Ok I have a sony wega TV and want to get sound to my 7.1 speakers rather than using the tv speakers. I have the speakers hooked to my consoles, dvd player and would like the sound to play from my from my tv to the speakers when watching programs and shows.

I have these speakers

I have this decoder

I live in the UK. What lead do I need to hook it to the tv to get sound from it. I'm guessing it would be a lead that goes to the analog input of the decoder?

hmm...if you just talking about analogue TV sound then on the TV you should have a pair of stereo Left & Right outputs (like a CD player does, ya know, red and white sockets?), buy a stereo to stereo RCA cable (JVC do some nice but cheapish ones in shops like Dixons) and plug it in to the TV, then the other end should plug in to the Decoder....unless its already used up by your consoles....if thats the case you might be able to go Digital, if your TV has an Optical or Coaxial digital output you should be able to get away with that.....regardless of which you use, your Decoder will be able to play the sound either in stereo or in Dolby Pro Logic 2 over all the speakers...

from what i can tell anyway.....

I'm not saying that I would necessarily recommend Argos for this stuff but I've given a link because it has a good picture and you are bound to have one nearby

Before rusing off to buy one of these you need to check that both your TV and decoder have sockets that match these.

Cheers,

Ok I bought this lead and I still dont get sound through the speakers. I hooked it up one end to the white and red inputs of the tv and the other end to the white and red inputs of the analog holes on the decoder. I did not get any sound. Its strange because my GC works fine through the analog inputs on the decoder so I know its not a fault with the decoder. Also I remember trying this before and getting the same problem so its not the leads either.

Have you selected the correct input on the decoder?

Yup, selected analog 2 which is what its been inserted into. I tried the other analog inputs just in case but no sound.

do you have sky by any chance? if yes then you can use the white and red on the bk of the sky box to connect to your decoder!

You need to be connecting to the tvs audio outputs (if it has any) rather than the inputs. However,if you are using a satelite, cable or freeview box then the best option is to connect the audio outs from this to your amp (or whatever it is powering your speakers) instead of the tvs outputs.

If you are wanting to connect straight from the tv and there's no audio outs on the back then you could use a scart to phono lead if you have a spare scart socket.
