    Hi,
    I recieved a regular amplifier (Cambridge Audio A1 VERSION 3) for Christmas and am wanting to know whether this can be linked up to my TV. There is a single scart socket in the back of my TV and 2 RCA sockets in the back of my amp. To make the matter even more complicated I have an xbox and want t be able to play on my xbox with the sound coming out of my speakers (which are linked up to my amp). I am assuming that is possible to link my amp to my TV because it says AV on the top of the sockets along with CD, Tape and AUX. Do I need to buy an AV amplifier for this to work?
    Thank you for any help given
    Andy

    Andy - Does your tv not have 2 rca outputs i.e. for stereo use (red & white). If you just connect these from your tv to the amp you should be able to utilise your stereo speakers for tv sound. I imagine you have only 2 speakers?

    If you want surround sound (i.e. 5 speakers) then you'll need an av amp or receiver.

    No, my TV is small and old and only has a scart and arial sockets in the back. But I have a block connecter from scart to 3 RCA. I tried linking 2 RCA leads (a red and a white) into this block from the back of my amp but it didn't work. I have a feeling that this will only work on the AV channel and not with the normal TV channels. Thanks for your help any way.
