Okay i m really hoping there is some out there that can help me with my problem, i m trying to watch a Sony analog t v model number KV-27S40 Thru my Curtis dvd 5041 home theatre system, i allso have a Toshiba dvd/vcr player in the mix model number SD-KV550SU . I have no problem playing a dvd or cd thru the curtis system getting the full surround sound affect. but i cant figure out how to watch regular t v thru the surround sound system i thought if i ran component cables from out of the toshiba dvd/vcr player to the curtis system that would help, i even ran a rca jack from the coaxle out port of the toshiba player to the curtis coaxle input of the curtis surround sound system , still i cant figure it out

Welcome to eCoustics Anthony!

The problem with the low cost Home theater is the number of imput available, you can use a cheap imput selector to switch the sound between the Toshiba and your TV or buy a automatic video selector to hook both on it!

Manual selector:

Automatic selector:

I have the last then it work fine

I just purchased a curtis dvd 8532 home theater sytem 5 in 1 with Blu ray and I set everything up but it will not read any of my DVD's as I tried going thru setup and did the things for other models that were posted on this site but nothing works. It just keeps clocking!
I purchased this at Big Lots for $160. Any ideas?

Curtis HiTB are not very good and you should return it, you get what you pay for. Check out an Onkyo HiTB set up it will be more money but it will work.

Will a Curtis DVD8532 play sound through the TV and not just the dvd player? If so can someone please tell me how?
