You need a component video cable. This is the one with three ends, Red,Blue and Green. Dont spend more than 15-20 bucks for one. You can find them at home depot,walmart,lowes and radioshack but if you go to radioshack be prepared to have the salesman try and sell you one costing possibly a hundred bucks. Take it from the output of your coby system and into the corresponding input on your tv. Appears as this would be av1 input from your descirption.

The rest of the hookup like the speakers should be pretty self explanitory.

Are you sure your TV doesn't have an audio output? The red/white connections under "monitor out" should be your audio out.

For the DVD player video connection to the TV I would use component video (red, green, blue).

Here are the cables you would need.

Component Video Cable

You should be able to connect the red/white monitor out jacks to the aux input on your theater system.

Yes, just use the red/white connections from your TV and hook them up to the aux input on your theater system.

Use red, green, blue to av1 input on the tv.
Use red and white monitor out to aux1 on the Coby.

You should be set.

Connect the red/white audio outputs from the TV to an open red/white analog input on the receiver, assuming you have any.

If your TV doesn't have the aforementioned red/white analog audio outputs, you can't do it. fuggedaboutit.

Hello, I'm new so I wasn't sure if I'm suppose to make a new thread or go with this one. I tried to follow the instructions in this post, however, I'm still not getting any sound. Could you please tell me what I need to do. I want to be able to hear the sound from the TV at all times.


Here is the back of the TV it is a Hisense one I've never heard of before. Here's a shot of the back of the TV.

See back TV here

The home system looks like this one.
Amazon.com: Coby CSP97 300 Watts 5.1-Channel Speaker System, Black (Discontinued by Manufacturer): Electronics

I need to know where to stick the red/white and where to stick the green/blue/red cable too. No not that kind of sticking. Thanks in advance. :eek:

I can't find a manusl for your Coby unit so you'll have to do a little research on your own.

If it has a "coaxial digital input" you might be able to use it. If not, it doesn't look promising. One thing you give up when going for these budget units is flexibility.

Thank you very much. I know it's older. Someone gave it to my Dad and of course he always thinks it great and something better, when sometimes, it's not.

Here's a manual if that helps, the back is on page 6. http://dutchmen.com/image/data/documents/parts/Coby_Home_Theater_DVD_Player_DVD-925.pdf Thanks.

that manual helps me but, sad to say, not you.

the most common way to connect audio is through the red/white RCA jacks. But, both the source and target unit need these.

Another method connect audio is through a digital audio connection (orange jack) , either a coaxial wire or a fibre optic cable (toslink). Again, both the source and target unit need these.

the sad thing in this case is that it appears that the TV has a digital coaxial audio output (orange jack) but the Coby has a red/white analog input for the CD which would work if the TV had the corrosponding output.

Thank you so much. I do understand these things and sometimes items just need to go, but again, my Dad things all those things last forever. Maybe he had something else he can hook up. Thanks again for all your help. Dixie

Hi Dixie, and welcome to the forum!

To get audio from the TV to the Coby, the easiest way with that equipment is to use the "Headphone" jack on the TV, an inexpensive cable like this one to go from a 3.5mm headphone jack to stereo RCA plugs, and connect the RCA plugs to one of the Aux left/right inputs on the Coby.

To get video from the Coby to the TV, use the component video output on the back of the Coby (the green/blue/red cable that you mentioned) and connect that to the "COMPONENT" video input on the TV (which is right next to the headphone jack).

If I misunderstood and you want to send audio from the Coby to the TV, too, then you'd connect the left/right RCA audio outputs on the back of the Coby to the left/right audio inputs of the "COMPONENT" input on the TV - right next to where you connect the green/blue/red video cable.
