How to Hook Up Surround Sound With a Satellite Receiver


You can connect a variety of different audio/video devices to a surround sound system, including a satellite receiver. This gives you the ability to hear all the television programming with the extended speaker system. Even if the show isn't produced with a surround sound signal, you can still enjoy an increased stereo output from the multiple speakers.

Things You'll Need

  • Surround sound receiver
  • Satellite receiver
  • RCA audio cables
  • Plug the red and white RCA audio cables into the "Audio Out" ports on the back of the satellite receiver.

  • Insert the opposite end of the red and white RCA cables into the "Audio In" port on the surround sound receiver.

  • Power on the satellite receiver and the surround sound receiver. Press the input number button that correlates to the input to which your satellite receiver is connected to make all of the audio from the programming travel to the surround sound receiver instead of the television.

Tips & Warnings

  • It doesn't matter what in-port you use of the multiple audio in connections. However, take note of the number next to the inputs. You need this when adjusting what audio connection is projected on the receiver.
