Perhaps you should provide the make and model of your "radio speaker" and TV. That would help tremendously.

My radio model are Sony HCD-G202 and my HDTV Panasonic TC-32A410

 

thank you

Unfortunately there is no way to connect your TV to the Sony system as the Sony has no inputs at all.

That's the problem with all in one units like that as there are no options to connect external devices.

OK but I saw on ebay some adapter...... there something to connect wire into an adapter switch (IN) and after on the other side (OUT) the RCA plug ?

 

See my 2 pictures I made.

How do any of those enable him to connect a TV to the receiver when the receiver has no audio inputs?

In addition to that the Panasonic TV only has an optical output.

This. Better off buying power speakers with optical in.

I have a receiver TV.... ????? Can I do something ?

 

The third image, is not the solution that I can do ?

Those adapters will not do what you want. They're used to take the speaker output from an amplifier and convert it to a line-level signal, which can then be fed into an input on another device. They're commonly used when adding an external power amplifier to an existing head-unit in car audio installations. But what you need is a line-level input on your Sony radio/amp, so that you can feed the output of your TV into the radio/amp. You don't have that.

Also, your HDTV doesn't have an analog audio output anyway. So even if your Sony radio/amp had an input it *still* wouldn't work without adding an external DAC (digital-to-analog) audio adapter. And there are additional issues that could be encountered there.

If you want to use different speakers with your HDTV then you have two reasonable options. The first option is to purchase a soundbar with HDMI or optical ("toslink") input. The second option is to purchase a new or used A/V ("stereo") receiver with HDMI or optical ("toslink") inputs.

No. You could use those to physically connect speakers to an HDTV (if the HDTV has analog audio outputs --- which yours does not) but the resulting lash-up would not work. There would be no output from the speakers. There is no way to make this work with your TV and your Sony radio/amp/speakers.

Can I buy this, this are good for my situation and plug my speaker on this A/V receiver and use rado and TV from speakers ?

 

Receiver A/V from Pioneer moel VSX-523-K


skriefal's Avatar skriefal 07:04 PM 05-26-2014
Now you're on the right track! The Pioneer VSX-523-K will work very nicely for you. However, the speakers that are included with those all-in-one systems are often "odd" (of a non-standard impedance), which may prevent them from working properly with the Pioneeer receiver (or with any amp other than the Sony that they were sold with). Is there an impedance rating printed on a sticker on the back of the speakers? It'll be something like "4 ohms", or "16 ohms", or similar. You'll also need to check the type of connector on the speakers, as those all-in-ones sometimes use weird/non-standard speaker connectors.

I have a question, at the back of my HDTV I have:

 

A/V component audio IN

2 HDMI port

1 digital audio port

 

My question is, why I cannot buy the wire below if I have A/V audio component (white, red, yellow) ?

 


skriefal's Avatar skriefal 07:23 PM 05-26-2014
The A/V Component plugs on your TV are an input, to feed an audio/video signal into the TV. You'd use those to connect a VCR, laserdisc player, or an older gaming system (e.g. a Nintendo Wii, Sega Genesis) to the TV. They cannot be used as an output. That adapter will not work.

Modern HDTVs simply aren't designed to be used with "vintage" audio amplifiers. They don't have the necessary connections (outputs) to make that work. And even if they did, your Sony radio/amp doesn't have an input that could accept the output from the TV. And connecting the speakers directly to the TV won't work either, because you would not have an amplifier to supply power to the speakers.
yapp12's Avatar yapp12 07:46 PM 05-26-2014

So my only solution is to buy A/V Receiver or Soundbar ?

 

Now the model I send you are good ?

The Samsung HT-H5530 are good , I can buy from Airmiles !


skriefal's Avatar skriefal 09:27 PM 05-26-2014
That will work. But there are some potentially limiting factors that you should be aware of. The Samsung H5530 has zero HDMI inputs. But it does support HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel). So if you purchase any other HDMI-based devices -- like a Roku, or FireTV, or Xbox One, or Playstation 4 -- you'll need to connect those directly to your TV. And then use the ARC feature to feed the audio back to the Samsung H5530 over its single HDMI connector. A little limiting, but it will work as long as you can run the extra HDMI cables to your TV. Also, the Samsung H5530 uses non-standard speaker connectors... so you will not be able to ever upgrade the speakers. But that might not matter to you...

This converter are good ?

 

 

 

 

  

 

======================================

 

 

This adapter is designed to convert HDMI signal to RCA, Coaxial, Toslink and HDMI.
This decoder supports Linear PCM (stereo).
Supports sampling rate at 48 kHz.
Input DC 5V, adapter charger included.

 


skriefal's Avatar skriefal 10:12 PM 05-26-2014
The first converter won't work. It converts analog video and audio to HDMI. That's not what you want. The second converter most likely won't work. It would need to support HDMI ARC (which it probably doesn't), and would also require an analog audio input (red + white 'RCA' connectors) on your Sony amp. It was stated above that your Sony amp does not have an input. Can you verify that statement?

If you Sony amp does not have an analog audio input then there is no converter available that would work. You can keep looking and hoping but you won't find anything. You'll need a different amplifier, and possibly also different speakers. Or a soundbar with HDMI or opttical/toslink input.
skriefal's Avatar skriefal 10:22 PM 05-26-2014
I'll recommend this to you -- shop your local Craigslist site (or similar classifieds web site) for an older A/V receiver that has an optical (toslink) digital input. Then connect your TV's optical digital output to the A/V receiver's optical digital input. Make sure that you set the TV (via its menus) to send a standard PCM stereo signal through the optical digital output. That will work for you -- if your speakers are compatible -- and you can probably do this for $50 or less.

Or buy the Samsung system that you linked above.

Yes yes I know but I would like to know if the image on post #24 are good ?


skriefal's Avatar skriefal 07:40 AM 05-27-2014
You're asking if you'll get a good image (picture) when using one of those HDMI adapters? The first type of adapter converts a composite video signal (and analog audio) to HDMI. I have not used one of these so cannot state whether it would be good. The second type of adapter passes through the HDMI video signal untouched, and separates out the audio signal. These are okay... if you have a use for them.
yapp12's Avatar yapp12 07:47 AM 05-27-2014

So I can take the second picture adapter for my sound speaker and image right or not ?


skriefal's Avatar skriefal 10:11 AM 05-27-2014
It is not clear what you are hoping to do with that adapter. It will not allow you to connect your existing Sony amp/speakers to your TV. That would require an analog audio input on your Sony amp, which you've stated above that you do not have.

Were you hoping to use it for something else? You'll need to provide more details.
