Hooking TV so sound comes through home theater system

 

Unregistered guest
I have a Curtis DVD Home Theater System 300W with 5 speakers and a woffer, and want it hooked up so that I can get TV sound through the theater system.

I dont have outputs-only inputs on our Citizen TV. Is it possible to do this?

I am having the same problem. I have a Sony system (don't have the model number here at work) and the manual says I just have to hook a video cable from the "monitor out" on the back of the TV to the "monitor in" on the back of the receiver. However, my TV (a five-year old Panasonic) doesn't have a monitor out.

Is there a way around this problem? Thanks for any advice. Hopefully, it'll help you too, T.I.

If you don't have a cable or satellite box then I would say not. At a minimum you need a stereo signal from you TV tuner. Most older TV's are not going to provide that and most newer ones rely on a better audio source such as mentioned above.

So, what to do. You can purchase a TV with stereo outputs or get cable or satellite. :o(

Common issue, wish I could offer more.
