    I just bought a new 32" Sony Wega Trintron TV and a Sony 5.1 Channel 1000watt Home Theatre System (progressive scan DVD/CD/MP3) AM/FM tuner, anyway... I went thru and hooked everything up and it's AWESOME to watch movies on :bowdown::bowdown: But I cannot get the TV Audio to work thru the Home theatre system. :hs: I want to be able to watch the football and hockey games in surround sound :bowdown: But can't. I just realized this morning that my BRAND NEW SONY TV doesn't have any audio out's.... Yet the 10year old off brand 27" i had before, did :ugh2:

    Is there anything I can buy/do to be able to get the TV Audio to run through my Surround Sound??

    If anyone can give me some useful help, I would greatly appreciate it.

    There has got to be some kind of converter or something out there that I can use?? I just don't know where to look or what it would be called.

    Someone please help me out :x::x:

    If you upgrade to hd cable or satellite you'll get the digital audio outs usually optical that you can hookup to the receiver. For now, you should atleast have an audio out or monitor out on the back of the tv. You can hook up a set of audio cables to your receiver using those. Now Sony is pretty gay with their audio outputs. If you don't get any sound you usually need to go into the sound menu on the tv, in there you need to select fixed or variable audio. Sony, for the most part, does not let you select fixed without it turning off the tv speakers. So you may have to do that. Hope that makes sense.

    :hs:

    This didn't make much sense.

    In the specs of the TV it says it has no Audio Outs :hs: Which I didn't realize until looking into it this morning. (that is, none that I could tell anyway :dunno: )

    I don't have any cable. Just a regular antenna. I might look into getting basic cable service thru comcast here in the next month or so. And really the only thing I would want to use the surround for is football on sundays, and football/hockey if I get cable :bigthumb:

    Is the TV HD? If so you should get an HD reciever box and antenna. I bought one from radio shack last year for around $100. It has a digital out so that I can get surround sound through my receiver.

    Why did you not buy an HD set? Return that POS immediately.

    Didn't realize it wasn't HD. I didn't know they made tubes that were larger than 27" and not HD anymore. Only way you can do it is cable/sat box or if you desperatly need it you can hook up a vcr and use the line out on that for the audio to feed into your receiver. Your picture quality will degrade somewhat, but you'll have "surround sound".

    I purchased an iPod stereo hook-up where it has the audio-in cables hooked into the stereo and the headphone jack (that usually goes in the iPod) hooked into the headphone part of my tv. works perfect
