View Full Version : NO TV Sound from my AMP
30-09-2003, 06:15 PM
I bought a new AV Reciever today, (Eltax AVR-200) I am using the digital coaxial cable to connect my DVD player to my AV Receiver and from there to my surround sound speakers.
The sound from the DVD is fine, however i cannot get ANY sound from my TV through my new speakers. MY TV is a TV - Video Combi made by Aiwa product code VX-D2120.
The TV is only connected to the DVD player using a scart lead, i cannot see any other way of connecting the TV to the AV Reciever, PLEASE HELP.
Thanks in advance

Welcome to the forum. :thumbup:
You'll need a phonocable from the "audio out" on the TV/VCR combo to get sound from the TV.
If the TV does not have this output you'll need a scart to RCA audio out. And if your TV only has one scart, you'll need a scart splitter aswell. :?~:-?~:???:
It aint easy is it? :lol:

LOl - ok where does this cable scart to RCA go in the Reciever because the manual suggests it goes in a SINGLE connector and from my understanding of car stereo RCA are normally double connectors?

The cable will have a Scart connector at one end and 2 RCA connectors at the other end. You plug the 2 RCA connectors into one pair of L and R audio-in connectors on the back of the amp (one pair may be labelled specifically for TV/Cable use).
If you have Sky or Freeview, you can avoid this by just connecting the digibox to the receiver instead (depending on the connections on your digibox of course).

Well i did all you suggested and there is now sound coming from the TV, the only problem is that its ony coming through the centre speaker - is this normal?
I am using an electronic scart splitter and a switchable scart to RCA lead.

Check what sound settings you are using on the amp. Most TV shows like the news are just dialogue so if you're using DPLII it will just appear to be coming out of the centre speaker anwyay. Try changing the sound settings to something like 5 channel stereo and see what happens (I wouldn't suggest leaving it on that, just to check). Also, wait for a film to come on as these are often broadcast in Dolby Surround and so you'll hear stuff in the rears (depending on the film of course).
