i have just bought this tv as a 2nd tv for our house:

and my son bought these speakers because he thought they would improve the sound:

but we are having trouble hooking everything up and was just wondering how to wire it up.

there are pictures on both those links of the connectors on both sub unit and tv.
cheers for any help u can give as it is getting annoying not being able to use these.

Having a quick look there does not seem to be an audio out on the TV unless it is available from one of the Scart sockets?
The speaker system was designed to connect to a PC with three 3.5mm to stereo phono cables.
If sound out is avaibale from the TV via Scart then you will require a Scart cable that has audio out only with two phono connections and these will need to be connected to the Fl and Fr connections on the speaker system, and hope that the speaker system will up mix the stereo input to feed all the speakers.

To get surround sound you need three things:

1. A surround source (such as DVD or some Sky channels such as movies).

2. Surround Speakers

3. A way of getting the surround signal to the speakers. This is most often done with an optical or coax digital lead and a surround amp.

You may have 1, you haven't said, you have 2 but you don't have 3. In other words your speakers only have analogue inputs and you almost always need digital to get Dolby (that's why it's called Dolby Digital!).

You need to get a separate dolby decoder with the relevant 5.1 analogue outputs (but I'm afraid they're not that cheap).

Either that or just plug in the front L & R speakers - if possible via the subwoofer which will be needed by the looks of it.

Sorry! :rolleyes:

This is the sort of thing. That one is a bit pricey for what you want though!
