Hi everyone,
Sorry if this has been covered before i searched around for a bit but couldnt find a straight answer..
Im not a newb to A/V hookup but i've gotten to a point of surrender...

Basically i have my TV, stereo, PS2 and Roku player im trying to hookup all to my stereo so the audio will be nice and loud.

Currently my PS2 is the only thing connected to the stereo so the only time i can enjoy loud audio is when playing game/movie..
Basically i want to add my tv and Roku box to that so that the tv and roku can play through the stereo also..

Here is a diagram of my current situation.


Like i said, the only time i get to use the stereo is when my PS2 is on..i still have regular audio when watching regular tv and my Roku box has regular audio also (through the tv)

I recently bought a A/v adapter...just cant get it all hooked up right...


Im thinking i may need something like this? I would hook one end to back of stereo plug(video out) and then connect the Roku video to one end and the TV video to the other end? I dunno then would the audio still work?


Any help is greatly appreciated..

No, no amp or receiver...that may be my problem..i figured their might have been a easy way around it..

Cant splice A/V cables can you?

Then what is the "stereo"? An A/V Receiver (AVR) is what's commonly called a stereo these days...

You can split analog audio (RCA) with the Y-adapter you showed, connect one leg to the TV and the other to the AVR/stereo.

I assume that boombox has only one set of RCA input jacks, then, correct? Hence the external switch?

Your Y-cable solution will work fine. Split the audio from the Roku, one going to the TV, the other to the switch. And your TV is already on the switch, so with all that connected then to the boombox, you should be set.

Mostly, but not completely. smile.gif You did figure out the Y-cable by yourself!

The "stereo" drawing you provided is not to scale but it is representative of a boom box. wink.gif

Yes it has the red/yellow/white plug in the front and then a yellow video out in the rear which connects to the tv

I'll try that and see what happens...
