I would like to hook up the 5.1 speaker system to my TV. I purchased a 5.1 game console Adapter convert RCA plugs to the three 1/8 plugs but can't get any sound. Do I need to do something special to make it work. I am a novice so any help would be greatly appreciated. amk
1. Do you have sound coming from tv even after connecting and turning on the speaker?
2. Which speaker do you have there?
3. Check through the menu in your tv, check the speaker/sound setup.
4. From where did you connect the RCA cable, to the tv in or tv out or what? since you are novice, you might have connected the tv in to speaker, in that case, it wont work. connect the tv out or if you have set top box, connect the audio out of box to speaker.
