture device to record your xbox 360 video games. i prefer to use a newelectronx hd pvr… because i record retro games from Nintendo consoles. The hd pvr that I use allows me to record the xbox 360 and the Nintendo. Search around for some capturing devices and select the best one that will fit your needs. That is the best way to record xbox 360 video games. Alternately you can try a vcr, camera, internet software, or computer driven software and programs. ( Full Answer )
It depends on what kinda setup you have and what you are going for. If you have enough inputs on your receiver, you can have all your components connected to that then have the output of your receiver go to your TV. You would always have surround sound with this setup. If you only want surround soun…d at certain times then you can have everything ran to your TV and then have the audio out of your TV ran to your receiver, so when you wanted surround sound you would just turn on your receiver and turn it to where you have the TV connected. With this setup you would only have surround sound when you have your receiver on, so you would have to change the inputs on the TV. The other setup you would be changing your inputs on the receiver.

Ususally every receiver comes with a mic that you hook up to the receiver right after you hook up all the speakers and the sub. If your receiver doesnt already sense that the jack is in you may have to go to the menu manually. put the mic where you will usually be sitting the the area and at about h…ead height. now your speakers and sub will make different sounds, the receiver calculates these sounds and even measures your room by sound. now your surround system is set to go. remember you can always manually tweak you sound. hope this helps ( Full Answer )
The 3 COMPONENT cables are to be used if you don't have the HDMI connector.
A HDMI cable allows you to use high-definition output in many devices, such as a Blu-Ray player, HD DVD player, not just the Xbox 360. It will only work on compliant devices, however, such as HD monitors or TVs.
If your receiver has an HDMI input, use that. If it doesn't, then you will have to use analog or digital audio connectors to plug it in.
I connected my thinkpad laptop to my TV using an HDMI cable but I can't get the sound to come through my surround sound speakers - If I can't do that at least tell me how to use my TV speakers?

Depends on your system. I connect mine by plugging the audio cables from my avi cables into the back of my Sony surround sound. I used my Sony Home Theater model HTSF470 to connect both my PS3 and HDTV to it connecting the PS3 as a Blue Ray Disc all with HDMI cables and also My Comcast HD Cable b…ox is connected to the Sony Home Theater. When I use the PS3 remote to turn on the PS3 the HDTV switches from the Cable Box to the PS3 and so does the home theater ( Full Answer )
Yes aslong as both your computer and tv have HDMI. HDMI carries both picture and sound in hi def.
It will not work because it has to say if it is HD ready or not plus even if you did it would become blank.
HDMI cables support both vision and sound signals. Note that a DVI cable carries the same vision data but does not carry sound.
HDMI cables contain both the video and the audio signal, so you just plug it in and it should work.
Need to connect Sony Bravia klv32ex400 which has no clear audio-out port to 5.1 channel surround without HDMI so where do you connect the 5 cables from the surround sound system to the HDTV?
The KLV32ex400 has no surround output capability. The only audio output is a stereo 1/8" headphone jack. If you are using a Blu-Ray or HD cable or satellite receiver, you can run an optical or coaxial digital cable from those directly to the receiver for surround sound.
Well, there are lots of things to consider when buying a surround sound system: - the number of channels in the system (2.1, 5.1, 7.1, etc.) - the wattage of the amplifier in the system (a 400 watt system is going to be louder than a 200 watt amplifier, for example) - the wattage of each spea…ker in the system (again, the more watts, the louder the speaker) - the source of your audio (your game console may only output audio on two channels, or perhaps as many as seven) - the number of inputs/outputs you'll need (and the types of ports associated) - your budget (of course)! Be sure to check online retailers before going into a retail store - tigerdirect.com and newegg.com often have great prices on their audio equipment. Also, don't be afraid to look for used/older systems! If all you need is a five channel system, and you don't mind using RCA cables (the red and white cables we all know and love), it's quite possible that you can find a complete system with speakers for under $50 at a local second-hand store!

An HDMI cable connects from the Bell cable box to the surround receiver and then to the TV.
If you are using a Blu-Ray player and your blu-ray and surround receiver both have coaxial digital audio connectors, you can use those to connect the two, bypassing the TV for the audio.
Yes. HDMI carries both digital video and audio. This can cut down on the number of cables alternative connection methods may use.
How do you connect speakers that have an RCA cable coming out of them taken from a PC surround sound system to a surround sound receiver its a kenwood receiver with copper cable outlets?
If the speakers are not powered (they don't plug into the wall), you can cut off the RCA plug, strip back the wires to a negative and positive lead, and connect them to the speaker posts of the receiver.
The subwoofer connects to the surround sound receiver with an RCA cable. It plugs in to the LF (low frequency) or Sub output.
You cannot add an external reverb to a surround sound (Dolby Digital or DTS) signal connected through the digital input, such as a DVD player. Many receivers can add reverb and ambient echo to the sound themselves to emulate different venues. If you want reverb for your voice for karaoke, you can do… this inside the DVD player or by adding an external reverb processor that adds effects to the microphone cable signal. ( Full Answer )
Is it possible to use any surround sound system to connect my ps3 and tv up 2. N what cables would you need to do the job?
The optical output of the PS3 can be connected to older surround sound receivers. Newer receivers can be connected with the HDMI cable.
My system allows everything to be plugged into the Home theater or surround sound system and that to be plugged into the HDTV
Under video settings you need to choose hdmi, bit annoying but you have to connect it with the other connection first change the setting and then connect hdmi
It is possible that the signal coming from the source is corrupted. Digital cable and sattelite boxes sometimes have sound dropouts that cannot be fixed on your end.
DVI and HDMI cables are similar and compatible for digital video signals. HDMI also carries audio while DVI does not. If a DVI cable, connector or adapter is used anywhere in the signal path, the audio signal will be lost. As many computers have a DVI output and most televisions have HDMI inputs, …it is common to find at least one HDMI input on a television with a linked analog audio input. It is usually a 3.5mm jack socket near the HDMI connector. To make use of it, the television's menu setting allows either HDMI or analog audio to be selected. Consult your television user manual for full details. ( Full Answer )
The quality of the cable really has very little to do with the sound providing it is good and large enough to handle the power. Lamp cord often called zip cord would be fine unless you running over a 100 feet or very high power over 200 watts to the speakers.
Is it true that HDMI cables provide the best quality HD picture because the audio and video connections is in the same cable?
There is no truth in the statement. HDMI is an interface that carries digital audio and video signals. The image quality is dependent entirely on the quality and resolution of the signal that is delivered to the HDMI port by the video source. The HDMI connectors and cable carry that signal to the r…eceiver but the cable does not change it in any way at all. DVI is compatible with HDMI other than the fact that there is no audio carried with the video signal. The video signal is identical to that carried by an HDMI cable and so this alone proves that statement to be false. ( Full Answer )
The HDMI cable would stop transmitting sound once hooked up to a television if the television and laptop require another, separate, cord for the audio than the visual. The user may also need to set the television speakers on default rather than the computer or laptop speakers being set as default.
