Basic help needed!




I have just bought a really cheap surround sound system to plug into my Sony KV28DX30 and am having major problems (it doesn't work). Hopefully someone can tell my what I am doing wrong.

First, the new bit is made my TCM and it's instructions come in German which doesn't help. There is one big sub woofer and 5 satellite speakers plug into this. From what I can see, you are supposed to plug the AV jacks into whatever source you fancy (there are a bunch supplied) and then you select which component is routed through the system. My Sony has a bank of 5 speaker type ports on the back which are supposed to be used for external speakers so my first problem is what do I plug my leads into?

The second problem is that if I try to manually connect any of the little satellite speakers to any of the 5 TV outputs I get naff all coming out of the speakers. In fact, when I go through the surround sound setup on the TV it just uses the internal speakers.

Any help would be much appreciated, as you will know my now - I do not have a clue what I am doing.
