Without that part you have no inputs to the system so that's why you are struggling.
First time poster I'm afraid but i could really use some help. Apologies if this is straightforward and people think i should just try harder.
I've recenntly switched from a Sky box to a TalkTalk YouView box and I've had some issues getting it all connected and working again.
There are three things i would like to connect:
1. Panasonic TH-42PWD5 (yes this is quite old - but worked find before)
2. Yamaha DVR-700 Surround sounds/DVD player
3. TalkTalk YouView box.
The issue is that although i can get YouView picture on the TV - i cannot get any sound - either through the TV or through the speaker system.
I can howeber get both sound and video when playing a DVD. So i assume the issue is getting sound from the YouView Box either into the TV or into the Surround sound.
My TV does not have an HDMI connection. So i am using the YouView SCART connection into the back of the TV. It's a SCART into the back of the YouView box - then the cable splits into video and Audio L/R. All three are plugged into the back of the TV.
I'm afraid I'm really not sure if sound goes via the TV or not? I have been unable to connect the YouView box to the Yamaha system.
The other Audio option (i think?) is the SPDIF output on the Youview box - but what would i plug this into? Neither the TV not the Yamaha have an SPDIF hole.
I'm happy to simply use the TV sound for now - but can't even seem to managed that.
