    Hey guys please help, tried many times, epic failure :p

    TV - Sony Bravia - 46XBR2
    Amp - Sony - DAV-FX900W
    Cable Box - Scientific Alanta - Explorer 3250HD

    Currently
    Cable from wall -> Cable Box -> TV

    Therefore audio and video comes out from the TV speakers.

    What I want to achieve:

    Audio coming out from the 5 speakers hooked to the amp when I am watching something from cable TV

    What I've tried

    TV Audio Out -> Amp (TV/Cable 1)

    No sound :(

    Please help!! thx much~~

    Hi Piyopiyo

    Welcome to the forums. :hiya:

    The best way to get the audio into your Amp, would be to take the audio out from your cable box into the amp, with the video out into your TV..

    If you use the component (The red and white Audio out) you should get stereo through your amp, but for 5.1, you'll need to use the Digital Audio Out --> Coax Digital Input on the amp.

    For the Video, you can use the most convenient (component [yellow], S-Video or DVI. Depends on your TV)

    So, you'll end up with this:

    Cable from wall --> Cable Box
    --> Audio (Digital Audio Out) --> Amp (Digital In)
    --> Video --> TV

    OK.. so do you get sound/picture if you try this:

    Cable from wall
    --> Cable Box (Cable IN)

    **Don't use Cable OUT**

    Cable Box (Yellow Video out)
    --> TV (Yellow Video IN)

    Cable Box (Red and White Audio OUT)
    --> AMP (Stereo/Red and White IN)

    The TV should have a name for the yellow IN (AV3, Aux, whatever) put yout TV to that

    The Amp should also have a name for the Red and White IN (CD/DVD/Aux/TV --> It depends where you plugged it in) make sure the amp is set to receive on that input.

    Anything?

    No worries... Glad you got it sorted :)

    Happy watching..

    However, you only have stereo at the moment. If you wanted surround sound, you should look at using the digital audio out on the Cable box --> Coax Input on the Amp
