Direct tv digital service - hooking up my stereo with speakers
(hilton hrad sc usa)
I have direct tv digital service. I would like to hook up my stereo with speakers and sub woofer along with my dvd player and vcr player to play through my speaker system. Now I have tv leaking sound when I use my dvd player for music or movies.
I'm not sure if you are planning to use 5.1 surround sound, or just a stereo setup with a subwoofer. Either way, you would hook up your system something like this for surround sound:
Or like this for stereo sound:
The exact connections you have will depend on the source of your sound/picture. Every TV source will need a way of sending the audio to the amplifier. If there is also audio over the TV speakers, then turn the TV speaker volume off. The external amplifier will be controlling all the sound.
All the best.
