How to Connect a TV to a Stereo and DVD

Save

If you're setting up a home theater, connecting your television and your DVD player to a stereo will allow you to experience regular television content as well as DVD movies in surround sound. You'll need to hook audio cables from both the TV and the DVD player into the stereo.

Things You'll Need

  • Audio and video cables
  • Locate the audio and video cables that came with your DVD player and your stereo. These cables will be required to connect all of the equipment in your home theater (your TV, stereo and DVD player) to each other.

  • Plug one end of the audio and video cables that came with your DVD player into the audio and video outputs on the back of the device. There will be three cables: one for video (yellow) and two for audio (red and white). Plug the other end of the cables into the same colored inputs on the back of your stereo.

  • Note the label above the inputs you used to connect your DVD player to your stereo in Step 2. You will have to switch the stereo to this input if you want to hear the audio and see the video being transmitted by your DVD player.

  • Plug one end of the audio cables (red and white) that came with your stereo into the outputs on your television set. Plug the other end of the cables into the same colored inputs on the back of your stereo.

  • Turn on your TV, your stereo and your DVD player. Switch the stereo to the input used by your DVD player's audio and video cables and put a disc into the unit for playing. You will now see the video from the DVD player on your television set while hearing the audio from the DVD player over your stereo's speakers.
